sly : marketing


My name is Jens-Petter Berget. I am the author of slymarketing. The blog is mainly about marketing and writing. I am working with community development in the city of Halden, Norway.

What I write

I first created this blog in order to learn marketing, and to teach you what I have been learning. I created the blog in order to get in touch with like-minded people, that’s people with a passion for marketing. I wanted to share my thoughts, and I wanted to learn. It’s the same today, several years later.

I have published one short story on Amazon. The story is called Fuzzy. I have written my first novel, it’s called Lizarraga, and it was published for the Kindle (Amazon) in February 2013.

I’m still writing about my experience with marketing, for instance with posts like, where I buy my premium wordpress themes. But I’m also writing about my personal experiences in life. It’s a personal blog, and I don’t just write about marketing. I write about what comes to my mind, and sometimes when I shouldn’t have hit the publish button, I do it anyway. That’s part of being a personal blog.

The writing process

I write every single day, but most of what I write will never be published. Usually, I publish an article on this blog two times a week, but sometimes I’ll publish once a week, and other times I might publish every day of the week. What you need to know is that you’ll get fresh content every week, that’s a promise.

When I get an idea, I try to write it down, either on a piece of paper, on my iPhone or on my MacBook, or I might try to remember the idea. It all depends on where I am and what I’m doing.

I use different software to structure my blog posts. And, I am always testing new apps. I have added a page for all my marketing communication tools.

About me

I’ve told you my name. And you already know that I’m from Norway. I’m 43 years old, I have a wife and three kids. I used to play basketball, now I’m mostly running to stay fit. I’m also a vegetarian.

I am usually the only writer at slymarketing. It could be that I add a guest post now and then, but usually it’s all me. I spend as much time as possible with my family, but I also spend about 8 hours a day at work.

The newsletter

I am writing a newsletter for my most dedicated readers. The newsletter is all about the most important marketing tips, and I usually publish it every Sunday. It’s completely free and packed with marketing tips that works. Click here to subscribe.
