I was in charge of getting all of the promotional materials for the new advertising campaign.
It was the first time that my boss ever trusted me with such a big job and I really wanted to do well.
I decided to go with a lesser-known company that was a little bit cheaper. They had good reviews online, but they didn’t have a ton of reviews. When the advertising and promotional materials arrived, my boss was furious. Everything for the campaign looked terrible. The banners and the flyers all looked bad. The colors were completely wrong. The colors for our marijuana dispensary are purple and gold, to match the local football team. The colors on the banner didn’t even remotely resemble purple or bold. It was more like light pink and gray. When my boss saw the materials, she called me at home to complain. She told me to come to the marijuana dispensary if I wanted to keep my job. I knew she was serious. I contacted my contact person at the business office and I told her all about the mix-up and how bad everything looked. She asked me to send a few pictures and she promised to replace everything as soon as possible. Thank goodness the stuff arrived two days later on overnight priority shipping. The new items looked much better. It almost looked as if they sent us the rough draft or first copy of the entire project. They never charged me anything extra to remake the new items so it must have been their fault.
