As it is now October, we thought it would be a great time to take a look at some frightening things we’ve noticed that creep into the marketing world. Let’s take an honest look at some strengths and weaknesses, and reflect on how we might learn and grow from these blunders.

We’re told that we operate in either a B2B sphere, or a B2C sphere. But when it comes down to it, we all operate in a P2P sphere; that is, we build businesses based on Person-to-Person relationships. Without people, there is no business or customer!

So, how are we—as a whole—approaching these relationships? (more…)

“Do You Think You’re Better Than Me?”

Posted by admin in Uncategorized | October 3, 2014

The following is a clip out of Lucas Mack‘s book, Everyone Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Face.

I sometimes get asked to speak at schools, and I make sure to give them one specific message. I ask how many of them have ever heard or said to someone the following question, “Do you think you’re better than me?” I ask them to raise their hands if they’ve been the recipients of that question. The majority of the hands usually go up. I then ask a follow-up question, “How many of you feel your first reaction is to say no?” The majority of the hands still rise. Herein lies the problem to achieving our dreams: fear of our audience rejecting our story. (more…)

Study Reveals YouTube as Paid Advertising
Winner

Posted by admin in Social Media | September 27, 2014

The social media paid advertising battle is over. It turns out YouTube is the clear winner.

An Aol Platforms study was released earlier this month, and revealed some surprising information about the advertising champion.

The report used Convertro’s attribution technology to track social purchase interactions. 500 million clicks and 15 million conversions were analyzed during the first quarter of 2014 to determine what online purchases were affected by social media platforms and at what point a purchasing decision was influenced.

One of the main findings in the study is that YouTube’s biggest strength lies in introducing products and closing the sale.

surviving a PR crisis using social media

It’s no secret that social media has drastically changed the rules of PR and crisis management. Social media can magnify and accelerate the way a company crisis spreads.

Most would agree that most companies, organizations, foundations, and corporations have experienced or will at some point experience a PR crisis. While social media has introduced a channel for news to spread rapidly, it has also given companies the tools and means to handle PR crises in new ways and with equal speed.

Book Snippet: You Have Power

Posted by admin in Uncategorized | September 6, 2014

The following is a clip out of Lucas Mack‘s book, Everyone Has a Plan Until They Get Punched in the Face.

How does the media have so much power?

The people in the media present themselves as the experts and produce content to an audience that is waiting to receive their stories. At a basic level, you are no different, but the game is changing. The broadcast, mass communication model worked well for television in particular and produced a lot of revenue for each station. A big reason it was so successful was because in the early years of broadcast TV, there weren’t many players in the game. Your options were ABC, NBC, or CBS, or later, FOX. (more…)

This involves utilizing data to deliver instant messaging through automation in technology so you can quickly respond to what the customer wants via ads and marketing collateral.
