Bryan Kramer will be speaking at the next Norcal BMA chapter meeting on May 20 on the topic of sharing. Come one, come all, and get a better understanding of harnessing the art of sharing to further your business.
@bryankramer will walk us through how technologies like video, social media and mobile have increased the ease of communication so much that we need to rethink how sharing ideas influences people on a global scale.
Bryan's first book, There's no B2B or B2C: It's Human to Human: #H2H, was a resounding success as it addresses core human dynamics of sharing.
Building on the basics from that book, Bryan developed a platform to help us use sharing to achieve our business objectives. He'll talk about the evolution of H2H thinking and how his #shareology platform provides actionable steps to follow.
It is common knowledge that both B2B and B2C have an individual at the other end of the handshake - a human being, juggling a whole slew of factors affecting the decision-making.
So, why not focus on the humanness of the customers, rather than pigeon-holing them into B2B or B2C? That's the basic premise of the H2H manifesto. A relationship built on the human at the core will be longer lasting and we'll gain a stronger ally. This can't be bad for business!
Bryan reminds us of the basics of human interaction in the first book: the four rules of social context, six basic human needs, the human need to be disruptive, among others. The book ends with ideas for marketers to follow.
In his talk, Bryan will address some of these specifics and shed more light on the shareology platform.
In his 2014 TED talk, Bryan demonstrated the power of sharing by sparking spontaneous sharing right in the middle of the talk that resulted in 21 million impressions in just 4 hours, spanning the globe to over 10 countries!
An engaging speaker, Bryan will share key ideas you can take with you for marketing your business in this still new and fast developing world of global communication and sharing.
But, as always, you've got to be there to get it all. Sign up to reserve your spot.
I also invite you to comment below a burning question you wish to ask Bryan during the talk. We'll make sure Bryan addresses your concern.
The biggest concern I have is the scalability of the social media approach in its full splendor. I, for one, will be looking to see Bryan's take on it.
