Marketing in Reverse

Ever wondered what was the business condition, the current state of turnover that lead to the advertisements you get bombarded by?

Here's a fun take on marketing... in reverse.


SALE



option 1: I got a big stock I need to get rid off
option 2: It is the end of season, I need to get rid of the old to bring the new
option 3: I haven't reached my sales target

5 to 25% - I still intend to make profit by selling more for less
30 to 50% -  I just need to get rid of these items, I will sell at cost
50% and up - I don't care if I lose, stocking them would cost me more

Loyalty Cards



option 1: I need to get my customers to come back again
option 2: I need to get more customers
option 3: I need to get my customers to buy more

Incentive Ads



do this for a chance to win - for example: update your information for a chance to win an iPad (just saw that at Bank Audi): 
we need to get more people to do this i.e. not enough people are doing this



OUTDOOR  Ads


bulky / long text: the boss is old fashioned and refused to listen to the pro
many pictures: the boss is old fashioned and refused to listen to the pro

text is too small: the graphic designer has no experience
logo is too small: the graphic designer has no experience


Print Ads

Social media icons with no links: we have no clue what those are for, but we are trying to be cool
Advertising with no address or contact details: the marketing department is not being held accountable for sales


TV Ads

Jingles: we hope it get stuck in your head, even if you hate us for this, there's no such thing as bad advertising
Testimonials: we think you're dumb enough to think those are true (sadly, this has proven to work efficiently)

Online Ads

"Click here": I think you are dumb



"FREE":This is a trick

win lebanon
"WIN": we want to get something out of this
