Brand, branding, and fan dedication

Brand, branding, and fan dedication:

It must be a marketer’s dream, to see this. A tattoo of a logo.

One of fredlet’s old Austin buddies, he had the best “geek” tat of all. He had a bar code for spam.

Right there, on his arm. That’s brand, branding, and fan dedication, all in one.

Thinking of that bit of ink, have to include my favorite Sagittarius rock star, and his arm piece, a heart and its scroll, “Her Name.”

    “Next time, the thing to do?” he explained, rolling up his sleeve to show me the ink, “just leave it blank; that way, you can write any girl’s name in with a sharpie.”

If I mentioned the rock star by name? That’s brand, branding, and fan dedication, all in one.

Web Start:

The home page. It’s a Mac App that lets a user define the items that the user wants on a startup screen.

Me? I use a web page for that. Machine independent.

    Hint: works on phones, tablets, iPads, Kindle, netbooks, notebooks and desktop machines.

What I always liked about the web? “No app required.”

    bar code for spam–yeah!
    tat with blank for current flame?–funny!
    Mac App that lets a user define the items that the user wants on a startup screen is probably the best thing since sliced bread.

    Lots of goodies–read before moving along to Maddow Blog.
