Marketing Gold – Zappos New Product!

By |2017-08-12T07:09:52+00:00November 26th, 2013|Advertising Gold, Business|Comments Off on Marketing Gold – Zappos New Product!

For a limited time Zappos.com has a item for sale on their website.  It's called the "Sh*t Product" and it's available to you for the low, low price of $100,000!   I suppose this deserves a little bit of explanation.  It all started when the always-amusing Kanye West was a guest on Bret Easton Ellis' Podcast and shared a story about a 'discussion' he had with Tony Hsieh (Entrepreneur and CEO of Zappos): I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all [...]

Marketing Gold (Kinda): Sugar!

By |2017-08-12T06:56:54+00:00September 23rd, 2013|Advertising Gold, Business|Comments Off on Marketing Gold (Kinda): Sugar!

This one's a kinda of weird "Marketing Gold" but I thought it was interesting non-the-less.  I was browsing through BuzzFeed when an article came up called "One Of The Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History, Part 2"  It involves advertisements for Sugar in the 60's and 70's, some of which are just amazing that people believed.  I've included some of my 'favorite' ads below, but be sure to check out Buzzfeed for all 12 of them:     You can check out "One Of The Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History, Part 1" which tackles "Lysol" when it was a feminine [...]

Marketing Gold: Bodyform Apologies For “False Advertising”

By |2017-08-12T06:35:10+00:00June 24th, 2013|Advertising Gold|Comments Off on Marketing Gold: Bodyform Apologies For “False Advertising”

This is a case of social media going right!  As Adweek puts it, "Brands often freeze up when they're criticized on Facebook."  I even talked (or at least reposted) about "The Unhappy Customer" as one of the 7-types of social media users (for business), and how "45% of consumers are more likely to share negative experiences on social media." This is a little tongue-in-cheek, but on October 8, 2013 a certain Richard Neill posted a rant on Bodyform's Facebook Page about Bodyform lying over the years about their products and the way they are portrayed in their commercials.  Here's [...]

Advertising Gold: Kmart – Ship My Pants

By |2017-08-12T06:08:46+00:00April 15th, 2013|Advertising Gold, Business|Comments Off on Advertising Gold: Kmart – Ship My Pants

I'm working on another 'real' article, but I just had to share this commercial.  It comes from Kmart and it is titled "Ship My Pants."  It's a great example of getting your attention and no part of this commercial seems overly redundant.  I think it's cast perfectly, written perfectly and there's two versions included in the video.   Check out the video below and laugh a little...it's Monday.  A huge thanks to Pallante Photography for shooting this commercial my way. People are often scared to take risks in their advertising.  I can't tell you how many times I've presented something only vagues risque and have gotten it shot down.  I'd [...]
