Dr Pepper Hot Ad

Gosh, amazing Hot Dr. Pepper never really caught on. I love old ads like this; so many companies had no grasp of branding decades ago {this one is from 1969}. They just threw a bunch of ideas out there, hoping something would stick. Today, we’re left with lots of old marketing ploys to giggle over.

And yet the concept of branding still eludes lots of creative entrepreneurs. How in the world do you build your brand on a shoestring budget and with little marketing experience? This is why I’m so excited about a super-special giveaway I’m hosting here this weekend!

My buddy and web expert Michele Bergh launches her new e-course, The Heart of Your Brand, this Monday and one of YOU gets to be part of it! I know! Amazing, right??

I know people who have loved the all-day workshop Michele teaches on this; now all that juicy content is available to entrepreneurs online. Check out the course details; I think it’s perfect for creative spirits and small business owners! She’s giving one lucky reader the full package – the ecourse PLUS two tutoring teleconference calls. A value of $297!

Simply leave a comment below, sharing one of your favorite brands and why you love it by 9pm central this Sunday, 7.17.11. You must also include your EMAIL ADDRESS in your comment. You can earn up to two bonus entries by sharing this giveaway via Twitter or Facebook and leaving a comment below for each. One winner will be selected randomly via Random.org. and notified Sunday night. Wheeeee! BIG thanks to Michele for this generous giveaway – good luck everyone!

This giveaway is now over. 

Congratulations to our winner, Joann Loftus! 
Enjoy the e-course with Michele. It’s gonna rock!
