Marketing Humour

The “buzz word” 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, 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 likely could be handsome men in all these houses you're passing. So you climb onto the roof 
of one situated towards the centre and shout at the top of your lungs, 
“I'm fantastic in bed!” That's Junk Mail.

You are at a party, this well-built man walks up to you and gropes your breast
and grabs your “booty”. That's the Governor of California! You like it, but;
20 years later your attorney decides you were offended. That's America.

(Sherrie may not recall that she sent the foregoing to me in March, 2004)
