Propeller Marketing: We’re ethical, respectful and honest (see our other pages for the content we’ve lifted from the web)

Dr Mumbo was very impressed by the high ethical standards of the Port Melbourne promotional firm Propeller Marketing.  

Propeller MarketingHe knows Propeller is ethical because it says so on its website, which he won’t be linking to for reasons that will become clear in a moment.

Propeller has even got a sustainable business policy (or “sustainable bus policy” as they call it on their website – which does make Dr Mumbo think of the 333 from Bondi).

Propeller Marketing promises: “We will respect everyone we deal with, and work to earn the respect of our clients and peers.”

And the marketing company adds: “We will always take full responsibility for our actions, promises and performance.”

And there’s more from Propeller: “We will always do what we say we’ll do and can be relied upon to act with honesty and integrity.”

So Dr Mumbo was wondering three things: 1) What level of respect Propeller Marketing was showing when it cut and pasted Mumbrella’s (and by the looks of it other) content onto its site without permission; 2) Whether Propeller will take full responsibility for its actions as promised; and 3) which category of integrity lifting other people’s content comes under?

It’ll be interesting to find out.

(By the way, Dr Mumbo is aware there is also a reputable agency in St Kilda called Propeller PR. Propeller Marketing is nothing to do with them.)

(Update September 9: After our emails went unanswered we rang the boss of the agency. Unless he was a very good actor he was genuinely unaware that somebody within his company had done this. The offending article was removed within a few hours.)
