Changing Tides – August

Changing Tides – August 2014 | How do you create meaningful differentiation?

Many businesses are seeking the big idea. The homerun campaign that will make them the thought leader in their respective industry. Unfortunately, great advertising is only a part of the solution. A company’s products and services are critical to differentiation. The late Eli Calloway devoted his career to creating brands that are “Demonstrably Superior and Pleasingly Different.” He spent years developing the Big Bertha brand of drivers that helped catapult Calloway Golf to a number one brand. While Calloway never paid a golfer to use their clubs, over 90% of the PGA wouldn’t play with anything else. It is this ideology that fuels Young Company’s dedication to helping clients find their most meaningful differentiation using research, strategic thinking, and good old fashioned creativity.

I welcome your feedback and thoughts. Enjoy your August!

Thank you!
