"In order to succeed into today's competitive digital landscape, companies must leverage mobile enterprise technologies while engaging in social media cross-channel in agile content marketing blah blah blah."

Sorry, marketers. We can’t hear you, because we have collectively, actively stopped listening. Your ads, your overloaded websites, your sponsored content, your "infotainment series"—these are not the things we want or need. What we need, dear people, is for you to pause … and breathe. Stop treating every day like a fire drill. Momentarily ignore the shiny new trends. Instead, take a look at the things that are (still) fundamentally broken. Your message is splintered. Your teams are siloed. Your technology is backwards. Your content still sucks.

So let's sit down together and talk about a whole new world of marketing, one where pragmatism and principle drive a new kind of innovation: fixing what's actually broken, versus finding new things to break.

  • Best thing I saw at SXSW, Kristina, and I'm glad you had a decent-sized audience.

    'Fix your shit' is top of my 2014 objectives now.

  • @KristinaHalvorson I had to look in a dictionary to understand the term 'squishy'. If I got it right the German expression would be:'wischiwaschi',-)) (means something like: unprecise) Yes you are right the term 'empathy' is squishy, but for me it it makes a good job in indicating what kind of mindset is needed.
    I am evangelising the need of buyer persona development to my German clients heavily. This term - unfortunately – is even more squishy and most of what is spread about buyer personas over the internet isn´t helpul as well. Although I am a big fan of Adele Revella and the five rings of insights. That´s the approach I use when I do persona interviews.
    As I read the term 'empathy' as beeing a most needed skill for content marketer I could connect it to buyer persona research. May be that´s why it made a lot of sense to me.

    And it seems your experience is quite similar to mine when you say: 'I work with so many companies who move forward based on assumptions about where they should invest their time and resources, rather than hearing the hard truths from their customers (e.g. 'Your commercials are cute, but your website checkout process sucks.')'

    Let´s stay patient and may be we need to start teaching our clients what 'empathy' should be all about in content marketing.

  • @kontextb2b Yes, I agree, to a point: the problem is that the word 'empathy' is so squishy. I believe what we need to focus on is actual customer research—like, talking to our customers about what they need, what they want. I work with so many companies who move forward based on assumptions about where they should invest their time and resources, rather than hearing the hard truths from their customers (e.g. 'Your commercials are cute, but your website checkout process sucks.')

    Go Home Marketing, You Are Drunk Go Home Marketing, You Are Drunk Presentation Transcript

    • According to a recent poll of various web-based media producers, content could be hotter, more social, more shareable. “While there is certainly buzzworthy content out there, some of which is even snackable, Go home marketing, you are drunk. I do think content in general could be more relevant, more bite-size, and make a stronger brand impression with trending keywords and a more responsive design,” poll respondent Mark Zeligman told reporters, noting that the last piece of content he came across was an infographic that was neither flexible, timely, viral, nor engineered to maximize reader engagement. “After all, can we honestly say the content that’s out there right now is as buzzworthy and highly shareable as it could be? Does it inform, engage, and convert? Is it digestible? Does it both increase Kristina @Halvorson impressions and amplify the brand?
