Definition of Marketing

I’m sure you’ve seen it. It’s one of those things that is passed through email loops of friends. You know, the emails you get that say “fwd” in the header and there’s about a hundred different email addresses before you get to the actual email.

Anyway..it’s Friday, and I thought it was humorous.

The buzz word in today’s business world is MARKETING. People often ask for a simple explanation of “Marketing.”

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’re at a party and see a handsome guy. You get up and 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. You talk him into going home with your friend. That’s a Sales Rep. Your friend can’t satisfy him so she 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 toward the center and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!”. That’s Junk Mail!
