Blockbuster says stores merely 'moving' online

By DOREEN HEMLOCK - Sun Sentinel




Blockbuster's "moving" signs could confuse some customers and backfire against the company, said two public relations experts.
For example, the sign showing a conventional mover's truck could mislead some customers to think the store is re-opening in another mall, said Don Silver of Boardroom Communications in Plantation, Fla. Blockbuster might communicate more clearly, he said, if its artwork of the mover's truck had wings to show the business flying into cyber-space, maybe with a promotional code to enter online for a free rental.
"Implementation can be everything," Silver said. "You don't want to mislead people. And Blockbuster has plenty of space at its stores to tell its story clearly. It's not a vending machine."
Companies must be transparent now, because consumers check the Internet for information - such as Blockbuster's bankruptcy, its sale to Dish Network and its store closings, said Virginia M. Sheridan of M. Silver Associates, with offices in Fort Lauderdale and New York.
"It seems they didn't execute properly," said Sheridan. "And today, you just can't do that. People don't like to feel that they are being tricked or being fooled."

And here I thought Blockbuster PR had a lock on being clueless- all of a sudden this "Public Relations Expert" guy comes along and says something like that...

I think that PR guy must know the judge who looked over the Ch 11 case for Blockbuster. They could keep the picture of the truck and put some wings on it with the slogan: We are flying to www.blockbuster.com.

I guess Dish reads these forums. I believe we were making "moving sale" jokes a couple of months ago.

"We are Moving" sign is a joke....I asked my local BBI where they were moving and they said a BBI 15 miles from here, and I told them that's not moving, they have been open longer than you. Just say this location is closing....thats what they used to put up.
