Getting to know you better.

THIS POST IS INSPIRED FROM A SIMILAR POST I READ AT OLIVIER BLANCHARD’S BLOG

The infamous James Lipton, host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio” BRAVO television program, asks his guests a few questions at the end of the show. If he were to interview a Marketing or Business professional, here how what he’d probably ask.

Now being a Marketing person myself, if I were to answer Mr.Lipton’s questions, this is how I would go:

What is your favorite marketing/business
–  Profit

What is your least favorite marketing/business word?
–  Bottleneck / Impossible

What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally about marketing/business?
–  Ideas that turn in to creative solutions to problems/opportunities, helps make people’s life better.

What turns you off about marketing/business?
–  Not the business, but people rather who don’t quite get what marketing actually is in the present age.

What’s your favorite curse word when you see really bad marketing?
–  OMG you gotta be kiddin me!

What sound or noise do marketers/business people make that you love?
–  The constant tapping of fingers on the table, bang of the table when an idea is conceived

What sound or noise do marketers/business people make that you hate?
–  Cheap copy and stupid messages.

What profession other than marketing should marketers attempt – to become better at marketing?
–  Marketers haven’t left any profession untended!

What profession should marketers never try?
–  Finance, Number crunching, Statistics

If marketing heaven exists, what would God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
–  “Finally you’re here. My heaven feels so complete now”
