  63. 67. What are new ideas? <ul><li>A new idea is first condemned as ridiculous and then dismissed as trivial, until finally, it becomes what everybody knows. </li></ul><ul><li>William James (1842-1910) American philosopher and psychologist. </li></ul><ul><li>Ideas are a capital that bears interest only in the hands of talent. </li></ul><ul><li>Antoine Rivarol (1753-1801) French writer and epigrammatist. </li></ul><ul><li>The wise only possess ideas; the greater part of mankind are possessed by them. </li></ul><ul><li>Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) British poet, philosopher. </li></ul><ul><li>All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea. </li></ul><ul><li>Napoleon Hill (1883-1970) American speaker and motivational writer. </li></ul>
  64. 68.

  65. 69. So should we.
  66. 70. Loosen the mind. LATERAL THINKING QUIZ <ul><li>In a small town there are four similar size shoe shops that sell a similar line of shoes. Yet one shop loses three times as many shoes to theft as each of the other shops. Why and how did they fix the problem?  </li></ul><ul><li>During the Californian gold rush a young entrepreneur went to California to sell tents to the miners. He thought there would be good market from the thousands of people who flocked to dig for gold. Unfortunately the weather was so warm that the miners slept in the open and there was little demand for his tents. What did he do? </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  67. 71. Loosen the mind. LATERAL THINKING QUIZ <ul><li>A woman buys coconuts at £5 per dozen and sells them at £3 per dozen. Because of this she becomes a millionaire.

He knows that when he gets there he will die. Why is this? </li></ul>
  68. 72. How can we help the creation of new ideas? <ul><li>We realise that every idea has value . </li></ul><ul><li>We make sure we are opportunity-taking. </li></ul><ul><li>We become opportunity spotters. </li></ul><ul><li>We ‘imagineer’ new ideas. Like Walt Disney did. </li></ul><ul><li>We think of the world in the terms of ‘future now.’ </li></ul><ul><li>We have a strategic approach to opportunity spotting. </li></ul><ul><li>We grab all opportunities. </li></ul><ul><li>We realise that ideas often evolve from knowledge and learning. The more informed we are, the more we can ‘see’. </li></ul><ul><li>Ideas bring uncertainty. Taking opportunities means taking risks. Nothing is guaranteed. </li></ul><ul><li>Douglas Miller – great guy – definitely worth a read. </li></ul>
  69. 73. How can we become opportunity spotters ? <ul><li>We can ask questions like: </li></ul><ul><li>Why don’t we do it that way? </li></ul><ul><li>I wonder what would happen if… </li></ul><ul><li>We can: </li></ul><ul><li>Always suggest possibilities to ourselves. </li></ul><ul><li>Always be listening to people. </li></ul><ul><li>Create positive habitats for the mind. </li></ul><ul><li>When do you see opportunities? </li></ul>

  76. 81. Who didn’t like telling them about their special idea?
  77. 82. Who made up a new idea so they didn’t have to share their special idea?
  78. 83. Realize that great ideas are many and often - it’s the action you take to make them happen and the timing of the opportiunity that makes the difference.
  79. 84. Think about these ideas. <ul><li>A different algorithm for searches based on links and relevance aligning with in university research papers. </li></ul><ul><li>Looking at selling second hand books in a different way. </li></ul><ul><li>Never knowingly being undersold. </li></ul><ul><li>Bringing innovation to different industries. </li></ul><ul><li>A way of auctioning things online. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognising design was all important. </li></ul><ul><li>Creating sportswear at cost effective prices. </li></ul><ul><li>Investing in the right things at the right times. </li></ul><ul><li>Carbonating water with caramel and flavourings. </li></ul><ul><li>Making running a fast food outlet – very easy indeed. </li></ul>

  88. 94. New ideas. Chocolate / Strawberry Ideas <ul><li>Chocolate (or strawberry) ideas are different – they are the evolution of vanilla. </li></ul><ul><li>Not a huge leap – but a departure from the norm. </li></ul><ul><li>They need a connection to exist. </li></ul><ul><li>We can take like and like and transfer. </li></ul><ul><li>Ask: </li></ul><ul><li>How did other people solve their version of the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Observe different industries as often they share the same end goals as your idea. </li></ul><ul><li>Link between like and like. </li></ul><ul><li>The brilliance comes from the use of an old idea in a new place / situation. </li></ul>

  137. 146. Some classic mistakes made <ul><li>Assume 'everyone will want this'. Everyone won't. Target everyone and you end up targeting no one - Indentify your target customer then get close to them. </li></ul><ul><li>Can't sell, won't sell. There is no business without sales. Consider joining forces with a partner who's sales driven - but don't shy away from it. </li></ul><ul><li>Lose focus. Resist diversifying too early, no matter how alluring the opportunity. Instead, establish a healthy customer base from the products you have spent months researching and refining before branching out and diluting your core strengths. Stick to your plan. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't tell everyone you can about your idea for fear it'll get nicked. The more people know what you're doing, the more useful contacts friends will refer you to. You shouldn't fear idea-nicking. If your business is any good, other people will always copy. </li></ul>
  138. 147. Some classic mistakes made <ul><li>Think big but don't think about scale. Got ambitious growth plans? Great, but be clear and realistic about how you're going to get there, and when. Think about infrastructure and choose IT systems, suppliers and distribution channels that can scale with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't user-test. Test everything. Make sure your target customers actually like the way it looks and works, and find out how much they'd pay for it. Your family and friends are not customers, by the way: they'll sugar-coat. You need people you don't know. Trust me. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't set targets. Having a vision focuses your efforts and creates structure. Your ambitions may well change but having a starting point helps immensely. </li></ul><ul><li>Agonise over  small things. Prioritise ruthlessly. Look at how many sales a piece of work is likely to bring in, and allocate your time and resources accordingly. </li></ul>

  161. 174. And these...?
  162. 175. Why does this work so well?
  163. 176. Guerrilla Marketing Principle - Patience Strategy - Targeted Tactic – Using Psychology
  164. 177. Target demographic – is NOT everyone <ul><li>Remember the old 80 / 20 rule. </li></ul><ul><li>80% of your money will come from 20% of your customers / products / services. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t quote me on it – as gets down to about 30 / 70 with some web companies but its a good rule of thumb. </li></ul><ul><li>Ok think about that with your own business. </li></ul><ul><li>And then think about Guerrilla Marketing! </li></ul>
  165. 178. Guerrilla marketing (GM) <ul><li>What is the most important quality for a GM? </li></ul><ul><li>According to the fore father (Jay Conan Livingston) it is </li></ul><ul><li>Patience….. </li></ul><ul><li>Why? </li></ul><ul><li>From total apathy to buying the product or service it takes 9 times… </li></ul><ul><li>The bad news is for every 3 times, your customer on average only listens only once. </li></ul><ul><li>Marketing could take up to 27 interactions. </li></ul>
  166. 179. If we are having to connect with someone many times, we MUST narrow down the number of people.
  167. 180. Who is your target demographic? So question for you!
  168. 181. <ul><li>Who is your target demographic? </li></ul><ul><li>Have a think – or if you have been trading for a while go look at your figures. </li></ul><ul><li>Most people say – it’s everyone. </li></ul><ul><li>This is nonsense – look for your ideal customer – the one who loves you – comes back and BUYS from you. </li></ul><ul><li>Not the lookers – the buyers. </li></ul><ul><li>If B2B it could be type of businesses and buyers. </li></ul>So who is yours?
  169. 182. Relationship Marketing The R in Great Marketing Relationships, not only with your client’s potential customers but with the press as well.
  170. 183. Relationship Marketing Not just with your market place, but with your real customers, the press and everyone else.
  171. 184. When you get the right customers Then you can really make a difference. With their “Life Time Value”.
  172. 185. Example of Life Time Value. <ul><li>My hair – needs doing. </li></ul><ul><li>You can see that – right  </li></ul><ul><li>It costs me around £80 a go </li></ul><ul><li>6 times a year </li></ul><ul><li>Suddenly I am worth £500 a year (just about) </li></ul><ul><li>How long will I stay with my hairdresser? </li></ul><ul><li>3 – 5 years? </li></ul><ul><li>So am I worth getting to know? </li></ul><ul><li>I am worth some £2500. </li></ul>
  173. 187. So work out your customers LTV <ul><li>Or it might be just the Annual Time Value. </li></ul><ul><li>And if they only buy from you once ever. </li></ul><ul><li>Then perhaps look at this. </li></ul><ul><li>Get a feel for perhaps introducing in another product or service. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you have an upsell or a cross sell. </li></ul><ul><li>As it could cost you £5 – £500 to get the customer to have that meeting with you. </li></ul><ul><li>Or make that initial purchase. </li></ul><ul><li>Letting them go now is bad Relationship Marketing. And we want you to BE GREAT. </li></ul>
  174. 188. What is the life time value of your customer? So question for you!
  175. 189. Relationship Marketing Not just with your potential customers. But also with the press.
  176. 190. The press <ul><li>If you want your company to be noticed by your customers a great way is to get into the press. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a think about what you like to read. </li></ul><ul><li>Seriously – take a pause and think about it. </li></ul><ul><li>Now think about where do you hear about stuff? </li></ul><ul><li>It’s different isn't it. </li></ul><ul><li>Of course, as we have some many new ways of getting our media. </li></ul><ul><li>So is it just the local rag you want to get into? </li></ul><ul><li>I would doubt it </li></ul>
  177. 191. The press <ul><li>24 out of 25 of the major world papers are in decline. And we all know why... </li></ul><ul><li>But does this mean it’s not a good time to go for the press? </li></ul><ul><li>All depends on your demographic! </li></ul><ul><li>So first ask them – go back to your drawing and say – what do you do? </li></ul><ul><li>Even after you do that – no matter what they answer – getting exposure in any media when you don’t pay for it is a simple equation. </li></ul>
  178. 192. The press equation <ul><li>The known and the unknown = coverage. </li></ul><ul><li>Or emotion plus emotion = exposure. </li></ul><ul><li>You could bring in gossip and secrets here as well. </li></ul><ul><li>But basically </li></ul><ul><li>You can use all emotions you have </li></ul><ul><li>Unashamedly </li></ul><ul><li>And this will get you into the press. </li></ul><ul><li>In time.... </li></ul><ul><li>As long as you do it right. </li></ul>

  182. 196. Who runs the show? <ul><li>How many links could you get? </li></ul><ul><li>This is also about SEO.... </li></ul><ul><li>Which is what we talk about next. </li></ul><ul><li>But have a think how many websites can you get on? </li></ul><ul><li>Think about their different values. </li></ul><ul><li>Their different page rank values for SEO. </li></ul><ul><li>Online PR is no longer just about who reads it – it’s about how this affects your SEO. </li></ul><ul><li>And your ‘online reputation’ and your social graph.

  210. 232. Why do I think twitter is soooo important? <ul><li>Twitter is not a social network. While Facebook is the digital equivalent to your online residence,  Twitter is your window to relevance , a network where individuals connect through fleeting interactions yet rooted in context and interaction.  How we embrace and invest our persona in this paradigm says more about the future of digital culture and ourselves than we might imagine. And, it’s only increasing in its societal prevalence.(Brian Solis 2010) </li></ul><ul><li>More than 100 million Tweets fly across Twitter every day. </li></ul><ul><li>The lifespan of a ReTweet is roughly one hour. </li></ul><ul><li>Over 175 million people have created a micro presence on Twitter, with that number expected to grow to 200 million by the end of the year. </li></ul>
  211. 233. Advanced thinking with twitter. <ul><li>Remember to tweet first – and make them interesting. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to and find out what’s current / digged. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to – funny links and great pages. </li></ul><ul><li>You can go on BBC – especially good for specialists. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to brainy quotes – and get quotes of the day. </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on your demographic. Inspiration quotes are very hot. </li></ul><ul><li>Bring in emotion – bring in personal stuff </li></ul><ul><li>About every 7 tweets with links – do one personal one. </li></ul><ul><li>Show your wishes and your dreams and BE VUNERABLE. It is compelling.   </li></ul>
