He’ll tell the story of brands that swam against the prevailing current, including some who used their ads to h…
 
It’s a popular myth among some consumers that advertisers hold some mysterious, hypnotic sway over them: manipulating their beliefs and spending decisions. Many advertisers, on the other hand, believe the power lies entirely with consumers, who can hobble the mightiest of brands with a rumour, or a single, viral video. This week, Terry O’Reilly fol…
 
Just as there are oddballs in sports, the arts, and certainly in politics- there is no shortage of oddball campaigns in advertising. This week, Terry explains why oddball campaigns are so important to his trade. Not all rank among the all-time greats; not all scoop major awards. What they do was change the way people think about ads. Terry will tel…
 
Suppose you’re a marketer trying to sell a product with few or no discernible differences from rival brands. In advertising, that’s where the rubber hits the road.

When is an airline not an airline? Or a bottle of pop more than a packaged good on a shelf? When it’s an experience.

And he traces “modern” retail experiences (Starbucks, for instance- where attitude, atmospher…

This week, Terry O’Reilly explains why “lowest common denominato…

The word slogan- (which by the way, is a word ad people never, ever use) derives from the Gaelic “slaugh gairn”, meaning “cry of the host,” or “battle cry.” Slogans were once an advertising staple- the brief, pithy line that embodies a brand and its promise- from “A Little Dab’ll Do Ya” to “Trust your Car to the Man Who Wears the Star,” to- dare we…

Bulletin… bulletin… bulletin… this just in… the actor who played “Mikey” in the Life Cereal Ads did not die as result of consuming pop rocks and cola (or from any other cause).

He’ll explain how …
