Still not using HUMOR in your marketing? »

Love this T-Mobile commercial!!! Humor can make a point WAY better than teaching and preaching. How can you do this in YOUR business?

Are YOU as brutally honest with prospects as this Girl Scout selling cookies? »

Check out this hilarious video of Mike Rowe reading a letter from a Girl Scout to her dad’s rich friend trying to pitch him on buying girl scout cookies. There’s nothing like the sincerity of kids.

Brilliant, no? Have you seen […]

It’s a variation of the Avis, #2, We Try Harder campaign from years ago that’s […]
