Chip Martin is no dummy when it comes to advertising. That’s why I read his blog on a regular basis. So when he wrote about an advertising company out of Durham, North Carolina called The Republik; I had to go take a look.
“Dave, why did you not link The Republik website?”
Well, as Chip points out; the only way to get there is to destroy Republik’s old site.
Have you ever seen a website that makes you wanna just pick up a gun and shoot your monitor? Well, now you have the choice of .44 Magnum, Sniper rifle, or shotgun. The Republik invites you to blast holes in their old site, reload, and blast again, before taking you to their new whiz-bang website, The Republik.
These guys look pretty good. Their website sells their service, or as they would call it; “pulls” their clients in. It’s tongue-in-cheek, serious, informative and there are a few surprises to keep you on the site.
And what website these days would be worth it’s salt without a blog? I can’t think of one and The Republik agrees with me. After blowing their old website to smithereens and then perusing their portfolio, you can keep up with their ideas on advertising by reading their blog, Change Or Die.
So, pick up your weapon of choice and destroy The Republik…consider it your Saturday Diversion.
UPDATE: 4/27/2015 THE DESTROY REPUBLIK LINK WAS TEMPORARY. IT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE WEB
