Along the way, he shows how Google’s tactics are being used by a wide range of successful corporations, from Apple to Zappos. Key principles include: Tap into the Wisdom of Crowds: Get the signals you need directly from your customers Keep It Simple, Stupid: Craft messages people can grasp in a nanosecond and pass along Don’t Interrupt: Join the conversation— but avoid disrupting it Act Like Content: Provide value, not sales pitches Test Everything: Take no detail of your program for granted; you can always improve Show Off Your Assets: Distribute your brand everywhere The beauty of it all is that these Googley lessons can be applied to every aspect of marketing, in organizations of any size. Whether you run a PR department in a multinational corporation or serve as the sole marketer in a small business, these tactics work. In its mission to “organize the world’s information,” Google has rewritten the book on marketing.
