It’s the time of year known as the “Giving Season,” when people feel more encouraged to support nonprofits, volunteer in their community or think about making an impact on the lives of those around them. At Zenzi, we believe it should be like that all year round, which is why one of our core values is “Live with Purpose.” Here are 3 ways we carry that philosophy through our business and find meaning in what we do every day.
Brand marketing is ever changing, providing unique and creative challenges and opportunities for those of us in the industry. High consumer demand creates high competition, to the tune of 500,000 new consumer products being launched each year.
Well, it’s official. If the brightly lit trees, decorations and red bows lining the aisles of Target are any indication, we’ve gone full-force into holiday mode. The biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, is coming up this week. Should you give that special someone a serving platter, a designer handbag or donate to their favorite charity? Sometimes picking the perfect gift for the holidays can feel like a guessing game. Have no fear, the Social Values gift-giving guide is back to help you make better decisions about what to buy for all those hard-to-shop-for people on your list.

Shareholders would like to believe that officers in a company always do a thorough rational cost/benefit analysis of any decision, leaving aside any personal bias, but decision makers have the same biases that all human beings do. An individuals’ values are key in understanding what motivates them in such situations, and specific value orientations are associated with specific emotional profiles that can be leveraged in enterprise sales.
With citizen journalism, the rise in content and growing competition for ad dollars, what is the future of media? This was the topic of a highly-attended session at FutureM/Inbound in Boston, an event drawing over 10,000 marketers from around the globe, with keynotes from Martha Stewart, Guy Kawasaki and others.
When discussing Zenzi’s Social Values practice with business leaders and decision makers, one question we hear a lot is:
“I think this is a fantastic idea, but how would social values apply in a B2B environment?”
Well, the short answer is that values play the exact same role in B2B marketing as in B2C. At the core of any business transaction is the relationship between the buyer and the seller, and that relationship is built on factors such as trust, comfort level, emotional response, personal history, and risk perception – all of which are influenced by the values of the company and the individuals involved.
