See Spot Die

How many times have you seen this one come around?
High quality generic tv commercials customized for your business, at a price.
And how many times have you seen them stick around.
SpotRunner does this, but with a twist.  They use the internet, that makes it all better!
Nope. Here’s a story from TechCruch about their latest layoffs.  “Throw in natural attrition, and the company, which at one point numbered more than 500 employees, could soon be down to less than 120 people.”

I don’t care how high the quality is, with a small business, in a small market, in tough economic times, if you can still afford the airtime, free production always wins.

Why pay $500 for this…

When you can get this for free…

Brewster’s Millions II, The Deficit

In part one Montgomery Brewster (Richard Pryor) has just 30 days to blow 30 million dollars. If he does he wins 300 million.

This time he’s in for a real challenge. Brewster has to spend 1.75 Trillion dollars! But to asking him to do this in just 30 days would be unfair.

So let’s do some math. If he spends one million dollars every hour, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, he’ll need almost 200 year to meet the goal.

$1,000,000 x 24 (hours) = $24,000,000
That’s per day.
$24,000,000 x 365 (days) = $8,760,000,000
That’s per year.
$8,760,000,000 x 200 (years) = $1,752,000,000,000
That’s 1.7 Trillion dollars (give or take a Billion.)
And that’s a long movie.

You don’t even want to think about seeing Brewster’s Millions III, The Payback.
