MARKETING MAN: Hello. Welcome to Smarketing Marketing, can I help you?

Ali: Yes, hello. I am hoping you can help with my business.  I need to come up with a name that perfectly captures the range of services and products we sell from our shop.

MARKETING MAN: Of course. Can you give me an idea of what you sell?

Ali: Yes, I will do that. First of all, we are a Barbara Shop.

MARKETING MAN: Sorry? A barber shop?

Ali: No, Barbara. She is an inflatable lady for the pleasure of our customers. We are a Barbara shop.

MARKETING MAN: Barbara shop? Oooooooooooh K, well I have to say I’ve never heard of that. That seems simple enough though.

Ali: But you were also right the first time. Our other line of services is being a Barber shop.

MARKETING MAN: (Laughing) OK a Barbara shop and a Barber shop. That’s going to be a little confusing, but anyway I’m sure we can help.
