There are countless examples of unethical marketing that occur, but here are a few of my favorite.
In the early 1980s, when the first web browser was released, the idea of a user-friendly web page was revolutionary. Because the browser was free, anyone could create a page without the expense of having a web designer draw it up. The result was a huge step forward for the web—we all now have a web page, and a way to share it with the world. What this all meant was that marketers were free to start doing unethical marketing.
If you’ve ever watched TV, you’ve probably seen an unscrupulous ad that’s been used to sell something. For example, a few years ago, a man tried to sell a water hose that was actually a water gun. In fact, the man had some sort of medical condition and was trying to sell water, not a gun. The water hose might have actually saved people’s lives, but the ad didn’t really care, and it wasn’t very good at it.
I think ethical marketing is the same as unethical marketing in that there are many ways to do it. Whether it be lying, stealing, creating fake products, or doing anything else that is unethical, you can find examples of unethical promotion all over the web.
I know there are some people out there who would be happy to pay someone to create an ad for them, but I don’t see what the big deal is. If you are going to create an ad for your brand it would be a really good idea to come up with something that gets noticed by the right kind of people. I don’t think it’s at all unethical for someone to make an ad for your game.
Well, as it turns out, this is a bad example, because it’s just a marketing game. But the reason it looks like a bad example is because as you can see, the person making the ad is actually making money. This may sound odd, but there is a fairly solid method I use for determining if something is an ethical promotion. I’ve done a lot of this work in my own life and I have an idea of what makes a good example.
So you want to create an ethical example? Then the first thing you need to do is ask yourself, “Is this something I would do?” (this is the ethical part of the question). Then you need to ask yourself, “Was this something I would do in real life?” (the “real life” part of the question). There are some things that are just not ethical that you can use as ethical examples.
The problem with unethical examples is that they’re so easy to find. If you find anything that is unethical you can usually find someone who has done it in the past. So when you’re trying to come up with an ethical example, you have to be really careful. If you are making it up, or if you are simply making something that is unethical it’s very difficult to get it to work.
I’ve seen a few unethical marketing examples. I have a friend who is very successful in his field and he was doing something unethical. In it, he was making a lot of money by advertising on the side of a bridge. Now, if you look at the bridge you can see that it is being used by a very large number of people (in fact, it is the largest bridge in the world).
He actually had to put up with a lot of people who were doing this to him because they were all using it to get closer to him. But it is not unethical because it is the right thing to do. I don’t know what your friend’s job was, but if you have a situation that you consider to be unethical you can do something that is ethically legal. If your company is doing something unethical you can sue them in small claims court.
