IS IT TIME TO KISS YOUR MARKETING GOODBYE

Alexandria Joy - Monday, May 12, 2014

It doesn’t matter what you make, write, craft, code, film, engineer, perform, produce, paint, invent, teach or build…at some point in your career or business lifecycle, you’ve probably experienced this.

You make something truly, utterly brilliant. You feel a buzz of excitement about it and you put it out there for the world to consume. And as you wait for the phone to ring, cash register to cha-ching or offers to bring wealth through your door, you realise you are hearing...

Nothing.

Yep that's right, the world has responded with absolute silence. Zip, nada, rien (it's French look it up).

It's deadly and it hurts. Which leaves you to wonder, is this thing called marketing all it's cracked up to be?

If you’ve ever died inside from the deafening silence and you're wondering if it's time to kiss your marketing goodbye, you’ll appreciate today’s episode of UQTV.

I love that term "brand community." And anything Seth rocks. I think your key is "common interest." Interests are so scattered, and therefore more than ever have to be niched. Great video, thanks.

Yes Sue Seth is great - simple, clear and powerful.
And I agree finding the niche of common interest is what often brings people together. Thanks for commenting!

Very true Heidi, I think in music it's about creating what's known as a "Street Team" who are basically volunteers who LOVE the artist their telling the world about.

The idea of creating tribes has always fascinated me and I think there could be a couple that I can create on we've spoken about already with "Seniors Kind" businesses and the other for morning tea shows for the seniors.

Two separate tribes but both would be very powerful none the less... Great work and ideas as always :-)

Great video! I am one of those Apple Tribe Members. It's funny, I was at a convention and you could put your biz card in a bowl to win different prizes. I ONLY put mine in for Apple products ;-) My tribe is for high achieving women who want to reignite the fun they had as a kid. The Dirty Virgin Sisterhood is "Playtime for Big Girls" and we too have an online private membership as well as Dirty Virgin Parties that women host. It's FUN!!!
