RGB of Marketing Analytics

Your Analysis Report is your product, just like any other kinds of commodities that is available in the market. So, you can actually sell it, but how are you going to market it? Its a big question that I have been asking my selves for some time. How in Gods name would you do it?

In search of answer, I have been going through some Marketing Books, then I stumbled upon one such book called "Everything They Have told you About Marketing is Wrong" by Ron Shevlin

Well, it is a very unconventional Books, hitting at the target rather than beating around the bushes. Its starts with debunking all the rules starting with 4P's of marketing, replacing it with the 3P's.

I have my own thought and I call it RGBTM of Marketing. Why RGB? Well RGB is fundamental of any colors, so obviously RGB of Marketing means fundamentals and not complexity.

Well, so let me put down the things that I have finally thought off, on how to start on Marketing your analysis or go on making one. Let me go step by step :

1. Forget about it.

Forget the fact that you have to sell or forget the fact that you are making a product in the very first place. Why? Trust me.

2. Concentrate on the problem. 

Try to figure out the problem that you are solving from top to bottom. And solve it purely for the sake of solving it.

3. Respect it.

Once your product solves the problem, respect it and wrap it properly but don't over do it. Keep it simple.

4. Remember it.

Remember it. Remember What?? Good, so you have forgotten it. Well, remember the very thing that I told to forget in the first place. :-) Remember that you need to demonstrate your product in the right market. For that, learn the language people understand. 

5. Give your best.

No comment on this step. It is a must for any marketer or anyone. 

So, how did I go there? Yup, it sounds very very simple, but actually it isn't. There are human factor and other unknown variables which I haven't considered. I don't know if all that is even necessary? Because ultimately, your product speaks more that you. If it can't perform then its no use. So PISS, meaning Put It Simple you Stupid.

So much for my own rules and regulation. If it was so EASY then everyone would have sold by now.

Well, you happen to sell things by following the above rules, then don't forget to mention me and Offcourse, I would be glad if you dropped some part of it in my account. :-) U know what I mean.

By the way, I wasn't marketing the above book so don't shout at me, you don't have to read it.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Waiting for the right bus

Everyday, after college I would walk home with my friends. Wandering around and talking about future. What will we do? How will we be? How much will we change? Ideas! Ambitions! Life!!!

Everything always tumbled down to a cup of tea at a near by shop, where we were regular visitors. A sip of tea and bunch of thought provoking questions and contradictions. All intelligent and weird minds searching for the answer to a common question - the meaning of life. Trying to find that right path towards salvation. Complete Consciousness!!

Now and then we would simply get lost within ourselves, in the midst of the crowd. Thoughts wandering far beyond the time frame. Everyone building their life on their own dimensions. Confident. Lost. But hopeful.

Like some lost sailors on a boat, every one of us would be looking at different directions hoping to see some signs of calling. But then we wouldn't find any. "What are we searching for ?", would be one damning question in every one'…
