Marketing notes

Some notes from the Marketing Breakout Sessions January 22, 2014 at College of the Canyons University Center:

  1. Know your audience.
  2. Keep your branding the same.
  3. 2 Words, 2 Seconds, 2 Day: the ‘222’ rule, mainly for email. “Got milk?”
  4. Ask questions in the Subject line
  5. Maintain a qualified list of recipients. Be consistent.
  6. If you have email/Facebook, use it at least monthly.
  7. Connect with people on their terms. If they don’t have email, go ’80’s on them with Thank You notes, pending events. For elderly, get close relative’s email.
  8. 80/20 rule. 80% of the email has to be about them.

Typical spokes on a website wheel:

  1. Blog
  2. Social media
  3. Paid social media
  4. Email (most important)
  5. PR/Articles/Print media
  6. Niche Sites

Sample spokes pointing to hub center:


“If there are no responses, you’re not a failure. It just didn’t work.”


“Marketing is about eliciting a physical and measurable response.”
