Are you using technology that creates barriers between you and your customers? Because spam, robocalls, and LinkedIn automations may just force customers to block you.

Or are you doubling down on things you know that your customers respond to, like a human voice that’s friendly, accessible, and even vulnerable?

To put it another way, marketing needs to forget about manipulating people and focus instead on coming alongside others to help them at their point of need.

Today’s guest, Mark Schaefer, arrived at marketing by way of journalism, psychology, and sociology. He points out that because marketing has lost its connection to emotion, this has resulted in the removal of the human voice from the center of marketing. He believes that the most human company wins.

Mark is Chief Operating Officer at B Squared Media, Adjunct Marketing Professor at Rutgers University, Executive Director at Schaefer Marketing Solutions, author of {grow} (one of the world’s top marketing blogs), and author of several books, including KNOWN, Marketing Rebellion and Cumulative Advantage.

Among the topics covered in our conversation are…

How to make your customer your best marketer
Why a culture of customer centricity is essential to your business
Why the human voice is necessary in effective marketing
Why fractures translate to business opportunities
How to “be the hand” (not just lend a hand)
