    Does Content Matter? Using beBEE As A Springboard To Engage With Your Readers.Don’t you just love Fridays? I guess I am a little fortunate in that Fridays for me could be a Monday, a Wednesday or for that matter a Sunday. It’s a little bit cool to be a freelance travel writer! My current Friday morning ritual...

    I think the best testimony is the articles themselves, so I checked out an August 2016 piece about Jakarta also published by Oryx and from the first paragraph onwards a.k.a.

    "The early morning sun spears like an arrow through the buildings in old Batavia illuminating an old man hosing down the cobblestones while, across the square a restaurateur arranges chairs and tables on the pavement then pulls down a colourful awning ............"
    from http://www.paulvwalters.com/uncategorized/jakarta-a-city-where-simply-nothing-is-impossible

    Where in the eye of the beholder one see's "nice and fluffy" I see "rich and inviting". The key here is certainly not an academic treatise about travel, but a lived experience shared with the reader in a way which is virtual reality without the technology - and that is the best kind of VR - the one that stirs the imagination of our own minds. Now if people settle for less or even focus their attention at the level of branding, then it is an old verse of the self-limiting perceptions of personal branding, and again this simply exemplifies the consequences of operating at the level of sell, tell or yell, rather than stir one's own imagination and avidly seek to be shaken and stirred. So what I read in the Jakarta article is beyond brand, because the reader of that article is physically on route to a real travel experience.

    Reading of course is a great habit but imagination is what gives life to that habit and then habit is WHO WE ARE, not as a reader but as human being. So it is the next step is ours. Mine was discovering FX Harsono http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/01/29/fx-harsono-exposing-beauty-ugly-truth.html and we either find those linkages with virtual travel or physical travel, but what I learn here is 100% of the magic that should be travel.

    @Paul Walters - thanks for the tag - well done for getting those commissions! It's very true that you must write about what you know, as far as 'nice and fluffy' is concerned - I think that should be replaced by 'easy to read, fun and informative!'.

    #29 Content doth matter,
    But readers matter a lot more;
    Why worry about what other writers write,
    When you could devote that energy to write some more? ;)

    We have our connections...and their connections to care about or read,
    And like, comment upon or share every useful feed;
    Let us judge not harshly for we too would be judged,
    Opinion is verily a sword, double-edged.

    Nice piece, @Paul Walters, bright and unpretentious -- as always. I enjoy your writing for its lack of hidden agenda. And for the
    Openness it displays. As I sit here waiting to see if my home of more than two decades survives the week, it, I've been reading a number of your posts and feeling better for them. Thanks and cheers.

    Hey @Paul Walters I'm not going to envy you. BTW I do love the view. I know you've earned it all and alot of smart work has seated you where you are. Do keep throwing in tips now and then. I enjoy reading what you write, you have a way getting people to listen to you and stayed glued to what you write. There's always a breath of fresh air one could call it.
    Javier makes some great points which you've reiterated. Thanks for a lovely Friday cup of honey

    I enjoyed reading your blogging buzz, Paul, as always. I commend you for reiterating the important points made by @Javier 🐝 beBee, with which I fully concur. Here's a simple rule to help users those who might be stuck about what's appropriate to post, per Javier's excellent advice:
    This platform is fortunate to have such accomplished writers/authors like you, Paul, engaging and providing content on a regular basis. Ditto that for the other admirable bees named above in your post -- and so many more who do the same (a very long list). In short, beBee is what users make it. Thus, let's continue to make it professional and business-like, which is a win-win for beBee's brand image as well as our own personal branding.
    Lastly, I've pinned Javier's post to the top of my Twitter home page for easy retweeting at https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg Please spread the buzz!
    PS Paul -- per the comments by @Jim 🐝 Cody and @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal below, I am likewise envious of the dream-like lifestyle you have diligently and impressively worked so hard to create for yourself. Thus, perhaps you can consider producing some honey advising us on how to follow in your big footsteps. Vamos!!!

    Thanks @Don 🐝 Kerr for commenting on @Paul Walters buzz - this brought it into my feed.

    And YES - content is everything.

    Great suggestions from @Javier 🐝 beBee

    But maybe this needs clarification:

    ** Relevant ** content is everything.

    Thanks for the reminder of why most of us are here in the first place.

    #2 That is what I also ask Debasish, for what reason do drunk drivers have for killing innocents on our roads, but we pick our prayers based on what the news delivers to us, even though drunk drivers in America kill more Americans than terrorists have, and the same is probably even more true in India. I want to challenge that thinking, at least as I watch this media unfold and I can predict the reaction to death via mass media, rather than the death that never reaches us, unless a phone call is received and the voice on the other end says that our loved one was killed by a drunk driver. We should not give terrorists any more status than the careless drunk driver - indeed we should give them less, because unlike the drunk driver, these murderers called terrorists want us to react in fear, anxiety and uncertainty and we should not let them have that satisfaction - call them murderers because that is what they are and then unite as good people will do.

    #33 Thanks @Sara Jacobovici I wondered because in Israel I saw a lot of Eucalypt trees - Australian natives. I thought this might be wattle. I googled it to get a closer pic of the flowers. They are definitely not wattle but quite distinctive - a bit like an iris in shape. Thanks I have never seen this tree before.

    Long ago Apollo called to Aristæus,
    youngest of the shepherds,
    Saying, "I will make you keeper of my bees."
    Golden were the hives, and golden was the honey;
    golden, too, the music,
    Where the honey-makers hummed among the trees.

    07/08/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #3 Yes, especially a poem that makes you think and is so well written. Of course Susan Sontag wrote against the perils of interpretation. Not where it advanced context but where it stifled meaning relevant to our age and time. See the PDF and part 4 of Sontag where she says

    QUOTE START : "In a culture whose already classical dilemma is the hypertrophy of the intellect at the expense of energy and sensual capability, interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon art. Even more. It is the revenge of the intellect upon the world. To
    interpret is to impoverish, to deplete the world—in order to set up a shadow world of “meanings.” It is to turn the world into this world.(“This world”! As if there were any other.) The world, our world, is depleted, impoverished enough. Away with all duplicates of it, until we again experience more immediately what we have." : QUOTE END - SUSAN SONTAG

    Henry Van Dyke - White Bees
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    07/08/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    I think @Dean Owen is going to love this particular poem because even though the opening six lines is all about honey-makers, the rest of Henry Van Dyke's poem "White Bees" tells us the mistake Apollo made in calling Aristæus to manage his bees.

    It turns out that not only did Aristæus loiter and not pay attention to the needs of the bees, he got sidetracked by a nymph called Eurydice and he followed her but the nymph trod on a serpent and she vanished.

    By the time Aristæus came back to the bees under his care, they had all gone and here Henry Van Dyke writes

    "Lonely Aristæus, sadly home returning, found his
    garden empty,
    All the hives deserted, all the music fled.

    Mournfully bewailing, —“ah, my honey—makers,
    where have you departed?” —
    Far and wide he sought them, over sea and shore;
    Foolish is the tale that says he ever found them,
    brought them home in triumph,
    Joys that once escape us fly for evermore."

    Now Apollo did not let Aristæus remain a lost soul in a garden he did not belong and so writes Henry Van Dyke:

    "Till the great Apollo, pitying his shepherd, loosed him from the burden
    Of a dark, reluctant, backward—looking mind."

    "We're all busy little bees, full of stings, making honey day and night, aren't we honey?" - Bette Davis Geoff Hudson-Searle

    The honeybee is the only bee who die after their sting because the barb of the sting and even the abdomen of the honeybee remain in the skin of the stung. This means string of the honeybee is to protect the rest of the hive. The idea of stinging does not sit well in a marketing context and it is a death-sentence in the honeybee community, and so it is not really a great metaphor unless one really wants to operate in a sting operation. I get our stings can be a metaphor for attention but I am not writing this to die for attention, I explore this because it lets me think about these things. What modern marketing needs is less string and more honey. People (that being us) are wearing thin of the perpetual marketing machine, they do still get stung by it but there is evidence that the world of consumption is asking questions about a smater life these days, far more than they are responding to suggestions of a better product.

    #38 @Irene 🐝 Rodriguez Escolar si..... más o menos.... a ver hay que hacer un matiz, cada persona tenemos un ph y eso determina la última nota de un perfume, el matiz está en función de si el perfume está compuesto mayoritariamente por sustancias naturales: aceites esenciales, absolutos... o por sustancias sintéticas. A saber, las sustancias sintéticas duran muchísimo más que las naturales pero por poner un símil es una foto instantánea, evoluciona, cambia menos que un perfume compuesto por notas naturales que por seguir con el símil de la fotografía es un vídeo.... por eso la nota natural de cada piel modifica más un perfume nicho que uno comercial.

    Hi @CityVP 🐝 Manjit Thanks for your opinion!!!, your link is very interesting!!.

    As for your comment: "How it applies to beBee is harder for me to contemplate". you can actually choose to increase sales of your products by using olfactory marketing at the point of sale (Inditex), or linking odors with the final product (Apple ), Or in the De BeBee case is a social network, and therefore does not sell anything tangible to its users, you could increase "brand value", how?.

    I will give you an example that implies, values, tangible products and olfactory marketing: helping the poor through NGOs, beBee could collaborate Promote and link the brand with candles and incense with an exclusive fragrance beBee, whose sales help this NGO ... Value of the brand through the values it conveys, and link to a particular fragrance brand bebee, so that your bees can relate olfactory to the brand. ... it is just one example of Corporate Social Responsibility ... but there are many other things that could do with olfactory marketing and brand value.

    I know some stories of logos but not these, always fascinating to unpack meaning within the logo. There is also the FEDEX logo which when written produces an arrow sign from the lettering that is indicative of moving forward. You will see the arrow in the actual logo that joins EX http://logodesignerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/fedex2.gif

    The thing I appreciate most about logos is that when we first opened our own business, we set about trying to create a logo for our company but quickly found out just how challenging it is, not just having the ability to draw, but capture the essence of it. In the end we just came up with a compass but it was not earth-shattering or particularly memorable - logo design is quite an art.

    #13 Gracias Ana-María, no es sólo un problema de saber o no utilizar Internet. Franquicias hay malas, regulares y buenas, pero el negocio principal es la propia Franquicia, y lo peor, como bien dices, es ver personas que con su mayor ilusión cogen todo el montante que les queda del paro y montan una franquicia, y fracasa. Por un lado es aprovecharse de la candidez en beneficio propio, por otro tirarse a la piscina sin flotador. Un ejemplo clarísimo. Tú y yo vamos a la misma universidad y al mismo curso. Tú Sacas Matrícula y a mí me suspenden. Universidad la misma, profesores los mismos ....... Y yo porque he suspendido digo que la Universidad y los profesores son una M. Dependen tantos Factores .... igual es la Franquicia, Igual es como yo lo gestiono. Hay que estudiar cada caso en particular, yo creo que generalizar de manera fácil es un error.

    I am very glad to have translated this because it is a VERY GOOD buzz that goes well beyond what brand is but how much intelligence and effort is required to create an exceptional brand and how this work is connected to the creation of value. Very well done sir you have my utmost respect, finally someone who is writing about brand as a well designed intelligence rather than a painting by numbers D.I.Y. kit for clueless amateurs.

    Branding is a highly professional mindset. It is the difference between going into a house where all the design, furniture and space are so well coordinated and going into a house that looks like the showroom for IKEA. Of course the people who created the iconic brand of IKEA also worked to create there value contribution with the same degree of precision and detail that is explained in this buzz.

    Personal brand is often lipstick on a pig but professional branding, now that is an art I admire, and the greatest designers in agencies produce work that can be mindboggling in its brilliance and THINKING. At the level that Jorge is addressing brand here it is still the domain of the best of the best - and the most crucial thing Jorge says is

    "Es Crear Valor".

    I can now attend my evening events having read this, knowing that I have been read a mind that understand value creation.

    @Jorge 🐝 Carballo Pérez sin desmerecer al resto del artículo, lo que más me ha llamado la atención ha sido: "Voy a enfrentarme al papel en blanco para crear". Como es lógico, por tu profesión, lo enfocas al tema de la publicidad y la marca. Creo que la frase valdría para muchas profesiones. Como Ingeniero también he estado en muchas situaciones de papel en blanco para empezar a crear, tanto en la vida profesional como en la vida personal aplicando las necesidades profesionales.

    Creo, lo primero es estar cómodo, sentado o de pie, papel, lápiz (goma, si fuera necesario borrar y modificar) y dejar que lluevan las ideas. Una vez hecho el boceto, utilizar las herramientas informáticas disponibles para que vaya cogiendo verdadera forma. Yo lo he aplicado en mi profesión y, por lo que has escrito, tú también lo haces. Seguramente habrá otros muchos profesionales de otros sectores que también lo hagan.
    Trabajo, humildad, trabajo, inspiración, trabajo, reflexión, trabajo... Y ponerse en manos de quien sepa hacerlo, de quien te ayude, te guíe, te acompañe, te corrija y te oriente.. Pero ante todo: haber reflexionado sobre lo que se quiere y quererlo de verdad.

    #4 What causes changes in logo design is the arms race for attention. When billions of dollars are involved and an organization has a brand promise that matches the valuation, then branding is essential. The problem is that we have people who advocate the arms race for attention for EVERYONE. Thus instead of celebrating great brands we are creating an arms race that is brand dilution. We collectively do not have the imagination to envisage an alternative to a branded and mediated society - so we proceed with what seems the ONLY WAY. I celebrate great brands but I deplore the arms race for attention. It is reducing people into cosmetic packages and groups into manageable containers. In order to do justice to great brands we need to rethink Branding and the part we need to rethink is the absurdity of all trying to get attention - that is not great brand it is a branded existence.

    The biggest takeaway for me in this survey is the positive view of Generation Z which is effectively the children of millennials and therefore my grand-children.

    We also need to move away from talk of Gen Z, Gen Y, Gen X. Boomer etc because these are marketing classifications in a world that millennials clearly want to see as being more human.

    I have said many times that the 60's counter-culture is becoming a chapter in the history books as boomers die off.

    By having generational labels we create difference, whereas I celebrate diversity, for we can be whatever label we choose to be. I have the right not to be branded by a label, and yet human limitation is that we use labels to describe people.

    I cannot call older people dinosaurs, for it is their thinking which is old, and instead of worrying about who does not get the 21st Century, the question is, does this Deliotte report serve to provide me clues to what it means to adapt to the innovations of the 21st Century?

    I will use it as a compass while questioning its assumptions - so the report is informative but it is not gospel. I seek an open mind in a private space, so that my thoughts are my thoughts but my life evolves into the kind of growth our century needs. May we do this in parallel..

    I noticed I did not tag @Luisana Cartay so first I should do that. What fascinates me is how the world of data science is elevating the world of marketing into an evidence-based profession. There is still a culture of 20th Century marketers that segment, brand and label human beings, This is a culture I reject. It is also why I continue to have a problem with the expression "Personal Branding" because it is taken from the dustbin of Tom Peters Brand-You - a washing powder that one can put into the old fashioned washing machine to spin the masses.

    I on the other hand am still waiting for the expression of the Cluetrain Manifesto to realize itself. It is not the Manifesto itself which draws me in but the energy found in the words of those who signed the Cluetrain Manifesto in April 1999 - and how they resonated to the 95 Theses.

    Cluetrain Manifesto Signatories April 1999

    Yes do protect your reputation online and that is a no-brainer but be a part of the renaissance of the way we collectively eat, work and play. We don't need more revolutions, we need people who can integrate work as life and not live in the divided world that separates life and work as a false balance.

    What the Cluetrain Manifesto gets most right IMHO is that at a certain point, the human voice is unmistakable but to the still marketed and over-mediated masses they have no clue as to what their voice is, never mind embracing a renaissance existence. In this regard the masses are sedated the way Sigmund Freud and his nephew Edward Bernays set to control them, leading all the way to Al Ries and his refrain "position the mind not the product". There has to be a new way and this new way is what I like to refer to as renaissance., I embrace that.

    I also liked this piece where in Feb 2016 Rand Fishkin announced that he had got a book deal and would be writing a book about his startup journey, his battle with depression and his story with Moz. I can't see anywhere how close he is to finishing it, but my takeaway is that this guy is really living the TAGFEE code of values he instituted with Moz. That is still rare to see even in this so called transparent age. (As you can see I also use comments as bookmarks because this kind of stuff does genuinely interest me) LINK: https://moz.com/rand/its-official-im-writing-a-book-that-will-be-published-by-penguinrandom-houses-portfolio/

    Welcome to beBee Himani and thanks to Jan 🐝 Barbosa for your introduction. It has been a long time since I last read an article about conversion rate optimization and at that time it was a good piece by Luisana Cartay with her buzz here https://www.bebee.com/producer/@luisana-cartay/5-lessons-and-5-mistakes-in-ecommerce-from-12-cro-experts

    That I am not into SEO is not the reason I linked to the article, it is because I had not heard of Moz and was pleasantly surprised by what I got to know about them.

    I enjoyed learning about TAGFEE the culture code underpinning Moz's culture (and I dig that because I make a big deal out of stuff which is 21st Century thinking and traditional 20th Century marketing mindsets/tactics). https://moz.com/about/tagfee

    I also liked reading about the founder of Moz Rand Fishkin. While I have seen the name in prior tech talk, I had no idea until today what he did and, so what makes what Fishkin on first read 21st Century to me?

    Even though his response contains industry jargon, he went to great lengths to explain the strategy (i.e. how he executed on his thinking) and that is not something corporate folk would ever do, and he does outline that he was warned against writing this post from his own advisors, but he poured forth his rationale and it thus is a insightful because it reveals the inner working of his mind . https://moz.com/rand/moz-returns-to-seo/#more-3209

    So yes, welcome to beBee and this is what I do here, find interesting vista's and nooks to look into, through which I learn something I would not have done otherwise.

Tough question as I do not know all the facts and the details of the contracts. But anyway I think AIG Japan came through the crisis with their good reputation intact as Japan was sort of ringfenced. It's a good company, and I can't say the same about Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and the ratings agencies....

    As for the video I hope it does not start a new trend of rugby tackling people because there have been some weird trends that have led to people doing dangerous things - despite the fact that we may love this commercial because we would never think to rugby tackle people.

    Of course I never realized that Tokyo was such a dangerous place :-)

    As for AIG a nice advert or a sport sponsorship does not make the past go away https://www.thebalance.com/aig-bailout-cost-timeline-bonuses-causes-effects-3305693

    For sure ads like this work but that is because short-term thinking works and we are still a world swayed by marketing images rather than integrated thinking and long-term value.

    As for the All-Blacks - without any marketing what is not to love about them.

    Amen! And thank the gods for someone, in this case, a top-flight writer saying it out loud. I am so tired of being told how the written word leaves out important cues as to what is actually being said. To my mind, when that happens, more often than not the writing is poor or the reading is below par. I did an experiment to confirm that theory a while ago, in my sojourn into doing Stand-up Comedy via the written word. Most readers responded, saying they could sense the cadence and inflection, and hear the delivery in their Mind's ear. Anyone interested can see for themselves:

    #30 Hi @Milos Djukic let me take it down a different direction. Andy Murray is a personal brand, Bill Murray is a personal brand, Jim Murray is a personal brand, but that does not mean that every Murray is a personal brand, there are a curry of Murrays who are simply vindaloo. As Jim says many people don't have the know-how or the ability to build a personal brand.

    So what I am saying is that there is a great difference between professional personal brand and mass personal branding. Now let's take the case of Matthew John Murray http://murderpedia.org/male.M/m/murray-matthew.htm I really don't care about his personal brand, Mass personal brand and warped psychology are awful bed partners, Lennon's killer shot him because he thought he would gain his "aura" by doing so. In the case of M.J. Murray, it was more simple, he was just batshit crazy.

    I will introduce John D. Murray. Now this guy should have a personal brand and the idea of mass personal branding is good for his business. This is because he is plastic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery is his life blood and the more image conscious people get the more they seek nip and tuck and lot of nip, nip, nip. As brands get diluted how do we sort out which curry of Murray is becoming what type of vindaloo?

    At the end of the day attention is reduced to the visual, where there was 32 seconds to decide the MPB of a person, the greater mass personal branding grows, the shorter the attention span - so soon it will be 8 seconds to decide, and who knows how quick snap judgements will be made. In other words mass personal branding is not MPH or Miles Per Hour, it is MPB Miles Per Bullshit. It is at this point people are not product, but I have no problem with professionals selling a great personal brand.

    Dear Wise Guys, Do not do video. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

    You're right, Jim. Writers write. Their thinking and rethinking, writing and rewriting is what makes their arguments compelling, convincing and, if God is good, concise.

    You could turn what you write into podcasts or video, working from the printed page or notes. That would satisfy those who learn better by hearing or by hearing and seeing. Yet audio and video should be used with a purpose. They should go beyond letting people hear a voice and its inflections or see a face and its expressions. Good writers can convey all that in print. And you and Phil do.

    It might be nice to listen to a podcast while driving or watch a video when you're trying to avoid being noticed on United flights. But both risk distraction and a loss of concentration. That's why writing that demands your attention and engages your senses (to hear the spoken nuance and to see the likely glance) still endures.

    Outstanding post, Jim, and Phil. I think of a personal brand as one's reputation or persona. It's ours to create, protect and maintain. I like your statement in the Postscript-"It needs to cared for and tweaked constantly, and the best way to deal with the responsibility of a personal brand is to accept that the management of it is not just a project but a part of your life and a professional."

    Thanks guys. Twice today I've used this word to respond to a post here on beBee: Authentic.
    In my view, whether it is a personal or product brand if it is not authentic it will not be trusted. I believe Brand is the outcome of trust. You will have a personal brand because of human nature and the way we tend to compartmentalize things. The box your brand winds up in comes down to the trust you engender.

    So-called personal branding is not only related to networking on social media. This is just one micro-aspect of our global social and professional engagement. There are people who do not use social media and networks. Very often the "success" or "failure" on social networks are nothing but delusion, if success is not accompanied with results and progress in real life.

    #4 Thanks for the complimentary words @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and thanks as always for the enlightenment. To be quite honest, I'm not sure how this buzz morphed into this form. I had set out with the theme in mind of whether each individual is destined to remain in their subjective space, resonating only with elements that are synchronous with their subjectivity - kind of multiple universes. Following from this I mulled over if it were possible to break down the barriers between 'universes' and effect subjective change in individuals through greater receptivity. So I began writing from the ground up and before I knew it, I had gone into a whole different space. I imagine in this case, the right hemisphere surely led the left! Anyway, I'll pick up on the original theme in a future post.

    Dear @Ian Weinberg it was Edward de Bono who created the "Six Thinking Hats", but you have just created here the "Four Life Hats" In understanding that in this context there are four hats, I can see how we can be prepared for each of these hats but why it is desirable to channel energy to the two that create the greatest value add relationship. Peppers and Rodgers produced a far less elegant version of the two darker hats when they came up with their BZ's . BZ = Below Zero customers - customers who not only who consume time but create a cost for the business. Here is their framework

    Four Types of Customers

    Your Four Life Hats is something I find in comparison to be more elegant. It places our focus on the value relationship whereas in the Four Types of Customers my mind instantly gravitates to the BZ classification. I welcome more subtlety and nuance and these are life skills which I too can develop with much greater mindfulness - and that is not a given in the actual practice of relationship - what seems like a rational 2 x 2 decision box is far more complex and that best informs the way we learn and grow because discernment is at work here.

Indeed we experience personal gratification from the doing and the creating. We also experience gratification from those that engage with us and establish rapport." It's about finding your personal hat and coat I might say. I tip my hat to your good illustrative story Ian.

And our little zone of happiness and efficiency comes about by focusing on how to reach and inspire the milliners.

    As a writer and marketer, I find this post to be exceedingly meaningful. For the obverse of Javier's statement above is, if you want to be king of social networking platforms, you must place appropriate value on the content that is created and posted on your site.

    No argument from me on this. BecauseI believe that, for example, LinkedIn's huge surge in growth came immediately following its introduction of its longe-form post publishing sub-plstform. And I suggest to beBee it would do well not to underestimate the value of its Producer. Cheerss!

    All good points, @Juan Imaz, and timely considering the amount of information out there. I always tell people that one article, well researched, and written with care and accuracy (and interest) is worth ten articles that seem to double for streams of consciousness. On any social media site, I look for interesting posts, original in thought, and captivating in language. I'll tell you how you score on social media. It's when people comment saying, "I never would have thought of that." That means you're giving people something they wouldn't get anywhere else. That's the value of social media. Thanks for the post.

    The nicest thing about good content is that it's evergreen. Last summer I acted on a Home Depot article that led me past three of their competitors to buy what I needed. That post was written in 2008 and still selling in 2016. Nothing else I can think of can do that. Of course, that makes calculating an ROI next to impossible. The R is of near infinite duration.

    Attention spans are dire (32 seconds) so there is snackable content. I like to call that type of content "tire-kickers" as in people who don't buy a car but just come into a showroom to kick the tire.

    Good news in this data is the people who look for buyers, are generating leads on long-form content, but it is the visual component that is a challenge.

    Visual communication is a natural way for people to consume content. Glad I am not in the content marketing business but very good pointers to what is changing in this landscape.

    What all of this says to me is that if marketers wants to be a pro at this, don't be hokey and the marketing equivalent of a kindergarten cop. Me thinks I need to go on a photography course if I ever do get serious about content marketing.

    Global brands is the part of branding that I absolutely love - because of the sheer scale and magnitude of the brand work. When I come across top agencies and their strategists and creatives, it is just a different dimension that this work is conducted in and there is amazing work out there.

    Just the scale of spend is mind-boggling never mind the messaging, identity, promise and creative. I admire the big leagues and the mindset and kahuna's required to represent clients at this level.
See all
