How to Avoid Misleading Marketing MeasurementOpen in a New Window

Marketers are obsessed with measuring the success of our content programs and campaigns. As we should be – figuring out what’s working and what isn’t is essential to success. But I’ve noticed that many marketers rely on two flawed measurements -- “First Registration” and “Last Click” -- data points for content marketing and paid advertising campaigns that purport to provide insight but instead serve to mislead.

 

Using Buyer Personas To Market and Sell Real EstateOpen in a New Window

Organizations filled with people who take the time to understand the needs of buyers they wish to reach, and then develop information to educate and inform those buyers, are more successful than organizations that just make stuff up. Buyer personas, the distinct demographic groupings of your potential customers, are critically important for successful marketing that leads to sales success.

 

Sonic Branding: The Last Great Untapped OpportunityOpen in a New Window

I co-founded Signature Tones, a sonic branding studio, and I wanted you to be among the first to know about it. It’s crazy exciting to establish a business that combines my marketing geekdom with my massive passion for music. Sonic branding is a wide open and little understood aspect of marketing that has fascinated me for more than a decade. I started the company with my friend Juanito Pascual, a Santa Monica - based touring musician and recording artist.

 

A Legendary Guitar Goes to a Legendary MarketerOpen in a New Window

Last night, my good friend Brian Halligan won Jerry Garcia’s iconic “Wolf” guitar at a charity auction, generating some $3 million for the Southern Poverty Law Center. Brian is co-founder and CEO of HubSpot (I am on the advisory board) and we co-wrote the book Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead: What Every Business Can Learn from the Most Iconic Band in History

 

How To Use Facebook Live For Employee CommunicationsOpen in a New Window

When Facebook launched its Facebook Live video-streaming app last year, I wrote about how important the new tool is for marketers. I shared how I streamed a 20-minute segment of my 2-hour talk about new marketing at the Tony Robbins Business Mastery event in Las Vegas. As people were seeing my live broadcast, they began to share on their own timelines and more and more people started to watch. Tony also shared with his nearly 2.5 million Facebook followers and soon there were over 10,000 people tuned into my Facebook Live broadcast.

 

Don't Blame Technology For Fear Of The NewOpen in a New Window

Fake news is the fault of Facebook! Uber drivers are dangerous! Oh the horror! We’re yet again going through a paranoid cycle where people who should know better are blaming technology for what humans do with it.

 

Personal Privacy Online, Data Condoms, And Protecting Your KidsOpen in a New Window

At the Public Affairs Council Executive Meeting where I delivered a keynote speech titled “Why the Best Marketers Win Elections” I had a chance to interview Nuala O’Connor, @privacymama, President & CEO of the Center for Democracy & Technology, a global nonprofit committed to advancing our digital rights. We spoke about safeguarding your own and your kids’ online privacy.

 

World’s First Real-Time Data Enabled Toilet Paper Holder!Open in a New Window

Yes, there’s an app for that.

I’m intrigued by a new smartphone application called I.O. Toilet from Kimberly-Clark Israel’s Lily brand and innovation agency Gefen Team that automatically monitors your use of toilet paper in real-time, provides data for you to analyze (perhaps while you are sitting on the throne), and even orders more T.P. automatically.  

 

Mastodon Is Better Than Twitter But You Should Ignore ItOpen in a New Window

When a new social network pops up and the defining characteristic is that it is like another social network but better, it’s doomed. Mastodon is the latest cool kids social network “like Twitter but better” and is reported to be experiencing very fast growth. But like others that basically copy what’s already established (Ello and Google Plus come to mind), my guess is that it will not catch on beyond a bunch of very early adopters.

 

Marketing MindfulnessOpen in a New Window

Most marketers are focused way too much on the future. They’re only developing marketing plans and creating programs for next week, next month, and next year. The problem is that these people aren’t taking advantage of what’s happening right now, today, this moment. We need to develop some Marketing Mindfulness to reach buyers when they’re ready.
