FIND CREATIVE EXPRESSION TO YOUR DATA — The Nuance of Numbers

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Nov 26, 2018 11:54:05 AM

 

 

“Whenever a man can get hold of numbers, they are invaluable: if correct, they assist in informing his own mind, but they are still more useful in deluding the minds of others. Numbers are the masters of the weak, but the slaves of the strong.”
Charles Babbage, Passages from the Life of a Philosopher

Socialize Your Trade Shows To Create Novel Opportunities

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Apr 9, 2018 3:37:19 PM

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” 

 

Think about this for a moment. 

Everyday, you spend more time influencing, persuading, or convincing other people to part with their resources, or to carve out a different path for your brand journey. You are either pitching new marketing ideas in your meetings — possible new events for focused user groups, or, why you should try a new color palette, or, a new anchor statement for your product. 

And, it is no different when you participate at events and trade shows — you are are pursuing persuasion. You can do it TWO ways.

BRAND LESSONS FROM CES 2018

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Jan 19, 2018 3:20:57 PM

 

 

PONDER THIS FOR A MOMENT

"WHAT IF WORKING LIKE CRAZY TO BEAT THE COMPETITION DID EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE — MADE YOU MEDIOCRE AND MORE LIKE THE COMPETITION?"

 

Living in the 21st century, in the midst of technological overabundance with redundant apps and excessive upgrades and features (that human brain cannot even begin to cope), brands have indeed, become a sorry copy cat of each other in their effort, to out do one another. Since, we, humans, have been conditioned to embrace "the herd, the masses, popular opinion — and to reject what is different, eccentric or stands alone," we have pushed the brands into a "dizzying herd of indistinct options."

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Dec 20, 2017 1:54:38 PM


 

... AND JUGGLING THE MIND


With search engines, media portals and social networking sites cluttered with dozens of links and banners ads and magazines scattered with inserts and advertorials, how do we break through the clutter to grab the attention of consumers? Increasingly, the long lost science of tracking eye movements is coming back in vogue as markets figure out how to make eye contact with their target customers.

TECHNOLOGY TRENDS FOR BRAND EMPOWERMENT

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Dec 18, 2017 4:55:05 PM

 

 

As technology colors our life and work in radical and formative ways, forward-thinking brands are approaching the wrath of disruptive technolgy in a more holistic way. For example,

"Blockchain can serve as a new foundational protocol for trust throughout the enterprise and beyond. Cognitive technologies make automated response possible across all enterprise domains. Digital reality breaks down geographic barriers between people, and systemic barriers between humans and data. Together, these technologies can fundamentally reshape how work gets done, or set the stage for new products and business models."

LET'S START WITH CELEBRATION

Our brain is designed to run on auto pilot.

That is the reason why change is hard, laborious and outright painful. This is the reason why the baggage of lethargy weighs us down, when we have to make a purchase decision for our company that will affect our productivity and the way we conduct our business with our customers. Be aware, that this is the frame of mind of your buyers.

Display Booth Design: The Principle of Repetition

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Mar 13, 2017 1:55:35 PM

 

"Basically, the idea is that with everyone striving to be revolutionary, you will be most revolutionary if you try to be ordinary."

Denise Scott Brown

Ordinary does not have to be boring. Ordinary does not have to be sedative. Though, some believe that ordinary dulls the senses and cloaks the wonder of existence.

I say, ordinary sets us up with limitation and it is this limitation that inspires us to glimpse into the realm of extra-ordinary.
