Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 3, 3:42 PM

Here's a fascinating post direct from the New York Times talking about the rising popularity of catalogs -- and how they've been changing.


OK -- I love catalogs. Not only do I buy from them, but I also learn, discover, and dream. As the NYT's reporter Rebecca Ruiz points out, retailers are adding catalogs back into their marketing, but with a twist.


Now storytelling is taking center stage. We've known some retailers, like Lands End, have made real stories part of their catalog tradition. With marketing bringing storytelling more and more into their work, catalogs are now focused on visually telling stories, and including story triggers into their pages. 


Get ready for more catalogs in the mail -- and they promise to be even more enjoyable! Go read this article to find out specifically what's going on and who's getting into the game.


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at http://www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, February 4, 6:26 AM

De aandacht voor de catalogus is terug in de VS. Niet met de nadruk op alle producten van een firma, maar met foto's, lifestyle en verhalen die bij die producten en firma passen. Door de 'zware lading' aan informatie via internet zou de catalogus in nieuwe vorm opnieuw van waarde kunnen worden voor bedrijven.

Jane Dunnewold's comment, February 4, 11:24 AM
Really interesting to consider. I know there are catalogs I sure love to read - even when I never intend to buy anything. IT IS about the inspiration. I love it that print is "coming back.." and wonder what else will follow suit?

Change Leader, Change Thyself

Change Leader, Change Thyself | QUAC Design Thinking | Scoop.it

Leo Tolstoy, the Russian novelist, famously wrote, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

 

Tolstoy’s dictum is a useful starting point for any executive engaged in organizational change. After years of collaborating in efforts to advance the practice of leadership and cultural transformation, we’ve become convinced that organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves.

 

Building self-understanding and then translating it into an organizational context is easier said than done, and getting started is often the hardest part. We hope this article helps leaders who are ready to try and will intrigue those curious to learn more.

SXSW: Millennials Trust User-Generated Content 50% More Than Traditional Media - SocialTimes

SXSW: Millennials Trust User-Generated Content 50% More Than Traditional Media - SocialTimes | QUAC Design Thinking | Scoop.it

User-generated content makes up 30 percent of millennials media time, and they trust it 35 percent more than other sources.

 

The findings provide marketers with insights into millennials’ media habits and how to access them. This generation will soon have record-breaking purchasing power and the study confirms that millennials are most influenced by user-generated content.

 

As a whole, millennials spend a whopping 18 hours per day consuming different media across several devices. User-generated content makes up 30 percent of that time (5.4 hours), second only to traditional media like print, television and radio at 33 percent. But millennials trust information found in user-generated content 50 percent more than information from traditional media sources and find user-generated content 35 percent more memorable than other sources....

Connecting to the emotion is absolutely a key to connecting with the customer. Beauty products, as an example, are not sold based on the technical compositions unless there is a link to the emotions of why those ingredients are important - attaching to the values and emotions of the consumer. Similarly - and unfortunately - there is also still a prominence of branding that is associated with connecting with another emotion - fear. Which moves me to tears but for other reasons.

Debra Walker's insight:

As this article points out, if you are not regularly checking the pulse of your customer, you may be finding that the service experience you are delivering is falling short of expectations.  There are so many ways of connecting with your current (and potential) customers that to fail to even attempt at making the connection means that you will reap what you deserve.

more...
Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, October 30, 2013 1:51 PM

5 Key insights from Disney:

 

- Show Clarity - Retailers often try to create a first-rate customer experience according to their pre-conceived notions instead of gathering customer feedback. But, the creation of the customer experience must begin by asking the right questions and identifying elements that hit home with consumers. These insights will allow you to use customer intelligence to design a customer experience strategy that reinforces your brand’s appealing qualities. 

 

- Amplify Strengths - After you have determined how the customer experience should feel to customers, then you must amplify the volume of your brand’s most desirable characteristics. By magnifying the traits that make your customers feel good about buying your products, you can better align the customer experience with customers’ needs. 

 

- Engage Employees - Employees play a key role in the execution of customer experiences. Like Disney, it’s important to empower your workforce to forge connections with customers around targeted dimensions of the customer experience, equipping them with insights about what draws consumers to your brand. 

 

- Outperform Expectations - Great brands go above and beyond for their customers.  In many cases, value-added products enhance the customer experience and play a role in differentiating the brand experience from the competition. 

 

- Create Connections - Disney knows how to build long-term, personal relationships with its customers. By understanding customers on a personal level, the brand has converted scores of satisfied customers into brand advocates.

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work | QUAC Design Thinking | Scoop.it

In one of my first jobs out of school, at a tender 25 years old, I found myself at a firm with no career ladder and a particularly demoralizing, tyrannical boss. Every morning that I walked from my house to that job, I was wretchedly miserable. My one glimmer of happiness was a smart, funny peer—let’s call her Sarah—who became my instant friend. We were in the same unhappy boat, at a similar level in the organization, and I seized on our lunch breaks as prime opportunities to vent my gloom and misfortune with someone who I knew would understand.

Complaining is problematic, but is it really what others think about the complainer that is important. Actually, it might be that the complainer ends up focusing on the negative and ends up in a morass of non-productivity. I used to just go back to my classroom and do what I felt was best. It did not make any difference whether the School manager agreed or not. Once I said my piece, I had better things to do.

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication | QUAC Design Thinking | Scoop.it

This is the age of instant communication, and a good example of it is how within the reach of a click, we can “skype-dive” into the room of someone else, living thousands of kilometers away. Businesses flourish everyday, coming out of networks of collaborators, scattered in many countries and geographies, permanently engaged in constant processes of communication, via Skype, Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook, mail.


Due to constant technological innovation, it is now extremely easy to speak to others,  regardless of where you are. Who doesn’t recognize this  scene: you are seating at your desk, having in front of you your laptop. To your right side is your iPhone, on the other side, your tablet. While you check your emails, you suddenly have John on Skype. Then Elise calls you on Facetime, whereas Christian demands your attention by using Whatsapp. How to properly communicate with all these people, demanding your personal attention to different issues, at precisely the same moment?
