How to Brand Your Product. Is branding good for your business?

How to Brand Your Product. Is branding good for your business? | Prionomy | Scoop.it

The establishment and protection of a good brand name doesn't come cheap, but the equity value of a good brand name can be worth many times more than the annual earnings of the business itself.

 

Developing and building any new brand is time consuming and very expensive. Your competitors will be only too happy to ride on your success if you allow them.

 

To prevent this, you must protect your brands, slogans and logos from the very moment that you decide to use them. That means doing so even before you introduce your brands to the world. This protection is vital.

Is Your Leadership Limiting Your Organizations Ability to Grow? | Prionomy | Scoop.it

This is the first in our series of articles that looks at leadership capacity and its impact on organizational growth and transformation. The full series will be available for download as a white paper once it is completed.

 

Leadership capacity is more than simply skill development; it’s about performance, growth, transformation and change. For the purpose of our discussion in this series of articles, let’s define it as;

 

“Leadership Capacity is the skilful use of leadership attributes for the growth and development of ourselves, our colleagues and our organization”.

 

Great leaders not only understand how to engage and inspire their teams to get the best results — they understand the need to create participatory and collaborative processes that develop the abilities of the next generation of leaders.

 

Leadership lays the groundwork for success

 

Successful companies do not happen by accident. They are the result of building effective leadership capacity and an awareness and willingness to take the necessary steps in identify internal talent and nurture them into the leaders of tomorrow.

10 Creative Ways to “Level-Up” Your Presence on Facebook

10 Creative Ways to “Level-Up” Your Presence on Facebook | Prionomy | Scoop.it

I love Facebook – not only because it helps me remember when to wish my friends a “Happy Birthday”, but also because it has been an extremely effective tool for my brand.

 

For example, over the past year Facebook has overwhelmingly been the number one site for referral traffic to SPI:

 

Again, this is for traffic coming to the blog – not necessarily the method that new visitors have found out about me (which is, as I’ve recently found out, through my podcast). In fact, if you look across the row you’ll see that Facebook actually has the lowest percentage in terms of new visits, at 19.05%...

The following are some tips on how to make your case studies a powerful asset in soliciting business.

Why You Should Wear The 6 Thinking Hats On Your Blog

Why You Should Wear The 6 Thinking Hats On Your Blog | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Wearing the 6 Thinking Hats on your blog helps in generating valuable, interesting and diverse content.

 

What are the 6 Thinking Hats?

 

Dr. Edward de Bono’s 6 Thinking Hats is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. And once they’re learned, the tools can be applied immediately!

 

The premise of this concept is that the human brain thinks in a number of distinct ways which can be identified, deliberately accessed and hence used in a structured way to develop strategies for thinking about particular issues.

 

De Bono identifies six distinct states in which the brain can be “sensitized”. In each of these states, the brain will identify and bring into conscious thought certain aspects of issues being considered.

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload | Prionomy | Scoop.it
Large-scale waves of Facebook comments can come at any time, for a variety of reasons. Try these steps for effective comment management.


Human beings are social by nature, and not surprisingly, we choose to spend much of our talkative time on Facebook.


Comscore released data in December 2011 that showed Facebook is virtually synonymous with social media. Worldwide, people spend three out of every four minutes of their total social networking time on Facebook.


Check out the recent comment counts on nearly any major Facebook brand Page — the numbers get big very quickly. Disney’s image of Happy, the dwarf from Snow White earned over 1,600 comments at the time of publication. Coca-Cola asked fans whether they have ice-cold Cokes in their fridges – 2,170+ comments.

The Twitter Hashtag Game

The Twitter Hashtag Game | Prionomy | Scoop.it

This post is part of the “Marketing That Works” Ideas Contest, showcasing 20 of the most innovative marketing ideas from the blogosphere’s up and coming marketers. If you like the post, please show your support for the contestant by tweeting, liking, sharing, and commenting below!

 

For my marketing idea, I created something called the “Hashtag Game.”

 

Like Naomi Dunford said: “It’s the shit that we do to get people to buy our shit.” There are many things we can do to attract potential readers and customers such as: producing powerful content; word of mouth; Facebook marketing; free eBooks to lure people in; and guest posting.

 

There are also the little, effortless things that we forget to do that can add up overtime: adding hashtags at the end of our tweets.

 

For example: If I were tweeting “Engagement From Scratch” . . . and let’s just say I don’t have 50,000 followers but I want to spread the word about it.

One Reason Why Your Blog Isn’t Making Money

One Reason Why Your Blog Isn’t Making Money | Prionomy | Scoop.it

According to one estimate, 3 million posts will be published today. Approximately 540,000 of these posts were written by professional bloggers trying to transition their audience from reading to buying. Others hope their posts are compelling enough to prompt a return visit.


However, most bloggers aren’t making a dime from their blog.


The reasons why haunt each blogger every night. Are they passionate enough? Are they engaging enough? Surprisingly, these are the wrong questions to ask.


The reason why most blogs don’t make money can be traced back to one decision (or lack of one).


The World is My Audience


Social media is the most egalitarian marketing discipline since broadcast media. Bloggers naturally feel that everyone is interested in their topic. You rarely hear people wondering if they have the right readers. They just assume that they do. Even when they think about their reader’s characteristics, it’s done on a surface level.

The Secret to Attracting 1,000 True Fans

The Secret to Attracting 1,000 True Fans | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Everyone says play bigger, grow; keep expanding.

But is all growth and development good, or even necessary?

 

I’ve learned that there’s no guarantee that growth will make a difference in your business. You can have more people on your list, and no one actually buying. You can have more traffic, and only crickets in your comments section.

 

There’s a big difference between growth that’s meaningful and growth that’s hollow. The difference is depth.

 

A lot of people say you need 1,000 true fans. I think that’s a good, tangible goal to aim for.

 

For our purposes, “True Fans” are defined as: People that buy everything you create. When you announce the launch of a product, creation, or offer, they are actively waiting for you to release it. They refresh the “coming soon” page. They comment on every post. They tell everyone they can about what you do.


1,000 is good because it’s a number that we can wrap our minds around. It seems like a stretch, but it also seems doable. You can convert one true fan a day if you’re really on your game.

How to know what your audience really wants

How to know what your audience really wants | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Your audience does not want your content.

 

Your audience probably does not want to hear from you at all.

 

If you think that because your website looks great that people will want to visit it … think again.

 

What do they really want?

 

Your audience and potential customers know who they are and probably have a very good idea of their goals. At the very least they know their immediate needs.

 

They are looking for answers to questions, advice, and resources that help people like them get the stuff people like them want.

 

When someone seeks out and clicks on your content it is only as a means to that end (even if that need is 10 minutes coffee break entertainment)...

8 Essential Business Rules For Those Who Don't Believe In Rules

8 Essential Business Rules For Those Who Don't Believe In Rules | Prionomy | Scoop.it

I don’t read a lot of business books. (Actually, I never read them.) But I do read the lists of the best-selling business books. Those lists give you a lot of insight into the current trendy areas for leadership and strategy. That’s a good reason to run in the opposite direction. Fast.


These best-sellers all have jazzy titles like “What Would Lincoln Do” and “The Kindergarten Test: If A Five Year Old Can’t Understand Your Plan, Start Over.”

 

I made all those up, but you get the point. At Conduit, our 7-year-old Israeli startup, we don’t necessarily do things by the book.
