Here are 3 tips to gut check the consciousness within your marketing projects this week
1) Speak plainly. Remove flowery, meaningless language and fake branding
Here is a link to the brand that was discussed (Mercedes Maybach AMG SPEEDSHIFT Manually Interactive Automatic Transmission (Standard) SOURCE: https://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/vehicles/compare/class-S/model-S560X4/year-2018#make1=Mercedes-Benz&model1=10396&trim1=47904&year1=2018)
2) Remove undocumented claims Mercedes says the Maybach has unmatched comfort. We challenge marketers to prove their claims. https://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/vehicles/class/class-S/bodystyle-MAY)
3) Raise the bar and give back- Go beyond 5th grade english…your dumbing society down with an expectation of undereducation in one of the richest countries in the world. Let’s educate and teach reading instead…or find a way your brand can make a difference in at least one of the communities it serves…in a TANGIBLE way.
