Traditional marketing says blanket your market with repetitious ads for the new people who haven't seen it. I have a project I want to promote and attract attention to. Although I won't send out a tweet or a post every minute, should I make repetitious posts on Social Media too? Is there a good balance?

Does reverse product placement exist? By that I mean, placing a competitor's product in an uncool enviornment in order to discourage sales.

The Geico Caveman TV commercial.
Is it racist or just brilliant?

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?

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?)
