This one’s a kinda of weird “Marketing Gold” but I thought it was interesting non-the-less. I was browsing through BuzzFeed when an article came up called “One Of The Biggest Con Jobs In Advertising History, Part 2” It involves advertisements for Sugar in the 60’s and 70’s, some of which are just amazing that people believed.

I was listening once to a Jeffrey Hedquist teleseminar. I really like Hedquist because he’s a bit honest when it comes to advertising.

He primarily focus’ on radio but I don’t see a reason why it shouldn’t apply any type of advertising.
