Because I’m on “The List” I’ve been noticing talk on:
1. Mobile Marketing
2. Facebook ads (+ gmail, hotmail)
3. YouTube links (George Brown)
These are high traffic areas to put up your signpost, which is better than in a desert but lots of competition.
Which I love to hate.
So you go where the traffic is, and traffic is mobile Google Mobile Advertising.
Some of us love attention. I’m not an attention grabber.
[Scroll down for the Easter Egg…]
But let me tell you a story.
One day I was at a party. A friend of mine that I’d eat lunch with, who’d pick me up on the way to work if he saw me at the bus stop, invited me to his housewarming party. He was dating a high profile twin and they moved in together. For shame! I went with my friend from work because we both met him at the same time (he came to check out our related agency moving in across the street).
So at the party I moved around and found myself standing in the living room which was filled with people. Somehow I got into an animated, highly enjoyable, back and forth with some random handsome man. And we’re talking great guns for awhile quite close…I love this kind of talking chemistry. After awhile I suddenly became aware of space around us and looked and saw everyone in the whole room had taken a seat and was just watching us! So, I immediately told him I had to go and politely left the room.
Later my friend says oh you were getting on quite well with that famous tennis player…nudge nudge. How does she know these things?
Then later (or was it before?) I went into the bedroom, where the coats are, for a second and the host bars my way out and starts telling me “You’re so beautiful…you’re SO beautiful” which is a pretty odd thing for my friend to say, and I’m thinking “Uh oh…” and then in walks the twin and stammers and apologizes for interrupting us!
Long story short, I’d rather have a business that I’m conducting under the radar…fame makes me feel uncomfortable, but it’s always finding me on a small scale.
btw that same man eventually broke up with the twin when she lost her high-powered job and couldn’t deal. And he just knew to show up on the last day I worked (I flew out the next day) and brought me big flowers.
Anyway, my friend brings it up from time to time to tease me and I always tell her it was the shirt (that looks like chain mail: little grey plastic squares) and that she gets to wear it next time ;)
