Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Who knows what?

Posted on | May 10, 2014 | 1 Comment

I came across this site and it really made me think about what our youth know about industries that many of us take for granted, in this case advertising.

We live and breath advertising but how much do we know about the industry.

As it turns out our youth know little, very little.

Go visit this site and see for yourself.

I was surprised by the answers to what is advertising.

“What is advertising?”
“You use it to persuade people to buy products. Something to promote products or other stuff you sell.”
“You get advertising on TV.”

I like to think that advertising plays a key role in telling the story of a brand, organisation, city and would attract the best minds, I may be very wrong.

And the winner for: “Would you work in an ad agency?”

“Hell no. Only if I had my own business I would do my own advertising. I mean, why would I need a bunch of old guys like you? I mean, I would make my own money, so why would I give it away to you?”

This is some good food for thought.

    This is beyond depressing.
