The Future of Marketing Has Little To Do With Marketing – Brian Solis

Since my background studies basically resume to marketing and advertising, I find it best to start my blogging journey by sharing with you a really inspiring text, written by Brian Solis, on the subject of how the marketing industry is evolving. When it comes down to it, everyone – or, at least everyone who is constantly being challenged by this reality – is on the same page. It’s not that unfrequent to see marketing and communication professionals  thinking and commenting on how much paradigms are changing. It really is true that, nowadays, we kind of have to know just about a little bit on, well, basically, everything. We also went from apparently dealing with 4 P’s to having to think about the 7 C’s, and new theories of what’s next seem to appear almost everyday…

It can get a little scary sometimes, specially if you start over-thinking things and constantly find yourself dwelling on the dead end question What should I do next? Everything I’ve learnt on marketing seems to be sooo outdated.

Well, Brian Solis seems to have brought up the issue in a quite inspiring way 🙂

But you? You’re at the forefront of a new era and marketing communications and its future is in your hands.
