Let's Get One Thing Straight. Customers, you aren't usually right!
I love this clip because as a person that is both a digital marketer but also someone who has started a business you realize something dark.
You go into business to make a difference, to answer to nobody. You do it to be "your own boss".
Yeah, that's all beautiful and rosy, but what you essentially become is a slave to customers. Customers who don't usually know what the hell they are talking about. They know that 9 out of 10 times, they will get what they want.
And, if by chance one day you decide to put your foot down with customers, be prepared to see a strongly worded Yelp review warning everyone in the community about how evil this business is.
The Only Thing Worse Than Customers Is Clients
If your a digital marketer, you can put all your time and effort into a campaign, just for some haters and trolls to rip it into shreds.
And when you go talk to your team or higher ups, all your going to get back in return is, "Customer is king" or better yet, "the client is always right".
Do you feel that?
That thing rising in your back. Yeah that's tension. And I'm getting it too just writing this. But this is the life we chose.
So make sure you sign up for those Yoga classes, get that venti coffee and watch the cutest kitten videos you can because it isn't going to change for a while.
Or you could do what Homer does...
Thank you modern day customers :)
We Can Dream Though, Maybe One Day We'll Have Our Own Bag Boy Strike...
