Using Your Marketing Skills for GOOD

Sean Luitjens
Chief Marketing Officer for uFlexReward

You know you’re doing a good job if everyone’s complaining equally about what you’re doing.

Episode Summary

Sean Luitjens — Chief Marketing Officer for uFlexReward — joins Connor to discuss how marketers can use their expertise for good. Find out when, and why, it pays to be dumb, where to focus your marketing efforts, and how to get the best return on your marketing investment. Plus, learn about the hidden danger of relying on a brand ambassador.

Key Takeaways

  • One secret to marketing success is trying NOT to be the smartest person in the room. Surround yourself with smart people, take their feedback to heart, and learn from them.
  • Don’t focus your messaging on what you offer and why it’s cool. Focus on the outcomes your product creates for clients.
  • When you have a long sales cycle, it’s crucial to pinpoint your best chances for maximum ROI. A hundred leads is great, but five of the RIGHT leads is better.
