We LOVE this piece by Seth Godin. It's from his blog today...honestly if you don't pick up another thing from Insight on Business other than catching his wisdom...we have succeeded.
According to Forbes the Chief Marketing Officer at Hyundai Motors, Joel Ewanick is the CMO of the year! Why? Because he looked at the wreckage and decided to build. If you own or manage a business you need to think about this. We'll talk about it. Here's the story.
We LOVE it when we are right and don't mind sharing it with you. (Yes, we're supposed to be humble. Nah...) If you've read our posts and listened to Insight on Business you know how we've pushed small business to engage in Social Media. We've told you how to go about it, who to talk to, what meetings to go to, what to stay away from...and on and on and on. Maybe John Jantsch has been listening in...or maybe we got it from him. It really doesn't matter as long as YOU GET IT. Please read "Five Ways to Grow Your Business with Social Media" it might help you make 2010 a success.
Just had a conversation with a person in Fort Dodge, Iowa who tells me the local radio station is running an ad that says, "Rather than lose local business by buying products on the Internet, pick three local businesses and make it a point to spend $50 a month with them." See anything weird and misguided with that suggestion? We'll talk about it today.
