I saw this on my Linkedin network and it was too good not to share. Its not the best grammar but I found it to be a rather amusing explanation of marketing.
“1). You see gorgeous girl in party, you go to her & say I am rich, marry me. – that’s Direct Marketing. 2). You attend party & your friend goes to a girl , pointing at you tells her, he is very rich, marry him. – that’s Advertising 3). Girl walks to you & says u are rich, can u marry me? – that’s Brand Recognition. 4). You say I’m very rich marry me & she slaps u. – that’s Customer Feedback. 5). You say I’m very rich marry me & she introduces you to her husband. – That’s Demand & Supply Gap. 6). Before you say I’m rich, marry me, your wife arrives. – that’s Restriction from Entering New Markets.”
I’m out like supply & demand.
