STATUS: The day has just begun but I’m hoping to really finish my entire To Do list before I leave tonight.
What’s playing on the iPod right now? I WANT YOU by Marvin Gaye
This is such a classic from the New Yorker on the marketing plan. It begins with an introduction from the unpaid intern who has replaced the promotion department at XYZ books.
Need I go on from here? Oh but I must! My favorite line is this one (coffee alert!):
“Once we get back from Frankfurt, we’d like to see you on morning talk shows like the “Today” show and “The View,” so please get yourself booked on them and keep us “in the loop.” If I’m not here—which I won’t be, since after the book fair I go on vacation for two weeks—just tell Jenni, my assistant, when she gets back from jury duty.”
Grin. All in good fun, certainly, but every day I’m happy for having our marketing director.
Enjoy and have a great weekend.
