If you are ever in a jam, a crayon scrunched upon under your nose makes a good pretend mustache. Original Philsosophy  by Phil Dunphy


If you’re ever in a web traffic jam, the jumping dinosaur game is a good time pass.

Marketing Version


Now this one is a fun one. We talked a lot of heavy-duty marketing stuff, getting into what a marketer should and shouldn’t do, but hey! Even we marketers need some fun. We’ve all been in a place where our internet gives upon us, and we have all played the jumping dinosaur game.

However, If you say you haven’t then I don’t believe you because you are so clearly being untrue.  Web traffic if goes beyond control can jeopardize quick and easy access to the website and shut it off completely.

So before it crashes your website, you must find a way to lower the traffic. A simple halt can work wonders. So when in halt play the dinosaur game.


 When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all “Whaaaat?” – Phil Dunphy


When your customers give you a bad review, give them a good review. Customers will be like whaaaaaa?

Marketing Version


Negative reviews trouble every business, be it emotionally or financially or both. It is a part and parcel of every business. No matter how well you conduct your business, there will be one customer who has some problem with it. It’s a matter of sensitivity when customers give you a bad review because you cannot afford to be bitter about it even though you’re.

So when they give you a bad review, you channel your inner Gandhi and be as polite and positive to them as you can.

Remember even negative publicity is publicity, and even though we want the negatives to be at a bare minimum, your reaction and the way you handle that negative review will say a lot about you. If you play your cards right, you can use that negative review to your advantage.

In addition to that, it would let them know that you take it all in stride and you have got what it takes.


And now for the bonus modified Phil Dunphy Marketing Quote


Brands are perfectionists, which sometimes is a good thing, like when it comes to picking a marketing agency called Bizadmark.


See what I did there? That’s a little self deserving marketing. (I Believe in the Philsosophy of “Love Yourself”)
