In the broadcasting business, sometime we must resort to surefire tricks, cheap ploys, and shameless stunts to drive up our numbers. This is one of those times…
Welcome to Guerilla Marketing 101. Class is in session.
This is Exhibit “A”…Danica Patrick. She is in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Every depraved guy and motor sports fan is Googling her name and “Swimsuit” as we speak. Using these words and that photo in this blog…guarantee me hits.
Exhibit “B”…Brett Fav-ruh. He has yet again announced his retirement. By adding the tag “Brett Favre” or “Brett Favre Retirement” to this blog, I guarantee web hits…and perhaps even a mention by John Madden next season: “Now here’s a blog that shows the picture of Brett Favre on his ass and BOOM!”
And finally, Exhibit “C”: B. Hussein Obama. Chief Executive of the United States of Cool. I put his name, and the word “Stimulus” into the blog, and voila! And, by using the word “stimulus”, I may get the random porn afficionado…who probably won’t make it past the Danica Patrick picture.
So, what have we learned? Huh? You weren’t paying attention? Oh…the Danica photo again. My apologies…continue your ogling, tell your friends, and clear your cookies before visiting my blog each time… Gotta have an accurate count!
