Why Marketing Like We're Human aka 'The Client Resonator'?

I asked Jenn where she was before starting on the Marketing Like We’re Human journey:

Before starting the Marketing Like We’re Human (MLWH) journey, I was at the very beginning stages of my business, transitioning out of a 12-year academic career. I initially viewed entrepreneurship as closely tied to capitalism and exploitation, similar to the corporate world. I sought an alternative approach that aligned with my values and emphasized authenticity. I struggled with marketing, wanting to avoid slimy tactics and instead focus on people-first, value-driven communication. Finding the MLWH program early in my business journey helped me start with a focus on values and authentic marketing, which resonated with me deeply.

Here’s what Jenn was looking for:

I was looking for a way to do business that aligned with my values and felt authentic. I wanted to avoid traditional marketing tactics that felt slimy and instead focus on a people-first approach that emphasized genuine communication. I sought examples of people doing business differently and aimed to connect with like-minded individuals who shared my values.

"One of the really cool things about the MLWH Program is that it's based on Sarah's worldview and that draws diverse individuals with various businesses seeking different types of marketing, but that share that same worldview."

The results

I asked Jenn who she has become and why that makes her happy:

“I no longer feel out of alignment with my marketing efforts, and I can attract clients in a way that feels genuine and fulfilling.

Tangible results include:

"You get out of it what you put into it. If you put the time and effort into this program, it really can yield some amazing results."

Final thoughts

It has been wonderful to watch Jenn’s journey through the 7Ps of Humane Marketing. 

Here are Jenn’s last thoughts:

“I really got a lot out of having the cohort and having the accountability partners because we had meetings in between the official group calls, and could talk 1 on 1 about how how we’re implementing this and give each other feedback.
 I found that to be a really, really incredibly valuable experience. I think going through it with other people just enriches the learning experience so much. ”

Thank you Jenn for sharing !
