Four brands with a brilliantly funny tone of voice

Tone of voice (ToV) is extremely important when you’re trying to build a distinctive brand. It’s the personality of your business. The thing people will remember you by.

One way to to have a memorable ToV is to be funny, but there aren’t many brands who can consistently pull it off without subsequent cringing on the audience's part.

St John Ambulance: how video marketing saved a baby’s life

Video is on the rise. In fact, it was one of the key trends highlighted in our 2016 content marketing predictions.

Frankly I’m all for it. The quality of video content has gone through the roof in the last couple of years, and one campaign that deserves a special mention came from St. John Ambulance (SJA) last year. 

The campaign, complete with the necessarily bleak title of ‘The Chokeables’ – was so good that it won the video category of the 2015 Masters of Marketing awards.

NFL: the star quarterback of content marketing

It has been a while since I dissected the content marketing efforts of a major brand, and what better subject for my first one of the year than the almighty NFL. 

The 32 NFL teams generated $11.09bn in revenue between them in 2014. The English Premier League, by comparison, turned over just £3.26bn in the same period. 

I thought it would be interesting to delve into the content marketing strategy of this enormous money-making machine to see how the channel supports its success.

Why Cillit Bang was wrong to lose Barry Scott

One of Reckitt Benckiser’s most iconic brands, Cillit Bang, recently launched a new ad campaign, moving away from fictional cult hero Barry Scott for the first time since the product launched. 

Frankly I think it’s the worst thing to happen to advertising since Captain Birdseye was traded in for a younger model or Mr Muscle was replaced by a bloke who was actually muscular, and I intend to explain why.

Five questions raised by that viral Robert Dyas ad

We so very rarely see quirky or 'marmite' video creative where brands are perceived to be taking a risk.

That's especially true in the holiday period, when most brands tend to sprinkle some glitter over their ad campaigns, or add some warm humour (daft at a push, e.g. Lidl).

This is partly why Robert Dyas' new commercial has made such a big impact, with more than 400,000 YouTube views in its first weekend.

Can companies protect their reputations from fake online reviews?

When it comes to managing their online reputations, businesses face numerous challenges.

Thanks to the popularity of online reviews and social platforms that can give average consumers a large voice, negative online buzz can cause real damage to a company and its brand.

And in the case of small businesses, negative online buzz can literally kill.
