Time to get busy if you’re planning to take a 3-day weekend for the 4th of July – but not until you nibble on this week’s edition of Market it Write’s Monday Madeleines, so catch your breath, see what’s going on and let us know what you think!
24/7 Wall St. Ten Brands That Will Disappear In 2012
Wow! Say it ain’t so. There’s some pretty big names on this list from 24/7 Wall Street. They predicted some correctly in last year’s top ten list, so it can’t be completely off base. Take a look and comment here if you agree or disagree with their assessments. Thanks to @BrettGreene via @hipchameleon for calling this to our attention.
Website Made Entirely of Chocolate
Talk about creative marketing campaigns! Portuguese brewer Sagres wanted a unique way to promote their new Chocolate Stout on the web. So they hired world renowned chocolatier Victor Nunes to sculpt all of the site’s design elements out of chocolate. The post includes a video about how Nunes did it and some of the unusual offers site visitors have been taking the company up on. This yummy treat came our way via @2cre8 (Kathy Meyer).

Free Hugs Campaign
Maybe you’ve already seen it (some 69 million + have), but it’s worth watching again. What the world needs now is a free hug (and some good music, too). So go ahead, indulge. Thanks (and hugs) to our friends at @adamsconsulting for bringing this to our attention.
