"Knock knock!"

"Who's there?"

"Interrupting Cow."

"Interrupting Cow wh--"


If you have children or grandchildren, you’ve probably heard the joke,

But Mark Schaefer isn’t laughing.

When it comes to marketing, few know the ins and outs better than Mr. Schaefer, a keynote speaker, educator, business consultant, and author.

And he says it’s time to stop irritating people with your cow-like marketing.

“We’re doing things that annoy people,” he says. “Marketing historically has been a combination of psychology and sociology and anthropology – not automation.

“If we’re spamming people, if we’re interrupting them, intercepting them in a way that annoys then, we need to stop.”

After more than 30 years in global sales, PR, and marketing and as executive director of Schaefer Marketing Solutions working with companies as diverse as Adidas, Johnson & Johnson, GE Life Sciences, the U.S. Air Force and the UK government, he says it’s increasingly difficult to do effective marketing.

He says that’s due to a raft of reasons, ranging from the sheer volume of information that’s flooding the world to the seemingly infinite number of channels delivering it.
