Marketing April May 2013 issueFROM FLOCK TO FROCK

When Australian Wool Innovation purchased the rights to the Woolmark in 2006, the brand had all but ceased to exist. Yet after 55 years it remains one of the most recognised brands in the world. We look at what makes this brand so special, and how it’s being given a new lease on life. This marks the return of Marketing mag’s brand profiles


In one of the most entertaining interviews we can remember, Jane Caro talks to Marketing about communicating with young people, how data is killing creativity (and legislation could too) and why marketers need to reconnect with their own humanity.

“We’re like a bunch of divorced men who want to go to a nightclub and pick up chicks, and we think the way to do it is to unbutton our shirt to our waist and get a comb-over…we look like a bunch of middle-aged arseholes.” 



Managing director of Showbrands, Michael Byers explores the role of product placement in Australia, focusing on the phenomenal success of Channel 10’s MasterChef. He discusses how to gain value from product placement, how to measure its impact and maximise leverage.


Tabcorp executive general marketing director, David Ginnane talks about the many hats he wears in his role, how he got there and how he has managed to unite the distinct TAB brands in Victoria and New South Wales.

And there’s plenty more where that came from:
