From the Publisher

This work offers a summary of the book "BOTTOMUP MARKETING: Building A Tactic Into A Powerful Strategy" by Al Ries and Jack Trout.

Most traditional marketing is carried out topdown. That is, the senior manager decides on a strategy the company will follow and the middle managers decide on the tactics to achieve that strategy.

However, in BottomUp Marketing, Ries and Trout argue that history's most successful companies have invariably developed strategy from the bottomup. In this method, the company first identifies a tactic that is delivering a sustainable competitive advantage in the minds of consumers. The company then focuses its resources on exploiting that tactic to the greatest possible degree by building the tactic into the company's entire marketing strategy.

Bottomup marketing suggests that the best and most effective way to become a marketing strategist is to put your mind into your marketplace and to find inspiration where customers come into contact with your product or service. By immersing yourself in the tactics of whatever works in reality, you can develop a highly effective marketing strategy.

BottomUp Marketing is a useful and powerful book which will help you carry out your marketing strategies successfully.

It should focus on what your products and services do for your customers. The former is corporate-centric; the latter is customer-centric. Take yourself out of your marketing, and put your customer at the heart of it. In other words, make your customer--not your company

Tech is Disrupting HR But the Human Element Remains Critical

Technology is disrupting human resources (HR), and, in most cases, for the better. In a recent report on HR technology, Josh Bersin, principal and founder of Bersin by Deloitte, predicts the HR technology industry “is on the precipice of a total reinvention.” The pace of change has been accelerating since 2010, when the market began “steadily racing to the cloud.” Advances in HR technology are keeping pace with—and in some cases driving changes in the strategic concerns of growing businesses. Emphasis has shifted from talent management through integrated processes and systems, to people manag

What This Medical Marijuana Company Can Teach You About Getting Buzz

The mere mention of medical marijuana elicits all sorts of jokes. But it’s a real business -- and when it’s not going so well, it can really harsh your mellow (sorry), as it did with Point Loma Patients Consumer Co-operative. The San Diego-based dispensary opened in August 2015, and sales increased by about $100,000 every month for a year.
