Would you handle a PR crisis as well as KFC did? »

So, KFC, formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken, sells chicken. But you can’t fry what you don’t have. Sounds far fetched, I know, but KFC ran out of chicken. Customers? Not happy. What’s a Colonel to do? So, they took their initials, KFC, rearranged the order and put out this provocative ad. Along with an apology. Did […]

Can Marketing Heal the World? »

In asking this question, I’m reminded of the old Coca Cola commercial with people from every ethnicity singing on a hilltop, “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.” Wonder if that brought harmony.

We should remember & incorporate some of this as entrepreneurs. Nothing like admitting a vulnerability to win the trust […]

It appears to be directly taking on Trump’s recent […]
