    So, what does this mean? What ever product you sell, has a price. But what added value are you putting to it? In today's competitive market, it's no long about just selling a product, it's about what you add to that product that makes customers come back again and again. Are you providing added value to your product or service?

    #9 Agree, good discussion!

    If marketers do a superb job to convey real value (in content) yet the consumer is savvy enough not to need that value, they will not buy.

    It's why many people are turned off by "sales" people. They want THEIR perceived value - not the salesperson's - else they don't buy.

    #8 question.. content marketing has value, people value the message. They agree it is honest. But they dont think that the product has value.

    How would you classify such a scenario.. we could then proceed to examples.

    This is a great buzz. The message is great too. Im just adding a caution that a buyer should be aware that price is part of the value equation.

    21/04/2017 #8 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #7 On the whole, I think we agree. When you say "earlier it was about just selling the product", isn't that back when marketing focused on gimmicks to make you want a product - like beautiful music and happy people using your cheap product?

    I believe the point is that this approach no longer works. Perhaps It led to content marketing. Per http://contentmarketinginstitute.com/what-is-content-marketing/

    Traditional marketing is becoming less and less effective by the minute; as a forward-thinking marketer, you know there has be a better way.

    Enter content marketing.

    "Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience β€” and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action."

    I see the parallel between VALUABLE content in marketing and showing the value to buyers. Then they buy and see the value and are more interested in repeat purchases and referrals than they would be for cheapest price.

    Perhaps I am misguided. To your point, if I walk into a car dealership and someone appoaches me, I squirm. I know the value I seek and they can't talk me into it. I may look for some clarifications or new info to confirm my value bias, but I soon am looking for the best deal (cheapest price) as the next part of value. If the car sucked to begin with, no price would matter.

    #5 true. But when we say it is no longer about just selling the product, we are presuming that earlier it was about just selling the product. This quote merely reveals a fact which gets rehashed into putting value and price on opposite sides of the scale.

    Saving money is also part of the value equation. Not stressing ones pocket when cash is low is part of the value equation.

    The value equation also includes utility (whether percieved or creates), a unique experience and recovery on resale/disposal.

    Is it a good buyer practice to presume value or evaluate upon service of a requirement?

    Price is part of the value equation,

    21/04/2017 #5 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #3 Thanks for the reply, Devesh.

    I think many would agree that Warren Buffett is one of the best value investors, proactively. You are right that the quote is for that perspective.

    However, I believe like the Peter says, "it's no long[er] about just selling a product, it's about what you add to that product that makes customers come back". Sure some customers only care about price. If it is practically free many will buy for that reason, again and again.

    And, some will eventually realize that the cheap products don't last or give the perceived value they expected. "You get what you pay for" comes to mind.

    It seems to me that what differentiates sales is repeat customers, more value than price, lasting value.
    What meets sales is lowest price, least quality, minimal value.
    Devesh 🐝 Bhatt
    21/04/2017 #3 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt
    #2 we presume value, this quote is from the perspective of a buyer, like buying stocks.

    Now as a seller, i might give something that ads value, but sometimes people dont want value. They want the cheapest thing available because the cheapest thing is value, money saved.

    Value addition does apply to the US, but lately i am seeing American tourists being more price conscious than before..how does it apply their. Dont we use price and value as inputs to measure each other?
    Jared Wiese, 🐝 adds VALUE & RESULTS
    21/04/2017 #2 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adds VALUE & RESULTS
    #1 I'm not so sure about that. For example, is that what Warren Buffett does, consistently?

    I'd offer if you know your market and the value you provide, you can market ahead of time, correctly, gain customers and they will come back.

    Agreed. Great article.
    "Instead of thinking β€˜What can you offer me?’, individuals should ask: β€˜How can I help you?’"

    Look for how you can help others. You then open a world of mutual benefit ... and they might just then be willing to help you.

    19/04/2017 #1 Javier 🐝 beBee
    thanks @Wayne Yoshida. This is brilliant !

    DON'T BEGIN CONVERSATIONS WITH, 'WHAT DO YOU DO?'
    When you meet someone new, whether it is at an event or a dinner party, one of the first and most common questions that people ask is: What do you do? Many people wear their professions on their sleeves. However, if you really want to connect with someone, avoid jumping straight into business.

    "It's nice to connect with someone first as a person before diving into the professional piece."
    Brimer suggests asking questions like:

    ● What are you most interested in?

    ● What do you do outside of work?

    ● What are you most excited about right now?

    When meeting someone new, discuss recent travel experiences or trending news topics, but steer clear of work talk. This will help you establish common ground or bond over a shared activity. You can build a professional relationship later.

    beBee as a publishing platform is a bonus. For me it is an expression platform where I am a personal editor.

    There is money to be made on the web as a publisher but the traditional line of media was between editor and publisher. That line has been crossed over and over in the online media world, until we are all marketing agents because our principal instruction and learning is from marketers and not journalists. The revival of the human mind will be found through an appreciation for journalism and praising the quality mind of great journalists.

    This is the spirit of Edward Murrow talking and not Donald Trump. Trump is a fine marketer, he has shown that through marketing alone one can ascend to a position of great importance, but until we become aware that an editor is different from a publisher, we will continue living in the world as if its only a marketing fishbowl. Great profits in the short-term but no long-term societal value.

    beBee therefore is a fantastic expression platform and I welcome my marketing friends to explore it as a publishing platform - but don't buy me, think for yourself - that is also the same message the Beatles gave decades ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKchPO4kzCk and even as the Beatles were well marketed they were also great personal editors - a.k.a. their songwriting ability https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9H8zp72dxg Don't follow me, be you.

    #2 I can say I finally 'GOT' twitter. But here is the real value that simply won't exist with any other Twitter automation web app - ONLY MyTweetPack provides the 'pack'/'hive' concept. Cooperative tweets and retweets is very likely invented right here.

    Let me be clear with an example. Twitter required my password to be changed last weekend. So I stopped tweeting myself. Did this stop my twitter activity? No, I didn't even notice, because all of the OTHER MyTweetPack users who have me in their pack keep right on tweeting my stored tweets. My books and articles are still getting tweeted even when I myself am on a technical hiatus.

    This is a classic case of teamwork, adding value by helping others, and distributing marketing & promotion using the good old fashioned concept of teamwork.

    I cannot imagine this power exists in any other automation tool.

    They were built to serve a user. MyTweetPack was crowdsourced & created with this particular community framework in mind.

    Some excellent advice, especially for any newBees that are joining our community. I am in a very new position but have already talked up beBee and have one colleague that wants to read my 'story'. Our content is a great conversation starter. I often use the phrase: "I read an article on beBee" It never fails that someone will ask "What's beBee?" My answer: "The best professional social networking site I've encountered yet and you won't believe the great people you'll meet there!" I love my Bees and I can't brag on the site enough!

    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:

    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    12/04/2017 #32 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #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.

    Ok guys, One day I will read your' He said He said 'in voices I have for you guys in my head and post it online :-) You will probably fall over laughing, but I sure get a kick out of these very spirited discussions. Now let me say, after much thought IMHO - a personal brand is indeed different in how it is promoted from products or services. It cannot speak or distinguish itself, nor is it able to differentiate its purpose. That is done by marketers and product creators. The effectiveness of branding will be master through many types of personalities pitching and showcasing its 'form' to differentiate its purpose based on their views. Personal branding is as the person presents themselves. Even with coaching or a script, that personal brand is subjected to emotional triggers which are formed based on interaction, authenticity and trust. There are good brands and bad brands. Both products and people. Yes, as you observed if they are using a script they will at some point stray and then the image created changes. Reality bites.
    Thanks for the vote of confidence @Jim Murray and @Phil Friedman Excellent discussion , will probably have to come back.. It has me thinking... great stuff guys!

    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."
    Jerry Fletcher
    11/04/2017 #22 Jerry Fletcher
    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.

    I have a digital ambivalence to the social media thing. I have spent a very long career being an anonymous nobody - and I am damned good at it. I can walk through a room, pick the brains I want and noone would remeber me ten minutes or an hour later. I understand that my digital brand lasts about 6 seconds.....significantly less than Andrew the Nugg Guy. And there are many days it pisses me off.
    Luckily, there is a new war coming and I will get to disappear again - same game as it always was.

    Excellent post

    Often it is not us the clients who determine who the influencers are - these are often chosen by the owners of the Social Media Site. As part of the reaction against that on Linkedin there is a group called "The Unfluencers" which has some of the most active and supportive people on LinkedIn.

    Influence is an ephemeral beast adn sometimes it is not always clear who is influencing whom.

    Phrases like "stop acting immature!" Or "When are you are going to grow up?!" are really funny...I can sssure you (as a world renowned expert in Developmental Neuroscience) that with each "tick o' the clock"...(those of who are still alive) have matured (grown up) in accordance with our individual epigenetic trajectory...

    ...the process (defined in fact) as the inevitable increasing probability (stastical "closing in") of our death.

    This is an inescapable truth ; unfortunately when people "yell at you for acting otherwise"... they are engaging in folly...even worse, would be to believe that anyone is telling you such things is saying anything with a basis in reality.

    It's like when someone says: "What's wrong with you; don't you have any "COMMON SENSE?!"...what they really mean (of course) is that they asked you to do something...and you didn't do it the way they would have done it.

    #44 #43 You provided a lot to think about, @Harvey Lloyd - because it is meaningful and necessary to voice the negative, to allow dissent, and to give everyone a chance to have an occasional outburst on deeply felt topics or held beliefs.

    But there is a difference between a hot button or two and a consistent style of leveling attacks against people, what they do for a living, what they chose to believe, and doing so as a part of a campaign of self-aggrandizement.

    My call to action is that we not judge someone for the occasional negative situation but that we do evaluate them over a longer period for their ability to contribute to the advancement of a common objective.

    If all they ever do is judge, tear down ideas, refer to their right's of free speech as a value that prompts constant dissent, talk of how they are victimized, and create fault-lines among other members of the community, it is fair to say that at some point, on one of their particularly bad days, they will self-destruct, taking as many as they can with them without any conception of the collateral damage to all who witnessed the train wreck.

    I want to dedicate this buzz to @Milos Djukic - a quintessential hive-player who is a friend to so many people. You and your daily contribution to beBee deserves immense respect. I wrote some thoughts a few days ago to perhaps make it easier for you to prioritize your time.... as those with self-serving agendas will simply continue to attempt to monopolize this platform in ways that do not align with the vision of the main hive, all the users, and the employees putting heart and soul into building an affinity meeting-ground for the world.

    You are a priceless c-butterfly, Milos.
See all
