Callaway Golf interview with David Neville

Swinging for Marketing Success with Callaway’s David Neville

In Episode 67, Tyler and Jon discuss Google’s expansion of shopping ads into YouTube. This is a great way for marketers to take advantage of product listing ads in an expanded format, with an opportunity to test YouTube placements for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Then, Tyler welcomes Dave Neville, Callaway's Senior Director of Brand Management, into the studio.

Dave gives us a look inside Callaway Golf's marketing operations. He goes on to discuss Callway’s procedures for leveraging its sponsored athletes, cultivating a culture of engagement among the younger generations, and growing the game of golf. Dave also touches on the success of The Links at Petco Park and leveraging podcasts to create a community around your brand. Finally, Dave shares his biggest takeaway for marketing leaders.

Tyler and Jon then go on to everyone’s new favorite segment: Words of Twisdom! Every week they will highlight one lucky twitter user and their wise tweet. This week’s wise user is actually a former guest, @PatrickLencioni!

Join Tyler, Jon, and Dave for more insight on how to improve your marketing strategy and grow your brand!
