The truth is that the world around us is changing so fast that you have to adapt to it. This means that it’s important to think beyond your own comfort zone in order to be successful in the market. You can only be successful in the market if you have a sense of the market and understand how it works.
Hubspot, a marketing and sales software company, has come out with a new report called “World Class Marketing” which is full of charts and statistics about how marketers are using marketing automation technologies to make marketing work for them. As I mentioned in the title, it’s an important topic because we use marketing to grow our own businesses so it’s important to have a grasp on how to apply marketing techniques to your own business.
The first thing that struck me when I was reading the World Class Marketing report is that they used the word “marketing” a lot. This is important because according to the report, the first thing marketers do is to “market their brands” to buyers. This is a big change from the days of old, when marketing was used to sell goods. The second thing that’s interesting is that the report also talks about building relationships with customers.
Of course, marketing and relationships are closely related, but it’s not always so cut-and-dried. There’s certainly plenty of marketing research that goes into the relationship between customers and businesses. For instance, on the subject of relationships with customers, marketing research shows that it’s better to be with customers in the hope that they’ll recommend you to others, than it is to try to manipulate them.
As a marketing researcher, I have to say that the notion that customers are all fake, fake, fake is a bit of a fallacy. That’s because research has shown the opposite. Research shows that customers are usually people with a strong emotional connection to a product or service that they’re buying. In other words, they’re not fake. They’re not just a means to an end. They’re people who’ve bought into the product or service and want to do more than just consume it.
So inbound marketing and web 2.0 marketing seem to be moving into the same camp, and I think this makes sense because people who are already consuming content need to be involved in it in some way. They can’t just sit back and enjoy watching it on their own. When they buy something, they’re already engaged and active.
My friend Dan Pink, one of the most insightful business thinkers ever, says that we all have three primary motivations: money, power, and meaning. When we get paid, we feel good. When we feel good, we want to keep doing what we do. When we want to keep doing what we do, we have some sort of purpose. When we have purpose, we feel good. And when we feel good, we want to keep doing what we do.
While most businesses have two of these, HubSpot is the only one that has three. So while people are often engaged in their jobs, they feel good about it. In HubSpot, the company is actually motivated by three things: the web, marketing, and sales. The business is motivated by the web, marketing, and sales, so it is all about making money.
The reason HubSpot is able to do this is because it has a lot of people who are all excited about making money from the web. That’s why the company even sells its own products – the web itself.
