To end 2015 right, we've produced an extra-long episode of Marketing Smarts featuring 12 of the smartest marketers in the business, all answering the same questions: What's on your holiday wish list for marketers? What should marketers stop doing, and what do you want to see more of in the coming year?
Our guests share their insight, complete with how-to advice and examples, so you can jump into the new year with a whole new approach to marketing.
I've brought back my favorite guest host, Mack Collier, a social strategist, speaker, author of the book Think Like a Rock Star, and the host of the Fan-Damn-Tastic Marketing Show. (Check out his guest turns on Marketing Smarts : episode 94 about his book, Think Like a Rock Star, and episode 187 about marketing conferences.)
This final episode of 2015 features all-new Marketing Smarts content from authors, thought leaders, strategists, and big-brand marketers. Listen to the show and find out what these industry luminaries recommend for 2016.
