Scott Stratten – The Social Media Rockstar Who Believes Employees Are Your Biggest Marketing Asset

Former music marketer Scott Stratten is firmly in the social camp that advocates genuine, interesting, carefully planned content over masses of spam fired randomly in the hope some of it will stick. Those in media jobs should take note. Scott’s currently the President of UnMarketing  – an expert in viral, social and authentic marketing, that he charmingly refers to as ‘UnMarketing’; which, simply put, is all about positioning your brand and business as the expert customers will turn to when they need the services you offer. He’s very definitely not a fan of the unplanned ‘suck it and see’ school of  marketing and feels that engaging and interacting with your audiences, and being genuine with them, is the key to making sure they opt for you over your competitors. His most recent book, The Book of Business Awesome / The Book of Business UnAwesome is actually two tomes in one and it aims to show businesses how to become awesome, by looking at train-wreck examples of the thoroughly unawesome. What’s His Big Idea? After graduating from Sheridan College, where he returned and held a professorship and taught HR and employment law, Stratten worked for several big Canadian names, including Goodwill…
