Every single social media practitioner, guru, wizard (or warlock) out there tells you that the key to success is listening. “We have two ears and one mouth for a reason” has been repeated so often it’s axiomatic.
But what does listening really mean today? To tell someone to “listen” is such a vague piece of counsel that it renders it devoid of any usefulness. How do you listen? Where? To whom? For what purpose?
These are the questions that businesspeople ask in the real world, and we’re going to answer them next week.
How to Listen to Everyone: From Competitors to Customers
I have assembled an all-star cast of business thinkers to help me add much-needed specificity to the “Listen” maxim, and the five of us are coming together on one, 60-minute Webinar on October 20 (sponsored by Cision). RSVP here.
