Marketers work and so does marketing

If you are one of those people that hate marketeers, I have a message for you: you have created us. The only thing we strife for is to get the message of the product across to you. We analyse what works and go from there. It’s your own fault that the things that work are not always the ones you like.

upcoming features

I just wanted to assure you all that there are new articles on the way. The problem is that I don’t just want to write something. I want to give you something worthwhile. So these are some things I’ve been working on:

  • The difference between your first personal site and a full fledged international site with all the trimming
  • A rant in favour of marketeers
  • Comparing online channels to traditional ones
  • Original uses of Twitter

I hope this inspires you to come back.
If you have any topics you want to see me tackle, don’ t hesitate to ask.

Question about evolution?

Here’s a thought: if animals evolve into the thing they need to be, where will mankind be in a few thousand years.

The reason giraffes have developed such a long neck is because the food that they eat is on trees. They need their neck to reach their food. A chameleon has developed it’s camouflage techniques because it needs to be invisible for predators. You can look up thousands of these evolutionary facts. The main basis for this is that the animal (or plant) adapts itself to it’s surroundings to be able to survive. Read the rest of this entry »

New project project

No, it’s not a typo. I’ve just started a new project. And it’s a project project.

You can see it on 99 projects. It’s been a long time that I have to many ideas in my head. With this new site, I can write them down (when I have the time) and share them with the world. My goal is to finish writing down the 99 projects and then I’ll treat myself to something. I don’t know exactly what but it will be something good. So go and take a look and as always: comment, comment, comment.

How to manage multiple projects: practical tips

Managing a lot of projects at the same time takes practice. At the moment I am doing eight (8) simultaneously. It used to be very hard. I sent mails to the wrong people, made adaptations in the wrong files, tested on the wrong platforms, … you name it. But when time goes by, people tend to get a little smarter. (I hope I do anyway) You learn new things by doing, master new skills, manage your time better. That’s the key to managing multiple projects: manage your time.

To help you conquer the mountain of work you might have before you: here are a few tips to make sure the mountain doens’t fall on Mohammed. Read the rest of this entry »

More views than ever before

Hi everyone

Since about a week, I have received more views than ever before. It’s not spectacular when you place it next to big blog numbers but when you compare it to the last few months, it really is remarkable. The thing is, that I don’t know where they come from.  I can see in my dashboard which posts are most viewed.

E.g. Trend: converting everyday products into design items was pretty popular. Maybe I just struck a nerve there. Do you think I should do more posts in the same way? Maybe I should, but does that mean I cave to public demand when there is none?

greatest idea ever

Well, It might not be the greatest but it’s still a good idea I have.

The problem is that I don’t want to post it online. I have been thinking about what to do and I have some concerns.

It’s a product Idea in a field I don’t know, which means that I have no clue who to approach about this.
I know it’s great, but I have no means of making a working model for now.
I don’t want to post it online because it’s easy to manufacture and could be the greatest thing since those little table they put in pizza boxes to keep the pizza from sticking to the top of the box. Any company with a little know how can duplicate it easily so I don’t want to give it away for free.
I’m looking at some product innovation competitions but they are all very technical and my idea is just to simple.
That’s why I’m in a pickle.

If anyone has a suggestion on how to go forward on this, let me know.
