Seth Godin – The Marketing Seminar: Summer Session
When the customer thanks you for your marketing
Most of us cringe at the thought of interrupting, hyping, and manipulating the people we’re marketing to. We don’t want to stoop to all of the high-maintenance, high-pressure, spin-filled stuff that the experts tell us we need to embrace. And we certainly don’t want to spend our lives in social media, fighting for likes and attention.
Marketing doesn’t have to be this way. It doesn’t have to be a disdainful activity, one that you do poorly, under duress.
In fact, the best marketing is something we do with people, and for them. The best marketing is thrilling, effective and generous. The best marketing is something you can learn how to do.
You can do marketing you are proud of

More customized than a book, safer than real-world testing, and proven to work
Your projects. Your questions. Your problems.
Most courses on marketing don’t talk about your projects. Most books on marketing don’t examine the details of your problems. Most webinars don’t answer your follow-up questions. And there isn’t a consultant in the world who can read your mind to help you through your confusion.
The result? You haven’t made the change that you hope to create. Maybe it’s time to try a different approach.
The Marketing Seminar is a better way forward that’s proven to work. Now in its third session, the Seminar has transformed thousands of careers, from entrepreneurs with no marketing experience to directors in established organizations.
Through more than 50 videos taught by Seth Godin released over 100 days, you learn the basic skills for successful modern marketing. But more important, the videos are paired with 200+ questions designed to guide you to new insights and strategies for your immediate work—no matter where you are in your career. All questions and answers are shared on the discussion boards—a confidential space to discuss and test out ideas with professional peers around the world, available 24/7.
The cost of hiding your voice
The best way to learn marketing is in context—by doing it, by talking about the specifics of a case. It’s possible that you haven’t found the key to making a bigger impact because there hasn’t been a learning space for you to share the particulars of your problem.
It’s also possible that you don’t feel ready to talk. I’m not ready, I’m not sure, I need to learn more before I can contribute… The problem with of all these thoughts is that no one can help you move forward until you speak up. It’s time to stop hiding.
The cost of hiding and waiting is clear. Graduates of The Marketing Seminar have already begun to see the real world transformation in their work. By thinking through the questions accompanying each video, asking questions, discussing with others, Seminar participants have found insights that have unlocked their hardest challenges and have opened doors to fresh opportunities. With the new skills and ideas, they feel prepared to lead lasting change in their companies, organizations, and communities—in ways that are ethical and effective.
