Green is good at TechTown

How can a city market itself? Well, Dayton is taking a shot at it with the development of TechTown. TechTown will be located on a 30 acre riverfront site near 5th 3rd Field, formerly occupied by GM. The interesting part of this new development is that the complex is going to be designed to be green. (environmentally friendly) That makes the project not just another downtown development, but something perhaps worth remarking about. In a city that has seen its fair share of bad news, this is a step in the right direction.Green is good at TechTown

Church of the Customer Blog: The McChronicles of McDonald's

Today I point you to a terrific post on the Church of the Customer blog. The post revolves around the story of a man who loves McDonald's. In fact he loves them so much he started a blog, The McChronicles, logging his experiences in the stores, his impressions of their products and services, and his views on their marketing strategies. This is such a great post about the power of the customer and the need for businesses to listen, learn, and take action.Church of the Customer Blog: The McChronicles of McDonald's


Fred Factor...Are You A Fred?

My friend Derek told me about the book The Fred Factor , by Mark Sanborn a few months ago, and I was interested to read it. Well, I finally bought the book last week and thumbed through it, and it was as good as advertised. The Fred Factor is based on the story of the author's mailman, Fred, and his ability to do a regular job with such passion and enthusiasm that it was no longer regular, but remarkable. Thus, the Fred Factor was born. This book is a very easy read, and presents some easy to implement but very effective concepts. The Four Principles of the Fred Factor are: Everyone Makes a Difference, Everything is Built on Relationships, You Must Continually Create Value For Others (and it doesn't have to cost a penny), and You Can Reinvent Yourself Regularly. The book elaborates on these general principles in a way that is easy to understand. If you are looking for a good read, check out The Fred Factor.Fred Factor...Are You A Fred?

Seth's Blog: The proximity effect

Seth Godin discussed something he termed The Proximity Effect in his blog yesterday. It is an interesting post about how it is important to be different but in the right way. It is not bad to be compared to the competition, to be placed next to another, provided you have some tangible difference that is of value. As Seth says, "Competition lets you sell the difference, not the whole thing." If you were placed side by side with your biggest competitor, would anyone be able to tell you apart? Would anyone choose you? Why? Not everyone will choose you. That is alright. Figure out who would and why, and engage them. Seth's Blog: The proximity effect

Bridging the Gap

Special thanks to Rod Sommer from LJB Inc and his special guest Maureen Blandford, who spoke to the Dayton AMA at yesterday's meeting. They teamed up to address the issue of, "Bridging the Gap between Sales and Marketing," and it was an excellent presentation. Of particular interest was Rod's strategy of pushing the principals in the firm, many of them engineers by trade, out into the marketplace as consultative sales reps. Coming soon to Dayton AMA Blog will be an interview with Maureen about her new book. Thanks to everyone who attended the meeting, and to Rod and Maureen for doing such an excellent job.LJB Inc.

Proof that Dayton AMA blog is fun too. Check out 5ives. This site is all about lists, you guessed it, in groups of 5. One example, Five favorite new wave drummers. Topping the list, Stewart Copeland (The Police). I concur with that assessment. The site is a lot of fun, and worth at least a look.5ives


Delphi CEO warns automakers

Delphi CEO Robert Miller Jr. went out on a limb and warned the big 3 automakers that they could be next. Is this shocking news to anyone? They are all rated horribly by S&P, and they lag further and further behind in the industry in terms of innovation. Look at the marketing efforts of the big 3 over the last year and you will see all of them competing by slashing prices, 0% financing, and employee discounts. When your marketing mix consists of buying thousands of expensive and useless television ads advertising the fact that you are the cheapest, you are in trouble. Delphi CEO warns automakers

Kettering's ingenuity paying off

This is Marketing! Kettering is trying to tell a story; to create a community that is perceived as prosperous. The city has taken a proactive approach, torn down decaying buildings, redeveloped vacant and stagnant sites, enticed new businesses to locate in the community and fostered the growth of the city. This is an approach that the rest of the Dayton area should be emulating, as the jobs of yesterday's economy leave town. Kettering is doing something about its future, not just passively sitting idle as the world passes by.Kettering's ingenuity paying off

In this installment, John discusses the shift in strategy by Starbucks as a result of their phenominal growth. Brand Autopsy: The Excess of Access

Brand Autopsy: Touchology Trumps Technology

John Moore continues his series of posts about Tribal Knowledge and Starbucks, with his third post on the subject entitled Touchology Trumps Technology. Again John is right on the money. "For Starbucks, high-touching its business is about empowering and trusting store partners to be real, to be genuine, and by all means … to be human." This post is so true. How many businesses have attempted to shortcut true and genuine relationships with their customers with Technology? How many times has it actually worked? I was listening to "Free Prize Inside" (again) by Seth Godin on the way to work today and this ties right in with his points. Soft innovation is King. The Free Prize of having a fantastic coffee made just how you want, by someone who is interesting and interested in you is worth paying for, and costs little or nothing to produce. GREAT POST JOHN!!!Brand Autopsy: Touchology Trumps Technology


Brand Autopsy: Make the Common Uncommon

The War of Art

I love to share, especially when it comes to reading. The War of Art by Steven Pressfield is excellent. The book is all about overcoming resistance to achieve your dreams. It is a very candid, straightforward look at how to approach life with passion and get more out of your life. The chapters are short, and get right to the point. A great read, and as claimed on the cover "a kick in the ass!"
