So, we’re discussing crazy publicity stunts in my Step Into The Spotlight! group on LinkedIn (join us) and one of our members, Dennis Brown, shared a bizarre one, not one that he launched but rather one that he experienced first hand as part of the marketer’s target audience–i.e. he got a package of chocolate grasshoppers […]
