A Rabbi and a Consultant walk into a Starbucks.

This morning, Scott asked the following question on Twitter and the UnMarketing Facebook page:



The replies were just too awesome not to share.  Check out some of our favorites.

“You smile/laugh too much, thats not business like” @CJEEPG

“We are experts at social media, pay us $2,000 – $5,000 and we will handle it all for you, blogs to twittering” ”ª#had23followers @AOSDave

“Have you heard of Web 2.0?”  @MKNodurft 

“Marketing is not a priority for our company.”@sunnyhunt

“Can I have your facebook number?” @tonyseifart 

“How quickly can I make money through Twitter?” @energinemktg

“You should be tweeting at least 30 times and blogging twice a day. @bar2cci

“Our Facebook strategy is only partially spammy” @Jason_Faber

“Can you make this video viral?” @khazaert

And from Facebook (you can read them all here)

“My clients don’t pay any attention to social media” shared by Sheri Wahlstrom

”Ž”Timeline killed my FB page.” shared by Garland West 

“You don’t need a website if you have a Facebook page.” shared by Ceci Grasso Dadisman

“What’s all this about a Winky-pedia?” shared by Ryan Crowe

“The MLM “marketers” that want to “help” just 5 more people today to reach financial freedom. You check their timeline, they say it everyday.” shared by Adam Dukes

There were about a hundred more worth sharing.  

We decided that for us, the worst is the use of buzz words. 

Penetrate. Synergy. Escalate. Stick a pin in it. Action item. Viral. Engage.

Stop it please. You’re making Scott and Alison cry.
