How to do Micromarketing in 2010:
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Andre Yap, founder of Ripple100, the world’s first app built for micromarketing. He created my video to help me promote my business.
What is micromarketing?
Micromarketing was a term coined in 1988, by Ross Nelson Kay, as a marketing technique used to describe a form of “Target” marketing that was more precise and focused than typical “Niche” Marketing techniques. “Micromarketing” remains the most effective technique for small business users to sustain, build and grow their own brand. “Micromarketing” was first implemented in the real estate industry and remains imbedded in small personal service based businesses.

Andre coordinates a bi-weekly Twitter chat with a variety of themes, questions and ideas with people from all over that can add their comments at anytime.
Andre states, “it’s a 140-character powow with a singular goal: how to start micromarketing in 2010 and never stop. Every other week we dive into 60 minutes of micromarketing how-to’s. Not concepts, not thought leadership, not guru talk. Just how-to–stuff you can do now. Every week we’ll pick a focal point: micromarketing for restaurants, micromarketing for political campaigns, micromarketing for holidays like Valentine’s, micromarketing for women audiences, and so on.”
