New York City Ad Vandalism

Here's a New York City 7-11 advert that's been vandalized for a political message. Perhaps an anti-political message? Leave a comment and let me know what you guys think the vandals were trying to get across to the general public. Unfortunately I have to work most of the day, make sure you have a great Saturday folks!

Ads in a public school?

Ads in a public school? Schools in Minnesota are voting in November, whether to place ads on 10 percent of the available surfaces in all of the district's seven schools. That includes lockers, walls and floors. I found this on a  Minnesota newspaper, the Star Tribune. The full article can be found here. I'd like to hear what my followers think about it.

On Nov. 1, the school board is slated to decide whether it will allow the ads on up to 10 percent of the available surfaces in all of the district's seven schools. That includes lockers, walls and floors. The take for the district? $184,000 a year.
In a bleak economy, with dim prospects for any new state school funding, Centennial -- with $3.6 million in cuts this year and more likely on the way next year -- is just the latest school district looking at the ads as an alternative way to generate some cash. Paul Miller, president of Coon Rapids-based School Media's, the company that would install the ads, said he expects to have nine Twin Cities school districts signed up by the end of the year.
Nearby St. Francis schools already made that decision. Ads will start going up on lockers there this week, said district Superintendent Edward Saxton. The district's agreement with School Media's is similar to Centennial's proposed agreement. Its take: $190,000 to $200,000 a year.

Popular sayings and phrases in today's most popular ads!

I've been doing some research lately and have noticed MANY reoccurring sayings or phrases in ads, banners, and all sites revolving around marketing.

Lemon Law Ad's

Tonight's post I'm going to talking a little bit about the Auto Lemon Law. Here's a quick explanation about Lemon Law's from Wikipedia:
Lemon laws are American state laws that provide a remedy for purchasers of cars in order to compensate for cars that repeatedly fail to meet standards of quality and performance. These cars are called lemons. The federal lemon law (the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects citizens of all states. State lemon laws vary by state and may not necessarily cover used or leased cars. The rights afforded to consumers by lemon laws may exceed the warranties expressed in purchase contracts. Lemon law is the common nickname for these laws, but each state has different names for the laws and acts. 

For a car to considered a lemon it must meet the following criteria:
    • A new vehicle - no more than a year old and still under warranty - is a "lemon" if
    • It has a serious defect the dealer can't fix in four tries, or 
    • It has one or many defects that prevent you from using it for 30 days or more (the 30 days need not be consecutive)   
  
Here are a few lemon law ads:


Hershey's Candy Halloween Ads

Halloween is fast approaching and with it being just over a month away, I'll be posting more Halloween related ads! Make sure you guys go pick up some Hershey's chocolate sometime soon before it's all gone!

Also just a quick note for anyone who has any questions for me as far as marketing goes. Before you spend any money on your next marketing or advertising effort, do your homework. Well-informed decisions and better planning make for better advertising and marketing decisions. You can estimate your point-of-sales for almost any advertising and marketing tool, contact me if you have any questions! -Addy Plus

Home Equity Loan Ads

Own a home? Need money? Take out a Home Equity Loan today! You're sitting on thousands of potential dollars that could be yours today! Ask your local bank for more information about Home Equity Loans today!

 That's exactly what the creators of these ads were trying to get across, I would say they do a good job, too bad none of them are really unique. Sometimes advertisement companies seem to use and share each others ideas without trying their own methods.

Rubik's Cube Ad

Here's an Advert for Rubik's Cube, I found it quite funny as I've never solved a Rubik's cube myself. This specific ad was released after Rubik's Cube's 25th Anniversary. 


Have any of you ever solved a Rubik's Cube? I know some of you might even have records! Please share!

Life Insurance Loan Ad

This ad really brings up something we all should look into as we get older, life insurance. Without Life Insurance, we're leaving the load onto our families, why not look into a small loan? This ad speaks for itself.


Here's another Life Insurance ad by the same company, really opens your eyes. 


Have any of my followers looking into Life Insurance for you or family members?
