One of the keys to successful marketing is to do something that makes you stand out from your competitors. If you do something that gets people talking – and hopefully they choose to share the image with others via social media – then you’re far more likely to be successful.

Often, marketers will use humour in their advertising campaigns to grab the audience’s attention and create a memorable brand image. These coffee cups from Starbucks are unexpectedly amusing and would almost certainly encourage people to photograph one another and share the images.
