What a stupid mistake to make Mercer PR.
And more to the point Mercer PR – what a crappy way to make a living. From the Mercer PR website:
We assist our clients to minimise adverse publicity and are called upon to deal with issues and crises when company, executive or personal reputations are at risk.
Fact: most companies, executives or people in crisis deserve to be in crisis. Especially the sort who get help from global PR firms such as Mercer PR.
Pro-tip: it’s possible to say no to a prospective client Mercer PR.
Professionals parlaying their reputation. Setting a precedent?
Good to see other professionals unite and use their collective power for good.
On top of everything, it costs MORE than double the 9-hole fee to play 18 holes.
We are all for timing one’s marketing to tie-in with public events, milestones or catalysts but these two PRfails are just awful.
Mind you, if we don’t play golf at these crazy prices (left), the terrorists win. You can tell how respectful they are by the capital C in Commemorate.
And then there’s this awful attempt by a marketing blogger to explain how the attacks of 2001 created sweeping changes in…marketing. It was written in September 2006 and is a sad example of an author who wants to appear thoughtful, respectful and relevant – when all they are doing is trying to fill some space with enough keywords to attract some 9-11 anniversary internet traffic. Worth a read – if only to cringe. It’s title: September 11th – a marketers reflection. Cringing yet? The end bit is glorious.
