CUSTOMER SERVICE

In the past, brands pushed out messages that came across as certainties and the customers obliged, buying more and more products. Then came the time of 'the customer is always right', but no one truly believed he was (brands just wanted to reach further). During the 1990s, companies realized that customers were no longer sticking around and that they were no longer blindly following their lead. As the Internet and social media flourished, new and better opportunities to improve customer service appeared. In today's increasingly connected world, the customer is king and brands need to accept that they no longer are in control. Brands can no longer de defined top-down.

GAMIFICATION

When we were children, we learned the alphabet by singing along, pretended to be superheroes that saved the world, played videos games, cards, role-playing; and then, one day, we stopped playing... or did we? The explosion of social networks and the tsunami of new interactive channels for communication that have risen in the past few years have radically changed the way in which people interact, engage and relate to brands (and with each other). Some companies have seen the need to pull away from traditional selling messages towards more interactive experiences that relate to consumers personal lives. Find out how game mechanics and game thinking can help drive innovation, loyalty and even sales.

MOBILE MARKETING II

In 1983, the first mobile device was launched. The Motorola Dynatac 8000x was a heavy, brick-like device that was - well - not very mobile, but still caused a great sensation. Since then, thousands of models appeared and in just a few years cellphones decreased in size and weight and went from being a luxury device to a mainstream commodity (and eventually becoming the most rapidly adopted technology in human history). Today, everything is a couple of buttons away. By 2015, there will be more than one mobile device per person on earth. Your customers are already mobile... are you?

NEUROMARKETING

Marketing has always been closely related to psychology. It is the art of persuasion. Everyone wants to find new methods of making people do and buy stuff.

Neuromarketing has proven that in order to sell, you need not to sell products, but rather seduce your consumer.

THE INTERNET REVOLUTION

This film explores how technology has driven marketing over the past 50 years, from the golden age of television ads to the internet revolution of today.

HISTORY: Marketing has been around from earliest times. But it was the industrial revolution which brought mass consumption, mass production and the mass media. In the twentieth century marketing came of age, promising endless growth and prosperity. But the market economy also brought boom, bust and environmental disasters.

TELEVISION: The 1960s saw the beginning of a "golden age" of television advertising. By the end of the '60s, 80% of the market could be reached through three single commercials in prime time television. Ads for Cadbury and Coca-Cola had a huge impact. In recent years the explosion of TV channels has changed the marketing landscape. But TV remains important. Ads have become longer - 60 second dreams and "mini-masterpieces" for companies like Guiness and Honda.

DIGITAL MARKETING: The internet now makes possible relationship marketing. Customer service has become an essential part of the "brand experience". The internet allows producers to know more about their customers than ever before - but what about personal privacy? Direct marketing has gone digital - but this creates problems of junk emails and spam. Social networking, twitter, blogs and viral marketing are all vital marketing tools.

THE DOWNSIDE: The digital revolution gives customers more input into the brands and products they buy. But the history of marketing is one of deception and lies. Is it leading to growing levels of mental illness as people confuse their real needs with things they simply want?

THE 4 PS & BEYOND

The four Ps of the marketing mix - product, promotion, price and place - are still seen as the basis of marketing - but how relevant are they today? Using case studies of companies large and small this film explains and explores each of the Ps.

PRODUCT: Brompton Bicycle is a manufacturing company based in London. The secret of their success is an iconic product, "hand-built" for its customers. Divine Chocolate makes much of its fair trade credentials - but marketing-wise the product comes first - people won't buy it if they don't like taste. Meanwhile, taxi firm Climatecars sells not a product, but a service - its USP is being green, but quality and consistency are major priorities.

PROMOTION: Television advertising is still the big promotional tool - but beyond the budgets of many companies. Divine has to target its advertising spending and employs shock tactics - going against the cliche. Another useful form of promotion for companies with limited budgets is pr - public relations. But it's not just the small companies - Virgin has been enormously successful at getting free publicity.

PRICE & PLACE: "Place" Is WHERE you sell your goods - and this is changing. The internet now makes possible more targeted and niche marketing. For Brompton Bicycle choosing the right dealers is critical. Pricing, too, is key for all companies - and needs careful attention. Market pricing and cost plus pricing are two key approaches. But how relevant is the classic marketing mix these days? Some marketers want to combine the Ps for product and price into a new P - P for the proposition.

THE POWER OF THE BRAND

All marketing starts with a product. But beyond the product is the brand. Vast sums are spent in creating and maintaining brands. But what is a brand? And why do some brands succeed and some fail?

SUCCESSES: Brands speak to people in a way that products don't - they have a personality, a style. One of the big brand success story is Innocent Drinks. In just 10 years Innocent's sales went from nothing to over óG100 million. Meanwhile Coca-Cola has used its brand to conquer the world - despite its product being little different from the competition. But the UK has its own long-lasting brands, too - like Cadbury's. What's the secret of their success?

SURVIVORS: John Lewis is a good example of how brands can survive - it's a question of keeping true to their core values. But as companies getting bigger, this gets harder. And is there a danger in losing sight of the importance of simply having a good product? Brands can be damaged, too. Did Innocent damage its brand when it sold part of its ownership to Coca-Cola? And what about the spectacular problems of Ratners, BP and Toyota? Some brands go on and on however bad their media coverage - like Coca-Cola.

THE BIG LIE: Companies like Divine Chocolate have found success through its ethical fair trade image. But ethics are often more about image than reality. Can companies like oil giant BP really claim to be green? And are brands deceiving us in a more profound way - making us believe we're inadequate without them? Psychologist Oliver James believes they're literally driving us mad.

    FINDING UNTAPPED GROWTH IN EXISTING MARKETS

    Featuring: James Hollingshead, PhD

    Program Highlights
  • Segmenting customers by behaviors, rather than by beliefs or attitudes.
  • Customer profiles that explain the behavior you are targeting.
  • How to create a map that your sales force can use for closing deals in new markets.

    Managers are under constant pressure to grow, but it is often difficult to find new avenues of growth within an existing line of business. Fortunately, growth is available in almost every market if companies look for it in the right way.

    In order to win in the marketplace, it is essential to understand which customer behaviors make money (and lose money) for your organization. Next, it is important to segment customer groups in a way that allows you to explain those behaviors and find the actual customers in the real world. Then you can identify the drivers and barriers to influencing the particular behavior you want to motivate. By doing so, your marketing efforts can be focused on the critical specifics, early in the process. Dr. Hollingshead provides insights on these principles, and offers specific tools for seeing existing markets differently and uncovering hidden opportunities for growth.

    Jim Hollingshead heads the Monitor Group's strategic marketing arm. He led Monitor's offices in London and Istanbul before relocating to San Francisco. Dr. Hollingshead is a graduate of Stanford University, and earned his MA and PhD from the University of California, Berkeley.

    IDEA OF MARKETING IN THE TOTAL ACCESS, THE, REAL-TIME MARKETPLACE

    Featuring: Regis McKenna

    Program Highlights
  • Why the current model of marketing doesn't work.
  • How your distribution channel can make or break your brand.
  • The blurring of the line between marketing and IT.

    In the past, marketing was essentially a broadcast activity: a limited, unidirectional casting-out of your message into the world. Now, thanks to the Internet and other interactive media, computers are handling many marketing functions, gathering data as well as providing customer care. Such transactions provide valuable feedback, rich with information that you can use to hone your brand and boost customer loyalty. But in order to use this technology to your best advantage, Regis McKenna explains that you need to create an infrastructure that responds and innovates, and use it to establish a dialogue that gets and keeps customers. This expands the responsibilities of marketing to everyone in the enterprise, and makes the customer a partner in long-term value creation.

    ... Regis McKenna is a well-known marketing consultant who advises high-tech, industrial, consumer, transportation, healthcare and financial firms in the United States, Japan, and Europe. He is the author of four books, including "Total Access: Giving Customers What They Want in an Anytime, Anywhere World."

    WHAT'S GOING ON IN MARKET RESEARCH? APPLYING THE NEW TECHNOLOGY

    Market research is big business, with clients demanding more and better ways of finding out what their customers want. The internet is now widely used -- as are mobile phones and other new techniques.

    But the classic divisions of market research still apply. We explain QUALITATIVE and QUANTITATIVE research: also PRIMARY and SECONDARY research.

    The publishing giant IPC uses market research for long established titles such Melody Maker, as well as for launching new titles, such as the controversial Nuts. Readers' views are vital to them. How do they go about researching them?

    UNIVERSAL RECORDS also wants to keep in touch with its buyers. For example, how will the market react to the launch of a new band?

    For CANCER RESEARCH UK, market research is about testing how effective their promotions are. How are people reacting to the latest TV ad?

    But WHAT'S IT ALL FOR? What use is market research if it supports products we don't need?
