If you buy name brand clothes and products, more than likely you’re covered in logos. From your Versace shirt, to your Nalgene water bottle, to your Nike shoes, consumers are walking billboards advertising the brands they buy. Others see you and think “Hey, that looks pretty cool, maybe I’ll buy a Nalgene bottle.”
This isn’t right or wrong, but it is reality. We as consumers advertise the brands we buy. Be it through word of mouth, or huge logos on our purchases. We help companies sell products. How much, as consumers, are we getting paid for this? Nothing. But that’s ok. That’s the way it is.
So, imagine my intrigue when I read about Snap My Ad. It was developer by a couple who realized that when they use instagram and say good things about a company, they’re basically making an ad for the brand.
