Minter Dial, Speaker, Author, and Founder of the Myndset Company, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss disruption, social media, and finding success in the sharing economy.
Shakin’ It Up
When you hear the word “disruption”, what do you envision?
An interrupted conversation?
A new technology?
Many social pros consider disruption to be a new platform that requires a change in budget and perhaps an intern to man the helm until you can work it into the rotation.
Minter posits that disruption goes much deeper than that. True disruption shakes the system to its very core. It’s not just incorporating a new line item in the budget, it’s re-envisioning how you communicate with customers and why this change is needed.
A change in the force of marketing requires social pros to step back and rebuild their strategy from the ground up. While some find this disheartening, Minter knows that the reality is it’s an opportunity to infuse fresh energy and creativity into your career and brand.
Disruption is the maker and breaker of brands. Minter’s approach to embracing and encouraging healthy disruption keeps him flexible, creative, and innovative.
