Indispensable Brand: Move from Invisible to Invaluable by Mitch Duckler About the Book: What makes your brand indispensable? Increasing market share, commanding premium price points, enhancing profit margins--the overall growth and enduring success of your business are inextricably linked to the strength of your brands. Whether it is a corporate, business unit, or product brand in question, your challenge is to identify a meaningfully differentiated positioning and to bring that positioning to life in the market in ways that are consistent with its compelling point of difference. However, today we are faced with a condition that can only be described as brand monotony–consumers' inability to distinguish between brands within practically any industry or category. If you were to remove your brand name from packaging, advertising, or any other piece of marketing collateral–while leaving every other communication element in place–would consumers be able to identify it as coming from your brand? In most cases, the answer is a resounding "no!" The Indispensable Brand is your guide to crafting a brand strategy and rising above the noise and monotony in your industry... to move your brands and business from indistinguishable to indispensable. In this book you'll learn: The five key components that comprise any comprehensive brand strategy The four ways for identifying a brand positioning that is meaningfully differentiated How to ensure every aspect of the customer experience is consistent with brand positioning The five sources of inspiration that can drive transformative brand extension and growth The seven types of brand stories, and their role in fostering enduring customer relationships How to ensure digital activation not only drives transactions but builds long-term brand equity How to measure and track your brand's effectiveness and grow its influence over time Your brands are more than a logo, identity, or tagline. They are among the most valuable assets of your company. They also represent the promise you make to and fulfill with, your customers. Whether your business is B2B or B2C; large or small, product- or service-based--and regardless of industry or sector--the principles put forward in The Indispensable Brand will help you build and maintain a portfolio of strong, profitable, and enduring brands. About the Author: Mitch Duckler is the founder and managing partner of FullSurge, a brand, and marketing strategy consultancy based in Chicago, Illinois.

Prior to FullSurge, Mitch was a senior partner at Vivaldi Partners Group and a partner in the Chicago office of Prophet, where he co-led the brand strategy practice area. His client base includes Fortune 500 companies and numerous world-class brands, such as Exxon Mobil, Deloitte, Kellogg's, Best Buy, Payless ShoeSource, American Family Insurance, NBCUniversal, Cox Communications, Alcon, The Home Depot, and General Electric.

This week on The Download: New TikTok Trademark Could mean new streaming service, third-party cookies get a stay of execution from Google, Apple App Store ads could signal Apple Podcasts' future, and two perspectives on the downturn ad economy.  New TikTok App Trademark Manuela: Last Thursday Dan Whateley and Amanda Perelli, writing for Business Insider, covered a new trademark application for a service called TikTok Music. As the simplistic name suggests, TikTok parent company ByteDance could be looking to branch the TikTok brand out beyond its current relationship to music and create a fully-fledged streaming platform.  “The idea that ByteDance would launch a standalone "TikTok Music" streaming service in the US to compete with players like Spotify and Apple Music isn't unfounded. It already runs a streaming app called Resso in three markets — India, Brazil, and Indonesia — that has been grabbing market share from other streamers in the past year.” While nothing has been formally announced or set in stone, the sources Perelli and Whateley contacted for their story suggest it's highly unlikely ByteDance would file such a trademark. Filing in the US and Australia wouldn't happen without a strong chance the company meant for it to come to fruition. Then there's the matter of this move making perfect sense for TikTok.  Why cover this on The Download? Well, in addition to the general fact TikTok is slowly devouring the online world, it's coming for audio specifically and the trademark application lists, among other things, the proposed new app's ability to stream: “downloadable mobile applications providing podcast and radio broadcast content.” What remains to be seen is what the TikTok version of ‘a podcast' will be. Google Delays Cookie Death Again Shreya: Once again we won't be seeing the death of third-party cookies, as Google has delayed their death blow for another year. Last Wednesday The Verge's Richard Lawler covered the story in the article “Google delays blocking third-party cookies again, now targeting late 2024.”  “The plan is to expand the group of Chrome users who have Privacy Sandbox APIs enabled to “millions of users globally” starting in August, then gradually opt more people in throughout the rest of the year and into 2023, giving the publishers and developers of these sites time to find out how the technology works before the APIs are “generally available” by Q3 of 2023.”  With this second delay third-party cookies are becoming the shoe that refuses to drop in advertising. While podcasting doesn't depend on cookies per se, the ability to track individual consumers remains an expectation of digital marketers who don't want to see the genie go back into the bottle. If it does, podcasts are on equal footing with mobile and web ads, and all will have to do the work to target the right consumers. Apple App Store Ad Offerings Signal Podcast Future Manuela: This Tuesday's issue of Stratechery covers many sections of the Apple earnings call, but one particular section stuck out to The Download: Apple's new advertising slots. The new slots are detailed by 9to5Mac's Chance Miller. “Apple is expanding its advertising business and adding two new ad slots to the App Store. Currently, the App Store has two ad slots: one on the main ‘Search' tab and one in the Search results. The two new App Store ads announced today will bring advertisements to the App Store ‘Today' homepage, as well as to individual app pages.”  While the App Store and Apple Podcasts are different services, this change could signal a shift in the winds over in the podcasting world. Currently there are no ads in Apple Podcasts. Apple also puts considerable time into featuring podcasts in places ads would normally appear at no charge. Years of careful curation and optimal placement have caused those spots to become incredibly coveted. By making some of those spaces available for purchase - through search or the home page, or even on pages for OTHER podcasts - Apple would unlock a large revenue opportunity for themselves outside of subscriptions, and provide a new for-pay opportunity for podcast promotion. Ad Economy Downturn Dual Perspectives Shreya: On Monday Digiday's Seb Joseph posted “The downturn ad economy: A tale of two narratives.”  “There are two competing narratives on advertising at the moment. They sit uneasily with each other. But both are correct. Ad dollars are being spent, but they're also being cut. Yes, these two things can be true at the same time. No, the latter perspective doesn't make the former any less valid or vice versa. Really, it's a matter of perspective.”  The two warring perspectives in Joseph's piece are that of the big holding companies and agencies versus the platforms. Both are staring down the barrel of a recession and have different reactions.  “It's no surprise that the marketers who can afford to advertise now are trying to make the most of it.  They're spending ad dollars, rather than looking to pull them. Indeed, economic slumps are usually the best chance to buy share of voice cheaply at the same time rivals reduce their own. It's a cliche for a reason.   Otherwise, Unilever wouldn't have splurged £169.73 million ($206.7 million) on advertising in the first half of the year alone. Coca-Cola did so mething similar, as did McDonald's. The largest advertisers will try and advertise their way through the downturn — to a point, at least.”  Podcasting is platform-heavy, working diligently to get the big advertisers to shift their spending into podcasting. Yet those platform peers are the ones getting the short end of the stick when it comes to ad cuts.  “To survive, companies are cutting costs, including advertising. When these companies advertise, they tend to do so online first and foremost. SMEs and DTCs are nothing but digital-first in many respects. So when these businesses feel the effects of adverse conditions, so do the platforms they advertise on.” When those in the podcasting industry talk about the push for bigger advertisers in our space, it's not only for growth: it's to weather the storm. If some of those spend-through-the-storm big fish can be directed to our corner of the world, they'll keep multiple industries afloat. Quick Hits Section Manuela: Finally, it's time for our semi-regular roundup of articles we're calling Quick Hits. These are articles that didn't quite make the cut for today's episode, but are still worth including in your weekend reading. This week's four great reads are:  First: Google Begins Interest Group-Based Ad Experiment by Laurie Sullivan. Google is testing grouping users into interest groups (the article gives “custom bikes” as an example).This has implications for podcasting. What would be a great way to reach custom bike fans? A custom bike podcast.  Podcasting has a window to figure this stuff out.  Clear your calendar for the afternoon of August 16th as the Latino Podcast Listener Report 2022 is coming your way. The presentation, co-hosted by Gabriel Soto, Edison Research Senior Director of Research, and my co-host on La Descarga, as well as She Podcasts cofounder Elsie Escobar. Registration is open now.  Also: Podcasts are testing out-of-home ads to reach broader audiences by Alyssa Meyers. In a previous episode we touched on the story of Slow Burn buying a billboard to promote their season on Shirley Wheeler in Roe v. Wade battleground states. This covers the wider trend of podcasts dipping their toes in out-of-home advertising, first highlighted by James Cridland over in Podnews. The habit is growing and catching more attention, though it comes with - ironically - less metrics than the already small amount of fingerprinting traditional podcast advertising comes with.  Finally: How Slate's Charlie Kammerer is prioritizing frequency to boost podcast revenue by Kayleigh Barber. In a piece that rarely happens in mainstream podcast coverage, Slate's Charlie Kammerer talks through the outlet's podcasting strategy. Of note is the approach that shows integrated value, using podcast paywalls to drive subscriptions of Slate overall.  The Download is a production of Sounds Profitable.

Jarenlang was het een taboe: investeren in bedrijven die niet duurzaam zijn. Maar door de oorlog in Oekraïne zijn wapenaandelen in trek én doen olie- en gasbedrijven het goed. Moet je als particulier zulke aandelen inslaan? Je krijgt het antwoord van Jean Paul van Oudheusden (Markets Are Everywhere). Met hem hebben we het over duurzaam beleggen.

On this week's Money and Markets podcast, Laura Suter and Danni Hewson discuss earnings season as it kicks into high gear. They sift through winners including McDonalds, Coca Cola and Unilever, and losers including Walmart – whose profit warning sent a shock through the US and UK retail sector. They also look at upcoming rate rises, which are forming an important backdrop to inflation-wary company outlooks. Also this week, Ryan Hughes from AJ Bell's investment team takes a look at why bond markets haven't been performing well. Bonds aren't necessarily the sexiest corner of investing – but with predictions of a potential recession mounting, and markets becoming more volatile, people might be seeking more safe-haven assets.  Elsewhere, Laith Khalaf, our head of investment analysis, digs into an age-old question. During tricky market times is it better to invest with a human fund manager who makes stock picks for you, or a tracker that rides the market's ups and downs? Finally, Dan Coatsworth meets up with Jeremy Rogers from the Schroder BSC Social Impact Trust, set up two years ago with the goal of helping society and making money for investors. He asks where the trust is deploying its money, and what investors might expect from it in the future.

He holds an MA in Business Administration from HSG and has previously worked at Kraft Foods Group, Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Lindt & Sprüngli. Rebels 0.0% currently produces alternatives to gin, rum and aperitif, aiming to capitalize on the current trend of declining alcohol consumption, especially prevalent among younger generations. However, they take good care not to position themselves as anti-alcohol: they are merely providing an alternative. These concoctions, which taste incredibly like the real thing, are the result of double distillation using organic botanicals. Their production site is Switzerland, since the company cares deeply about sustainability. Since their production process is more complicated than regular alcohol and obeys a series of ethical standards, the finished product is not cheaper than its alcoholic counterpart. Rebels 0.0% recently met a crowdfunding goal in just 11h, which gave them an extraordinary proof of concept. Despite having gone the bootstrapped way early on, they have now also begun to raise funds in equity rounds (recently 1M ) in order to really accelerate their marketing. Memorable Quotes: "I never really looked at entrepreneurship as a risk. If I failed, I could just go back to my old life." "Switzerland will always be our home, but it's too small a market."

Welcome to Strategy Skills episode 263, an episode with an artist, researcher, author, and educator at Northwestern University, Julio Mario Ottino. Get Julio's book here: https://amzn.to/3b4390g   Individuals and organizations face complex problems and challenges today that demand a new way of thinking to grasp underlying solutions and opportunities. In this episode, Julio shares the beauty of the coexistence of art, science, and technology – rather than being separate disciplines – to navigate the complex world.   Julio was born in Argentina and grew up with twin interests in physical sciences and visual arts, finding beauty in math and art, and seeing creativity as being one thing, rather than something that lives in compartments. Art provided a cathartic means of expression while he grew up in turbulent times. He managed to create a solo art exhibit while drafted as an officer in the Argentinian Navy. When he moved to the United States to pursue a doctorate, his research achievements followed.     Most of the early attention Ottino received stemmed from pioneering work in chaos theory and a combination of scientific insight and visualization. His research work has been featured on the covers of Nature, Science, Scientific American, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, and other publications. He has supervised more than 65 Ph.D. theses, written over 250 papers and two books, and has given invited presentations at over 200 universities in the United States and around the world, as well as at organizations such as Accenture, Boeing, Google, 3M, and Unilever.    An academic entrepreneur, Ottino was the founding co-director of the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems and educational and research initiatives in design, entrepreneurship, and energy and sustainability. As dean of the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, he founded educational and research partnerships with Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, Pritzker School of Law, Medill School of Journalism, Feinberg School of Medicine, School of Communication, and School of Education and Social Policy, as well as with external partners ranging from the Art Institute of Chicago to Argonne National Lab. In 2008, he was selected by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers as one of the “One Hundred Engineers of the Modern Era.” In 2017, Ottino was awarded the Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education from the National Academy of Engineering for the concept of whole-brain engineering. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has been a Guggenheim Fellow and is a member of both the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences as well as the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.   Get Julio's book here:  The Nexus: Augmented Thinking for a Complex World–The New Convergence of Art, Technology, and Science.

It has set the standard for the PR agency business and the bar is exceedingly high.  Richard is the son of Daniel J. Edelman who founded the firm in 1952.  Richard was named CEO in 1996 taking over for his father, who remained Chairman until he passed away in 2013.  Now in his 26th year as CEO, Richard is one of the longest tenured agency leaders in the marketing services industry.   About Our Guest Richard Edelman is the CEO of Edelman, a global communications firm, and Chairman of Daniel J.

Richard was named CEO in 1996 taking over for his father, who remained Chairman until he passed away in 2013. Now in his 26th year as CEO, Richard is one of the longest tenured agency leaders in the marketing services industry. During that time, he's guided the firm's entry into Digital, Creative, Performance Marketing and Advisory. Under Richard's leadership, Edelman's revenue increased 11.5 times enabling it to become the largest communications firm in the world surpassing $1 billion in revenue. DJE Holdings' revenue increased 14 times during that same period making it the largest independent communications holding company.

Arizona and the Arizona Treasurer's Office was the first state to divest state funds from Ben & Jerry's due to their Israeli settlement boycott in Judea and Samaria last September. On September 7, 2021, Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee's divested $143 million of public funds from Unilever PLC, Ben and Jerry's parent company. Treasurer Kimberly Yee provides the latest update on Ben & Jerry's and the actions taken by its parent company Unilever. "As Arizona Treasurer, I've divested all state funds from Ben & Jerry's for boycotting Israel," Yee tweeted (https://twitter.com/KimberlyYeeAZ/status/1435279685399678982?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw). "Israel is and will continue to be a major trade partner of AZ. #IStandWithIsrael and I will not allow taxpayer dollars to go towards anti-Semitic, discriminatory efforts against Israel." The discussion with Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee also focuses on America's inflation surge and the solutions presented to address the nation's energy crisis and the national security at the southern border. Arizona spans more than 370 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection is on pace to make more than 2 million arrests along the Mexico border during the 2022 fiscal year. On the energy front, Kimberly Yee has been a leading voice to hold to account the U.S. banking industry and the world's largest asset managers when it comes to efforts to boycott energy companies. In November 2021, Treasurer Yee joined a coalition of 15 Republican Treasurers, Auditors, and Comptrollers of states representing over $600 billion in public assets with a warning that it could potentially reduce future business with banks that cut off financing for oil, gas, and coal. The letter reads: "We have a compelling government interest, when acting as participants in the financial services market on behalf of our respective states, to select financial institutions that are not engaged in tactics to harm the very people whose money they are handling. Further, we have the responsibility, as fiduciaries and stewards of more than $600 billion (https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Republican-States-Could-Pull-600B-From-Anti-Fossil-Fuel-Banks.html), to ensure that our financial service providers are free from harmful conflicts of interest that could jeopardize state funds. Any financial institution that has adopted policies aimed at diminishing a large portion of our states' revenue has a major conflict of interest against holding, maintaining, or managing those funds." 11-23-2021 Arizona Treasurer Kimberly Yee Takes Action to Combat Biden Administration Efforts to De-Bank Reliable Energy Firms (https://www.aztreasury.gov/_files/ugd/8bb536_af14647f8e5d490cbc1783deb42c31f2.pdf) 11-22-2021 Letter from U.S. State Treasurers to the United States Banks to end boycott of reliable energy companies (https://www.aztreasury.gov/_files/ugd/8bb536_f9575958fcdb45f6a6b7d5d4cff8fea3.pdf) Bio | Kimberly Yee (https://www.aztreasury.gov/treasurer-kimberly-yee) Kimberly Yee is the State Treasurer of Arizona.

Terwijl dit belangrijk is voor de cultuurverandering die nodig is.De grootste bottlekneck is het gezamenlijke doel die nodig is voor de transitie naar een nieuwe vorm van gezondheid en zorg.Dat zorg bieden geld oplevert, is een vreemd uitgangspunt.Als de ouderen groep gaat eisen dat alles kan en alles moet, dan is de zorg onbetaalbaar.Preventie heeft geen verdienmodel. Er is geen model dat er voor zorgt dat we beginnen bij gezonder leven.Delen van informatie en kennis heeft geen verdienmodel, maar delen zou wel de standaard moeten zijn.Stichting Corona in kaart is briljant mislukt. Ze kregen de publieksprijs in de zorg.Er wordt veel data naar beleidsmensen gestuurd, maar waar is de terugkoppeling van de conclusies van deze data naar de mensen die het werk doen?Met een gezamenlijk doel kun je vanuit vertrouwen en een lerende houding samen vooruit.Egge heeft geen vertrouwen in mensen die zeggen dat ze de toekomst kennen.

CFO Thought Leader

When Kabir Shakir first arrived inside the CFO office at Tata Communications, the former Microsoft India CFO quickly determined that there was one person above all others who held sway over the company's maturing turnaround plans. “The person who is actually giving pricing to our customers needs to know how much cash we make on Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3,” explains Shakir, whose 2-year CFO tenure has spanned a period in which the company's free cash flow has grown twentyfold.    “We had to bring our ‘cash thinking' down to the deal profitability level,” reports Shakir, whose choice of words at first makes it sound as though his finance team had become tasked with running an errand. However, Shakir quickly clarifies the magnitude of what he was looking to achieve: “I wanted there to be an undying focus on cash. It's not the most profitable companies that survive—it's the liquid ones.” While this is certainly an organizational mind-set that many CFOs eventually reach, not that many do so within a span of time comparable to that of Shakir's short ascent. For those who succeed in implementing the emphasis, as he appears to have done, leadership style is often the key contributing factor. Shakir, who spent 23 years climbing the finance career ladder at packaged goods giant Unilever, cites the scathing results of a 360-degree review that he once received as an aspiring future leader as the experience that most helped to shape his leadership skills: “It was the worst feedback of my life. Some of my friends even reported that I was a real pain to work with. They said, ‘When we come to you, you always have to show us how much smarter you are than all of the rest of us.'” In truth, a chastened Shakir tell us, he was indeed “nosy” by nature and would at times second-guess the work of others. Even faced with such cutting feedback, though, and as “extremely difficult” Shakir found it to change, nevertheless, change did come. “I have let go. And I now spend my time thinking, not doing, because that is what I'm paid to do,” observes Shakir, who says that Tata's undying focus on cash took root with the help of many rather than just one. Adds Shakir: “When I first walked into Tata Communications, I told my team that I knew nothing of telecommunications. I said, ‘Help me learn.'” –Jack Sweeney
