- Marketing is a way of making a change in the culture
- It’s easier to notice bad marketing models because good marketing doesn’t feel like marketing
- Marketing should help people as much as possible for free
- Pushy hard-sell tactics can turn people off
- If you believe you have valuable information that people should know about, you should share it
- People won’t magically find you. You have to let them know you’re there
- Know your audience, connect with them, and have empathy with them
- Find a way to deliver value with your marketing
