My friends at SUCCESS asked me to contribute to their ongoing Modern Marketing series from the ‘Be Bold’ perspective, which is awesome because I’ve entertained a growing fascination with the way that the stodgy old insurance industry has created three of the boldest, freshest marketing campaigns around:

“The imagination behind the selling power of a charming duck, an aggressively cheerful woman with shellacked hair, and all manner of violent accidents personified by a calm, rugged leading man is noteworthy: Bold marketing works. The juxtaposition of humor, likability and entertainment with old-school, boring insurance is a big part of the boldness in these marketing campaigns.”

The August edition of SUCCESS is on newsstands now and you can pick it up at your local Barnes & Noble bookstore.
