Brands and Business Models

If a big chunk of Coke, Microsoft and Apples’ value is based on the brand itself… why do so many entrepreneurs spend so much time growing their infrastructure (staff, buildings, equiptment)? Look at it this way… If you are growing a business to one day sell it so you can sit on the beach drinking Pina Colada’s (and get caught in the rain), then the elements you should really focus on developing are the sales processes, the value your services offer, and how it’s all perceived by the public… No-one really gives a rats about the stuff ‘behind-the-scenes’ !! As

In Prince Of Print Has Passed

I woke up this morning and in typical fashion jumped onto bloglines to keep abreast of my latest RSS feeds…and what I read was incredibly sad. The world greatest copywriter, Gary Halbert, passed away last night in his sleep. For those of you unfamiliar with Gary, he has been termed ‘The Prince of Print’ and is regarded as the worlds best copywriter… His teaching style was very, shall I say, unorthodox and in your face…. but none the less, his message was GOLD. Gary’s death will leave a big void in the marketing community for years to come. If you

All New Keyword Research Tools
