Integrating Owned and Earned Media

When communicators discuss where to start a PESO Model program , it’s often fraught with how and where to start. Because the acronym begins with P (or paid media), everyone assumes that’s where a communications program grounded in the PESO Model begins. Not so! There are certainly exceptions to the rule but, in most cases, you want to begin with owned media, which is the cornerstone of your efforts. Without it, you have nothing to share on social media, nothing to amplify with paid and not...

customer experience friction

Market research firm Statista reported that the global shopping cart abandonment rate for online retailers in 2020 was 88%.   This is driven by a number of factors, but friction in customer experience plays a big role.  One study pegged that a quarter of people abandoned shopping carts because the checkout process was too complicated. That friction happens sometimes by design and good reasons — such as legitimate efforts to deter bots.  But I think we have to continually evaluate whether ...

Weekend reading: Vaccinated

What caught my eye this week. I got the call to be vaccinated against Covid this week. I admit that being in the midst of reading about super-rare blood clots linked to certain Covid vaccines at the exact time didn’t fill me with joy. But as Tim Harford says in the Financial Times: An educated guess, based on UK data, is that being vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab carries a one-off risk of death of one in a million — not much higher than the risk of dying in an accident while travelling to...

6 Elements Of Digital Brand Dominance

Video streaming is just one example of a digital economy where competition is intensifying. Many so-called legacy companies are caught up in a battle with digital competitors, and so far, the born-digital companies have been eating their lunch. Walmart (and every other physical retail store, from Macy’s to Best Buy) is in a constant duel with Amazon, and banks and credit card companies are squaring off against PayPal and Apple Pay.

Defining Your Brand Vision

Brand vision is intention. It can be a single-minded intent, or a group of goals and objectives — typically no more than one, two or three. Steve Jobs wanted this, “Put a ding in the universe.” Henry Ford wanted to make cars that ordinary Americans could afford. (Consider that in Henry’s era, people were driving the equivalent of $200,000 Teslas while everyone else was riding a horse.) Tesla Motor’s vision is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy. And Elon Musk’s newest v...
