Socrative Garden 244EmailShare Word Clouds (wordle to most) can be a dynamic tool for visualizing text and for presenting a group’s thinking. They are AMAZING! While planning for the Future of Learning conference at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, I wanted to capture and share our participants’ views on “What are the key features of 21st Century Learning”. At first, word clouds didn’t cross my mind because in past experiences I had entered a historical speech, lecture notes or asynchronously generated google docs.
If You Love Your Brand, Set It Free Advertisement The practice of branding is undergoing a deep transformation — a change brought about by our kaleidoscopic postmodern culture, the development of communication technology and rapid globalization. In prior decades, brand managers aimed to establish their products and services primarily by way of consistency and repetition. A brand’s voice and message were to be the same, independent of marketing channel.
20 excellent contact pages The purpose of any website is to get people from your target audience interested in what you’re offering. Whether it be a product or service, 9 times out of 10, someone is going to want to communicate with you further. Because of this, in almost any industry, you’re going to want to create a contact page. For some, this is that last page on the site map where you just throw a bunch of information. How to Manipulate People For Fun (and Profit) When you’re building a website, the secret to building a large audience of readers and customers fast is all about “pulling triggers.” Emotional “hot” triggers. And while some people call this manipulation, the truth is that it’s just smart marketing. That said, today I want to share with you a simple, easy-to-replicate formula for pulling the most powerful “hot trigger” of them all.
Here's how 'irrational' customers help your brand Many of our clients include both B2B (business-to-business) and B2C (business-to-consumer) brands, sometimes described as corporate versus FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods). While much is made of the differences between these types of brands, they share a core objective: to create an emotional connection with the customer. We all know great consumer brands that do this well. Maybe there’s a soft drink that you associate with joy, or an apparel brand that jumps to mind at the mere mention of the word “sexy” (Coke and Victoria’s Secret, maybe?). These brands and others have worked hard to associate themselves with single-minded, emotional ideas, and there’s no denying the effectiveness of their approach.
Why Your Brand Should Piss Someone Off The better you are at creating a strong, clear brand position, the more likely you are to find a group of people who really don’t like you. As Bill Cosby once said, “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” Years ago, the And1 website used to feature an extreme example of this point. Addressing the meaning behind its name, the basketball apparel company announced: “If you don’t know what it means, we don’t want you wearing our shoes.” It’s like life: the only way to have everyone like you is to avoid taking a controversial stance on anything. If you are willing to be anything to anybody--to surrender your identity and your individuality--no one will have strong feelings about you either way.
