Why Richard Branson is a Marketing Genius

12th of April 2017

Richard Branson owns one of the most polluting companies in Europe (Virgin Atlantic airlines) yet has a green and eco

image. How on earth did he pull that off?

Well, unlike his even more climate offending collegue Michael O’Leary (Who looks like Donald Trump’s retarded cousin)

Branson is a very smart person

Journalists like him a lot and often forget to be critical. Here’s Richard’s cunning strategy:

He invites people to his luxurious Necker Island. Offer media guys such a free holiday and they start to appreciate you

very quickly

Set up a yearly prize for the best idea to reduce greenhouse gases

Invest in “environmentally friendly” fuels, even though they just are a bit less damaging for Earths Ecosystem. It sounds

good and few people will do the math    🙂

His sympathetic underdog media campaigns work wonders, especially when he lifts stewardesses

 

Meanwhile he continues to operate his fossil fuel guzzling airline. He’s got a Teflon coated personality: very hard to blame

him as he has convinced people that he is aware and actually working on solutions! Whilst flying in his private jet

As he’s been doing this succesfully for decades, it’s something only a brilliant man could do. Amazing guy!    🙂

Oink Art by Pigcasso

31st of March 2017

Pigcasso on the beach, near Cape Town. This pig has more talent than say 90% of all “artists” creating modern art

with their “installations”. Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum  is full of such crap. Loved only by the arrogant cultural elite.

Pigcasso’s work is bright, pure, colorful, original and surprisingly affordable (max 2,000 USD). More power to her!   🙂

Lucid Air Base Model Will Start at 60,000 USD

20th of March 2017

Company seems more stable than the also Chinese backed Faraday Future. Lucid’s Air entry model will start with an

EPA range of 240 miles or 384 km. Looks very promising!

Fantastic to see how such startups are challenging the old and often corrupt and/or criminal car companies! Biggest

drawback to this new AIR is that the company’s factory in Casa Grande (Arizona) has yet to be built. Deliveries will

start in mid 2019 earliest. If all goes as planned.
