  • I found it on Amazon after all. Too many books with the word Personality in the title. It is available for Kindle as well which is what I did. Recommend the Kindle for anyone who moves around a lot. I will review it on my blog in the next week or so.

    Why You Should Read "Personality Not Included" Why You Should Read "Personality Not Included" Presentation Transcript

    • Why Your Brand Needs A Personality A Visual Introduction To An Actually Useful Marketing Book www.readpni.com
    • This is This is me. one of those Cirque du Soleil guys (not me).
    • I work at a marketing agency called Ogilvy. We have trendy chairs.
    • My day job is helping clients to stand out in a crowded space.
    • This is the story of my book.
    • It is about why your business needs a personality.
    • It is also why people love using this.
    • Or shopping here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/littlerottenrobin/2892647257/
    • It’s why they spend $800 on one of these.
    • And what makes people (and ducks) who work here … http://www.flickr.com/photos/yodelanecdotal/1449868160/
    • Much happier than people who work here.
    • Personality is the real secret to succeeding in the new business world.
    • To understand why, let’s look at the 3 Big Myths of marketing today.
    • #1 Your Bottom Line Is About Selling.
    • False! Anyone can sell anything … in the short term. Image of Jesus on Grilled Cheese sandwich, sold on eBay for $28,000
    • The real challenge is to sell something people can’t help talking about. The “legendary notebook of Picasso and Hemingway” …
    • People ignore #2 marketing messages
    • Wrong! They only ignore irrelevant messages you are randomly firing at them.
    • But they love useful marketing that answers a question or offers a solution.
    • #3 Having something great to is all that sell … matters.
    • #3 … is Having only half something of your great to battle! sell …
    • A great product … is only the first step.
    • Consumers want Authenticity P.S. - Flowers are authentic.
    • And they have the power to demand it.
    • Being faceless doesn’t work … anymore.
    • Unfortunately, most companies are faceless because they hide their personality. Is this you?
    • For example, many create an “Employee Silencing Policy” to intentionally keep their best voices silent.
    • Or focus too much on how people should use a logo … This is what typical brand guidelines look like.
    • Instead of letting others “own” your brand and inspiring them to believe in it (something Obama knew).
    • Doing this takes more than a great logo, or a shiny new blog, or a viral video or having a Facebook group.
    • Those are not the answer, they’re just tools.
    • Personality is the answer. Want to know how your brand can get one?
    • First, you’ll need a definition … “ Personality is the unique, authentic, and talkable soul of your brand that people can get passionate about.” (pûr'sə-nāl'ĭ-tē)
    • So how do you use yours? There are six steps.
    • Help your #1 employees be individuals instead of faceless people.
    • That’s Jared #2 from Subway. Embrace your accidental spokespeople.
    • Use the “UAT” Filter #3 Is it Unique? Is it Authentic? Is it Talkable? Personality
    • Craft a #4 backstory people can believe.
    • Conquer the #5 4 fear-based barriers to personality. 1. Success – ”What we’re doing is already working.” 2. Uncertainty – ”We don’t know what will happen.” 3. Tradition – ”We have always done it this way.” 4. Precedent – ”No one else is doing it that way.”
    • #6 Use your personality moments. This bank has its own café to connect with their customers.
    • Those six steps are explained in the first six chapters of the book. Then comes Part II…
    • Part II has action guides to help you implement every idea from Part I.
    • There are “tabs” so you can easily go from a chapter to an action guide.
    • When you put it all together, what makes this book different is that it’s Entertaining + Useful
    • Entertaining because there are over 100 real life examples:
    • Like the story of the world’s best restaurant on the coast of Spain, which is revered despite being closed 6 months out of the year.
    • Or the tale of a small shop owner in Austin who decided to open his own museum.
    • Or how an airline is redefining the US domestic flight experience.
    • And how the death of Superman killed the comic book industry.
    • These examples (and dozens more) tell the story of why personality matters.
    • And it is useful because you can read it quickly and put the ideas to work for your business. Read Page To Find Out How
    • The point is, this is not a book that will gather dust on your bookshelf.
    • Besides me, lots of others will also tell you this book is worth your time … Selected from 1500 entries as 1 of the Best Business Books Of 2008. “A must-read social business book.” And hundreds more positive reviews from around the world …
    • There are also a few translated versions available … COMING 2009: Spanish Russian Thai Polish Chinese Taiwanese
    • Most importantly, businesses of all sizes are actively using personality …
    • What have they all discovered? Personality Matters.
    • Are you ready to see what personality could do for your business? Download An Exclusive Sample Chapter: www.personalitynotincluded.com/excerpt
