Marketing is dead. Time to get rid of your ‘Marketing’ department…

ceo

Marketing, as we know it, is dead. In fact, it’s been dead for a while. Bill Lee declared it in 2012 in a Harvard Business Review article. That’s cause for celebration! Let’s be honest, who wants to be ‘marketed’ to anymore? No one.

If I had a company I wouldn’t have a marketing department. Not only that, I would eliminate the word ‘marketing’ altogether.

There are studies proving that even just the word has huge negative connotations.

Who wants to be marketed to anymore? No one.

If you use LinkedIn regularly you’ve probably heard of the phrase ‘social selling’. Let’s look at what social selling means (or doesn’t mean) before we move on.

  • Social selling doesn’t mean selling stuff on social media. It’s not referring to social media ads or any kind of post that says ‘buy now’ or ‘shop now’.
  • Social selling does means using social media as a tool to engage with your sales prospects online. Basically, ‘social selling’ is how everyone should be using LinkedIn –  networking (online) with contacts. ‘Online schmoozing’ as one of my training course delegates phrased it nicely the other day.

How to create your own blog on LinkedIn

writing

Did you know that you can write and publish your own content on LinkedIn? Lots of people are not aware of this option even though they spend time on LinkedIn every week.

Just to be clear – when I say ‘publish your own content’ I don’t mean sharing the URLs of articles as status updates (which lots of people do!) – I mean using LinkedIn as a blogging platform.

Why should you do it?

Publishing your own content regularly on LinkedIn is:

  1. An effective way to keep in the forefront of your connections’ minds – every time you publish a post your connections will be notified that you have published something.
  2. A great way to show off your professional expertise. Taking the time to write your own content about your industry is impressive and shows you are passionate and care about what you do.
