Modern Marketing News:
When I was growing up about 75 years ago almost everybody was self-employed. Yea, some farmers had a helping hand or two and a business in town might have a helper for a day or two but usually not on a full time basis.
As I see the situation today things are coming to full circle and in a pretty fast way. Full time jobs are hard to find and when one is found it does't pay enough to sustain a family. People are looking more and more into finding something they can do on their own. This is either making something to sell, selling something for someone else or offering some kind of service.
The point I am working on here is that I believe two trends are coming together and they are going to enforce each other. The two trends that are emerging is entrepreneurship and inbound social neural networking.
Also, when I was growing up towns were very small because most people lived out in the country. The people that lived in town were the owners of the businesses, officials and maintenance people. So, that is how I am going to relate, in my mind, the first application of inboard marketing.
As, I stated above most people lived out in the country so the business people had to wait for them to come to town to buy something. The business people finally decided they needed to do something to draw people into town on a regular basis so business was conducted on a more routine schedule. So, the businesses got together and decided to host exciting events on certain days that would draw the country people into town all at once. The businesses would prepare their stores with specials and special merchandise just set up for that day. This was in fact inbound marketing because all the different businesses banded together in a co-op to pay for the advertising and overhead of the event. They all had different agendas but the event benefited them all because of the increased traffic.
