Example text

Then he had himself strapped to the mast so that he could not get free. Thus he heard the song—it drove him momentarily crazy—but he didn’t crash on the rocks and die. So let’s say that you heard the siren song of Manhattan. You saw the World Trade Center. You went to Trump Tower. You caught a play on Broadway. You experienced the thrill of a lifetime barreling down Third Avenue in a cab. Sure, you were thrilled to hear the siren song of New York City, but more importantly, your crew didn’t. You had put wax in their ears, and after hearing the siren song, you safely sailed on, the song becoming a distant memory.

This chapter may seem a little silly to you. After all, every company knows who they are, right? Wrong. Even the mega-companies can lose their identity along the way. How about General Motors? Roger Smith, GM’s chairman at the time, seemed to be fashioning General Motors as more of a holding company than a company that builds cars and trucks. The car and truck business suffered. Any business is lured by sirens, and under the spell of the siren song, any company can lose the focus of what they are and who their market is.

I use many examples from the world of marketing a sports team to illustrate my principles of jump-start marketing. Does this mean you have to be a sports fan to appreciate these marketing principles? Of course not. Don’t mistake this book as a sports marketing book. After reading this book, you won’t be able to run away and join a pro sports team. What you will be able to do is take the ideas and principles of jump-start marketing and quickly adapt them to your particular field. If you are indeed a sports fan, I think you’ll agree that the examples in this book are more fun to read—and the ideas can be more adaptable—than if I were writing about how to market steel or fertilizer, or sweat socks.
