Look at me... Look at me!

All people everywhere are fighting for attention. In their job, relational status, family, party life, whatever it is, people are wanting to have all eyes focused on them.

In marketing, that translates to branding. You want the public, when they think of your company name, to see your face in the back of their heads.

Some business have gone to great lengths to make this a reality and in the end, surpass their competition with their outrageous antics. In the OKC metro, there are a few that stick out.

(Going to use twitter/business names to keep anonymity)

ALL these tactics are copyrighted (so don't get any ideas ... )

@bonddaddy gives out a "million" dollars with his biz name and contact info (man, wish that was real)

@blogging4jobs carries a knapsack with her twitter name on it.

@thatmightyGguy-slogan is a play on words: "don't call a geek when you can hire a hero"

@lamarokc- uses a billboard on the side of the highway to update tweets that could potentially cause a 10- car pile up.

There are tons more but these are the ones that keep popping up over and over. Needless to say they have the branding thing down.

Social Media Mack. Com is working on a lil thing of their own. Have to be innovative and different.

Just call me Mack- Momma.
