Seth Godin Thinks You’re Boring

Seth Godin Thinks You’re Boring

By John Jantsch

seth godin on duct tape marketingOkay, to be fair to Seth, let’s put the title of this post in context. I interviewed Seth on a recent live session for my coaching excellence series and we talked about the natural advantages of small business and how to take advantage in a down market.

At some point he said – “If people aren’t talking about you, there’s a reason. You’re boring – your products are boring, your services are boring, your message is boring, your marketing is boring . . .”

The twittersphere gets pretty active during these sessions and here are a few hightlights from folks tweeting during the call.
