People Marketing: How I Learned To Love People - Curagami via @ScentTrail

People Marketing: How I Learned To Love People - Curagami via @ScentTrail | AtDotCom Social media |

People Marketing shares hard won tips, ideas and stories about loving, curating, listening to your people to create winning online marketing.

We included this link in our Startups Revoluiton because startups are so WIDGET focused they forget PEOPLE provide the context and emotional connection needed to SELL. It is understandable that YOU love your widget, but your customers love THEMSELVES much more.

Creating "like me" moments mean your "product" becomes a movement your customers want to join. This journey from YOU and THEM (customers) to WE is the most important journey every website and all marketing is on whether the creators know it or not.

Contagious: Why Some Things Go VIRAL Jonah Berger [video]

We all know ideas and information spread through word of mouth. But according to Berger, the key to making things really popular happens long before it's dis...

Marty Note
What is the "science" behind social transmission? Only 7% of SHARES comes online. Vast majority of Word-of-Mouth happens face-to-face. Why do things get talked about and shared?

Half of what is in Tipping Point is WRONG. Focus so much on special people we ignore what is really important - the message. Need to understand the psychology of sharing.

Social Currency
Shares story of Please Don't Tell, the secret bar in NYC. Social currency effects how people see us. We like to share things that make us look smart and in the know. 

Why is Rebecca Black's video viral? over 300M views? Why? Triggers are stimulus that make us think about something else. Triggers make products, ideas or memes "Top of Mind".  Black, by calling her song Friday, linked to a trigger. 

Disneyland gets out viraled by Cheerios because we eat breakfast daily but only go to Disneyland every now and again. Corona has made the beach a trigger.

Coffee with Kit Kat messaging created a great trigger because you drink more coffee than you eat chocolate. By linking Kit Kat to coffee the trigger (coffee) makes people think about having chocolate.

Trojan Horses
All stories have a "surprise inside" like Will It Blend. A story or message that carries the brand for the ride.

How Your Website Can Become A Hero's Journey - ScentTrail Marketing

How Your Website Can Become A Hero's Journey - ScentTrail Marketing | AtDotCom Social media |

Most Internet marketers agree. Your website must be heroic, a quest of and for greatness. But how can your marketing make customers heroes? Here's How:

Ways To Make Your Customers Heroes Online

* Gamification (nothing like social kudos to reinforce a heroic journey).

* Curate and Use UGC (User Generated Content). 

* Contests (who has the best Tough Mudder Pinterest board etc...).

* Leaderboards (part of gamification, but a constant reminder that a game is going on NOW). 


Website design tips and several examples of "heroic" websites are included. If you know of great heroic online experiences please share so we can curate in.
