It could be, William, but a lot of hospitals still do advertise. It's just a matter of having a strategy and targeting your marketing accordingly

Was it in this particular post, Joscruise? They seem to be loading fine from here.

Absolutely, Jamie, you can't be afraid to put yourself out there and ask for what you want. The worst that can happen is they say no and you're where you started. The best case is you find that dream job. Good luck out there. Be fearless!

I couldn't tell you if they're still working - this was a year ago and I haven't seen one like it since, even with the record Powerball jackpot last month.

Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like how we blog. Tried to look at your site, but it's in Polish and I don't speak Polish.

Luz: We have seen a whole lot more spam in the last few weeks. I think it's time to call the guys over at "Are You Human" - they have a system that isn't as frustrating for real humans as the unreadable captchas, but keeps the spam bots away.

It's a possibility. We usually only have 1 - 3 images and try and keep the blog short and to the point, but we want to make sure we're giving good information, and that's more important than structure. Good constructive thoughts, though. Thank you.

IFS: This is based on just my one experience, but I got to thinking if I'm doing it, surely there are plenty of other people doing it. Taking a picture of their kid in the parade or their business's float or their high school's band or whatever it is they liked and then posting it. Which means there will be other people in the shot who are now online, unknowingly. I have no idea how many people were taking shots and uploading them - it's just conjecture on my part. Mike

Good one, Chad. Thanks for sharing. Laura - I like it. Is it a personal one or does it represent your company/brand/product?

Actually, I meant to put the Tide one in, it somehow got lost in the shuffle of putting together this post. It probably would have been 5, pushing the Coke spot out of the top 10. On Go Daddy, I do hate the spot, but it does seem to get the results they're looking for. They've never been about doing "good" Super Bowl spots, they've always been about getting the results they want. Not sure if hurting the brand is worth it, but they seem to think so.

Absolutely. if you don't look at the whole marketing mix as a whole, you can make some unintended missteps.
