Why no Superbowl fast food ads?

Someone broached the question to me during the game, in almost a disappointed tone. Fast food is supposed to be as integral as puppies, talking babies, celebrity endorsements, etc. to Superbowl marketing. So why didn’t we see any? A legitimate question, though not quite fair to Subway. Subway bought in last minute to promote their chicken enchilada sub, as a number of other companies were pulling out their bids. It wasn’t a spectacular commercial, but it was there, and personally made me want to check out the new sandwich.

Yet compare that lackluster effort to how many car and beer commercials appeared? That’s not quite a fair comparison. Cars and beer have a healthy, historic marriage with football commercial time. Possible suggestions arise: that the fast food chains are already well known staples, so have no need to raise awareness, or that their profit margins run too slim to throw money into advertising. Both of these won’t satisfy, however, because then companies like Coca Cola and Budweiser would have no reason to appear.

No easy answers here. No matter how you look at it, Superbowl advertising is a gamble, like high risk stocks. The upside could be tremendous, alternatively, you could just be out a lot of money. In the worst imaginable scenario, the company’s commercial is received neither positively or negatively, and thus generates no response, no buzz, no controversy, and like Subway’s pitch this year, is virtually forgotten. At around $4 million for 30 seconds, that’s a tough financial pill to swallow.

Medjool dates thrive at Marthas Gardens in Yuma

There are dates and then there are dates. And like the human variety, dates come in both sexes. Date palms, which produce these nutritious fruits, have been cultivated since at least 5,000 B.C.E. for their nutrition and medicinal properties. Date palms were brought to the West Coast of America in the 1700s by Spanish missionaries. But it was not until 1927 that medjool dates, the finest kind, were brought to the U.S. from Morocco. From 11 shoots, a medjool date industry grew all over the arid Southwest.

I was pleased to be introduced to the medjool date at Martha’s Gardens Medjool Date Farm in Yuma, Arizona. In 1990, the Rogers family cleared and irrigated a few desert acres and planted 300 medjool date shoots. Today, the Rogers’ date farm consists of 100 acres and eight thousand date palms. Female plants vastly outnumber male plants for two reasons: the male plants produce inferior dates, and the female plants need pollination by male plants. Leaving nothing to chance, the female dates are personally pollinated by workers who collect the male pollen and sprinkle it on the female plants.

Date growing is complicated and labor intensive, so a narrated tour of the farm gave me more respect for a fruit I usually picked out of fruit cakes along with the figs. (I ate the cherries, so my family thinks cherries are not a fruit cake ingredient,) At my house, gifts of date candy got passed on to the dogs or Trick or Treaters, and any recipe that included dates went untested.

Although the tour of the farm was fascinating in the complexity of growing and harvesting this fruit, my mouth was not watering for a sample. After all, everything on offer was either dates or date-related.Then, sighing because this is my job, I popped a medjool date in my mouth like it was a quinine pill. Sweet, chewy, satisfying, and utterly surprising.

I ate a few more. I bought some to take home; I ordered several gift packages to be shipped for upcoming family birthdays. My friends and I went back to our van with date shakes for the road.

Back home while it was sleeting, I cooked up two loaves of Date Nut Tea Bread from a recipe on their website: I invited a few friends for coffee, and together we discovered how tasty a date can be. The secret is in the type of date. Be sure to use medjool dates for the best texture and flavor. They are available in most large supermarkets and specialty food stores. Or, you can order directly from Marthas Gardens at the website listed above.

Happy dating!

Things to keep in mind when advertising internationally

It’s always a big step when companies decide to advertise internationally. It means new customers, new exposure, and especially new profit. However, all it takes is just one silly faux pas to ruin a whole campaign.

Language is always a barrier and phrases are constantly being lost in translation. The famous and beloved 90s “Got Milk?” campaign hit a wall when trying to convert the ad into Spanish. Allegedly the translated quote ended up saying “Are you lactating?”, which didn’t make for an affective ad and it flopped.

Cultural expectations for what’s appropriate also varies from country to country. A 2005 clothing ad was banned in France by the Catholic Church. The ad was based on Da Vinci’s Last Supper with models looking fabulous while replicating the painting. China put a halt on all ads containing pigs in order to maintain peace with the Muslim population.

Wisconsin Dental Office Advertisements from the 1890's

Dentists from all around Wisconsin during the 1890’s used what seemed to be the same standard graphic of dentures in their ads. It must have been the one dental picture printers had handy at the time. A few dentists from Chicago actually had drawings of themselves inserted into the ad in the newspaper. Most dentists had it printed in newspapers that they did painless dentistry.

Back then Odontunder was used for the “painless” extraction of teeth. The ingredients were a mystery to dentists at the time. The Medical World had a list in 1893 of what was thought to be in Odontunder by a Dr. Charles L. Kerr of Falls City, Nebraska. The ingredients he said worked were – Olel gaultheriae, Chloroform, Ether sulph, Olel caryophyll, Chloralis, Alcoholis. The instructions from Dr. Kerr were to apply with cotton to each side of the tooth.

Dr. A.P. Burris of Janesville had an interesting marketing style. He used a drawing of what looks like a rat with a witch hat carrying a stick with four upper denture plates dangling from the stick. This was unusual compared to other dental advertising in Wisconsin at that time and it must have gotten a lot of attention.

In a biography about Dr. Burris it states that he invented a steam engine to use in filling teeth. It appears that his named was spelled incorrectly in the rat with dentures advertisement in the Jefferson County newspaper.

There were a few traveling dentists in Wisconsin. Some of them even came to towns where there were already dentists practicing at the same time. This was true in Boscobel, Wisconsin.

In 1894 dentists W.T Hurd and Dr. R.R. Powell both had small ads in The Enterprise published on January 17, 1894. Dr. N. Weinberg was coming to town during that time and let everyone know in the very same newspaper on Jan 31, 1894. The public was invited to come to the parlor at Central House in Boscobel during one week in February to see him. Thirteen patients who lived in Richland Center who had work done by Weinberg and would endorse him were named in the newspaper. Dr. N. Weinberg was noted to be the painless dentist and head of Columbus Dental Parlors of Chicago.

E.H. Keith placed an ad in the Eagle River Democrat on Monday July 1st, 1895 that he would be in Eagle River on the 27th and 28th of each month and he let people know he used Odontunder for extractions. His office was in Rhinelander but he came to see patients at the Veronica Hotel in Eagle River, Wisconsin.

W.T. Poad was a dentist in Marshfield. His competition was a dentist named E.V. Kautsky. They both were listed in the Marshfield News under the business cards section on July 25, 1895. Poad had the upper plate graphic next to his tiny ad and it said he used gas to extract teeth. W.T. Poad also placed an ad in the Wisconsin State Gazetter 1895-96 edition. It stated Poad did “Dentistry in all its branches.” Dentists seemed to stop placing large ads in the Wisconsin State Gazetter after this edition.

Dentist E.H. Watrous had the standard graphic of the upper plate denture in the Sheboygan Herald on Sept 29, 1894. Then he started using Steadman Springs dentures and a graphic of them appeared with Watrous’ ad in the Sheboygan Herald on April 27, 1895. The spring idea on a denture didn’t really catch on like they expected.

In 1912 a paper was published on the use of swivel springs on dentures by the Royal Society of Medicine. W.W. Gabell had said that he thought the ignorance of the use of springs was why they had fallen into disuse. If you look at the picture Watrous used in the Sheboygan Herald of the Steadman Springs denture you might agree that they just looked painful to wear.

One of the only ads without dentures as an eye-catching graphic was from Dr. F.E. Pilcher of Portage, Wisconsin. Pilcher did not advertise pain free dentistry either and stated that bridge, crown and gold work were a specialty. Dr. Pilcher’s dental office was located over the post office. (The Daily Register, Monday January 7, 1895).

An unfortunate incident was noted about Dr. Pilcher in a dental magazine called The Dental Summary (Vol. 22). It was reported that Dentist F.E. Pilcher of Sparta, Wisconsin was “held up” and robbed of a gold watch and $50 in money on October 1st, 1901.

Dr. W.W. Tarr placed an ad in the Racine Daily Journal on Jan 26, 1895. A drawing of him was right below an ad about curing syphilis. Tarr’s ad was also near a story from the Buffalo Express about a barber named Balthasar Guggenheimer using hypodermic syringes in shaving bristles and injecting customers with cocaine. The story talks about how victims suffered at the barbers before the “happy” discovery of ether, nitrous oxide and cocaine. Times sure have changed.

Is it money your business should spend?

Are you familiar with Facebook’s algorithm called EdgeRank?

Do you know EdgeRank was implemented to limit who sees your posts? Meaning that even if you have 2500 loyal brand advocates who have Liked your page, only a tiny fraction of them may see what you post and you have no control over it.

In 2014 Facebook Advertising Will Be A Necessity If You Want More Reach
Facebook statistics show organic reach for your Business Page is dropping like a bowling ball off a high-rise. Facebook’s suggested solution is for your business to pay for Facebook advertising.

To be clear: Facebook is purposefully limiting the number of people who see your posts and suggesting you advertise with them so the people who already Like your page, have a better chance of seeing what you post.

A quick aside. Just to be fully transparent. You should know I was one of the lucky ones to participate in the Facebook IPO debacle. I am the proud owner of very few shares of Facebook stock that today is actually worth a little something. So, to be honest, I’d love it if all 1.2 billion people on Facebook bought advertising in 2014 so the value of my stock goes up.

Keep in mind; this isn’t the most recent news. In 2007 CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced, “The next hundred years will be different for advertising, and it starts today.” And then, in 2012 before the IPO we started to learn about “Facebook’s EdgeRank algorithm, designed to enhance users’ experience by putting only the relevant content in their news feeds.” And Facebook gets to determine what’s relevant to you!

Should Your Business Question Its Facebook Presence?
Here’s the way I see it. Businesses have created Facebook Pages en masse and they’ve paid to sponsor posts and bought advertising in order get more people to Like the Page. And now, business owners have to pay even more money just so the people who Like their Page can see their updates.

What do you think about all this? Will your business be buying Facebook ads in 2014?
