Key takeaways from this episode:
- Believe in your product. Steve mentioned that the best way to sell your product is to truly believe in it and the benefits it can bring to your life. By getting to know BombBomb’s product and the power it had to impact his own life, Steve was ultimately led to join the company as CMO and ultimately infuse his role with passion.
- Events are a microcosm of the marketing space. Steve made an insightful point about events being a microcosm for the entire marketing space because convincing customers to attend the event is a big ask in itself. Once the guests have made the commitment to show up to an event, the job of the marketer becomes building trust and rapport through face-to-face contact.
- Humanize your interaction with customers. As the author of Rehumanize Your Business and Human-Centered Communication, Steve knows all about the importance of bringing the human element back into the marketing conversation. When it comes to communication, Steve suggests asking tough questions like “why would someone be drawn to engage with this video, email or campaign?” so you can gain a better understanding of connecting with your customer on a human-to-human level.
