These guys were the Kings of Marketing for over 50 years

This post is 3 years old and the referenced display is no longer available. I do have it in PDF if anyone is interested PM me and I'll find it.

I just posted this in a reply to another topic but felt everyone needs to see this.

For over 50 years these guys were the Kings of Marketing when there was NO INTERNET.

If you want to understand how to reach someone in 10 seconds or less, look at some of their stuff.

This should give you an idea how to picture your website home page.

Reach the heart of the consumer and you've got a customer for life.

This should help all of you understand advertising a little bit better.

Enjoy... www.smokescents.com

By the way, my wife thinks no one would be interested in this stuff since it's so old but I felt people would like the memories no matter how old they were..

Let me know your opinion...I know the old farts on this forum will appreciate them...

I mean anyone over 50...hehehe

    Classic. Love that old school ad psychology.

    P.S. I don't smoke but I give 'em kudos for being
    such stylish liars.

    I was forced to quit after several near lung failures back in 1986. It was the hardest thing I ever did. I kept sneaking one here and there till I collapsed in a casino in Las Vegas and was dead for a few minutes (this has happened 2 other times in my life...once they say for over 14 minutes) but I could not break the love for tobacco. Some here on this forum might remember me back in 1997-98 I started the first MLM for discount CIGS and help set up about a dozen online Discount tobacco shops and developed 3 different brands for 3 different native American tribes. I got on the 10 most wanted list in every state dept of taxation. Had to go into hiding back in 2001 and then retired till I came out with the inhalers (SmokeScents).. How ironic ..I had to quit but loved the aroma and now I promote aromatherapy inhalers to help smokers when they can't light up..Anyway my wife is hitting me over the head giving out this much info..she thinks I'm still being hunted down..

    I can sympathize and empathize with all you smokers out there...

    Back in the early 80's, I was the head bartender at The Desert Inn in Las Vegas and was know for having a cigarette lit at all time at 3 stations at my bar...Went through 3 pack during an 8 hour shift...UGG back then I hit the roof when the price went to .50 a pack.

      Reminds me of one of my wife's uncles. He only stopped when the doctors said that he would blow himself up by igniting the oxygen he was connected to. Even then, he turned it off to get a puff or two. And the tobacco companies tell you that smoking is not addictive.

    Thanks Steven,

    I never thought about putting my story on the website.

    I guess if the tax boys wanted to find me they would have done so by now...

    I met people from all over the world at that little horse shoe bar. A lot of actors and celebrities especially. Vegas wasn't like the Vegas of today. I could drive from uptown to downtown in 15 minutes or less.
