ExpoNation asked us to boost the number of registrations for this year’s Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas. So far, we’ve increased registrations and revenue to a record high, and the registrations are still coming in – so this will be the most successful event in DSE’s ten-year history. The campaign went beyond the immediate benefit of seeing new technology firsthand, although we certainly touted that, too. (more…)

With the stage now set to reduce the restrictions on how privately traded securities can be marketed, there’s a very real concern that unsophisticated investors can be mislead by advertising for risky or even fraudulent investments.
Concerned opponents of the change conjure up images of billboards, TV ads and telemarketing calls touting high-risk investment opportunities to the unsuspecting masses. Yes, dishonest and unethical marketing happens, and sometimes it even works. Neither is unique to financial services. (more…)
Are you a student of advertising? Do you absolutely love it? Are you soaking up all the cases, reading all the sites? Are you doing this so much that you leave little time and focus for your own work?

Grove developed a set of biases that propelled him to the top of the digital world. Where did he get them? Nazi Germany (more…)
Let’s start with the current norm. Those of us who are doing this because we think thought leadership or content management is a good thing to be doing. We think we’re helping people make a product decision. Or we think we’re simply building the reputation of our company. And perhaps we also think we’re creating inexpensive ways to expand the potential for prospective customers to engage with us, and then perhaps be converted to customers down the line.

Why do some people almost always get better advertising?

“Now hold on,” you may be thinking, “I’ve heard this before.” But stick with me, and I’ll share some hard-earned knowledge that changed my creative output and, yes, my life. Seriously. (more…)
Many people made small fortunes in the direct-to-consumer computer boom of the nineties and early 21′s century. Unfortunately for many of those people, the small fortunes were made out of much larger fortunes. (more…)
Nothing speeds things up by solving multiple problems at once like a BIG idea. Here’s how to get more of them.
