“If you think of the wine and beer industries, many labels look the same — same shape, same back label, even similar websites,” Solis said. Many companies put craftsmanship above marketing, but the fact is that quality isn’t enough. “The word ‘brand’ means there’s something behind it that becomes relatable and shareable, and that takes some work,” he explained. “A great product is not going to be enjoyed if people don’t buy it and talk about it.”

Gourou de la transformation digitale, Brian Solis appelle les entreprises à investir dans l’innovation. Au risque de disparaître.
by: Dimitri Ganevat, CREA Genève Une conférence exclusive de Brian Solis a été organisée ce vendredi pour les étudiants du bachelor et du master en digital marketing. Des discussions très intéressantes autour de son dernier livre X : The experience when business meets design.
Tout va passer par l’émotion que l’on aura susciter », relève ce gourou de la Silicon Valley. Les gens ne se rappellent pas de ce que vous avez fait ou dit mais ils n’oublient pas l’impression que vous leur avez laissé. Vous pouvez avoir conçu le meilleur site, inventé les produits les plus performants, cela n’aura que peu d’impact s’ils n’expriment rien pour eux. »
C’est ce qu’il démontre dans son dernier ouvrage « The Experience : when Business meets Design », un plaidoyer pour un design centré sur l’humain.
You are early adopters. What takes to reach you now is different than yesterday. We are all in control of experiences we have.
“Someone has to take the lead in bringing mobile to the forefront of digital design. Investing in a mobile program just to check the box is no longer good enough. The reality is that mobile is now the first screen.”
“Digital transformation is more than just digital; it’s about remodeling businesses to be agile, innovative, and customer-centric at their core.”
Brian Solis drew on the seminal work of Clayton Christensen, whose model of technology adoption is widely applied in industry. Disruptive innovation, the seemingly uncomfortable process that arises when new technology or ideas are introduced into a conservative environment, is generally unwelcome to many in the business world. We like certainty and abhor change. Yet disruptive innovation is actually an opportunity for creativity and problem solving in organisations, says Solis.
Solis said the first thing society does is judge the next generation with statements like, “put your phone down.” What that says is, “You need to be more like me.” Solis said to earn relevance society needs to do the opposite and embrace technology. Contrary to old thinking, technology like smart phone apps and social platforms help people become more informed.
