Word of Mouth Daily – November 30, 2011

Co-Creativeship Keeps You Moving

With the current economic conditions, it’s important to look at the numbers and not just the headlines. What are companies spending on marketing? Well, the median number of companies spend up to 10% of revenue on marketing. This means for every $10 taken in, $1 goes back to marketing. Of course, when you’re selling something new or rebranding, the amount is more like $4-$6 of every $10 — at least to start.

It’s important to think of these figures because they take away the excuse of “we’re in a bad economy” when it comes to your marketing budget. It’s a simple percentages game.

We’re experiencing a new societal factor that affects your marketing: the expectation of targeting. There are very few people in our society that are unaware of the collection of information on their behaviors from Facebook to credit cards to movie watching. We expect from this, in turn, offers that relate to our preferences. A message that appeals to the masses is now trite. Society wants a marketing message individualized for each member.

Today’s technology is just right to satisfy demands. Email marketing, mobile & SMS marketing, social media dashboards, web conferencing and video chat, and supporting measurement tools enable businesses to confidently budget for their marketing and satisfy societal demands. The usefulness of readily accessible technologies can actually shape how you craft your custom messages and scale your marketing dollars.

A co-creativeship with Hamptons Creative Group can help put these economic, social, and technological components together for your business. Sound like something you could use? Start here and Hamptons Creative Group will get you moving toward success.

Words Have Power

We interrupt this regularly scheduled series on mobile marketing to blog about something near and dear to our hearts. ~Words~ We make our living with them, right? We’re all Word of Mouth | Hamptons Creative Group Blogabout finding the magical ones that will transform your brand from blah to brilliant.

So we were thinking recently (thanks, Melissa!) about the power of words. Specifically, the kinds of words we use unconsciously, but that have enormous power whether we realize it or not. Words like never, always, but, should, and have to. Maybe we can’t always control ours thoughts – we can control our words and how we use them.

  • Eliminate NEVER and ALWAYS. What a change this makes! Nothing is absolute, so why do we say things are?
  • Use AND instead of BUT. But dismisses the statement before it. And includes it.
  • Avoid SHOULD. Should suggests that you are not in control of your actions. What happens if we commit one way or another to inspire confidence from others in our actions by turning shoulds into empowering statements like WILL, DO, or COULD?
  • Say NO when we mean no, instead of maybe, or perhaps. These wishy washy words leave people hanging.
  • Turn HAVE TO or MUST into GET TO. Try it, you’ll like it!
  • Delete the word HATE from your vocabulary. ‘Nuff said.

As we continue our journey into the high tech world of mobile marketing, words are more important than ever – because those words are what people will be seeing/reading/experiencing when we text or email them on their smart phones. Hey, look at that, we did turn this post into part of the mobile marketing series. Hamptons Creative Group – keeping the power of words flowing.

WORD OF MOUTH FROM HAMPTONS CREATIVE 

Move It!

Word of Mouth | Hamptons Creative Group BlogLast week, I talked about The Mother of All Tag Sales, and how freeing it was to let go of stuff. Stuff that was weighing me down – literally and figuratively.

Continuing that theme, the elimination of the unnecessary, is a big part of my life these days. Streamlining my life, beginning with the accrued possessions that no longer serve me, has begun. Next up, selling the house that no longer serves me, either.

Letting go, especially in business, can be hard, though. I know it’s hard for me. Seeing the big picture – the picture of how I want my business to operate – really helps when I evaluate what’s serving me and what’s not. Is this process I’ve been using to do a business function still the best process? Or does it seem good simply because it’s familiar?

We’ve been testing several new ways to do our business better recently, and finding that some are great, and some leave a lot to be desired. We know that when we find the best ones, we’ll be streamlined and as agile as eels! We firmly believe, as does Seth Godin, that we need to “organize for joy” – giving our people the freedom (and yes, the expectation) that they will create, connect and surprise.



Scan me up Scotty
Recently, we added a business tool that we love, because we’re http://hamptonscreativegroup.mowbi.com/as addicted to our mobile devices as you are. We’re finding they can do more and more every day! In fact, see this funky black and white box with the geometric shapes on it? You’ve probably seen them in magazines, on billboards or retail stores. It’s a QR 2D matrix barcode readable by QR (quick response) scanners, which are found in most of our camera phones and smart phones. Grab an app from your carrier’s site, point at the box and scan away. You’ll be taken to a special site just for mobile users. Scan our QR code, and receive our exclusive complimentary e-book on social marketing. Pretty cool huh?

If you don’t have a smart phone, just click the box. You’ll get to the same place, and can access the e-book there, too.

We’re discovering new areas of mobile marketing everyday, and hope you’ll continue the journey with us, staying ahead of the curve with branding, marketing and social messaging. Hamptons Creative Group keeps the good stuff flowing, and can help you figure it out for your business, too.
