Of Moon Cakes and Marketing Strategies, Facebook Gifts, New LinkedIn Endorsements and Much More
Happy Mid Autumn! Yes, we are celebrating Mid Autumn Festival already (sometimes referred to as the Moon Cake Festival).
A Moon Cake Message: I wrote about a Chinese folklore where a Han revolution was made possible by these moon cakes (made from lotus seed). Some powerful moon cakes huh?
Do you know that the strategy for the up rising was embedded in the moon cakes which were openly passed around under the nose of the Mongolians?
That’s smart marketing in today’s language. We have much to learn from the sages of old!
See, smart marketing strategies are the underlying principles that will make the difference between the success or failure of a promotion. Business schools learn important marketing lessons from “Sun Tze Strategies” used thousands of years ago although the implementation of the strategies are now aided by technology and gadgets.
In these weekly collection of resources, we highlight strategies, business and technology trends as well discoveries and changes in human behavioral buying habits and implementation tools that helps us execute our marketing strategies. Spend a little time to learn from these articles (not all are written by me) and you’ll grow your business much faster!
This past week, we wrapped up an 8-week project this week but are just as busy helping small business owners put up websites as they gear up for businesses at the end of the year.
