Baltimore Agency Takes Out Full-Page Ad to Boast Social Skills

If agency success is measured by the number of Facebook likes, then Baltimore-based firm, MGH, has got it on lock–well, at least when it comes to its local ad scene, that is (wait, there’s a Baltimore ad scene?). In an effort to boast about its social media savvy and sell itself to the hometown community (while calling out other local shops in the process), MGH took out a full-page ad this past Monday in the Baltimore Sun. Does having 2,000+ Facebook fans merit such braggadocio? Apparently yes, according to this agency, which claims that it’s “living and breathing modern marketing.” Hey, they once convinced a Maryland town to redo its website, so who are we to argue? See the full ad after the jump.
