Ever scroll through your newsfeed and see duplicate images? Or they are not exactly similar, but advertising the same thing? I crash into this event multiple times a day, multiple times a year, with multiple companies.
The cupcake fad continues with a twist. Baked by Melissa makes bite-sized cupcakes that come in unusual flavors. Other than the yearly collection, Melissa develops a unique cupcake for each month (#miniofthemonth). Past flavors include cotton candy, candy corn, sweet potato pie, and lemon cheesecake. May 2014 was one of my personal favorites (it was delicious!), Neapolitan. Baked by Melissa advertised this cupcake the entire month of May with various posts on all social media platforms with corporate and fan based pictures.
If you are a fan of my posts, there is no reason to go into the speech about Lilly Pulitzer. I feel in LOVE with this Riley Tassel Trim Infinity Loop Scarf (long name). I found these different images advertising the exact same product from the Lilly Pulitzer Pinterest page. What photo do you think sells the scarf better?
What ingredient do you advertise on Easter? Vanilla? Honey? Aloe? Nope, chocolate! These pictures are from two countries – LUSH Australia on Instagram and LUSH Willowbrook Mall (USA) on Facebook. They utilize the same image and almost the same copy. Coincidence? I think not. I am sure LUSH corporate distributed this picture with a caption. What do y’all think?
