We have a fun theme for you this week: money, money, money, and the US of A! Nobody likes a salesman, not even salesmen, but just how far will the advertising world go to get the consumer to swoon?

The numbers are finally in, and it turns out that social media is not a trend, and if you want to be a successful company you had better jump on board. Speaking of social media, if you haven’t noticed all the hoppin’ mommy blogs out there, you’re about to find out just why they’re so fabulous. Finally, what do Americans love about America? More importantly, what do they hate?
