Serial Marketer #259: 2 Types of Marketers

Also, going to CES?

----------------------------------------------------
SERIAL MARKETER WEEKLY
Issue 259: 2 Types of Marketers
Brought to you by: AI Marketing Tools to Save You💰 &
----------------------------------------------------

I was on a call with an Israeli startup founder who noted how hard it is for companies there to find strong marketing & sales leads in the US.

He said the ones that make the most noise usually aren’t the ones who do the best work.

I told him that it’s funny because often the best sales & marketing people I know, including most of the roster of FOAF, are usually too focused on marketing their clients or employers to properly market themselves.

Both sides have something to learn from the other.

If you’re going to build a personal brand, you’ve got to be able to back up your claims with capabilities, and the burden of proof may be even higher that you can do what a given job calls for.

And if you’re so heads down with your work that you’ve all but disappeared, you may miss out on some of the best opportunities.

Balance, right?

Meanwhile, I’m gearing up for my 15th Consumer Electronics Show. Going? Let’s meet up there, or compare notes after if we can’t.

Also, email me so I can send you my collection of event/party lists, and possibly a few other invites.

Going to CES 2024?

Like, you know, Vegas?

Meanwhile, I hope your new year is off to a wonderful start. I was home New Year’s Eve, a 15-minute walk from Times Square where my billboard for FOAF was running right between the Old Navy and McDonald’s.

Thanks Five Tier for the ad plays, and thanks FOAFer Andy Brenits for the new logo. (The ad itself was my doing… in a rush to find something, I adapted a Canva template of a milk ad and rewrote the copy.)

Meanwhile, a bit after returning from CES, I’ll be giving a talk, AI Marketing Tools to Save You💰 & ⏰ . I’m sure I’ll be prepping it until it’s time to go on, but so far, I can tell you that I’m packing a ton into this one, and even if you can’t make it live, I’ll send you the recording and deck. Hope you can check this one out.

See you in Vegas, the next First Wednesday (we’ll have a sponsor, and it’ll be a fun one), in one of the communities, or anywhere else.

Here for you as we kick off this year right. You can check out my roster of resources here: http://bit.ly/howdavidcanhelp.
