In today’s world of advertising oversaturation, it’s really hard to get your marketing message out. Sure, you can try making a “viral” video, but if you really want to get your name out there, you need to do something a little different to stand out from the crowd. How about running your ad in some guy’s facial hair?
Well thanks to Cornett IMS and their new Beardvertising service, you now can. For a fee, companies can now promote their wares in the oversize beards of its hirsute marketers. Ads are placed on “BeardBoards” – tiny billboards which clip into a wearer’s beard, and are sure to grab attention of passersby.
Better yet, if you have a substantive beard, you can make money wearing a BeardBoard, getting paid up to $5 a day for promoting an advertiser’s wares on your chin. If you think your beard might make the cut, you can sign up over on the Beardvertising website now.
So far, Beardvertising has signed on A&W Restaurants and Eagle One Automotive Appearance as clients, but I think that they might want to go after Remington or Norelco too.
