It’s no surprise that Twitter headed the pack in Fast Company’s list of Top 10 Media for 2012. And it is a no-brainer that “The New York Times” is in the top three. But Red Bull as number two? How can an energy drink be on the same court as those other two giants?
Easy – creativity and a company founder who “knew that success would be in how you market the product as much as the product itself,” according to Red Bull Media House managing director Werner Brell.
Yes, it is important to have a good product, but having the right materials and media can provide the energy to catapault a company into the big time. One of the things that Red Bull Media does religiously is capture images of every event and project they sponsor or support. Remember the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? In today’s world of social media and visual representations, it is not enough to have a good logo or an interesting website. Companies that document their successes (and maybe even their failures!) along the way can SHOW potential customers what they have to offer.
