Along with  Jack Trout (see March 8th Post ), Ries coined the term “ positioning “, as related to the field of marketing, and authored Positioning: The Battle For Your Mind, an industry standard on the subject. Al was selected as one of the most influential people in the field of  public relations  in the 20th century by  PR Week  magazine and has written a number of books that have made the  BusinessWeek  best seller list.

Drupal Disruptive Open Source: Part I — From Brobdingnag to Lilliput
In its lowest terms, a disruptor enters a marketplace with an alternative technology and "kills" the leader(s). But killing the market leader is not easy. The leader will defend its leadership position in the market. That strategy is called, simply, "defense." Almost always leaders easily beat-back challengers because the leaders have the motivation and the resources — know-how, talent, organizations, capital reserves, and client relationships — which entrants must more or less replicate.

In no particular order: 1. Tribes by Seth Godin 2. Permission ... market research, surveys and trends

Branding Ideas at Branding Strategy Insider
As the Far East seems to move closer and closer to the west, and its two billion people open their wallets to brands, it might be valuable to seek some inspiration from oriental culture. At least, from one part of the Far East, which is as culturally diverse as Europe’s thirty-plus countries are, and as varied as the cultures of North America’s states. For western brands that are about to hit any part of Asia, you need a culturally aware Asian brand strategy to avoid a negative response to the culture shock you and your brand might experience. Even if you have no plans to enter Asian markets, there’s lots to learn from comparing ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Guaranteed Top Ranking
Can a SEO Company boldly claim Guaranted TOP Ranking in Google? What could be the reason of being so sure of this "guaranted top ranking"? Is there any SEO process we don't know about or is this only high-pitched marketing? (I think the second but may be I don't know if there are any certain methods...)
