Fun with Marketing (Part 2) by Lisa Buffaloe

We serious writers know that by including two POVs we can strengthen the story and help readers bond with both the protagonist and ironically, the antagonist. Well, here from the Wolf's POV, is his response to the advantage the three little pigs tried to gain last week. Enjoy this lighthearted look at marketing from author Lisa Buffaloe. Happy writing, friends! ~ Annette

Fun with Marketing (Part 2)
By Lisa Buffaloe

What if a work of childhood fiction was in reality a true-life story?

Non-fiction marketing plan for
The Wolf

To the Publisher:

I am huffing and puffing mad to discover that my archenemies, the pigs, have approached you to publish their squealing lies. Therefore, I am sending you my own marketing plan which you better consider (if you know what’s best).

I commit to write articles and speak on …          
  • The importance of knowing the psychology of your prey.
  • Learning the art of huffing and puffing.
  • The importance of proper lung development (asthma and lung cancer sites).
  • Business techniques in learning from other’s mistakes.
  • Infiltrating pig architectural firms.
  • How to be a wolf in sheep clothing.
  • Convincing pigs why they should only use straw for their home building to benefit the environment.
             
Product Marketing includes contacting companies listed below …         
  • Bacon
  • Pork chops
  • Asthma Medication
  • ACME Lung Development products
  • Home builders and home design
  • Architecture firms
  • Brick companies

Call me. I will be waiting.

The Wolf

How would you market for the wolf?
