How Chanel Wins Social With Stylish Content Marketing & Storytelling

How Chanel Wins Social With Stylish Content Marketing & Storytelling | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Content is the core of any strong digital marketing strategy, and a strong narrative is the foundation of all good content.

When the iconic high-fashion house Chanel sought to revolutionize the way it engaged with customers, content and technology was at the forefront of its approach.

The 105-year-old brand has a clear advantage when it comes to storytelling – a rich history. The legacy of the company’s late founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel is so compelling, that the brand’s insignia – two interlocking C’s – is one of the most recognized and respected in the world.

Not only has the company managed to ramp up engagement with the development of their highly interactive, commerce-driven website, it has astutely leveraged the modernist philosophy of its creator, Ms. Chanel, best exemplified in the following quote...

Too much choice can harm your business | Graham Jones | Internet Psychologist

Too much choice can harm your business | Graham Jones | Internet Psychologist | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
If your business offers lots of choice you make it harder for customers to make a purchase and they will be more unhappy with what they buy.
Art Jones's insight:
Reducing choice for buyers

"One way of presenting lots of choices but in a limited way is to categorise. Human beings are programmed to love categories. Imagine you sell coffee mugs. The first thing to do is to sort them into categories. You might have “large, medium and small”, for instance. People then click on one of those choices. They are then faced with more choices such as “round, straight or tapered”. Again, they click on their choice to be presented with another selection, perhaps “white, bright, pastel” – and so on. In other words you let people make increasingly narrow choices.


The alternative is to have a web page which shows the 250 kinds of mugs you sell. The result is confusion and a focus on the negatives, together with associated delay in decision-making. For all its brilliance, Amazon would sell a lot more if it limited our choices."

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Web Design Basics
Love these five web design basics:

* Learn TYPE Design.
* Pick Great Fonts That Fit Your TONE.
* Pick 3 Color Palette & STICK TO IT.
* Photos = RIGHT SIZE.
* When In Doubt, Give It SPACE.

This last tip is our favorite. Nothing we hate more than claustrophobic web design. Problem is claustrophobia is easy to create. We all WANT to do so much.

When I was an Ecommerce Director we studied our links carefully. We found that 5% of our links received 90% of the clicks. That equation turned out to be a fractal. No matter how small we cut it, no matter how we shifted the design, a small % of the links dominated.

This means MOST of what WE, as designers, think is important isn't. We learned to be Google - Vicious about what we added. Adding meant something had to COME OFF the design. This strange User Interface math means you have more ROOM than you realize.

Find what matters and LINK IT. Design what matters and eliminate the flotsam and jetsam so you have SPACE around what matters since it is that SPACE that signals IMPORTANCE to your visitors.  .


Via Martin (Marty) Smith
Art Jones's insight:

If you were only able to follow one rule, follow rule #5


5. When in doubt, give it space


The most important design tip is also the simplest: “Make sure your content has breathing room; give it proper margins will help with legibility and focus.

The New Geography of Super-Charged Startup Cities

The New Geography of Super-Charged Startup Cities | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
The Bay Area clearly dominates in software companies that have been valued at a billion dollars or more, but China is coming on strong.
Art Jones's insight:

"The big takeaways: The Bay Area remains the world’s undisputed leader for uber-successful startups, but the center of the action does appear to have moved from Silicon Valley to urban areas in and closer to San Francisco. This urban shift is evident not just there but in the rise of great urban centers like New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo as important startup hubs.


China is also evolving into something much more than world’s factory, with 26 billion-dollar startups along its East Coast, running from Beijing to Shanghai to Guangzhou."

SIMONE Serni - STAY STAY SOCIAL ZEN: NEUROMARKETING TO READ THE MIND OF THE CONSUMER: Eyetracking & HEAT MAPS | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
Il Neuromarketing è una disciplina avanzata, il cui scopo è quello di indagare e studiare i processi della mente per rendere più chiari: comportamento e decisioni dei consumatori. E' una nuova area del marketing (che investe market intelligence, product design, comunicazione, branding, posizionamento, targeting, tecniche di vendita, ecc.). E' possibile leggere nella mente dei consumatori? No, non è proprio così semplice. Ma è possibile migliorare la comunicazione e le tecniche marketing per rendere prodotti, immagini e testi più accattivanti ed immediati.
Art Jones's insight:

excerpt:

"Neuromarketing is a discipline that fuses together traditional marketing, neurology and psychology (behavioral sciences), in aiming to understand / identify what is happening in the brains of people in response to stimuli related to the observation of products, brands, photos, advertising . The ultimate goal is to determine new strategies to facilitate the action of purchase."

Via Marie Ennis-O'Connor
Art Jones's insight:

This article includes great detail on what to do and things to avoid. I found that there was one section in the summation that resonated with me the most, because it provides an overarching theme for web-design.


Excerpt:

Apply common sense in your design and layout decisions:
  • If you’re not a UI designer, don’t try to be “trendy” with your layout. Stick to conventions that people are used to; it’s always safest.
  • Don’t try to copy a competitor or “big brand” just because you think they might know what they are doing. You could be copying a mistake or outdated strategy. Stick to your site goals, and get professional advice for your unique website needs.

Authenticity: 1 Idea, 3 Facts, 5 Tips - CCL e-Newsletter October 2014

Authenticity: 1 Idea, 3 Facts, 5 Tips - CCL e-Newsletter October 2014 | Modern Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it
Authenticity is the healthy alignment between internal values and beliefs and external behavior. What does it mean for leaders and organizations?
Art Jones's insight:

This post addresses the importance of leaders to be authentic.

There are 5 solid tips to digest.  I've excerpted tip # 5 because it instructs how to cast of the fake images of what we think an executive leader is and to reveal the personality and humanness that is naturally who you are.

Excerpt:

#5

Rethink "leadership image." A big obstacle to authenticity is a strong need to maintain a certain image. If so, you probably have defined your image of "executive" or "leader" more narrowly than you need to. Try to let go of the tight limits or expectations of how you need to appear — revealing your personality and humanness is a better sign of effective leadership.

Increase your self-awareness. A key component of behaving authentically is to understand what you care about most. What are your values, likes and dislikes? This might sound simple, but we often avoid or overlook the process of clarifying what is most important.

Art Jones's insight:

The Employee as Brand Ambassador:


Once you have embraced social media marketing as a tool, the next thing you do is think about how to reach the influencers in your marketplace.


Most companies completely ignore the ready pool of committed influencers, with allegiance to the brand and  already committed to the success of every mission and marketing campaign. Those influencers are the trusted employees of the brand.


The following is a short list of the benefits companies do realize when employees are engaged and trained to become Brand Ambassadors.


 (excerpted from the article)


"LinkedIn and the Altimeter Group have found that socially engaged employees are 27% more likely to feel optimistic about their company’s future and 20% more likely to stay at their current company. These same companies are 57% more likely to get increased sales leads and 58% more likely to attract talent."
