Remembering the Generic BREADHUNTER Ads Book from 2017?



The Generic BREADHUNTER Ads 2017
Maybe you have asked yourself the last 3 days, why there are these stupid, strange sentences with a Yellow background and a BREADHUNTER Logo posted here on LinkedIn. So, some of you got it, I see on the number of LIKES and others maybe don't get it.
I think, now in 2018 it's a good time to change the generic marketing bullshit, we are riding on in the last 7 years or longer. I am really bored of this, what’s going on here on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and in commercials or print advertising.
It's always the same generic bullshit with stereotypes of business or start-ups or it's a kind of sexual advertising, where the product has nothing to do with the ad itself, or maybe I don't get it, why there are half naked models or kissing couples in a commercial about a new car or mineral water, maybe you got it?!
The generic happy office ads are nice from 2000 - 2010, the start-up and happy millennials dancing and high-five ads are good for 2011 - 2017, but now I think it's time again to concentrate on the craft itself, the real, silent work which makes an impact without a lot of generic marketing. Maybe marketing can support the companies, in showing the real business life, the challenges and the craft, the work, the quality and the difference between quality and just ads bubbles.
The new BREADHUNTER, starting in 2018 will have a very minimalist website and will concentrate on the core competence of headhunting. The handcraft only.
I also believe, that real conversation, parties and real time and real-life experiences are better, than pictures keeping records from what we eat, where we are and when we dance. It's poor just clicking through Instagram pics, sitting alone at home and be a social media voyeur or what do you think? Yes, I know, as a posting person, you get a lot of Dopamine from this action, also if the quality of the content is bad.
I think, the best advertising is to have great quality, handshake contracts and supporting the clients with new ideas and solutions, but for this you also need time to read and bring yourself up to date and get an overview about the market. With profit maximization and job-slavery it's not easy to do so.
The new campaign, I created some days ago, was born also out of self-reflection and market knowledge and out of being bored, seeing all this generic bullshit since years here on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook and seeing the people’s behaviour, acting always the same via Linking or writing comments like: " Wow, this is awesome!"
Yes, it might be "Awesome" to Alzheimer patients, who experience every second new, but for us human beings and thinkers? Maybe only, if we are not thinkers.
Doing this 1 time is ok, doing this in the past 5 years, I have the fear, the person is brain-dead. So, let's create something new and start thinking about creating a new trend in advertising instead of spamming people with the same generic marketing bullshit.
Sometimes there are also great agencies like DMB for example in Vienna or Fuchs & Freude, who do a really creative work during these generic times and maybe there are also some small, unknown agencies around the globe, I don't know yet.
Dissolve is an also great agency to and they are pioneers of these style of ads, I was motivated to do my campaign.

This is a Manifesto of Generic Advertising from the last 5 years, the generic Breadhunter Ad Campaign as Coffee-Table-Art-Book from November 2017. It's not an important book, but it's essential, if you are sick of the generic marketing campaigns everywhere on social media and in print.
This picture book is a inspiration to be more creative in social media ads and marketing as well. We have to stop this generic bullshit and concentrate on real, intelligent ads plus on our work too.  I would love to see my campaign on billboards around the world, :-p, maybe someone will do it...

Baby-Boomer, Generation X und Millennials, der einzige Unterschied ist der Fokus, gespielt haben alle

Guten Morgen, hier nun die letzten Gedankenspiele zu diesem Thema, dann sind wir glaube ich durch damit. Wie die Überschrift schon sagt, unterscheidet diese 3 Gruppen eigentlich nur der Fokus, sowie vielleicht die technischen Möglichkeiten, der Spiel und Spassfaktor war und ist der gleiche, nur eben mit und ohen Social Media. Ich denke, um diese 3 Arten zu verstehen und was sie bewegt, ist es wichtig sich nochmal die jeweiligen Zeiten ins Gedächtnis zu rufen, als diese 3 Gruppen zwischen 20 und 30 waren. Dann wird ganz klar, dass diese Zeiterscheinungen unterschiedliche Ziele hatten, die alle mindestens so viel Spass gemacht haben, wie das Gründen eines Startups, nur erreicht letzteres seit einiger Zeit die größte Beachtung, weil es mit Arbeit zu tun hat und wichtiger erscheint, als vielleicht die Trends und Ziele der Baby-Boomer und Generation X. Die folgenden Kurzcharakteristika, helfen vielleicht etwas beim Verständnis, auch wenn man über dieses Thema auch eine Doktorarbeit schreibe…

The HR Summit 2017 in Vienna in short

It was the 3rd HR Inside Summit in Vienna, which took place at the Imperial Hofburg on 27./28. of September 2017 and it was worth it to be there. This is also a short summary of my personal favorites, a longer summary you can read at Eva Selans HR Blog here, also with news about the HR Award 2017. Sindy Amadei and Viktoria Schmied showed again with their team of Überall-Scene, that they are able to refresh the HR conference landscape in Austria by bringing international speakers and HR insiders together for the 3rd time. It's also like family festival to be there, because you will meet HR people, which share a similar DNA, a DNA which fits to my view of smart HR people. I think there are at the moment 3 HR related conferences per year in Vienna and every event, has his followers. The HR Inside Summit, is the smart middle class event for all business and marketing people too, compared to the 2 other bigger HR related events in Vienna, the Personal Austriaand the We are Developers Con…
