Unlearning marketing

Harvard Business Review: Why the Problem with Learning Is Unlearning, 2016-Nov-3 by Mark Bonchek

We need to unlearn the push model of marketing and explore alternative models.

Instead of customers being consumers, we could have relationships with them in a variety of roles and social facets. Beyond delivering a value proposition, we could be fulfilling a shared purpose.
