21 Quotes That Will Change the Way You Think About Marketing

  1. “ ”Change the Way You Think About MARKETING 21 QuotesTHAT WILL
  2. About Youtility Jay Baer The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success. If you’re wondering how to get more attention and how to make your products seem more exciting online, you’re asking the wrong question. You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against your customers’ closest friends and family members, and against viral videos and cute puppies. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask a different question: “How can we help?” It’s a new approach that cuts through the clutter: marketing that is truly, inherently useful. If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility. Drawing from his experience consulting for more than 700 brands, and rich with case studies and examples, in Youtility Jay Baer provides a groundbreaking recipe for how to use information and helpfulness to transform the relationship between companies and customers. Youtility is a new marketing framework for the age of information overload. YoutilityBook.com
  3. “Youtility is marketing upside down. Instead of marketing that’s needed by companies, Youtility is marketing that’s wanted by customers. It’s massively useful FREE information, that creates long-term trust and kinship between a company and its customers.” — Jay Baer 1
  4. “If you create something that somebody would pay for, but you give it away, not only are you building trust and a debt of gratitude but you shock them into sharing it. They share not only the asset itself, which is inherently valuable to the brand, but they share the fact that they are surprised that a brand would just give it to them and not try to sell them along the way.” — Joe Chernov, Kinvey About Joe Chernov Joe Chernov is the Vice President of Marketing at cloud backend development company Kinvey. Prior to his appointment at Kinvey, he ran Eloqua’s content marketing, where the Content Marketing Institute named him Content Marketer of the Year. He has created a number of award-winning graphics, videos, and infographics in partnership with creative agency JESS3, and he regularly contributes his thought leadership to outlets like Mashable and the Content Marketing Institute. 2
  5. “In most companies, creating marketing that customers want is a colossal shift from the norm and, even though they want to do it, psychological and operational barriers stand in the way. Making your company inherently useful without expecting an immediate return is in direct opposition to the principles of marketing and business deeply ingrained at all levels.” — Jay Baer 3

  8. “Even with so many new tools like Facebook, Twitter and beyond, few businesses are actually doing anything markedly different than they used to. Facebook is a fancy photo scrapbook and Twitter is often just a tiny press-release machine. It’s the same shouting with a different megaphone.” — Jay Baer 6

  11. “In the same way our generation takes electricity for granted, younger people today take the Internet for granted. Because they grew up with it, they have no reason not to trust the information they find there. We used to talk to a real person as a first step; now it’s the last resort. Customers are ninjas, stealthily evaluating you right under your nose.” — Jay Baer 9

  14. “Youtility doesn’t overcome all other product and price dynamics, but it gives the brand that extra edge, the tiebreaker that allows it to ultimately sell more by ‘selling’ less.” — Jay Baer 12
