        • User background knowledge gathering
      © Unibet Group plc 2011 67 Slides
      • Main rule: You ‘information filter’ by trust
      • You reference your previous experiences
      • You ask friends
      • If you have no one to ask directly, you go to:
        • Review sites

      • I’ve done it, now I hope its worth it.
      • I spent the money, I’d better love this!
      • I Love this, I want to reinforce my decision and:
        • Tell my friends
        • Write a review
        • Help others & contribute on a forum

        • Popular interest in your type of product or service
      67 Slides
      • You get no traffic if users don’t how to describe you
      • Can you say what it is in 3 words or less?

    • Navigation architecture © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 2: Get on the starting line 67 Slides
      • You have your ‘navigation keywords’ sorted out. I.e. ‘tough blender’
      • Are you prominent where users navigate the web i.e. a search engine?
      © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 2: Get on the starting line 67 Slides
      • Strange… Where is Blendtec.com?
      • The other bases are covered, but you can’t navigate to their own site easily.
      Google.com search © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 2: Get on the starting line 67 Slides
    • So they can’t do their own pitch… Remember – search engines still rule when it comes to capturing users at the point of highest commercial intent. Part 2: Get on the starting line 67 Slides © Unibet Group plc 2011
      • You have done your homework:
      • You have your best online touch points set up
      • Your site is SEO’d
      • Positive reviews on forums / review sites
      • Facebook page set up: http://www.facebook.com/BlendTec
      © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 2: Get on the starting line 67 Slides
    • © Unibet Group plc 2011 There are a lot of places to navigate from 67 Slides
    • That’s a lot of navigation touch points! My favourite:
      • Google / Bing
      • Any place where trusted ‘buying’ information about you can be shared – and then get it visible on search engines!

    • Part 3
      • Targeting resource for maximum ROI
      67 Slides © Unibet Group plc 2011

      67 Slides © Unibet Group plc 2011
      • Put your money into the product/service – not the marketing
      • Let online ‘word of mouth recommendation’ take hold
      • Help propagate this sharing
      • Make sure its easy for users to navigate to you

    • We are a small English watchmaker with a simple aim ... we want to put premium quality watches within the reach of everyone. To achieve this we have inverted the usual business model used by brands such as Breitling, Tag Heuer and Omega. The manufacturing costs of our watches may be similar to theirs but that’s where comparisons end. Our marketing spend as a percentage of the watch price is a fraction of our competitors and we may not, therefore, reach as many people as quickly as our competitors, but when we do we seem to delight more often than not   - and if you do see Brad Pitt wearing a Christopher Ward watch at least you'll have the satisfaction of knowing he paid for it himself! Our passionate belief in “honest pricing” means that the selling price of a Christopher Ward watch is between 2 and 3 times the base manufacturing price. The luxury watch industry average is nearer 10 times and we have an example of a well known watch that retails for 30 times the manufacturing cost. © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 3: Targeting resource for maximum ROI 67 Slides
      • My friend talked about them

      • At Zoho, we look at cloud economics in 3 dimensions:
      • The cost of developing applications  
      • The cost of insfrastructure to deliver the applications
      • The cost of marketing and sales, of which (b) and (c) are particularly important.
      • These three factors, particularly (b) and (c) explain why we are able to price our services so affordably.
      • Zoho CRM is the classic example: we charge $15 per user per month for the CRM ($12) + Mail ($3) package, while Salesforce prices their comparable edition at $65 per user per month.
      • We believe they are fundamentally inefficient in all 3 dimensions, and that inefficiency becomes a tax on the customer. I want to emphasize that we are profitable at our price point, there are no gimmicks here. Contrast that to what Salesforce chooses to do
      © Unibet Group plc 2011 Part 3: Targeting resource for maximum ROI 67 Slides
      • I use Zoho CRM
      • From my research:
      • Its cheaper than Salesforce
      • More flexible than Salesforce
      • There are more interoperable services than Salesforce
      • They didn’t have to do an expensive sales pitch on me. They just built a better tool kit!
