Does advertising work anymore?

I, and likely most of you reading, consider myself jaded towards advertising. But I've been wondering, have marketers effectively come up with ways to influence people like me who routinely ignore ads? [more inside]

Who else did Jagermeister use for this series?

Is there a site which has the full series of these Jagermeister ads which I would date (given they feature Klaus Nomi) as late 70s/early 80s? They appear to be from the US, but perhaps they're on a German-language site.

What's a good Wordpress Advertising plugin that is lite on coding?

I am looking to monetize my WP self-hosted site with custom banner/sidebar ads. (Not google ads) Ideally it would work out to be one of a dozen or so ads that appear randomly on every page/post refresh. I'd like something with little to no coding involved. What are the best plugins?

How ad-free can a popular YouTube video be?

I hear that creators of very popular YouTube videos get paid for advertising. Normally they would welcome this, but I'm curious about what options a person has for keeping ads off their YouTube video, especially in the case where the video has been viewed very many times. Is it possible to keep ads off such a video altogether? And what would an effort to minimize advertising do to a video creator's ability to earn money (from YouTube) by posting videos on YouTube? (I imagine it would destroy it, but I don't know for sure.)

Edgy mission statements from Gen-X-targeting 90's ad agencies?

I'm looking for mission statements from 90's advertising agencies. Specifically, super "edgy" ad agencies that targeted the Gen-X demographic. The more over the top and "extreme" the better. Worst-case scenario, I'd love to know where to start looking for them myself.

Do they really want to advertise on my blog?

I received an email the other day from someone who claims they have a client who wants to advertise on my blog, which I only started a couple of months ago. I can't tell if it's legit, and I'm wondering how best to find out. I don't have any advertising on my blog, nor do I have any mentions of seeking advertisers. [more inside]

How to Suceed with Adbrite?

I recently put Adbrite on my blog. But no advertisers have signed up in one month. I reduced the price every week for a text ad from $30 to $10 per week now for a good location in the sidebar. For 2000+ pageviews per day, is it too much to ask for? Many sites with lesser page views and higher rates are full of Adrite advertisers. What is the secret of making money with Adbrite?

Capitalizing on a spike of traffic?

If I suddenly posted something on my website that I knew would get a ton of traffic, what would be the best way to, literally, capitalize on that traffic? If lightning struck, who would I call/partner with to make sure I got the maximum $$ possible out of all those eyeballs? Assume "selling out to the Man" would not be a concern, and further assume I would have very little time to arrange whatever the answer is. Also, assume the new higher traffic would be short-lived, a few weeks at most.

Why do some drug advertisments not include the function of the drug whils others do?

In the U.S., some televised prescription drug ads tell you exactly what the drug is for. Others only allude cryptically to the drug's function. Still others just show a middle-aged, sweater-clad couple enjoying a sunset on a beach. Or Mike Ditka. Why?

Is the "Garden Gnome" a guerrilla marketing campaign?

Faux homemade posters asking "Where is my Garden Gnome" (with the URL of this site) have been popping all over my neighborhood in nyc. On the poster (visible here, pdf) is a toll free number with a funny "homespun" message. This definitely has the feel of some guerrilla marketing campaign. (Who would pay for all those toll free calls...) Or is it some new hoax art project? An (inefficient) email harvester (see the disclaimer on the contact page...)? What? Anyone have any idea? (btw: there was an Oct 28th MeFi FPP about gnomes, but the FPP link is dead... was this related?)
