Ninni Lindertz, Senior Marketing Strategist at Facebook Nordic, gave an inspirational talk at the “Guldägget inspirerar” event. Ninni put forward bowling as an example of how marketing used to be done. Taking a full-size bowling ball and trying to strike down as many pins as possible in one go. In a world of Social Media, bowling is not a preferred strategy. She mentioned Nike’s Write the future ad that first appeared on their Facebook page. Not being the official sponsor, one might still say that Nike won the branding championship. According to Business Week, Nike’s chief marketing officer Davide Grasso has stated that Facebook “is the equivalent for us to what TV was for marketers back in the 1960s.” The takeaway is that marketers should no longer try bowling, but going social by design. A working metaphor would be to play the pinball game.
