Outrageous Marketing

By on April 11, 2015

What is Outrageous Marketing?

Some that is outrageous is something that stands out and is bold. Its something that catches your attention and keeps it. How would this help in marketing? Well, if your being noticed then you are obtaining the opportunity to present your message or product before all others. This is huge deal! Consumers see thousands of advertisements every day and if yours is able to be the one that stands out and is the attention grabber then you have won a major part of the battle!

Many large companies are spending a tremendous amount of money to saturate and dominate the market. The only ones that can compete are the ones that have roughly the same budget or more. Well, that isn’t true with Outrageous Marketing. Its a whole new view on marketing materials and how to win against large budgets. The reason is that most of the large budget marketing strategies are playing it safe. They want the small and steady growth they have had and don’t want to “risk” anything by being outrageous. But, by keeping your marketing on the outrageous side, you are able to be the one that stands out and is remembered. You will have the greater growth, success, and conversion.

How I Found Out About Outrageous Marketing.

I didn’t always think like this about how to present a message and how to be remembered. It came from a book that I found at a book sale at the local public library for .25 cents! The cover was so outrageous that it caught my eye and made me have to pick it up and see what it was all about. The cover has a sumo wrestler in an Air Jordan like pose dunking a basketball. Cant miss that one! Nor could I resist picking it up! You see, the cover was so outrageous in its marketing strategy that it won. Now, you may say, “well, at .25 cents, who wouldn’t buy it?”. Well, just by seeing the cover and reading the preface briefly I was a believer and had already won me over with an example.

If you are in business at any level or work for a business to provide any kind of service or marketing for them then I suggest reading this book.
