Vote for the next International Brand Master

American Idol fever has hit the nation!  New judges, new contestants, and new voices will entertain America for the next few months.

You know, I’ve always thought it would be a good idea for them to bring back a past winner as a judge.  Who knows what it takes to be an “American Idol” better than Carrie Underwood?

But the judges can get the contestants only so far in this competition, because as we all know the key to Idol is that YOU will be able to vote for the winner.  The last audition city will be aired this week and then those darling contestants will be off to Hollywood.  Are your finger’s itching to call in and vote?  You’ll have to wait a few more weeks.

But until then…

Why not vote for the next International Brand Master brought to you by the Educational Marketing Group?

It’s kind of like American Idol…

You have your esteemed panel of judges, of which I was humbled to be apart of, who selected from a list of 8 smart, experienced, creative, and talented nominees only 3 finalists.
—Side note, EMG included last year’s Brand Master Andrew Careaga as a judge.  Smart move.  Who knows what it takes to be a Brand Master better than Andrew?  (Did I just compare Andrew Careaga to Carrie Underwood… I think so.)

The 3 finalists: John Lichtenberg, Teri Lucie Thompson, and Larry Hincker have “made it to hollywood” and now America gets to vote.  (Hint hint: That means YOU!)

You can vote online and via twitter as many times as you want (but only once per day).  No pesky 1.866 numbers here!

Voting ends at 12:00 a.m. EST (midnight) on Friday February 18, 2011 and the winner will be announced Tuesday February 22, 2011.

    I’ve always thought of myself as more of a Kelly Clarkson, but I appreciate the sentiment! 😉

    Mallory – Andrew Careaga is playing Kelly Clarkson in the next American Idol movie 🙂 I can’t say it enough, thank you for volunteering your time and marketing expertise as a judge for the International Brand Master award. Also thank you for putting out the word for fellow higher education marketing colleagues to vote American Idol style.

    It was a pleasure being a fellow judge with you and meeting you over the phone. I hope we can work together again soon and meet in person. Very much appreciated!
