Content Marketing for B2B: Becoming Your Buyers’ BFF
The Bimaru states account for about 450 million people, and the four South Indian states, about 250 mn. Let’s first look at affluence levels. The average monthly per-capita household expenditure for North India across the states in both urban and rural regions is much lower than the India average of Rs 1,984 and Rs 1,054 respectively, while for the four southern states, it’s largely higher. The same is true about the penetration of consumer items like televisions and two-wheelers - and for latrines within the premises too. The average South Indian family has a better quality of life than its Northern counterpart.

Three Marketing Tips to Engage Holiday Shoppers
Heres a dose of inspiration for you. Earlier this year, CEB Marketing profiled how a division of Xerox used commercial insight* and a Challenger Marketing approach to revolutionize the way it sells color copiers to schools. The team, helmed by VP of Marketing, Leah Quesada, turned its standard product out marketing approach on its head and instead led with insight specifically, the fact that kids learn better in color. We caught up with Leah last month in Las Vegas at CEBs Sales and Marketing Summit and asked her a few questions about lessons learned and how she and Xerox are pushing forward with commercial insight. Check out her answers below. Get your feet wet. When we asked Leah her advice for those at the very start of the commercial insight journey, she had three tips: Get started by forming a small and agile team to conduct an experiment. Exclude people who are already experts in the topic they wont be open to new ideas. Be inspired by the idea of Marketing making a difference. Outside in. The results of Xeroxs commercial insight efforts in the education space have been overwhelmingly positive, so much so that Leah has applied the same principles to a new product platform recently announced called Connectkey. She explains here how commercial insight totally changes the approach to marketing instead of an inside out approach that starts with the product, the team is working outside in by starting with an insight about how knowledge workers work today and how Xeroxs new platform can uniquely address the challenges.

Shrunken head? Ripley’s NY to shoppers: Believe it
But theres been no such talk since last Sundays backbreaking loss to Dallas. By Ebenezer Samuel / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, November 28, 2013, 11:24 PM Victor Cruz says the Giants are focused on just themselves. Related Stories With Jerry Jones running Cowboys football operation, Dallas in for Doomsday Their slim playoff hopes took another hit on Thanksgiving, but the Giants were hardly paying attention. Most of the Giants werent even watching football on Thursday, when the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Oakland Raiders, 31-21. With the win, the Cowboys (7-5) took sole possession of first place in the NFC East, creating a little bit more distance between themselves and any late-season miracles for 4-7 Big Blue. If Dallas wins just two more games, it would completely erase the Giants chances of hoisting the division crown.

Ex-New York Observer Editor Kaplan Dies at 59
Then, the city’s mass-transit agency announced it was cutting its planned fare increases for 2015 and 2017 by nearly half. The agency cited an improved fiscal outlook, but Gene Russianoff, a lawyer and the spokesman for the New York Public Interest Research Group’s Straphangers Campaign, said he saw the move as reflecting a changed political climate. “They realized in the current political atmosphere it’s unsustainable to raise the fare a lot every year,” Russianoff said.

Data showed this week China s net gold imports from Hong Kong climbed to the second-highest level on record in October, while volumes for the nations benchmark spot contract rose to a seven-week high yesterday. Physical demand is solid, but not bullish enough to spark significant short-covering, Victor Thianpiriya, an analyst at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. in Singapore, wrote today in a report, referring to closing bets on bearish wagers. Market sentiment remains less than encouraging. Bullion for February delivery rose 1.1 percent to $1,252.10 by 7:45 a.m. on the Comex in New York.

Marketing Nano as world’s cheapest car was a bad call, says candid Tata
The report, Nonprofit Content Marketing: 2014 Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends North America , produced with Blackbaud and sponsored by FusionSpark Media, provides insights on the content marketing habits of 1,714 respondents representing a broad range of nonprofit agencies and organizations. In this report, we present findings for the overall sample and then look at some of the key differences between those who rated themselves as most effective and those who rated themselves as less effective at content marketing. Here are some of the key findings: Ninety-two percent of nonprofit professionals use content marketing, but only 25 percent have a documented content strategy Similar to what Content Marketing Institute has observed in our research on both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) companies, many nonprofit organizations lack a documented content strategy to guide their efforts. Those who do have a strategy rate themselves higher in terms of content marketing effectiveness when compared with those who do not have a strategy. Nonprofit Content Marketing Research: Successes and Challenges Nonprofit marketers use a fair amount of social media, but are unsure about its effectiveness Nonprofit marketers use an average of four social media platforms to distribute content. They choose Facebook most often, with 91 percent using this platform, compared with 89 percent of B2C marketers.

Black Friday Shopping On Thanksgiving: Brilliant Marketing Or Terrible Tradition
BlackBerry shakeup claims operating, marketing and financial chiefs
Its an amino acid called L-Tryptophan, and turkey has a lot of it, and chances are, if you arent a vegetarian or vegan, you ate a lot of it on Thanksgiving as well. People are simply too tired to stand in line, pushing and shoving to get $5.00 off that Barbie doll. Or maybe, this new tradition has some benefit. Instead of the wild and frenzied gang using stun guns on other shoppers in a fight for the newest gaming system, well see a laid back crew of Tryptophaned, zombies yawning down the shopping aisles, who willingly let their neighbor get the last deal before its gone.

Obamacare Marketing Drive Delayed Over Fears of Website Crash
Chief Operating Officer Kristian Tear, Chief Marketing Officer Frank Boulben and Chief Financial Officer Brian Bidulka all are leaving BlackBerry, the company announced on Monday. James Yersh, the former controller and head of compliance, will take over the top financial spot. No replacements were named for Tear or Boulben, who both were hired by ousted CEO Thorsten Heins in May 2012 as BlackBerry geared up for the launch of BlackBerry 10 smartphones and a renewed consumer marketing effort. BlackBerry 10 didnt launch until the following January, and the company has since moved away from the consumer business. I look forward to working more directly with the talented teams of engineers, and the sales and marketing teams around the world to facilitate the BlackBerry turn-around and to drive innovation, Chen said in a press release.
