Why Content Marketing is like Dating

The new rules. 

Back in the 90’s there was a book called the
‘The New Rules’ which was all about dating. I thought it was a bit corny at the time but it was very popular; it became a cult and was even updated recently. Content marketing is a lot like dating – you’re using your content to engage others, so it pays to know the rules and, unlike the book, they’re not all written down.   Read more

Why Content Marketing Is Not Spray Tanning

Don't spray and pray. 

When I first started in marketing, some marketers used the 'spray & pray' technique, which meant chucking anything out there, hoping some might hit the right target and stick. It wasn’t a method I advocated then and don’t now: it’s a bit like trying to get a spray tan in a gale. The result won’t be effective – or pretty.

Google has been carefully tweaking its search algorithms with updates such as Panda and Penguin to penalise sites that engage in keyword stuffing and fake link building.

How to Craft a Compelling Elevator Pitch

Tuesday, December 04, 2012 - Kim Brebach

Why your elevator pitch needs to be short tight and simple

A recipe with 8 essential ingredients. 

The concept of the 
Elevator Pitch comes from Hollywood, where aspiring scriptwriters would jump into the elevator with a producer and pitch their new script idea in the time it took for the elevator to reach the penthouse suite. If you think that’s a tough task, MGM boss Louis B. Mayer used to ask scriptwriters to write their synopsis on the back of his business cards. By comparison, the 30-45 seconds you have in an elevator seem luxurious.  Read more

Branding – How to Avoid Deadly Mistakes

Tuesday, November 06, 2012 - Kim Brebach

Find out how millions can result in a branding failure

The bigger they are, the bigger their mistakes. 

We all see brand names or logos that make us shake our heads and ask: what were they thinking? Or smoking? Some make us cringe: Nissan
Tiida and BenQ Joybook. Some make us laugh: Wii. Some make us frown and ask: they spent how many million on a that new logo and brand? A case in question was the  London 2012 Olympic logo.

The last marketing company we used cost us a lot of money and gave us nothing of any value. We gave them quite a good chance too.

I’m very comfortable with this process.
