  • NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • WHY? NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • Because the mathematics of collaboration is nothing less than MAGIC. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • DISCIPLINE 3: INNOVATE NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • Execution— not strategy—is where the rubber meets the road. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • CREATIVITY IS WHAT GIVES BRANDS THEIR TRACTION IN THE MARKETPLACE. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • Why do companies have so much trouble with creativity? Because creativity is right-brained, and strategy is left-brained. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • A B C D STRATEGIC THINKING NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • Z V D Q CREATIVE THINKING NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • THE REASON THE BEATLES WERE WILDLY SUCCESSFUL IS BECAUSE “THEY NEVER DID THE SAME THING ONCE.” NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • QUESTION: How do you know when an idea is innovative? NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • ANSWER: NEUTRONLLC.COM WHEN IT SCARES THE HELL OUT OF EVERYBODY.
  • TOO PREDICTABLE NO SURPRISE NOTHING NEW NEUTRONLLC.COM = = = NO SURPRISE NOTHING NEW NO VALUE
  • To begin with, the brand needs a NEUTRONLLC.COM stand-out name.

  • For products that sell at retail, the package NEUTRONLLC.COM is often the best and last chance to make a sale.
  • The hardest-working packages follow a natural reading sequence. THE SHOPPER : 1 2 Asks “What is it?” 3 Wonders “Why should I care?” 4 Wants to be persuaded 5 NEUTRONLLC.COM Notices the package Needs proof
  • By presenting information to match this sequence, a package can sell the product more effectively. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • If you communicate with your customers ONLINE , your website needs to follow a SIMILAR reading sequence, one that supplies users with ONLY the information they need, instead of trying to squeeze EVERYTHING onto the home page LIKE THIS and making your users do ALL the work, which will undoubtedly cause them to LEAVE, when all you really have to do is ask yourself this SIMPLE QUESTION : NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • NEUTRONLLC.COM Does our website look f at in this dress?
  • Too many websites are bloated with irrelevant information. NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • WHY? NEUTRONLLC.COM

  • QUESTION: How can you test your most creative ideas BEFORE they get to market? NEUTRONLLC.COM
  • HINT: NEUTRONLLC.COM Not with large quantitative studies or focus groups.
  • QUANTITATIVE STUDIES BURY THE PROBLEM IN HEAPS OF UNHELPFUL DATA. NEUTRONLLC.COM
