As part of your application, tell us which one of these 5 points from our Marketing Manifesto speaks to you the most and why?
1. Begin with why.
Customers care less about what you do, and more about why you do it. Peel back the layers of your own story until you get to your essential purpose.
2. Be unapologetically specific.
Trying to be all things to all people makes for an unmemorable experience. Unapologetic specificity gives you a better chance for success by design, rather than by default.
3. Do less, better.
Be discerning. Say no to good-but-not-great ideas and instead wait for the lighting bolt.
4. Don’t compete. Conquer.
Don’t compete with the big guys by doing what they do. Find what they can’t do and do it better than anyone.
5. Mind your body. Listen to your gut. Speak from the heart.
When creativity is expressed with focus, intuition and authenticity, it cuts through the noise and resonates more powerfully. Trust your instincts and speak the truth.
