"Unfortunately for the U.S., ads are not a panacea for changing perceptions of America. Branding U.S. foreign relations and diplomacy is ineffective at best. The effort would be better served and managed with public relations and integrated political/diplomatic marketing."
Principal/Classic Communications/New York, NY
"For advertising to work there has to be an underlying belief that the source is credible. Advertising overseas from the U.S. State Department? Please."
