  • My Kindergartner Markets Better Than You

    by Kriselle Laran and Dave Peck

    Marketing is a fine line between sales and PR. This panel aims to focus on the rudimentary principles of marketing often overlooked by both new and established businesses. Special attention will be paid to "playground tactics" and ways that kids can influence others with far more success than adults.

    Kids have a natural instinct for marketing - they learn early in life to bring enough for everyone, to become an expert at everything, and to share just enough to make the friends but not so much where they turn others away.

    By approaching marketing like a five year old, brands can develop and maintain a strong identity and establish a role as an influencer in the industry. Applying concepts like bringing enough for everyone (appealing to a wide range of audiences), or staying out of detention (being marked as spam), brands too can become an expert at everything (establish itself as an industry leader).

    A typical five-year-old can identify common commercial jingles and name the season's popular toys. Five minutes in a playgroup can result in families having to take a trip to the toy store because of the influence of other kids on their own children.

    Kindergartners have a lot of influence. Its time to start following their lead and start learning the right way to approach marketing.
