MOST MARKETERS ARE IMPOSTERS
November 8, 2011
Hosted by Bob Pritchard
Research shows that between 85% and 95% of all marketing and advertising does not work. In the US over $100 billion is spent per annum and some $90 billion is wasted! Why do we keep doing it? There is a better way! Over the past twenty years there’s been monumental changes in the number and variety of marketing vehicles, the viewing, listening and communication patterns of the target audience, and rapid changes in technology. Yet, most agencies and their clients do not understand what marketing is, far less how to use the new media; what works, what doesn't in today’s environment. I’ll tell you what works and what doesn't. I have two great guests, Tim Draper, The Prince of Silicon Valley, the creator of viral marketing and the force behind Hotmail and Skype; and Mary Bird, former entertainer and writer who worked with Gene Simmons from KISS and is getting amazing publicity with a product called Car Masutra. We also address great marketing screw ups and answer listeners' questions.
