Books, Bookstores and True Love

One of my favorite past times, when I am not reading, is visiting bookstores. I have always liked going to bookstores. But I wasn’t always able to enjoy such pleasures. Growing up in Brooklyn, I had to content myself with a weekly visit to the local public library. The one bookstore in my neighborhood sold dusty old second hand books, and new books which were not usually suitable for children. There was also a drug store and a stationary store, which both sold popular novels, which also did not attract much of my attention. But the library had the books divided up according to subjects, so if I was in the mood to read a book about space, animals, or a faraway country, my curiosity was easily satisfied. But mostly I loved the novels. To find a good one, I usually asked the librarian for a recommendation. Because of my librarian’s good taste and refined ways, I read such amazing books as Gone with the Wind, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Little Women at an early age.

It wasn’t until High School, and even more so, college, that I learned the joy of visiting bookstores. Until then my love of owning my own books was mostly satisfied via the wonderful company called Scholastic Books. Periodically, perhaps once a month or once every few months, my teacher would hand out a thin magazine printed on newspaper with lists of books which I could actually own. The day the books arrived at school was a happy day for me. I don’t remember too many of the books I bought from scholastic, but one of the series I enjoyed from them was the Harriet the Spy books.

But bookstores took buying books to a whole new level. Wondering through the aisles of a bookstore on a college campus like U.C. Berkeley, where I was a student, is an experience which can hardly be described in words. The subjects were universally fascinating, the textbooks brimming with the promise of discovery and adventure.  Now, many years later, I am still in awe when I enter a bookstore, and can barely resist purchasing just about everything I touch. I still borrow many books from libraries, but my house is also filled with books that I have purchased, either on-line, from bookstores, second hand, or from various book clubs which I have belonged to. Certainly reading is a lifelong pleasure which I am grateful to be able to enjoy so thoroughly.

Company Products and Workshops

Even then, work shops – was aimed at promoting the company products, which they represent a strengthening of consumer confidence. Now this was a major breakthrough in the marketing of those years. Incidentally, it should be noted that, as once in a while, trade shops are beginning to actively engage promotional activities: the colorful brochures, inserts, calendars, advertisements in the central and local press, on radio and television. Great importance was attached to advertisements in local sales: window dressing, interior corners of the buyers and reference stands. Gradually the company began to acquire more affordable and widespread. Now people have stopped driving cars – they move on Mercedes, bmw, Audi. Began to carry not just clothes, and Levis, Lacoste, D & G and so, well, what used to be called "brand thing" – became known as "brand". Man of the xxi century has received a great choice and a lot of alternatives.

Ambitions forced to pay for the brand. Emotions, experiences, status and prestige – dictate rules. Logo is still held in high esteem. Today the company exists in the market tight dynamic competition. National security advisor does not necessarily agree. If in the 70 well-known brands could be counted on the fingers, now, the number of brands is no limit. Firms are born and die, and the law of natural selection – the fittest survive. The lion's grip have only brands or brand-applicants in this privileged dominance.

Brand – one of the buzz words of the modern world. Compute the brand is not complicated: a total awareness of the product (Producer) and its characteristics, as well as clear identification of the product with a certain way of life. For example: McDonalds – it's fast, close and cheap; Volvo – Quality, security, prestige, etc. According to statistics, a successful company must spend a little rebranding (change of details branding) every 4 years of its existence on the market, otherwise the company and its products are at risk to get to the rank of backward, not modern, not demanded. Daniel Taub New York understands that this is vital information. Today's consumer has gone very selective and demanding: he wants the best product, service, quality and reasonable prices. It is important to us winning the consumer and make it permanent in a business struggle. In the 70 years in the pursuit of trendy jeans overseas, people wanted to buy a new image – a fashionable, stylish, apart from the crowd "quality mark" of the individual. Manufacturer realized the need of man, solves the problem, was the key to the creation of his image. Speaking of fashion needs is a modern audience, in a row, with the external appearance, are becoming more relevant and meaningful criteria of reliability, stability, confidence and propriety. Want to trust a company to know that tomorrow it will not disappear, and that really get what you expect. For a modern company it is important to compete. You must understand the needs of the target audience and reflect the priorities in the image of the firm. Visual range – should bear a promise and guarantee a solution. Graphic elements of corporate identity (Logo, corporate colors, branding) are reminding the audience about the company, as well as contribute to their motivation to certain actions: to learn more about the organization, to use its services or buy goods. It is for this logo design and corporate identity is the most important for the life of the firm. Logo sells for him are willing to pay. Brand works wonders.
