Utterly abhorrent bad taste

We've all seen ads and emails designed to shock the senses, to make us sit up and take notice, and maybe take action. I'm taking action.

Using images of mass murderers, or brutal dictators in order to sell a product crosses the line of good taste, of human decency. Jim Jones led the mass murder-suicide of 909 followers in Guyana, in 1978. He convinced his devoted followers to drink Kool Aid (actually Flavor Aid) laced with cyanide. Until 9/11, it was the greatest single loss of American civilian life in a deliberate act. Jones was a despot, evil incarnate. He's right up there with Hitler, who Pellucid used so gleefully in a recent Outside the Ropes: 

"Before we dive into more detailed explanations of the 11 Theses, I have to share with you a video forwarded to me this past week by a colleague who wishes to remain anonymous.  I think I can probably count on two hands the number of "chain" emails or "you have to watch this" videos I've forwarded in the past decade but this one had me crying I was laughing so hard.  It's Hitler's reaction to being informed of the NGCOA's TPP Guidelines.  Enjoy (I think this might also find its way into next year's SOI presentation intro in Orlando...):"

Ha, ha, ha...let's use humanity's most evil and wicked people to sell our products and services. These images and videos might be fine to share amongst friends, in a social atmosphere. There is absolutely no place for it in the golf business. Or any business, for that matter. 

Andrew Wood, Jim Koppenhaver - shame on both of you. It's strange to find you both in the same boat, the boat of human insensitivity.

Don’t Drink Their Kool-Aid!

They say all politics are local, so too are all tee times.

Legendary Marketing sends an average of 5 million emails a week! 

McDonalds has sold 300 billion hamburgers.

Your local real estate agent is a multimillion-dollar seller.

Do you care?

No, you don’t! 

If you have a home for sale, you just want it sold. 

If you’re hungry, you just want a burger.

And if you are a golf course you just want to drive play, 95% of which will come from within a 25-mile radius or less!

The 3rd Party Pitch is Tempting,

It sounds big,

It sounds powerful,

It sounds too good to be true...

And you have some real concerns...

But aren’t all these other courses around you drinking their Kool-Aid too...?

GolfNow, CourseTrends and other third party vendors tout their large database, their “Magic portal” - the power of 6 million viewers - their 3 million emails...

Yada yada yada.

And how many of them do you think are actually in a 25 mile radius of Yazoo, Mississippi, Nacogdoches, Texas or wherever you happen to be? 

Even if you are in big city like Los Angeles, the chances are even less people will drive across town to see you. Because even a short cross-town drive might take two hours!

What’s even worse is the very people that are supposed to be helping you market your tee times are also your competition! 

In what universe does that make sense?

The good news is the game has changed!

You no longer need mass media, newspapers, TV or giant portals.

What you need is to dominate your local market!

The key to
YOUR SUCCESS is to grab every email and every Facebook fan of every golfer within a 25 radius of your course... or at least 80% of them!

If you do that, the rest is easy, and you don’t need third party vendors at all, although you might still choose to use them tactically on occasion.

Legendary Marketing will build that local database for you in record time. It’s the one thing we do better than anyone on the planet!

Together with our two amazing partners, DRS and OTTO Tee Times, we will turn that local traffic into a 7-15% increase in revenue on average!

  • No up front costs
  • No contracts
  • No term limits
  • We do it all for you, and it’s totally integrated with a dozen POS systems and our proven marketing system
  • We will not compete against you
  • We will not use your data to market other courses
  • We will not use retargeting or ambush marketing to send your website traffic to another club or our 3rd party portal because WE DON’T HAVE ONE!
  • Our job is to help YOU increase your business, which we will do by 7-15% on average! 

If we don’t perform you can go back to whatever you are doing now, which I know is not working like it should!

Don’t drink the third party Kool-Aid, get out while you still can!
