The only guarantee in business, life and social media is change. The landscape and ecosystem is changing with every step we take.
It's becoming harder and harder for even the smartest marketers and business leaders to find stable ground for which to build their business.
We must realize that change is the new constant. Accepting this fact and embracing the change with a positive mental and business mindset will make or separate the successful business from the failing. We must accept an increased level of risk and fail fast vs. avoiding risk and being left behind.
Marketers must be willing to let go of the old marketing ways and embrace new ways of doing business. It's time to embrace new technologies, processes, and ways to empower and train employees. We must break down the silos, earn the trust of loyal brand evangelists and realize it's not about us, but about what we can do for others.
We must take down the masks and let our human show. Brand humanization is a requirement, not an option if you want to be in business five years from now.
