    Understanding Marketing
    You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You approach them and say, "I'm fantastic in bed."

    That's Direct Marketing.

    You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a fabulous girl/guy. You have one of your friends approach them, point at you and say, "She's/He's fantastic in bed."

    That's Advertising.

    You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You approach them to get their 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 fabulous girl/guy. You get up, straighten your clothes, walk up and pour them a drink. You open the door, pick up their bag after it drops, offer them a ride, and then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed."

    That's Public Relations.

    You're at a party and see a fabulous girl/guy. They walk up to you and say, "I hear you're fantastic in bed."

    That's Brand Recognition.

    You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You approach them to get their email address. The next day you email them and write, "Hi, I'm fantastic in bed."

    That's Opt-in email marketing.

    You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You go over and introduce yourself, then introduce them to your best friend. You check back with your friend a week later to find out if they hit it off and start going out. A month later your best friend buys you a round of drinks at the bar.

    That's Affiliate Marketing.

    You drink to many jack and cokes, cover yourself in blinking christmas lights, jump up on the bar and scream to the entire crowd that you are good in bed...

    ...that is spam marketing.

    I don't know if I agree with one of the original definitions. I would see it more as:

    Before the bar opens you go in and talk to the barkeeper and the waitresses, giving each of them a pre-written speil about how good you are in bed. When the crowds arrive, they read the speil to all the good looking women/men while trying to look like they aren't reading from your script. A few women/men look you up later, but the smart ones see right through your ploy.

    That's Public Relations

    How about if before the bar opens, they go to an A.A. meeting instead of going the bar? Are we to assume that sober men aren't sexy lovers or good affiliate managers?

    hmmm...
    My 14 years of intense marketing (succeed or die) agrees vehemently with the first 5-6 (or so) definitions.

    Oh... and I laughed so hard that coke came out my nose.

    Now THAT is *successful marketing*

    Ok, I'm going to give it a shot.

    You've worked months with your affiliate marketing tactics (see above post) to get your best friend a date with the guy/girl of their choice. They are very happy and offer to buy you a round of drinks to say thanks. Instead, your friend's roommate moves in on the new guy/girl and sleeps with them behind your friend's back, AND steals the fresh baked "cookies" your friend had just made. Your friend finds out and is so hurt that you never hear from them again. AND you don't get your round of drinks as promised.

    Your friend's roommate is an "adWHORE".

    You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party. You go over and introduce yourself, then introduce them to your best friend. You check back with your friend a week later to find out if they hit it off and start going out. You find the someone slipped something into your friend's drink and introduced themselves to your friend. Your friend is convinced that the new person is the one who set your friend up with the guy/girl. Your friend buys them a drink.

    That's a parasite. (and that's what we'll name him for the next bit)

    ... Whenever you go out to that bar, the bar person and this 'parasite' work together to make sure any guy/girl you introduce to your friend, appears to have been introduced by this 'parasite'.
    You get no drinks. Your friend buys drinks for 'parasite'. The Bar Person splits the drink with the parasite.

    That's Parasites and (A Popular Affiliate Network).

    I have a problem with that "You see a fabulous girl/guy at a party"

    If I go to a party and see a fabulous girl, I might make my move.

    But, I go to a party and see a fabulous guy, there must be someting wrong with me.

    Just, don't invite me to any of those parties, or get ready to because my 's won't be on those kind of 's

    I don't that way,

    Oops!... I just realized why this topic is so fascinating to me...

    Okay, so I attend this party where everyone is meeting fabulous girls and guys and some fabulous girl sees me and recognizes me as "that guy who wrote a few books on how to pick-up girls" and put them up for sale on the internet, and so she slaps me in front of everyone.

    I end up going home with NO dates, and being publicly humiliated.

    Is that market saturation?

    No, it's not market saturation dustywhite,

    But since you're fascinated about this topic, I have two questions for you:

    1-) R-U a natural born
    or
    2-) R-U a natural born

    Hey, Hey, hey..... WHIT A MINUTE..........

    I just reread your Post again:
    and some fabulous girl sees me and recognizes me as "that guy who wrote a few books on how to pick-up girls" and put them up for sale on the internet, and so she slaps me in front of everyone.
    Holy shit!

    Diosregard this post.

    When I saw dustywhite, I was thinking of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so man..... , I don't like those jokes.

    I was about to ask you for your phone #, but after I reread your post, I better go talk to Neil now, because no matter what, anna_web.jpg is my kind of woman.

    Even if I have to with Sandra`s son for her.


    God dam dustywhite, put a male or female name on your sig.

    Red face whaaaa!
    I can't add a signature! (or p.m., or...)

    I tried last night but I can't find anywhere to add a sig. Perhaps it is because i am still a newbie.

    As to a pic - try this one - she is a friend of mine - and I think you will find ver rather hot:

    ... wait - forget it. I went to her site and she has screwed it all up. She is my covergirl model for my newest book and she has somehow removed ALL of her photos from her website (accidentally I think).

    I have a great shot of her on my site, but I don wanna break the advertising rules here - so I will just have to wait until I can get her to put up her best pics again. (sorry)
