Here Is A Great Example Of An Outstanding & Innovative Media Release That Is Part Of The Marketing Campaign For IPLCA   

 

 

Spring is here and it’s a time to celebrate the tremendous benefits that healthy lawns provide to our families, communities and the environment. 

 

Unfortunately, the April 1st, 2018, article « Campaign seeks to reduce lawn chemical use » is likely to leave readers WOEFULLY MIS-INFORMED AND UNNECESSARILY DISTRESSED about the safety of lawn care products. 

 

The truth is, PESTICIDES AND OTHER LAWN CARE TREATMENTS ARE ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY LAWNS AND GREEN SPACES    and their value is MUCH GREATER THAN COSMETIC. 

 

Proper application [ of pesticides ] 

 

   wards off disease-carrying insects, 

 

   prevents uncontrolled weeds from causing debilitating allergy attacks, and 

 

   protects native plants from being killed by invasive species. 

 

HEALTHY LAWNS AND GREEN SPACES also provide other essential benefits   

 

   delivering oxygen, 

 

   capturing pollution, and 

 

   protecting against soil erosion and water run-off. 

 

Of course, responsible application of lawn care products used in residential and public spaces is crucial. 

 

That’s why Lawn Care Professionals UNDERGO RIGOROUS TRAINING to determine what products, if any, are appropriate for lawns and turfgrass on a case by case basis. 

 

These products are thoroughly evaluated by the Environmental Protection Agency [ EPA ] for their potential health and safety risks to humans, wildlife and water systems before they are made available for consumer or commercial use. 

 

Further, Lawn Care Professionals are trained to use all the tools in their toolbox    including practices such as soil aeration and over-seeding    to balance the need for lawn care products. 

 

Rest assured, we    professionals who apply lawn care products    breathe the same air, drink the same water and raise our children in this same community. 

 

WE ALL WANT OUR ENVIRONMENT TO CONTINUE TO THRIVE.

Negative Waves    Dr Green’s Failed Marketing Campaign

 

Description Of Dr Green

 

 

Dr Green is a lawn care business that operates in Dallas, Chicago, Alberta, and Ontario. 

 

 

 

Here Is An Example Of Dr Green’s Failed Marketing Campaign   

 

 

 

Negative Waves    Dr Green’s Failed Marketing Campaign

 

Shaming, Coercion, & Intimidation

 

 

Dr Green’s Marketing Campaign For

Shaming & Coercing Potential Customers &

Neighbours Into Buying Lawn Care Services

 

 

They say any publicity is good publicity, but that may only happen if your business knows how to handle bad press and make the best of it. 

 

Recently, a lawn care company [ named Dr Green ] in Richardson, Texas ( near Fort Worth ), placed an INSULTING SIGN in the yard of one of its customer’s neighbours. 

 

[  The reason for Dr Green’s MARKETING CAMPAIGN, and its use of INSULTING SIGNS, was to SHAME, COERCE, AND INTIMIDATE neighbours and potential customers into buying its lawn care services.  Can these guys be trusted ?!?!  See photo below.  ]

 

The neighbour, Mr Robert Stricker, posted a photo on Reddit of the INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN and said he felt the company was trying to shame him [ and coerce him ] for his lawn’s poor quality. 

 

The INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN itself said   

 

Your lawn was not treated

today, your neighbour’s was. 

 

It encouraged people to call a 1-800 number for Dr Green. 

 

[  See photo below. 

 

While Mr Stricker is aware of his lawn’s ugly duckling status, he did not appreciate a lawn care company pointing it out. 

 

According to [ the shamed and coerced ] Mr Stricker on WFAA 8 ABC   

 

I thought, what’s so bad about my lawn ?!?! 

 

It’s not the prettiest, but it felt like they were trying to shame me. 

 

Kind of like, look how much nicer your neighbour’s lawn looks now. 

 

The post of the INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN on Reddit soon attracted enough attention, causing it TO GO VIRAL. 

 

There were varying responses to the INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN and suggestions on how Mr Stricker should retaliate.

Negative Waves    Dr Green’s Failed Marketing Campaign

 

Funny-Man Owner

 

 

The post of the INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN on Reddit drew much attention, with over a thousand posted responses to the FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN. 

 

According to FUNNY-MAN and Dr Green’s owner Ryan Van Hasstrecht in the Washington Post   

 

I thought the posts [ on Reddit ] were actually quite FUNNY, to be honest. 

 

What’s amazing about this story and how viral it’s gone is we were literally only doing this for about TWO DAYS. 

 

[  Two days ?!?!  Really ?!?!  It is highly unlikely that this MARKETING CAMPAIGN was only intended for two days.  These INSULTING SIGNS were professionally designed and printed in the hundreds, and probably thousands.  More lies and deception from Dr Green.  Can these guys be trusted ?!?!   ] 

 

Dr Green’s MARKETING CAMPAIGN demanded that its employees place the INSULTING SIGNS in the yards of ALL the neighbours, not just those that looked uncared for. 

 

According to FUNNY-MAN Ryan Van Hasstrecht in the Washington Post   

 

We weren’t trying to shame anybody.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

Just trying to do something a little bit creative    [ ?!?! ] 

 

Certainly, I’m not thinking this was a great idea, necessarily. 

 

Ironically, after Dr Green ended its FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN, BUSINESS [ supposedly ] INCREASED.  [ ?!?! ] 

 

[  Business increased ?!?!  Really ?!?!  More lies and deception from Dr Green ?!?!  The public may be unaware that Ryan Van Hasstrecht and Dr Green conspired with LandsCAPE Ontario trade association to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the province of Ontario.  Can these guys be trusted ?!?!  Explore the link below.  ]

[  Moreover, there appears to be no end of complaints against Dr Green.  Business increased ?!?!  Really ?!?!  More lies and deception from Dr Green ?!?!  Can these guys be trusted ?!?!  Explore the links below for reviews and photos from Fort Worth, Texas.  ]

Shaming Back

 

 

Mr Stricker says he had no desire to harm Dr Green. 

 

He simply wanted to SHAME BACK the company as he felt it SHAMED him. 

 

He does say the INSULTING DR GREEN SIGN made him more conscious of the appearance of his lawn. 

 

According to [ the shamed and coerced ] Mr Stricker on WFAA 8 ABC   

 

You kind of think of the internet as yelling into the wind. 

 

You do it sometimes and nothing really ever comes of it. 

 

Definitely never expected any actual change in policy or anything like that.

Questions About Public Relations Nightmare

 

 

Dr Green’s INSULTING SIGNS are examples of a FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN. 

 

Dr Green tried to attract potential customers’ attention by SHAMING, COERCION, and INTIMIDATION. 

 

Dr Green’s FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN can only be portrayed in a negative light [ with NEGATIVE WAVES ]. 

 

IT WAS A PUBLIC RELATIONS NIGHTMARE. 

 

Here are some of the questions Dr Green needed to ask before launching its FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN   

 

   Is Dr Green proud of this FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN ?!?! 

 

   Did Dr Green respond well to its customers in the Washington Post ?!?! 

 

   How will people who have never heard about Dr Green perceive this FAILED MARKETING CAMPAIGN ?!?! 

 

   Does this MARKETING FAILURE accurately represent the Dr Green business ?!?!
