You kids get off my lawn! And Other Things Old Marketers Say | Tara Hunt. Contrarians. They're trouble. At least they're trouble in structured organizations. They are the "But maybes" in your "Of courses!” They come up with exceptions to your rules.It's hard for businesses to find a place for contrarians. But, when they do find their place, the results can be incredible. Think Steve Jobs: He was kicked out of the company he founded before returning to it at a desperate hour.
n this episode of LPO, we’re talking to BJ Fogg, Ph.D., author and founder of the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University. His new book, "Tiny Habits," has turned business management lessons into a program for individual behavioral change.
After almost four decades, I believe the best choice for another shot at a conversion is still that quaint old communication medium: email.Email still can't be beat for rich content, for conversations that feel one-to-one, and for getting another shot at a future customer. It's the original social media platform. Liz Willits is a self-professed email marketing nerd, and the Senior Content Marketing Specialist at AWeber, one of the ‘OG; email services. She has worked with some of the most successful marketers in the world to help them with their email marketing strategies. Liz doesn't think you're sending too much on email, and she's got the data to prove it. If we're not sending too much on email, then what's keeping our email from being more productive? Listen in to hear her take.

"CMOs are abdicating their strategic position in their businesses."Just when I was marveling at how much CMOs really must do for their brands, Laura Patterson, President of VisionEdge Marketing, said the above statement that stopped me in my tracks.Laura has been focused on performance marketing and the proper use of data since before it was "cool,” and if anybody knows what's going on with CMOs, it's her.A few weeks later, I was on a panel that brought up the Fornaise Marketing Group study. This study states that of the 1,200 CEOs polled, 80% of them did not trust and were not impressed by the work done by marketers. By comparison, 90% of them trusted their CIOs and CFOs. I did some additional research and found more incriminating news. Forrester recently reported that "dozens" of major brands had eliminated the CMO position altogether, brands like Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg's, Taco Bell, and Netflix.I wanted to get to the bottom of this. Was I part of the problem, focusing on just one channel? And why does Laura believe CMOs are losing their seat at the table in the c-suite? Listen in to find out.Resources and links discussed:Connect with Laura: Learn more about VisionEdge Marketing: Check out the Fornaise Marketing Group study: Follow Brian on Twitter: Learn more about Conversion Sciences:
"Marketing needs to generate more leads," says sales. "Sales needs to follow up on the leads we're sending them," says marketing.

This gulf, this canyon, this gaping sinkhole between sales and marketing has been around for a long time. That’s where Chris Wallace (@ChrisWallaceIVG), Co-Founder and President of marketing consulting firm InnerView, comes in.

Having a true understanding of your target customer is the first step in building an effective marketing plan. How are they spending their time?

People like funnels because they provide us with some sense of progress in our marketing efforts, but the marketing funnel is under attack, especially in the B2B lead generation space.Carman Pirie (@pirie) is the co-founder of Kula Partners, an agency built to help leading manufacturers digitally transform marketing and sales to deliver more leads, close more prospects, and grow their competitive edge.The solutions that purport to step into the funnel's place come with their own baggage. The more interactions with someone, the more likely they are to be a prospect, right? However, this approach treats the funnel more like a swarm of flies. People seem to swarm around our content until, finally, and unpredictably, they qualify for a call.Carman believes there's something better than a funnel or a swarm, and his agency delivers that something better.

There is a ceiling on your conversion rate. It's not your price. It's not your copy. It's not your form.It's eating your website from the inside out. It's causing your SEO to atrophy.

It may be....your page load time.On this episode, Lukas Haensch, founder of Pathmonk and former Google performance analyst, is bringing load time down to a level that we can all understand.
