Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

The Marketing Counterpoint on Conversational Marketing

In response to my previous post on Conversational Marketing as discussed by Robert Scoble and Shel Israel in their book, I received a counterpoint from my friend Rajeev John, who is a marketing professional with one of India's truly home grown and respected consumer goods company.
"Its like the Star Wars program. Extremely relevant for 2020 but irrelevant now with internet penetration still in single digits in our India.There are still (& sadly so) a lot of marketeers who think marketing is a tool to attract SEC A + consumers only. They forget (or are simply not aware) that 75% OF POPULATION STILL LIVES IN VILLAGES. Now reaching out to them & bringing into the branded fold is the real challenge."
John, many thanks for the reminding us of the brutal truth. I am sure that there are others who might want to side your argument, like me.

Now stepping aside this argument for a minute, let's see that there are several companies that are selling their products or service in different parts of the globe, where net penetration is not an issue. Who would not want to read what Ratan Tata has to say, or Mittal. Or, the IT behemoths who are serve their customers worldwide. I would personally want to read what Capt Gopinath would write, if he were to start a blog.

Yes, SEC A is certainly maturing. We have seen communities being created around Sunsilk, Maggi and so on. But this, I am sure is just the start.Time is coming, very soon.

Shelfari - Book lovers' great social networking tool

While there are a zillion sites in the social networking genre and hundreds spring up by the week, Bibliophiles would love this social networking site called Shelfari.

This is a space to find out what is being read by others on different subjects, what's really hot in terms of the latest bestsellers and to discover what others are saying on books you have read or plan to read.

An absolutely delightful sight that lets you discover and discuss books with book lovers worldwide. You can also build your 'to read' list based on reviews by others, as well as join(or form) a community around a specific subject or them. Click here or the image below for my virtual bookshelf.
