One thought on “Marketing Campaign Analysis (Outdoor)

  1. Ryan,

    Seatbelt ads are some that always stand out to me. I had a coach when I was young who was thrown out a windshield when she wasn’t buckled in the backseat. Thankfully she was and is okay, but ever since these ads always hold a more impactful meaning to me. I really love the IBM Smarter Cities ads, they are a useful and effective marketing tool that helps to make the city a better place. I think that style of marketing is a great idea.
