Watch a Coke (spot) and smile!

We all know the Super Bowl is just as much about commercials as it is the game. And last night's parade of marketing efforts had some hits (Tide "Talking Spot") and some misses (SalesGenie....AGAIN!). But rarely does the big game...Read more

Southwest Airlines shows what a "brand" really is.

I flew Southwest Airlines from Raleigh to Los Angeles this week. It's been a while since I flew the LUV airline. I've always admired them because of the way they understand what a brand is.

Super Bowl advertising starts with PR.

Remember when we actually had to watch the Super Bowl to see all the creative quirky new ads...like the Budweiser Frogs , the McDonald's "Showdown" spot between Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, the cowboys herding cats , and going way...Read more

Marketing actually makes cheap wine taste better.

Whopper freakout campaign brilliant.

I saw the Whopper Freakout TV commercial for the first time last night with my teenage sons and it had us all in stitches. Talk about break-through. Imagine Candid Camera at Burger King. It starts with an ultra serious announcer..."We...Read more

A marketing story that bears repeating.

I was listening to NPR on my way home last night. The story started with a statistic that grabbed my attention. Fully 66% of Americans are considered overweight. Humm, interesting. The market for big and tall men’s clothing...Read more

Finding our NC office now a bit easier.

We bought a great new building here in Cary, NC (between Raleigh and Durham) back in June of 2007. Apparently the prior owners felt no need to tell people where they were, so there was no signage. Do you have...Read more

I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance…
