[Marketing] Are Schools Killing Creativity?
In a post on his new book, “We Are All Weird,” Seth Godin wrote, During the age of mass (mass marketing, mass manufacturing, mass schooling, mass movements) the key was normal. Today’s guest post is written by Craig McBreen. Years ago, there was a boy who spent much of his school day staring out the window, daydreaming. To him, school was like the clink – a penitentiary so void of inspiration his imagination often left the room. His creative spirit needed an outlet, but it was so stifling in there. Kids dream big. Innate abilities lost over time? Passions are lost.

That said, you shouldn’t just accept advice because it’s common. think a lot of startups consider these two “rules” to be an absolute, which is why startups today are so quick to fundraise.

Marketing graduates are well-drilled in the buyer's decision making process. It Most marketing is geared to intersect a customer at one or more stages of this process. It goes something like this…. The customer identifies a need. The customer searches for information to satisfy that need. The customer evaluates a set of products which claim to satisfy that need. The customer purchases the product. The customer evaluates the product. Joining a community is nothing like buying a product. They don’t try to make a rational decision. Member registers.
