Here are 3 free webinars you might want to take advantage of. You might not agree with these opinions, but hey, it’s a good idea to get out of the echo chamber once and awhile, don’t you think? Try these online sessions for a little brain stretching:
Moving Marketing From “The Money Spenders” to The Money MAKERS
April 15, 2009 noon ET Jonathan Salem Baskin, Jim Sterne, Jim Novo
With 10% of marketing executives being perceived as strategic and influential by the C-suite there’s clearly a crisis of confidence. I’ve mentioned Jonathan’s blog and book before and here’s a chance to hear a bit of the inside story. You’ll learn how to exceed expectations of both C-suite executives and customers, neutralize political feuds by organizing cross-departmentally, and how to stop thinking like a reporter and start acting like an advisor
Everything They’ve Told You About Marketing Is Wrong
April 21, 2009 1pm ET Ron Shevlin
Are you sick and tired of reading the same old blah, blah, blah, from the so- called marketing experts who just tell you stuff you already know? Then you need to attend this session as the grumpy old man cuts through the morass of bad advice and introduces you to the must-dos in the new world of marketing. I know Ron personally (as in offline) and even if you disagree, you will be entertained.
What Online Marketers Can Teach Offline Colleagues (and vice versa)
May 19, 2009 noon ET Kevin Hillstrom, Akin Arikan, and Jim Novo
A WAA event, open to both members and non-members. Web analysts are not the first to grapple with multiple channels. Traditional marketers have always had to illuminate customer behavior across stores, call center, direct mail, etc. So, rather than reinventing the wheel in each camp, what proven methods can you teach each other? Three different but aligned approaches on solving the multichannel puzzle, should be something for everyone here.
Take your brain out for some exercise, will ya?
