Other than the great hilarity of the Charmin Sit or Squat app, which can be downloaded on for either iPhone or Android through iTunes, let’s give a quick summary: an app that helps you find a clean, public restroom when out and about is both functional, practical, interactive- folks send in their ratings to the app, labeling them either “sit” worthy or “squat” worthy.

lowes-fix-in-six-best-use-of-vineSo I came across this smarty pants marketing campaign because I was looking for a way to keep those dang persistent squirrels who have taken over my yard from eating all the bird food in my bird feeder. Those poor sparrows did not stand a chance, and I always felt so sorry for them. Squirrels are persistent little buggers. Then I did a Google search for ‘how to keep squirrels out of a bird feeder and came across this Lowe’s Vine campaign- the #lowesfixinsix. A Monday Marketing Masters dream come true.

The Lowes Fix In Six- the best use of Vine I’ve seen to date, has creatively made use of Vine- those 6 second videos we discussed in Monday Marketing Masters #4 on airbandb, and without breaking the ad budget, created an innovative, educational marketing campaign that fixes many of their customer’s pain points and household problems- many of which we didn’t even realize we had.
