    A Professor at one of the IIM's ( India) was explaining marketing concepts to the Students:-

    You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" That's Direct Marketing

    One of your friends points at you and says: "He's very rich. Marry him." That's Advertising

    You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say: "Hi, I'm very rich. Marry me." That's Telemarketing

    You get up and straighten your tie, you walk up to her and pour her a drink, you open the door of the car for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her ride and then say: "By the way, I'm rich. Will you marry me?" That's Public Relations

    She walks up to you and says: "You are very rich! Can you marry me?" That's Brand Recognition

    You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" She gives you a nice hard slap on your face. That's Customer Feedback

    You go up to her and say: "I am very rich. Marry me!" And she introduces you to her husband. That's demand and supply gap.

    Before you say anything, another person comes and tells her: "I'm rich. Will you marry me?" and she goes with him That's competition eating into your market share

    Before you say: "I'm rich, Marry me!" yourwife arrives. That's restriction for entering new markets

    Good one Arvind ji !
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
