You don't have to be from the Ave. of Mad to know the difference between a good ad and bad.

One more cleanad and then it's back to URL-spotting for me. Great (white) out-of-the-box, er... tube thinking here. Really makes you wanna run up to that bottle and take a good whiff, aye? Great white-out-of-the-box thinking here.
What started with a simple URL obsession has blossomed into an all-consuming marketing mania. As a marketing professional, my day job requires me to critically evaluate good and bad marketing ideas. For some reason, I decided to devote my nights and weekends to that same pursuit. Of course, in this setting, I get to pick the companies I assess and don't have to mince my words. So join me here as I set out to put my stamp of Good or Bad on every ad that flashes before my eyes (and camera lens).
My name is Aaron Goldman and I'm a marketing junkie. My day job is CMO at Kenshoo, a global technology platform for managing online advertising campaigns. So, yes, I have a vested interest in Good and Bad Ads.
Are You Ad Aware?
Come across any remarkable ads lately? Snap a pic and send them to BadAdGoodAd@gmail.com and I'll slap a rating on those bad (and good) boys... and, of course, add my remarks.
