Seth Godin argues the Internet has ended mass marketing and revived a human social unit from the distant past: tribes. Founded on shared ideas and values, tribes give ordinary people the power to lead and make big change. He urges us to do so.
What people really want is the ability to connect to each other, not to companies. So the permission is used to build a tribe, to build people who want to hear from the company because it helps them connect, it helps them find each other, it gives them a story to tell and something to talk about.
Instead of looking for customers for your products, you seek out products (and services) for the tribe. #tribebuilding
Tribes encourages us all to think differently about leadership and why now, more than ever, we have an opportunity to lead. Take a risk, back yourself and learn why it’s easier than ever to change everything. Watch the TED Talk Here
A market plan identifies (through market research) unmet needs in the marketplace and provides a strategic guideline as to how the organization intends to provide an offering (product or service) to fulfill these needs while generating a profitable rate of return. It will indicate the position, or market “niche”, for the organization and identify the necessary resources to implement the marketing strategy. And finally, the market plan becomes a useful benchmark for which to measure the success of the organization’s marketing strategies. #marketplan #marketingplan
