  • It was my pleasure Chris. I appreciate you taking the time to do the interviews several months back. It was great sharing about the Seventh Generation story with the adtech Tokyo audience here. It was something very new and fresh.

  6. 6. Put the user of your content in the center of it. “Why should we bother with your brand when we’re treated like ‘consumers’? We want something that surprises and challenges us with it’s phenomenal usefulness.”

  13. 13. His book:
  14. 14. "Timely conversations and no 'wasted' advertising. The old shotgun approach using TV, etc. just leads to mental pollution. Social allows us to talk with those who have raised their hand to talk with us.” Chris Middings 7th Gen’s Web Editor
  15. 15. “The Nation asks folks to register to post to our forums, download coupons, etc. We also send them a twice-monthly newsletter. It is a great way to educate them about the other issues in their lives that can be made healthier. Our primary goal is education.”
  16. 16. A final word… Brand is just another word for goodwill. Brand content is just another word for value. CMOs must become social or risk becoming irrelevant.
