Ideas: 1st Attempt at Unconventional Marketing
No doubt, a $20 bill lying about is an attention grabber and a way to get your prospect to read your advertising. The question is – will s/he associate their sense of disappointment at it NOT being a $20 bill with your business? Fortunately, much of the negative feelings are diffused by the first line of the ad, which admits culpability and then offers to “make up for it with $20 off.”
Clever and smart! This could certainly work in marketing to local businesses, as well as on peel away ads on websites.

Idea: There’s a Marketing Lesson Here (Somewhere)
You’ll remember that in 2008 an Iraqi journalist threw his shoe at then President George W. Bush. Slapping your shoe against someone is one of the biggest insults you can offer in the Arab world, although it’s doubtful President Bush knew this. What is known is that since the incident, sales of this particular shoe (now dubbed the “Bye-Bye Bush” shoe) have increased 4-fold and the shoe company has hired 100 new employees just to keep up with demand.
Marketing lesson learned? No, it’s not to throw things at heads of state. But if there is an innovative way you can either get your product in the news, or use it to make a stand on a newsworthy issue, you might want to let it fly and see what happens.
