Two Marketing Strategy Consultants Walk into a Bar with Ryan Barry

This episode ain’t a swim in the kiddy pool.

On today’s episode of Ponderings from the Perch, the Little Bird Marketing Podcast, host and Momma Bird Priscilla McKinney, and guest and marketing strategy consultant Ryan Barry, discuss the future of market research and the importance of community when fostering b2b relationships. 

As the co-founder and President of Zappi, an agile market research platform built to empower creators globally with smart, quick, and actionable data to inspire, optimize, and validate their ideas, Barry shares lead generation tips and intimate insights on the importance of customer and people-centric methods, emphasizing the significance of making genuine, human connections with all types of people, regardless of their position within a company. He also discusses the role of GenAI for both marketing automation and in today’s market research and its ability to deliver actionable results.  

“How can we give people tangible advice [today],” Barry asks “[so we can] make their jobs better tomorrow?”

McKinney and Barry also highlight the missteps in market research, pointing out how businesses can either miss out on, or flat out ignore, the massive shift towards AI, as well as focusing solely on results and not relationships. Either extreme is a recipe for disaster in today’s business landscape that requires data-driven insights for smart marketing.
