What will jumpstart my learning project?
Looking no further than my iPhone, a few apps already have valuable marketing content. During my morning news ritual, I’ll scan a post from these 3 areas.
Linchpin was my introduction to Seth in 2010, and I’ve been a fan ever since. His “don’t snowglobe me, bro” became a rallying cry on my corporate communications team to focus on our audience and our customers.
Third, my Harvard Business Review subscription has a custom news feed. I’m now following the topics of branding, customer service, data, marketing and market research.
It was easy to get started with the iPad app. It’s loaded with beautiful images, plus you can use your own photos. It has great templates for social media platforms, presentations, posters and more.
As I write this post, I haven’t yet included any women who are marketing thought leaders. So I’ll go with Ann Handley. She’s head of content at MarketingProfs and the author of Everybody Writes, a quite engaging book I started reading this weekend.
The most delightful learning from this post is how much marketing-related reading I’ve been doing all along. I’m not really starting from scratch, after all.
Like most things in life, we know more than we think we do. We just have to claim it.
