Bugaboo to Moms: The Ad is Fine, Stop It
July 31st, 2015 by Dwayne W. Waite Jr.
We're paraphrasing, of course. Bugaboo, a brand that makes high-end buggies (baby strollers) has been facing some backlash from the last ad they posted. The ad featured 23-year-old model Ymre Stiekema walking her baby in one of Bugaboo's $800 stroller. The young model happened to be in a bikini (or a running outfit that looks like a bikini; we've seen plenty of those, too).

With the age of digital marketing, marketing analytics, CRM, social media, and “inbound marketing,” there is no excuse to settle for finding a firm that collects leads and pay them for numbers, emails, and contacts of “influential” people. Thankfully, when marketers understand their market, the age of the cold call is over. Long live the warm and hot calls.
Will Hulk Hogan Hurt WWE’s Brand Image?
July 27th, 2015 by Dwayne W. Waite Jr.
The fallout from the leaked audio of Hulk Hogan’s “pillow talk” with his mistress is absolutely incredible. From being almost Mr. WWE to even existing in record books, stores, or even Vince MacMahon’s diary is a feat that, to our knowledge, has never been done. Even the late and ill-fated Benoit gets mentioned from time to time. This Hero to Zero story could have some interesting advertising implications...
Traversing the Consumer's Attention Span in a Social Wasteland
July 27th, 2015 by Cameron Kirkwood
I’m sure any of my coworkers can attest to the fact that my favorite phrase of late has been that “Social Media has propelled society 20 years past its time”; increasingly so, the younger you go generation to generation. In fact, it’s advanced at a rate that the average consumer’s attention span can only read at a range of four sentences per paragraph without being utterly discouraged, ignoring the piece all together. Some may call this sad. I just call it the power of a completely connected world. With this overbearing change, the industry has been forced to succumb. Social medias such as Twitter and Instagram latched on to the concept early. Each new medium is progressively becoming shorter, sharper. Character restrictions, focus on imagery, bigger type...
