TWiT comeback on the Horizon

Viewers of the Dropcom, TWiT’s mechanical eye in the sky, were greeted with an unusual sight on Saturday. What was first thought to be a spontaneous game of Ring Around the Rosy, turned out to be the often anonymous sales team holding hands and dancing around the studio. What caused the glee?

Needs help keeping track of his money.

Inside sources reveal that a milestone event was achieved. For the first time in nine months a viewer used┬áthe forgotten offer code TNT. The viewer known as Chickenhead was unavailable for comment, but TWiT founder and propaganda connoisseur had this to say, “I could not be happier with the job Gum is doing, he is knocking it out of the park.” Could this be a sign that the troubled network is poised for a comeback? ┬áNot likely.

  1. I’d jump for glee and joy myself but then I’d realize that I was the one who gave him a pity sale in order to make them feel happy. Those people look so unhappy in their cage, so I thought; why not feed them a treat?

    Seriously those people need to leave for better pastures; pathetic.

  2. What exactly does the sales team do? Doesn’t every show have pretty much the same advertisers that every other podcast has? Harry’s, Gazelle, Squarespace, GoToMeeting, etc. These are all sponsors of Rev3 shows, GeekBeat, even The Young Turks… it seems more like these companies seek out podcasts to advertise on instead of companies seeking them out… Maybe that’s what Leo means when he says stuff like “We really want to do X show and wants to sponsor it!”

    I’m literally shocked that TWiT has a sales TEAM. I thought it was like one person handling offer codes or whatever… there are multiple people working on selling podcasts to advertisers and they still only have the same advertisers that everyone else has? If Leo’s looking to cut back and save some money, you’d think THAT’S where he’d start lookig…

    1. I think the solicit things that fit in more with #Soup and #Tossed(Her)Salad. Things like mattresses, loan sharks, personal finance reports. Maybe they can get Ashley Madison, The Bunny Ranch, and maybe Campbell’s #Soup soon.

    2. Doesn’t shock me. Typically talentless people employ at least one or two underlings to dothe real work of their job, while they “manage the overall picture.”

      I cannot see Leo or Lisa doing a bit of work regarding setting up accounts or even following up with code redemptions. The most I see them doing is flying to a client’s HQ and doing in-person sales pitches, and then going to a nice restauarant and hotel afterwards.

      Nope…I bet there are at least 1 or 2 super young people there (likely female, since middle age women managers tends to prefer women as subordinates) who are only there to “manage accounts” and bring soup and coffee to Mr. and Mrs. Laporte.

    3. You’re correct; why is there even a sales team in the first place? I mean you can certainly do the stuff yourself; you can find advertisers, create sizzle reels, communicate with advertisers yourself so why is there a sales team?

      I’m guessing it must compensate for TWiT’s small penis.
