As a B2B marketer, you strive to inspire happy, loyal customers to advocate for you.

Why? Because new buyers are well over halfway through their purchasing decision before they even talk to you. They are out there, beyond your control, and educating themselves by talking to your existing customers and fans.

If you aren’t doing some form of advocate marketing, your message won’t carry through.

In honor of 2014’s Big Game, we put together this list of classic Football Movie archetypes to convey the different ways marketers engage customers and build true, mutually beneficial partnerships with them.

  • 1. The 8 Kinds of Marketers Football Movie Edition
  • 2. As a B2B marketer, you strive to inspire happy, loyal customers to advocate for you. Why?  Because  new  buyers  are  well  over  halfway  through   their  purchasing  decision  before  they  even  talk  to  you.  They   are  out  there,  beyond  your  control,  and  educa=ng   themselves  by  talking  to  your  exis=ng  customers  and  fans.   If you aren’t doing some form of advocate marketing, your message won’t carry through. In honor of 2014’s Big Game, we put together this list of classic Football Movie archetypes to convey the different ways marketers engage customers and build true, mutually beneficial partnerships with them.
  • 3. The Cheerleader Bring It On As a marketing cheerleader, you thrive on the enthusiasm of your community and know exactly what to do to enhance it. You have a unique gift for rallying your customers and genuinely pumping them up about what they are doing. Social media is your program of choice, and you live for the day that your content goes viral. Bring it on, indeed.
  • 4. The Coach Any Given Sunday They  call  you  coach.  You  inspire  your  customers  with   educa=on,  knowledge  and  thought  leadership.  You  take   pride  in  really  understanding  your  customers  and  what   they  go  through  day  in  and  day  out,  and  you  feel  a   responsibility  to  help  them  learn  from  each  other.   Whether  you  blog  to  a  crowd  or  speak  to  an  audience,   one  of  your  greatest  sources  of  pride  is  in  hearing  that   simple  response,  “Thanks!  That  was  helpful.”  
  • 5. Does  anybody  truly  embody  the  no=on  of  “advocate”   more  than  a  sports  agent?  You  treat  your  customers   like  gold,  while  simultaneously  figh=ng  on  their  behalf   any  way  you  can.  You  know  that  for  them  to  truly   excel,  you  may  have  to  push  them  from  =me  to  =me  –   and  you  understand  the  nuanced  way  of  doing  that   honestly  and  effec=vely.  To  you,  every  customer  is   special  and  deserving  of  nothing  but  the  best,  and  you   make  it  your  mission  to  help  them  achieve  110%.   The AGENT Jerry Maguire
  • 6. Some=mes  the  best  doesn’t  always   rise  to  the  top.  As  a  marketer,  you   know  this  happens  quite  a  lot.  That’s   why  you  are  out  there,  talking  to   people  every  day,  searching  for  the   the  hidden  gems  in  your  customer   base.  Once  you  iden=fy  them,  you   help  them  shine  –  giving  them   opportuni=es  to  share  their  story   with  the  world  and  posi=on   themselves  as  experts  in  their  field.   Years  later  you  look  back  and  think  to   yourself,  “Yeah…  I  found  that   superstar.  That  was  me.”   The Hidden Talent The Waterboy
  • 7. The Quarterback Heaven Can Wait You  are  the  top  dog.  The  big  kahuna.  The  cream  of  the   crop.  Everyone  knows  you  are  good  –  check  that  –  the   best.  They  see  you  as  a  beacon  of  light,  raining  wisdom   and  sunlight  down  throughout  the  industry.  You  are  a   powerhouse  among  your  peers,  and  you  inspire  your   customers  through  your  sheer  presence.  With  this  great   power,  of  course,  comes  great  responsibility,  and  it  is  a   responsibility  you  are  proud  to  bear.  Shine  brightly,  oh   quarterback.  People  are  depending  on  you.  
  • 8. The True Believer Rudy You  are  a  marketer  with  a  mission.  You  carry  great  passion  for  the  problems  you  are   helping  your  customers  solve,  and  that  enthusiasm  seeps  from  your  pores  like  smoke   from  fire.  You  are  a  catalyst  to  everyone  around  you,  inducing  change  in  areas  no   one  ever  expected.  You  may  not  realize  it,  but  people  look  up  to  you  for  your   integrity  and  singularity  of  purpose.  Your  honest  love  of  the  game  influences  your   customers,  inspiring  them  to  overcome  obstacles  and  achieve  success.  
  • 9. The Fighter North Dallas Forty Business  is  war,  and  your  customers  are  out  there  every   day  on  the  front  lines.  You  are  a  fighter,  and  your  most   important  job  is  to  arm  your  customers  with  the  tools  and   techniques  they  need  to  crush  their  compe=tors.   Something  standing  in  your  way?  Annihilate  it.  Flanked   from  the  right?  Adapt  and  advance.  As  a  marketer  you   understand  that  the  bonds  forged  in  baXle  are  extremely   powerful.  So  you  do  everything  you  can  to  give  your   customers  the  compe==ve  edge  they  need  to  win.  
  • 10. The Mascot Behind the Mascot Marke=ng  is  about  one-­‐to-­‐one   rela=onships  –  a  philosophy  you  live   and  breathe  every  day.  Heard  good   news  about  someone?  You  give  them  a   call.  One  of  your  customers  said   something  nice  about  you  to  someone   else?  You  send  a  thank-­‐you  note.   When  problems  happen  you  are  the   one  that  your  customers  rely  on  to   help  them  through  it.  You  are  a   dependable  presence  throughout  your   customer  base,  and  have  earned  the   respect  of  your  community  one   individual  at  a  =me.
