Cartoon: Marketing Sense vs. Common Sense (Part 1/2)


Following script is enough to explain the idea, Marketing Sense vs. Common Sense:


Eric: Back to your question, what is marketing?

Kimberly: Oh, simple! Marketing is sales, advertising, social media, publicity!

Open Me (to read complete script)

Eric: No! That’s not marketing, for God sake!

Kimberly: What the hell is that marketing!!

Eric: Before definition of marketing, it is essential to eliminate every myth you have for marketing. First, learn what marketing is not!

Eric: Marketing is not sales, advertising or social media. Don’t worry! We’ll learn the difference while discussing definition of marketing.

Kimberly: Oh my God! I was taught in a totally wrong direction. I thought it’s simply a common sense and everyone can do it. Like, through advertising.

Eric: In fact, marketing is not a common sense. Everyone can do business. But, everyone cannot do marketing.

Kimberly: Why not???

Eric: To answer this, let’s, ask our audience some questions.

Kimberly: Sure! Hi our lovely audience! Please help me to answer that why marketing is not a common sense, you have to answer in three seconds. Ready?

Eric: Ok! Question one: can you win in a court effectively without having law education?

Kimberly: No (she thinks)

Eric: Question two: Can you win a war without having military education?

Kimberly: No (she thinks)

Eric: You’re genius. Well, if your answer is no. Try this question:

Eric: Can you do marketing for your product without having marketing education?

Kimberly: Of course not! So, if common sense is not the way to do marketing, what’s the right way?

Eric: “Marketing Sense” is the right way. (We’ll discuss Marketing Sense in the next video)


1. Marketing is not a common sense,

2. Marketing is not another word for sales, advertising, PR or social media etc.

3. Use your “Marketing Sense” to do marketing, not common sense. (We’ll discuss Marketing Sense in the next video)
