Social Media Marketing: Can you compete with your customer’s mom?
At MarketingSherpa Email Summit 2013, I interviewed our keynote speaker – Jay Baer, President, Convince&Convert – about the book he was writing. Youtility: Why Smart Marketing is about Help not Hype will be released in two weeks, so we’re sharing that interview with you now …
A few key takeaways from Jay …
1:00 – Brands have to compete with customers’ friends and family on social media and in email.
1:27 – So how are you going to compete with friends and family? Just be useful.
1:41 – Make your marketing a benefit, not a burden.
2:16 – Hilton Worldwide’s instruction to employees monitoring social media – “Pay attention to Twitter. If you can find a place you can help, just help.”
3:02 – The difference between helping and selling makes all the difference.
