I’ve worked in the public relations, marketing, and event planning fields for over 15 years. Hard to believe, actually.
Anyway, as such, I am constantly fascinated by the industry and how it is embracing technology. (Or not.) One of the more interesting things that I have discovered is WalMart and it’s 11 Moms campaign.
As a marketing professional, I think it is real and genuine. As a mom blogger myself, I think it is brilliant. I applaud them for their efforts. Moms are a powerful online force. (Just ask Motrin.)
These ladies are smart, savvy and unique. If you haven’t found them yet … I suggest you take a look.
BTW – there are more than 11 now. Here are some of the originals as a starter:
