Don’t sell cars, if you don’t drive, Don’t sell Advertising for Cable-One aka Sparklight, if you don’t watch TV.

 

I wanted to get this out this afternoon since it is crucial for people in media sales, especially TV or any sales for that matter. After months of poking at em, finally Cable-One’s Oh sorry, Sparklight Cable’s ad sales department finally called me. Only because I rattled the chain of the head guru in Boise. Any mile this one lady calls me. I say , that since we are in the Custom MC space that we wanted to be on the 2nd season of the Mayans on FX. The question from her was, “what is the Mayans? ” I had to explain that. Then for Heavy Rescue Toewing, we wanted to be on both of the tow series on the Weather Channel, both Highway Through Hell, and our name sake Heavy Rescue 401. Again the question what are they she asked. Really? I said don’t you watch your product? Don’t you watch cable TV? She said she didn’t watch it much. I replied , must be like buying a car or truck from someone that does not drive. It’s just plain stupid. Really its and yes I will use this word, retarded. Or for that matter trying to drive a right handed car on a left side road. Just makes me have to shake my head. Of course I also remember and it ain’t been that long ago, having to get the concept of our infamous toew smooch.alasweet toews The simplicity of it, is a play on words, TOE and of course TOW. Yet, it , outside of Erin, was a battle to educate the applicants of talent of just what and why we do that. Has our population, even American’s became so brain numb that we can’t(or wont) use that thing between your ears? Have we became or hit R for reverse to the primate mentality? Is it just the fact that as much as they beller that women still have no business being in big business? It boils down to this; No training, no experience, no interest. We had better get to doing better or those Pacific Rim nations will exceed us in every way. More on tonights entry.
