Please rent this abandoned ship

Please rent this cute site, "Ship Mails".

I don't know why her captain abandoned her.

I knew she had an owner before.

Well, I hope you rent her.

I mean, she's just $29 yearly.

She's such a beauty I hopped on board.

Oh yes, we five-year-old marketers are the first to jump aboard when we like something.

Even as you have not rented her yet, I jumped in already.

I suppose you can call me a "stowaway"?

Well, you've got me on board, how about it?

And no, I don't earn from your renting this pretty site with the cool ship.

I just like the picture.

And I know you will be happy with this site if you like five-year-olds like us.

What would you rather have?

A boatload of us with such happy, excited faces?

Or a boatload of long faces?

I hope you have some candy on-board.

How to think like a five-year-old

A strange thing happened today.

I wanted to start a blog called, "Marketing like a five-year-old".

Of course, I knew I had to research if such a name exists.


There was a book called, "Think Like a 5-Year-Old" by Len Wilson.

The nice thing is that the book spoke exactly about what I thought, too.

Now, I know we are not crazy five-year-olds.

Even so, if we were, we couldn't care much.

Everyone considers five-year-olds weird anyway.

We seem to be in our own world a lot, that's why.

Well, now there's a book published in 2 June 2015 that agrees with who we are and what you can be, too.

If you like five-year-olds or want to be one, well, I hope you get a copy of that one, too.

That would mean more candy money for us.

Please, please, please??!!

Why we're not crazy about school

I guess you can blame Grampa Einstein.

He's supposed to be the brainiest but even he wasn't crazy about school.

Why else did he say, 

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school."

You see that?

Why do you make us go to school?

Why can't we remain the five-year-olds that we are?

Did you know that some wise people said that until the age of five, kids are okay?

After that and they go to school, they become "adult"-erated.

No wonder we have such long faces sometimes.

These wise people said our energies were pure until age five.

And that we were super-creative then.

No wonder Grandpa Einstein was not hot about school.

It seems he wants us to forget school?


That's fun!

So why do we have to do complicated marketing?

Can't we just sell something we don't like so we can buy something we like?

Five-year-olds do that all the time.

Sly ones.

How about you, adults?

Do you also sell something you don't like, so you can buy something you like?

I think you do.

Sly ones.

The shortest and simplest book on writing

I knew I had to write a book.

They said you have to write a book that you want to read.

Well, that gave me the idea.

I decided to write the shortest and simplest book on writing. I called it, "Just Write Will Ya".

Plus, we five-year-olds really think, write, and speak simply.

We may have huge imaginations but when we want something, we just say it like it is.

Also, we don't want to be boring.

Five-year-olds are never boring.

And if you write a short and very easy to understand book, people may just buy.


So I wrote a short book.

I wrote it fast so I can play afterwards.

I hope you learn something from my book.

Sometimes, adults need a simple book.

It's good you have me.

All proceeds of my book will be for this website and to buy candy.

Yes, yes, yes.

I promise to share my candy.

Especially if you buy a lot of this book.

You see, I am learning a thing or two about marketing.

You're such great teachers!

How to market like a five-year-old

How does one market like a five-year-old?

Well, maybe he doesn't market.

Maybe, he doesn't even know the word.

Maybe, all he knows is buying something he likes, or trading stuff.

It's possible he invented the word "barter".

These willful ones will trade everything but their mom and dog.

I don't know about their cat.

And if their dad's good, maybe they'll keep him.

First instincts, you know.

Either he likes something or someone or he doesn't.

And usually, he likes fun, colorful, interesting stuff.

That's how you can hold a five-year-old's interest.

And if he was a marketer, we bet he'd do the same thing -- make his people create fun, happy stuff.

I've been five-year-old marketer for sometime now because it's who I am.

I can't think otherwise.

I prefer my world in many ways as you will see when you read this blog.

I'll start by showing you stuff I like joining or reading; mailers, surf sites, and admins I like; colors I love; words I like to hear -- which, in effect, becomes my own brand of buying and selling.

And, oh yes, I like colorful sites, bright colors, mismatched stuff, happy sites, simple words, caring people, and funny animals and people.

Five-year-olds are sensitive souls.

We're not hot about fights or competitions.

We like people who care and keep things simple.

We don't like seeing long contracts with such tiny words even ants need glasses to read.


One page will do.

Can you do that?

We don't like double-speak.

Wow! That's a BIG word.

Our minds are clear and simple.

May your words be such.

And please, make your marketing ROCK!

Make it happy and colorful and we may just give you a crayon. 

We've got loads of creativity, sincerity, and plane loads of imagination.

We like to use the word "play" instead of "work".

We don't like drudgery.

We like fun.

We like happy stuff.

And yes, we especially love simple.
