Inside Seth Godin’s Mind: Marketing, Human Behavior and How to Impact Change

Seth Godin is an influential marketing expert globally and the creator of one of the most read blogs globally, Seth’s Blog. There, he publishes numerous contributions related to the digital world. During his talk, participants gained a unique perspective on what the future holds for marketers and how to position themselves for maximum advantage. One of the ways proposed to determine the impact of a brand is the question, “Will your audience miss you if you are gone?”. 

He also left a message for all professionals dealing with imposter syndrome, “take small steps and keep sharing your work. A good marketer is built from experience; the more copies you write or, the more strategies you develop, the more experience you will gain to enhance your work.”

He highlighted the importance for brands to be memorable and have a specific audience to target with stories they want to hear. Currently, we must look for the target audience who is best related to what we want to offer; wanting to reach everyone is losing the opportunity to personalize the message of brands. Storytelling continues to be an important element to connect with audiences in an honest and real way.

The future of marketing is resilience and adaptability

The way we approach audiences and the technology that enables us to reach people worldwide are evolving. The only way to make marketing closer and more effective is to understand what users need and keep up with the advances in technology.
