What’s the best way to engage your clients and keep them coming back? By being personable, witty, and not taking yourself too seriously. If you can do that, you’ll be able to win over your audience, impress the right people and be more successful in your career overall. If you need some inspiration to get started on the fun side of digital marketing, check out these 10 cheesy digital marketing jokes that will make you laugh and have clients coming back for more!

A digital marketer walks into a bar
A bartender asks, Can I help you? To which he replies, If you have WiFi. To which she replies, No. Do you need a QR code?

Marketing automation is like having someone who will listen to your problems
It will respond to your questions, give you useful information and can even help resolve your issues. If you have ever worked with a customer service team, or even if you’ve been in an office environment, then you know how valuable it is to get your problem resolved quickly. People want something that works; they don’t want complications or anything else standing in their way of making it through their day. That’s why marketing automation is so important and such a big deal for businesses that rely on digital marketing campaigns. It can take over some of these tasks from employees, freeing them up to perform other duties as well as streamlining some basic tasks for them. As a result, your business becomes more efficient and easier to operate.

Marketers are like cats, always landing on their feet
‘Q: What do you call someone who graduates at the bottom of their class in marketing? A: Manager’ (Thanks to Larry Kim for sharing that gem.) Here are a few more jokes to brighten your day. At work, we’re always on our toes with projects rolling in and deadlines looming. Why not have a laugh once in a while? We’ve collected these digitally-themed jokes for digital marketers. If you don’t get some humor from these, it’s time to stop what you’re doing and check your pulse! It can be hard for people outside of our industry to understand how difficult it is for us to do what we do day in and day out.

Was that an algorithm? I hate algorithms!
An algorithm is a set of instructions that can be used over and over again to solve a problem or make a decision. A good analogy would be an instruction manual for putting together furniture. Algorithms are often effective, but they’re rarely funny. One of my favorite things about marketing is how human it feels in comparison to algorithms. A lot of people think marketers don’t have a sense of humor, but we actually love cracking jokes just as much as anyone else! (Just take our thoughts on BuzzFeed quizzes). And just like that table you had to put together last weekend, sometimes our jokes don’t go according to plan.

What do you call it when your online marketing runs amok?
Any good digital marketer will tell you that they’ve had at least one project that didn’t go as planned. Whether it was a banner ad that wasn’t approved by a client or an entire email campaign going to spam, there are plenty of reasons why things can go wrong with online marketing. But what do you call it when everything is done properly but it still goes wrong? In truth, there’s no technical term for it and most people in online marketing have simply taken to calling it the butterfly effect. What makes this so humorous is that although we use imagery of chaos to describe any unforeseen online marketing mishap, its real cause is quite simple—just like you learned in middle school science class.

Why does every marketer know their IT guy?
Think of it as a form of natural selection. When things go wrong, they’re forced to fix them—which means they have a strong grasp on technical issues. Plus, if you ever get a headache, who’s going to know what Advil looks like? Having adopted your IT guy is sure to pay off in other ways too. Just watch: Whenever you need help with something, he’ll be there! He’ll even make sure all his friends come around and do chores for you. Or maybe that’s just what happened with me… I think my IT guy has more friends than I do! 😉

My big data told me I shouldn’t wear that today.
According to Gartner Research, there are approximately 1.8 zettabytes of digital data in existence today. (1) Google has more than 30 petabytes of information on users; that’s 30,000 terabytes or 30 million gigabytes! (2) On average, a human creates about 1.5 megabytes of data per second… that’s 10.5 GB per day… and nearly 100TB per year!

How do you confuse a marketer? Put them in front of a mirror.
While it might sound silly, marketers are easily confused. Take a look at SEO tactics and you’ll see what I mean: keywords, meta descriptions, alt tags, cross-linking—it’s enough to make anyone nuts. While all of these tactics can be useful in some situations, there really is no right way to do marketing. So why not use that confusion as an advantage? Confuse your competitors with some strategic keyword juggling and send them spinning in circles with a barrage of unrelated links and details. Give it a try!

Did you hear about the SEO consultant who was caught cheating on his wife?
He was doing his job! SEO consultant xxx, in my book is a hall of fame SEO. His services were legendary. But sometimes, you have to make some sacrifices for your craft, and he made just that…himself. He was caught red-handed cheating on his wife during one of her physical therapy sessions with a client. He had setup all kinds of signals throughout their house that told him when she was home or away so he could maximize his time getting it on while she got it working out with their neighbor, Tom. Damn that Tom! If you know what I mean 😉 Well, here are some more hilarious marketing jokes

What’s another word for Internet marketer? unemployed.
This joke perfectly demonstrates how hilarious some of our industry’s practices are. There’s a fair share of marketing jokes floating around, but we thought we’d start with one that shows there’s a way to be silly without forgetting what you do for a living. And let’s be honest: when was the last time you sat down and really laughed at yourself? We bet it was worth it—and so will these other jokes.
