Reuters & Brandweek & Baby Boomers

Freelancer Linda Stern writes about financial matters for Reuters. She made me chuckle today when I read this juicy aside in her latest article, How to ride that aging baby-boomer wave:
"…and, of course, Ameriprise Financial (AMP), the financial services company behind those embarrassingly annoying (or is it annoyingly embarrassing?) '60s nostalgia ads."
Brandweek has a guest piece about advertising to Baby Boomers. I agree with about two, maybe three of the eleven suggestions — and I bet you can guess that the first suggestion isn't one of them. Circle 2, 8 & 10 — although I've already made these points in my book and this blog.
