Adrants Accolades

In its 2004 Book of Tens, Ad Age named Adrants the number one "Website You Should Bookmark." Topping Gawker, Drudge, even Google News, we applaud Ad Age's recognition of our unique approach to marketing and advertising news coverage.

Adrants was recently named best individual weblog on general marketing and advertising topics by industry publisher MarketingSherpa. The survey was conducted during the month of May with more than 800 MarketingSherpa readers examining and voting on 29 Blogs in six categories.

"If your interest is advertising, why wait weeks for a worthwhile AP story when you can get it daily - and better - from Adrants?"

- George Simpson, MediaPost


"Adrants has has attained a certain level of "hip-ness". Terrific combination of dry humor and pertinent information. Makes for a great daily read."

- Richard J. Botto, CEO/Publisher, Razor Magazine


"Why would you passively absorb the ubiquitous inanity known as advertising when you could blog about it? Steve Hall pulls together the questionable, the absurd, the new and the noteworthy found floating around in the commercial media and shares the love over at Adrants. For someone who's in the business, he ain't afraid to pull his punches."

- Veer


"...a hip, cutting-edge, slightly salacious view of marketing that emphasizes viral marketing and other alternatives."

- Terry Heaton, Donata Communications


On the Adrants Network:

"I have to admit that the level of conversation and discourse has blown me away. In this day and age, with so much clutter and self-serving crap, Adrants is one of the most refreshing and stimulating resources to tap into. There are many reasons for this...give Adrants a whirl; you won't regret it."

- Joe Jaffee, Consultant and author of iMediaConnection's Jaffe Juice


"One of the most comprehensive advertising blogs I've come across is Steve Hall's Adrants page. Hall maintains a regularly updated, well-designed site. On the left side of his blog you'll find commentary on recent advertising-related news stories, while in the right-hand column, Hall has compiled an extensive list of links to advertising related news sites, industry resources, and other advertising bloggers."

- Shoot Online


Adrants by Steve Hall is beloved by trendwatchers

- Jeff Jarvis


"Let me tell you, it rocks!"

- Bitter from The Bitch Girls


"I gotta tell you that you're about the best commentator on the biz that I know -- even better than Stuart Elliott, who is the top advertising writer in my view."

- Mark Smyka, Canadian Advertising Journalist


"It's not porn - I'm boning up on the ad industry!"

- David Berkowitz, eMarketer


"What’s nice about adrants is the fact that most entries are short, crisp and devoid of advertising jargon - so even a laymanperson can enjoy the post. And most posts are accompanied by visual images which make the task of comprehension so much easier. The design is also very neat and uncluttered which is pretty rare in today’s blogosphere..."

- Jivha - The Tongue


Adrants has also been noted, in good company we might add, as the genesis of other weblogs:

"We've been inspired by the likes of Mediabistro, Gawker, Adrants, Us Weekly, W, Romensko and Salon."

- Jossip, a journalistic gossip site


"There's a wicked glee in a lot of the reviewed ads, a slightly subversive edge to their admonishments."

- Barry Ritholtz, Chief Market Strategist for Maxim Group


"The subversive Adrants, which has been around for a while but is now in blog format, is your go-to blog for commentary on the "brilliance and idiocy of the media and advertising industry." Owner Steve Hall covers ad campaigns, insider industry news and emerging trends (product placement, wireless advertising, etc.) in the form of several daily posts delivered with "wit, humor and sarcasm." Should a daily blog visit become too taxing for your little fingers, you can have the entries emailed to you. A frequent check-in is a must, however, as Steve often gets the dirt from his sources via Instant Messenger or email and posts it right away, so he has been known to scoop even the daily news sites. BTW, you will also find an incredible list of recommended websites and blogs on the subjects of advertising and media at this site, among which you will find Web Digest For Marketers. Clearly, the man has good taste."

-Larry Chase - Web Digest for Marketers


"Thought so. That's how you stay so cool.
