I don’t know if this story submission feature works, but I found this interesting.
Maybe someone can help me with this..
Is it legit for a marketer to pose as a buyer of their own product on the evening news without disclosing that they are a marketer?
I remember seeing a news story a while back about Chinese buyers viewing Whiterock from a helicopter and it turned out they were all local real estate agents.
Now we have this story:
Chinese visitors are arriving in B.C. just in time to ring in the Year of the Snake – and Vancouver condo developers are getting a boost because of it.
Many developers know that catering to offshore buyers during Chinese New Year is crucial for sales.
Pretty standard sort of story around these parts, but as one commenter here points out it would appear that one of the buyers in that story is a condo marketer.
