Awareness Effectiveness

Bob was a local Cable Operator in China. He was networked with other cable operators in the world. One day through face book, he decided to check if ‘Tree Plantation’ advertisement by government and a big brand shoe advertisement really impacted the people. So he came up with a unique survey form question pasted in bottom of the screen

He realized that for government advertisements, responses were not coming too adequate, so he discussed with his friends and decided to give an incentive on behalf of cable operators to ones who would give response. A free movie of their choice would be shown or a free advertisement.

Soon the responses were great. He began getting sponsors for the surveys too..

He realized that though we have huge number of advertisement funds, still no way effectiveness can be measured. The Likes, Follows can give a an assured max 30% business forecast.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP THEORIES – Part 1

I got lost in so many theories of entrepreneurship that I forgot for a second if I am an entrepreneur or an investor or an academician or researcher or student.

Isn’t it only MASLOWS’ LAW which governs the need of investors, entrepreneurs, academicians, philanthropy focused individuals

Physiological  –   Small Businesses

Safety             –   Corporates and Angel Investors and Employees working in Companies

Social              –   NGOs and Social Capital Forums

Esteem            –  Venture Capitalists and Serial Entrepreneurs

Self realization –  Philanthropy

 

Where do entrepreneurs fit it?  Somewhere a layer between physiological and safety  or safety and social.
