Jokes from Mom: A Lesson In Marketing.

A Lesson In Marketing

One 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, 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.

Images I love: Arrows.

I've been seeing a lot of arrows in graphic arts and products lately. I like them. Endless possibilities.

I don't own any of these images. I've linked to the original content (where possible), but if you want me to remove them I'd be happy to oblige.

Best scares.

My friend Hannes sent me this link to a compilation of the top 50 Vine scare cams. Some of them are darn right cruel, especially with the children involved, but first time I watched them, I had tears in my eyes!

Thanks Hannes! 

Videos I like.

Vimeo is a constant source of inspiration, especially their staff picks. I like the animated short below, for example, because the quality of the animation somehow has some realism to it while at the same time not. Maybe it's the softness of the light. 

The story is cute too - an agorophobic/OCD man with his pet fish(es) longing for the red-headed neighbor.
