Conversational without being chatty, clever without being overtly so – simple, effective marketing that clearly differentiates its brand from its competitors. As one of the itinerant Pret wi-fi community, what does strike me is that over half of the others I see also have Macbooks. Not bad when PCs are supposed to take 80%+ of sales. Is it because the Mac is the only possession of most of us poverty-stricken marketing sector consultants? Or is it because PCs are rubbish…?
