    Ok, for some light relief on a Friday, we’re rehashing the classic Chuck Norris Facts to see what would happen if Chuck Norris decided to become a marketing expert and critique your favorite landing page.

    Advance warning, this won’t be pretty, but with a bit of luck it should make you laugh.

    Chuck Norris Marketing Facts

    Here are the top 9 reasons why Mr. Norris should never be allowed near a whiteboard:

    1. Chuck Norris doesn’t need a call to action. Action needs a call to Chuck.

    1. PPC no longer stands for Pay-Per-Click. It stands for Pay-Per-Chuck. And in order to see the next page you have to Roundhouse Click on the ad.

    1. The conversion rate on ChuckNorris.com is whatever Chuck says it is. And as a general rule, it beats the industry average by infinity.

    1. Chuck Norris generates leads by pointing at people.
      If he points at you twice, you lose the right to unsubscribe and your first newborn will be named “eBook” by default.

    1. When UFC president Dana White asked Chuck Norris to design a landing page for his latest Pay-Per-View campaign; Chuck took out a crayon, artfully sketched a roundhouse kick on the octagon canvas and caught Dana in a Rear Naked Choke… from the front… fully clothed. #TrueStory

    1. Chuck Norris purposely re-designed a landing page for Vin Diesel and gave it a bounce rate of 200%.

    1. At a spelling bee in 1947, a young Chuck Norris was asked to spell “optimization”. When the competition judge awoke from his Chuck-induced coma on April 21, 1993, he was swiftly roundhouse kicked in the face by Walker, Texas Ranger… Coincidence? I think not.

    1. When Chuck Norris visits your landing page, Google Analytics automatically emails you a letter of apology (cc’ing Chuck) to explain why the traffic spike has broken your account, forever.

    1. When Chuck Norris says a form field is required, he @**#&#! means it.
      You’ll know when it’s required by the giant fist icon, Chuck has no respect for asterisks.

    One final note…

    If you don’t re-tweet this post, Chuck Norris will kick your a**
