Rejoicing New Year 2011

Well Happy New Year 2011.

This New Year is a special in many ways. Numerically, its a beginning of new decade. Secondly its 1/1/11 :)

Well I really don't know what to write today but I just had a small thought that could be interesting to share. If you have noticed, there are always few people who basically are pessimistic about the new year celebration. They express there views by saying things like, its just another day which means nothing.

But I think people tend to forget that the new year is not just a other day. It is a special one because on that very day, billions and billions of people make a commitment to themselves to start a fresh life. They promise to themselves to do things differently and in a better ways. They resolve their issues in relationships or careers or life and build a strength to move forward. Many people set their past issues aside and move forward.

And I think that when billions and billions of people make a commitment to change themselves and start a fresh, it makes a whole lot of difference in the world and in your surrounding thus making it an auspicious day of all.

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.

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

Fearful Consumer Market

Consumer market is something, I always feared. During my engineering days, I knew it was one area where I would not find myself working. I always feared the harsh competition of the market. I worried if ever, anything I made would sustain in the market. Or how people would react to it? You can say, I feared criticism and all the yap yap of group of people, who knows only how to suggest but not to act. Thus, I kept my interest into custom projects and not related to anything that a single consumer would use, rather it was something of community service. But with changing time, I knew I had to make a plunge into the ocean of consumer market and face the competition. "Be a man! Dude" That is what I would say to myself. I knew I couldn't swim, but I had to give it a try.  Journey into the consumer market is like that of 20000 Leagues Under The Sea . There are so many different kinds of creatures around to look and be fascinated. Some are small living in tiny groups. Some are
