Think Like A Journalist Quote
It’s a dialogue, not a monologue, and some people don’t understand that. Social media is more like a telephone than a television. –Amy Jo Martin
“Ideas are easy implementation is hard.” –Guy Kawasaki
Mike started a company when he couldn’t find any product that carefully and easily monitored what was being said online. Hear his career highlight and what lead to his great success.
When It Didn’t Work!
Our biggest fail was not trusting analytics.
Mike didn’t use analytics for the first several years when the company was first formed. Find out what the analytics did for his bounce rate once they started using and paying attention to analytics. Listen to why he wasn’t using analytics and hear what he learned that helped his company grow.
Leverage New Marketing Channels & Avoid Costly Mistakes
- Use forums like Quora, Reddit.
- Engage in forums where people are looking for products.
- Two types of mistakes: companies that engage from the brand profile rather than people working for the brand.
- Bragging about their products. Companies focus on sales rather than actually solving a problem. Instead try to understand the customer and solve the problem by asking questions and listening.
