Wed, Aug 28, 2013 — (WARNING: Marketing is Not Advertising – this post is simply on the topic of advertising – see last section below) We’ve all seen billboards on a highway that say, “Does Advertising Work? Just Did!” Are we supposed to believe that since we’ve read these words, their ads are effective? I suppose it depends on their objective. But if it’s such an effective medium, why are they using their ad space to promote…well, their ad space? Why aren’t more advertisers lined up to get their messages out along the highways?
