We need to talk about this marketing hate...

Hey Savages,


Recently I've noticed a lot of posts complaining about marketing and really just hounding then as the source of all evil.


I think it's important for us to remember that marketers are people too, even if they're disguising themselves as a sales influencer or they work at Gong.


It's not marketings fault that they couldn't think of a better career avenue. They're simply lost little lambs up on the stripper pole we call life.


At the end of the day you need to ask yourself - not what marketing can do for you, but what you can do for marketing?


The answer my friends is simple - open up an ice cold Coors lights and then crap all over them.


Have a blessed day and fuck marketing.


P.S fuck offices that have uniforms as well

I like to give marketing hope on occasion by responding to one of their emails excitedly saying that it led to me closing the biggest whale of my career!

Then when they respond excitedly(hopefully in person) I tell them "No you idiot your outreach and cadence is so dogshit it's actually one of the key objections I have to overcome to close" and throw a warm(hard to find I know) unopened can of Coors at their forehead and get back to hustling.

You had me going for a second there and I was worried we needed to have an intervention. 

I like the play the long game with marketing though. Send them kombucha once a week and add them to all of my team meetings but then lock their mutes on mics so only they can hear their stupid fucking ideas while the rest of us sell.

Plenty of other reasons for an intervention.

At the end of the day, both sales and marketing exist to push eachother to great ness. Sales is pushed to make up for the lack of marketing pipeline and revenue - thus earning fatter commish checks through pure spite. And Marketing is pushed to spend an extra 6 weeks on that case study because the choice between egg shell white and off white for the background needs to be just right!

I was going to say of course not, but then realized you might be in the UK.

Which makes that a very different, and much more personal, question...

Go get your own leads. Stop feeding at the marketing trough. Getting hot leads for sales is not a job for marketing.  If you want a buyer to take your advice and then eventually buy from you, you should be able to get that respect from the start. The sales world needs to grow up and get this.
