Music has a heavy influence on culture, which fuels marketing, so it's no surprise that music also plays a role in marketing. As you experience more in life, the lessons learned translate more than you know and end up applying If you haven't heard the album you can take a listen here.
Check out these 4 Marketing Lessons Learned from Big Sean's Dark Sky Paradise.
1. Speak From The Heart
Life is a feeling process. People can tell when you aren't being genuine with them. They can feel your bullshit and they'll treat it as such. Although what you say does hold some weight, it's all about how you make them feel.
2. You Win Some, You Lose Some
You won't knock it out of the park every day. Hell, some days you may even strike out. But just remember that it's all apart of the game. Just stick to your strategy and stay the course.
3. Be Relentless
Wake up everyday like you're on a mission. There's a well known Will Smith quote about work ethic where he states that you'll never outwork him. You may be more talented and better skilled, but you'll never outwork him. That's the attitude you need to be successful. You've got to get up every morning on a mission to be and do better than you did the day before. Want it more than you want to breath.
4. Stay True To Yourself
In now his 3rd studio album, Sean has always stayed true to his style and demeanor. This goes just the same for business. To piggyback from my first point, people can see your bullshit and trying to present yourself as something you aren't is just that. Be who you are and true to yourself, your true audience will always appreciate it.
