Building your brand: A guide for B2B SaaS Companies

Recently, I took a new job at a much larger organisation than im used to. Dubsat is a 10-15 year old company (I don’t actually know when it began) with 110 staff in 9 offices across the world.

Fear and anxiety driving consumerism

The AdNews Agency of the year awards were on last week and in reading the results in the latest issue of AdNews there really was some great work produced in 2010. The most notable I thought, was Happy Soldiers campaign for Tontine, the Australian market leader in pillows. The problem Tontine faced was that there market was stagnating and their products lifecycle was too long, consumers were too attached to their pillows and refused to change them. Enter Happy Soldiers and the 'Dated Pillows' campaign. Happy soldiers research showed them that a whole ecosystem of bacteria, dead skin cells and fungi...
