I’ve commented previously on the Ad Age Small Agency Diary in the past, but its worth another mention, especially after reading some of their recent posts.
If you have a few minutes, check out Bart Cleveland’s most recent entry: Saying No to Cheap Clients.

Several weeks ago I made a post about hearing a “help wanted” ad on the radio. This morning it came to mind again, as I heard help wanted ads for both A-1 Plumbing and Zamzows during the 8:00 – 9:00 hour on different radio stations.
On one hand I still think that this is an effective way to reach potential candidates, and I have to raise the question again — have the help wanted ads in the newspaper really become that ineffective, or that expensive? Another thought occurred to me however… Maybe the sales people at the stations are just getting more creative at selling their air time…

There’s the makings of an interesting conversation regarding shifts in advertising revenue going on over at the Idaho Radio News website. Might be worth keeping an eye on.

Looks like things are hopping over at Oliver Russell & Associates:
Rich Clark has been hired as an interactive art director. While it isn’t specifically mentioned, sources tell me that Rich is working out of Oliver Russell’s Portland office, rather than the Boise office.
Kelli Fulton has been promoted from copywriter to senior copywriter.
Arynn Oyler has been promoted from account coordinator to account executive.
Congratulations to all.

Es/drake has finally launched their new website, after a few months of “coming soon” promises. I gave it a quick run-through this morning, and its got a good look-and-feel to it. There’s quite a bit of information on the site, which is always promising, although the navigation could use a little help (my own opinion, of course).
To the folks over at es/drake: Well done. You’ve set the bar high for yourselves, and your challenge will now be to meet those expectations on a regular basis. Remember, in today’s online world its all about the content. If its a sexy-looking flash-based site, but the news is six months old, you’d better believe I won’t be back any time soon.

Its now been four days since the Rockies Awards were handed out, but still nothing from the Boise Advertising Federation, or individual agencies, indicating who won what.
The fact is well documented — award-winning work produces better results for the client. So why not take a moment to pat yourself on the back for what you’ve accomplished (just don’t break your arm doing it). The recognition also becomes one more piece of the puzzle that is your ability to “sell” the agency to potential future clients.
Or was everything produced last year really that bad?
