THINKING BUSINESS
a blog by Chris Barrow

This is Marketing

I did write a Goodreads review of Seth Godin’s latest book “This is Marketing” but feel motivated to make further mention of this excellent publication.

“This is Marketing” is a compilation of many of things we have read in his blog and heard in the “Akimbo” podcast but serves as a timely reminder of his wisdom on the subject of growing our businesses.

For me the biggest takeaways were:

  1. the differences between direct marketing, brand marketing and relationship marketing – it really is crucial that you “get this” and understand the pain and pleasures of each and how they fit into your business plan;

  2. the differences between vision, strategy, goals and tasks and how they must be aligned and understood by all of your team;

  3. the importance of building communities that are populated by your smallest viable market – that what you do isn’t for everybody.

An essential read for all small business owners facing the challenges of corporate competition and online attention disorder.
