Ready for amazing word of mouth? We’re bringing together an all-star group of word of mouth marketers for Word of Mouth Supergenius: The “How to be Great at Word of Mouth Marketing” Conference on December 16 in Chicago. We’ll feature 12 how-to classes, 12 real-world case studies, and 6 brilliant authors. You’re going to learn practical, hands-on techniques to get people talking about you the next day.
Our lineup of speakers includes word of mouth supergenius John Jantsch, author of Duct Tape Marketing: The World’s Most Practical Small Business Marketing Guide. Here John shares a few of the ideas he’ll be discussing in his author session:
- It’s about connecting, not automation. The best companies are using the latest communication tools not for automation or as “just another tactic,” but to truly connect and create relationships with customers.
- Study first, spend later. Before you pull out your wallet on a big campaign, John recommends testing on small scales with cheap (or free) tools to find what works.
- Focus on meeting the customer’s best interests. Doing so — even when you’re on a tiny budget — forces you to be more creative, and often as a result, more authentic.
