Tactics During the Old Days

Tactics of Marketing « PromoJunkie BlogI wanted to know how the Americans won the hearts of foreign lands back in the days when we did not have social media during war times. My grand father was in the army and he was in charge of public relations with those countries that we were trying to win the hearts and minds of. He told me that they used to drop leaflet printing and other types of marketing things in the native language of the land that they were flying over. They used to fly over Germany and they would drop leaflets that were in German telling the people that they should listen to the Americans and that they were going to be taken care of if they would just give up and not listen to Hitler then they would find that they were going to be in good hands with the Americans.

We knew that they would not over throw Hitler but this got them ready for the time when the Americans were going to get in there and take over all of the land as we knew that we were not going to lose this war. All of the armed services knew that it was going to be good for them and that we were going to win the war. I asked him how he knew this and he told me that they knew that they were the best and they just needed to catch a break in the war and it was going to be a great time for them. I was hoping that they were going to be safe without any casualties but we knew that we were going to have to suffer a few deaths for the greater cause of getting the war in our favor in the very end of it.
