The Hook to Make 'Em Look

It All Started with a Big Black Magic Marker

Vision Media Marketplace has been creating attention-grabbing, display advertising in the direct marketing space since 1991. At that time, it wasn’t just display advertising. Those who know us, remember it was called Guaranteed Response Advertising. Our full-color pages ran in all the high-profile business newspapers, magazines, and card decks month after month and created record-breaking times for a lot of people.

Vision Media started out as a one man show. Carl Humphrey, armed with his big black marker, innovated the term

Guaranteed Response Advertising

Starting out with only a few hundred dollars, no sales team, nor computer, Carl created advertising pieces in ways that provided direct marketers a massive number of leads.

Okay Truth...
These days, Vision Media has moved on to lead generation, social media, and other forms of online advertising. In fact, we’ve re-branded ourselves. We are now V2. Version 2 of Vision Media still stays true to Carl’s original vision (get it?) and that was to take an already excellent service and make it so beneficial, it was irresistible.

No longer the 1-man show, Carl still has his black marker, and is now a computer maestro great with a computer.  He’s also surrounded himself with our team of witty writers, daring developers, delightful designers, savvy social media experts, and attentive account managers. Everything with V2 is different, except our core, the things that matter most. You know the saying, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

V2 is Vision Media, only better.

Shall We Take A Trip Through Time?

Below is a tiny handful of some old Vision Media magazine ads. Classic! For those of us newer to Vision Media, we don’t remember a lot of the ads. Do any of them look familiar to you?

Warning: A bit of blurriness and graininess ahead

The good news is, it’s not your eyes that are old and blurry. It’s the ads that are old and blurry.

Come back often, more added each month. You can also sign up to get updates each time we ad new, (old) ads
