Marketing advice for Bums

Times are tough right now and Boing Boing and Mt Holly Mayor’s Office have come up with a marketing plan for Public Fund Requisitioning Agent (bum).

Becoming unemployed means considering all of one’s options, like taking up a position as a Public Fund Requisitioning Agent (bum). It’s a tough business here in Minneapolis and considering I will be out of a job in two weeks, I think I need to get my game, beard and hangdog look in shape if I plan to continue to provide for the citizens of Mt. Holly while on the streets.

Yesterday, I saw a guy on the street in full clown gear blowing bubbles while holding up a sign saying “The circus laid me off.” It brings me back to one of my favorite ad campaigns from the past few years.

Frequent Mt. Holly tourist, Todd Norem (noremipsum.com) created these media appropriate and proven effective outdoor boards for his client Ed who reported at least a 800% increase in gross income on days his media ran.
