I go out of my way and avoid doing business with those who attempt to show how ethical they are by promising X amount or percentage of their sales to charity.
Isn’t this just a backdoor marketing ploy under the banner we are nice people? What is it that they are trying to imply? I care about this world? Rubbish! Do they think people have such a low level of intelligence that they would buy into this?
In my small office block there is a proprietor who is promising to have his legs waxed for Comic Relief. Of course at the same time he is promoting his business with his bright business logo on posters around the building providing information about this Comic Relief non-event.
Not only this he has invited people to watch his legs being waxed. This is some people idea of GSOH! Where is the fun in seeing a man’s hairy legs being waxed? Now if there was a leggy woman having her legs waxed I would be the first in line!
It could be I am just jealous for not taking advantage of Comic Relief marketing opportunity. Are you?
What is your stupid act for Comic Relief?
Wouldn’t it be easier if we parted with our cash without being forced fed the stupidity during Comic Relief season?
