At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective. This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign.  There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.For further information:Kalay MaistryCommunications ManagerInternational Marketing Council of South AfricaTel: +27 11 483 0122Margaret DingaloDirector: Stakeholder RelationsInternational Marketing Council of South AfricaTel: +27 11 483 0122last_img read more

The age of 4K is here and Panasonic is boasting it’s first consumer grade 4K camera with the GH4. Along with a myriad of other features the GH4 is definitely going to make a splash in the world of indie filmmaking.The Lumix GH4As stated above the GH4 offers the first native 4K video in a Lumix camera but as a filmmaker you aren’t going to get 4:2:2 straight from the GH4. To achieve a color profile higher than 4:2:0/8-bit you need to buy the additional powered dock, a.k.a. the DMW-YAGH. From the dock you can run an SDI video signal to your favorite recording device. The dock also features 2 XLR audio inputs and gain knobs for external recording, allowing you to record professional quality audio without having to buy an external audio recorder, like the H5.Panasonic recommends using a class 3 UHS SD card to get the 100Mbps transfer speed needed for the 4K video. They also upgraded the GH4 to have zebras to monitor peaking and color/audio signal referencing. Notably the sensor has also been improved to support a wider dynamic range and a decrease in rolling shutter (this is somewhat due to the mirror-less system used in the GH4).The auto-focus features have been improved to be faster than ever before, partly due to the new 49-point AF system and the hybrid between contrast auto-focus and depth from defocus.In addition to the bigger updates, Panasonic has added in dial locks and upped the shutter durability rating to 200,000 cycles.Pricing and AvailabilityPanasonic has just recently announced the price of the GH4 with the body being $1,699.00 and the DMW-YAGH going for $1,999.00. This low price makes it very affordable to anyone looking to get high-quality 4K video.It will be ready for shipping on May 5, 2014.

Inheriting Your Customer’s Sales Problem

first_img Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook! Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now Some companies press their suppliers for lower prices because it is their business model. They drive prices down to drive cost out of the business and pass those savings on to their customers. This is what Walmart does in the United States, and Aldi does the same in Europe. If you are a supplier, you know this going into a deal, and you know it’s all about pennies.But other companies focus on cutting their supplier’s prices because they have a sales problem.Sometimes, when a company doesn’t have the revenue they need, they start making cuts. They start by cutting anything non-essential to the business, then they work on their suppliers. They have to find money somewhere, and it is easier to push your suppliers to cut their prices than it is to build an effective sales organization.As a supplier, vendor, or strategic partner, you inherit their sales problem. Their sales problem becomes your problem as soon as they ask for a price concession.Other times, a company will grow their top line very well, but they’ll spend too much money to deliver that top line growth. Sometimes they spend too much on client acquisition, things like sales and marketing. But more often they spend too much money executing and delivering for their customers. Their profit margins don’t match the value that they are creating for their customers, and that is oftentimes how they won the business.As someone who supplies them with the things they buy, they hand you down their sales problem. Because they can’t make money, they need you to lower your price to help them correct the fact that they have under-priced their offerings.You can always know if a company has a lowest-price business model. But it is difficult to tell what kind of a sales organization your prospect might be. They can measure their revenue in the billions and still have a revenue problem caused by poor sales. You can find companies that appear to be doing well only to later discover they aren’t profitable because they are winning business at prices that don’t support the business.If your customer has a sales problem of their own, you will end up inheriting that problem. Eventually.last_img read more
