No one had heard of Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces. An important marketing lesson - MAF278

This week let's talk about why we should assume our customers know nothing when planning our marketing.

And something that happened at my first in-person event since February 2021.

It's just me and the mic and this is episode 278 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

• How each industry has it's own language and jargon that can put customers off

• The phenomenon of live audio platforms - Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces

• Preparing a workshop on using live audio platforms

• The shock of finding out no one had heard of Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces

• The danger of "shiny toy" syndrome we marketers often fall for
