Brand Ego Tripping - true or false ? what you think ?

Of course ironic - yet a lot of truth though...... DO NOT forget the fundamentals of marketing in the urge to create experiential communicative and activating campaigns....... I am definetely so much in favour of experience-based solutions.....yet they need to relate to the target audience, they need to keep the objective in mind (among other things). Don´t fall in the trap of only focusing on the now and here cool factor. Pretty basic you´d say - but pretty often forgotten I´d say....... due to the ego trip of the idea creator. And temptations to only focus on the solution.

Any views on this?

New Media? Social Media?

There is a tendency these days to go crazy about blogging, youtube, myspace - so called Social Media.... But really - these are ONLY new methods to do what has always been a truth: To communicate well with your "stakeholders". This is exactly how you think when you are working with PR. You can decide to stay in silence and let people talk - or you can take and be part of the discussions. In the later - you do have some kind of influence instead of none. And as always when you talk - you might get valuable feedback. BUT you can´t control the discussion.

The new is though that the discussions is taking place much faster, it´s global and it´s certainly eased by the new types of technologies......... But take a deep breath. It´s just new methods/means to reach your predefined objectives and challenges. Having said this - I believe everyone should explore and figure out what they can do for you - these "new media"....

Denmark? The Capitol of Sweden....?

In a report from 2006 questioning people from all over the world about what Denmark is known for - a common reply was: "Denmark is the Capitol of Sweden"!!!??

It is somewhat interesting, however it is not true :-) Yet when going in to details - It´s a little bit scary. Since the next thing is that Denmark should produce both weapons and cars? Well luckily we do not produce weapons - unfortunately we do not produce cars either.

A rather diffuse picture amongst people in general. Luckily the different international chambers of commerce do not reply like above..... But it does appear as if we - the Danes - need to sharpen up in terms of catalyzing giving the general world a somewhat more precise impression about our country.

Pedro Biker - Evergreens in Danish Design


Great Danish jazz from the 60-ties.

Pedro Biker (4. januar 1925 - 17. maj 1973) was a Danish mucisian, singer and TV/Radio news man. Born in Portugal, grew up in Denmark. I came by some of his recordings the other day recently republished by Universal Music. What a long time overseen international standard Danish Jazz musician, crooner he was.

I can highly recommend several of his recordings..... Really old school yes. But good easy listening :-) !! Start with Evergreens in Danish Design....

Second Life

Now I am too hit by the Second Life fever. It appears as a fantastic playground for exploring ways to creating new online user interactions, communication etc..etc.. I salute all those small and big companies that urge themselves as pioneers in to this brand new virtual universe. But it´s also (for some) a little as when the internet hit us all massively in the mid 90´s - and everyone got crazy about announcing an internet presence - by advertising proudly a www.xxx.com adress..... and starting up businesses like crazy on the net..... is it not?

Having said this. There are indeed really serious investments being made these days in to the Second Life - by really serious First World and traditional online companies. It is really exciting experiencing what they are about to establish in the Second Life world.......and where it will go....

We will rock you - Queen - London


Just visited London and had time for a show. Let me recomment the musical: We will rock you.
Go see that show - it´s really good entertainment. Also for youngsters (my son is eleven and he had a great time too). And fun to have those "old ones" brought back to life. Really good actors and musicians.
