Thanks for this recording.  I can't believe how many people market without having the foggiest idea about who they're marketing too.  Some great ideas here.

This is brilliant, @jaybaer. "hiring for passion and training for skill" - fabulous. I so agree. The workplace is changing so fast, and our schools are still training for the industrial age. Mind boggling. Everyone needs to watch this.

Love what you said about listening to people. We don't do that often enough. It's easy to get tied up in what we have to say, and what we have to offer, that we forget that others are mostly concerned with themselves. If we honour that, listen, and provide accordingly, I think we have a good chance of coming out on top.

We've done this with our social media, and are finding it really helpful. It's a point so many miss. Thanks for bringing it out into the open again!

Oh, I so agree with this. What a blessing it would be if we all stopped advertising and instead shared, supported and educated. Actually, some advertising isn't a problem. It's the shove it in your face until you gag kind of advertising I'd dearly love to see the back end of! thanks, Jay!

I just had a client this week send me a "whine" about receiving yet another invite to yet another new social media tool. I keep coming back to my original question - are the majority of my target market there? It's only when my target market is highly active on a certain tool/in a certain place that I need to even consider the tool. If they're not using it, neither am I. I think we sometimes forget the basics in light of the bells and whistles.

Great post!

A Treadmill desk is my next major purchase/creation. I've been looking at several options (including trying to get my husband to build one for me!) I'm a walker in addition to a marketer, and absolutely love this idea. It was fun seeing your results. Thanks.

Thanks for this, Jay. I love the bit about "social media happens fast, but success is accrued very slowly". That's something people just don't get. We're back to the old "know like and trust" - which has always been the case. Social Media makes us think that it should happen faster online. I think it happens more slowly. Great post. Thanks for sharing!

Great article, Jay. Not much into the video as you force me to sit still and listen for a certain amount of time. I'd rather scan and glean. It's well done, though. I do like that you give me the choice!

Great article. Thanks. Personally I hate leaving a phone number because I dread being hassled to death by sales calls. I'll leave a "catch all" email address and then if I know I want to move ahead with someone, I'll give them more valuable contact information. In my mind, a site has to earn the right to get close.
