Too much monkey business

The Infinite Monkey Theorem states that given enough time, a monkey tapping randomly away on a typewriter will at some point come up with the entire works of Shakespeare.

Now, I have no idea how long it will be before one of our simian cousins manages to author a passable copy of The Tempest or King Lear…

But it seems some of them have found enough hours in the day to stop flinging shit at each another and try their hand at writing marketing strategy posts.

Actually, a more accurate description is probably marketing strategy listicles. Because in monkey business world, strategies apparently come by the cartload:

β­• 11 Most Effective B2B Marketing Strategies
β­• 7 Amazing Marketing Strategies from Top Brands
β­• 37.5 Marketing Strategies to Try in 2022 (With Examples!)

And what banana bomb level of strategic insight do we get if we take the bait?

Social media. Content. Video. Content. Blog. Content. SEO. Content. Lead magnet. Content. Facebook. Content. LinkedIn. Content. Retargeting. Content. Organic. Content. Email. Content. Inbound. Content. Conversational. Content. Paid. Content. Viral. Content. Storytelling. Content.

PFFFF! πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š

I just hope there’s enough monkeys, enough typewriters and enough time left in the known universe for these words to eventually appear:
