 |  VP of Marketing, NetBase
3rd August 20153/08/15

Executives today have the opportunity to see visualization of social media analytics on a large-scale in real time. Picture a wall of oversized flat screens with scrolling images and numbers that quickly provide insights on the most shared images from your product launch, what’s driving share of voice and loyalty for your brand, the number of mentions a brand is getting on social media, whether those mentions are negative or positive, and how a new product launch is being received in Dallas or Dubai. Now, companies are able to harness and properly visualize the unprecedented and valuable amount of information [...] Read more →

Understanding what’s happening in your category RIGHT NOW can be helpful knowledge to have in order to drive growth and focus campaign efforts. For instance knowing when something game-changing is happening. Knowing where, why, and who is driving it – and then taking actions ahead of a competitor can really make a difference. As a social savvy operation, with a marketing or digital team in charge of your social sites, you’re probably already thinking along these lines. You may be operating with limited resources, but do recognize the potential and you are starting to carve out a solid digital footprint [...] Read more →

Man Shaves Beard Off After 14 Years, and Family Reacts in Shock, in Remarkable Razor Ad

28th July 201528/07/15

Yesterday, AdWeek reported on an ad campaign promoting M6 Razorblades in which an Israeli man shaves his beard off after 14 years.  The commercial was filmed almost like a mini documentary and you get to experience the real emotional reaction from his wife, child, etc. Since the story delves into the man’s personal connection to his beard, I thought it would be interesting to get a broader perspective.  No time for a focus group or survey, I of course turned to our social media analytics which in a matter of minutes surfaced the top 10 things men like and dislike about their [...] Read more →

Why Do European Brands Dominate the Global Luxury Conversation?

 |  CMO, NetBase
25th July 201525/07/15

What is it about luxury brands – those of European origin in particular – that have the global consumer so smitten? At a time when many economies across the globe are far from thriving, people will still save for that irresistible item that they cannot seemingly live without. Or simply buy it on credit. Why are we so passionate about luxury brands – and who is a luxury brand in the consumer’s eye? Here are a few theories: The identity factor – Whether you’re struggling to make the rent or carefully balancing a budget, a Louis Vuitton purse puts up [...] Read more →

Siri-ous Trouble

24th July 201524/07/15

As someone with a title like Chief Innovation Officer, I probably should have been one of the first smart phone adopters. Truth be told, I didn’t jump on that bandwagon until an investor looked at my phone during a board meeting and teased me for having an “old man phone”. In my defense, I was actually an early adopter, but I got burned by the earliest Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) from Sharp. Does anyone remember the Sharp Wizard? Ok that was what I used back in the 90s! But it was so useless I decided to take a break from [...] Read more →

Finding Daily “Dunk in the Dark” Moments to Drive Supernormal Growth, and Why Most Brands Are Failing to Achieve That

 |  Chairman & CEO, NetBase
23rd July 201523/07/15

During the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII, a power outage halted play for 34 minutes. Oreo tweeted: “Power out? No problem,” along with a photo featuring the now-famous tagline, “You can still dunk in the dark.” Oreo’s marketing reflexes were something magical on that day. Surely, they couldn’t have predicted a power outage, yet it took them less than a half-hour to deliver one of the most memorable advertisements in the past few years. To date, the tweet has garnered more than 6,000 ‘favorites’ and more than 15,000 re-tweets – and it’s possibly still the most unforgettable part of [...] Read more →

Haute Couture – When Birds Of A Feather Don’t Flock Together


22nd July 201522/07/15

As pink ostrich feathers took flight at Sotheby’s inaugural haute couture auction in Paris last week,  which featured vintage gowns from Didier Ludot’s collection, the Balenciaga gown that plucked top dollar at auction where the entire lot sold out at triple pre-sale estimates—birds of a like feather were spreading their plumes in sometimes phantasmagorical settings at Haute Couture Fashion Week 2015 in Paris and Rome. But birds of a feather don’t always flock together. Given the escalating pressures to produce 12 collections annually, plus a couture label, and maybe your own eponymous collection, there is a trend aloft to go off-piste, wherein designers literally escort [...] Read more →

Last month’s Fashion Week flurry of Spring/Summer 2016 Men’s Collections staged in London, Paris and Milan revealed both distinct trends and divergences among presenting designers.  In an attempt to unravel and decipher what some fashion pundits suggested was an ‘anything goes’ hodgepodge of trends in men’s fashion, I ran a social media analysis in NetBase.  The resulting Crosstab analysis in this post is an attempt to provide a glimpse of some of the themes pervading men’s fashion, where they might intersect, and to identify brands leading the narrative.   The Paris Men’s collection garnered significantly higher discussion around Street Style-both [...] Read more →
