How the Democrats Could STILL Win in November

September 21st, 2010 · 6 Comments · language, Marketing Techniques and Philosophies, Politics

But most of those 91 accomplishments didn’t require approval by Congress. The Republicans have decided, as a bloc, to vote against almost anything we propose—even if they proposed it first. If it comes from the Democrats, they vote no, end of story. How much more progress would we have made without their tantrumy-two-year-old behavior? How much better shape would the economy and our carbon footprint be in if, for instance, the green Jobs package hadn’t been so watered down?

Slicing the Green Pie: How to Segment in the Green Market

September 7th, 2010 · Comments Off · Demographics/Psychographics, Diversity, Energy & Sustainability, Marketing Techniques and Philosophies

Would you use the same marketing strategy to sell a Lexus and a Smart car? I certainly hope not! Market segmentation, and then marketing differently to those different segments, is a pillar of marketing strategy and has been for more than 100 years. And in our technological era, it’s so easy to do, you’d be a fool to try any kind of one-size-fits-all marketing.

This is equally true in any sector of the Green market.

A Concentrated Dose of Marcia Yudkin, Marketing Genius–Plus Other Goodies (#blogboost )

August 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Marketing Techniques and Philosophies, Marketing Trends/News, Uncategorized

Marcia Yudkin’s weekly Marketing Minute and occasional Name Tales (product and company naming stories) have been brightening my e-mail box all the way back to 1998. She was one of the first people with a folder in my Marketing Geniuses file, where I keep many of her back issues. And she’s one of a very few newsletter publishers who continue to provide value to me many years after I subscribed. (My typical tenure as a subscriber is somewhere between six months and two years).

The point I’m making is that Marcia is someone well worth paying attention to.

August 7th, 2010 · 7 Comments · Abundance and Prosperity, Corporate Social Responsibility, Marketing Techniques and Philosophies, poverty, Social and Economic Justice

Essentially, the term Fair Trade refers to the following business model: companies pay craftsmen and farmers in developing countries an increased wage for goods that are traditionally produced in that region. These goods are produced with an eye to minimal environmental impact. Examples of Fair Trade goods are: bananas, honey, cotton, wine, handcrafts, coffee, sugar, and tea. As of 2008, the annual amount of revenue generated by Fair Trade goods amounted to approximately US$4.08 billion worldwide.

While the popularity of Fair Trade goods is almost certainly a byproduct of good intentions on the part of consumers, is there a downside to the Fair Trade industry?

A Brilliant Ad for CSR…A Puzzling Call to Action

August 1st, 2010 · 6 Comments · Advertising, Corporate Social Responsibility, Demographics/Psychographics, Marketing Techniques and Philosophies, People Helping People, poverty, Social and Economic Justice

I got the message that it’s my job to make a difference in the world, no matter what I happen to wear.
