Buzzwords that make you cringe

List of Buzzwords I Hate

There are many buzzwords and phrases that are simply overused in business and marketing. They make me cringe every time I hear or see them.

People tend to parrot others and then these words and terms become <cringe> keywords that are used over and over and over. Used so much that they make you sick!

The simple solution would be to pull out a Thesaurus to find another way to say something, but then it wouldn’t be a popular search term and Google wouldn’t have a Keyword Planner.
