Skills, Ethos + Work Ethic

Michael Courtenay

[Skills, Ethos + Work Ethic] In No Particular Order:

My time is filled with making other folks land softly, easing their days, so they’re able to enjoy their evenings: I Like To Worry! I’m overtly fond of driven people, like the energy. My client list is diverse, an English Brain Scientist, a Hotelier on the up, a PR firm and a half dozen special individuals. As well, I run online campaigns for several brands, throw my fifty cents in for Unruly Media, take the odd casual editorial.

…what I like most about my world? The anonymity, I like that others get the kudos.

[confession] I’ve been blogging since before Blogger belonged to Google, if your the – I need a – date type: 1999!

If this all sounds too good to be true, your right. I am flawed! I hate resumes, this is it! Please don’t ask to see one; unless of course you’d like to see a few more flaws?

I’m pretty positive, about the resume thing.

Seriously! …it’s personal, if it isn’t, your missing the point!

CLEARLY! …it’s a hardship giving away who my clients are, who they’ve been is much simpler:

…so, ya wanna get deep?

Michael CourtenayMy approach to enterprise isn’t for everyone, it’s not mainstream. I believe the we – consumers – are all the same, we’re hardwired the same, feel the same, want the same. As a marketeer, I have little control over what consumers want, what they covert.

Clearly the essentials are defined, however I’ve little interest in selling white-bread or milk, I want the next big thing.

Our sameness is key to social media, while we can’t control consumer action, we can – and must – completely control the TEAM that interacts with your potential and loyal consumer.

/ti:m/ Handpicking a team, choosing a solid, genuine representation of who your marketing to, giving that team the skills and guidance, then allowing them to be themselves, their best selves is key.

Not only does this approach filter any feigned or misled output, it creates genuine connections between your product and it’s consumer.

Ask yourself: is my Facebook presence an authentic interaction or a superfluous advertisement?

…we can’t control the diversity of sameness, we can control who interacts with it though: to be continued
