Alphabe-Thursday - When - 25 Oct 2012

ALPHABE-THURSDAY


Welcome to another segment of Jenny's, Alphabe-Thursday, where we explore the alphabet world.  Today we honor the letter "W"


WHEN
 WE OPEN OUR MINDS




When walking through the Warehouse District of New Orleans, Louisiana one can't help but be touched by the creations one can gather in a single walk.


We always get, what reaches within our soul........




WHEN, MARKETERS GET IT RIGHT!

The Why, When, Where, and Way that they not only grab my attention but keep it, causing me to return and return again, and to share it with others.

Is it the setting? The character or the music wrapped amongst the where of it all?

You have to check this video out to get it too!


We know that those folks in marketing want to know how to grab us, but

haven't YOU ever asked YOURSELF.... WHY do I prefer this over that?

....and usually it's not the product they're actually selling - that we even care about....right?

I didn't know the Honda had some many extras available. Now that chef had a lot of time on his hands! {:-D

darlin said...

Now I want a Honda! lol I love the extra features but I think my next vehicle could possibly be a Mitsubishi, they have the 10 year warranty which I love. See I can rationalize, but I still want the Honda especially if the chef comes with it! He's rather good looking and a man that can cook, yup I want a Honda now! lol

Have a wonderful day Karen!

The mind is very powerful but also open for influence from the outside the world. Could be positive but also negative.

Greetings,

Being from Louisiana, and having lived in New Orleans a few years, I have always been entranced by the Quarter, the Warehouse District and the Garden District. All draw you in with their beauty, music and interesting wares. It's hard to walk down the street without buying something!! Even for one who lives there!

Welding wrought iron while on a walk in the warehouse district. Wow, how lucky can a gal get! I love the Honda ad, it's a shame American ad-men chose less classy ads. It seems to me that I'm always being talked down to in marking and advertising.

Right on, Karen ~~ But you know, I didn't get New Orleans like you guys. The marketers are messing with me again!!!

My Honda YouTube ad was pointed toward UK residents (I am in London, UK, right now). I clicked cancel to get out of this area pointed ad selection and then it changed to MI. :)

Can' win for losing and I don't ever want a Honda anyway.

Blueshell- that is so interesting! I had no idea!

Karen S. said...

Steve- that's too bad, but I sure know what you mean....someday they may wake up, hopefully before it's too late!

Karen S. said...

Jerry- thanks for stopping by you always make me laugh!

My favorite street in New Orleans is Magazine St. with all its shops and eateries. It's not in the French Qyarter, but it has a feeling about it that I love.

Have you ever seen a tire ad where an old woman returns a tire by throwing it through the plate glass window? I hate that ad, and I would never buy those tires because of it.

Jen said...

Making an emotional connection to make us think we have a need...that is marketing for sure...and it works a lot of the time. I do not need a new Honda...I need no car payment, but I'm not going to find an add selling me that. Hehehe.

I've always wanted to work for an ad agency.

Those heart touching commercials are just amazing!

Love the artwork you shared, too.

Thanks for a wonderful link to the letter W.
