Sony Could Ask Walmart For Flogging Tips

By Li Evans

Pspsonyflog When will big companies learn not to Flog?  Really, you would think that Sony might have been sleeping under a rock (or maybe a container of PSP's from China) in October and November and didn't hear about the Walmart Flogging Fiasco.  Hattip to AdRants for sending me in "All I want for XMas is a PSP" FLOG/Blog (no link love going there btw) direction.

The company that's assisting Sony in navigating this Social Media world of Internet Marketing (according to AdRants), is a company who obviously doesn't understand Internet Marketing to well.  I went out to their site and it doesn't even work right.  It's all in Flash, when you click on their services nothing comes up, same for their tools and their clients just shows quotes with logos - you have to hit next to see what they say.

Sonyflogregistraion Wow, what makes huge corporate companies choose companies like this to handle their internet marketing strategies?  One look at that company's online presence would have made me run the other way.  They can't even get their website working right, what makes big corporations think that this company will get their Internet Marketing campaigns right?  Heck, that company couldn't even spend the money to register the domain and keep the information private, how smart was that?  (I blocked out the person's actual name here in the picture, you can do a whois lookup and get the name yourself.)

Update:  Logic & Emotion blog also has a piece about this, which also hattips AdFreak.
