NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 & YEAR OF THE SPLURGE ©2010. Marketing Ploys to enhance your Brand.

Have you heard about NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 (‘NSD’) that has taken Popular Culture by storm? If not, this Introduction is to inform you of its Existence and an exciting Development regarding NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 created and actively promoted by me: ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, a Creative Writer & Public Relations/Media Expert fluent in PRAM: Public Relations - Advertising – Marketing with the Emphasis on Event Creation & Branding via specific Social Media Networks that is based in Chicago, the third largest metropolitan and cosmopolitan city in the USA. 

NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 has been rigorously featured in Fast Company Magazine, MSNBC, Yahoo and (Money & Business Sections) and scores of other Formats (of which a partial list of Thirty (30) highly recognizable names are found at the end of this Introductory letter), all lending Credibility & Status to the Event).   Since 1994, ‘NSD’ has been used extensively to promote such Products as:

Gucci – Pepsi Cola - Dunkin Donuts – LeSportsac - Mastercard – Bloomingdale’s - Bath & Body Works – Herman Miller, Inc. –The Home Depot – Duane Reade –– Hillside Chevrolet – Brittany – Hard Rock Hotel  & Spa/Las Vegas to name only a few. Many more are located on under #NationalSplurgeDay.

Now with 2014 here, to accelerate the Popularity of the HOLIDATE, as ‘America’s Premier Eventologist1, I have further proclaimed that 2014 is the  YEAR OF THE SPLURGE since NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 marks its historic and milestone 20TH Year.

Additionally, the 18TH of each Month (January 18, February 18, March 18, April 18, May 18, June 18 (the official and original NSD), July 18, August 18, September 18, October 18, November & December 18) is accorded its own unique Designation as DOTS:  Days Of The Splurge (consisting of more NEWS via Activities, Advertisements, Blogs, Festivities, etc. generated by Members of ‘CLUB SPLURGE,’ what I call this Marketing Phenomena).  Focusing on the Topic and Deal of the Day that you wish to offer (as it may be something ‘special’ that your Group has recently launched), your Name & Product will be included in my Mailings/Correspondences every day as one of the leading SPLURGES to indulge in during YOTS: Year of The Splurge, promoted by me personally - its Creator.  Marketing doesn’t get better than that when you are working alongside the Originator / Founder of such a monumental Icon. 

While June 18 is officially (the day and date of) the original NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994, 2014 is the 20TH ABC: Anniversary – Birthday – Celebration.

equates to the finest Testimonial that looks dynamic on every Form of Publicity you produce and interview you grant.

NOTE: After the Industrial Age ‘kicked in’ and the Quality of Life improved immensely for ‘most,’ the Ability to SPLURGE arose.  In the past, SPLURGING has always been popular and has consistently obtained Visibility.  Now, as THE HOLIDATE marks and observes its 20TH Year ABC:  Anniversary-Birthday-Celebration in 2014, that traction will be multiplied. As a clever Event, NSD remains a more Cost Effective Way for you to get your Message relayed to a larger body of prospective Buyers, Users, Consumers and gain unlimited Fanfare, while growing your Network.

Q:  Could SPLURGING be any more beneficial than this?

$2,500 per Quarter, prepaid;


$10,000 for 2014, prepaid.

With the endless slew of Media Attention I have received for the Formation/Development/Promotion of NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994, EXCLUSIVITY is the wisest Choice you could make in order to participate in its Spin-Off, YEAR OF THE SPLURGE taking place now through December 31, 2014.  For those of you who opt to become a SPONSOR (instead) of an EXCLUSIVE, that possibility is also on ‘The Board’ at a flat Fee of $5,000, prepaid.  Contact me for details as to what is included in this modified, yet sizzling SPLURGE Package.      

Being represented and promoted by the Founder/Creator/Spokesperson(ality) of NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 and the YEAR OF THE SPLURGE ©2010 is the best Marketing Outreach you could ever make.  Being designated as ‘THE SPLURGE OF CHOICE’ will impact the Future of your Lines and Brands.  Act fast.  This is a FIRST COME – FIRST SERVED OFFER for THE EXCLUSIVE.  This HOLIDATE’s next Grand ABC: Anniversary – Birthday – Celebration happens in 2019 - #25. Having this Entitlement grabs the Attention of any and all Retail, Consumer & Media Groups.  “Attention” you can use in the most creative of manners for the years and decades ahead. 





That’s a given.  ‘The People’ have LIKED it before LIKES became popular on Facebook.  That’s support money cannot buy.

As one of the most TRENDING Topics on Twitter & Facebook, NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 and the YEAR OF THE SPLURGE ©2010 certainly live-up to being a robust YEAR LONG EVENT OF MAXIMIZATION. This HOLIDATE (chock-full of Universal Appeal) is Part & Parcel of 21ST Century Living that People clamor to, spelling out E-X-C-I-T-E-M-E-N-T via each SPLURGE.

I'd positively love to find myself as the Eclectic Photographic splurge of the year, and, if I do as optimistically well at the gallery of choice (in my adopted city), I'd love to consider having you, ASK, consider me for a quarter-year exposure. I had to, wherever possible, engage in some photo-wording pun (here & there) for my Eclectics: This & That.

I'm thrilled that you sent me a 'Think About It' invite. And I shall consider the initial expenditure, if I get the full month (to exhibit my work). In the meantime, I'll just keep enjoying reading your insightful wordSmithin'! :-)
