Ever buy a cool drink from a kids’ lemonade stand on a hot day?
The drink you buy from the child at the end of the block is a microcosm of every business transaction in the world.
You walk up to the tiny stand with the two smiling faces, maybe at the suggestion of your son or daughter, hand over a quarter and gulp down the refreshing liquid.
It’s simple, and yet this brief encounter encapsulates the entire universe of marketing — from advertising and technology to customer relations. It’s got it all there: sales, recommendation of a third party, need for the product, government regulation (or lack thereof), and an emotional connection with the seller. Like the DNA in a cell, the 25-cent purchase of that sugary fruit drink from the child holds the kernel of the most sophisticated business transaction in the world, whether it’s from Donald Trump or Mark Zuckerburg.
Other essential elements are here as well: The motivation of the kids, the energy and ideas needed to drag the table out to the sidewalk, the clumsily-made, misspelled sign that nevertheless gets the message across, and the appeal of the kid as salesperson.
