The Mullet Strategy

I was perusing some blogs this morning when I came across a link to a previous post on one of my favorite sites, BuzzFeed. The link immediately caught my eye simply because it was entitled THE MULLET STRATEGY. Now, I love mullets. And I also really enjoy strategy. What could be better than combining the two, right? Well, that's what a lot of commonly frequented websites have been thinking too! Some of the most common sites on the web have adopted this approach to web design in order to make a more user-friendly site.

As we know, the mullet is all about "business in the front, party in the back". Sites like CNN, YouTube, and MySpace are embracing the Mullet Strategy by lettting users comment, quarrel, and party on secondary pages while editors keep the front pages looking very business professional. The advertisers stay happy since they have a professional looking front page to promote AND the users stay happy because they still have a place to rant and rave. Looks like The Mullet is doing good all over the world!

Check out some links below for more info about the Mullet Strategy. Also, if you have some time, check out some of the above mentioned sites to see if you can detect the Mullet Strategy in action.

And of course, some mullet photos for your enjoyment:
