Facebook Marketing Lessons from Buffy the Vampire Slayer No, really. If you're curious there's an interview with the author or you could explore these blog posts which further examine the Buffy, Faith, Giles, Angel , Cordelia, Xander, Willow and Spike Principles.

Hmm. I always took the Spike Principle to be, "Tell the truth, especially if it's evil and/or funny."

That's a marketing strategy that probably won't catch on quite so fast.
Okay the Mayor was evil but he was never undead. He wasn't even dead dead. Until he was.
Uh, "Viewers may have grown to love Angel, but never as much as Buffy"?

I'm surprisingly annoyed by having a picture of Willow with "Be Predictable!" on it because...Willow managed to predictably not flay anyone for almost six seasons? HOW PREDICTABLE. And yeah, it was pretty dismissive of Angel.

I do like some of the insights--especially on Buffy's resourcefulness.
