Commercials, Campaigns and Ads from Blend Out Book

26 Nov, 2021 BY Nicolle


There are a lot of GREAT marketing examples referenced throughout the book “Blend Out: From Ordinary To Irresistible: How Advisors Can Market Like The Greatest Brands In The World.”

In a recent episode of the podcast, (Pop) Culture Club, they did a review of the book.

Halfway through, Tori Levy mentioned:

“What I appreciated most from Robert Sofia is all the examples that he set out to put in the book because I felt like I was going back and forth from Googling stuff to going on Youtube and watching the marketing campaigns that he talked about.” 

That gave us an idea!

We want to help the book really come to life for our readers. And if they’re going to want to check out these commercials, campaigns, ad, and branding examples, then we’re going to make it way easier.
