Marketing Strategist

This place is all about marketing.

(But, not the kind of marketing you’re used to.)

Here, the world of marketing is being redefined and reinvented.

We’re shaking it up and doing it differently.

We’ve found a better way.

Here, marketing is not just a stack of sales strategies and taglines.

It’s not a to-do list or a 10-step formula.

Here, marketing is bigger than all of that. It’s an ongoing conversation.

It’s detailed and fascinating.

It gets to the very heart of what makes us all tick.

Here, the field of marketing is really the study of human beings.

So, there’s no assembly line advice or a one-size-fits-all approach.

It’s more elegant and nuanced than that.

Here, we believe that marketing exists in every piece of your company culture… the way you lead, the way you design your products, and the way you serve your customers.

So, marketing must be an ongoing discussion, a continuous examination of how to provide the most value, how to lead with integrity, and how to connect with those who matter most.

Here, we have those conversations.

We ask a lot of big questions..

What does the customer want (that they’re afraid to say out loud)?

How do we get their attention?

How can we serve better?

How can our industry improve?

And, we ask the challenging, in-depth questions…

What makes us change, speak up, join a cause, evolve, or learn?

What’s at the core of our decisions?

Where’s the uncharted territory, and how do we lead others there?

How to we best connect with the world around us?

And because we ask the right questions, we start to recognize that great marketing ideas and great business practices reach into many areas of life.

Here, we believe that marketing, psychology and philosophy are inextricably connected.

And when we combine ideas from these 3 fields, the result is not only products and services that fly off the shelves, but messaging that resonates in the hearts and minds of our customers.

This approach to marketing is what brings people together, creates movements, builds lasting business success, and commands industry influence.

This kind of marketing starts from a greater understanding of who we are and what we want.

Here we believe that marketing, at it’s core, is what drives our world forward.

Because, when done right, marketing means brilliant communication, innovation, problem-solving and the creation of opportunities.

With marketing like this, businesses are in the unique position to make our highest hopes of the planet an almost immediate reality.

So here, marketing is not only about products and profits, it’s about change and how to build a better life for all.

how to snowball results

Here’s what most brands do… They work hard on a product, service, book, or idea. They build the website. They hammer out the delivery. They set their launch date. They even add the pièce de résistance… And then they release it. They spend time, energy, and money presenting their work to the world. Maybe they buy…

may the smartest marketer win…

The marketing world is a bit like a kitchen sink… And, by kitchen sink I mean a sink FULL of everything in your kitchen. Overflowing. Jam-packed. Overwhelming. Full. It’s like the kitchen sink that you witness on Thanksgiving at 9pm.  Ya know, the sink that makes you want to eat those last 3 pieces of pumpkin…

The house that money built

The house that money built

Does money bring happiness? That’s one hell of a question. My gut response is always, “No, certainly you can be happy without money.” The happiest moments of my life have had absolutely nothing to do with money. But, then again… All other things being equal, I’d choose money over no money every time. Because, being…

Why We Procrastinate

Why We Procrastinate

Procrastination. It can be our worst enemy, always keeping us from doing what’s most important. It hangs there, blocking us from success, keeping us in unhealthy situations, and preventing us from experiencing our fullest potential. Procrastination can seem like a frustrating mystery. Why would we put off doing important work? Why do we stall and…

unleash the eager

We are born eager. Enthusiastic. We are born with the capacity to have our minds blown on the regular. We are easily excited. Easily psyched. We are overflowing with energy. As kids, we run as fast as we can. We laugh really hard, at everything. Nothing can slow us down. Because we’re eager. We’re explorers,…

the two boulders you need to start rolling

To get the word out about your business… To share your talents… To get more folks on board with your goals… You have to always be rolling two boulders forward. Some people prefer to focus on one. Some prefer to focus on the other. But, you have to roll them both. Ignore one, and you’ll…
