How Advertising Works in Chippenham #12

  1. Think about well known phrases associated with finance and the financial crisis
  2. Choose one of these phrases to play with
  3. Dream up a whacky promotion which has nothing to do with your core product, beer
  4. Negotiate with companies to display the promotion in unusual places
  5. Wait for a blogger with a camera to notice what's happened to her supermarket trolley
  6. Et voila!

  1. Haha, this really made me chuckle!I love things that play on words.

    I'm still having problems accessing your blog sometimes, but have NO idea why. Very frustrating! I suspect it has far more to do with my computer than your site though :)

    I'll pop in when I can!
