Old the readme is a white shirt, and the team a few degrees collective despair

note: hunting cloud like PPG from star aura to rapidly falling, founded by the old man also stepped into the footsteps, gather together after a circle of lively old began to more reflection, product manager, contraction strategy assembled product, no longer blundering, look at the reflection of his latest summary.

oral: aged (vancl (Beijing) technology co., LTD. CEO)

blog world | li, finishing

in 2011, when every guest the most lively, more than thirteen thousand people in the company, light the leadership of President level there SanSiShiWei, that is in crisis. Now, every guest is only less than 300 people, do the core team shirt is only seven, but business is running very smoothly. I wonder, at ordinary times before so many people are doing?

in retrospect, the company the more lively, burning money along the more people. Every guest once in order to achieve the purpose of the annual sales of 10 billion, backward need to expand the number of categories, how many SKU (stock), need how many people to take on this business. According to the principle of one tube of seven people, company has dozens of vice President, director of LiangSanBaiWei will be.

at that time, I also revel in the busy, put all the energy in how to manage the more than ten thousand people, but don’t know real management should be the value of the company.

in the height of the man, I began to faint feel wrong, but I don’t know where is wrong. First real point wake me up, let me thoroughly reflect every guest mode, is my good brother lei jun for many years. Lei jun and I were born in 1969, his 8 months younger than me. In the past 17 years, we work together, a lot of communication. Because of the peer relationship, we on the life and soul of feeling also has a lot of synchronization.

lei jun and I first met in 1998, he and I are 29 years old, I have just started review weekly, he just do the general manager of golden hill software. Two years later, lei jun invited me started joyo together; Sold to amazon joyo, lei jun to me I have started by the web and online investment and Suggestions.

2007 and lei jun are very important to me. Jinshan lei jun this year left, I began to prepare for every guest of startup. Lei jun to jinshan deep emotions, left for the business for many years, to give him the pain of it is self-evident that many of the comments that the real reason why the outside world. The pain let lei jun to the jedi rebirth and start again, but since then set out to be so beautiful, others did not think of.

from 2007 to 2010, lei jun brewing process of millet, in business and brought him a huge increase in one’s mind. Lei jun so want to through a lot of things, such as how to achieve a product brand, and adhere to the focus, acme, word of mouth. In the lei jun awakening time, but I lost in that dramatic growth and blundering expansion. Lei jun was carrying a bag filled with dozens of mobile phones, excitedly told me about the difference between these phones, I am not. When every guest collapse, I deeply discuss the future of every guest with him, and his experience painful process, I didn’t realize how deep his change.

in June 2013, I with lei jun in every guest to drink a wine, chat very unpleasant, talk about not approach. Call a spade a spade, lei jun said that this kind of blind expansion is the practice of last time, the future companies will like millet, guided by the demands of users, to brand with product. His words were a great stimulus to me, I think from the user’s growth to forecast growth of the business, in order to decorate the thinking of SKU is also established. I thought to myself, what do you do millet developed, JiDui I don’t have to.

this conversation with, I really to convince them to lei jun is in two months. On August 29, 2013, me to anger, looking for his visit every guest. I emptied the half floor, hang that all of the samples. When lei jun in hundreds of hanger and I passed by, I feel like shit, because this is my first time to see so many real products. I am frustrated to find that no one is take shots. Lei jun says, he feels not standing in a brand shop, but the department store market.

it makes me fall completely, after, lei jun and I had a long talk for seven or eight hours at a time, seven, eight times. Insufficient focus, lei jun says, “extreme a mundane guest is the cause of the problem.” He give me that offer “to gross margin, organization structure, KPI” three transformation direction. Lei jun ask me, you can first concentrate on just doing a basic product? Shirt, I think the most basic, also can embody the technical content, the shirt is the most basic in the white shirt.

I didn’t think to do a white shirt is difficult to the man has done 14 million shirts. But once you begin to focus on and take a hard look at problems came.

in 2007, the product I also participated in the discussion. After the second half of 2009, they say “old you don’t know to wear, let alone the opinion”. I really don’t understand, and I got a lot of traditional garment industry people, yourself to let go.

when I want to seriously do a white shirt, and I ask the professional, want to use what fabric, what version of the model, how to make, no one can say. Stylist says, a white shirt with nothing to do, why not design, pattern of design and color more? – now, they have all left that basic.

in the past year, three-quarters of the time I was not in Beijing. In order to do a good job in a white shirt, I began to densely arranged on a business trip, to meet suppliers, for the factory. When I see suppliers, I didn’t know the past how I made the mistake, they told me that they used to Beijing to visit me, but I was too “drag”, busy watching the PPT, don’t have time to see them. They can only deal with every guest grass-roots staff, in order to get orders, entertain them singing a bath.

these things could hear my hair stand on end. It is conceivable that every guest has been filled with many coincided with a man before. How to let these people get away as soon as possible? A malicious action to me, I no longer maintain that false prosperity, the headquarters from west bicyclic YongGui center upscale office moved to the far south rings as well, who can’t adjust to leave at any time.

most people feel quickly drop in moving and psychological impact. Before moving, that more than 5000 people, after the move, I thought to is good, more than one thousand people ended up to more than 300 people. When every guest to focus and extreme route, I found that those who need it can be so little. This process like peeling Onions, more peel more uncomfortable, the stripping the cruel, discovered before we make the strip much coincided with a matter and coincided with a person.

once every guest shirt department alone more than 200 people, now is responsible for the shirt has a team of only seven people, their main job is to design, version type, fabric, documentary, the shirt is, in fact, I’m product manager. We make sure the quality in xinjiang as a leading producer of long-staple cotton fabrics, next, we were left in the white shirt design problem of pain, no matter what to do, even if it is copied, can not copy the temperament of a big white shirt.

before and after the Spring Festival in 2014, the team’s collective despair, at one point I want to give up. I am supposed to south Vietnam will visit Japan shirt master JiGuoWu, before seeing him, happened to be our mood lowest. After down too much, I’m not very hopeful to make the trip. Because I’m depressed, everyone don’t want to talk on the plane. The hotel in Hanoi, I let the team of people go to the south mindset JiGuoWu, think on me in the past. At that time I already ready to fly back to Beijing.

team take this depression in the south, also experienced dramatically broke down, lost along the way such as drift from place to place. Then, this kind of lost mood suddenly enlightened the next day. JiGuoWu is a true ace. What did he do in Japan for more than 30 years shirt, service companies have 120 years of history. He told us a lot of the secrets of the design details. Add a half under the collar lining, for example, lets the neckline crisp; The sleeve choke out 6 fold, with joint arm; How to design the shirt different fillet to conform to the Europe and America or loose or cultivate one’s morality shirt style.

Japanese teacher on the production process of excellence let us admire and admit defeat. For example, we used to study why clothes to soak in the water will produce floating hair, all the people. Japanese teacher let us first look at the clothes when dyeing machine speed, if the speed too fast, can produce hairiness; Speed too slow, gloss is not enough. Teacher told us a callback, until the optimum result.

these seemingly simple question one by one, finally fundamental blundering are made in China. Before we have challenged products, partners took out a variety of quality inspection report to me, said manufacturing meet the national standard, European standard, Japanese standard, but conform to the standard and user experience are two different things. These things made me realise that I used to produce the garments are rubbish.

when I began to do that, then I say unequivocally, future successful international brands in China only luxury goods, consumer market will be occupied by a Chinese brand, uniqlo is bound to lose in China. Seven years later, uniqlo and Gap has march into in China. This is the greatest punishment to made in China.

do white shirts this year, I want to give up many times, almost all the people around you also have wavered. But as a leader, I’ll give up is finished. Luckily, running help me insist on down. Now I need to run more than 10 kilometers a day, running the release of dopamine great help on my mood, once you start running, you will find, or continue to run, or life die; Either sat sigh, or persist become so healthy.

and LeiJunZe mentally gave me a decisive support, in my future a puzzle, he battle righteousness before shareholders backed me, investment every guest again in the crisis. He said on the phone one evening and old even in the dream I think you can do it. Two more than forty years old, late at night to fall in love. That person also said that both of us feeling they can’t find the right words to describe.

lei jun says, getting the product to have a firm belief. Good products will grow up in word of mouth slowly accumulated, and then one day in an outbreak. Lei jun once asked me, you said that nokia phones their boss will use? The height of the man, I’m wearing a Prada and ermenegildo Zegna. Now, lei jun and I wear that T-shirt and jeans and spent the whole summer, think about feel incredible.

every guest temporarily no further financing plan, someone ask me when will the remanufacturing like “every object” hot spots. I said, I am good at marketing brand, but I don’t want to deliberately make what event, then a mundane process of accumulation of word of mouth.

I hope in the future, you want to buy a shirt or change garments according to the ultralight down jacket, can think of that, that’s enough. That uniqlo is a step towards success. I don’t want to go to, I gather together, have seen many of the traditional company, finally they are all gone.

In too many companies, content marketing has become mechanization, just released some wooden articles, incomplete survey, collect some data from a large number of e-books, infographics, white paper and Internet discussion content.

is the direct cause of the above situation, the marketers are afraid of backward advantage content distribution plan, this fear will lead to the sharp increase in the content, the number means that the content of empty, thus resulting in embarrassment, content marketing which has more than not jing, user suffer, marketers are more injustice.

every day, there will be a variety of content marketing is filled with the network, so that any kind of content marketing is one of the success rate of only 3720 points, or lower.

may have marketers will say “this is not our fault.

 Content Marketing

“attack of the clones” : the content of the wanton use, passive and marketing

at present, in view of the content marketing mode of the battle of life and death of the two core problems.

first of all, most of the content is a one-off. User, as long as a look at this part of content is out of date. For marketers, want to close to the user, need to release new content, so they will do their best to update. But, under the condition of the content is limited, and it is difficult to use different words to describe the same thing. So frankly speaking, even if the large number of content marketing and update frequently, but didn’t say anything, the fact is so cruel.

second, most of the content of the consumption is passive. User or reading, or watching, or listening to the content, but all of this requires time and effort. And the user’s time and energy are limited, once feel vacuous boring, will quit reading. What’s more, in the user’s line of sight drawn before, caocao such a large number of e-books is also available for users to browse and network research content for users to kill time.

in fact, the above two problems through each other. The user has in many ways huge one-time, the content of the passive jamming, avoid like the plague. Therefore, the effectiveness of the content marketing has also been gradually weakened, but there are still many marketers use the means of content marketing is to continue to release more content, it is a vicious circle.

ray of hope: the emergence of the interactive content marketing

however, in the middle of a vast content marketing market appeared a glimmer of light, the interactive content marketing.

interactive content marketing contains the participatory elements, content is not a simple passive consumption, but the user include come in. So there are many kinds of interactive form, such as small, games, questionnaire, evaluation, workbooks, configuration program, calculator, competitions and so on. There are other graphic interactive version of type, such as e-books, fashion magazines, infographics, help users to operate in the form of content rendering.

it all goes well, interactive content would seem to be interesting, but it is not just fun. As is known to all, since the ancient times of education research tells us that “genuine knowledge comes from practice”, to put an ebook on the user’s computer users carefully designed for a small test could be more effective, more quick help user key knowledge absorption, and certainly more interesting.

in addition, interactive content marketing also resolve the “one-off” dilemma.

first, interactive content marketing provides various forms of content rendering and display space, to the user to convey the new idea. This is not just a self-conscious form “in its form, but a really different material reading, express way. For example, the return on investment (ROI) white paper with a calculator function, returns to demonstrate different circumstances; The bittorrent client with an assessment tool to compare view; Can also through the little game sample test to make some common pitfalls.

second, important interactive content with recycling value. Again is not like other people reading your blog posts so simple, but is the interactive content with calculator and configuration tools to users with the repeated use value. This is why content marketing planning, Jay Baer said “woori marketing” (YOUTILITY), he said in his book u-real marketing, “today’s marketing must get rid of the framework of to sell things, to think about how to help customers, for practical use”. That is to say, the interactive content marketing content before the one-sided pursuit of reverse to the value of income level, a truly useful and interactive content of reusable assets, long-term dividends can be obtained.

content marketing: “this is not we need to guide data”

for many marketers, content marketing and potential customer development process constitutes the mobile platform sales system. Is one of the most common type, issued a “limited edition”, like “out of print books,” and “exclusive report”, “new online commentary” and so on, then under content marketing form, to get the visitor’s name, work unit, the information such as email address.

the majority of users of this type of content to see the first reaction is: “this is a trap”.

because in most cases, the so-called “limited edition” end point in a watch found nothing, not originally a few words can tell information exaggeration to lengthy cumbersome ebook, advertising is the explicit euphemistically called “objective research”. Even if in the future marketers don’t want to release such information, the content of the infamous but already save users psychological line of defense.

instead, interactive content marketing through a free value-added model, can overcome the shortcomings. Makes it possible for potential users of the obstacles to the application of content, and assessment tools, the use of calculators or configuration program, there is no any other form. So that the user can immediately find the value of interactive content, and thus established its product reputation and customer trust.

once the customer pull in after, can continue to provide for the user to choose upgrade options, in order to get more potential customer information. For example, in the end of the interactive content evaluation items, can add the personalized recommendation according to user’s score. After the integration of these functions in good, can realize the incredible high conversion rate.

however, interactive content marketing is not only a typical boot record. Passive content marketing, only tell marketers users where is the point of interest, and customers like presentation of information. And interactive content marketing, marketers can get a lot of information from the user’s participation behavior, including the user how to do evaluation, calculator what situation calculus returns, as well as the final option in the configuration program, and so on.

content marketing is to contact record mixed with ambiguous orientation points to marketers, often rejected, “this is not what we want is oriented data”. And through interactive content marketing, marketers can obtain abundant qualification profile and data, then, sales staff can focus on the correct potential users, for their needs special response, like a psychics magic.

interactive content tomorrow: “you are my cloud computing platform”

until recently, interactive content marketing increasingly higher requirements of user customization development, so that the development cost is higher, more time-consuming, establish and maintain technical complexity increases.

however, marketing technology companies are now developing a new generation of cloud-based tool, let not the programmer or unskilled marketers to easily make IT resource application of interactive content, these companies have Ceros, ion interactive, SnapApp, Wishpond etc. And they develop the application of content, not just the Facebook, but have a soft touch web experience, were far more advanced than you might think, can be run on any device.

The content of the

this is an excellent marketing model, through the interactive content marketing, we can reverse the current content marketing dilemma, and then turn to a good beginning, really useful user experience will be inspired and entertainment vast potential users.

We can make with haier U + soil, why “asymmetric cooperation”?

weibo @ ultra micro letter o Internet luo (luochaotmt)

recently, soil science and haier U + platform, intelligent household opening laboratory in Beijing for developers to provide the necessary research and development of creative design, equipment, technology, environment and other resources to support. The cooperation in the intelligent hardware unprecedented: haier is the old hardware giant, soil is just emerging entrepreneurial teams, is to forget; Strength is sea er home appliance household, soil is wearable devices as the main team. Can achieve this “asymmetric cooperation” and intriguing.

smart home each dry lack of standard

smart hardware is a system, rather than isolated item. The system can sense the environment and the user, connectivity, linkage type of response, giving people more comfortable, simple and smart life. But the most intelligent hardware only can be connected to the Internet, by mobile phone App remote control, can put some data synchronization to the cloud, in addition, there is no much practical significance, is far from intelligent, core reason lies in the intelligent hardware players is numerous, the Internet giant, as between the entrepreneur and hardware company, there is no uniform standard Can’t interconnectivity between each other, exchange data sharing and service, do not give users a good product and service experience.

so, the most important is intelligence household industry has been a lack of a strong platform to provide a DE facto standard or protocol, let different vendor products can be based on the standard and platform for connectivity. As the largest home appliance giant haier, to intelligent hardware transformation and the most active.

haier launched in March 2014 U + intelligent life open platform, U + intelligent life open platform is a set of intelligent household standard, through an open SDK, API interface, and cloud platform can not only make haier can interconnectivity between its intelligent home appliances products, also can let other third-party equipment and services to join U + platform, realize the connectivity, data sharing and service.

choose the soil of deep significance is haier more to bring the entrepreneurs

U + intelligent life platform for haier has a future. In addition to make haier has its own intelligent household products users have a better experience, real intelligence, will also help haier to build an ecological, begin at the bottom of the intelligence and physical league in the world in the future they hold. Haier U + intelligent life open platform landing, you need the support of other hardware player.

relative to the Internet giant, entrepreneurs are more likely to be “win”. Very simple, baidu, jingdong and ali player has a corresponding intelligent household health and intelligence platform, to a certain extent can think they compete with haier U + is relationship. Haier joint laboratory, do U + select soil, it is because of U + need close relationships with entrepreneurs, haier should bow humbly and dimension is not so big players in hand, flexible learning entrepreneurs play and create customer’s mind.

soil is well-known wearable equipment start-up, because a skip events in the industry has a wide range of visibility. Unknown, soil, main members of the team is mostly hardware geek. Wang Wei had a meal with the author revealed that wish to build a lab. Some pit, one is the soil, meet some frustration experience sharing for entrepreneurs, 2 it is to want to use the geek promotes the communication of commercialization and share in a guest creative thinking, 3 it is with an open mind to the connectivity between different hardware products, rather than each to each.

soil laboratory, want to do, haier U + want through opening laboratory to entrepreneurs to join U + ecology, exploring an effective ground model, coupled with both advocate open mind, against a closed ecological system, success will come together.

smart home are not isolated, and wearable, intelligent, healthy, intelligent vehicle

soil strength is wearable device, main product is based on the smart watch e-ink screens, haier U + position open platform for the wisdom of life, haier’s strength lies in the user’s home. Look do not have too big to do both. But the haier’s appetite is bigger, do is intelligent life, covering all aspects. It must be out of the scope of household, because part of family life for only one time – although it is the most time.

smart home is not isolated, the future control of smart home interactive terminal, not only the phone, will also have a watch, bracelet. Also, since they can interact with household, naturally, some with intelligent car or something intelligent hardware interaction. Or go back to a problem: connectivity, not only the electrical appliances to connectivity between, all intelligent hardware connectivity requirements, the physical world will be a huge of sensor network connectivity.

but watch has extraordinary significance: because you can completely replace the intelligent hand ring, and close-fitting associated with people, watches can have interactive terminal, information equipment, data upload and personal ID identification equipment himself in the watch the future users can use voice control lighting, home appliances, automobile, can receive reminder from various devices, other devices can use the cloud for watch data-aware user who is it? Where are now? What kind of personalized needs?

U + cooperation with soil, haier, is the traditional hardware companies and a geek, entrepreneurial team cooperation, is also a smart home giant cooperation with wearable rookie, final purpose is to promote more products achieve interconnectivity in lab. It’s not hard to guess in haier U + with soil, after the successful cooperation, there will be more intelligent hardware team will receive a haier an olive branch.
