RAZOR BRANDING BLOG: Advertising in the Real World

Advertising in the Real World

This is to all of my friends who work in other fields (doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants, etc.) and read this blog to be supportive (and because I often question you to see if you read it thoroughly).  I know you often wonder EXACTLY what it is like at my job every day. 

Here you go.  

I think this vignette does a fantastic job of explaining what it is really like to work in the field of advertising right now.

Oh, you are going to call or email me later and tell me how funny that video is and secretly you will think that I am kidding.

I'm not.

This is really what it is like.

And to clients, current and potential, if (and when) you act like this, don't be surprised to find this video waiting for you in your email inbox.

It really is right on. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry.

It just kills me. So true and so painful.

As bad as this is, it's just part and parcel of an overall disrespect for advertising and marketing professionals. Clients (and employers) hire us because of our expertise and experience, then question everything we do and pick apart every strategy and tactic.

Can you imagine taking this approach with your accountant, or lawyer, or your plumber? < /rant>

That's what I love about this video. Takes the comments they say to us and shows how crazy they sound in other situations.
