In life, we are a bunch of complex creatures, and whether we admit it to ourselves or not, we have many ups and downs on our road to our next destination and beyond.
I've had a pretty amazing life. I know that I have been privileged in so many ways; phenomenal family, great loyal long term friends, new friends and great loves. In many ways, I was prized with a place on the podium.
Your brand is the way your customers perceive you, so having a brand that represents your business personality, values and culture is not just an optional extra in business but a core necessity if you seek longevity.
Effective branding is more than just a good logo. It’s ensuring that every touch point of communication with your customers encapsulates your core brand and key message. Great branding offers a distinct competitive advantage, as your competition can’t easily imitate or replicate your brand, or your customer’s perception of the brand.
So if you need to create a brand for a new business idea or redefine your existing business’ brand, here is my 5 step formula for getting it right:
Unlockd, a Melbourne-based mobile tech startup just raised an additional $15million, backed by big names including Lachlan Murdoch. This mobile based platform combines the telco and digital advertising worlds to offer mobile users data and discounts in exchange for their attention.
Big names in advertising agencies are proclaiming that digital marketers don't know what they're doing. Digital agencies and platforms are claiming that advertising and PR are dead.
These headlines keep popping up and frankly, they're unhelpful for businesses trying to get their marketing right and they aren't helping marketing professionals to be the best they can be. The reality is that digital and traditional need to work together to solve today's marketing problems.
Siicon Valley is home to the coolest companies on the planet, the highest salaries in the world and the most expensive real estate; it's New York that is comparative on a few levels here, but is currently experience a tech boom that may eventually take the reigns of it's Bay partners.
It's been humbling and a great reminder of what is important in life.
As our online network of friends continues to expand, social media companies and their newsfeeds transform and evolve as well.
On March 15th 2016, Instagram, the fastest growing social media network, announced their latest update: an algorithm-based, personalised newsfeed. This means that photos and videos will no longer appear in chronological order, rather, appear based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post.
It's something Marketing Eye does everyday, but is so important for businesses to think about. Each platform has a specific personality. All posts should be based on your audience, but businesses need to think about the way in which they deliver their information. Does your audience want to read an extensive study? Or would they prefer a humorous anecdote? We've translated each platform and given them an equivalent voice
'dress code' to make things simple.
