GoPro – Building a Social Brand Using Consumer Generated Content

How GoPro is revolutionizing the branding game

We always hear these inspiring stories of billion dollar companies starting with a small idea and a couple of college kids in a dorm room. We all want to become the next Mark Zuckerberg, coming up with a small idea and later building it up to become one of the richest people in the world. But for many of us, this seems completely and utterly unrealistic, and therefore we lose motivation. I mean, what if I invest all my money and time into something and end up being one of the nine of ten startups that don’t make it?   Read more

Are you sacrificing authenticity for a “good” story?

Storytelling is something we previously talked about. It’s hardly news that this is a recurrent topic when we talk about how advertising is changing. And how our storytelling should change too.
New models of communication are appearing and, in response, we need new ways of engaging users, in addition to new ways of creating connections with them, in a matter of seconds.
Brands need to learn how to communicate in the language that consumers regularly use, and in the spaces they occupy. This is no whim, or something ephemeral. Brands need to do this if they want to connect with them and to create bonds strong enough that they will last over time. And this is really difficult to achieve with the hectic pace of life today.   Read more

SXSW 2017 – Helping Creative People Achieve Their Goals

This has been my 4th consecutive year attending South By South West at the city of Austin. Worth doing, although I have to recognize that I came back more tired than in previous editions: to the fact that the program itself has been always very competitive and impossible to follow its whole agenda, I stayed two more days attending SXSW Interactive…and that was a bit tough for both my body and mind.   Read more

Look for your personal Brand

Surely you may have thought many times why you have chosen a Brand and not any other, why you drink a certain soft drink or why you buy from a particular store. Brands are part of our life and, even if we don’t like it, they have more to do with us than what we think.
What would you think if I told you that we ourselves constitute a brand? If you are not familiar with the world of brands, it would seem crazy to you.   Read more

What’s wrong, Twitter?

Back in November 2008 I opened my personal account on Twitter. I did not have any idea about how to use it, or the benefits it could provide me. Anyway, I was really intrigued by it. I remember that a few days before I had heard about this social network at an IAB Festival that took place in Madrid. The 26th of that month I wrote my first tweet:   Read more

Social networks you probably do not know exist

We are used to managing our profiles on the more popular networks like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. But there are many lesser-known networks that can help you with your interests in meeting people, promoting activism, discovering music similar to your style or delighting you with the best works of art.   Read more

Monitoring the social web. How to choose your tool

Before starting a new proposal, you should be aware that the digital space provides you with a lot of information about your brand, your product, and your competitors. But… how do you organize all that data in a way that makes sense? Welcome to social media listening, or the monitoring universe.

Find Your Mission

Everything I learned attending The Fast Company Innovation Festival 2016

New York City hosted the second Fast Company Innovation Festival between 1 and 4 November. Under the theme #FindYourMission, it presented a unique and inspiring program of keynotes, discussion panels, interviews and fast tracks.

The festival has distilled my understanding that entrepreneurs need to stay in a state of permanent beta. It is a mindset that ensures continuous agitation, encourages a spirit of discovery and keeps a company at the cutting edge of trends and innovation.   Read more

Welcome to my Bitmoji world, lovely human

“I never was very capable of expressing my feelings or emotions in words. I don’t know whether this is the cause of why I did it in music and also why I did it in painting. Or vice versa: that I had this way as an outlet. I could renounce expressing something in words.” Arnold Schoenberg.

Whether through painting, music or literature, human beings have always felt the need to express their emotions, and as the years pass so too do the ways in which we can express ourselves  ─ with platforms, media and languages changing at the speed of light.   Read more

Once upon a time… there was a BRAND: new ways of storytelling in social media

Once upon a time… This is the way most stories used to begin, but now there are more ways than ever. Since we were children we have listened to many stories, passed down each generation. Nowadays, it’s not only parents who want to perpetuate their stories. Modern brands worth their salt take it upon themselves to tell their own stories to their consumers; to perpetuate their “legacy”, spark the imagination, and ultimately sell more stuff. In this ‘brand´s world’, where we have to decide between Coca-Cola and Pepsi or McDonalds and Burger King, the way stories are told is vital. Moreover, it is important not to forget that consumers can participate and interact with these stories.   Read more
