If George Jetson Were An Adman, He’d Work At The Escape Pod

The Escape Pod’s sizzle reel isn’t like other sizzle reels. Likely because The Escape Pod is not like other agencies, stuck in some lame 20th century paradigm. Vinny Warren, partner in the Chicago agency, says The Escape Pod is an “advertising agency of the present.” Clearly, they have a finger on the zeitgeist, which you […]

A BeanCast, And A Book

A couple of items of self-promotion, if you’ll allow me the privilege. First, I had the great opportunity to make a repeat appearance on this week’s BeanCast, which also featured: Steve Hall of AdRants, Kristi Faulkner of NYC’s Womenkind, Jim Hopkinson of The Hopkinson Report, and of course, show host Bob Knorpp. We got into […]

A Peek Under The AdPulp Hood

AdPulp Jobs

There’s been quite a bit of activity under the hood at AdPulp, of late. I’d like to catch you up on some of it. First, we launched a new Jobs Section, with help from JobThread. It’s something we’ve discussed doing in the past, but we had Talent Zoo as a sponsor here for several years, […]

My Digital Toolbox

David and I often chat about digital workflows we have in place that allows us to get our work done. In my day job, I help run Corporate 3 Design, a nine person brand/print/web shop (we work with agencies as well, so if you need a vendor, give us a shout). We tend to operate […]

Making Space for Sponsors

mashable_sponsored_post

This post is sponsored by tbd. I like how Mashable handles sponsored posts. The value for the advertiser is the fact that the “ad” is embedded in the post, which means it reaches RSS subscribers. AdPulp has 6400+ RSS subscribers, so it’s no small thing to reach this segment of our readership. And for readers […]

Freemium Is A Neat Concept, But Does It Pay?

One of the things I find frustrating about the search for freemium offers that a small percentage of readers might buy is the fact that it fails to address the monetary value of a site’s core offering. The main idea regarding Free as a business model, forwarded by Wired editor Chris Anderson and others, is […]
