Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Startups Disrupt To Win
Agree with Zachary Gerhman (@ZachGersh). There is no reason to devote money and years of your life to an incremental improvement on what is already out there when there are such HUGE needs virtually untouched.

A few months ago I wrote about how Internet marketing must disrupt to win (http://scenttrail.blogspot.com/2012/12/why-your-internet-marketing-must.html) in this well written and comprehensive post on startups Zachary conclusively argues the same idea for startups.

Zachary is working on a sequel so stay tuned.

Content Marketing is beyond the tipping point and that is both the good and bad news. Good news if you are trying to sell the concept of content marketing. Bad news if you are behind (and you are always behind someone in Internet markting). The key to success is DISRUPTION, finding ways to bend, manipulate and change content marketing so you do it just a little better.This post discusses how to become a disruptive content marketer.

5 Ways To Disrupt Your Internet Marketing [ + Marty Note For Startups]

5 Ways To Disrupt Your Internet Marketing  [ + Marty Note For Startups] | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

I don't like to say Internet marketers MUST do things without sharing HOW to do them.


This follow up piece to Why Your Internet Marketing Must Disrupt To Win shares 5 ways to disrupt your business vertical. Here are 5 ways you set THEIR (your competitors) houses on fire while your Internet marketing goes into overdrive. 

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

You might think startups are disruptive on their face. To be a startup is to be disruptive. Yeah, not so much as it turns out. Startups are often highly disruptive around their invention and highly conventional in the rest of their approach. 

In my Startup Heroes articles for Technorati I interviewed a number of successful entrepreneurs. Every startup who achieved scale understood how to play the Chinese Finger Puzzle game of Internet marketing. 

Startups such as ShareFile, sold to Citrix for $50M, balanced disruptive roots with becoming an adult, with growing up and responding to a quickly maturing marketplace with more disruption. 

Content marketing is a rapidly maturing idea. We are beyond the tipping point now so low hanging fruit was eaten by others. This means you must DISRUPT to win.


Hate to welcome a new generation of small businesses to Internet marketing just in time to say what you thought you would be doing, content marketing, isn't going to be enough by half. 

Sorry and welcome to Internet marketing.
