What David Meerman Scott Talks About:

The New Rules of Marketing & PR
Want to generate attention in today's always-on, Web-driven world? The answer isn't just slapping social media onto dusty old strategies. The rules have changed. David Meerman Scott cuts through the confusing new communication landscape and lays out meaningful, measurable and no-cost strategies to instantly reach your audiences directly. This informative, entertaining and high-energy presentation shows the best examples of success from a wide variety of large and small organizations -- from business-to-business outfits to rock bands, nonprofits to entrepreneurial growth businesses. Scott energizes people to put fear aside and inspires them with confidence to apply new thinking: social media are the tools - but Real-Time is the crucial mindset. With a rebel's heart, Scott abandons the controlled and message-driven advertising and PR paradigm. He shows how to win the hearts and minds of your audience using blogs, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Newsjacking, and other new tools -- by creating content that they're eager to share.

Grow Your Business Now!
Today's communications revolution presents tremendous growth opportunities for those who know how to tap this once-in-a-millennium transformation. Gone are the days of planning marketing and public relations programs to suit your timetable. It's a Real-Time world now -- if you're not engaged, you've opened doors for your competition. David Meerman Scott shows how to make the power of Real-Time to work for you! His inspiring, high-energy presentations are tailored to each audience, revealing ways to generate attention for products and services in minutes (not months.) Audiences walk away with relevant and actionable ideas: how to develop (or refine) products or services based on feedback from customers or events in the marketplace; how to engage when people are eager to do business; how to make speed and agility a competitive weapon; how to get the media talking about you; and much more. Real-Time business means acting first -- and -- while your competitors scramble to adjust, opening new channels that grow your brand. Scott shows how to succeed NOW . . . in Real-Time.

Agile Selling In a Real-Time World
The ongoing communications revolution has profoundly affected how sales and service is done. Buyers are now in charge! Referencing blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook and other Web-based tools, they often bypass the traditional selling model altogether - learning for themselves about your products/services, your competitors, and what customers say about you (whether true or not!). Don't struggle to adjust to this new environment - be agile and master it. David Meerman Scott inspires audiences with fresh, real-world tested strategies and tactics for establishing and maintaining relationships and building new business. The key is an agile Real-Time mindset and an arsenal of new communication tools. Scott shows how to use them to win hearts and minds by creating low-cost (and no-cost!), measurable strategies and tactics that help buyers you don't yet know discover you! He shows why the best salespeople have become information curators - communicating by delivering the precise information that buyers need at just the right time and in just the right way. Agile, Real-Time selling means gaining more customers with fewer resources - and David Meerman Scott shows you how to make it happen.
