Relationships first – #MindfulSocial with @BryanKramer
On the show this week is Bryan Kramer. We’ve been friends for years, and seen the changes in social media marketing from what used to be seen as a marketing tool to people actually want to communicate with each other, and how moving from the hustle of a marketing agency has changed his outlook on work and life.
Bryan speaks frankly about what it’s like to go from the hectic world of the hustle and chase of running a digital marketing agency of 17 years that was really just not healthy.
He took a scary yet freeing leap of faith to a new model of working that brings him to a happier, more joyful place working with individual leaders as a full-time coach.
Now, with a new perspective on the potential for leaders to enact change, he’s thinking about how we leaders can create trust with our listeners and readers in the age of automation and AI.
We also touched on the realities of starting a new business today. Building a website is no guarantee for business, you’ve got to reach out to real people to get things started.
Bryan Kramer is a renowned social business strategist, global keynote speaker, executive coach, and bestselling author. He’s one of the world’s foremost leaders in the art and science of sharing, and has been credited with instigating the #H2H human business movement in marketing and social.
With more than 350,000 social fans and followers, and an intimate understanding of the intricacies and interworking of both social technologies and social behaviors, Bryan is both a practitioner and authority on the subject.
Bryan’s first book There is No B2B or B2C: It’s Human to Human #H2H rose to the #1 top-selling spot in Business Books on Amazon in its first week. In January 2015, #H2H was named as the number one buzzword for 2015 by The Writer.
His latest book, Shareology: How Sharing is Powering the Human Economy, published by Morgan James Publishing, made the USA Today’s Top 150 Book List the week of its release, as well as #1 on Amazon in four categories including Business & Planning. The book explores the history, art and science of sharing, and illustrates why sharing is what gives us a unique competitive advantage as individuals and brands.
A founding leader in the Human Business Movement, Bryan speaks all over the world to marketing and social audiences on the topic.
