    • A tale of two videos: creating an emotional connection

      It has become more and more obvious to me that traditional media strategies miss out on how powerful true branded content can be when it is designed to create an emotional connection first and provide information and awareness second. Done the right way, the result is brand loyalty. To explain this, I have a case study of two videos you may have seen lately.

  • Can a bad video ever be good for your message?

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back to your paleo pear and banana bread, the WA Police released their ‘Goodbye Graffiti’ video and once again turned the spotlight on bad video production. It’s like they watched the Game Changers video and wondered how they could make something even more cringe-worthy.

  • 5 ways to epically fail at business leadership

    If I’m not at Lush HQ working with the creative geniuses we have on the team, I’ll be working with companies on all things strategy and leadership.

    OK, straight up, let me get this out there — this is not how you tackle the tough interview: In all my 25 years in the media, I’ve seen some unusual responses to tough or direct questions, but this response from Australian politician Tony Abbott was the most bizarre by a long shot.

  • Colour psychology in marketing

    I bet you’ve heard that purple is a regal colour, red is a warning and blue is calming. These statements are repeated often but are they even true? While there may be some truth to these colour associations, it’s much too simplified. How we react and feel about colour is a mix of our personal experiences, our expectations, how we individually see colour with our eyes, and cont ...

    Content marketing is dead, or at least that’s what the popular advertising press in Australia would have you think.

    Putting the weight of your brand behind a social cause is a potentially treacherous decision. You’re linking your brand’s reputation to a potentially divisive idea and that can have repercussions — people are really fond of a boycott. These past couple of months Australia has been holding a referendum on the issue of same-sex marriage (or, as those of us on my side of the deba ...

  • How to market your B2B product with passion

    One of the things I loved most about journalism was talking to people about their greatest passion in life — whether it was cars or nuclear physics or the lifecycle of lacewing butterflies. Even when the topic seems boring, a person’s passion rubs off on you. I once spent 40 minutes talking to a guy who had spent 25 years writing for Britain’s top quarrying magazine.
