"Single-Minded Proposition" (cartoon) | Tom Fishburne: Marketoonist | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
At the heart of a great marketing story is usually a single-minded proposition, or SMP. The SMP sums up the most important thing you can say about the brand or product. It ignites creative briefs and serves as a rally cry for marketing communication.

 

The more we have to say in marketing, the less that people will listen. Deciding what not to communicate is more important than what to communicate. Great marketing starts with great editing.

Fortune 500 executives behind on social networking

Fortune 500 executives behind on social networking | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
With more than half of the U.S. public on Facebook and more than 200 million tweets sent each day (about 30 percent from the U.S.), American life is continuing to enmesh itself with social networks. But for the CEOs of the top 500 U.S. companies, social networking is a small — if existent — piece of successful living.

 

In a report released Thursday by Domo and CEO.com, the online presence of Fortune 500 companies’ top executives was compared to that of the general public, revealing that less than 30 percent have at least one profile on social networks. The vast majority have none.

 

Some of these accounts sit inactive — five of the 19 CEOs on Twitter have never tweeted — while others seem underutilized — 25 of the 38 CEOs on Facebook have less than 100 friends. The only social network that these executives outdo the U.S. public on is LinkedIn, the “world’s largest professional network.”

 

Perhaps the loneliest social networks for these top executives are Google+ and Pinterest. The former has only four of the CEOs — including Google’s own Larry Page — and the latter has none, despite Pinterest’s growing base of approximately 12 million American users.

 

Although the percentage of the top executives on social networks sits at less than 30 percent, Wikipedia has profiles for more than 36 percent of them. Only one of the CEOs has and maintains his own blog: John Mackey of Whole Foods.

 

The Fortune 500 companies have other social networking stars as well. Michael Rapino of Live Nation has the most Facebook friends with more than 2,000, and Rupert Murdoch recently surpassed Meg Whitman as the most-followed CEO on Twitter with more than 280,000 (to Whitman’s 240,000).

 

Warren Buffett touts third place in Klout score, behind Murdoch and Michael Dell, even though he has only tweeted once from his official account, on Feb. 20, 2009, when he told his followers to “Stay tuned!” for the latest news and analysis from one of the world’s wealthiest investors.

 

LinkedIn is home to 129 of the top CEOs, above the one-fifth of Americans who use the site, but 36 of these executives have 1 or 0 connections. More than 30 of the executives’ profiles have not been updated with their current companies or titles.

But why does it matter?

 

“While the majority of Fortune 500 CEOs have yet to pick up the pace in their personal social media efforts, it seems those who do will be better equipped to successfully grow their companies,” the report concludes.

Expatriate spouses: what do they want? | Global Mobility Articles and studies

Expatriate spouses: what do they want? | Global Mobility Articles and studies | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Every time an expatriate employee returns home before completing his or her assignment, their employer loses $1 million. That’s on average – it could be more.

 

What causes premature returns home? The evidence clearly shows that spouse and family adjustment issues are the number one reason. However, employers have been reluctant to establish spousal assistance programs.

 

 HR managers consistently rate finding employees who will accept international assignments as a major challenge, increasingly due to the prevalence of ‘dual career’ families. Thus in order to enhance expatriate adjustment, reduce expatriate failure rates and to enhance expatriate performance, it is critical that HR professionals address spousal adjustment is

Management Tip ~ 5 Simple Steps To Command Your Day

Management Tip ~  5 Simple Steps To Command Your Day | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Don't allow the fear of making the wrong decision prevent your decision. No decision is the wrong decision~Shaun Mahoney

The longer you live the more life changing decisions you will make along the way. Every decision we make shapes our reality. Our decisions shape our present and our future. Who we are as a person is a direct reflection of the decisions we make. This is especially true when you are running our own business. For many the problem is knowing they have reached the point when a final decision needs to be made. For others the challenge is actually making a decision. Taking command of your day involves making decisions before your day even starts.

If you don't control your day, things can quickly go a rye and your day will control you.

Client vs. Customer: Your Mindset Matters

Client vs. Customer:  Your Mindset Matters | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

You may think it’s a simple matter of semantics, or maybe you’ve grown tired of hearing the debate over and over, but I think it’s important for any organization to revisit this issue regularly to ensure you’re maintaining an appropriate branding and “client service” mindset that can impact your business success. It’s NOT a B2B vs. B2C thing.

 

It’s About Value, Emotions, and Lasting Relationships


Customer = person that purchases a product or service
(i.e., “transactional”)

 

Client = person who engages the personal advice / services of another
(i.e., “relational”)
