Seth Godin wrote, “If we built factories as badly as we build marketing campaigns, this country would be in shambles” and I think this is highly applicable today.
Too many companies get it wrong: using outdated ideas and unevaluated strategies, hoping something will stick, just by throwing more crap at the wall. Doesn’t work.
Looking for an Answer
Earlier today, I searched the following term on Slideshare: Branding.
This yielded in 670,328 results. OMG.
Our Obsession with Branding:
Which One Will Win?
Of those, I am guilty for a few of those results. But two of these branding presentations are now neck and neck vying for that coveted 100,000 views milestone. I already have one that is well over 130,000 views, and these are the next two to cross that line.
Combined, these two have gotten 198,011 views. Yet one was uploaded on February 11th while the other was uploaded almost a month later on March 13th.
Yet they are neck and neck. One is 1,097 short of the 100,000 milestone. The other is 892 shy of 100,000 views.
Why Is It So Hard to Create a Brand Anybody Gives a Shit About?
This one has gotten 98,903 and counting. In short, I isolated 5 areas that cause businesses problems when developing a brand. I not only designed and created this piece, but I also included 5 assignments to actually DO in this presentation. Really. They are worth doing.
