Sexy, expensive image-building campaigns might win your ad-firm a Clio, but, with rare exceptions they don’t put money in your bank or food on your table … at least at the level small businesses can afford. So, drive your branding efforts with free PR in the early days and spend your money on measurable direct-response marketing that ...
Just another global giant? China's Lenovo may have the ...
With a slowdown in the global PC industry in 2009 a number of the leading multinational corporations (MNCs) have chosen to focus their efforts on cost-cutting measures.  Although this can enhance short-term profit margins, it also reflects a level of corporate complacency to develop long-term sustainable strategies.  Quick fix solutions can plague the “global giant,” who are often too big to move, too heavy to adapt, and to slow to innovate.  While the notion of global giant is often type casted on to American and European MNCs, a closer look at Lenovo –  the Chinese PC leader (and #4 global PC manufacturer) – shows that they ... market research, surveys and trends
Welfare working group tries to create a crisis « The Standard
has been critique-free: who are the members of this group? What are their interests? And do their findings actually stack up? r0b, NRT, Gordon Campbell, and others have done some good analysis, to which I’ll add my two cents. The Welfare Working Group was handpicked by Paula Bennett and is stuffed with rightwing ideologies – most importantly Chair Paula Rebstock and fromer ACT President Catherine Isaac. They were always going to present a paper that attempts to create an air of crisis around welfare and undermines its legitimacy by claiming that beneficiaries are all bludgers (the same approach National is using on ... market research, surveys and trends

Seeking tourists, states try to recast their image
PORT HURON, Mich. — This state's tourism ads make people feel good enough to cry. They give hope to the jobless and goose bumps to the jaded. Daily they win new fans on Facebook, new followers on Twitter. When they come on the radio, they inspire listeners to turn up the volume. They even get people to visit Michigan . The ads are the stuff of "Pure Michigan," a campaign to replace images of gutted cities and shuttered factories with visions of vineyards, lighthouses, waterfalls, sand dunes and the nation's longest fresh water coastline. Designed to boost out-of-state tourism, Pure Michigan has boosted ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Some thoughts from me below. Research in Motion have been publicly developing this phone for 18 months, and have billed it as “one of the most important phone launches since ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What's Best for Your Organization, a Facebook Group or Fan Page ...
Within Indiana’s Tourism Industry, I’ve noticed that most organizations have created Fan Pages, while a handful have decided to instead create Groups or even a Personal Profile for their organization.

Whether you decide to use a Fan Page or a Group for your organization depends on your goals for Facebook. One thing you should not do, however, is create a personal profile for your organization.
