5 Lessons On Influencer Marketing And Brand Transparency

5 Lessons On Influencer Marketing And Brand Transparency | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

Influencer marketing is reshaping the way businesses market and sell their products. Find out what three of today's top experts have to say about it....There are some marketing pros out there who think that influencer marketing is a game-changer. Social media has leveled the playing field so that it’s not just the Lady Gagas and Justin Biebers of the world that can influence a gaggle of girls to buy a new perfume – now everyone has the potential to become an influencer in his or her own career. Consumers trust their friends, family and advocates far more than they trust banner and TV ads, and they’re more likely to make a purchase because of a recommendation than a billboard.As a brand champion for talent, I think it’s important to understand how influencer marketing is reshaping the way businesses market and sell their products and create brand ambassadors, so I recently sat down with three respected authorities in the field of influencer marketing. We talked about the state of influencer marketing today, the impact that greater transparency has on the marketplace, and the increasing role that more transparent influencer platforms and tools will play for leaders....

Consumer Insight reveals Asian consumers' psychological make-up

Consumer Insight reveals Asian consumers' psychological make-up | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
A new study has decoded the psychological make-up of Asian consumers. They value the family, believe in hard work, and are financially conservative.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

A brand new new study  has decoded psychological makeup of asian consumers from 10 key economies in the region.

 

The study of 7,000 consumers iidentified

Four distinct segments of consumers who are generally characterized as: 

1. They value the family, believe in hard work, and are financially conservative,

2. They desire respect for the tremendous progress they have made, and yet

3. Shun flashy expressions of wealth.:

 

The four consumer segments are:

• Inner-Directed Traditionalists (19% of population), who value religion and tradition, tend to be thrifty and less materialistic;

 

• Outer-Directed Strivers (29% of population) tend to have lower education and incomes. They value work success highly, seeking endorsement in the form of fame and material wealth, just like the celebrities they admire;

 

• Survivor Oriented (13% of population) consumers tend to be older, less educated, with lower incomes, and are financially less optimistic; and

 

• Mainstream Asian Values (39% of population)

 

Now for the regions where these consumers are found.

 

Inner-Directed Traditionalists make up more than half the consumers in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand, as these populations are highly religious.

 

Outer-Directed Strivers made up 59% of India's consumers and

 

25% of those in China. Survivor-Oriented consumers are found mostly in Japan and South Korea, reflecting these countries aging populations.

 

According to Professor Batra, of the UnIversity of Michigan who led the research, "Singapore consumers tend to value creativity and the need to be different and unique. And perhaps in response to the hectic lifestyle here, Singaporeans yearn for more free time for themselves."

 

To use this information to market to Asians, read:

The Problems with Incubators, and How to Solve Them

The Problems with Incubators, and How to Solve Them | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
Financing isn't success, and office space isn't value.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

Samantha Mitra's article in te Harvard BUsiness Review discusses buisiness incubators, the problem with them and solutions to these problems.

 

There are over 7,500 incubators worldwide. Most of them fail.  She states" for incubators to live up to their full economic potential, they need to overcome two pitfalls: they need to provide real value, not just office space, and they need to measure success in more than just outside funding."

   

Teh article identified two things that determine whether a business can get off the ground successfully and sustainably: a validated market opportunity with customers willing to pay for a product or a service; and a product or service that addresses such an opportunity.   MItra states: "The only incubators I consider “real” are the ones that help entrepreneurs achieve these two goals."

 

She quotes D’Agostino, executive director of the technology venter at Louisiana State University  “Incubators must evaluate the management capability of the entrepreneurs and assist in finding management for these companies. Especially when the entrepreneur is a technologist lacking business skills, it is critical that the incubator assists the owner in finding managers that have the skills necessary to manage a successful entity and take it to the next level.”

 

"Technologists can, actually, be taught these skills. Hiring managers may often be expensive, but high IQ engineers have historically been very good at picking up business skills with the right mentoring. So getting to the next level is well within their capacity, and the role an incubator ought to play is to guide them in that process."

 

MItra concludes,  incubators need to be decoupled from financing. While they need to continue to act as a bridge to capital, predicating their success on getting businesses funded will keep them focused on trying to find the less than 1% of start-ups that are fundable. In other words, coming to the rescue of victory!

The other 99%, then, continue to be ignored.

A scalable incubation model for the other 99% is a requirement for the next rev of capitalism.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 19, 2013 10:09 AM

Every business needs marketing stories (there is more than just one). Here is a terrific article by Sonia Simone that lays out the essential elements every marketing story needs.


I like that Simone discusses who the real hero of the story is -- your customer -- and how to think about that. This is a very crticial point to get. Otherwise your stories will miss the mark.


Simone explains all the elements in a way that is very easy to understand. She gives examples, and lays out the elements following story structure. That makes the topic even easier to grasp and take action on.


Other business stories you may use to transfer knowledge, bring your vision and values to life, build teamwork and leadership may have different elements and different structures than what is presented here.


But if you need to focus on your marketing stories (and who doesn't!), then work with these 5 elements to win.

No man (or woman) is an island, and business owners need to seek advice and guidance from other successful business owners, if they themselves are to become successful in their respective endeavours.

 

One of the best ways to become better as a business owner, is to apply relevant advice that other business owners have successfully applied to their businesses, that they themselves received from others who went before them.

Many are fascinated with Sir Richard Branson and all that he has been able to accomplish in his lifetime.

 

I love to read about and learn from successful entrepreneurs; what is their daily routine, what kinds of decisions do they make, and what trials have they have had to overcome to make it to their mountaintops?

 

Take a little time out of your day for some inspiration from one of the world's most intriguing CEO's. Here are a few:

 

“Some 80% of your life is spent working. You want to have fun at home; why shouldn’t you have fun at work?”


“You can never go too far wrong by thinking like a customer who’s new to the business.”

 

“The time to go into a new business is when it’s badly run by others.”

Mary Ramos's curator insight, September 14, 2013 2:46 AM

I think it's interesting the way small business owners and large business owners differentiate at handling the same things. One thing may be more of importance to a small owner than an owner with a larger company. It could also be the lack of experience that small companies may have opposed to a larger company who deals with larger amounts of things on a day to day basis.
