Three Ad Machs for Professional Rodeo Announcer: Joe Scully, ProRodeo MCRecently I was tasked in designing an ad for myself in a magazine.  It would be much easier to fill out a form on a dating site... 

Marketing 101 dictates to understand your market, the platform, and join the two together... or something like that.  I slept through most of my Marketing courses, but I learned something like that through osmosis, I guess.

Which of the three ads do you like best?  Please answer in the comments section.

Ad #1 - The Sole Tweet

I like this one because it's kind of "artsy" and all encompassing of what I do in 140 characters.  Plus Twitter is my platform of choice.

 

Ad #2 - The Advertorial

This one is good because it's a third-person written article that focuses on my announcing career.

 

Ad #3 - The Infographic

Infographics are the "thing of the day"... this was my first stab at doing one.  I think it's kind of trendy, and it really drives home the additional services I provide.

With all of the design I do, it's always my own stuff that is the most difficult.  Gotta run... gotta snap a self-portrait in the washroom mirror.... nay.

Which one do you like?  Answer here.
