Education business
No matter what your product is, you are
ultimately in the education business. Your
customers need to be constantly educated
about the many advantages of doing business
with you, trained to use your products more
effectively, and taught how to make never-
ending improvement in their lives.

Back to the basics
Yoshio Ishizaka
Executive VP, Toyota motor corporation
I have learned, based on my experience, that
everything is dominated by market. So
whenever I am struck with obstacles or
difficulties, I say to myself "listen to the market,
listen to the voice of the customer", that's the
fundamental essence of marketing.

Are you looking forward?
Shifts don’t simply happen by accident; they are
created with intention when technology and
innovation collide with and change our cultural
expectations and desires. We design the future by
interpreting how today’s story might unfold
tomorrow.
Are you looking forward?

4 Frivolous features
Apple’s competitors always want to talk
about pixels and price points. Apple responds
with a story that shifts the conversation to a
higher emotional place, and makes those
competitive arguments seem small and
unimportant.
Tim Halloran
marketing consultant

Chris Hedges
American journalist
In an age of images and entertainment,
in an age of instant emotional gratification,
we neither seek nor want honesty
or reality. Reality is complicated.
Reality is boring. We are incapable
or unwilling to handle its confusion.
Reality is boring5
Is that your product you are selling
This isn’t a new idea. There are many brands whose marketing activities or
positioning has them selling something other than (and usually larger than) their
product: Harley Davidson sells motorcycle riding, but it especially sells freedom and
independence. Most luxury brands sell something that comes down
to “being better than you are” (richer, better looking,
Stewart butter field

more attractive to those you find desirable,
etc.).

Meaningful innovation
If marketing is about making people
aware of the value you create, to do that,
you have to unlock the value in your
story. If innovation is about creating value,
to do that well, you must unlock the value
in the stories of the people you hope to
serve.
Bernadette Jiwa

Whatever you call it
That was what really kicked me into overdrive, into doing
what everyone nowadays talks about as growth, growth
hacking or growth marketing. In my mind it’s just internet
marketing using whatever channel you can to get whatever
output you want, and that’s how I paid for college and that’s
how I went from being a physicist to a Marketer -
transitioning to the darkside of the force.
Sam Altman
American entrepreneur

We don’t need better marketing.
We need better products, made
by trustworthy companies, led by
brave leaders, who can look us I
the eye and say, hand on heart,
‘This really will make your life
better because we put you first.’
Do we need better marketing ?9

An image of quality
It pays to give most products an image of
quality – a First Class ticket. This is particularly
true of products whose brand-name is visible to
your friends, like beer, cigarettes and
automobiles: products you ‘wear.’ If your
advertising looks cheap or shoddy, it will rub off
on your product. Who wants to be seen using
shoddy products?
David Ogilvy
father of Advertising, in Ogilvy on Advertising

Study those before you
You should know what marketing strategies have
worked in your industry, as well as the history of
companies in your space. It’s especially important to
understand how similar companies acquired
customers over time, and how unsuccessful
companies wasted their marketing dollars.
Justin Mares and Gabriel Weinberg,
respectively entrepreneur and
duckduckgo founder, in Traction

… but if you try to
delight everyone,
all the time, you'll
just make yourself
crazy. Or become
boring.

Genius marketer
Tribe
We either ignore your brand or we judge it, usually
with too little information. And when we judge it, we
judge it based on the actions of the loudest, meanest,
most selfish member of your tribe.

Selfish desires
When a company declares that its cause
is to become a global leader or to become a
household name or to make the best
products, those are selfish desires with no
intended value to anyone beyond the
company itself.
Simon Senek
British author and speaker, in Leaders Eat Last
14

Virality at its core
Look, virality at its core is asking someone spend
their social capital recommending or linking or
posting about you for free. You’re saying: Post about
me on Facebook. Tell your friends to watch my
video. Invite your business contacts to use this service.
The best way to get people to do this enormous
favor for you? Make it seem like it isn’t a favor.
Make it the kind of thing that is worth spreading
and, of course, conducive to spreading.
Ryan Holliday
American media startegist, in Growth Hacker
Marketing

Why stories matter
Stories are told and retold because
they contain wisdom. Stories are
effective teaching tools. They show how
context can mislead people to make
the wrong decisions. Stories illustrate
causal relationships that people hadn’t
recognized before and highlight
unexpected, resourceful ways in which
people have solved problems.
Chip Heath and Dan Heath,
respectively author and author, in Made to Stick

Brand memorizing
In short, the result revealed that we have no
memory of brands that don’t play an
integral part in the storyline of a program.

You don’t build a
brand anymore
It’s a different approach. Today, as a
marketer, our task isn’t necessarily to “build
a brand” or even to maintain a pre-existing
one. We’re better off building an army of
immensely loyal and passionate users. Which
is easier to track, define, and grow? Which of
these is real and which is simply an idea?
And when you get that right—a brand will
come naturally.
Ryan Holliday

Sweet spot
positioning
Around the world, then,
companies are looking for the
New Luxury "sweet spot" that
enables them to move off the
traditional demand curve and
acheiv high margins and high
volumes at the same time.

respectively American business consultant and author.

Marketing definition
The aim of marketing is to make selling superfluous.
The aim of marketing is to know and understand the
customer so well that the product or service fits him
and sells itself.
Peter Drucker
father of business consulting

Create a Story
For decades, businesses have created brand awareness by following four
rules—which no longer work. Old rules of brand awareness:
1. Make something for everyone.
2. Tell our story.
3. Attract customers.
4. Build brand awareness.
The brands that succeed today have flipped things around. New rules of
brand awareness:
1. Understand the customers' story.
2. Make something they want.
3. Give them a story to tell
4. Create brand affinity.
While we are scurrying around employing this tactic and that one in order
to get more people to notice us, we are overlooking the greatest
opportunity we have to drive the growth and success of our businesses.
Awareness of our products and services is not what spreads our stories. Our
stories spread when we are aware of our customers.
Bernadette Jiwa
brand strategy consultant and author, in Meaningful
22
Customer stories
Today, in an era when shops have
become showrooms and choice is real,
not simply a marketing illusion, our
customers are more than just passive
consumers of our products and services.
They are partners, co-creators, patrons,
advocates, evangelists, collaborators
and community members. People no
longer just want to buy things from us
without thinking—they want to become
invested in the businesses and brands
that they choose to support, and they
want those brands to be a part of the
stories they tell both to and about
themselves. This is a shift we can and
should nurture, not to mention an
opportunity we can leverage, not simply
to sell more stuff but to do meaningful
work that connects deeply with our
customers.
The clothing manufacturer Patagonia
employs forty-five full-time technicians
who complete about 30,000 repairs per
year. In the spring of 2015, the company
set off on a coast-to-coast road trip
across the U.S. in a biodiesel truck to
repair their customers' fired and well-
loved' clothing. Patagonia cares about
fixing a jacket that has traveled the
world with a customer because that act
aligns with their company values, and
just as important, it helps to deepen the
bond between customer and company.
23
Often the people who send garments in for
repair also send their stories about how that
piece of clothing has been with them through
thick and thin. The customers' stories fuel
Patagonia's story and have done so for over
four successful decades.
The team at Patagonia believe that 'one of
the most responsible things we can do as a
company is to make high-quality stuff that
lasts for years and can be repaired, so you
don't have to buy more of it.' They innovate
for and market to those customers who
believe what they believe. The customer is
their compass.

Rethinking traditional
marketing role
The traditional marketer’s job (…) is to get
the leads — to bring in potential customers.
It’s someone else’s job to figure out what to
do with them. But does that really make
sense anymore?
Ryan Holliday
American media startegist, in Growth Hacker
Marketing

Put on a show
Not because the ExactTarget product is better than ours,
because who even knows, and who even cares? Having the
best product has nothing to do with who wins. What matters
is who can put on a great show, who can create the biggest
spectacle, who can look huge and unstoppable and
invincible, and who is the best at bluster and hype.
Daniel Lyons
journalist and author, in Disrupted

Why is the question
It’s not why we
build, not what we
build that matters

Dopamine
Two chemicals—endorphins and
dopamine—are the reason that we
are driven to hunt, gather and
achieve. They make us feel good
when we find something we’re
looking for, build something we need
or accomplish our goals. These are
the chemicals of progress.

Robert G Allen Investor 1
  • 5. Back to the basics Yoshio Ishizaka Executive VP, Toyota motor corporation I have learned, based on my experience, that everything is dominated by market. So whenever I am struck with obstacles or difficulties, I say to myself "listen to the market, listen to the voice of the customer", that's the fundamental essence of marketing. 2 1

  • 7. bluesophy.com 4 Frivolous features Apple’s competitors always want to talk about pixels and price points. Apple responds with a story that shifts the conversation to a higher emotional place, and makes those competitive arguments seem small and unimportant. Tim Halloran marketing consultant
  • 8. bluesophy.com Chris Hedges American journalist In an age of images and entertainment, in an age of instant emotional gratification, we neither seek nor want honesty or reality. Reality is complicated. Reality is boring. We are incapable or unwilling to handle its confusion. Reality is boring5
  • 9. Is that your product you are selling This isn’t a new idea. There are many brands whose marketing activities or positioning has them selling something other than (and usually larger than) their product: Harley Davidson sells motorcycle riding, but it especially sells freedom and independence. Most luxury brands sell something that comes down to “being better than you are” (richer, better looking, Stewart butter field founder of Slack 6 more attractive to those you find desirable, etc.).
  • 10. bluesophy.com Meaningful innovation If marketing is about making people aware of the value you create, to do that, you have to unlock the value in your story.

  • 11. Whatever you call it That was what really kicked me into overdrive, into doing what everyone nowadays talks about as growth, growth hacking or growth marketing. In my mind it’s just internet marketing using whatever channel you can to get whatever output you want, and that’s how I paid for college and that’s how I went from being a physicist to a Marketer - transitioning to the darkside of the force. Sam Altman American entrepreneur 8
  • 12. Bernadette Jiwa brand strategy consultant and author, in Meaningful We don’t need better marketing. We need better products, made by trustworthy companies, led by brave leaders, who can look us I the eye and say, hand on heart, ‘This really will make your life better because we put you first.’ Do we need better marketing ?9
  • 13. bluesophy.com An image of quality It pays to give most products an image of quality – a First Class ticket. This is particularly true of products whose brand-name is visible to your friends, like beer, cigarettes and automobiles: products you ‘wear.’ If your advertising looks cheap or shoddy, it will rub off on your product. Who wants to be seen using shoddy products? David Ogilvy father of Advertising, in Ogilvy on Advertising 10
  • 14. bluesophy.com Study those before you You should know what marketing strategies have worked in your industry, as well as the history of companies in your space.

Justin Mares and Gabriel Weinberg, respectively entrepreneur and duckduckgo founder, in Traction 11

  • 17. bluesophy.com Selfish desires When a company declares that its cause is to become a global leader or to become a household name or to make the best products, those are selfish desires with no intended value to anyone beyond the company itself. Simon Senek British author and speaker, in Leaders Eat Last 14
  • 18. bluesophy.com Virality at its core Look, virality at its core is asking someone spend their social capital recommending or linking or posting about you for free. You’re saying: Post about me on Facebook. Tell your friends to watch my video. Invite your business contacts to use this service. The best way to get people to do this enormous favor for you? Make it seem like it isn’t a favor. Make it the kind of thing that is worth spreading and, of course, conducive to spreading. Ryan Holliday American media startegist, in Growth Hacker Marketing 15
  • 19. bluesophy.com Why stories matter Stories are told and retold because they contain wisdom. Stories are effective teaching tools.

Stories illustrate causal relationships that people hadn’t recognized before and highlight unexpected, resourceful ways in which people have solved problems. Chip Heath and Dan Heath, respectively author and author, in Made to Stick 16

  • 21. bluesophy.com Brand memorizing In short, the result revealed that we have no memory of brands that don’t play an integral part in the storyline of a program. Martin Lindstrom author, branding expert and consultant in neuro- marketing, in Buyology 17
  • 22. bluesophy.com You don’t build a brand anymore It’s a different approach. Today, as a marketer, our task isn’t necessarily to “build a brand” or even to maintain a pre-existing one. We’re better off building an army of immensely loyal and passionate users. Which is easier to track, define, and grow? Which of these is real and which is simply an idea? And when you get that right—a brand will come naturally. Ryan Holliday American media startegist, in Growth Hacker Marketing 18

  • 25. Marketing definition The aim of marketing is to make selling superfluous. The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service fits him and sells itself. Peter Drucker father of business consulting 21
  • 26. bluesophy.com Create a Story For decades, businesses have created brand awareness by following four rules—which no longer work. Old rules of brand awareness: 1. Make something for everyone. 2. Tell our story. 3. Attract customers. 4. Build brand awareness. The brands that succeed today have flipped things around. New rules of brand awareness: 1. Understand the customers' story. 2. Make something they want. 3. Give them a story to tell 4. Create brand affinity. While we are scurrying around employing this tactic and that one in order to get more people to notice us, we are overlooking the greatest opportunity we have to drive the growth and success of our businesses. Awareness of our products and services is not what spreads our stories. Our stories spread when we are aware of our customers. Bernadette Jiwa brand strategy consultant and author, in Meaningful 22
  • 27. Customer stories Today, in an era when shops have become showrooms and choice is real, not simply a marketing illusion, our customers are more than just passive consumers of our products and services. They are partners, co-creators, patrons, advocates, evangelists, collaborators and community members. People no longer just want to buy things from us without thinking—they want to become invested in the businesses and brands that they choose to support, and they want those brands to be a part of the stories they tell both to and about themselves. This is a shift we can and should nurture, not to mention an opportunity we can leverage, not simply to sell more stuff but to do meaningful work that connects deeply with our customers. The clothing manufacturer Patagonia employs forty-five full-time technicians who complete about 30,000 repairs per year. In the spring of 2015, the company set off on a coast-to-coast road trip across the U.S. in a biodiesel truck to repair their customers' fired and well- loved' clothing. Patagonia cares about fixing a jacket that has traveled the world with a customer because that act aligns with their company values, and just as important, it helps to deepen the bond between customer and company. 23
  • 28. Often the people who send garments in for repair also send their stories about how that piece of clothing has been with them through thick and thin. The customers' stories fuel Patagonia's story and have done so for over four successful decades. The team at Patagonia believe that 'one of the most responsible things we can do as a company is to make high-quality stuff that lasts for years and can be repaired, so you don't have to buy more of it.' They innovate for and market to those customers who believe what they believe. The customer is their compass. Bernadette Jiwa brand strategy consultant and author, in Meaningful Customer stories (ctd.)
  • 29. bluesophy.com Rethinking traditional marketing role The traditional marketer’s job (…) is to get the leads — to bring in potential customers. It’s someone else’s job to figure out what to do with them. But does that really make sense anymore? Ryan Holliday American media startegist, in Growth Hacker Marketing 24
  • 30. bluesophy.com Put on a show Not because the ExactTarget product is better than ours, because who even knows, and who even cares? Having the best product has nothing to do with who wins. What matters is who can put on a great show, who can create the biggest spectacle, who can look huge and unstoppable and invincible, and who is the best at bluster and hype. Daniel Lyons journalist and author, in Disrupted 25
  • 31. bluesophy.com Why is the question It’s not why we build, not what we build that matters Bernadette Jiwa brand strategy consultant and author, in Meaningful 26
  • 32. bluesophy.com Dopamine Two chemicals—endorphins and dopamine—are the reason that we are driven to hunt, gather and achieve. They make us feel good when we find something we’re looking for, build something we need or accomplish our goals. These are the chemicals of progress. Simon Senek British author and speaker, in Leaders Eat Last 27
