“Did NIKE Just Blow It?” by Phillip Stutts

Let me start this one by asking a question about your marketing: Are you connecting with your customers/clients by making them smile and endearing them to your brand? That question hit me hard when I recently saw Skechers launch a brilliant ad campaign against NIKE. This one is hilarious—check this out… On Wednesday, February 20th, the college basketball “game of…

“What Gary Vaynerchuk Told Me” by Phillip Stutts

A year ago today, my book, Fire Them Now: The 7 Lies Digital Marketers Sell…And the Truth about Political Strategies that Help Businesses Win, was released and instantly became a best seller–hitting #1 in three categories and even hitting #8 for all “Business and Investing” books on Amazon.

Let me ask you a question: How do you like your chardonnay to taste? Minerally or buttery? If you answered “buttery,” you probably know the wine that John Truchard built from the ashes of the Great Recession. Now, let me ask you a marketing question: How important do you think a great brand is to your business? This leads me back to…

“How to Win at Marketing and Investing” by Phillip Stutts

Have you heard of the #1 independent wealth management firm in America (according to Barron’s), Creative Planning, Inc.? Creative Planning is not just a unicorn in the wealth management world, it’s a rocket ship. Going from $100 million in asset management 15 years ago to $36 billion today. That’s not a typo. In fact, they are one of the most…

“Crushed It” by Phillip Stutts

Monday night was a tough moment for me. My beloved University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team lost the national championship to the Clemson Tigers in a crushing defeat, 44-16. But, I’m not here to talk football! I’m here to tell you about the INGENIOUS marketing efforts that centered around this very game. And the best part…the companies that pulled…

“Thank You” by Phillip Stutts

Let me just start off by saying — it’s been one hell of a year. I’d imagine, like me, you’ve had plenty of ups and downs, but I hope you’ve realized that with every down there’s an opportunity for growth. I promise that once you do, you’ll become grateful for it all. I know I have. This year, I have…

“How to Get Even with a Lawyer” by Phillip Stutts

Who do you hate more, politicians or lawyers? My vote goes to lawyers and it’s not even close. And who are the worst lawyers? It’s gotta be those annoying charlatans on billboards, preying on the poor and vulnerable by marketing their services to sue anyone. Why am I starting this post posing this question?

“The “Chick-fil-A Economy” — How Chick-fil-A Can Grow Your Bottom Line” by Phillip Stutts

Have you ever thought about how political candidates devise their strategies to win elections? When a political candidate comes to me, I always recommend three foundational strategies to start: make a commitment to helping others, be authentic, and market to emotion. So, how can these same strategies help business owners win? Take the famous fast-food restaurant Chick-fil-A, for example. They have implemented…

“Oh Boy, LaCroix” by Phillip Stutts

Have you experienced a major pain point recently? I mean, somewhere, someplace in your life, there is some kind of pain, right (whether it be personal, business or health)? The old adage goes, the bigger the pain, the faster you’ll take action to fix it. I get it. Not only have I been there, paralyzed to take action, but we…
