  • Lessons from a humble bike shop

    I’m lucky to live in a cycling city, with one of the country’s highest bike-shop counts per head. The independents often barely squeak by, and all bike retailers are impacted by online competition. A traditional industry that’s older than the car trade (brands like Peugeot made bikes before cars), it appears few bike shops have adapted profitably to hybrid models. And yet a few are doing OK, even thriving – and their unconventional thinking may have timeless lessons for all of us including in B2B.

  • Spring trend watch – look outside your industry for fresh insights

    When Facebook launched in 2004 your profile page offered two options under ‘gender’ – now there are about 60 ‘custom’ choices. In the traditionally conservative insurance business, Lemonade is winning by really challenging long-held assumptions. As marketers, we need to regularly re-test all those basic market assumptions found at the bottom of our spreadsheets.

  • Have courage – avoid being overwhelmed by sticking with the right kind of data

    Now, more than ever, it’s critical to focus and simplify the challenges that we face to deliver communications with real impact. As senior marketers we have a lot to think about, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed as the range of skills needed grows, new channels emerge every month and decisions can become more complex… but fortunately I think marketing can save itself by sticking with the fundamentals and the right kinds of data, and recent reading shows I’m not alone.
