    Short Course in Marketing

    Many people are confused about the meaning of the word "Marketing".
    Perhaps the following analogies will help clear it up:

    1. I see a handsome guy at a party. I go up to him and say, "I'm
    fantastic in bed."

    That's Direct Marketing.

    2. I'm at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One
    of my friends goes up to him and, pointing at me, says, "My friend's
    fantastic in bed."

    That's Advertising.

    3. I see a handsome guy at a party. I go up to him and get his
    telephone number. The next day I call and say,"Hi, I'm fantastic in

    That's Telemarketing.

    4. I'm at a party and see a handsome guy. I get up, smooth my hair,
    walk up to him and pour him a drink. I smile at him and say "May I?",
    reach up to straighten his tie brushing lightly against his arm, and then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed."

    That's Public Relations.

    5. I'm at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to me and says,
    "I hear you're fantastic in bed."

    That's Brand Recognition.

    6. I'm at a party and see a handsome guy. I talk him into going home
    with my friend.

    That's a Sales Rep.

    7. My friend can't satisfy him so he calls me.

    That's Tech Support.

    8. I'm on my way to a party when I realize that there could be
    handsome men in ALL the houses I'm passing. So I climb onto the roof
    of one situated in the middle of the neighborhood and shout at the top
    of my lungs,
    "I'm fantastic in bed!"

    That's Spam
