In Which Direction Blows The Wind In Marketing in 2020?

Hi people,

and hello from Parc de Milan in Lausanne. That’s the place where I normally go for my daily lunch walks when I’m in Lausanne. I mean, you overlook “lac léman” and the mountains. It’s just beautiful. And to me, that’s just what I need to refresh my mind and to get some fresh air over lunch.

People, today, I wanted to take a minute with you to share with you my three marketing ideas for 2020. I think if you focus on these three ideas in 2020, you will contribute to the success of your company, no doubt.

First idea – marketers needs to continue focusing on providing exceptional customer experiences through innovative brand driving activities.

Second idea – know your customers better than your mother by understanding clearly your customer journeys from your on- and offline touch-points. For example, a prospect engages through a phone call, direct email or digital engagement.

The third idea – create exceptional emotional stories to inspire people and to propel your brand story forward through your customers, because
the customer is in control today.

These are my three main ideas for 2020. And this year, my source of inspiration was coming from Mark Schaefer’s new book called The marketing rebellion, where he predicts that the most human company wins, and I fully support his prediction.

Now it’s up to you who inspired you this year to make better marketing decisions? Let me know in the comments section, and I would love to hear from you.

But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.

Cheers people from Lausanne and talk to you soon again from another great location. Looking forward to it. Bye.

Greetings from a Swiss mountain guy;-)

My 5 star​ hotel experience on the Seychelles Islands

Hi people,

I’m saying hello from beautiful Lausanne, the Olympic Capital which is home to 57 International Sports federations. I mean, being a big sports fan, this number is really impressive. Plus, Lausanne has been rated the world’s best small city by Monocles ‘Small Cities Index’.Wow, congrats Lausanne.

Loving marketing, I thought to share with you today my five-star hotel experience on the Seychelles Islands where we recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary.

It started with a warm welcoming cocktail with a spectacular view. Then when checking-in into our room, there was a lovely welcome message, champagne, fruits and decoration of two swans made out of towels laying over a bed of roses. In the evening, when we came back from our day trip the bath was filled up and covered with local flowers. One day we had a surprise breakfast at an amazing location and private service.

I mean, overall, you would say, well, that’s the kind of service that you would expect from a five-star hotel, right?

Yes, but I believe the reason why I felt treated like a king was obviously the wedding anniversary, but also the friendliness and the joy of life of the staff people. They were always saying hello with a warm smile and I just felt they really really cared about me having a fantastic and delightful holiday. Honestly, I really did. Thanks again to all the people there.

To me people, this is today’s marketing in a digital world where you need to create emotions, that delight the customers, the customer’s journey. Small details can have a massive impact on your customer experience. Care about your people and put the human element back at the center of everything you do.

Well, I hope this was useful and I would like to know what are you or your brand doing today to delight your customers?

I would really love to hear from you. Leave a message, don’t be shy in the comment section.

But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.

Cheers people from Lausanne. A beautiful city and I talk to you soon again from another great location. Cheers. Bye.

What Moves Your Content?

Don’t you also want your content to be shared among thousand of people?

Find below what I believe is needed to make your content move. Youtube is a great source for this;-)

(Disclosure: The videos are my personal choice and not linked to any commercial activity)

 

1. Be loud

2. Be provocative

3. Be funny

4. Be emotional

 

1. Be loud

Watch the CWS commercial “Say no to dirt”

2. Be provocative / be misterious

Watch the Travel Book Shop Case movie from Zurich.

3. Be funny

Even though you don’t speak german I am sure you’ll enjoy this video.

4. Be emotional

The music matching the content creates even a greater emotional experience.

Pro Infirmis “Because who is perfect?” illustrates this in a great way. By the way the video has been seen already over 14 million times to date.

 

The online revolution isn’t over yet but I am over with my post;-)
