As I sit here contemplating the changes and direction we need to go as a company, and as I've completed a few marketing strategies and plans for clients, I see they have taken a new focus. Our plans and strategies are looking at human-centered outcomes rather than focused solely on profit driven ones. With that I am compelled to write and share today what I have been feeling for some time now, and that is that the marketing industry desperately needs an overhaul.
Marketing is long overdue for a drastic overhaul, with brand new systems, principles and laws to help determine success, sustainability and well-being of companies and their customers. It's not just a gut feeling anymore, it feels absolutely and definitely time to re-examine the modus operandi of marketing and it about time we turn to and look at other models particularly those offered in nature, indigenous wisdom traditions, as well as biological and physics models, to re-design and create innovations in marketing.
