“Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.” – Kid President
This quote is the essence of Good JuJu. Always coming from a place of positivity and creativity, we strive to make our content fun and inclusive, and always want our clients and their customers to feel heard and important, because they are.
“The best marketing doesn’t feel like marketing.” – Tom Fishburne, Founder & CEO, Marketoonist
We believe the greatest content is genuine and that creative should be authentic. Sure, people may like your brand and buy your product, but the most compelling connections happen when a company isn’t selling, but rather storytelling. Marketing is most memorable when the messaging is seamless and most enjoyable when it’s an actual experience and not advertising.
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Enthusiasm fuels everything we do at Good JuJu. In business and in our daily lives, we believe it’s not success that brings enthusiasm, but enthusiasm that brings success. It’s our super power. Enthusiasm makes us more creative, more positive, and more productive with our clients. If sales equals the transfer of enthusiasm, then good marketing is simply an extension of that spirit.
“What got you here won’t get you there.” – Marshall Goldsmith
Marketing is all about moving forward. What worked well 20 years ago may not work at all in today’s ever-changing, complex digital landscape. Tried and true may apply to some things, but smart businesses and savvy brands are constantly reacting and responding to changes in industry trends, adopting innovations in technology, and making data-driven marketing decisions. Bonus quote by Gary Vaynerchuck – “Market like the year you are in!”
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African proverb
Everyone loves a fun road trip, and good marketing is a journey. Sure, you can do it yourself and go-it-alone, which can sometimes seem faster. But whether it’s a dedicated in-house marketing team or a dynamic outside agency working on your behalf, when others are alongside you and behind you on your marketing journey to support you or share the load, you’re sure to get more done and go much further together. Plus, you’ll have way more fun!
Hopefully these popular, positive marketing quotes that inspire the Good JuJu crew can become motivational mantras for your own company. They help stimulate our team and remind us to bring our best selves to our clients and our brand every day.
