And ideally tweet it, re-blog it etc. I want it to go viral and it is funny enough it might.
Speaking of marketing ideas, I read a book - Do it! Marketing - 77 Instant ideas to Boost Sales, Maximize Profits and Crush Your Competition by David Newman.
As I have often said - I love marketing. And even more - I love guerrilla marketing. And I have no attention span so love a book with 77 instant ideas (many of which are guerrilla). Because it is 77 independent ideas, it is a quick and easy read that can be picked up for a minute here and there.
i read to inspire ideas and this book did that so for me it is a good book.
One cute story paraphrased from the book - "Sell like a girl"
What can we learn from girl guides from how they sell cookies.
1 - It is who you know. So as I have always said - nurture a network.
2 - Its not about the product. I can attest to that - since they changed the recipe 20 years ago, I have not particularly liked them...but I buy them.
3 - Its not about price. Girl scout cookies are easily 50+% higher than other cookies.
4 - Its not about need. Who really needs cookies.
5 - Its not about competition. Cookies are available in any grocery store.
6 - "When times are tough and things look quiet, that's the time to push harder than ever. Girl guides know how to be persistent.
They did not mention - it helps to be cute to sell - will have to work on that one.
And a blatant plug for one of my investee companies that does employment pre-screening - Plum. If you can save even one poor fit hire, it is worth screening with a tool like Plum.
