When False Advertising Gets Caught Out.

This shows the power of the internet and how brands have to take care when claiming things about their products this company’s pool imagery obviously was a little misleading – however these people got their kids to voice their disappointment in the product.

Advertising is not Dead! – Good Copy and the WEB Work

This is a video for the Wicked Sick Project – which was set up by the creative team at George Patterson Y&R

The aim of the project?

“Does creativity make a difference? ”

These guys bought a bmx on ebay and relisted it with some creativity and it sold for 500% more than the purchase price.

Just goes to show that the right sort of copy does work!

Oh and its’s also good to see how the web can accelerate a products popularity with the right content 😉

Just spotted these and although Christmas is still quite a way off thought they would make an unusual present, they seem to be exclusive to this online store in the US but maybe available elsewhere – maybe the next Cabbage Patch Kids 😉

Ernie – The Fastest Organic Milkman In The West Returns…

milkman

Not quite Benny Hill but Ernie The Fastest Organic Milkman In The West makes a return  as all that’s old seems to be the new-new!

Delivering organic milk to customers’ doors in glass milk bottles, is coming back as the Manhattan Milk Company is reviving old-fashioned dairy delivery.

For a $5 delivery charge, Manhattanites can get a weekly delivery of fresh milk. The company’s driver loads up his truck on Wednesdays at 4 am and delivers to all of Manhattan, picking up empty bottles when he drops off the full ones. The milk is sourced from 51 Amish farms in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, about 160 miles southwest of New York City.

Maybe we will see this regeneration grow combining dairy delivery with locally supported agriculture ventures that deliver organic fruit and veg from farms to households across the world – with eco delivery systems?

Think about it convenience, charm, organic and local all combined with green credentials!!

eCommerce Drives Home Shopping…

ecommerce_360.jpg

According to research by marketing inteligence company Key Note eCommerce will be the key factor driving the growth of the home shopping market, which will account for around one third of all retail sales in the UK by 2012.
It claims that home shopping market will expand at a rapid, albeit decelerating pace over the next five years. The research also predicts that the general mail-order sector will completely converge with internet sales by 2012, while direct sales are likely to begin to decline.

The total market for UK home shopping was valued at an estimated £58bn in 2006, more than double the £28bn spent in 2003. Figures reveal that while the e-commerce sector has exploded, the general mail-order sector has experienced a sharp decline.

Key Note claims that rising broadband penetration in the UK will only drive market growth further, and that the need to invest heavily in e-commerce means that the largest retailers will come to dominate the e-commerce sector.

Key Note finds that the general mail-order sector is increasingly overlapping with the e-commerce sector, while direct selling and direct marketing are also coming under competitive pressure from the growth of internet sales.

17 Year Old! Launches Social Shopping Site…

rasba.gif

Rasba is a social e-commerce platform created by a 17 year old, that connects sellers of the hottest brands and trends with young and hip buyers. Brands can create a simple, fast, and customizable store within the website while users can discover and buy awesome new products/brands. What makes Rasba special is the awesome social networking and affiliate program that buyers and sellers can take advantage of.

Miriam Brafman, the young founder of Rasba, didn’t have any programming knowledge when she came up with the idea for it. So she sought out developers through LinkedIn and other means. She now has a full-time Yahoo employee working on the site for her. She spends most of her time these days traveling to meet with retailers who might want to set up shop on Rasba.

Whenever a user buys a product from a Rasba store, it goes to a public profile page where the user displays each product he/she has bought (see http://www.rasba.com/profile/20) and each time a user sells a product displayed through their profile, they get a commission, which varies from each product.
