Branding quote…

There isn’t any significant difference between the various brands of whiskey, or cigarettes or beer. They are all about the same. And so are the cake mixes and the detergents, and the margarines… The manufacturer who dedicates his advertising to building the most sharply defined personality for his brand will get the largest share of the market at the highest profit.

Björn Owen Glad, Marketing Manager, Editorial Comms Agency – Spoon

 

In our factory, we make lipstick. In our advertising, we sell hope

Peter Nivio Zarlenga, Businessman and Author

There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company, from the Chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.

Sam Walton, founder – Walmart

Life is hard. It’s even harder if you’re stupid

John Wayne

It is insight into human nature that is the key to the communicator’s skill. For whereas the writer is concerned with what he puts into his writings, the communicator is concerned with what the reader gets out of it. He therefore becomes a student of how people read or listen.
