7 Mindful Marketing Tips (expires February 3)

As I travel the country and speak with leaders from Google, IHG, Turner, InnerWorkings, Telemundo, and others, I’m encouraged by how the mindful marketing movement has made the shift from Fringe to Main Street. It’s hard to believe that just three years ago, I leapt into the abyss of this topic, unsure how audiences would react.

It’s finally summer here in the Washington, DC region. Now is the time to schedule “innovation vacations” to unplug, reflect, and savor the great outdoors.

Instead of asking you “what’s on your reading list?,” I’m curious to know “What’s on your watch list?”

You will find some cool videos below that we just released. Check out the three complimentary marketing innovation videos below from our annual CMOs Leading Innovation Conference. …

In his presentation at our recent CLIC’ 15 CMOs Leading Innovation Conference, Stuart Foster described his fresh new vision of targeting consumers based on mindsets, and the results this “mindful marketing” has generated at Hilton. You can watch the first part of his presentation below.

Finding your ideal customers’ state of mind is essential for today’s brands to position themselves effectively….

 

Let’s talk about how we design our marketing communities. In Buddhism, we have a term called sangha. This has to do with surrounding yourself with like-minded people who support you in whatever you’re doing.

We need to find our sangha as mindful marketers. In this video, Jamie Gorski, CMO of The Bozzuto Group, and I discuss what’s worked for us over the years. Some of the points we cover include:

The importance and benefits of a peer group (for example, our Marketing Leaders of DC™  community)
Guidelines and ideas for designing your own peer communities
How surrounding yourself with champions can also make you a champion

I invite you to take four minutes to enjoy the video….

 

There are many different strategies involved in mindful marketing, from using intentional language to designing our customer communities in a new way. It can be hard to implement all of these things in our companies at once. Where to begin?

In this video, I offer guidance in setting your mindful marketer priorities. By balancing the business value and strategic fit with the ease of implementation, you can determine which strategies you should pursue now, and which are longer-term investments….

 

What are some practical, everyday ways that marketing leaders can become more mindful?

That’s the question I posed to attendees during my AdWeek DC keynote. What emerged were some extremely thoughtful mindful marketing ideas that I’d like to share with you in this video.

A few highlights:

How to understand and find balance between what is meaningful, rather than just measurable…
Why peer-to-peer interaction and genuine empathy are so crucial in today’s over-“connected”

 

Can we talk for a moment about our marketing habits?

During AdWeek DC, I addressed the topic of marketing habits with Jamie Gorski, CMO of The Bozzuto Group. In our fireside chat, we uncovered the most common mindless marketing habits (including some that will probably surprise you). Here’s a sampling:

Spending too much time on immediate tasks and not enough on innovation (being an “order taker” instead of a “market maker”)
Attending or scheduling too many meetings and meetings that lack focus

The habit that is most detrimental to your effectiveness (and that you might be doing this very second)

By changing these key habits, you can tap into your inner marketing guru and be more effective, every day….
