  • 11. Although Technology (like Social Media) is changing how we define and interact with our network,
  • 12. The goal is the same -
    to increase our connections and expand our radius of influence.
  • 13. Social Media Effect on Traditional Marketing
    Paradigm Shift - from “Trying to Sell” to “Making Connections”
    Outbound - Traditional or Outbound Marketing is a marketing strategy that focuses on finding customers by building brand awareness through advertising and promotion. Selling is the process and the sale is the goal. You have to have buy, beg, or bug your way in.
    Inbound- Inbound marketing is a marketing strategy that focuses on getting found by customers. Marketers "earn their way in" by publishing helpful information on a blog, being recommended by a customer, or being a good corporate citizen of the world.
    This relationship with the customer/client is the key to getting recommendations and referrals from the client, which is the gold standard of credibility for your product or service.

  • 15. Likeonomicsis a term that explains the new affinity economy where the most likeable people, ideas and organizations are the ones we believe in, buy from and get inspired by.
  • 16. Word of Mouth Advertising
    Most Trusted by Internet Users
  • 17. The Thank You Economy by Gary Vaynerchuk
    Social media is not a new way of doing business, but brings us back to the days of our grandparents when businesses were successful based on word of mouth. The store owner had to make every person that walked through the door feel like he or she mattered and thank the customer for their business.
    To successfully build meaningful relationships requires that business leaders start really caring about their customers and start thinking like small-town shop owners.
  • 18. Inbound Marketing isn’t new,
    It’s just back in fashion.
    Relationship Marketing differs from other forms of marketing in that it recognizes the long term value of relationships and extends communication beyond intrusive advertising and sales promotional messages.
