THE 95 THESES2- Markets consist of human beings, not demographic sectors.6 - The Internet is enabling conversations among human beings thatwere simply not possible in the era of mass media.12 - There are no secrets. The networked market knows more thancompanies do about their own products. And whether the news isgood or bad, they tell everyone.16 -Already, companies that speak in the language of the pitch, thedog-and-pony show, are no longer speaking to anyone.28 - Most marketing programs are based on the fear that the marketmight see whats really going on inside the company.40 - Companies that do not belong to a community of discourse willdie.75 - If you want us to talk to you, tell us something. Make it somethinginteresting for a change.
