Selling in an Age of Social Media: An Interview with Grant Leboff

10/17/2016 11:08 am ET

Phil Simon Speaker, Author, Advisor, faculty member at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business.

Social media has been with us for a while now. While I’m not expert, it’s fair to say that it, in many cases, it has changed traditional methods of moving stuff. But how does a business compete in this age?...

Amazon co.uk - 5* - Stickier Marketing review

An A1 must read to really understand modern marketing: It occurs to me that many of the people who read this book are likely to consider themselves quite well-informed about recent developments in marketing strategy. Their response to every step in Grant Leboff’s argument is like to be: “Yes, of course. That’s obvious! So, why didn’t I think of it that way?” This, at any rate, was my own reaction when I read the first edition of this book, in July last year. Of course, as I quickly realised, sometimes it takes a genius to draw our attention to the “obvious”... read full review

Web, Social Media Continue to Grow More Important For Television

By Tonya Garcia on May 2, 2012 4:59 PM

…Entertainment and digital companies are taking their cues from the audience. New Nielsen research shows that more than two-thirds of viewers are watching TV and using their tablet devices at the same time. Grant LeBoff, writing for The Huffington Post, looks closely at the topic, writing, “For marketing to be effective, all businesses must ask themselves, are they encouraging their customers to be involved, ‘like’ and ‘mention’ them in a positive light to garner as much social proof as possible?”

Why you should read Sticky Marketing

As the subtitle of this book states, “everything in marketing has changed.” Marketers should no longer concern themselves with the previously undisputed principles of unique selling propositions (USPs), client benefits, positioning, local competition and even superior service. Social networks have redistributed power into the hands of the consumer. Now, to make your brand attractive, you must take the focus off the transaction and provide value, create an experience and join in the online conversation. Grant Leboff thoughtfully outlines the new, “sticky” method of marketing, explaining why “customer engagement” reigns supreme. He lays out the ABCs of “sticky marketing,” including helpful summaries at the conclusions of each chapter. getAbstract recommends that all marketers give this a thorough read and refer to it often.

How valuable is Facebook to businesses?

by Christopher Jenkins

....The internet is clearly a ‘Rule Changer’ as Grant Leboff describes it in his excellent book called “Sticky Marketing”. The change in communications from one-to-many into many-to-many is fact, not a fanciful theory. It is clear that we no longer have the right to respond that the old style of communication, facilitated by the PR and creative agencies allowed us to have. No longer can we rely on creating an image that reflects our product or service when people talk about us between themselves without us being able to control those conversations. Reputation is all and yours will stand or fall on what other people say, or what they don’t say, to each other about you.

Grant Leboff Scores Straight 10'S At April Peer Group

04 Apr 2014 | Posted by Default Admin User

Members and guests often tell us that the opportunity to work on their business (instead of in it) is one of the greatest benefits of attending Transmentum Peer Group meetings. The April event was particularly useful. Grant Leboff spent a morning expanding on how our marketing has to change radically if it is to be effective in the digital age. Members and guests (always a tough audience) scored Grant with straight 10's on both delivery style and on content.
