I attended a conference yesterday and walked away with word jerky like you wouldn’t believe. I don’t know which of these nuggets to chew on first, so I’m going to share them all and see which ones make you bite. Chime in early; chime in often. Let’s get the most out of these.
And in no particular order… Drum roll please…
- Trust changes everything. (Marcus Sheridan)
- Get comfortable with change and patience. (Tiffany Sauder)
- Let go of the mentality that you have a secret sauce. (Marcus Sheridan)
- Truth and transparency can change an industry. (Marcus Sheridan)
- Putting your toes in the water isn’t good enough. You have to jump in all the way. (Brian Halligan)
- Why do we let our competitors dictate how much money we make? (Marcus Sheridan)
- If you have too much dead wood in your organization consider this: were they dead when you hired them or did you kill them? (Will Davis)
- I love watching dumb businesses. It’s awesome! (Marcus Sheridan)
- Marketing used to be about the size of your wallet. Now it’s about the size of your brain. (Brian Halligan)
- Don’t irritate your way into someones wallet. Love your way there. (Brian Halligan)
- Make sharing easy. (Nate Riggs)
I’ve got lots of ideas to develop for future posts, but for now I need to chew on this Sam’s Club-sized portion of word jerky. Talk it up, friends. Which one of these grabs you?
P.S. If you’re a Twitterer and you’re interested in some of the buzz around this conference–the topic was inbound marketing–check out #GoInboundMktg. There was a lot of energy in that room!
Oooh. Lots of good stuff to chew on here, is right! I really like the first two: “trust changes everything” and “get comfortable with change and patience”. I feel like both of these could really make an impact on my Corporate World life and my real world life, too!
I agree, Amber! I’m pretty sure you would have left this conference completely energized, too. 🙂
I am going to check things out on Twitter for sure! 🙂
I just heard that more people are feeling comfortable enough to quit their jobs, so this one ought to make some companies shiver in their boots:
