Youtility: Why Smart Marketing is About Help not Hype

If you’re wondering how to make your company seem more exciting, you’re asking the wrong question. You’re not competing for attention only against other similar products.

If you’re wondering how to make your company seem more exciting, you’re asking the wrong question. You’re not competing for attention only against other similar products. You’re competing against your customers’ friends and family and viral videos and cute puppies. To win attention, you must ask a different question… “How can I help?”

Word of mouth is responsible for as much as 50% of all purchases, yet almost nobody has an actual plan to generate it.

In this fast-paced, dynamic, modern presentation Jay Baer presents you with a simple, yet critical choice: do you want to be the same, or do you want to be different?

Same is lame. We ignore average, but we discuss different. When you offer a differentiated, talkable customer experience, it compels conversation. And when customers talk, they recruit new customers…for free.

With hilarious and poignant storytelling, Jay teaches the 4 things that must be true for a differentiator to be a Talk Trigger; the 5 types of word-of-mouth generating Talk Triggers; and the 6-step process for creating Talk Triggers in any organization.

This powerful presentation creates real change among attendees, helping them to vastly improve their marketing, and customer acquisition approach.

Jay is an in-demand emcee for complex, multi-day events, and has hosted events for IBM, Oracle and many other major brands for audiences as large as 15,000 attendees.

He prepares vigorously, reviewing presentations of all main stage speakers with event organizers beforehand, but remains largely unscripted, to be able to connect the thematic dots on-the-fly.

Jay also takes on many panel moderation assignments each year, and can easily pull double or triple duty at your event (keynote + emcee + moderator). He’s even done several awards ceremonies, and loves handing out trophies.
