2009 Session:

Session Description – Trust Marketing - A guide to truly influencing peoples decisions

"Trust Marketing" is the result of 20 years of doing considered-purchase marketing. "Trust Marketing" often goes counter to how most marketing professionals approach their basic problem - "just say what it takes to sell the product".

The session will describe the complexity and simplicity of selling with trust, marketing with trust and branding with trust. The focus is on clients whose products will have a major effect on someone's careers, life or business.

I have practiced trust marketing strategies for companies such as Canon, Fujitsu, HylsaMex, Luminex and Medtronics. But the same principles apply to consumer and service-based marketing as well -- not just life or death situations.

But hey, if your company depends on sales and your products or services don't just leap of the shelves, it might be life or death.
