Sadly, I’m getting a lot of “octomom” reactions. Which is strange, because Octomom will be so “ten minutes ago” in about 30 seconds.
I’m actually more concerned about negative connotations with octopus. It does speak to engaging in social media through a variety of tentacles (again, not exactly a warm ‘n fuzzy word). Um… the octopus has no skeleton so he can squeeze… er… and he’s the smartest invertebrate… oh crap this is getting hard to defend. Where’s my cognitive dissonance when I need it?
Here are some tweets that may send us back to the drawing board. Yey Twitter. Free market research for branding, and worth every penny.
- aztecsghost: “Octomarketing” sounds like a porn site Kevin. Your comment “squirt” didn’t help either.
- acridfusion: “sounds like a full fletched adoption agency for finding homes for octomom’s kids
- philhulett: Nadya Sulemon may already own “Octomarketing.com
- tjcastro (who suggested “marketing beaver”): yes the octopus may squirt, but the beaver will chew through the competition and smack them with his tail.
My stupid marketing “friends” keep telling me to stick with Nalts. So I parked NaltsMarketing.com and CompanyofNalts.com. But don’t think I’m not tempted to go with Peter Coffin’s suggestion: DRAGONPHOENIXLIGHTNINGAWESOME. I parked that bitchin’ URL, Coffin. And it’s pointed right at your YouTube page. But I can swipe it back and direct it to ZackScott like THAT.
