Connected consumers want to trust your brand

Hi people,

This is the view from the place (La Dullive, Gland in Switzerland) where I often go swimming during the summer. Now we are in mid-October, water temperatures are about 15 degrees, and I still want to go swimming;-)

But before I go swimming, let me just share with you my thoughts on today’s connected consumers.

A few days ago, I attended an interesting conference where discussions were around risks and opportunities in a data-driven world. At some point, the audience had to debate about privacy versus personalization. And to my surprise, the majority of the people, want actually more privacy. But as a marketer, that’s a clear signal that today’s consumers, especially the connected consumers, do not trust your brand. What can you do?

I think we need to take this opportunity and start building again trust through human interactions, human connections and putting the human element back into the center of everything we do in marketing. I know it’s a lot of effort and a lot of time. But to me, that’s the only way if you want to build a trusted and long-lasting brand.

If you would like to discuss your marketing challenges, please feel free to reach out to me and I’m happy to help.

But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything will be alright.

Alright, it’s time to go swimming now.

Take good care and talk to you soon. Bye.

Greetings from a Swiss mountain guy;-)

TED Talks: Sherry Turkle: Connected, but alone?

Face to face conversations become more an more difficult today because we are all too busy being connected through social technologies such as tweets, likes, emails, videos etc.

It’s time to talk again. Lets have a real conversation again.

Alone, together

Sherry Turkle studies how technology is shaping our modern relationships: with others, with ourselves, with it.

I am going to have a real conversation right know with my family!

Lets get started and go back to our lives where we enjoyed talking to each other.
