Nerds in general are genetically programmed to be genius at some things while not so good at others.
Let’s take flirting as an example: such an arbitrarily random and irrational social behavior – based solely on an instinctive interpretation of body language – is likely to send the geekier amongst us into a mental state somewhat akin to a panic attack or the classic “deer in headlights” syndrome.
Translation: they’re not very good at it.
Traditional old-school marketing didn’t have many geeks, but the more contemporary discipline of internet marketing has, by virtue of it’s online proximity, produced a new wave of the nerdy type who are probably as flirtatiously challenged as the engineers and programmers out there.
To illustrate more clearly the struggles that can face the geeky romeo, please observe the following:
Today I present marketing romantics everywhere with your very own “Pick Up Lines for eMarketing Nerds” handbook.
To help you get it on with your favorite online marketer, you should never leave home without these can’t-miss pick-up lines: (good for boys AND girls)
This is definitely a step up on the nerd scale, so we’ll have to be extra tactical in order to rope one of these.
Email marketers are a bit of an open and shut case. They love it when you pay attention to them right away, but they can get frustrated when you label them as important and then forget to call them for 3 weeks.
Ok, this is seriously dodgy territory. The PPC boy/girl is often known to pay to get what they want. Be very careful…
In the internet marketing world, the Affiliate marketer is the classic Wingman. They do all the legwork, scouting out the hottest singles for you to hook up with, and all they ask for is a small cut in return. Hmmm.
Now that you’re armed with the cheesiest pick-up lines in the industry, head on out and snag yourself some nerdy marketing action.
Don’t forget to tell us if you get lucky (or slapped).
