What can we learn about marketing from Monty Python?


Recently the Monty Python crew got involved with Social Marketing. Yes even the old British comedy troupe from the 70′s has embrace marketing on the web. What’s better is they have done it in Pythonesque style. They have taken a bad situation (people uploading their copyrighted material to YouTube) and made it into a sales opportunity.

For 3 years you YouTubers have been ripping us off, taking tens of thousands of our videos and putting them on YouTube. Now the tables are turned. It’s time for us to take matters into our own hands.
We know who you are, we know where you live and we could come after you in ways too horrible to tell. But being the extraordinarily nice chaps we are, we’ve figured a better way to get our own back: We’ve launched our own Monty Python channel on YouTube.

What can we learn from this?

  • Embrace Social Media Marketing.
  • Be creative in your marketing/sales attempts
  • Provide fun/interesting content for your audience
  • Entice them to come back
  • Start today while the technology is still somewhat new.

Happy Holidays!
