Great post on Hee-Haw marketing. Comforting to see more are seeing the change..

Please read it!

Here are some great parts out of that post:

 So, the picture should be even clearer. Advertising is dead, but marketing isn’t. We’ve started to adapt to this new environment by doing the only thing we could do, stop advertising, and just embrace the humanity of it all.

Now, we’ve become conversationalists, trying desperately to elicit some response where before we simply ignored it. And that’s a good thing. The implication is that we no longer own it or control it. Now we earn it.

While “targeting” the right consumers is more important than ever, our focus is expanding to trust, to improving the lives of our customers. It’s evidenced when you hear ad:tech attendees like Carver say, “The first question that should be hardwired in our product skulls is how will this help someone do something better, or faster or with more enjoyment…my mom, myself, my friends, etc. If we didn’t believe in our technology and the effort then there would be no enjoyment in bringing an app to market. In the end today’s market and media should be about many levels of choice and the opportunity to participate at whatever level a person finds most rewarding.”

As Harold Mann of Mann Consulting said, “But those that definitely work to improve people’s lives tend to make money more easily. When the money is the byproduct of the work and not the reason for it, it is easier to sustain one’s career.”

Contribution Marketing

Contribution Marketing is the activity of focusing on creating intrinsic ‘product’ value with the purpose to contribute to individuals, groups and this planet. The coming years competitive advantage is created purely by right brain activities: creativity, intuition, communication and a holistic view of the world. This blog is about releasing the strength of the right side brain within businesses. It shows ways to create new value in an emotional driven world. This blog has the ambition to support companies to reach their true potential.

Companies applying Contribution Marketing see themselves as a part of society(instead of isolated closed entities) with a clear definition of their role on how to contribute to this society. These companies are not primarily focussed on growth, more profit or marketshare increase. These companies are focussed on creating TRUE(e.g. not aspirational) value to a group and extract sufficient value to be able to keep facilitating their selected group of people.

“Self Actualization is the intrinsic growth of what is already in the organism, or more accurately, of what the organism is.”
Maslow

A COMPANY AT BEST CAN BE ITSELF
