Building Profitable Business through world-class marketing

There are three kinds of organizations; those who make things happened; those who watch things happen; and those who wonder what`s happened.

If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.

As the world spins into the challenging phase of economy, both citizen and business wonder what is ahead. There is not only change, but the rate of change is accelerating. A twelve-year old girl said of her ten year old sister, “She is of a different generation.” Her younger sister listens to difference music, plays different videos, knows different movie stars, has different heroes.

Organisation or companies often fail to recognize that their marketplace changes years to year. Last year winning marketing strategy may become today`s losing strategy. As someone observed, there are two kinds of companies: those who change and those who disappear.

Today`s economic landscape is being shaped by two powerful forces- Digitalization & Globalization. The Digitalization landscape today is dotted with new products & services offering, one would not have thought that one day world will be lockdown and everyone shall work from home, using various digital platforms. Making marketing & sales call through video calling, taking meeting through video conferencing, government will run their cabinet meetings through video conferencing digital platforms. Technology drives the second major force, globalization.

Besides digitalization & globalization, other forces are reshaping the economy e.g. deregulation, privatization, etc. As the pace of change accelerates, companies can no longer rely on their former business practices to sustain prosperity. Few point below compares business assumptions and practices that were practiced then with the one is being practiced now.

Earlier companies use to make & manage everything inside the company, Now companies buy more things from outside or outsource.

Earlier companies are product centric, now they are market and / or customer centric

Earlier practices mass marketing now practices target marketing

Earlier business was managing from top now manage up and down and across

Earlier operate in the marketplace no operate also in the marketspace

Earlier focus on the product now focus on value for the product and feedback on the product

And their earlier approaches and practices that were practiced then, which are not practiced now. Those who have not changed their business practices is locked in traditional practices.

Besides winning business practices, is there a set of winning marketing practices? Are there winning marketing practices?

Answer is Yes according to Kotler on Marketing there are nine one liner formulas of winning marketing practices.

  1. Win Through Higher Quality
  2. Win Through Better Service
  3. Win Through Lower Prices
  4. Win Through High Market Share
  5. Win Through Adaptation And Customization
  6. Win Through Continuous Product Improvement
  7. Win Through Product Innovation
  8. Win Through entering High-Growth Markets
  9. Win Through Exceeding Customer Expectations

So out of above What Constitutes a Winning Marketing Strategy?

Clearly there is no on marketing road to riches. Instead of relying on one major differentiations or thrust, a company needs to make their own unique strategy of marketing activities.

Remember Knowing is Knowing and Doing is Doing, it is not enough to do most things a little better than the competitors.  We at Trizone assist businesses to weave its own unique tapestry of marketing qualities and activities.

Do you dare create and believe and achieve all you want in life?

Do you dare create and believe and achieve all you want in life?

Do you dream like a child? Do you act on your ideas? Or do you let your dreams and ideas slip away?
THINK when you were still a KID

THINK when you were a KID everything is POSSIBLE

You put the BLANKET over your back, then you became a SUPERMAN

You take your mom`s BROOM and ride on it, then you became a WITCH

You climb up the TREE not knowing that you might fall, you simply made it

You just has an IDEA and made it happened, because you BELIEVE

You were then, CREATIVE with strong BELIEF

As you became ADULT. Things seems to be a little different..

When you failed in your EXAM, you think “I can NEVER make it”

When you have a BRILLIANT marriage proposal, than you think “Maybe it`s NOT the right time”

When you want to start a BUSINESS, you think “maybe it`s NOT an easy”

When you are ALREADY in the BUSINESS, you heard someone says do NOT take risk

Then, when you have a BRILLIANT IDEA that, can create more JOBS & OPPORTUNITIES, can provide a better LIVING, Can make our nation PROUD, can help the GROWTH of our nation, and can create a better WORLD… and you said “I am not SURE….”

You are still CREATIVE but with more DOUBT

Then YEARS LATER, you heard.. someone had the same idea as yours..

What makes him DIFFERENT from YOU?

His ACTION he puts his IDEA into reality..

He`s the most promising CREATIVE YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR of the Year..

His ACTION won him this recognition

Then you started to think, How I WISHED I had taken ACTION that years ago..

THINK when you were a KID

If the idea came by when you were still a KID

Could you have taken ACTION???

When back then, you strongly BELIEVE…

It is never too late….

You just need to have an IDEA and make it happen…

You still CAN, ….if you BELIEVE..

CREATIVITY starts from a BELIEF..

If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the Rich should be dancing on the streets. But only Poor Kids do that.

If power ensuressecurity, then top Officials should walk unguarded. But people who live on road side feel more secure.

If beauty brings ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages.But they have one of the worst relationships.

Thats why…
Live simply…
Walk humbly..
Love genuinely.
