Marketing 101 for the women

From an email a friend forwarded to me:

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 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 of these houses that you’re passing. You climb onto the roof of one of the houses and shout, at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!”

— That’s Spam.

  • So what’s multilevel marketing 🙂

  • How about the email from the lawyer in Nigeria who is representing the estate of a rich relative of yours who has died with millions of dollars in a bank account and who told the lawyer just before he died that you were good in bed…

  • When the guy you sleep with makes out with all your other friends the following week…

    That’s Multi-Level Marketing.

  • In case you’re interested in the attribution, that’s from Iconocast, from about a year ago. As with most forwarded emails, it’t changed and been added onto since then.

    They also had a couple of followups from readers the next week.

    My favorite… “You call the girl the next day and tell her you have syphilis. That’s Viral Marketing.”
