Link Friday: The Promotional Edition

Posted on Friday, June 29, 2012 by Alan

When two dozen cookies were delivered to our office courtesy of Tank Goodness yesterday, it made us reflect on the lengths businesses go to promote themselves. This week’s Link Friday discusses promotions and contests around today, and how successful contests function.

Stay cool this weekend!

Link Friday: The Black Cat Edition

Posted on Friday, April 13, 2012 by Alan

You haven’t broken any mirrors or walked under any ladders today, have you? Friday the 13th is bad enough, what with the hockey-masked killers chasing coeds around campsites and all.

So consider yourself lucky, since you’re getting another edition of Link Friday.

  • Have you used any of these ‘social travel’ apps to plan your trips? Pretty cool look into the potential future of our industry.
  • This eye-catching infographic from VentureBeat shows the economic value of all (OK, not all) the social networks out there.
  • Is this promotion too risque? A model for Stussy (they’re still a brand? 1993 will be happy to hear that) will ditch articles of clothing depending on the number of likes the brand’s Facebook page gets.
  • Here’s another interesting promotion coming to us from across the Atlantic: TNT put a big red button with a sign that said “Push to add drama” in the middle of a sleepy Belgian town square. Here’s what happened.
  • The Internet is ruining our brains? That’s unpossible.

Over and out from P&BHQ. Enjoy your weekend, and stay lucky today!
