Surface Marketing And Branding Is Just Terrible

I just don’t get why Microsoft is spending money on celebrities to market surface. Today Katie Cassidy from Arrow who is great actress posts herself on Instagram using a Surface Studio and you can tell it’s paid post when a few days before she has herself with a picture of herself using a MacBook. Then around Christmas Gal Gadot tweeted she loved her Surface and if you looked you could see was sent by iPad same thing with Opera happened a bunch of years ago.

It the same thing with the NFL at the beginning calling Surface Books ipads.

I just think Microsoft needs better rules and better marketing company for their hardware you would never see this happening with Apple, HP, or Dell. I am not knocking the celebrities they are marking money charging Microsoft. It’s Microsoft’s marketing that needs to review this stuff better.

    <p>Ads are misleading sometimes. Lizard people did not save me any money on car insurance either. </p>
