TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: Should You Coin Your Own Terms For Marketing?
  • [00:36] We have talked about this in the past. Our mutual friend, Brian Dean came up with the skyscraper technique.
  • [01:12] Most people are coining hundreds of terms, but only a handful are taking off.
  • [01:35] Neil would rather ride the coattails of a term, rather than inventing one.
  • [02:04] Let someone else build the demand, while you go in and fill it.
  • [03:11] It’s ok not to be the first-mover.
  • [03:25] Drift invented the term “conversational marketing”, but Hubspot came up with the more popular “inbound marketing”.

  • [04:21] That’s it for today!
