Some people try to make a difference by being friends with everyone – trying to please everyone all the time – and they quickly realize they’re being forgotten or ignored.

In a recently published blog titled, “3 Surprising Secrets We Can Learn from Edward Snowden,” Predictable Profits founder and CEO Charles Gaudet points out a few important lessons that marketers and small business owners can learn from the highly polarized public discussion about Edward Snowden, as well as lessons to be taken from the actions of Snowden himself.

Gaudet says, “By leaking information, Ed Snowden quickly became and enemy to tons of people, and a hero to just as many others. People are viciously divided, but they are certainly talking… Some people try to make a difference by being friends with everyone – trying to please everyone all the time – and they quickly realize they’re being forgotten or ignored.”

He goes on to explain how a division between supporters and opposition only makes people on either side feel more strongly about their stance, and in the world of marketing, this equates to passionate customer loyalty.

The blog focuses on three particular lessons, each drawn from Edward Snowden’s brazen leak of top-secret information, and the public’s reaction to his story in the news.

“If a brand or company was to make a controversial claim (remember, controversial doesn’t mean ‘bad,’ it just means something that stirs the pot… like an outrageous guarantee or a totally redesigned version of a popular product), people will start talking to each other about it,” Gaudet continues, “And that translates directly to word-of-mouth-marketing!”

Charles Guadet urges marketers, business owners, and entrepreneurs to consider how bold moves like Edward Snowden’s can get people talking, even if it isn’t always positive. He also reminds readers to seek lessons in unlikely places, and to gain insight from every situation that takes the public by storm.
