MARKETING JARGONS UNRAVELLED

You don't have to go to Harward Business School or IIM'S to know the meaning of the jargons used by marketeers to befuddle and confound us. Here is an explanation in very simple words. As you laugh, the meanings will become clear to you.ENJOY!



You see a gorgeous girl at a party.
You go up to her and say:"I am very rich. Marry me!"
That's Direct Marketing
One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says:"He's very rich. Marry him."
That's Advertising.
You go up to her and get her telephone number.
The next day you call and say:"Hi, I'm very rich. Marry me."
That's Tele-marketing.
You get up and straighten your tie; you walk up to her and pour her a drink.
You open the door for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her a ride.
You then say:"By the way, I'm very rich "Will you marry me?"
That's Public Relations.
She walks up to you and says:"You are very rich..."
That's Brand Recognition.
You go up to her and say:"I'm rich. Marry me."
She gives you a nice hard slap on your face.
That's Customer Feedback.

As I work on advertisement now I know what to say! The problem is I'm not very rich... lol!
