Introducing: Marketing Lemons - The Write Idea

Introducing: Marketing Lemons

By Renae Gregoire

A new column dedicated to documenting -- and hopefully ridding the Internet of -- marketing lemons, one at a time

I've long been a collector of marketing lemons: Mistakes, bloopers, gotchas, boondoggles, and annoyances that make it harder for people to do business with or buy from a company.

Today, after running across two lemons, one after the other, I decided to create this column: Marketing lemons. 

This column is for me as much as it is for you; it's a place where I can quickly record the lemons that cross my path every day.

My hopes are that you and other marketers on the web will use these lemons to make sweet marketing lemonade for yourselves and your prospects and customers: marketing that makes it easy for people to interact with, explore, and buy from your brand.

Ready to pucker up? 

Me, too. Let's go!
