Why Don’t Advertising Agencies Advertise?
post # 76 — May 14, 2006 — a Client Relations post
There is an absolutely marvelous blog and discussion about why advertising agencies don’t advertise here.
The argument (and the discussion) could be extended.
Why don’t the branding agencies have branding campaigns?
Which PR firm trying to break into the blogging / social media services marketplace got a lot of bad publicity because it didn’t have a blog of its own, yet held itself out as ready to advise others?
We have already discussed paradoxes like these on this blog under the title of The Shoemakers’ Children.
Great links, especially to your prescient Shoemaker’s Children post. It just goes to show how few people are selling a product they are truly passionate about! It’s one thing to turn up your nose at “eating your own dogfood”, but the truly inspired “drink their own champagne It’s iportant to notice the difference.
