Facebook Marketing Lessons from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Thursday, 16 December 2010

If you’d like to go through all 8 of the Facebook Marketing Lessons from Buffy, check out the presentation below. (I go into more detail in the individual blog posts, but this is a nice overview.) And if you happen to run a Buffy conference or event, don’t be shy with the invites. I would love to come and meet fellow fans (Team Spike!) or talk about Facebook marketing, as it relates to Buffy or not.

Facebook Marketing Lessons from Buffy: The Buffy Principle

Thursday, 16 December 2010

Last, but certainly not least, is the Buffster herself. Buffy never ran out of new ways to save the world and was full of all kinds of (often almost illogical) ideas on how to battle demons. But she got it done. Take Glory for instance, Season 5’s Big Bad. Buffy tried hardcore fighting, witchcraft, a robot and a giant hammer before finally jumping into an inter-dimensional portal to save the world…while Giles killed Glory’s other (human) half.

Of course, that combination also killed Buffy, at least for the time being. But as we later find out, she was happy and peaceful in death, knowing her friends were safe. And this wasn’t the first time that Buffy hit the road when things got tough. She moved to LA after having to kill Angel, and Sarah Michelle Gellar was a key player in ending the show after Season 7. She has stated that she wanted to go out while Buffy the Vampire Slayer was on top, and they did. Learn from both Buffy and Sarah, and try something new. But be ready to give it up, too.
