OC072: Fly the Friendly Skies, Yeah Right. Brand Promise and United Airlines

7/20/2017
More
United Airlines has built their marketing on "Fly the Friendly Skies" yet in reality they're the most hated airlines in the US. From bloodied doctor David Dao to mom Shirley Yamauchi they continually break their brand promise through a total lack of customer service. Great businesses are built when we align our culture, operations, customer experiences and marketing with our brand promise. United Airlines promises one thing and yet consistently delivers another. Southwest Airlines is...

OC069: Realizing social media is kind of like high school

5/5/2017
More
Social Media feels just like High School. I came to this realization when I jumped out of social media for the last few months. There are three things I've learned about social media while being out of social media. 1. Most of us aren't "cool" (and that's ok) 2. Cool is always changing (still waiting for Parachute pants to come back in) 3. Real is always better (it's true with butter and it's true with life) Join our Private Facebook Group!

There are three ways to build around who we are: 1. Build around your personality. We use the Meyers Briggs test to dive into who we are. Not only is the...
