17 Funny Memes on Marketing

Updated on December 10, 2015

Welcome to the lens of memes, marketing memes to be precise

To make your own check out "meme generator". The meme sensation has swept the nation, up here in Canada people have finally caught on to the hilarity that ensues once you understand what you can do with memes. Some of the funniest pictures on the internet are now memes. I sure hope you enjoy.

Meme's have swept our media driven society by storm. Just a few years ago, laying text over images in any quick fashion was dam near impossible! Today you can find apps that will do it for you and specific meme's on Reddit dedicated specifically to meme's. Isn't it a funny world.

If you think about it on a sociological level, memes are the way our current younger generation communicates. In symbols and in relevant situations others can relate to. If you think about the velcro theory of memory, we all like to learn by comparing to similar experiences in our past or other examples that help us understand a new concept. So to understand the world better we now use memes. A rather funny way to communicate, it take wit, humour, courage, and a higher intelligence to create some of the genius you find on the internet today.

Enjoy my take on some marketing themes in our north american culture.

There's nothing worse...

There's nothing worse...you know the situation. The boss wants in on the newsletter, he/she writes a novel and you have NO idea what to do. Do you publish it? Do you lie to your boss and say it's good? Good luck with this one.

For crying out loud please stop with the long e-mails!

There was a story I read about Larry Page and how if you send him an e-mail longer than a couple lines he won't answer you. That's a little extreme but c'mon! Let's not give up on this phone thing or god forbid we actually meet in person.

Down with QR codes!

On signs and billboards now? I think we've over done it. People aren't scanning these things so why are we still using them?

No one needs a strategy, just engage socially while providing value to the community

"We update Facebook everyday even though most people don't give a rats ass."

Just updating your Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter, that's easy, developing a way to inspire your team to communicate better, now that's a strategy.

You advertise in what now?

18 were delivered to my apartment building and 17 still remained there two months after. Bob Dylan was right, the "The Times They Are Changin'".

What if QR Codes aren't what we think they are?

Nope, still QR codes have no use. None. Please stop using them.

C'mon, who really listens to the radio?

You may listen to it passively at a store or in someones car, but you never are engaged in listening. This makes recalling what you hear on there a lot more difficult. Rather try permission based marketing instead.

If everyone is doing it, it must be right!

I think they have over 1,000,000,000 users now. That actually one sixth of the world. That's pretty incredible. It's still one of the busiest online platforms, if you want to get to a lot of people, Facebook is the place to go.

How to make money in Social Media

Well that's a complete lie, engagement does make you money in the long run but regular updates and automated responses is definitely not the way to make money using social media.
