Comment on Online vs. Print Advertising, Why Print is Losing by Gary Stockert http://smcpros.com/2013/05/online-vs-print-advertising-why-print-is-losing/#comment-702 Mon, 29 Jul 2013 19:39:00 +0000 http://smcpros.com/?p=4948#comment-702 This blog comes from a bit of a bias to begin with and does not touch on core marketing principles such as the power of differentiation, but it is fair to assume that all ad creative, media and mediums are not created equally. So anytime anyone tries to make a blog article that is somewhat general it seems like an over-assumption. I believe the reality is any media bought well can work. But I agree with an “emphatic YES” that most traditional media cannot even come close to the insight that can be received from an online campaign, regardless if that info is positive or negative. Speaking personally as I worked in TV for 7 years I’d rather have hard client specific data than Nielsen ratings or Scarborough to pitch.

GM has cancelled every single type of media they have ever bought within their history of existing at one point or another. Kind of like being an agency, every one eventually gets fired, no matter how good.

In a world where clients are constantly begging for the most efficient type of advertising available, selling someone on the “emotion” of any particular media is getting tougher and tougher. Not to mention that the Shamwow guy ruined TV advertising forever…

Comment on Social Media is Bullshit | A Review by B.J. Mendelson http://smcpros.com/2013/04/social-media-is-bullshit-a-review/#comment-654 Thu, 04 Jul 2013 22:01:00 +0000 http://smcpros.com/?p=4828#comment-654 Gabe and I have chatted about this via LinkedIN, but I thought it was worth pointing out here that A Million High Fives was renamed The High Five Tour. The High Five Tour was based on the breast cancer tour (which the butthurt individual who wrote this post dismissed). The High Five Tour went on to become a multimillion dollar national success story. You can learn more about the tour at http://www.highfivetour.com

So, as discussed with Gabe, not accurate to call the High Five Tour / A Million High Fives a failure. I am sure many of the men and women in our armed services who have met the Colonel would be very disappointed to hear that and certainly wouldn’t agree. Especially as the tour enters its fourth year of operation.

By the way: The reason The High Five Tour / A Million High Fives was a success and the breast cancer tour wasn’t? It was the focus on social media marketing tactics, such as the ones sold by the business that this blog post belongs to.

Can’t imagine why they would trash the book, can you? 😉

Someone who sells social media marketing services for a living didn’t like a book called Social Media Is Bullshit.
