No blog for absolutely ages – manic times!
I’ve been thinking, debating, uumming and aarrgghhing about marketing my business – its a very complex affair apparently.
Not sure where this came from – I got it from Claire Ferrari.
“Marketing. However, people often ask for a simple explanation of Marketing. Well here it is:-
You were 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 freinds and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and poinits to 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 and straighten his tie, brushing lightly up against his arm and then say, by the way I’m fantastic in bed. That’s public relations.
You’re at a party and you 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.
You’re friend calls you later. That’s Tech Support
You’re on your way to a party when you realise there could be some handsome men in all of these houses you’re passing. So you climb up onto the roof of the one situated towards the centre and shout at the top of your voice I’m fantastic in bed. That’s Junk Mail.”
