More Apps
“The most successful people are those who are good at Plan B.”—James Yorke, mathematician, on chaos theory
Customer Retention
  • Customer Loyalty
  • Innovation
  • Employee Motivation
Seth Godin fromPurple Cows:

“Designing ANYTHING for the masses is silly. Why? Because the masses don’t buy stuff any more. The edges do.”


Sell what people are buying

  • Focus on the early adopters and sneezers
  • Make it remarkable enough for them to pay attention
  • Make it easy for them to spread
  • Let it work its own way to the mass market.
Market Penetration is from the edge:
  • Technophiles & Early Adopters try stuff first.
  • If it is remarkable, they remark on it…
  • they sneeze to their friends
      • --> WOMA. Buzz.
    • (Just capturing T&EA would be HUGE!)
  • The Mainstream comes later.
  • But by then, there are many competitors.
  • Niche marketing. Verticals.
    • women, hispanic, elderly/boomers
  • Positioning. Marketing. Branding.
Tom Peters on Excellence2006

1. A Bias For Action Is Job One! (Construct a Discipline/Culture of EXECUTION!)

2. DECENTRALIZATION! ACCOUNTABILITY! (Tom’s “Top Two”, 1965-2005.)

3. Fail. Forward. Fast. (“Reward Excellent Failures, Punish Mediocre Successes.”)

4. “Metabolic Management” Matters! (Hustle! Adapt! EAT CHANGE! Win the

“O.O.D.A. Loop” War—Confuse Your Competitors!)

5. INNOVATE or Die. (“Game-changers” or Bust! Lead the Customer! Just Shout “NO” to Imitation!)

6. A Damn Good Product. (Pursue “Dramatic Difference.”)

7. A Damn Cool Product. (Design Rules!)

8. Ride the Value Added Curve to the Sky! (Sell “GamechangerSolutions”; Provide “Scintillating Experiences”; Become a “Dream Merchant”; Strive to Be a “Lovemark.”)

9. Relentlessly Pursue the “Big Two” Markets. (WOMEN Buy Everything

BOOMERS & GEEZERS Have All the Money!)

10. Best “Talent”/Roster Wins! (HR Rules! Everyone a Leader! Women Lead Best! “Weird” Matters Most! A Workplace to Brag About! Educate for Creativity!)

11. Demanded: Radical Technology Strategies! (“Incrementalism” Is for Wimps!)

12. Hard Is Soft! Soft Is Hard! (People! Passion! Enthusiasm! Wow! INTEGRITY! TRUST! Good Citizenship.)

13. Accept No Less Than EXCELLENCE! (Excellence, Pursuit thereof, Is the #1 Thing That Vaults Us Out of Bed in the Morning)
