Marketing Analogy

From a platonic female friend.

Lance, Mmmm, got this and thought of you…

If you’d like to know the basics of marketing, perhaps the following examples will help.

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 word of mouth.

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.
