Way back in prehistoric times even cave dwellers used business card marketing to promote their products. Marvin and Bubba 2 cave men entrepreneurs decided to call their little enterprise Amrock and used a piece of rock and chiseled their information onto the rock.
Bubba handed out several cards to potential clients and he had some positive results but people complained of the weight and inconvenience. So you know Bubba was the inventor type so he knew there had to be an easier way to get his message out. He remembered a friend of his from the old neighborhood used to take a piece of tree( which he called paper) and mashed up some berries and used the juice to write on the paper with his fingers.
Bubba refined this process and instead of using his fingers, he used a feather from a bird. This worked great and soon he was handing out his cards to people all over the area. Marvin made the cards better by adding pictures and better quality writing. It wasn’t long before word got out about Bubba and Marvins business and their new found way of promoting their products.
Their only big problem was being real careful not to get eaten by a dinosaur while out canvassing. Even though they wanted to get the word out about their products that could help mankind, the danger of getting eaten by a dinosaur was always there. Bubba eventually devised a way to pass out cards without risking his life too much. He used decoys to take the dinosaurs attention away from him so he could market his products..
