Marketing myth or fact?

There are certain facts about business and marketing that “everyone” knows, but are they true? Not always. “Cyber Monday (or “Black Monday”)” is the largest Internet shopping day of the year. Think “Black Friday” (day after Thanksgiving, traditionally the nuttiest shopping day of the year) and e-tail it. Neilson/NetRatings even predicts and reports on the […]

Spam is not definition of Internet marketing.

I just read an article proclaiming that Internet marketing is dead. The author raved that Internet marketing is filth and garbage and went on to describe the evils of email spam, using the terms “Internet marketing” and “spam” interchangably. IT’S BS LIKE THIS THAT GIVES MARKETING A BAD NAME! Unsolicited bulk email – spam – […]

Every once in a while I run across a comment on a forum or overhear someone say “So-and-so says that is easy to do, so I should never pay anyone to do it” or “Why pay for it when all of the information is out there on the Internet?” Well, there are A LOT of […]

Power of Publicity

Scott Ginsberg is nuts, but he does have a knack for publicity. The guy’s been wearing a nametag for 5 YEARS STRAIGHT, with one problem – the darn thing won’t stick in the pool. So, to celebrate his 5-year-anniversary, Scott had a nametag tattoo permanently affixed to his left pec (Funny how he’ll pose for […]

Attention-Getting Marketing

A Gutter Helmet radio spot this morning got my attention…the company is a frequent advertiser on the station, so I’ve heard their jingle numerous times. In fact, it was so familiar, in my head the *sound* of that jingle had overriddent the words. I’m not sure I could have told you what was being advertised. […]
