mrBottles.com started as a novice website before the principal site administrator, Steven Libbey, of the iNET cutting edge creative genius web marketing team knew much about websites - he didn’t even work at iNET yet! It was an awkward, confusing thing to a complete technology novice, yet the zeal for collecting antique bottles was inspiration enough to get the ball rolling and to start the organizational process of making a bottle collectors website for Wisconsin antique bottle collectors.
So, you wonder how a hobby website about antique bottles can be considered a success for a monster web development company like iNET? It’s simple. mrBottles.com became a sort of canary in the coal mine, as over time, iNET applied feature after feature into the web site in testing modes. The result is a feature packed web site that utilizes every aspect of iNET Custom Creative Genius, rendering a spectacle that receives international attention as a website at the pinnacle of what a collecting website can be.
Features include a back-end management database that has five different novice technology administrators, (Bottle collectors) adding changing and updating content. Let me tell you, if bottle collectors can handle iNET site management, you can! The site has a custom database image gallery where collectors from all over the world can see spectacular, extremely rare antiques. mrBottles.com has a forum where nearly 100 different collectors regularly log in and show off finds or get opinions from each other or just say hello. The home page has intuitive image navigation for people who don’t know what kind of ancient vessel they have discovered and even has a couple of entertaining flash introductions to the site by our beloved mrBottles himself!

Creative is an intangible. There aren’t many great creatives in radio. In branding there are less. In strategizing there are even less. Most companies have no BRAND. The products and services are amazing, the businesses are often brilliant. There is just nothing for consumers to grab and buckle themselves into. The web sites are also no influence in creating the brand, brand strategy, ad concept or ads.
iNET creative has dozens of mind traps and hooks. Duplicitous meanings and meanings left for the listener to decipher or wonder at. While these traps can get a listener stuck in a thought midstream over two, three, twenty exposures they force acceptance of the message and action. When they discover the hidden hooks listeners feel like insiders, part of the story and part of the brand.
