Little Extra: What physics taught me about marketing

I love TED talks.

Perhaps I love this talk because I learnt about marketing through art history, but marketing principles apply through the common sense of other practices.

Little Publicity: Anti-Branding?

My friend Sami sent me this article and its absolutely hilarious. Is there such a thing as anti-branding?

According to the article Snooki from Jersey Shore is being sent bags/purses, but instead of the companies themselves sending the bags to her, competitors are sending them. Its as if sending Snooki your bag will lead to a decrease in sales (rather dramatic), but it is true that most companies will want to opt out of a girl that sucks on pickles ,as one of her greatest pleasures in life, as their spokesperson.

Little Publicity: F*ck You

This video contains mature content.

Some may call this an incomplete product, but in all honesty this is genius. A simple slideshow with words and more than a million views. Sometimes we just don’t need the frilly bits.

Becoming an expert in something means we become more and more fascinated by nuance and complexity

Little Publicity: Too Funny?

Is it completely inappropriate to be, do I dare say it, too funny? Chad Levitt in his blog post “The Funniest Linkedin Profile I’ve Ever Read” called this Linkedin Profile inappropriate or in a sense reckless considering what we put on the internet stays on the internet. Things like ““My goal is world domination of the military industrial complex, through control of documents.” and ““Specialties: Exceptionally good with sarcastic, smart ass remarks.”

I know that Chad most likely just wanted to share something funny, but my own personal sarcastic. smart ass remarks kicked in. More often than not people have no idea what they are putting online, but some people use this to their advantage by crafting what they want other people to see. Its like the illusion of TV. We think we know actors just because we can see them but the truth is we don’t. There is a false sense of intimacy. Online profiles are exactly the same. Some people intentionally make their profiles funny because its exactly what they want you to see. Art Flater, owner of the Linkedin profile in question, works for a de-motivational poster company. Understanding this makes his profile completely genius, and absolutely too funny.

Little Publicity: Wall of Shame?

Is it right for police officers to post onto Facebook offenders of DUI, shoplifting, and child pornography?

I don’t believe what these people did was right, but I don’t believe in public humiliation either. The Evesham township police posts up pictures of offenders and includes their full name along with some of their details. Privacy is the obvious issue, but to me the idea of putting someone on a wall of shame isn’t justice, its cruelty. What will also happen when a child who shoplifts for the first time appears on this wall, or when this wall becomes something people want to get on, equivalent to a slut list. What will happen then? What are your own opinions?

Inspiration for this post was from the article “New Jersey Police to Shame Drunk Drivers on Facebook” by Addy Dugdale
