Play the Online Marketing Game Like “Charlie Hustle”

With Major League Baseball’s spring training under full force, it inspires me to look at how we approach our “online marketing game.” We can learn a lot about winning “conversions” from how the game is played. Most baseball people will tell you that you can win the game with the “long” ball or with the “short” game. When you convert a visitor to a sale or to a lead, hopefully you have scored a run your competitor won’t. Pete Rose…

Does Your Search Strategy Depend On Customers’ Memory?

Men dread these moments: my wife’s errand was to go to the drugstore and pick up…diapers. My little guy was on his last one. I was ready to get him his Pampers when I was stymied by the store selection. The sale was nearly lost! As I stood looking at the row of diapers, all I could see was Pampers Cruisers with Dry Max. My mission was to return with Pampers Baby Dry. No husband ever wants to return with…

Is Your Corporate Metabolism Killing You?

The ‘Remarkable’ Challenge in a World of Mouth Economy

Remarkable –adjective – Worthy of being or likely to be noticed, especially as being uncommon or extraordinary. “You want great marketing but nobody can be creative enough to compensate for the problem you have.
