Learn Marketing from Ads All Around You
Advertising gets a lot of blame. In fact, most people trust a used car salesman over an advertising account manager. The reason is that there are so many bad ads. I can’t fault agencies entirely for letting these ads out there. Sometimes, the client insists. Sometimes the client doesn’t use an agency. And sometimes the ads are just in poor taste. But you can still learn marketing by paying closing attention to bad ads, as this blog post by SGRuby shows.
Ugly Ads UGH. Bad promotion is everywhere. Television. Radio. Magazines. E-mail. Snail mail. You name it…it’s everywhere. And it stands out and it sucks. Now on the other side of the equation…good promotion is everywhere as well.
