    Episode 32 - Lighthearted fun

    The world has had some week.
    We wanted to keep it as 'normal' as possible, whatever that means.
    We touched on what we think some companies can do right now. We also threw some jokes in and some lighthearted fun at the end.
    Some tech issues we need to iron out, all remote. We'll have it sorted.
    To all of you, stay safe. Reach out if we can help.
    My personal email is dan@haarper.co and I can just have a chat if that all you need.

    Don't hoard, support local businesses where you can. Everyone needs it.

    Episode 31: This week’s business – Vegan Butcher

    Episode 31: This week’s business – Vegan Butcher

    Every Tuesday afternoon we put one of currently 35 products or services into a random generator. One of us writes the brief - then each of us has a 30-60 min brain storm to identify problem, audience, insights for brand, community, culture or social. What is our action and what does success look like for that company?

    This week’s business

    A butcher who flips to Vegan. It was a family owned business for 78 years before the owner retired and passed it onto his daughter.

    It has a solid customer base, in a popular shopping strip. It doesn't have a super typical butcher layout and everything is nicely on display with a great layout and decor in the shop.

    The new owner is pivoting to Vegan as she’s seen first hand the cruelty to animals. She wants to keep current customers as well, but isn’t fussed if they only eat one bit of vegan meat. Her ultimate goal is to change people’s behaviour.

    Episode 30: This week’s business – Office Health

    Every Tuesday afternoon we put one of currently 35 products or services into a random generator. One of us writes the brief - then each of us has a 30-60 min brain storm to identify problem, audience, insights for brand, community, culture or social.

    This week’s business

    What is it

    The project website went live last year and is called Office Health (officehealth.com.au) and our primary presence is on Instagram. The objective of Office Health is to create a network of products and services that makes Australian workplaces a healthier, pleasant place to work by:
    Asking employees about their workplace and finding out information about its health and well-being initiatives
    Researching and approaching workplaces to understand the initiatives they offer to employees
    Finding out what makes office workers happy and finding ways to impact change.

    Audience

    Employees: people who work in the office who are looking to live a healthier lifestyle
    Haven't thought much about their health and well-being
    Employers of small to medium-sized companies in Australia
    Employers who can make decisions (budget holders) on behalf of their companies to make orders or bookings for items such as snack boxes or speaker presentations

    Why?

    Reports show that health, well-being and wellness in the workplace are getting more important and receiving more attention globally and in Australia. There are currently businesses in Australia that:
    deliver fruit and snack boxes allied health professionals who do mobile visits to workplaces offering remedial massages, physio services etc
    wellness speakers being hired to give presentations in workplaces.

    There is a business opportunity to create a space where our two groups of audiences can go to manage their health and well-being needs when it comes to their health in the office. Currently, the Office Health website is a landing page directing users to complete a survey so we can gauge the audience and the effectiveness of health and wellness in their workplaces. The site can potentially expand to become a platform for users to find out information about the state of health and wellness in the Australian office landscape, see lists of health and services providers that can do office visits or more.

    Competitors

    We can potentially look into providing a listing on our website of Australian companies similar to Glassdoor, focusing on company data around health and wellness.

    Episode 29: This week’s business – Trunk

    We’re doing things a bit different in 2020.

    Instead of just talking about news and views in the marketing and advertising space, we thought we’d challenge ourselves a bit more.

    So, in 2020, we’ll be giving you a, sort of, insight into a round table chat about a product or service, that we’ve made up, identified or want to explore more. The premise is this.

    Every Tuesday afternoon we put one of currently 35 products or services into a random generator. One of us writes the brief - then each of us has a 30-60 min brain storm to identify problem, audience, insights for brand, community, culture or social.

    Service: Rental Baby Clothes
    Audience: Parents, primarily mothers of kids aged 0-3 years. 

    We have clothes that traditionally suit the above years. All clothes are sourced from reputable suppliers and adhere to all Australian Standards. We do not stock nappies, shoes or socks. Nor do we stock hats. This is for hygiene reasons. We operate out of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. We have 1 warehouse in each. All cleaning is done off site. We want to increase our subscriber base across Australia, with no plans to go global yet.
    We want to do this via paid advertising on social and outdoor media. We will handle baby shows and expo's internally.
