2010′s most creative and innovative retail advertisements named

1 Comment | This entry was posted in Events, Marketing

Sometimes commercials and other forms of advertisements cause such a stir, it becomes a natural conversation topic anywhere you go. It’s quite common these days to be chatting with a colleague and somewhere along the way a certain funny, gripping, controversial, emotional or dynamic commercial or ad gets mentioned.

Retailers often aim for that exact reaction – will this be talked about? Does it make the right point? Will it help or hurt our brand? Sometimes they nail it, other times they don’t. This year, at NRF’s INNOVATE conference during the Racie Awards Luncheon, the Retail Adertising and Marketing Association will recognize 2010′s most creative and innovative advertisements - from radio and television to social commerce and website , and even gift card campaigns.

    Would it be possible to add links to all content, or perhaps post a slideshow with print ads/gift cards and create a Youtube/Vimeo channel with videos? Thank you for considering this now or in the future.
