Interruption marketing vs. Engagement marketing

Enagagment marketing


1. Create influence 2. Influence leads to intimacy 3. Intimacy leads to involvement 4. Involvement leads to the ultimate goal: Interation

Engaging in a conversation with with peers, customers and staff, innovating with them and constantly improving your value proposition in an authentic way. Customers have the power, the information, the advice and the resources to make their own decisions, in the digital world its about joining the conversation. It's about transparency and allowing consumers to participate and shape your brand based on authentic interactions between your employees, product or service and your customers. It also turns the traditional marketing paradigm on its head -- using the interaction with one to spread "affect and influence" thru their personal network.
