Marketing and innovation produce results; all the rest are costs. Marketing is the distinguishing, unique function of the business.” — Peter Drucker (1967) ^ and keep Grand Unified Theory of marketing today…

  • 11. I’m the CMO, I’m in charge here! CMO budgets now exceed CIO budgets! Do you feel in charge? And that gives you power over IT?
  • 12. “Phil doesn’t just go on one date with Rita, he goes on thousands of dates. During each date, he makes note of what she likes and responds to, and drops everything she doesn’t. At the end he arrives at — quite literally — the perfect date….But at the end of this perfect date, something impossible happens: Rita rejects Phil.”* — Jeff Atwood, Coding Horror * http://blog.codinghorror.com/groundhog-day-or-the-problem-with-ab-testing/
  • 13. 3/16/2014 Venkatesh G. Rao 13 “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.” – John Wanamaker 100 Years Ago… Now… “99% of the money is wasted, but we know EXACTLY which 99%” – Ghost of John Wanamaker

  • 19. Producer context Consumer context 1970: Customers as babies – parental authority (0-12) 2014: Customers as teenagers – peer pressure (12 – 19) 2030: Customers as adults – personal choices (19 - ?) Why?
  • 20. High Speed Low Effort High Control Slow Marketing Three Infinite Games in Marketing Pick two out of three
  • 21. Growth hacking Manage the stage that contains the consumer context Examples: Tim Ferriss, Ryan Holliday, Patrick Vlaskovits
  • 22. Scene hacking Steward language evolution in the consumer context Examples: O’Reilly media, Maker movement, Andreessen- Horowitz
  • 23. Slow marketing Be the True North in the consumption context Examples: Google, Paul Graham, Elon Musk
  • 24. the purpose of business is to create and keep a customer — Peter Drucker v 2.0 to catch and release v 2.1 to tag and release v 2.2 to recognize and release v 2.3 to arm and release v 2.4 to equip and release

Quote reblogged from elmer season with 25 notes

To the modern mind, a glitch is an unwanted artifact, a momentary interruption of
expected behavior produced by a faulty system. In an instant it changes the user’s
relationship with that system. A glitch instills suspicion, indicating the system is
unreliable, corrupted, not to be trusted.
