I’m going to make a huge guess that 95% of my readers watched the Simpsons.
Of that 95% I’d say 75% will remember exactly what this is…….
Im no marketing Guru but I have been employed in several jobs, in the past, to generate business and make money. Without sounding arrogant I grew to be quite bloody good at it too.
My basic method was, what I called, a shotgun approach but could have also been called the trawling approach come to think of it.
I cast out a big net via email telling everyone within my target customer base all about the various products I was promoting AND I’d also let them know that even better things on the horizon. People are curious by nature so the last point grabbed people’s attention and suddenly the clients were approaching me and asking for early samples. Now, of course, it didn’t always translate into 100% hit ratio BUT I’d say it was a 70-80% hit ratio after follow up calls and presentations etc but the key was letting them know something cool was coming. In other words GABBO is coming.
So what’s your bloody point you sorry excuse for a hobbyist I hear you bellow?
Well I’m hoping the title of this post will have a similar effect and get you all wondering and guessing what IRO is up to? Haha. Or it may have just annoyed you and left you wondering why you even bother following my blog ahahaha. Either way tickles me to be honest.
Speaking of tickling, If you have NetFlix, or you could probably find it on YouTube, look up a Doco called “Tickled” bloody weird. I’m only half way through it and I’m so confused haha.
So, see what I did there? I lured you in with the title, gave you nothing and then left you with some bizarre show to look up.
And if you’re still reading I’ll hibe you this thought for the day to ponder too.
I lost my arm in the army
I lost my leg in the navy
I lost my penis in a butchers shop
and found it in my gravy
