•November 27, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Years ago,I had been in a meeting and lucky enough to meet Guy Kawasaki, watching his presentation about “Presentations”. From that day, bang!, i discovered the pursuit of success.

We all talking about how important the communication is but day by day, it became more important than ever. I don’t know uhat futura will bring us but nowadays everyword counts, and believe me, words are too expensive to waste.

So, I like to share some links with you, if you still have some issues with presentation. Please check them all, and let your novelist(!) strategist or account director check too…

Here are samples from Guy Kawasaki presentations,  here is another presentation guru’s, Garr Reynolds’ blog for the same subject, here is a list of Top Ten presentations ever and at last, here is “The 8 P’s of Persuasive Presentations“.

Hope you’ll like.

Apple iPhone, my favourite bite.

•November 24, 2008 • 1 Comment

By the end of September, iPhones officialy launched by two main GSM operators ın Turkey. And in a second, rumors, gossips, complaints started as expected.

In the main time, for nearly 8 months we kept informed about the iPhone by forums, users and geeks. It seems like we had a new brick by Apple. Slim, stylish, hip brick.

Even I, an Apple fetish guy decided to ignore iPhone. No MMS, no video, no copy paste, no flv player, no Java, no memory card, camera just 2.0 megapixels. So many no’es for a product. It was clearly silly to have one.

Then,..

Then I had mine. My GSM service provider gave me a chance, having an iPhone kindda’ “for free”.

My Appleist side couldn’t ignore, said “What the hack” and got one.

And i can say, it became like my mistress…

I can clearly say that, it was one of my best decision to have it.

Let’s take a look why the reasons of “Why you shouldn’t have an iPhone” is totally silly for me. Continue reading ‘Apple iPhone, my favourite bite.’

Marketers to Up Spending in Cable, Online, Mobile in Next 6 Months

Says the report by Advertiser Perceptions. I’m starting to believe that this will be our matter of tought in advertising for the next months. “Is the main media we know, newspapers, magazines and TV coming to an end?”

Well, for my opinion, my answer will be “Definitely yes!”.

Ok, i’m not saying that “No more print ads from now on, behold!”…I’m just sayin’ that it appears so.  Maybe Mr. McConnell thinks the opposite way (which you can read below) but upcoming days, by the change in the form of advertising we know, is heading to a different, more “digital” way.

Also we have the “crisis” as you know (or should I say as you live in) and in this economically bounding times, brands and marketers need for “Aiming the direct target” and “Finite reaction for the action” became more desperate than ever.

So, you can read the article about the headline below and decide yourself if it mentions something important.

Advertisers Shouldn’t ‘Hijack’ Conversations, but Applications Hold PromiseBy Jack Neff

Published: November 17, 2008
CINCINNATI (AdAge.com) — Social networks may never find the ad dollars they’re hunting for because they don’t really have a right to them, said Ted McConnell, general manager-interactive marketing and innovation at Procter & Gamble Co., at a Nov. 15 forum on digital media.
