Books about advertising are, more often than not, supposed to act as sources of inspiration. Copy Paste daringly takes the opposite tack. It is not that the hoards of adverts compiled here are lacking in artistic merit. Au Contraire! The showcased advertisements have been presented at major industry conferences and have won prestigious awards. Another common trait among the campaigns that Copy Paste presents is that all of them are reproductions. Whether that is the result of deliberate plagiarism or unlucky coincidence remains an open question. Copy Paste provides the images and allows the reader to make the judgment call. A visual lesson in originality: selected campaigns possess unique hashtags that allow readers to interact with Joe la Pompe’s extensive research, cast their opinion online, and make their own judgements. Copy Paste, Joe la Pompe’s third book, campaigns for more creativity. Through over six hundred ad campaigns featuring under three hundred original concepts, the volume begs the question: coincidence, phenomenon, or shameless plagiarism? To decide, you will have to read it – at least twice.

Take a journey with Jack as he is taught the twelve magic beans by the wise old man... He then offered Jack a trade: the cow for some magic beans. He explained that these magic beans would give Jack the knowledge and understanding he needed to become as rich as him. He said, “Boy, I can show you how to take this fine piece to the market and get back the business the large factory took from your family—and so much more. In fact, someday you will become so rich that you will never have to work again. Just like me, you can sit under this lovely old tree and enjoy the hum of the market making you money without even having to step a foot inside it.” “No capital, struggling with debt, lack of staff, time and sales— sound familiar? That was us. A radical change of thinking led to explosive growth and going global. We call it Magic Beans.” ~ Terrence Bull

...there was an unwavering belief in the goodness of milk and orange juice. Soda energized and pleased palates without suspicion. THEN CAME A RECKONING... BETTER FOR YOU examines the rise of a global healthy drinks market and presents case histories of entrepreneurs who dared to create “better for you” beverages… enduring American brands and burgeoning New Zealand lifestyle drinks, Phoenix Organic, Karma Cola, Chia Sisters, Aotea Native Tonics & King of Kiwi. How did Phoenix Organic, an iconic Kiwi brand, come to be foreign-owned? How is Karma Cola going head-to-head with Big Soda? How does leadership from Chia Sisters founders dismantle Tall Poppy culture? Why did a successful Māori-led drink brand choose to forgo export? Included in BETTER FOR YOU is a “behind the scenes” account of Kiwi, Glenn Elliott, who travels to the USA to “give it a go” with his artisanal kiwifruit drink brand. Much more than a business book, BETTER FOR YOU, shows connections between products and consumers, Americans and Kiwis, and posits how commerce can relate to leading authentic, healthy, and responsible lives.
