The Marketing Blueprint

A book I wrote at 21. It’s a no-nonsense, step-by-step guide to understanding and mastering the principles of marketing and selling any type of product or service.

Lesson #6 - Keep the Momentum

Marketing is all about maintaining momentum and constant progress. A brand should be seen as a heavy wheel being pushed up a hill—stopping means regression. The most successful long-term brands, like Coca-Cola or Colgate, sustain momentum, stay consistent in messaging, and continuously innovate to stay relevant. Burning out or settling can lead to failure.

Lesson #14 - The Power of Storytelling

Storytelling in marketing is the art of connecting powerful narratives to a brand to evoke strong emotions that enhance recall and engagement. Whether used on a micro level (specific campaigns or products) or a macro level (across all brand aspects), storytelling deepens emotional connections, loyalty, and sales. Brands like Google, Lego, Cadbury, and Disney have successfully used storytelling for growth.

Lesson #18 - The Drug Dealer Strategy

This strategy emphasizes the potency of providing initial free samples of products or services to amplify brand loyalty, awareness, and word-of-mouth marketing. This technique, adopted by corporations such as Red Bull and Freshbooks, facilitates a level of product or service familiarity and comfort among consumers, often resulting in future purchases. Be it a trial period for a service, complimentary chapters of a book, or promotional items from a clothing line, letting customers experience the quality of your products or services can lead to increased revenue.
