Puppies & Babbies
What do puppies and babies have to do with my marketing strategy?? When it comes to marketing everyone tries to come up with something memorable. The object is to put a smile on your audiences face. Make people happy. Mostly this is done with humor. Like the “Where’s the beef” lady from the early eighties. Here it is thirty years later and people still remember that slogan and commercial. It was simple but effective. There is also the tried and true puppies and babies! Who doesn’t smile when they see a puppy or a baby!??!?! The pure innocence of both brings us back to a time in our youth. A simpler and happier time.
Everyone likes monkeys too. But sometimes advertisers can go too far. Who remembers the Superbowl commercial from around three years ago with the “Puppymonkeybaby”? It was rather disturbing. A creature divided into three different animals. You guessed it.. A monkey, baby, and a puppy. I still shiver when I think of it.
