When marketing isn’t enough

Seth Godin likes to say that all marketers are liars, and the question for us is whether we can keep that up. The Web increasingly prevents lying from working. Whether it’s because customers investigate your claims or because they tell each other their experiences with you. It gets harder and harder for you to pull the wool over their eyes. I had a chance to speak on this topic last week at the New Jersey chapter meeting of the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG) and thought you might be interested in seeing my slides, “When Marketing Isn’t Enough.”
