12 Marketing Minds, One Free eBook


If you’re trying to kick off your 2009 marketing plans with some new ideas, you may want to check out a new (free) ebook put together by Valeria Maltoni over at Conversation Agent. The book is a compilation of the thoughts of twelve online marketers from a variety of backgrounds and skips the usual start of the year prediction model in favor of sharing thoughts on tactics and strategy.

All of the marketers involved are on Twitter and have their own blogs, so take a gander at their thoughts and then follow them online to gather more. I’ve listed some of the authors below along with my favorite quote of theirs from the ebook to give you a quick sampling.

Jennifer Laycock is the Editor of Search Engine Guide, the Social Media Faculty Chair for MarketMotive and offers small business social media strategy & consulting. Jennifer enjoys the challenge of finding unique and creative ways to connect with consumers without spending a fortune in marketing dollars. Though she now prefers to work with small businesses, Jennifer’s clients have included companies like Verizon, American Greetings and Highlights for Children.

Thank you so much for making the time to participate, Jennifer. I really like the quotes you selected and enjoyed learning more about the collective insights.

Thanks for the heads up on this book. I’m always looking for fresh new ideas, and a compilation of marketing minds sounds great for the new year.

This looks great.

I would challenge the:

“If a company does nothing else in 2009, it should put a social media monitoring system in place to tune into what’s being talked about online about their company, products, people, competitors and category. “

Social media is about conversations and the value is in participation, moreover 93% of consumers expect brand to engage.

Too often people outsource or monitor “IT” Come on

People don’t learn to fly by watching birds 🙂

If a company does nothing else in 2009, it should find the people in their organization that are the most “socially enabled” ( already do this on the personal side, gifted for networking…) , the change agents and engage with ONE of their target community.

Let’s call it testing the water.
