AdWeek says "Hitch Your Wagon To A Star"

Posted on 3.23.2006
You can tell a lot about the potential for success (of people and companies) by knowing about the company they keep. Via YahooNews from AdWeek:

Marketers on the hunt for ROI are increasingly using the same tools everyone else uses to search for stuff--Google, Yahoo! and MSN. The most formal and high-profile effort so far has been by Pontiac, which in January took the unusual step of tagging its ads with a plea to "Google Pontiac," in part so it could measure the reach of the ads. Mark-Hans Richer, director of marketing for Pontiac, said since the ads ran, the auto brand's search requests are up about 50 percent higher than anyone in the industry.

So what's the lesson learned? Hitch your wagon to a rising (or risen) star for greater marketing success.
