Getting privacy wrong ends the marketing relationship and THAT is very bad. We know that marketers can own and lead this discussion instead of waiting to be fined by the results of it. But if we start with empathy, we can get privacy right. Joining me in this episode is legit, renowned privacy expert, Jodi Daniels from Red Clover Advisors to tell us what we need to know about all of the new privacy laws, including the recent Sephora fines—and what we should ALL be doing to respect the relationship and get our privacy right.
It’s said that marketing is about creating great relationships. First, we make people curious, then they want to be enlightened and spend some quality and quantity time with the brand.

Joining me on the show is Coach Arno who helps results-driven executives create the relationship they want even when their partner is not open for couples counseling using his proven LBR-Method. So get your apologies and spontaneous gifts ready for another Oprah-approved episode of May the Best Brand Win on Entertalk Media.

I was in a conversation recently with some business owners and the question of “what is your most effective marketing advice” came up.  Almost all of them said “yeah, we don’t do much marketing,” which I found strange.  Upon further examination many of them engaged in plenty of marketing-related activities but they just didn’t “call” them marketing.  So we’re going to talk about all of the activities that companies do that apparently they don’t think are marketing, but they actually are.  We’ll also dig into who’s winning and losing this week on another fantabulous episode of May the Best Brand Win on Entertalk.
