The New School of Marketing
In the early days of the internet, marketing pioneer Seth Godin predicted "we are entering an era that's going to change the way almost everything is marketed to almost everybody." His prediction is still accurate today.
Because of this constant state of change, school is always in session and learning never ends. Don't get fooled by someone who claims to know it all.
Marketing is not a discrete function or set of tasks for your organization. It is not just a logo, a brochure, or a tweet. The American Marketing Association defines today's marketing as an educational process. It is a storytelling journey that involves creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.
This educational process of exchanging value applies to every sector and stakeholder. Nonprofit leaders email newsletters to their constituents who have opted-in to receive online communications. Businesses, large and small, use social media to communicate directly with their customers. And city government agencies partner with crowdsourcing mobile phone apps to manage public services like pothole repair.
