You may not care about online advertising as an industry. But what about your free Gmail account? YouTube? It gets worse.
With the exception of large and most successful companies with breakout products, ad agencies loathe promising success in growing sales. Ad agencies, web shops, and other related firms like SEO and copywriting agencies can’t guarantee real success because they have no control over the products they’re advertising.
Most every client and organization I can think of won’t do this, though, because it’s dishonest and manipulative. For all the talk of the state of our media, I’ll know journalism is truly dead when small lot car salesman or people with literally zero name recognition figure this out and make it work for them.
