Everyone likes samples. To advertise, the Mint should offer money.
James Gardner of Adverlicious kindly shared this bad airport advertising from Boston’s Logan Airport.
It stands outside the gate for the commuter flights to New York at Boston’s Logan Airport. James doesn’t recall ever seeing a child on the commuter flights he frequents. Further, the Mint’s ad makes money look goofy and sort of cheap.
Instead, how about a call to action? “Take our tour and we’ll give you a coin that’s still hot!”
Heck, the Feds could count that as “stimulus.” Otherwise, this ad seems like a waste of … money.
