All Marketers Are Liars!!! That’s right! All Marketers Are Liars!!! I didn’t say it BUT I absolutely agree with it. Seth Godin said it. Do you know who Seth Godin is? He is known as America’s greatest marketer, an extremely intelligent guy who has written 10 best seller books and always speaks to large groups on marketing. His messages on marketing are absolutely awesome which can change the way you think and do things.

This video here is about Seth Godin on ‘All Marketers Are Liars’! There are 3 videos here. I’ll put the first one here and you can click to continue with the second and third ones. He talks about the system that is broken. Think about it for a moment. Is the system in your country broken? Look at the school system, legal system, human rights system, medical system, pharmaceutical system, banking system, police system, political system, army system, transport system, communication system, etc. They are all marketers. They promote and market their services and products endlessly. There have well-written rules and guidelines but are they really working?

Newspapers and TV panoramas are filled with news and stories of broken systems plaguing the nation. I still remember a professional friend told me, actually warned me, ‘Mary, know the system!‘ Ever wonder why there are many rich lawyers? Because of a broken system! A kind lawyer once told me, ‘Mary, I want to tell you the truth. We lawyers make a lot of money from people like you and others.’ That statement really hurts. But then it’s true - I can’t beat the system. Do we have laws and systems? Of course we have. But it is broken. What is the result? In too many an occasion, ‘Hard Work And Heart Work Don’t Work.’ Like what my professional friend said, ‘Know the system.’ Learn to be discerning and smart.

Enjoy the video. It is very thought-provoking and hilarious at the same time.

Thought of the day……

Take Leo Burnett, David Ogilvy, Bill Bernbach and Mark Twain. Combine their brains and shave their heads. What’s left? Seth Godin.

Jay Levinson

That just shows how intelligent Seth Godin is.

Have you suffered from a broken system? Is there a lesson to learn? Have you become wiser? Maybe you have benefitted from a broken system. How can you protect yourself from becoming a victim of a broken system? What advice would you give to people to help them from falling victim to a broken system?

In the mean time, keep learning to be wiser.
