I was working on a small project as a contractor with an agency. The project involved coming up with marketing ideas for a local tattoo shop.
One of my clients was an account manager who was particularly obnoxious as she frequently talked about herself in a condescending way, injected her personal opinions into conversations, and seemed pretty unaware of herself in general.
Client: How about removable tattoos that the business could give away to promote the tattoo shop?
Me: Umm, I don’t know if that would really make sense or if the business would like that idea.
Another client/account manager agreed with me and said so.
Client: Sure, kids would especially love them. You have to think about the marketing as it relates to the business, you know?
The other account ,manager and I had to listen to her justify how great her removable tattoo giveaway idea was for 5 minutes, while we tried REALLY hard not to roll our eyes or just walk away from the conversation.
Because nothing says get a permanent & awesome tattoo, like a cheap removable tattoo sticker promoting the business.
