Here is a good representation of the types of tools available for you to use. Most are free, some are paid.
The web used to be about building the biggest web site you could and driving customers to your web site. Web 2.0 has created communities. Brands must now go to your customers rather than expecting them all to come to you.
I don’t think the answer is to push your message across the new media vehicles
The Traditional Funnel Not so long ago, brands were big. Consumers were small. Agencies controlled the sales funnel: a linear process, with defined steps and one way communications. We believe this model is too linear for today’s marketing cycle.
The Pinball Effect We like the pinball machine analogy. Customers still come in at the top, but there is no telling when they will come out and how many touch points with the brand they will have. Brands no longer control the content, the path or pace of a customer in the buying cycle: one way communication has become a dialogue. The Bolin model seeks to influence this conversation by energizing connectivity between marketing disciplines, touch points and brands.
we’re no longer talk TO our audience but rather talking WITH them that our goal is no longer to INTERUPT but rather to ENGAGE, talking to everyone is much less effective than talking one to one “tried and true” ways of the past give way to a mindset of “test and learn,” and finally, When it comes to media spending, efficiency is way less important than effectiveness.
This attitude combined with new web technologies has created a new environment
Sentiment or Perception
For many brands, it may take a year just to create the platforms. Results come the following year.,
We create a list of tactics and number them accordingly. We plot the tactics on a prioritization matrix to understand their impact vs burden We then circle groups of tactics that address specific strategies. This helps us understand which tactics to pursue and which to leave off.
For Rubbermaid, we get a 5x lift in campaign engagement by extending the experience from the micro site to other media vehicles like Facebook.
It’s the conent

• One of the reasons that I prefer the Sterilite containers over glass or plaster canisters is because they are
plastic which means I won’t risk nicking the jar or breaking it. I also like how they are the same size because
most of the things I have come in the same size bag from the store. If the canister is too small then I have
leftovers which mean two things to manage instead of one. I also love the fact that they are clear because then
I know what I am grabbing before I ever touch it and I know what I’m running low of before I head out to the
• I LOVE MY TUPPERWARE!!! I think I would have to say that Tupperware has been around for as long as I
have or even longer. I remember as a child we always had Tupperware in our house. The bowls were pale
pastel colors with a clear lid. Do you remember those? They also used to be clear with a clear lid. I have a
picture of me at my 2nd birthday when my mother let me lick the batter from the bowl that she used to make the
cake for me. I was covered in chocolate, and in my hands was the ever famous "Tupperware Wonderlier®
Bowl"(the largest one). I'm not sure if it was called the "Wonderlier® Bowl" at that time though.
• Food containers like Tupperware and Rubbermaid are a big part of my day. We have lots of leftovers and are
on a budget. We don’t like to waste food.
• I think these containers which I use to store pasta are great! The price was very good, they are air tight and I
am very satisfied with them.
• The only thing I look for in a container is versatilty. I need something that is going to be able to hold multiple
kinds of food and not juist specialty containers.
• I’ve tried the disposable containers to try and save money but learned after leaks and spoiled food that I should
just stick with my tried and true Tupperware.
