In Seth Godin’s Ted Talk, he makes an excellent point. You may come up with a great idea, but unless you make sure it spreads, no one is going to know about it. He also mentions that people have too many options and not enough time, which is a recipe of having your product ignored. The best way to think is, how am I going to have a product stand out? What channels will I use? Who is my audience?
I work in banking in the IT department, but most of my career was on the retail side. When I worked in sales, we would think, how do we stand out? Customers have so many choices, what makes us great? What will make them move their business to us? Technology is important, keeping up with the times and adapting to customers’ needs will help a product stand out. Being able to adapt know your audience and know how to reach them, will help a company be successful.

Thinking back on everything I have learned in this course and all the additional materials is you have to be willing to change with the needs of your market. In this Ted Talk Seth was talking about how selling on TV doesn’t work anymore. Considering how many people just DVR or pay a premium Hulu subscription just to not deal with ads and commercials anymore.
So how can I use this in my and other integrated marketing strategies in my future endeavors? By sticking to the basics and remaining ethical. What do I mean by that? Having one clear message and one identity across multiple channels. By following the standards and ethics set by AMA. I am leaning towards PR but the ethics are pretty much the same as they are for marketing. Another important basic is knowing the audience so research (which I think is what my college career has prepared me for) will be vital in my potential career. The different strategies, the added practice with making smart goals and learning how to create KPI’s I feel will make me a viable candidate in the job market.
I enjoyed this class.
Good luck everyone!
