You know, it never ceases to amaze me how often business people use oxymoronic statements as part of their marketing philosophy. We often accept this kind of language as normal speech. Take for example “least effort most gained”. The reality is, the only time that the “least effort could produce the most gained is if more effort was misplaced.  There are hundreds of these phrases - for example; clearly misunderstood, act naturally, seriously funny, definite maybe and many more. Not all the statements in this category are necessarily moronic. My favorite sayings come from a much-beloved character who played baseball for the Yankees as well as managing the Yankees and the Mets. His name is Yogi Berra, and many of the sayings that came out of his mouth were just as profound as they were oxymoronic. I often think about some of his sayings when people ask me a question about their marketing strategies. In this episode of Working the Web to Win, we are am going to use a number of Yogi’s quotes to make important points regarding how business people often go astray when making their marketing plans. So tune in and hold that dial while we take a look at my favorite Yogi-isms and how I see them relating to marketing strategy.
