Social Media Training, marketing fails and new podcasts released!
Marketing Fail of the week
found by our own Steve Blom
This one is wrong on so many levels. It does, however, gives you an idea on why historically speaking advertising not trusted! I suspect the drug commercials and ads of today will be seen in the future in the same sort of light. Don't these advertisers think we notice them talking about the side effects like death, sexual dysfunction and suicidal thoughts despite the pictures of rolling hills and soothing music in the background?
