Advertising markets in everything

I wonder if this idea will last:

A new hot dog stand is being built on the West Side, and when it opens, the people behind the counter could be ex-convicts.

As CBS 2's Vince Gerasole reports, the restaurant is controversial, not because of the felons, but the two words on the outside of the building.

Felony Franks is Jim Andrews' new hot dog stand, currently under construction on a busy West Side corner, decorated with freshly painted wieners donning prison garb and a ball and chain, proclaiming "food so good it's criminal."

The full story is here and I thank John de Palma for the pointer.

The Delancey Street Restaurant in San Francisco that is staffed by ex-felons is pretty decent… they’re much subtler about it, though!

Dressing up in costumes to hawk a food joint is old-school marketing. New school marketing distills everything down to just two elements: meat and lasers.

felons, ok, but are they buddhists?

In NY the hot dog would have to be dressed up like a Wall street banker to match the “felon” tag.

Interesting!

In the past, offline media was one of the major mediums to promote one’s business and brand awareness. However, with the increasing popularity of the online media and its positive results, more people are turning to online marketing techniques to build a strong business presence across the globe. There are several online marketing strategies we can use for our Internet marketing solutions, but SEO (search engine optimization) today has taken a stance much ahead of any other technique.

SEO brings with it tremendous scope for business improvement with improved keyword positioning, improved ranking and overall increase in the ROI and cuts down on the PPC cost extensively in the long run. This is a proven marketing solution if done the right way using the right techniques based on your website requirements.

I thought this information would be helpful for those who wish to promote their website and get great results.
