William's Blog...with a smile!


Advertising of old...


We have come a long way (most of the time) in our advertising.

Look at this ad for cordless phones.

I personally do not remember this one but look how fancy.

Not real appealing in today's market.


This next one I think would have been marketed to the lady who was put in charge or looking to be moving up in the world.




Try this ad today and all kinds of groups would be on your back side...

A look back to the way back in advertising. A fun post.

Good luck and success.

LOL, yes indeed. How about Joe Namath selling pantyhose? Or Noxema?

Technology is really moving at a fast pace William.

My first cell phone was purchased back in 1989 or 1990.  It was a thing that had a handle so I could carry it around like a purse, and had a cord on it.  Here's a picture.

I dont recall either of these adds, but I do remember the first cordless phones.

Will, not anyone making a comment on the 'Balls' ad.  I would dissagree with you.  The adds today have become much more sexual.  Fun look back.  Thanks
