Tom Burrell: A "Positive" Impact During Black Music Month
The old philosophical riddle speaks to the challenge many musical artists face today: If they produce positive music and most people ignore it, will it still have an impact? The answer doesn't have to be "No." In honor of Black Music Month, we have officially launched "Positive Push," a social media campaign aimed at promoting positive music, images and culture. The first video selected for this campaign is the new single, "Tightrope," by singer Janelle Monáe . We chose this young artist because her album addresses mental and spiritual restrictions, while the single for the video pays homage to ... market research, surveys and trends

Research - Adrants
Even though we often rail against studies that simply restate the obvious, it's nice to see a study that confirms what we've known for years. Contrary to life as a porn star, in the world of media buying, size does not matter according to a recent study of negotiated media rates. A two year analysis of media spending by Billets media audit arm MMPA found prices paid for the same media vary widely and big agency bulk buying clout did not guarantee a lower rate. Our own personal confirmation of this came several years ago when an idiot sales rep mistakenly emailed us his entire inventory sheet for the past six month ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
AAF Wants to Put Public Face on Advertising Industry
ORLANDO ( -- The American Advertising Federation wants to be the public face of advertising and among its initiatives to accomplish this goal is exploring a reality TV show to showcase young ad people. James Datri, president of AAF, believes advertising suffers because it doesn't have a public face (unlike doctors or lawyers) and if the industry doesn't present such a face others will "fill in for us." And whether it's consumer decisions or public policy and regulation, it's a lot easier to legislate against the industry without a public persona, Mr. Datri said. Mr. Datri is presenting his ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What skills are needed for copywriting?
Unfortunately this aggravating obstacle keeps getting in the way of our first million. Or perhaps in your case your second. But with so many people selling almost identical products, it's often difficult to tell the difference. So how do you persuade your prospect to buy yours, and not one of the dozens of others so readily available? Obviously you have to stand out from the crowd. If you're competing in a crowded marketplace you must at least appear different. How? You have to isolate your product's Unique Selling Point and THRUST IT at your prospect. If you don't, you're dead in the water. ----- ...
Why do people say blond hair is white standard of beauty? - Yahoo ...
"People" don't say it...they basically parrot what the advertising industry bolstered by Hollywood, the fashion industry and Playboy Magazine tells us...and many have internalized this after more than 50 years of hearing and seeing it in the popular media. Women in particular have internalized this so much that you even have ethnic groups who do not have naturally blond hair who color their hair blond, and MOST women color their hair blonde for one reason only whether they want to admit it or be considered more appealing to the opposite sex who love to go on about how beautiful blondes are infinitum ad nauseum!
