    “Methodical hustle”. Every so often you come across an origin story that just blows you away. Today's guests have that story. In just six short years, Garrett Mehrguth went from selling social media calendars on Fiverr to being the Co-founder and CEO of Directive Consulting, a top-rated and award-winning Customer Generation agency. Garrett joins us, along with Directive's Senior Director of Growth, Drew Choco to talk about their journey.(23:28) “So I'm not really hustling in the sense of like how most people hustle so much as I'm driving towards a vision and okay with being bad at stuff. So I'm constantly trying to take on new initiatives that if you were just to sit down, put it on paper and say, “Hey, what's your greatest opportunity for the business? And like, if you could do anything, what would you do?” And I kind of just live in that world.”Garrett and Drew discuss their journey over the past six years, share their experience with explosive growth, talk about the importance of intentional capital allocation, R&D and placing value on people and culture.Main Takeaways“Learn, engage, and create.” This is Garrett's mantra and quite possibly, his superpower. According to Garrett in action this means, learn something new every day, engage with it by practicing it, integrating it and executing it and with that, he creates more value for himself, his company and his customers.Intentional capital allocation “You show me where a company spends its money, and I will show you what it is good at.” Directive learned that a high-level awareness of where it allocates its capital was imperative to the longevity and success of the company. For them, this meant heavy investment in people and culture.Get better at business and marketing will take care of itself. “If you want to get better at marketing, get better at business.” To Garrett this is just common sense. If you get better at all the parts of your business (i.e., product, sales, finance), you can't help but get better at marketing.Key QuotesGarrett 08:11 “I always just asked myself, what do I enjoy? What am I good at? And then what'll someone pay me for, right? And so when you're 21 years old, I like solving problem. I'm good at solving problems. People think I know the internet because I'm younger than them and they'll pay me to help 'em with digital. I should go learn the internet. And so we, I kind of just like read as much as I could on digital marketing and I'm a pretty avid reader. I really enjoy learning. And so I kind of just came up with little mantra were called learn, engage, create. And the idea was if I could learn something new every day, engage with it, by practicing it, integrating it, executing it that I could create more value for myself, my company and my customers.”Garrett 17:55 (Intentional Capital Allocation) “You show me where a company spends its money and I'll show you what it's good at. And I think what Directive learn and does well now is it has a very high, high level awareness of where we allocate our capital, why we're doing so, and then what we want to accomplish and how that fits our vision.” Garrett 33:23  What if you're really honest with yourself, what you realize is the clients that are successful have very little to do with you. that like you get a great client with a great culture, a great product, a great marketplace. You really can't screw it up and you look, look really smart because you help 'em with this thing that you're good at. You help 'em with that thing. And so I think the key, if you want to get better at marketing is to get better at business, to get better at product, to get better at sales, to get better at finance marketing should just be the application of other spheres of influences information.Bio:Garrett Mehrguth is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Directive, the award-winning Customer Generation agency for SaaS.

    Keeping Humanity at the Center of Marketing with Ceros' CMO Jamie Gier

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 25, 2022 57:39

    Jamie Gier knows what people want. From a young age, she was seeing gaps in the market and finding ways to bridge them – her eye for business had her selling ash from Mount St. Helens' on a cross-country roadtrip when she was just a kid. But the business side of things will always be second to the human side of a company, and that's where Jamie's unique eye for storytelling plays a major role in Ceros' success. She finds a way to meet the needs of the customer with a storyteller's grace. “The reality is that you have to be very relevant to a community, and you're feeding them based on both the heart and the mind. So, intellectually – what are we providing to them that makes them better at what they do? From the ‘heart' perspective – how do you tell the stories and help them see a better version of themselves in what you can provide?” Her strategy is paying off. Ceros is a rapidly growing software company that keeps culture and creativity at the heart of everything it does. Their mission is to help customers unlock their creativity and build exceptional content using their unique and powerful design platform and resources…all without writing a single line of code. So how does Jamie manage to acquire new clients, find ways to help them meet their needs while also keeping focus on their narrative – all while leading a team of her own? Tune into this week's episode of Marketing Trends to find out!  Main TakeawaysKeep humanity at the center. A lot of business is focused on data – numbers and figures and profits and losses… but it is important to remember that people are the heart of every endeavor. If you're leading a group, make sure to take time to connect with them. Ask your client about their reason – the passion that got them to start their business. Remember that your team lead's daughter had a softball tournament this week – and ask how it went. Those are things that people remember. Data as a substantiator of tactics, not a driver of tactics. Data has changed the marketing game, but it isn't everything. In fact, the sheer amount of data we are able to collect can be overwhelming. It's important to use a targeted strategy. For Cero's, they know three things: some of the data is useful, some should be ignored, and all of it should be secondary to a client's narrative. The data should substantiate strategy, not create it. Never be the smartest person in the room. Make sure that you're always learning. Surround yourself with experts, and never stop asking questions. Your curiosity will inform your growth. Key Quotes“A lot of aspiring professionals don't have a lot of opportunities right in front of them. And if anything, my story might provide a little bit of hope and encouragement that you can come from a small town, not go to an ivy-league school, come from a broken family, and – by pure grit and determination – do whatever you want.” “I was charged with capturing the stories and voices of the people who would be impacted if they didn't have access to the product that we were selling at the time. And it occurred to me then how important my role was in making sure that their voices were heard… that was the very beginning of being intentional about the industries that I wanted to participate in – where there was some kind of social impact for the wellbeing of other people.” “What led me to stay in the industries that I've been involved in… is the story around how we make our customers [the focus], not necessarily the product we're selling.” “We have to learn to take off our functional hat and be relevant to the broader organization. We need to be able to have an opinion, an experience to share on other aspects of the business, besides what we can do every day in marketing – whether that's in product strategy, customer access, HR, the programs that make sure we're attracting the best talent… it really propelled me to have a broader appreciation for all other aspects of the business and getting closer to it.” BioJamie Gier has believes in working with leading technology companies to make a change. From healthcare to education, she is always trying to improve the way people learn, work, and live. Her teenaged son always gives her a reason to be searching for a way to make the world better. Her twenty-five year marketing career has focused on scaling and growing businesses by creating impactful brands, designing revenue-generating go-to-market strategies, and leading high performing teams across product marketing, corporate communications, public relations, digital marketing, and demand creation.---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

    Modernizing the Corporate Real Estate Market with Collier's CMO Chrissy Nolen

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 23, 2022 70:53

    The key to successful marketing lies in the ability to seamlessly communicate with consumers – to know what they want, when they want it, and communicate to them how they can get it. In a world of incredibly competitive industries, quick and efficient marketing can be the difference between a business surviving, or not. Chrissy Nolen, the CMO of Colliers, Houston, has made a name for herself as a person who can see the places where critical communication can be improved, and Colliers, a leading commercial real estate brokerage and investment management company has benefited greatly from her vision. “We were very fortunate not to lay anybody off during COVID – we actually went through a huge growth phase. We were having to onboard people remotely, which was new and challenging in and of itself. But these metrics that we were able to pull – we realized that if we created dashboards for our clients, that we weren't losing any property.” To hear all about how Chrissy went from a front-desk manager at a boutique real estate firm with a bold idea to switch to digital invitations to Chief Marketing Officer for one of the largest real estate companies in the world, be sure to tune into this week's episode of Marketing Trends. Main TakeawaysSay yes to big challenges. If there's an opportunity to showcase your unique talents in a work environment, say yes to the challenge – even if you're not completely sure about the nuts and bolts. Even if you'll have to google “how to” before starting. The chance to shine and prove your worth doesn't happen every day – jump at it when it comes! Lean into new communication styles. Leading groups of diverse people can be a challenging task, and the key component of team leadership is the ability to communicate and listen to your team. If something isn't working, try approaching the problem from a different angle. Ask new questions, and you might just get some new answers. Sometimes it's a good thing to hit pause. When COVID hit, Chrissy's team was about to launch an entirely new interface. Instead of being frustrated at the hiccup in their plan, Chrissy and her team took the time to make sure everyone was well-versed in the technology – and that break, that step-down, made it so that when they were ready to launch, everyone was ready. Sometimes, you go farther when you take a beat to make sure you're ready for the sprint. If an unexpected break comes your way, embrace it. Key Quotes“The biggest thing I learned [about leadership] was how to empower people… I was ready to let somebody go just because it seemed like they weren't working. Fortunately, I had a great mentor that led me to some great management tips. I was able to turn around and simply by asking ‘what is it that you need from me to be successful?' and ‘what can I do to help you?'... we were able to turn things around.”   “The biggest thing we've done to align [with sales] is the age-old ‘start and stop'. What should we start doing? What should we stop doing? What should we keep doing? That turned into… ‘hey, let's brainstorm about this initiative. Let's flesh this out.'” “I'm most excited about how easy it's becoming to connect our technologies and being able to do things without an expensive third-party platform.” “We have so many people that know [our tools] well enough that they're constantly coming up with ideas about how to do things, and it's easy to make the change.” BioChrissy Nolen is passionate about innovation and productivity in the workplace, and is constantly seeking a better way to help others succeed. She entered the professional world in high school, where she did everything stuffing invitations and performing endless mail mergers for fundraiser mail-outs or organizing group volunteer projects.She started as a marketing specialyist at the front desk of a small boutique real estate firm, where her first assignments was to build a website – something she had never done before but did, anyway. She's been innovating ever since. Now, she's the CMO of Colliers Houston, where she's a principal of the firm. She's been named Colliers U.S. Marketer of the Year, been involved in some of Texas' largest commercial real estate projects, and has been listed as a local Top 40 Under 40.---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

    Being a part of a University is such an interesting world. You're essentially part of building and running a small city. Sometimes it can be hard to know what direction to take things.

And how do you really know who the target customer is? These are all things we are going to explore with today's guest, Emily Reagan the Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at the University of Texas.Emily joined UT right at the beginning of the pandemic and during one of the worst winter storms Texas has ever seen. But despite those challenges, she knew that the best way to start her tenure at UT was by focusing on the foundation to all great marketing - relationships. “Relationships are really, really important. And, um, and marketing, the role of marketing in organizations is, is, is typically not the one calling the shots on the strategies or what we're doing or what we're not doing. Um, but they are critical in, in, you know, in smart companies, they're obviously at the table at part of those conversations, but they're, they're not necessarily the lead. They're often a partner, they're an influencer. And particularly in a B2B organization, they're very much a, an influencer and a partner to the sales team. And, um, and I really enjoyed that. And I enjoyed, um, the, the relationship building with the sales team and kind of understanding their world a little bit better. I had been doing a lot of work consumer marketing prior to that.So I hadn't really worked with a, you know, a software sales team. Mm. And so that was kind of a new experience. Yeah. Yeah. And, um, but I think, and the thing there is, is, is, you know, do what you said you were gonna do and, and build relationships. And because those are, you know, that's who you're really to help kind of make their job easier. And so I think that's just a really important thing regardless of what function that you're in sure is to understand who your, your internal customer is. Mm-hmm , and, and really being clear about what, how you can work together and how you can build trust and build relationship.”She shares so much insight on this episode.

    One of the biggest buzz words today is web 3.0. How is this interaction with consumers anywhere and everywhere going to change the way we do things? Every marketer is wondering where it's going, and today I've found someone who is on the forefront of these marketing campaigns and developing strategies that truly work for brands. “This is kind of a global web 3 metaverse tip, but it definitely applies to influencer marketing, which is, we have a tendency as marketers to think that the media buy is what proves success. But simply engaging an influencer doesn't mean you're gonna engage their audience. It has everything to do with how you collaborate with them. We build out these concepts based on the brand truth. And then we identify audiences we think could be best served by that brand in that moment. And then we have a group called the media and messaging group who actually helped build out a campaign where, where it lives and what it says are the same thing.”Nathan Phillips, Co-Founder and Director of Concept Design at Technology, Humans And Taste, or THAT, has a whole different view of marketing. He's taken his skills as an artist, as a director, and so much more to reshape the way we should be thinking about how we market and what a successful campaign looks like.Trust me, you will want to take some notes on his out of the box thinking - because what worked 5 or 10 years ago won't be working in the next 5 or 10 years.Alright, let's get to it!Main TakeawaysThe new way of thinking. In our new immersive world, start having the mentality: think of an amazing TV Spot. Now, what if it was real? We are immersed in a media ecosystem that is high touch. It's liquid, flexible, and so pervasive that we need to have big conceptual ideas, then decide where those live.Avoid yes and. Instead, look at every opportunity given to you like a gift. Take it, accept it, then  build upon it.Allow room for bureaucracy. It's often hard to make big pivots, especially when most of your budget is already accounted for early in the year. Be ready for that, because something big may come at a moment's notice that could have huge outcomes. Build a plan for those unexpected moments before they happen.Key Quotes“This is kind of a global web 3 metaverse tip, but it definitely applies to influencer marketing, which is, we have a tendency as marketers to think that the media buy is what proves success. But simply engaging an influencer doesn't mean you're gonna engage their audience. It has everything to do with how you collaborate with them. We build out these concepts based on the brand truth. And then we identify audiences we think could be best served by that brand in that moment. And then we have a group called the media and messaging group who actually helped build out a campaign where, where it lives and what it says are the same thing.”“The way that we express ourselves most personally, is through purchase. Before this call [I was] having a bad hair day, put a hat on. Felt a little shlubby in my sweatshirt, put this jacket on. I'm designing myself based on stuff I bought.”“Self-driving cars exist, right? So why don't we have self-driving cars? Is it because the technology doesn't work? No, it's because the government moves slower than the technology. The bureaucratic nature of law is challenging. And so it doesn't know how to rule on this new technology. So the humans that are potentially ready for it, the cultural impact, the safety, the environmental positive outcomes are stopped. Not because it can't happen, but because people can't get their act together to think differently and do what has yet to be done. I would hate to think of marketing as an industry would fall victim to the same downfall.”BioCo-Founder and Director of Concept Design at Technology, Humans And Taste [THAT].

    Video marketing is key today, especially when it comes to advertising online. A lot of companies struggle with creating content that really appeals to today's consumers. The good news is, I have an incredible expert on today's episode to give you insights into what is working for major companies. “Where video trends are going right now is mainly super short form. You're seeing it with TikTok. You're seeing with Instagram reels, even YouTube video shorts and everyone really investing on the short form, but there's also the notion that's very U GC and you're seeing other video content producers really pushing on the, let's say Hollywood style entertainment, but it's not always successful.”Caroline Blavet, VP Global Client Strategy at Dailymotion, is on the front lines of video content creation. Her team helps some of the biggest brands like Netflix and Vice discover what is working and where the trends are going. With nearly 400 million active monthly users, she knows exactly what people want. So don't miss this episode, she gives tips every marketer should know from beginning to end. Let's get to it!Main TakeawaysKeep it short. Consumers are wanting more and more micro content. 15, 30 seconds. If it goes on too long, people will lose interest and move on to the next video. Episodic is still king. Even in short form, people like things that are similar, or that they are getting a story out of. Episodic is a great way to connect with a potential customer on an emotional level.No Hollywood Budget Needed. Overly produced content doesn't seem to perform as well. Users are drifting towards content that has more of a user generated feel to it. People like the authenticity behind this type of content, so that's what you want to replicate online.Key Quotes“Instead of focusing on user generated content, like a lot of social media platforms, we focus on working with partners that have their own professionally produced content. Partners like Vice Content, NA publications, Meredith Publications, and on top of the video streaming, we also have an ecosystem of over 2000 publishers or so worldwide that use our player.”“Where video trends are going right now is mainly super short form. You're seeing it with TikTok. You're seeing with Instagram Reels, even YouTube video shorts, and everyone really investing on the short form. But there's also the notion that's very user generated. You're seeing other video content producers really pushing on, let's say Hollywood style entertainment, but it's not always successful.”“[With short content] Episodical helps a lot in any way shape or form. I think it's the storytelling aspect of that form. And this works even for advertising. We talk about this a lot with our advertisers as well. Episodic storytelling type of advertising, even videos if you reduce it from your 30 second to your 15 second, make it short, but different, is something that I find works very well.”“The whole reason why we geared away from monetizing user generated content was to be able to position ourselves as a hallmark for brand safety. It starts upfront with the vetting, the partners that we work with. So that's not so much a technology play so much as it is a relationship one and our vetting process. And then there's, there's a technology part of it, which a lot of it is.”BioCaroline's mission at DailyMotion asVP Global Client Strategy, is to build direct relationships with brands at a global level, as she works with partners on the product side, ad agencies, negotiates multi-year contacts and thus has a global perspective on utilizing online video. ---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

    Bridging the Gap Between Data and Action in Marketing with VMware CMO, Carol Carpenter

    Most of the time, finding the right answers depends solely on asking the right questions – and that is often easier said than done. But Carol Carpenter, Former CMO of VMware – an American cloud computing and virtualization technology company – understands that the key to a good marketing strategy is always centered around knowing what questions to ask, and more than that – she knows how to break down answers into actionable data.   Intro quote (2:33): “The team, a few years ago, the team said ‘well, let's just suck in all the behavioral data from what [customers] have done in the trial. I'm like, ‘no, like, let us be really clear…what are the things that drive engagement and usage… what kind of data would help us make those decisions? Otherwise, we should leave the customer alone. If they're not having problems and need some education or help, don't bother them. Carol's strategy has more than paid off. VMware's success is undeniable – they're the first commercially successful company to virtualize the x86 architecture, and currently employ over 24,000 people. On today's episode of Marketing Trends, Carol tells us about her career - including how she went from CEO of ElasticBox to CMO at VMware. Plus she shares best practices for CMOs looking to bridge the gap between data and action. Enjoy! Main TakeawaysYou can't market what you don't understand. If you want to be good at marketing a product, you need to understand it. You need to know the ins and outs of what makes it tick. If you can't answer the basic questions about it, you won't be able to pre-empt them for the customer, either.Focus on team wins. While a lot of business is very cut-throat, it doesn't always have to be. Make sure to look for those moments when a personal win can be translated to a team win – how are you all working together to affect the market changes you're trying to implement? Taking the focus off of your own stake can result in a refreshing change of perspective.Keep an eye on consumer growth. It is easy to try and maintain current customer satisfaction at the expense of the growth of a larger base. In order to grow, you might have to shake up the status quo – and that might mean pushing some current customers out of their comfort zone.Key Quotes“This is a company that is at the intersection of a lot of different computing capabilities. And our core value is we have been the bridge. We are the Switzerland, we partner with all seven plus high scalers. We meet our customers where they are.”“What is marketing? It's a combination of communicating the value… and the value is usually steeped and some kind of differentiated value. And it means it has to be unique. It has to be tangible. It has to be something your customers care about.” “I still believe you can't market what you don't understand. Like if you're not in the guts and you don't understand what the OS is doing, what the processor is doing… how could you even begin to try to translate that to a simple customer story?”“I definitely realized, like there are things I could teach and help others scale around marketing, whether it's in a large company or a small company across many different domains. So that's why I came back.” Bio:Carol Carpenter joined VMware in June 2020 as chief marketing officer. As CMO, Carpenter is responsible for leading all aspects of the Global Marketing organization, which includes Corporate Marketing, Partner, Segment and Field Marketing.Carpenter brings to the role more than 25 years of technology sector experience. Most recently, she was vice president, Product Marketing at Google Cloud. Over the past three and a half years, Carpenter and the team led the transformation of Google Cloud from its early stage to its leadership position in cloud – building the team, crafting the brand positioning and campaign playbooks, enabling sales and the shift from products to solutions in its go-to-market. Prior to Google Cloud, Carpenter was the CEO of ElasticBox (acquired by CenturyLink) and held leadership and marketing roles in technology at Trend Micro, Keynote Systems and Apple and more.Carpenter holds a bachelor of arts in economics degree from Stanford University and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

    How the product labels of the future will change everything with Francisco Melo of Avery Dennison Smartrac

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 4, 2022 30:16

    In a world of increasing consumer awareness, creators are finding there's a new, emerging factor that is important to target markets: transparency. People want to know where their goods are coming from: are they ethically sourced? Are they really made up of the materials they list on the back? How long was this product on the shelf? Businesses are finding that answering those questions has opened up an entirely new way of doing business. And for Francisco Melo of Avery Dennison – s a global materials science company specializing in the design and manufacture of a wide variety of labeling and functional materials – it is an exciting new frontier; an opportunity for businesses to be more accountable and sustainable. And Avery Dennison is more than up to the task. They've created an internally-built startup that has developed the world's leading connected product cloud, an end-to-end platform that can enable each and every physical item in the world to have a unique digital identity. You can see where your product was created, where it was shipped, and everything in between. More than that, it also allows you to find out the best way to dispose of it, should you need to. This entirely new way of approaching the supply chain is something that could – and, according to Francisco – will absolutely change the way we all approach buying things. “It's about having that common vision and working towards it, and then understanding it's the creation of win-win partnerships. This isn't about me winning and your business losing… we both win because we create better evidence and we create a better future for tomorrow. We do something that's right for the business and right for the planet.” To hear all about Franscisco's bold plan for the future of RDIF and the implementation of this bold new tech into existing companies, be sure to tune into this week's episode of Marketing Trends. .Main TakeawaysFind win-win partnerships. The business world will always be competitive – that's the nature of the industry. But, there are ways we can work together – businesses, consumers, suppliers… everyone. And if we're going to change the way we approach consumption on this planet, we are going to have to. Innovative concepts, such as atma.io, are just the start of the ways we can adjust. Keep a balance between optimization and velocity. The two concepts seem at odds – are you getting better, or are you going faster? But Francisco is adamant that striking a balance between the two is imperative in order to keep a company healthy. Find ways to make sure you're doing the best you can with what you have now while also keeping your eye on the next big thing. You can have a preference of one over the other, but they need to work in sync.Digital identities are the future. While talk of the metaverse and avatars might be filling the airwaves, the real digital revolution has already begun on the supply chain, and it's making everything more transparent. Bringing in everyone from the supplier to the retailer to the consumer makes for a more seamless shopping experience, while also helping everyone involved keep track of the environmental impact of the transaction. Key Quotes“I found that I really love being at the intersection between the technology element – the understanding of the technology and the marketing element. The value that it brings… that's really what excited me the most through my journey through a number of companies.” “The easiest way to lead people is to come to a joint vision and be able to deliver on that without necessarily having the full ownership of that… your success is very dependent on everyone else's success.” “I'm probably more towards velocity versus optimization. I tend to be asking… What's next? How do I drive it faster? How do I become more agile? How do we take it to the next level? Having said that… those things go hand in hand.” ‘It's all about creating a smart retail lens, but I think more than that – what [digital identities] allow from a consumer standpoint is a smart supply chain. This isn't just about retail, it's about the supply chain. Because you can know what's happened to that product throughout its journey from the moment it was born…up to the retail and, potentially, beyond retail as well. I think it provides a level of transparency which is one of the key elements.” “I think the potential that lies ahead of us with a consumer element – not just potential from a business standpoint… can we help people make sure they know how to dispose of things? Can we help people to make sure they know what they should do with specific products so they don't contaminate the soil?” BioFrancisco Melo is the vice president and general manager for Avery Dennison Smartrac. In this capacity, Mr. Melo directs and guides the strategy for digital ID solutions globally, working with brands and enterprise customers, to enable them to capture the benefits of enabling every item with a unique digital identity and digital life. Prior to joining Avery Dennison, Mr. Melo was a co-founder and CEO of Creativesystems (today part of Sensormatic), an RFID systems integrator and SW developer company. His earlier career includes extensive international experience in management, consulting, and business development with Synectics Inc. and Altran, as well as market development and product development roles at Royal Philips Electronics. Mr. Melo has a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and a Masters of Science in Instrument Design and Application, from The University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. He is passionate about how technology enables a better world, and how creativity is at the heart of disruption and progress, collaborating with the Porto Business School (PBS) at the University of Porto (Portugal) in the field of innovation and creativity.---Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

    Why You're Not Changing the World with Kim Caldbeck, CMO, Coursera

    Education is something that is incredibly powerful. It changes lives, communities, even countries. But education is more than institutions. It's knowledge, empowerment, and knowing how to take action on skills you learn. My guest today, Kim Caldbeck, CMO of Coursera, is using her marketing skills to make an impact on individuals to help empower them to make changes.“We did a campaign in the fall that was about rethinking possibilities and, and that, and, um, this year, uh, the campaign platform that we're really working through is, is all about that feeling. When, when, you know, you can ACE that interview, when, you know, you have the skills for the job, when you realize you can actually go dream like you could when you were a kid.”In this episode she talks about what it's like working at an institution that targets nearly anyone who wants to learn. She discusses some of the marketing tech she uses, what she looks for in success stories, and how she creates passion in her team. When you finish this episode, let me know what you think by leaving a comment on Apple Podcasts or on YouTube. Alright, let's get to it!Main TakeawaysSales is about teamwork. In the end, sales always comes down to the marketing team, and they should be working closely with the sales team to make sure they have enough potential, and knowledgeable, customers to execute on. Take advantage of internal and external talent. When you are a growing team, it's helpful to bring on external talent to make sure you are completing the jobs in the most efficient manner, but when it comes time to scale you want to bring on internal hires. Having internal talent will help make sure processes are followed, and you have more control over the end result.Look ahead. It's easy to get trapped in the day to day work grind, but you want look down the road. What will the next three years look like? What will the world be like? What goals do you have for the next three years?Key Quotes“I think marketing is an amazing field that allows you to combine that interest in understanding people and empathy and creativity and storytelling along with hardcore data and analytics and technology.”“If marketing's not doing the most effective thing to close deals, then we're not doing our job. And if sales is wasting energy by not taking the leads that we're providing, then either they're wasting energy on their side and they could be closing more deals or we're not doing our job. It's just that shared commitment to the end result.”“[When hiring] what's their why? Pretty much everyone at Coursera has some connection to our mission in a meaningful way. It is an easy one to get behind when you're trying to transform life through learning. Having people be able to articulate why that means something to them and why they're excited.”“[External vs internal teams] is definitely a nail and scale approach. I would nail with more freelance support and scale with more full-time support. But even within that, the larger equation is, how do we get the job done in the best way possible at the lowest cost?”BioKim Caldbeck is the Chief Marketing Officer at Coursera. Kim joined Coursera in April 2015 as Director of Brand and Product Marketing. Prior to Coursera, Kim spent five years at Facebook launching many of Facebook's first consumer marketing campaigns in over 60 global markets. She spent much of her time in the mobile space spearheading Facebook's internet.org launch to bring internet to the offline world, leading product marketing for Facebook for Android and Facebook for Every Phone, and developing the Facebook for Android beta program. She also spent two years in business marketing at Facebook helping advertisers build their brands and businesses in the digital world. Prior to Facebook, Kim worked in marketing at Apple supporting a network of over 100,000 app developers. She started her career in brand consulting and consumer research at Landor Associates working with many of the world's leading brands.

He's the Chief Evangelist Officer, and you can tell his passion and love for his product. It's infectious. “The valuable influencer marketing for us has been 1000% relationship based. And these are situations where, um, I will send product, not ask for anything in return, not have them sign a thing.I'm sure this is like all worst practices, but, um, but I, what I want to know is if you love it, then if you love it, then I'll, then I'll come, I'll come hang out with you. I'll go for a ride with you. Um, I'll go get coffee with you. We'll talk one wheel, we'll talk life, you know, and, and those are the relationships, um, like friendships. I shouldn't even, you know, it's like legitimately friendships that end up being, I hate looking at it in terms of value, but that's what it is.”By the end of this interview I know you will be a believer in not only his product, but his marketing style and leadership style.

When you build a community with your consumers, your marketing efforts will go viral. People will want to be a part of the community, and bring their friends to be a part of it as well.Key Quotes“We were looking at the companies in 2014. The GoPros and the Red Bulls of the world and thought this needs to be our approach. We need to build something that goes beyond the product. It's fun. It has personality.. It's something that people get excited about trying and riding and owning.”“On the retail side, demand has always been there. A lot of our retailers will almost sell out of OneWheels before their order comes in. Then their order comes in and then they call up their people and they come pick up their wheels and they order another batch. It's been a win-win. … I think we have 700 retailers in the US, but we also have a retail network in Europe and in Australia. And that's something that is really exciting to us too.”“I actually learned by doing everything myself, which I think is awesome because you learn every facet of marketing. Whether it's content creation, public relations, social, you learn it all. And then we hired folks that are better at that stuff than I was, which is always the goal.”“The valuable influencer marketing for us has been 1000% relationship based and these are situations where I will send product, not ask for anything in return, not have them sign a thing.
