I'm looking for Online/Offline cliches that take the cake

12 replies
I know there are lists out there of things said in marketing campaigns, but I'd like to get a list started here to see if we can create a "new and improved" marketing cliche list.

    "...take the cake". Bit of a cliché, isn't it?

    I'm presonally a flan of this thread; but when it comes to an off topic conversation the proof is in the pudding.

      Here's a few off of the top of my head.

      Icing on the cake
      Beat a dead horse
      You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink
      All that glitters is not gold
      A king's ransom
      A cash cow
      The hand writing is on the wall
      Read between the lines
      Keep It Simple Stupid - KISS
      Laugh all the way to the bank
      He's a legend in his own mind
      Necessity is the mother of invention
      Balls to the wall
      A no brainer
      You have to kiss a lot of toads before you find your prince

      Okay, this is getting old, lol!

                That's cute. In the time it has taken me to type these words I was given ownership of the Federal Reserve for my marketing prowess :rolleyes::p.

              Ah, uh, erm, rolling in the dough?

              Laughing all the way to the bank?

              Put your money where your mouth is?

              A sweetheart of a deal?

              A penny for your thoughts?

              Giving our 2 cents worth?

              There's gold in them thar hills?

              Take your pick!

      Here are a few of my favorites:

      "this is the most important email you will ever read"

      "there are only 3 copies of my digital download remaining"

      "dominate your niche!" (as though you could single-handedly dominate, say, weight loss)

      "this changes everything!"

      "I'm re-sending this email because all the traffic crashed my server"

    "See you on the inside"

    When I first started IM, I heard/saw this a lot and still do. And I get it.

    But that makes it no less creepy.
