Slide 1

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. At Gravity4, wake up every morning upset about one core thing: Page 2

Slide 2

It’s 2015 and 99% of people still market like its 2005. Page 3

Slide 3

That’s it. Page 4

Slide 4

The reason we are so successful at Gravity4 isn’t our fancy office... Page 5

Slide 5

It isn’t our good-looking employees. (Ok, maybe a little) Page 6

Slide 6

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. It is based on the fact that we understand where the consumer is today... Page 7

Slide 7

And more importantly... Page 8

Slide 8

Where they are going to be in 5 years. Page 9

Slide 9

We’re passionate about the ways we get stumped as marketers. Let me explain... Page 10

Slide 10

Marketers spend billions each year on: Billboards, Direct mail, Print ads, Radio, TV... Why? Page 11

Slide 11

Many of these are collapsing in terms of getting the attention of the user. Page 12

Slide 12

Can you name the last time you: Page 13

Slide 13

A. Watched a commercial and engaged with it? Page 14

Slide 14

B. Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. Rode as a passenger in the car and looked at a billboard rather than your cell-phone? Page 15

Slide 15

C. Were excited to open an email that came with the intentions to get you signed up for something? Page 16

Slide 16

Then email us directly, and tell us about it. We bet you can’t! marketing@gravity4.com Page 17

Slide 17

And even if you can, Page 18

Slide 18

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. You don’t seriously believe that billboards are worth as much now, as they were pre-cellphones, right? Page 19

Slide 19

The same thing goes for email. Page 20

Slide 20

If you’re reading this, and you work in email marketing... Page 21

Slide 21

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. I want you to email us and tell us the last time you had a clickthrough rate (CTR) of over Page 22

Slide 22

The value proposition just isn’t the same as it used to be. Page 23

Slide 23

And it’s because of (sorry to say) people like us. Oops. Page 24

Slide 24

There was a time when you got super excited to buy $90 worth of steak for $45 on Groupon. Page 25

Slide 25

But these days you label all that as spam before it even hits your inbox. Page 26

Slide 26

Because you’ve been getting blasted at scale for the last five years. Gmail has your back. Page 27

Slide 27

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. So, what’s the fix? Page 28

Slide 28

What do you do when the ROI in 2015 for Billboards, Direct mail, Email, Print ads, Radio, and TV suck in comparison to 2005, 1995, or 1985?! Page 29

Slide 29

Here is what it comes down to: Page 30

Slide 30

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. Every single marketer out there is a storyteller. Page 31

Slide 31

It is our job to tell our value proposition (our story)... Page 32

Slide 32

To customers along the journey to purchase. Page 33

Slide 33

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. Period. Page 34

Slide 34

And to be a good storyteller, Page 35

Slide 35

First you need the attention of the customer to even get that chance. Page 36

Slide 36

Attention is shifting, my friends, and it is shifting fast. Page 37

Slide 37

Our society is experiencing ADD at scale... Page 38

Slide 38

Which means time and attention are commodities. Page 39

Slide 39

They are by far the most valuable resources in the game. Page 40

Slide 40

Most marketers treat paid media as a “distribution channel”, Page 41

Slide 41

as just another way to blast you with the same ad a million times. Page 42

Slide 42

They haven’t realized you’re annoyed, and lost your attention. Page 43

Slide 43

They lost the opportunity to bring you value. Page 44

Slide 44

The trick here... Page 45

Slide 45

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. The way to truly succeed and provide value... Page 46

Slide 46

Is to learn to story tell on a native-basis. Page 47

Slide 47

Respect the psychology of what makes a Facebook user, Page 48

Slide 48

Different from a web surfer. Page 49

Slide 49

And, even more different than someone who reads articles. Page 50

Slide 50

Can you understand why people find value in platforms? Page 51

Slide 51

Because I promise you – those who cannot tell their stories on today’s platforms are the ones who will go out of business. Page 52

Slide 52

Because they refuse to play like the year that it is Page 53

Slide 53

Here’s your full marketing OS. Reimagined. Don’t be that company. Page 54
