How To Market Coffee with a Coffee Advertising Strategy That Makes Drinking Coffee An Event
Before we met people for coffee or had coffee breaks there were a few coffee roasters but no coffee shops. So the Joint Coffee Trade Publicity Council on Wall Street, New York decided to run an advertising campaign.
The year was 1921 and N.W.Ayers and Son of Philadelphia were commissioned to write the copy and get adverts running in newspapers throughout the country.
But they went further than just advertising coffee. They created a movement that has gone around the world.
Very old fashioned way of doing things - reflected in his own website (not modern and broken links, images don't load)... went elsewhere and much more forward thinking... Questionable legitimacy of the other reviews posted.
Stefan is rightly known as “The Marketing Magician”. He has an uncanny ability to conjure effective marketing seemingly ‘out of thin air’. But unlike most magicians he’s only too happy to reveal the secrets behind his magic. His enthusiasm is infectious and he’s generous with his time and attention. So if you want to get to grips with the tricks of the marketing trade, Stefan’s your man.
Stefan seems insatiably curious about how our experiences affect the way we interact with companies; what attracts us to them. And he turns this all into original marketing ideas. Plus, he's quite the gentleman. Really glad to know him!
Stefan is chock full of ideas - but more than that, they are GOOD ideas. In the space of one hour he gave me what is probably a year's-worth of implementation. Yet, it's all stuff I can do myself if I wish - no voodoo to be contracted to consultants I cannot manage and whose results I cannot reliably measure.
I have just completed reading Stefan’s book on the marketing of hospitality. I found it outstanding from both the strategic point of view Stefan adopted and the many practical suggestions he offered. And his wonderful, slightly quirky self shone through, which added delight to the entire experience. Check Molly’s Place, A Bar & Grill, in Grenada, MS a year from now and see how we are doing!
I have had the pleasure of working with Stefan on two occasions and was thoroughly impressed both times. His marketing knowledge is excellent and he has the ability to execute a task to a high standard all the way through to completion.
I've had the privilege of working with Stefan on two book projects, and I have also benefited from his marketing wisdom in a private mastermind group. The man is a consummate professional, and he backs it up with a hilarious sense of humor. I highly recommend him.
Stefan is very thorough in his research and understanding of a clients requirements. He has a proven record of delivering comprehensive strategic marketing plans that address education / FE issues critical to the ongoing success of a college. I would recommend considering Stefan for any project that involves strategic planning, communication or digital marketing.
