Pick up the key ideas in the book with this quick summary. Gone are the three-martini lunches and huge, sprawling campaigns that took months to plan. Any savvy business executive today knows that advertising broadly, across a number of media channels, is neither effective nor fruitful. Gone too are the days of spending huge amounts of cash on newspaper, radio, magazines or television placements.
Today, thanks to the internet, marketing and public relations offer many more opportunities than before. This book summary will walk you through how to produce effective marketing in our digital age. The internet is a powerful tool for many things, from downloading movies to video chatting with loved ones. But it has also transformed the face of business, and not just through online shopping! Importantly, the internet has revolutionized marketing.
Well-designed websites, powerful images, and engaging audio or video clips are the new tools marketers can use to encourage dialogue, gain publicity and raise awareness for a brand. One example is a rainforest eco-resort in Western Belize, the Lodge at Chaa Creek, which has a talented content team.
This team provides potential travelers with relevant, well-crafted stories on their blog. Are you ready to create a brilliant online presence for your brand? These days, customers can scrutinize your brand on social media and publish their own thoughts to an audience of hundreds, if not thousands, of people. If you want your brand to thrive in this hyperconnected world, there are a few things to keep in mind.
The first is the importance of open communication, a particularly valuable guideline when your brand is facing a potential public relations crisis. The post quickly went viral, generating a lot of criticism of Sony. Despite the international outcry, Sony stayed quiet for a lengthy period. The crisis spiraled out of control, and Sony eventually faced a host of state lawsuits questioning the legality of its software.
Had Hesse responded to the crisis as soon as he knew about it, and had he delivered an official apology and presented a plan to correct the issue, Sony might have maintained its positive reputation. Smart companies, on the other hand, know how to harness the power of social media for themselves. The commission began by inviting travelers at airports in Frankfurt, Germany, and Lyon, France, to change their vacation plans on the spot and travel to Canada for free.
Surprisingly, many travelers took a leap of faith and accepted the offer. These people also agreed to become social media advocates for the tourism commission and share their adventures in Canada on social media. This program generated a lot of buzz around the Canadian Tourism Commission, with the result that Canada saw a Granted, the truth might not always be pleasant, but once you start seeing such chatter as brand feedback, it can be incredibly valuable.
This is why the importance of bloggers should never be underestimated. A blog is a personal website, in which someone who either specializes or is interested in a certain topic shares stories and opinions.
Blogs can offer fascinating reading material and often build followings with thousands of dedicated readers. A positive mention on a popular blog is like someone recommending your brand to a packed auditorium full of listeners who are hanging on every word.
Get the picture? Blogs are also a great platform for talking with customers who matter to you. Flynn created blogs for 15 states, each blog containing carefully curated and localized content. Readers were encouraged to submit stories and photos, and this engaged and mobilized whole communities.
The blogs received lots of valuable feedback and generated a range of powerful dialogues, which Flynn cites as the inspiration for improvements in the overall campaign.
Creating videos and sharing them across multiple online platforms has never been easier than today. In fact, video is primed to become the leading form of digital marketing. But what should your videos be about?
Say you want to advertise a sunny, sandy beach. Unimaginative marketers might shoot images of the sea, the sand and a few smiling tourists. But if you want your destination to stand out, you need to tell the unique story behind the destination.
Sometimes you can even let your audience tell the story for you! More than 30, applicants applied, and their application videos generated millions of views. In recent years, podcasts have emerged as a particularly strong marketing tool. Unlike radio stations with static programming, podcasts allow listeners to subscribe to a particular channel, which then delivers clips on topics they may be interested in.
VelocityPage cofounder Jon Nastor saw podcasts as an opportunity to generate attention for his business. Nastor saw an almost 50 percent increase in sales as a result of his popular podcast. But there are patterns to which a savvy marketer should pay attention. First, you need an idea that people will want to share. You need to think bigger. Ideas and stories that fascinate, entertain, provoke thought and inspire people are what will get your content to spread like wildfire. Similarly, people will lose interest if you blatantly try to offer them a deal.
Giving away free memberships for a limited time is just not that appealing! Be creative and think of other ways to mobilize viewers to share your story.
What motivates your target audience? And why? These are questions that should guide your strategy. If one of your customers is doing something fascinating online, support them! This is what candy company Mentos did after witnessing two experimenters, Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz, mix a Mentos chewy mint lozenge with a glass of Diet Coke, creating an explosive chemical reaction that the two filmed and posted on YouTube. The duo immediately wanted to take their experiment to the next level, mixing liters of Diet Coke with over Mentos.
This video went viral, and with it, Mentos saw a brilliant marketing opportunity. The company hosted the video on the official Mentos website and sponsored the two experimenters as they appeared on talk shows to explain their wacky stunt.
For better or worse, the internet has changed our lives forever. With instant communication and endless information at our fingertips, daily life moves at a much faster pace than before. The same goes for doing business, and the most successful brands know how to act quickly to get the marketing results they want. These days, brands that can move in real time will get more publicity.
Red Bull is just one of many companies that have used live streaming tools to their advantage, giving viewers access to incredible events and at the same time, generating great publicity for their brands. Offering people inside or exclusive access to certain events is a surefire way to keep them engaged and keen for more content. Continuous social media updates, for example, have proven more effective than traditional, occasional PR outreach.
His followers, as a result, felt they were part of something special, creating a sense of community. If you want to target the right customers, you first have to know who they are. For this purpose, you need to establish buyer personas. Buyer personas are the foundations for any effective marketing campaign. These personas allow you to create a model of your ideal customer, and then tailor your branding accordingly.
Preschool-aged children typically ride them. Here, you already have two buyer personas, and each holds a different idea about your product. Parents tend to choose cheaper, more basic models, as they know their child will grow quickly and graduate soon to a two-wheeled bike. By creating two marketing strategies to make the most of these different perspectives, you can ensure you make both kinds of customer happy. What do they like, what do they hate? What problems are they struggling with, and who shapes their worldview?
Who or what is most important to them? This is what consumer electronics brand Beko does. Because it operates in a variety of markets with differing cultures, Beko always collects market intelligence by interviewing potential customers. Through such interviews, Beko discovered that in China, drying clothes in the sun is an indispensable part of domestic culture.
So the company created a dryer that only half-dried clothes, allowing customers to finish the drying process outside on the washing line. By listening to potential customers, the company ensured its brand and products were a hit in China. Sharing stories on social media as well as audio and video content is one part of the plan.
A brand also needs to get its community engaged with authentic storytelling to create a revolutionary marketing campaign in the twenty-first century. Looking to get your business online? Blogs are a great place to start. For inspiration, look at the blog of Alacra, which creates workflow solutions for financial institutions. Its blog adds a face and a story to the company in a way that traditional press releases never could. Get involved and start the conversation!
So what can you do? Baumgartner broke world records during his jump, falling faster than the speed of sound! Sharing is caring, and when promoting a brand, it clearly pays off! Actionable advice: Get your brand a blog!

Сьюзан напряглась как тигрица, защищающая своего детеныша. - Сьюзан, ты же говорила с. Разве Дэвид тебе не объяснил. Она была слишком возбуждена, чтобы ответить.
В отчет вкралась какая-то ошибка? - Мидж промолчала. Джабба почувствовал, что она медлит с ответом, и снова нахмурился. - Ты так не считаешь. - Отчет безукоризненный. - Выходит, по-твоему, Стратмор лжет.
