MarketingFacts – Brian Solis (Salesforce): “Marketing kan zich heruitvinden als Customer Experience discipline”

MarketingFacts – Brian Solis (Salesforce): “Marketing kan zich heruitvinden als Customer Experience discipline”

While in Brussels, I had a very welcome opportunity to speak with Matthijs van den Broek, MarketingFacts: Innovative in Marketing, after all of these years. What a pleasure! In aanloop naar The Next Web 2022 (vandaag en gisteren) sprak ik met Brian Solis, keynote speaker, onderzoeker, ex-Altimeter. Een mooi weerzien, na een jaar of 12. De carrière van Solis is tot nu toe best indrukwekkend, niet alleen gezien waar hij nu staat (high-end adviseur van Marc Benioff bij Salesforce). Hij…

Forging Undisruptable Bonds Between Brands and Consumers

Forging Undisruptable Bonds Between Brands and Consumers

By Mark Burgess, author, The New Marketing: How to Win in the Digital Age There’s an old story about two men having an earnest conversation about the future. One is nervous about what’s coming, while the other seems oddly unperturbed. When asked how he can be so calm, the unbothered man motions for his friend to pull a book down off the shelf called “Future Facts.” The man cracks the book and is bewildered by what he sees. “All of the…

The End of Traditional Marketing and the Beginning of What’s Next

The End of Traditional Marketing and the Beginning of What’s Next

Congratulations to Carlos Gil on the release of his new book, “The End of Marketing: Humanizing your brand in the age of social media.” Carlos is a long-time friend and I was genuinely appreciative when he asked me to write the foreword for his first book. All I asked was that I could share the foreword with you upon the book’s release. I hope it helps you! This is the end of what was and the beginning of what’s next…

Three Brand Storytelling Misconceptions That Are Holding You Back

Three Brand Storytelling Misconceptions That Are Holding You Back

Guest Post by Ekaterina Walter and Jessica Gioglio In the era of the connected digital consumer, brand storytelling needs to undergo a radical shift. For many companies, brand storytelling has become a buzzword, a way to support marketing campaigns or polished commercials. So much so, that we’ve lost our focus on the heart and soul of brand storytelling. It’s time we took the BS out of brand storytelling and focus on what truly matters: building the meaningful and relevant connections…

Why Processing Emotions Together Matters in Business

Why Processing Emotions Together Matters in Business

Guest post by Patti Sanchez (@PattiSan), co-author of the new book “Illuminate: Change Through Speeches, Stories, Ceremonies, and Symbols” (with Nancy Duarte @NancyDuarte) In business, as in life, the one thing that’s constant is change. In our personal lives, babies lose their teeth and grow adult ones. We have our first day of school then eventually graduate. We meet someone whom we someday marry and have children with. In our professional lives, we work toward big goals that result in…

We all talk of innovation, but few us start with innovation in our own work

We all talk of innovation, but few us start with innovation in our own work

Photo Credit: Brian Fanzo I don’t normally share things like this, but…I’ve had a heck of a week. On Monday, I released what I would consider my most significant research to date on the subject of digital transformation, “The Race Against Digital Darwinism: Six Stages of Digital Transformation.” I also spent traveled to San Diego (SMMW), Las Vegas (SAS) and Huntington Beach (WCPRSA). Not the most extreme mileage in comparison to previous trips, but each event, was in its own way, unforgettable….

Social Business is the Sum of Social Media Marketing, Social Customer Service, Social Selling and More

Social Business is the Sum of Social Media Marketing, Social Customer Service, Social Selling and More

Customers and employees are still underserved and underappreciated. Some would say, in business, social media lost its way. Others would argue social media failed to live up to the hype. There are unfortunately still many examples of businesses not getting it, viewing or outsourcing it as a mere “marketing” function, and operating in siloes where social becomes anti-social by design. Without purpose and collaboration, social will always be just another thing that businesses use to defer the inevitable…change. Even though…

Attention is a Precious Commodity: Earn it and Spend it Wisely

There’s an oft-shared quote that I’d also love to share with you here, “If I had more time, I would have written you a shorter letter.”  French mathematician, physicist, writer and philosopher Blaise Pascal essentially captured the essence of thoughtful and purposeful communication with a bold but confusing statement in 1657. At first blush, his words almost seem counter-intuitive. I mean after all, how can spending more time writing a letter equate to its downsizing? That’s the point. Think about…
