TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: The One Thing That No Marketer Is Going to Tell You
  • [00:35] The best tactics are not what’s in marketers’ podcasts and blogs.
  • [01:10] Marketers will not share their number one “thing”.
  • [01:40] Marketers won’t necessarily know how to grow your business; their tactics will be standardized.
  • [02:19] Facebook was naturally awesome, your product may not be that good.
  • [02:30] Even the best marketers may not know how to solve your growth issues.
  • [02:50] It’s all experimentation and it’s a numbers game.
  • [03:37] Marketers will steal each other’s tactics and try to use them, even though they may not work for their specific problem.
  • [04:08] Make sure you have a system of process to follow when experimenting.
  • [04:29] Don’t expect the world from marketers: what worked in the past, won’t work today; what worked for one business may not work for another.
  • [05:22] That’s it for today!
