The Seven Things Everyone Wants: What Freud and Buddha Understood (and We’re Forgetting) about Online Outreach

With all the shiny technology tools out there, it’s easy to be blinded to the fact that technology is about bonds, not wires. It’s human connections, not electronic ones, that matter. In other words, some very human principles make or break the success of absolutely everything you do online. In this session, two marketing experts – including the progeny of a psychiatrist and a devotee of Buddhist principles – share the seven things everyone wants and show how you can achieve marketing “enlightenment” by tapping into them in all you do online.


1. What drives online outreach success
2. The seven things everyone wants
3. How to plug into those principles to achieve online success
