12 sales tips from Grand Theft Auto’s hilarious fake adverts

I’ve possibly never had so much fun writing an Econsultancy blog post. For an hour or so yesterday, I was listening to ‘old’ in-game radio adverts from the Grand Theft Auto computer games, handily available here.

Whilst they are hilarious, in aping existing companies they also use many of the ad man’s techniques to sell a product.

I’ve tried to succinctly describe these techniques in this post. I hope you enjoy the fake product names and slogans as much as I did, and aren't put off by the some of the products' slightly poor taste. Thanks to GTA Wiki, where I grabbed the crazy product images.

Mega fun with YouTube Trends

During YouTube’s Geek Week, I saw this article announcing Batman as the superhero most popular on YouTube.

This appealed to me. I like lists and graphs, I like Batman, and I like YouTube. So I thought I’d write a throw away post and try to delight you with some other YouTube rankings and trends.

You’re welcome.
