marketstar heroes superman

MarketStar’s resident comic book aficionado, Tim Heare, brought to our attention last week that the latest edition of the Superman comic book series (Issue 710) brought Superman within a stone’s throw (and we’re not talking a Superman’s stone throw) from the front doors of MarketStar’s corporate headquarters. The premise, as described to me by Tim, is Superman is walking across America in an effort to reconnect with truth, justice and the American way after the destruction of his home planet. Perhaps, after stopping in at Rooster’s for a delicious hummus platter and micro-brew on Historic 25th street (the comic book doesn’t say), he headed up Washington Boulevard on his way out of town when his super-human strength is required to save a woman crossing 25th Street.

As we teased here, our website has taken a step forward in evolution.
Marketstar website

The venerable Seth Godin threw down the gauntlet to all who profess to be marketers when he published his revolutionary book “Purple Cow.” His challenge to all was to be remarkable:

“Remarkable Marketing is the the art of building things worth noticing right
into your product or service. Not slapping on marketing as a last minute add on,
but understanding that if your offering isn’t remarkable, it’s invisible.”
–Seth Godin

The updates to the website come in an effort to elevate just how remarkable we feel our solutions are. Of course, that means nothing coming from us. Being remarkable requires our products and services to be worthy of your remarks. Continue reading

Creating our New Introduction Video

I’ve been an employee of MarketStar for about a year now. In my role as corporate brand manager, I’ve had the privilege to sit in a fair amount of incredibly fascinating meetings where the nuances of MarketStar’s methodology, solutions and impact on sales are discussed.

It’s also been my privilege to work in concert with our incredible marketing team to put new tools and content in place that better capture the vision and breadth of the MarketStar offering and create a compelling way to tell that story across a variety of media platforms. The weight of such an endeavor is great, and like any good book, it’s going to play out over the course of many chapters over the next few years.

We are excited to share the first of what we hope are many new and interesting ways for our employees, customers and even competition to learn about our company, what makes us fascinating and our story incredible, and as will be the theme for the upcoming year, how we work to create measurable impact on behalf of great brands around the world.
