BlackBerry 10 Marketing is the Feature of RIM
The Future or RIM, Can't edit the title. Sorry for this mistake
I don't know whats going on but to me if there was no CrackBerry there would be no BlackBerry today. 1st How come I see more Tweets from Crackberry getting re-tweeted by BlackBerry?, This should be the other way around. I don't use twitter but my wife who runs a social media company knows all the social sites, She Knows Kevin by his tweets and when I mention something about BlackBerry she seems to already know Via Tweets from Kevin and Not BlackBerry.
I saw a tweet from Blackberry like Friday and nothing was posted till monday, BlackBerry was tweeted asking if the marketing team goes home on the weekends? (They never responded to that, but if you tweet walmart on a bad note they still get back to you) its very simple in my Books, Its Social Media and Marketing.
Apple Ruled with marketing, they had some crazy adds showing on TV. Everyone knew the PC vs Mac commercials, Then people went out and bought the new thing they saw on TV, Not necessarily because of how fast and light it was but because it was on TV, There is A LOT of influence with marketing, I have friends who don't even know what a processor is, they just buy whats "IN" at the time, Now they say they want that new Samsung Galaxy, Notice the change? Apple has cooled off on the Adds and now Samsung has the Killer Ads, BlackBerry Needs a NEW marketing team, Crackberry shows MORE support for BlackBerry then they do for their own company, to me that's crazy.
BlackBerry 10 is HUGE, why is it still silent? (Wake the Sleeping Giant already)Do u remember the Droid commercial when we didn't even know what droid was? (was it a phone or something else?) the commercial didn't offer much but at the end of it we saw the words Coming Soon, it left you guessing and excited, Like what is it? I infact went straight to the computer go google what it was, I was curious enough to get up and research it. (The power of Ads) I would love to see an ad like a Black Screen appear like my TV shut off then see the BB Symbol and the words Re-Designed Re-Engineered Re-Invented BLACKBERRY 10 Coming soon then fade, Something like that.
Till today People still think BlackBerry is going Bankrupt, BY NOW everyone should be in the mind state that there is a new BlackBerry around the corner, Where are the signs ???? is Rim really going to wait till Jan 30th? They need to let everyone know that a launch is happening, why not a commercial on that "Join us January 30th for the New BB10. RIM has an amazing product BUT they need to market it correctly, The Bold 9900 I saw a solid 5 commercials, REALLY? we are weeks away and I still am yet to see that change happen in that department, I have signed up with BlackBerry alerts (you know when you get help from BlackBerry and they ask you to check this box if you want to be informed of upcoming info/news/events) I have not seen 1 BlackBerry 10 email, NOTHING, we have seen an ad pop up but thats it.
RIM will just be another OS if they don't make that marketing splash. Most of the world is influenced by ads and they don't even know it, There are more people who buy a phone because a sales person or friend recommended it or they saw it on TV, then there are people like us who visit sites like Crackberry and Phonescoop and really compare features to features and just enjoy the funny ads and in now way influenced by them.
I am a HUGE BlackBerry fan, This is not bashing, I want RIM to succeed more then anything. Im sick of the BlackBerry insults and companies leaving (yahoo) they left BlackBerry so I left them, I will never visit another yahoo site again they loose as well lol. I am A True dedicated Blackberry Fan 8703 (2007). I love the changes they have made but I'm sorry that Marketing team has to go sit with Mike and Jim and watch RIM shine with some MORE new faces..... GOOOOOO RIM.... less then 3 weeks 2 go
