Storytelling Isn't Marketing - Productivity Nugget #234


We have a new in the now... .

I was getting played out, so now it's time for something new.

But storytelling???


Storytelling isn't new... it's been around for at least 30,000 years.

If you think that by adding some "storytelling" to , your business will be saved... well good luck with that belief.

And then when you decide to start chasing another belief in 3 months... good luck with that one two.

And then in 6 months when my  new social network called Fridgerate comes out, you'll be focused on that.

On Fridgerate you will "Magnet" stuff you want to show off or remember, and the public can see this. But there is also a privacy setting where can "Fridge" stuff. This means you keep it inside and "cool" in a secure location, but you can choose to share it with others. Kinda like Dropbox.

So you have that to look forward to...

But in the mean time, you have everyone, their mom and dog telling you that you have to become a Storyteller now.

Storytelling Isn't Marketing

Look, I get the concept 100%.

If you are on my email list, I've been telling a story every day for almost the last year.

But you can't just be a storyteller.

My favorite character... ... Maybe it's the romantic in me...

... is .

I seriously love the Le Pew cartoons so much that I almost named my dog for this Looney Tunes short.

My dog is a French. A French Bulldog.

is a French name and the name of the cat that Pepe is always chasing.

My dog almost ended up being named Penelope (Penny) for short, but I settled on Pearl instead.

Marketing & Productivity Tips From Pepe Le Pew

Here is what I dig about Pepe...

He is suave. Consistent. Never looks stressed. Stays relentless without overexerting himself.

He is casually persistent.

No matter how fast, how frantic, how far Penelope ... Pepe is always right there. And he never breaks a . He just does his little hop and sings his .

Pepe stays positive. He never looks disappointed or frustrated or upset. No mater what happens to Pepe he always has a good attitude. I think the reason is because he is chasing something he loves.

Are you chasing what you love?

It's important to do all these with your marketing and to increase your productivity.

    • Don't stress.
    • Be consistent.
    • Stay relentless... but don't overexert.
    • Stay positive.

Productivity Tips From The Roadruner & Wile E. Coyote

Productivity Tips From Sam Sheepdog

Productivity Tips From The Roadrunner & Wile E. Coyote - Productivity Nugget #231

Yesterday you got some productivity tips from Sam Sheepdog. Today lets go over what you can learn about and marketing from The and E. .

Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote are basically the same premise as Sam Sheepdog and . Except Wile E. is a bit more obsessive and crazed about catching the Roadrunner. Ralph can leave work at work.

Wile E. Coyote uses every trick, every , every idea he can come up with to catch the Road Runner.

Wile E. Coyote bounces from one tactic to another tactic to another tactic.

He even seems a bit tech savvy... the way he is always ordering gadgets from the Acme Company.

But it never works. It's just one shiny object after another.

The Roadrunner on the other hand...

He does one thing... and he does it well.

He runs really, really fast! Beep!

This is a great productivity and marketing tip.

Do one thing.

Do it well.

Keep doing it. Keep doing it. Keep doing it.

Don't be like Wile E. Coyote always ordering another . Always coming up with a crazy complicated complex plan. Always chasing after what he wants. Never catching it.

Be like the Roadrunner. Do one thing. Do it well. And keep doing it.

Watch some Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote cartoons below...
