What is Agile Marketing and links

Thanks to Marti Konstant for this great post with links that explain agile marketing

——-

I noticed this discussion today. I was part of a team of marketers that got together a year ago last June to create a set of values and principles that would help people better understand how to apply Agile within their companies. There were B2B and B2C companies represented. Large global companies and SMBs were also represented.

BTW, Agile software development was formalized with the Agile Manifesto in 2001 in Utahhttp://agilemanifesto.org/history.html.

The Agile Marketing Manifesto was created in 2012 in San Franciscohttp://agilemarketingmanifesto.org/values/

Recommend following a few thought leaders: Jascah Kaykas-Wolff, Scott Brinker, and Jim Ewel

Jascha Kaykas-Wolff @kaykas
Read anything by Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, current CMO at Mindjet in SFO, and has held CMO positions at WebTrends and Involver. He implemented some agile methodologies at Microsoft and Yahoo also. He is one of the pioneers of Agile marketing implementation

I started to apply some of the principles last year by starting with a few small projects – that is the best way to get started. For instance you can start with a particular goal you want to achieve around a launch – maybe it is editorial coverage, or it could be around the social media component of your launch. How can you structure your project and involve your agency and team in a way that you are working collaboratively, rather than in a silo? If you operate in Agile way, the agency never goes back to do its magic behind the scenes but provides feedback about progress along the way so that there are no surprises or no “Big Reveals” as there can be at times in the creative world. Agile methodology manages expectations of other stakeholders. It minimizes mistakes.

    I got this website from my buddy who shared with me concerning this web site and
    at the moment this time I am visiting this web page
    and reading very informative articles at this place.

  7. First off I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Cheers!

    Hi (Wayne?), thanks for the complements on the blog. If you are trying to get a clean start for writing a blog, pick a topic and decide what are the 3 key things that are most important. Underneath each item flush out key terms not full on detail that go into each point. Reviewing this structure will help focus your mind and energy only in what you see in the list, plus you writing will come off organised and flow with sense. Hope this helps!
