I grew up in the era of Saturday morning cartoons, sugary cereals with a prize inside, and “gotta collect them all” action figure sets. So naturally, when I embarked on a marketing career, I fell in love with advertising, splashy events, and calls-to-actions.

But deep down inside, I think marketing can be so much better, more authentic, and more natural. That’s why I’m excited about people-based marketing.

Could there be a day when the people we work with, the people we work for, and the people who work for us creatively and truthfully tell the story of our products, services, and organizations so we don’t need to advertise, bribe or interrupt? Essentially, that is what people-based marketing is all about.

LinkedIn says the data proves that people-based marketing works. Companies like GoPro are killing it with their community doing most of the marketing for them.
