Samuel, I think you just you just said the magic words everything revolves around: "trust" and "relationships". Indeed that is exactly what marketing is about. It's true heart. When that is achieved everything else becomes easy and, in the process, we get authenticity and real value as a bonus.

It's true that customers are now more well-informed and vocal about their concerns and wants, and they're much more likely to be turned off by 'overly-salesy' ads. When we are genuinely trying to provide value and helping our customers, we're naturally more likely to provide content that is relevant and helpful to customers.
When we can successfully help a customer, they're then more likely to trust us and help us in return.
Marketing is, after all, all about building strong relationships with our customers.
Thanks for the post!
