Nuss & Associates, Inc. is the premiere advertising agency Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model reality show phones when Barefeet Shoes sponsors their latest regional casting call for America's Next Top Model.

Let's hear it for the boys! For 2013, they're letting the boys join the fun as competitors.

Yes, I did it! I'm not ashamed.
I took my cues for today's exciting iCafe Woman Moderne text-webisode from the advertising windfall campaign that produced $23.3 billion pounds in milk sales in the mid-nineties. Indeed, that's a lot of milk.
This clever campaign also increased advertising expenditures to $37.9 million from 1994 to 1995 after the first "Got Milk" commercial aired in October 29, 1993. Not too shabby... huh?
Fast forward to April 2013... Kiki, here... and as always... I wish you many miracles and blessings!

1. (laughing) Isn't that the truth. It's delicious! Tell us a little about your background. What led you to the advertising industry?
I was a Communications major at Cabrini College in Radnor, PA. My initial goal was to work on-air in either broadcast television or radio. However, I hadn't anticipated how competitive the industry was. To get my "foot in the door," I agreed to work in Sales at WMMR Radio.
Very smart move! That's where I was first exposed to advertising and decided that I really enjoyed it. I was always a "numbers' person" and enjoyed the research/ratings angle of the business.

So you got bit by the media buying bug there.
That's right. I then moved on to my first job at an advertising agency and went into Media Buying, where a good part of your day is spent working with numbers -- negotiating rates, determining cost efficiency of different programming and different stations, etc.
I was happy to have been able to combine the fun and glamour of working in television and radio with my mathematical talent.
I feel that my primary talent is negotiating, which is the core of what I do, but I am also heavily involved in all the creative work that goes through my agency. I write and direct commercials. However, when certain projects are above my level of expertise, I don't hesitate to utilize outside sources to complete any project on which I might be working.

Bobbie Nuss How do I relax? It's probably not surprising to hear that I love flea marketing. Afterall, the major portion of my job involves rate negotiations. That makes me a natural for the flea market scene!
