Book Description

As marketers, we’ve been trained to speak “business to business” (B2B) or “business to consumer” (B2C). But instead of this creating a simple framework for dialogue between humans, it set forth an unnatural language for marketers, using words like “synergy” and “speeds and feeds” to tell the stories of products and services to their buyers and partners. The fact is that businesses do not have emotion. Products do not have emotion. Humans do.
Humans want to feel something.
And humans make mistakes.


In Human to Human #H2H, Bryan explores the many facets of why and how communication today needs to be adjusted to keep up with our ever-evolving and fast moving social and digital world. Through anecdotes from his own experiences as president of a Silicon Valley marketing firm, he both inspires new ways of finding commonality in our humanity, but also practical tools to think like a human marketer again.


Specifically, you’ll learn:
• The Four Rules of Social Context
• How Human Sensory Building will make you a better Marketer
• The Secrets to Making Ideas Crowd Worthy, with real world examples
• How to be “Delightfully Disruptive”
• Insights into building a Social Business
• What it means to have a “Focker Moment” and why they should be celebrated


Embedded are short intimate video conversations with some of today’s most forward-thinking humans; Jonathan Becher, CMO at SAP, Charlene Li, author and co-founder of The Altimeter Group, and Kare´Anderson, Emmy Award-winning journalist and founder of the Say It Better Center.


If you're looking to bring back the human side of communication, in all its imperfection, empathy, and simplicity, Human to Human #H2H is for you.

Bryan Kramer struck a chord when he first spoke on stage about the vital need for companies to recognize that it always comes down to a human to human connection for companies to survive and thrive and, in the insights in these video excerpts from his interviews with business thought leaders vividly demonstrates that this notion is spreading. Companies must clearly articulate and demonstrate what they stand for and prove it in how they engage with people inside and outside the firm.

Kramer says, "Near mass adoption of social media has put a magnifying glass on business. It used to be that brands sell more by pushing out a one-way conversation to their market. But now that social has enables countless global and public conversations, most brands are still struggling to express their distinctive voice and in figuring out how to engage in conversations with their key stakeholders instead of talking at them. In fact, many so-called social conversations are still thinly disguised sales pitches."

Companies are feeling three overlapping kinds of social fear, according to Kramer:

" • Fear of not using social media so they haphazardly jump in without a plan
or employees guidelines and rules.

• Fear of saying something wrong and getting criticizes so they don’t take part at all.

• Fear of candid feedback so they stick with one-way 'conversations' when they use social channels."

Also, he wrote, "I recently got to interview Jonathan Becher, CMO of SAP, on the topic of Social Business. He believes that Marketing has always been the glue in a company. But future marketing and future PR are two sides of the same coin. 'Social forces companies to break down internal barriers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Short and Sweet Primer for a Complex Subject February 18, 2014

Length: 3:41 Mins
In the spirit of the book "Human to Human" I decided to create a video to review the book. Stick around past my main review for some "authenticity".

5.0 out of 5 stars Insights on H2H, the next level of social marketing. February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
Bryan Kramer is a thought leader in social marketing. He does a great job in this book of showing why he is on the cutting edge in this quickly changing field, and why what he has dubbed H2H is the next step. There is a lot here for social marketers, for sure, but also for everyone in their personal and business lives. H2H is a concept for all of us, in almost any situation. Taking advantage of the e-book technology, his insights are reinforced with excellent but all-too-short video clips taken from recent interviews with other authors and leaders in the field. I really liked the discussion on "delightful disruption," which of course is the secret to progress and success in a lot of areas.

In a phrase from the book itself, Bryan Kramer's ideas definitely are "crowd-worthy," and are sure to spark future success in the use of social media.

Human to Human: #H2H is must-read material for all businesses that want to better communicate and connect with consumers today. There are a multitude of great nuggets in this easy-to-read book. My favorites were: The 4 Rules of Social Context, Speaking Human, and the difference between Balance and Harmony.

I consider myself to be well-versed in using social media for business and wrote five pages of notes as takeaway items from Bryan Kramer's book. It was a very educational read. Whether you are a local, passionate small business owner or the CMO of a Fortune 500 company, there are lessons to be learned in Human to Human. Well done Bryan!

From the small rural “mom ‘n pop” to global corporations, Bryan Kramer’s book, “Human To Human” has wide appeal.

It’s a “new” way of framing timeless truths, woven through this engaging multi-media “read” which I devoured in a ‘blink’.
H2H sets the stage for the way human connectedness and ongoing relationships build wildly successful, sustainable businesses, poised for massive growth in coming years.

Out of my commitment to foster this “Human To Human” language, I am gifting this e-book to friends and business associates, as well as my family (including our teens). I think it’s crucial that we model the culture we’d like to leave as a legacy for our children – in life and in business.
This book, H2H, provides a solid foundation for the paradigm we must all embrace – and implement in our daily lives.

Although it's written with marketing in mind, this book can really be applied to many types of relationships. What he's teaching here is communication. Instead of applying it to social communication or business communications or selling a business product, I found myself thinking how I can apply what he's saying to managing the people I supervise; to get them enthusiastic and engaged in change. He has a simple, easy conversational style of writing that's makes his book very readable.
