I will talk about marketing "around a group of people" rather than "towards a group of people." And what I mean by that is first figuring out who this target audience is and what they want. Too many marketing campaigns start and end with the product: We are this. We do this. You should buy us. But it doesn't relate at all to the person who might be buying it and give them any reason to care. Today's world is no longer just about the function or convenience of a product, but how does it fit into a person's daily life. If you can give them a reason to want to buy, to want to talk about it on social media, to feel like their life is enhanced by buying the product or joining in, then they will. And that's personalised marketing. I'll explain this using real work examples and real world takeaways that can be implemented into anyone's strategies. Plus, a slew of pop-culture references to keep things interesting.
