From Fortune 300 to Entrepreneur: 7 Contrarian Lessons on Marketing

As someone who led marketing for Fortune 300 companies and now owns a full-service marketing agency, I’ve learned a thing or two about marketing that I wish I knew when I was starting out. In this blog post, I’ll share 7 contrarian lessons that can help you build a successful marketing strategy.

Lesson 1: Focus on your audience, not your product Contrary to popular belief, successful marketing is not about selling your product. It’s about understanding your audience and what motivates them to buy. Focus on building a relationship with your audience by providing value and solving their problems.

Lesson 2: Embrace authenticity People can spot inauthenticity from a mile away. Embrace your brand’s unique voice and personality and use it to connect with your audience on a deeper level.

Lesson 3: Take risks Playing it safe rarely leads to success in marketing. Don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things. Sometimes the biggest rewards come from the biggest risks.

Lesson 4: Measure everything To build a successful marketing strategy, you need to know what’s working and what’s not. Track and measure your marketing efforts so you can make informed decisions about where to invest your time and money.

Lesson 5: Use data to inform your decisions Gone are the days of making marketing decisions based on gut instinct. Use data to inform your decisions and optimize your strategy for success.

Lesson 6: Build a community Marketing is not a one-way street. Build a community around your brand and engage with your audience on a regular basis. This will help you build a loyal following and create brand ambassadors.

Lesson 7: Stay adaptable Marketing is constantly evolving. Stay up-to-date with the latest trends and be willing to adapt your strategy as needed. Don’t be afraid to pivot if something isn’t working.
