How not to promote your business

There are a bunch of ways of not helping your business, or actually doing long lasting damage. For starters you shouldn't be inconsiderate, but if you made a judgment error and are being called out for it, being defensive is not a good idea. Sarah Duncan from SD Knitwear in Bath, UK parked very inconsiderate and then turned completely aggressive and a bit nutty against a guy who documented the poor parking choice.

Simple does it

Good marketing doesn't always have to be super elaborate and like with many other things in life "simple" often does it. The 39th annual American Birkebeiner event is taking place in Cable, Wisconsin this weekend, and friends who are participating in this marathon skiing race noticed this very cool Leinenkugel promotional setup. Without being prompted, hey sat in the big chair, took pics, shared them on twitter and had fun - simple and effective.

Flash mobs are dead

Flash mobs are dead, or maybe better said "done with." But hey there is always time for a stampede and Calgary is not alone with that phenomenon.

WHY

A stunning video called WHY by Corey Rich makes you really believe that a Nikon D4 in your hands will allow you to turn into a superb videographer / photographer. Wake up, that is not the case. but the camera is very cool. But for now enjoy this beautiful film.



Beautiful and scary actually.

Luke, I am your father

Is this a clever Star Wars guerrilla marketing effort or simple Star Wars weenie art fun? What ever it actually was meant to be, it is entertaining for sure.

Valentine's Day love

It is difficult not to be smitten by this very beautiful spot from Field Notes. Red Blooded is a new color they are offering and the spot below should inspire folks to do more than just buying chocolates or flowers for Valentine's Day. So get on it and be creative!



But you don't have to go all out.

Old Milwaukeee Super Bowl ad

This is another Super Bowl ad that you most likely have missed. Old Milwaukee ran this spot with comedian Will Ferrell only in North Platte, Nebraska on the NBC affiliate there. Yet this spot has been very popular on Twitter and Facebook, and this somewhat odd youtube spot captured by youtube user Daddymcc is approaching 1,000,000 views. Not bad for a spot that may have cost Old Milwaukee $1,000 to $2,000 to place and pretty much nothing to make. Now though it is time for them to get a few more fans on Facebook, surely more than 4797 folks like that beer.

The 2012 Apple iPhone Super Bowl ad

Not many folks may have noticed this ad for the Apple iPhone during the 2012 Super Bowl. Well technically speaking it isn't really an ad because Apple didn't pay a dime, and it didn't air during a commercial break. But look closely how many of the New York Giants players pull out their iPhone when the Vince Lombardi trophy comes by. Very, very impressive and truly a big suck it to Samsung.

Beautiful Joy Ride

Well, the joy ride in this film is quite exciting but the film itself, shot on the new Nikon D800, is absolutely beautiful. Director Sandro and his crew did a fantastic job here and the D800 held its own.

OK Go does it again

Another very clever spot from OK Go is making the rounds right now, but this one is actually clever guerrilla marketing for the Sonic from Chevrolet. At almost 2,000,000 views right now, we would expect that number to grow tenfold at least. This Too Shall Pass from about 2 years back is at over 33,000,000 as we speak. Nice work

Axe Anarchy

Who would have thought that Axe could throw the world into anarchy? Now that there is AXE Anarchy for men and women that scenario seems likely. So please stay clear of flower pots, scooters and wheel chairs, and for god's sake, please wear a nose clip.
