Advertising Blunders – The Legacy Way

You may think your company name sounds cool, but a few words of advice:

When comparing two different techniques, "The Old Way" and your method, AKA "The Legacy Way" sound suspiciously similar.  In fact, you may not know this, but the word "legacy" actually implies your method is old, and possibly obsolete.  It certainly does not give one the impression that you are the the innovative, cutting edge, and successful process that you are trying to promote.

It's probably too late to change your company name, but I'd look at hiring a different advertising firm in the future.  They seem to be a bit of a legacy themselves.
