Today the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announced an awesome New Years Eve concert with Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder is awesome and doesn’t tour. This will truly be a special event. It’s the kind of even people will travel for. Seriously, I can’t contain my excitement for how awesome this concert will be. I have no doubt it will sell out quickly.
On the other side of the fence at Cosmo is a concert featuring Morrissey. Tickets do not seem to be selling well as every time I switch twitter accounts in hootsuite, I get a promoted tweet announcing the concert and giving away a pair of tickets to see Morrissey.
These ads are annoying and they suck. They make me hate the advertiser. For all of the positive things people say about @Cosmopolitan_lv this wreaks of a desperate attempt to sell tickets and something that was ordered by someone that doesn’t work for the social media team. Last week Reebok ran a similar ad campaign for a John Wall shoe. It was equally as annoying. I unfollowed Reebok after the inundation of tweets. I tried to block them and wasn’t able to.
These twitter ad campaign issues are a twitter problem, more than the business, but if businesses are not told that the construction of the campaign is bothersome, they will never know. So, I’m speaking up and hopefully this is read and passed on.
Bottom line is that this Morrissey concert is still a month away. I don’t like his music and I don’t like these ads and hopefully they won’t run that long. That said, Stevie Wonder is awesome. Go to the concert and buy some music below. Here’s to hoping these ads stop!
