How do I describe my love for this book? It completely changed my view of marketing. He says it is "seeing what others see. Building tension. Aligning with tribes. Creating ideas that spread. It means doing the hard work of becoming driven by the market and working with (your part of) that market.” Seth Godin is indeed the Father of Modern Marketing.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK

Not just ideas, but markets

“Marketing is the act of making change happen. Making is insufficient. You haven’t made an impact until you’ve changed someone.”

A chance to serve

Marketing is the generous act of helping someone solve a problem. Their problem.

It’s a chance to change the culture for the better.

Marketing involves very little in the way of shouting, hustling, or coercion.

It’s a chance to serve, instead

“anchoring your work deeply in the dreams, desires, and communities of those you seek to serve. It’s about changing people for the better, creating work you can be proud of. And it’s about being a driver of the market, not simply being market-driven.”

  1. The first step is to invent a thing worth making, with a story worth telling, and a contribution worth talking about.
  2. The second step is to design and build it in a way that a few people will particularly benefit from and care about.
  3. The third step is to tell a story that matches the built-in narrative and dreams of that tiny group of people, the smallest viable market.
  4. The fourth step is the one everyone gets excited about: spread the word.
  5. The last step is often overlooked: show up—regularly, consistently, and generously, for years and years

Form deep connections

It has to resonate with the listener, to tell them something they’ve been waiting to hear, something they’re open to believing. It has to invite them on a journey where a change might happen. And then, if you’ve opened all those doors, it has to solve the problem, to deliver on the promise.

Why Do We Market?

no. We aren’t running Facebook ads to make quick conversions on Shopify (and proceed with caution before buying that course).

We market to make change. Your product or service is solving a problem, it is changing someones life into a better life. 

In this book, Seth Godin goes into depth about how one should market any and everything. 

He would know a thing or two, being the founder of two major companies. (One was aquired by yahoo). He also has an extremely successful blog and social media presence.
