I have been caught off guard by some strange marketing ploys.
Here is a few of the tackiest.
* "Hi, I am from the blog hop. I hope you will join me back."*
Clearly, you have no interest in reading what I wrote. While I commend your dedication to
marketing your own blog, it is still a little tacky to cut and paste this comment on several blogs.
*While the family mourns the death of the younger brother, Mom pulls out Hershey syrup to make the older brother feel better.*
This happened on an episode of General Hospital (do not judge me). It was a really sad moment and they did a product placement for Hershey's in the middle of it. They must have mentioned the brand name at least three times. Double tacky!!
*"If she can't remember your name, remember ours."
This was on a billboard for an Alzheimer's treatment center in our area.
And finally, I just received this postcard in the mail...
This is the front.
This is the back.
It is from an insurance agency. This is the kind of mailing they send out 2 days before Christmas and in the middle of Hanukkah.
Tackiest of all!
Tell me when a tacky one catches your eye!
