The Spinutech Paid Media Team Plays: Would You Rather? By Cody See on March 19, 2018 in Digital Marketing How do you build team rapport with members in three different locations? You play Would You Rather, of course.That's what we've done here at Spinutech. The paid media team has an always-active group chat going in Google Hangouts. When one of us thinks of a good Would You Rather question, we share and see which everyone would rather do.Here are some of our best questions, but not just the questions. We've also included our answers, and most importantly, our rationale.Would you rather get attacked by a porcupine or sprayed by a skunk? Team Member Porcupine Attack Skunk Sprayed Brandon X Cody X Dave X Pat X Tyler X Wes X BrandonSkunk.I've always dreamed of taking a tomato bath.CodySkunk for me.A porcupine attack sounds painful. The worst-case scenario with a skunk is smelling bad.DaveSprayed by a skunk.Porcupine quills look brutal. I'd rather take a tomato bath.PatI'd go with the skunk.Once people got used to the smell I could start running during lunch and not worry about BO bothering anyone.TylerAttacked by a porcupine.I just couldn't deal with that smell.WesPorcupine.Skunks can spray you from a distance. Porcupines can only hurt you if you touch their quills (they can't throw / shoot the quills), and I'm pretty sure I'm faster than a porcupine, so I should be able to avoid being poked.Would you rather spend the majority of your day working on ad creative (that is, writing ads and coming up with the right message) or focusing on campaign optimization (crunching numbers, changing bids)? Team Member Ad Creative Campaign Optimization Brandon X Cody X Dave X Pat X Tyler X Wes X BrandonAd copy.The process is more personalized. I love all my ads equally, but when one goes on to be successful, it feels rewarding.CodyOptimization.Being creative is exhausting. I could crunch numbers all day.DaveCampaign optimization.There's much more flexibility with optimizations, there are many places you can look to optimize. Ad copy, not so much.PatOptimizations.I could sit in Excel and look at data all day.TylerI want to lean towards optimization.While I do enjoy being creative, I enjoy optimizing campaigns and being analytical more. It comes more naturally to me.WesAd creative.While I have skill and experience with both creative and data, I favor the creative if I have to choose. Especially once you can shift into the right "mindset", the creative can start to generate some great ideas.Would you rather walk like a baby every time you walk or talk like a baby every time you talk? Team Member Baby Walk Baby Talk Brandon X Cody X Dave X Pat X Tyler X Wes - - BrandonTalk.Because stairs.CodyTalk.I think that, in a different life, I could have been a monk. I'd just take a vow of silence and no one would have to know I have a baby voice.DaveWalk.People may see it as cute or funny. Over time talking like a baby may become frustrating for people.PatI think I have to go with walking like a baby.But I hope there's some kind of loophole that says I can still run / bike / skip as I normally would.TylerWalk like a baby every time I walk.First off, either scenario is equally hilarious and life ruining. You wouldn't be able to function as an adult. Everyone would think you're drunk in either situation! So, I'd rather look hilarious when I walk vs. mumbling and saying random things.WesCan babies even walk? Aren't they called toddlers at that point? I'm going to use semantics to avoid having to pick an answer on this question.If you weren't on the paid media team, would you rather be on the SEO team or development team? Team Member SEO Development Brandon X Cody X Dave X Pat X Tyler X Wes X BrandonWeb Development.Web development is pretty incredible to me. I often times think, "Why isn't there an app for that?" and having the ability to carry out those ideas would be awesome.CodyDevelopment.I actually started with SEO and later switched to media buying. Development would be entirely new, which sounds fun.DaveDevelopment.I enjoy creating. SEO is too slow paced.PatProbably dev.But only if I get one of those sweet vertical monitors.TylerDevelopment.I've always wanted to learn it more and be able to code an entire website completely from scratch, not using a template as a base.WesSEO.Both would be fun. Probably SEO because of the overlap with paid = getting up to speed faster... also, I'm told SEO often relies on magic, and who doesn't like magic?Would you rather eat a hot dog with a hamburger bun or eat a hamburger with a hot dog bun? Team Member Dog w/ Burger Bun Burger w/ Dog Bun Brandon X Cody X Dave X X Pat - - Tyler X X Wes X* BrandonHot dog / hamburger bun.I'm uncomfortable even thinking of a hamburger on a hot dog bun.CodyBurger with a hot dog bun.It has nothing to do with the bun, really. I just like burgers more than hot dogs. But if it DID have to do with the buns, I would still say burgers. A hot dog on a hamburger bun leaves way too much extra bread.DaveEither.Either works for me. If it fits, it ships, to my belly!PatThe idea of eating a hamburger with a hot dog bun is so absurd I can't answer this question properly.TylerEither.At the end of the day, a bun is a bun and I personally know from experience during college that either scenario works just fine. If eating hot dogs is wrong, I don't want to be right...Wes*Hot dog on a piece of romaine lettuce.I have discovered that hot dogs (with toppings) pretty much taste the same on the lettuce as they do on the bun, so I'd just as soon avoid eating the bland bread and save more room in my stomach for the good stuff!Do you have a good Would You Rather?
