 Selling out: does packaging with a point of difference equal more sales?

At the moment, it is near impossible to escape the rugby madness that has hypnotised the nation. Many of our beloved products from the supermarket have turned black, one of which being Anchor’s milk bottles, which turned the shade in support of the All Blacks. Dow Design provided us some insights on what makes good product design, and what sells.

A rifle alongside a shotgun: Jeremy O’Brien outlines the role TVNZ Ondemand will play in 2015

When StopPress recently asked players in the ondemand and subscription video on-demand (SVOD) market to share streaming stats on their top ten most popular shows, TVNZ was the only one that shared official numbers. And the reason for this is largely down to how successful the platform has been over the course of the last year. With an average of over five million streams per month, TVNZ has a great base to build on, and the broadcaster's head of sales and marketing Jeremy O'Brien believes the service will offer more to both advertisers and viewers in 2015.

Blurred lines: MediaWorks embraces channel agnosticism by merging direct sales teams

About a week after APN opened the door to cross-channel collaboration across its media properties, MediaWorks announced the conflation of its radio and TV direct sales teams.The unified team will be led by Paul Hancox, who has been appointed to the newly created position of commercial director of MediaWorks Radio and TV. Hancox will also work closely with The Radio Bureau and their agency team, ensuring the Radio agency business is well aligned with its TV and interactive counterparts, led by Nicole Jones and Graeme Underwood, respectively. And while initial speculation suggested that this move came as a knee-jerk reaction to the moves made at APN, the MediaWorks TV director of sales and marketing Liz Fraser countered such claims.

From debauched swindler to in-demand sales spinner: an audience with The Wolf of Wall St.

Jordan Belfort is, as The Independent wrote, "among the most infamous crooked businessmen in recent history". And, as Martin Scorcese's movie The Wolf of Wall St showed, he was also one of the most debauched. But after serving time following his 2004 conviction for defrauding clients out of more than $200 million, he claims to have seen the error of his ways and has reinvented himself as a motivational speaker specialising in sales techniques. Jenene Crossan dances with the Wolf.

Patagonia takes stand against all-consuming consumption

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are big days for retailers in the States—and, judging by some of the figures this year, the discounts offered up by all and sundry certainly got consumers to prise open their wallets. In times of economic stagnancy, the level of consumption is often used as a barometer for recovery. But, as this fairly brave print ad for Patagonia that ran in the New York Times shows, maybe less consumption is a good thing. Or perhaps it's just a bit of cheeky reverse psychology in action.

Survey shows dip in sales and marketing salaries

The Auckland Chamber of Commerce has just released its 2010 salary survey and, given the economic events of the last few years, it's not a huge surprise to find that Auckland business is still "running on lean" and—block your ears children—sales and marketing salaries have dropped. So check out the rates so you know whether you should cackle maniacally with Scrooge McDuck-esque glee as you roll about on your bed with wads of cash, or go crying to the boss about not getting paid enough.
