Internet Marketing Light Bulb Jokes

Why did I write this? I don’t know why. Because I write jokes… and I’m in internet marketing. I thought it would be fun to lampoon some of the things I and my peers do all the time… why not?

How many search engine optimizers does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one, but it’s gonna take about 3-6 months to start to see the light bulb change. And that light bulb’s pretty high up there- are you sure you wouldn’t rather change 10 easier light bulbs?

How many pay per click experts does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one but the cost depends on how much the other light bulb changers are currently charging- and you’re going to need a totally new kind of light bulb for that fixture. Actually I have to create it. I’ve never seen a fixture quite like that one.

Oh well that all depends… what’s your budget?

How many PR people does it take to change a light bulb?
We can’t change it, but we can tell other people that we need it changed. And we can’t be sure if it gets changed but we can estimate if it probably got changed based on other people’s light bulb changing.

Just one- he made the rest of the room look really freaking cool, so someone should definitely want to come in here and change that light bulb for you sometime soon.

How many viral video people does it take to change a light bulb?
Three; one guy to film it, a teenager to change the light bulb then faceplant off the ladder, and a dog to immediately skateboard by past him, wagging its tail.
