Public Sector Marketing and Communication Leadership: Multi-directional learners, multi-colored spiky hair, and wearing multiple hats (episode #31‪)‬ How I Made it in Marketing

    • Marketing

“Form a cohesive picture of value,” Flint McGlaughlin taught in Above-the-Fold Psychology: How to optimize the top 4 inches of your webpage (https://meclabs.com/course/sessions/above-the-fold-psychology/).
Not only can that approach help you get more “yes” answers to your conversion goals, it can help you judiciously use the word “no” as well, a topic I discuss with the latest guest on the How I Made It In Marketing podcast.
You can hear that conversation, filled with lesson-filled stories from her career, in my discussion with Ariel Glassman, Director of Marketing, Sage Communications (https://www.aboutsage.com/). Glassman has worked in small businesses in the federal government marketing space for 20 years and has worn many hats in her career.
Stories (with lessons) about what she made in marketing
Humble leaders provide more than expertise and direction.Successful business happens when the focus is on relationship building, not the transactions. Plus, it’s much more rewarding and fun! Don’t hesitate to say ‘yes’ when presented with a cool, unique opportunity (carpe diem).Flexibility and agility are key components of a successful collaboration.Be aware of your limits; challenge them; push them; know when to say ‘no’ – especially when you have people on your team who specialize in the tasks that need to be done.Trust your gut and have patienceRelated content mentioned in this episode
