One thought for start
  • Art refers to a diverse range of human activities, creations, and expressions that are appealing or attractive to the senses or have some significance to the mind of an individual.
  • And what about Kitsch?


fads vs trends wiki
Fads vs trends (Wiki)
  • A trend is something that somehow becomes popular within mainstream society over a long period of time. It is the direction of a sequence of events that has some momentum and durability.
  • A fad is something that is very popular with a small group of people for a short period of time.
  • A craze is a product, idea, cultural movement, or model that gains popularity among a small section of the populace then quickly migrates to the mainstream.
  • Despite the negative or counterproductive results of crazes and fads, some companies still in business today began by purposely or accidentally creating a fad or craze.

  • Fads are short-lived. Fads follow a classic cycle: insider discovery, followed by media ballyhoo, followed by mainstream embrace.
  • Trends, on the other hand, have staying power. Think the revival of interest in religion and the use of lifestyle drugs. Trends take longer to build and their effects may be felt for years, even decades.
  • Trends have deeper cultural roots than fads. Fads cross borders with greater ease than ever before and the U.S. has picked up on many recent fads imported from other regions. Pokemon?
  • Trends don't cross borders as easily as fads and products do.

Definiton Of Marketing
  • Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. (Approved October 2007, by AMA)

  • Promotion has four distinct elements - advertising, public relations, word of mouth and point of sale.

New 4P’s?

  • Personalization: It is here referred customization of products and services through the use of the Internet…
  • Participation: This is to allow the customer to participate in what the brand should stand for…
  • Peer-to-Peer: This refers to customer networks and communities where advocacy happens…
  • Predictive modeling: This refers to algorithms that are being successfully applied in marketing problems (both a regression as well as a classification problem)…

another thought

  • “The key to creating a marketing fad is to state the blindingly obvious in an appealing way.
  • Marketing fads, like Total Quality Management or Relationship Marketing, are those viruses that breed quietly in dark corners, then before you can say, "Shift the paradigm," spread through the industry like an explosive strain of the Beijing flu. The result is very similar: for a while it's all everyone can talk about, then you get nauseous and everything you do is crap.
  • Fads are developed by academics who have nothing to do all day but think of topics for research papers. Some fad developers have become so famous that they need never work in marketing again, which is pretty handy seeing as fads don't work in practice.”

Max Barry, 2000

verb yellow balls
Verb - Yellow balls
  • http://www.verbnow.com/?IDX=yellowball&
  • Cannes 07 gold: Best Integrated Direct Campaign; Advertiser/Client: CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL & PREVENTION; Product/Service: YOUTH FITNESS CAMPAIGN; Entrant Company, City: ARC WORLDWIDE, Chicago
  • “VERB YELLOWBALL is a big, bouncy, world-changing idea that was created to spread play to every kid in America. We’re scattering thousands of yellow balls all across the country. It’s up to you to find one, play with it, and most importantly, pass it on. FIND ONE. Someone is bound to pass one to you. Can’t wait? Check out our “Pass It On” section. PLAY WITH IT. However you want. Whenever you want. Just play. WHEN YOU'RE DONE, ENTER THE CODE ON THE BALL AND BLOG YOUR STORY TO THE WORLD. PASS IT ON. To a friend, or a kid you don’t even know. Pass it as far as you want. If you’re going on a trip, bring it with you. Remember, this is a revolution. And you are the messenger.”
  • VERB surrounded tweens — at home, at school, and in the community — through television, radio, print, the Internet, and out-of-home outlets such as movie theaters, billboards, and city buses. The result was an impressive level of brand awareness among tweens. VERB was perceived as multicultural, inspirational, motivational and a source of great ideas for activities that get tweens’ bodies moving”
