Marketing & Advertising – Stop the Cartoon Madness

I am listing here everything I believe to be valuable & beneficial in this new cartoon advertising craze on television (stolen from the idea of humanizing a softer sales approach on the internet):

Benn Rosales is the Founder and CEO of The American Genius (AG), national news network. Before AG, he founded one of the first digital media strategy firms in the nation has received the Statesman Texas Social Media Award and is an Inman Innovator Award winner. He has consulted for numerous startups (both early- and late-stage), and is well known for organizing the digital community through popular offline events. He does not venture into the spotlight often, rather he believes his biggest accomplishments are the talent he recruits and develops, so he gives all credit to those he's empowered.

    Wait, isn’t that what we were going for?

    I actually had to ponder that for a minute before it clicked – now I have the song stuck in my head. Thanks for that.

    I try …

    I’ve started a trend. I blog on a mega-blog wondering about mega-blogs and then you utter about the lack of utter usefulness.

    oh, and for the record, I’ve been writing about not throwing the baby out with the bath water for a long time… 2.0 mixed with marketing that already works is the way forward imho, not all in on 2.0. Maybe in 10 yrs you’ll be ahead of the game, but for right now, you just do not exist.
