Geez... 33 comments. I think that's more comments than we've had cumulatively on our 6 links :)

 

I thought I would add one little caveat (whichI think is what makes the links we post so interesting): the spirit of our link share is that each individual is choosing one link for the other two people. This forces me to find something in tech, data, etc... for Alistair or something in publishing, history or media for Hugh. As it evolved, we wound up discovering the interests and hobbies of the others in the group, so it became more and more diverse.

 

I hope your journey is as fascinating as ours is to me.

We need to be somewhat careful here. Trey's tragic death should not be confused with how "real" and "authentic" we are online (or how well we know someone). When someone commits suicide it's an irrational act and trying to put a rational mindset around it is impossible. I know many people who have sadly committed suicide and I knew them in their offline lives only... people who do things like this actually tend to hide it quite well from others... furthering the irrationality of it.

@Danny Brown I think a lot of companies just try things long before thinking about what they're willing to pay for a net new consumer. I see it in small, medium and even large businesses. I see agencies running programs without that detail... and I see brands doing it too.

Chris is experimenting and blending platforms... that, in and of itself, makes it interesting (to me, at least). He may derive value from it... others may not... that's what makes Marketing so fascinating to me.

As for industry standards... they work if all you're trying to do is benchmark your results against everyone else. I am sure the many breakthrough online advertising campaigns we've recently seen (Apple and The New York Times or Old Spice and YouTube) didn't pay much attention the industry standards of online advertising. If the average CTR is 0.05 on a banner ad and you're just hoping to beat that, it would be concerning to me as the agency of record.

3 years, 6 months ago on Why Brogan’s Bigger Ear Marketing Is Wrong

Reply

CPA. CPA. Cost Per Acquisition. None of us can even come close to saying that this is a right or wrong technique until we know what Chris (or anyone else) is willing to pay to acquire a new book reader. For some, it might be $0.10 for others it might be $5. He (hopefully) has his own marketing metrics and feels that this type of tactic has ROI. ROI for him might also not be just the sale of a book, but the engagement with one more person and their social graph.

It's easy to shoot holes into ideas. It's easy to take an industry standard percentage and apply it. In my many years of Marketing, I can't remember ever using the industry standard as a guide (it never made sense).

It reminds me of Google AdWords: the people who complain the most about their efficacy rarely have insight into their own CPA and what they're willing to do to achieve it.

What, people hate me? That's pretty heart-breaking to hear... :(

Ideas are like that: some of them click, some of them don't. I don't get too ruffled about it because I have the humility to know that this is Blogging: which means that some of my thoughts are half-baked and I'm looking to comments and tweets to help me crystalize that thinking.

I'm a big fan of Mark's and we often do private emails to discuss the back-and-forth. I'm not sure if Mark would agree, but in the end, I think we're pretty close to agreeing with one another (with some minor adjustments or tweaks). That's normal. If every Marketer used the same formula and philosophy, there wouldn't be a need for more than one agency.

I'm just thrilled to be a part of this (or any community). I love what I do and I consider it my art -so any compliments (like this Blog post) are extremely humbling... seriously. And anybody who doesn't agree with my work is ok too (not everybody can appreciate every kind of art).
