    Great Marketing Methods

    there are some marketing strategies that just stand out and seem to be huge hits. the two that come to mind are the budweiser frogs and the new coors light using nfl coach press conference quotes. i think it is just coinsidence that these 2 are both beer commercials, but maybe they just pay the most for the best (most creative) marketing people.

    what are some other, maybe older, marketing methods that just seemed to be a huge hit?

    Re: Great Marketing Methods

    I don't think it's a coincidence that both your examples are beer commercials. Beer as a product carries the marketability and characteristics that appeals to humor perfectly.

    How about the Real Men of Genius series? Or check out some Labatts or Molson or Hahns ads. Beer companies have established humor as their vehicle for marketing, so they are bound to have some memorable campaigns.

    Old Milwaukee - Swedish Bikini Team
    Budweiser - Spuds Mackenzie
    ISU - Walden & Orr. Perhaps the best marketing done by ISU. I wish I could find those posters!!

    Re: Great Marketing Methods

    Sony's recent ad with the panel of "experts" is a pretty good commercial. Including the San Diego Chicken was a good choice.

    The message is pretty good too.

    Nothing beats Sportcenter Ads.

    The new Bud Light "........... is no longer offered" commercials are pretty good.
