Lake Forest, IL (PRWEB) January 25, 2007
According to Brian Vaszily, consumer advocate and popular online columnist, "The number one reason that marketing has degenerated into a range of sinister tricks played on consumers is because most merchandise, services, brands, people, ideas and beliefs being marketed these days are crap, and there is more of this crap than ever."
The close number two reason?
"Because our trust in one another is almost extinct," says Brian Vaszily. And therefore, even when marketers DO promote one of the relative few worthwhile products or services directly -- without the use of "tricks" -- no one believes a word of it. Therefore, according to Vaszily, even the well-intentioned marketers have to resort to "tricks" to get their products recognized.
