Description

My presentation to the Marketing Week 'Brand Summit 2008' on Tuesday 26th February. To save file size I've cut the short section that was very similar to the 'New Model Agency' presentation, and just left the extended eBay case study.

What I’ll try and talk about How Albion are helping eBay to reinvent their brand communications: From image building, to telling the truth in compelling ways. Death to cleverness - immediacy, immediacy, immediacy. The community is the brand, the company is just the enabler.

How Albion are helping eBay to reinvent their brand communications:

From image building, to telling the truth in compelling ways.

Death to cleverness - immediacy, immediacy, immediacy.

The community is the brand, the company is just the enabler.

How we work with eBay – in practice Multidisciplinary team assembles around each task combining different skills and channels e.g. branding, DM, digital, advertising Truly collaboratively with our clients – they spend 2 days a week working in our office, we spend 2 days a week working at theirs. Brand and communications thinking integrated into the business planning process. Sharing our clients’ business objectives. Working flexibly with specialist agencies or production partners –providing creative direction and production management.

So how are we doing that? How Albion are helping eBay to reinvent their brand communications: From image building, to telling the truth in compelling ways. Death to cleverness - immediacy, immediacy, immediacy. The community is the brand, the company is just the enabler.

Our starting point We are the citizens of eBay world. Our purpose is to create a vibrant modern civilisation built not on agriculture, industrial production or warfare, but colourful commerce. We are a contemporary egalitarian society all striving for the same goals and like all successful civilisations, we have our own constitution and belief system that we stick to in order to ensure harmony within our culture. Different is good. We’re proud to go against convention. That doesn’t mean we’re weird or on the margins of society. It just means that if we think that there’s a better way of doing things then we’ll do it. This doesn’t just apply to shopping, it’s how we live our lives in general. We try to inject fun into everything we do. We don’t clown about for the sake of it but we are always positive and see the bright side of life. Although trading is the raison d’etre of our society, it is never a chore, always fresh and exciting. We trust people. We have faith in human nature, not corporations and boadrooms. That’s why we’re happy to trade with our neighbours rather than rush to big chainstores to buy what we need. We support our people, not “The Man”. The constitution of eBay world

The future More digital. More experimental. Creating value for buyers. Playing with the business model. ?

What we’ve learnt (again and again) New kinds of brands, literally made of users. Participants, not consumers. Immediacy: If you’ve got something great to say, just say it simple. It’s better to try some things and see what works, than endlessly plan. Embrace richness, depth, texture and complexity. Coherence, not consistency. Not advertising. Conversations. The growing importance of ‘voice’. Anything’s possible with plug and play media. The best work comes from collaboration. The importance of internal culture.
