Humour - Teaching Marketing to Male Business Students

Updated on March 2, 2012


Teachers have to use various, interesting ways to help learners achieve the objectives of the lesson and this is one example. A Business teacher takes time to explain the art of Marketing, in a funny and unique way. He states:



1) When you see a beautiful lady at a party and approach her saying: “I am rich, will you Marry me?

That is called: Direct Marketing.

2) When you are at a party and a friend of yours is with a girl, but pointing at you, telling her: “He is rich, you should marry him.”

That is called: Advertising.

3) If a lady walks up to you and says: “You seem very rich, can you marry me?
That is called: Brand Recognition.

4) If you say to a Lady "I am rich,will you marry me?" and she slaps you.

That is called: Customer Feedback.

5) If when you say “I am rich, will you marry me?” and your wife arrives, just as you are saying it.
That is called: Restriction from Entering New Market.


I think the Teacher got his point across effectively. Do you?

      Hi Lady_E’

      This was quite humorous. My students will laugh at the Direct Marketing strategy for being rather direct. Few men have the courage to use the approach.

      I love the Advertising approach. I think I should try it one of these days.

      I believe many ladies use Brand Recognition without uttering a word, of course with good intentions.

      Customer Feedback wakes guys fast.

      Oh..., what a pity to the guy who gets Restricted from Entering a New Market. Most married men are tamed by this.

      I’ll definitely share it. Quite interesting and voted up

      @yoebaree Thanks Yoebaree. I am glad you enjoyed it. I appreciate you stopping by.

      @andromida Thats true Andromida. Good to see you again and thanks for all the RTs on Twitter.

      @anglnwu Hi Angeline - I am glad you like the examples. Some teachers have a way of making you develop more than an interest in a subject. Cheers.
