Funny Marketing Screw Ups: A precursor to my next post…

I was in the midst of writing my next blog on the importance of developing a Marketing Plan BEFORE jumping into the world of Social Media, when into my inbox popped this old gem from Bob Smith (a consultant @ The Allasso Group & long-time colleague).

Bob sent me ”Great Marketing Screw Ups”, a list of 10 colossal, mind-bending, classic marketing flubs.  It was originally published in 1997 by J.K. Davis, for which he/she claims a copyright.  (BTW, imagine someone getting a copyright on your screw-ups? How weird would that be? Mine would require a bit more space to enumerate…)

So.  All credit for the following laughs go to J.K., wherever he/she may be.  Enjoy!

BTW, the working title for my next entry to The SBE Lifer is “Develop a Marketing Plan Before Blogging, Tweeting, Facebook-Fan-Paging, Google’ing, eMailing, Webinaring, LinkedInning, Podcasting, YouTubing, Webcasting & Shouting From The Rooftop.”  It should get posted by the middle of next week.
