Stress is one of those things that can do us in silently. Although it's extremely common (80% of workers in the U.S. report feeling stress, according to the American Institute of Stress), not everyone knows how to deal with it. We can take mental health walks, meditate, exercise more, and socialize with friends and family.

We can also try perusing the net for some funny content if we're feeling down. The Instagram page Meme God is a perfect pick for that. Their content spans from silly to absurd, from funny tweets and signs to hilarious mishaps. So, scroll down if you're feeling stressed and need a good laugh.

Also, check out our interview with social media master Peg Fitzpatrick. Bored Panda reached out to her to learn more about harnessing the power of memes for marketing. It turns out that for marketers, meme fatigue has not set in that deeply yet, so it's a good way for brands to advertise their products. Read our conversation with Peg below!

The kid standing front row, left, is completely in character. He even has an earpiece 😄, and from what I can see he is the only one having one.

Modern times call for modern marketing solutions. The times when you could get someone to buy a product with a fun song or a rhyme are over. Because people spend so much of their time on social media, marketers need to come up with innovative marketing strategies accordingly.

That means that a good social marketer has to be well-versed in Internet culture and its vast array of references nowadays. It's not just about catchy phrases and attention-grabbing taglines. Marketing agency Nerd Collective writes that for this generation, it's all about humanizing brands by speaking the same language as their target audience.

The young generation grew up with the Internet and smartphones, so satirical images and videos are central to Gen Z's language. We only need to look at today's most popular brand on TikTok: Duolingo. The moment the mascot started to twerk and thirst after Dua Lipa, it went straight to the top as one of the most-followed accounts on TikTok.

Nowadays, people want brands to be authentic, and in many cases, that means self-awareness. Like Ryanair's viral videos on TikTok, where they make fun of their own baggage policies and roast their customers. Marketing with memes and jokes on social media often makes brands relatable, and people appreciate the brands' attempts to empathize with their audience's everyday struggles.

Olive a good pizza but they don't leave mushroom for anything else. They're a great way to pesto the time, dough. Enough with the saucy puns, I mozzarella get going before I get panned because my humor is a little crusty.

To learn more about how to harness the power of memes for marketing, we contacted the social media guru Peg Fitzpatrick. She's the author of The Art of Social Media and the upcoming The Art Of Small Business Social Media. Peg says that incorporating memes in a marketing campaign can be a great idea. "Memes are a fun, relatable way to connect with your audience, especially on platforms like Instagram and X (Twitter), where humor and quick, digestible content thrive."

ADVERTISEMENT

Peg explains why the use of memes in marketing can be more effective than other strategies. "They can humanize your brand, making it feel more approachable and in touch with current trends. Plus, memes are highly shareable, which can significantly boost your reach and engagement. However, it's crucial to ensure the memes align with your brand voice and values to maintain authenticity."

ADVERTISEMENT

There are some things brands should be careful with when trying to reach their target audience through memes. Peg says that the biggest risk of using memes in your marketing campaign can be how quickly some memes become outdated and irrelevant. In other cases, people might also misinterpret them. "A meme that’s funny today might be irrelevant or even offensive tomorrow," she cautions.

ADVERTISEMENT

"To mitigate this, stay current with trends and be ready to adapt or retire memes as needed," Peg recommends. "It's also important to understand the cultural context of a meme before using it. Research and, if possible, test the meme with a small segment of your audience to gauge reactions. Always aim for humor that aligns with your brand and avoids sensitive topics."

When I was a child, I was on the school academic team. We made it to state and after we played in that, we went to a steakhouse. One kid got her steak so raw that if it had been any more raw it would still be on the cow.

Peg mentions two brands that, in her eyes, are standouts when it comes to using memes to their advantage – Wendy's and Netflix. "Their social media team brilliantly uses memes and witty commentary to engage with their audience, often in real-time," she says about Wendy's.

"[Netflix] consistently use[s] memes to promote their shows in a way that feels genuine and in tune with their audience," she also notes. "Both brands demonstrate how understanding your audience and having a quick, creative response can make meme marketing highly effective."

"Memes are a powerful tool in the right hands," Peg concludes. "The key is to be genuine, stay relevant, and always consider your brand's voice and audience. When done right, memes can be a delightful addition to your marketing strategy, bringing humor and humanity to your brand."

Perhaps one of the best recent examples of genius marketing with memes is the zero-waste brand Bambaw. They harnessed the virality of the recent beef between rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar and used the 'BBL Drizzy' snippet for one of their videos on TikTok with the tagline "Unlike Drake, our products are natural and plastic-free."

ADVERTISEMENT

The DTC marketing agency applauded this creative tactic, saying that it works because it's culturally relevant, it's bound to generate engagement, and it presents the reason why the brand stands out in the market in a fun way.

Isn't it "Just because you're guilty doesn't mean you did it"? Because that can happen.
