Seth Godin has a great post this morning on Marketing Lessons from the US Election. Well worth the read.
Here’s the quick summary:
- Stories really matter
- TV is over
- Permission matters
- Marketing is tribal
- Motivating the committed outperforms persuading the uncommitted
- Attack ads don’t always work
- We get what we deserve (ex: buy from telemarketers, and you’re going to get more telemarketers)
I would add an eight point: sometimes, we don’t get what we deserve. Thankfully.
