Fanship friday: marketing innovation immensely social

  1. 1. Immensely Social Resources for Writers, Bloggers, Social Media Enthusiasts, and Lovers of Life, Art, & Fun Fanship Friday: Marketing Innovation Posted on October 18, 2013 1 Fanship Friday! Top O’ the Mornin’ to Ya! (Watch it, the Irish is coming out!) I Love a Good Dose of Innovation and Creativity! So, I was perusing the internet while listening to an audio this week and came across a picture that caught my eye. It wasn’t a cool filter or creative composition that grabbed my attention, rather a creative business concept! A pink truck to be more specific…
  2. 2. The pink is not what struck me either, though some great marketing there as it depicts the business, no it was the idea its self. (The picture and article are via Loren’s World, so definitely check out the link here for more: I was intrigued, because I love to see people who take a passion and implement it into business in an innovative and creative way. We have hot dog and ice cream trucks, even dog grooming trucks, so why not a fashion boutique! Le Fashion Truck’s creators, Stacey Steffe and Jeanine Romo, met at an arts and crafts market back in 2009. A friendship was built and passions combined into the pink truck you can now see parked around Los Angeles. Yes, it even has a dressing room! This brought me to a topic that, upon my remembrance, we haven’t discussed thoroughly enough for Fanship Friday. And that’s, Innovation! I remember, back in the day, being in a middle school drama group performing my classic “mime in a box” routine. My
  3. 3. director also had this awesome old, hollowed out TV set that we would climb inside and pretend we were on TV or “in the box.” While that was fun and all, “in the box” is the last place I want to be with my business! Get out of the BOX! We have talked about rules and concepts for branding and social media. We have even talked about following a trusted model from someone who is already successful, so you’re not trying to “reinvent the wheel.” I truly believe in the power of having a model, plan, and guidelines to follow. Let’s face it, without proven concepts, it is all just too overwhelming. Here’s the kicker… When you having a proven base to build from, it frees you to open up that box and put your own spin on things. Following a proven model, does not mean you can’t take those skills and apply some innovation and creativity! In fact, I would say it is completely necessary if you want to create a business and life you love! As the Dalai Lama said, “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” So, can we train ourselves to more creative and innovative? Yes, yes we can! Tony Buzan, a leading educational consultant and creator of the “mind mapping” technique, has some fantastic advice for us…
  4. 4. Think you’re not creative? Wrong! Everyone is creative! It’s about integration of the left and right brain hemispheres Practice Speed and Fluency Originality, that thinking “outside the box” Flexibility of thought, there is more than one way to get there Imagination and association, creating links between different ideas I enjoy mind mapping and have used the concept for everything from business ideas, like revamping this site, to personal development and what I’m seeking in life. To engage fans in this fast paced, digital age, it’s time to get innovative! So why not give mind mapping a go and watch as the ideas flow freely from that brain of yours like the Niagara Falls If you have enjoyed this post and found it helpful, don’t forget to “like & share!” Go out there and get Innovative! The world needs all that uniqueness only you can bring!
