A hilarious blog post about marketing

While researching one of my articles today, I came across this blog posting which I thought was absolutely hilarious and so I will point you in the direction of the site where i found it here: http://www.volcanicmarketing.com/blog/2008/03/06/what-is-marketing/

And repeat it in full here:

Party The buzzword in today’s business world is MARKETING. However, people often ask for a simple explanation of “Marketing.” Well, here it is:

  • You’re a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, “I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Direct Marketing.
  • You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and pointing at you says, “She’s fantastic in bed.” That’s Advertising.
  • You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say, “Hi, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Telemarketing.
  • You see a guy at a party, you straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, “May I?” and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, “By the way, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Public Relations.
  • You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, “I hear you’re fantastic in bed.” That’s Brand Recognition.
  • You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend. That’s a Sales Rep.
  • Your friend can’t satisfy him so he calls you. That’s Tech Support.
  • You’re on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome men in all these houses you’re passing. So you climb onto the roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!” That’s Junk Mail.

  1. I found lots of intresting things here. Thanks!
    And I bookmark Your site Now.

  2. Certainly tickled my funny bone. Sometimes I think we marketing types take ourselves too seriously. Great to see an exception to the rule. We try to keep things light at e-clipsblog too.

  3. I agree. Besides, I’ve found atleast that being successful in marketing is largely based around being able to ignore the nay sayers. I think a big part of that is finding humor in what you do.

  4. Ew. Ironically enough, I think your post about “marketing” snagged a spambot.
