While perusing the Sunday Denver Post, I came across a surprising ad. eBay has a hardcopy ad with a coupon offering 10% off…something I’ve never seen them do. It’d be interesting to know how many new registrations and additional sales the hardcopy version will spawn.
And speaking of unconventional marketing (but FAR more interesting and humorous), I finally had time to check out Sun’s hilarious Sun Fire x4100 ad…it reads much like a match.com bio. My favorite lines:
“I LOVE: Naughty ROI talk, multiple platforms, dimly lit data centers.”
“AMBITIONS: I’d like to eliminate boundaries and create a better world where everyone can truely collaborate. Oh, and swim with dolphins.”
Hee. Hee. Hee. Kudos to our marketing peeps…can’t wait to see the next ones!
