Your Marketing Problems Are Solved

marketing problems cartoon

Sometimes you underestimate what a cartoon is going to require when you first get an idea. The basic premise here was that someone combines parts of a lot of different social media into something that’s obviously not going to work, but they assume it covers all the bases.

But when you get into it and you start piecing it together, you realize you can’t put the + right before the emoticon because then they combine confusingly. And there’s no good way to work LinkedIn in that’s not awkward. And you need a place for the characters to use this Franken-word that’s commonly used, but that’s obviously not going to work.

When it’s all done, hopefully you’ve got a good cartoon. But mostly you’re just glad to have gotten it done.

  1. I think the problem is not the mere utilization of businesses of social media. It is because they use it wrongly. They think that they can combine it and think that they are doing something good for their business without really understanding what it can do.

  2. I like that you explain the inspiration behind each cartoon you create. I find it just as enjoyable to read as the cartoon itself.

    Lol at “Franken-word”!

    That Franken-word basically sums up the jungle that is social media.

  3. Mark, this is one of my fav’s. Hysterical and so whimsical. Love the two you have done for me. #trusthewhy drops very soon.
