“Kip is the gold standard of the marketing industry. His unmatched expertise and ability to create successful solutions made him an exceptional choice to create and lead a new training program in marketing principles and strategic communication for the U.S. Government, and provide key insights at a communications seminar I arranged for senior officials at the National Security Council, State Department and Department of Defense.”
I’ve been a marketer for 30 years and have lived in Silicon Valley since 2002. I’ve assumed marketers have reached the logical conclusion they are going to have to make significant changes to the way they listen and respond to their customers via the explosive growth of various social media channels, such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.
But this view is not universally shared by marketers…not at all. Too many marketers don’t see the need to change what they’ve traditionally done…it’s too early or too risky.
