INTRO

AWARENESS OR DEMAND?

You need more than new marketing tactics to survive. You need a new marketing philosophy.

As a marketer or business owner, you’ve been trained to think about raising awareness for the products and services you sell. You’ve read advertising books and attended online seminars that have told you how to position your products and write effective calls to action. You’ve advertised in magazines and newspapers. You’ve worked hard to make your company visible in the marketplace.

But did you ever stop to think how you could raise demand for your products and services?

PART 02

BRANDING IN THE NEW WORLD.

The term “brand” is a marketing relic.

It's so old, in fact, that it dates back to the thirteenth century when Italians added watermarks to the paper they created to authenticate the validity of a letter's sender. To most marketers, a brand is simply the logo, name, design, or symbol that identifies one company's goods from another's.

Today, however, “brand” also refers to the personality of a product or a company. There are personal brands, professional brands, commodity brands, even concept brands in the marketplace today. One thing's become clear though in a digital world—no brand is an island.

CONTENT IS CURRENCY

It’s entirely possible that the future of all media is branded.

I can imagine a world where TV commercials don't exist—where magazines are advertising-free. Instead, the content is underwritten by brands that understand the power and value of the content they create, own, share, and trade. (This is the single-greatest threat to today’s media companies, but that's a topic for another book.)

Once you shift your focus away from paying for access to an audience to one that views content as an asset, you will see a dramatic transformation in your business.

START SMALL. THINK BIG.

There's a content bubble and
it's going to burst—

—and I’m not the only one who thinks this."I do think we're in the early stages of a content bubble, which is being inflated by the idea that brands should be publishers," said Kyle Monson, content-strategy director at JWT, New York, in a recent Ad Age article.

The fact is, corporations shouldn't try to become media companies. You shouldn't decide that in addition to running a restaurant, manufacturing a product, or selling consulting services that you're going to become a media brand. The media industry is in flux. Even the best media companies in the world can't figure out how to be good, profitable publishers. You need to avoid the temptation to become a media company.
