A festive Applebee’s ad appeared picture-in-picture in live news about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine — and the jarring placement went viral. Here’s how Applebee’s and CNN responded.
This week, Disney unveiled plans for Storyliving, a Disney-branded Palm Springs town. It’s pretty! But Twitter also found it pretty creepy. Here’s why.
When Adidas tweeted an image of 25 people’s bare breasts to promote its new sports bra range, they turned heads. But was the tweet really a good idea?
Wordle is having a moment — and as of last week, we have a Taylor Swift-themed version. Does that make branded word games the future of marketing? Not exactly.
This week, the villain of TikTok is a (self-described) West Elm furniture designer. Could his internet infamy possibly be a good thing for West Elm’s brand?
We got the backstory on an ad that looked “cheap and not polished enough to run” to an agency founder — and now gets 50% of its account’s total spend.
Nike could run paid campaigns for its Air Jordans, but we haven't seen a paid Jordans ad in years (or ever). MarketerHire asked sneakerheads why that might be.
Ryan Reynolds’ agency turned around Peloton’s viral (and now vanished) Mr. Big ad in two days. Can other creatives follow this playbook — and should they?
The copywriting on Spotify users’ end of year playlists inspired some fanfiction this week. It was so highkey fire that we had to lightly censor it! 😳
Cranberry sauce and Ocean Spray are basically synonyms — and both gets a surge of attention every Thanksgiving. But Ocean Spray takes a laid back approach to the holiday, and lets fans' tweets do the talking.
Peloton had a stellar 2020 — but 2021 hasn’t been as kind to the exercise bike company. Even a culty brand with a devoted fan base has to answer to larger market forces.
Fortune cookie ads might feel like proof marketing has (finally!) gone too far. But this type of spon inside fortune cookies has actually been around for decades.
Every other tweet last week poked fun at Facebook’s new name — but one brave tweeter noticed some silver linings. Let’s examine the two main ones he found, and a few others we brainstormed at MarketerHire.
Facebook’s expected rebrand won’t be the first time a major tech company has changed name and structure to appease investors and protect its properties. But will what worked for Google work for Facebook?
Megan Thee Stallion just launched a new “Hottie Sauce” with Popeyes. Why is it so perfect? We asked our in-house expert on celebrity-branded fast food.
The suggestion of drinking mayonnaise or adding it to coffee gives people an almost immediate gag-reflex. That might be why it works as an engagement-driving strategy.
At lots of companies, marketers are the "ideas people." And sometimes, as this week's tweet reminded us, that means marketers are the ones who end up rejecting a lot of bad ideas.
The new rain in the weather app is definitely really cool. But for marketers, the buzziest feature is something less visible: Mail Privacy Protection.
If YouTubers get more views than the Super Bowl, is there any point in advertising during live events anymore? We dug into the pros and cons of each channel.
Marketers always complain that it’s hard to cut through the noise. One Twitter user has an answer for this all-too-common pain point. It’s a joke… or is it?
How does Halara have enough money to fully saturate TikTok with advertisements? They’re even targeting middle-aged men… and they make athleisure for women.
In mid-August, SEOs noticed that their title tags weren't appearing in Google search results as intended — they were getting algorithmically rewritten. What does that mean for organic search strategy?
The agency vs. in-house debate never dies, but it's getting old. It feels particularly outdated right now because it ignores an important employment option for marketers: freelancing.

How does one master social media? Well, you could use it... or apparently go to school for it. But should you? That's a hot topic on #MarketingTwitter.
Marketing and advertising aren't synonyms — all advertising is marketing, but not all marketing is advertising. Inspired by a tweet, we dug into the distinction.
Tinned fish has suddenly become the official food of "hot girls" everywhere — and marketing has to be involved. But who's the marketing push coming from? We did some research.
If you see a job description start to trend, take a closer look. The job might implicitly be to turn back time and make Facebook ads work like they used to.
It feels like this email lifted HBO Max’s brand — and shifted American culture as we know it — at least as much as Mare of Easttown. And it was way cheaper.
When we asked if your brand’s logo “goes rainbow” in June, only 33% of you said yes — 67% said you skip it. Here's why you said you go rainbow, or don't. Some good, and some very, very bad reasons included.
