Snap Seizes the Moment

Snap Inc. last week filed for a $3 billion initial public offering. The company’s private market valuation is $17.8 billion, but investors reportedly have valued it at between $20 billion and $25 billion. “Twenty-five billion dollars is just nuts, but that’s the market we’re in,” remarked Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group. “This could provide an opportunity for the big gambler investors, but better to watch for the high and then short the stock,” he suggested, because Snap’s prospectus “suggests profit will never arrive.”

Fire, Aim, Ready: Is Your Marketing Approach on Target?

Business-to-business marketers know what customers want, in general terms, from initial contacts with the people they buy from. It’s taken awhile, but through trial, error, some more error and eventually some actual thought, the mystery has been solved. Before I give it away, just ask yourself what you want in any communication from anyone when it comes to a business issue. What business issue? Any issue — they usually present themselves as problems. What do you want? Something that helps you solve that problem.
