Take Marketing Off Autopilot and Get Creative


More than a quarter of marketers went into marketing because they wanted to be creative, researchers have found. So why do so many B2B marketing efforts seem exactly the same?
The reason, in part, is that some things work well. In nature, convergent evolution leads different kinds of organisms to similar solutions when they work. The number of strategies that will lead to success is limited. Marketers don’t simply echo the successful efforts of other marketers, though — they also parrot things that don’t really work.

Revolutionary-turned-entrepreneur wants to shake up education software via the cloud

When entrepreneur and computer engineer Nikola Bozinovic founded Frame in 2012, he wanted to provide a way to bring Windows applications easily to as many people as possible by way of cloud storage. Frame aims to democratize access to software, something that isn’t very different from Bozinovic’s earlier goal of bringing governmental change back during his student days in his native Serbia. This backstory is perhaps more unique than that of the average tech entrepreneur. Prior to his Silicon Valley days, Bozinovic lead protests against then-Serbian President Slobodan Milošević in the 1990s.

Project, Crowdfund Thyself

Neuroscientist Stephen Larson wanted to make OpenWorm, the world’s first open-source digital organism, available for Web browsers. So he and a small team of scientists turned to crowdfunding. With four days left in a 30-day funding window, things looked grim: The project was only halfway to its $120,000 goal, and falling short would mean getting no money at all. The team rallied supporters, obtaining more than a pledge per minute in the campaign’s final hours. Below, three lessons to keep in mind for your own crowdfunding projects. 

* The 30-day OpenWorm campaign started and ended at 9 a.m. Because Kicktraq records campaigns’ statuses at midnight, 31 data points appear on this chart.

Timing is everything. Galvanize support through social media at the beginning and end of a campaign, when most people are paying attention. 

More time ≠ more money. Extending a funding window only lengthens the lull in pledges seen in the middle of most campaigns. 

It’s not over till it’s over. Really. Hang in there.
