You Know You're a Marketer If... [Slide Show]

by   |    |  98 views

What makes a person a marketer? What identifies a marketer from other folks in an organization? (Besides the obvious fact that the person works in Marketing.)

We took a light-hearted approach to that question and asked the MarketingProfs Facebook group to finish this sentence: "You know you're a marketer if..."

As we expected from the energetic and savvy group of marketers, the answers were fun, engaging, and---in some cases---absolutely cartoon-worthy.

So, I took our favorite responses and drew cartoons to match the definitions then put them in a slideshow to share with you.



Here's a peek at some of the responses in the slide show...

From Libby Eddleman Spears: "You know you're a marketer if you give your kids ideas about how to market their lemonade stand." (Click to tweet!)

From Corey O'Loughlin: "You know you're a marketer if your family thinks you 'do Facebook' for a living." (Click to tweet!)

From Tara Sundaram: "You know you're a marketer if you get excited at every beep of a new lead arriving in your inbox." (Click to tweet!)

From Sherice Jacob: "You know you're a marketer if you study informercials instead of changing the channel." (Click to tweet!)

From Arié Moyal: "You know you're a marketer if you can guess a brand by its typeface." (Click to tweet!)

From Shelly Lucas: "You know you're a marketer if you're a little pitcher with big ears." (Click to tweet!)

From Veronica Maria Jarski: "You know you're a marketer if everything is a potential blog post." (Click to tweet!)

From David Pittman: "You know you're a marketer if you use unique spelling in your child's name because of the branding potential." (Click to tweet!)

From John at GoSoLoMo: "You know you're a marketer if you successfully sell your son the benefits of a clean room." (Click to tweet!)

From Nicole Rodriguez: "You know you're a marketer if you analyze good placement on shelves at the grocery store." (Click to tweet!)

    So good! Love the idea of having your community provide the answers and the illustrations are great.

    "What makes a person a marketer? What identifies a marketer from other folks in an organization? (Besides the obvious fact that the person works in Marketing.)"

    Disagree on the part about just working in the marketing dept makes you a marketer, but everything else? Spot on! :D

    The informercial one really cracked me up! Very true here - thought I was the only one!

    Ah, good point, William! So true.

    Everyone in the Marketing department is a marketer, but not everyone who is a marketer is in the Marketing department. : )

    Alas, no. We all have a secret (or not-so-secret) love of infomercials...

    I love Lynn Altman's answer with the "consideration set." My friends look at me like I've gone crazy when I sling around marketing speak like that.
