A little about Nike's marketing strategy. Nike didn’t build its loyal fan base by harping on its iconic waffle shoes.
In fact, Nike’s ads rarely, if ever, mention their products at all.
What their ads do, and do well, is induce emotion in the consumer through ‘emotional branding’. Each ad is carefully crafted to evoke particular feelings and needs in the consumer that can only be satisfied by Nike products.
It does this by playing up the traditional narrative of a hero who works hard to overcome adversity, ultimately emerging victorious against a terrible foe.
But it isn’t a literal enemy being fought in this case. Nike takes the analogy to a level far more relatable: the ‘terrible foe’ is the voice in your head that tells you, “You can’t”. To that, the organization says: “Just do it.” #marketing#markets#amc#nike#nikemarketing#armenianmarketingclub

Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has gone public with his belief that cryptocurrency offers an improved alternative to conventional money.
In a podcast interview with investment firm ARK Invest on Feb. 19, Musk talked about his views on the future of his companies and responded specifically to questions about his thoughts on cryptocurrency.
To that end, Musk said he believes bitcoin’s structure “is quite brilliant,” adding: “It [cryptocurrency] bypasses currency controls. … Paper money is going away. And crypto is a far better way to transfer values than a piece of paper, that’s for sure.” That said, Musk also pointed out aspects of the industry that are keeping his companies from getting involved in using and applying the technology.
Speaking to the downsides of cryptocurrency, in the case of bitcoin for instance, he said he believes its use of a large computing network to secure its ledger is “computationally energy intensive.” He added that, for a company that aims to boost the adoption for sustainable energy, it may not be “a good use of Tesla’s resources to get involved in crypto.” “It’s very energy intensive to create bitcoin at this point,” he said.
Notably, this is not the first time that Musk had made remarks on cryptocurrency. In October last year, he made a mysterious tweet about buying bitcoin that whipped up speculation on social media, though he now says it was a joke.
Musk has been impersonated many times on Twitter by scammers who have tried to use his profile’s likeness in crypto “give-away” schemes, a development he noted in his remarks. “Bitcoin and ethereum scammers were so rampant on Twitter I decided to join in and I said at one point wanna buy some bitcoin?” he quipped.

Are we emotionally balanced while investing? A Little profit will tempt you to be all in and a little loss will make you want to exit. A Better idea would be to have predetermined realistic return and once it's met, book profits and exit without wandering that it could have been more high and if it's not met, just stay invested. And for staying invested, it's imp that those stocks are picked which you understand and just not speculate.
This is our tour of Old Jerusalem yesterday. There was so much to see! There is Mt Olive, The Western Wall, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the stone Jesus was embalmed on, and the seven stations where Jesus carried the cross
Shopping in the main souvenir market in Mexico City. To be honest, I didn’t buy anything. I didn’t see a lot I wanted compared to say Marrakech or Jaipur and prices were high, set for tourists. We went to several other markets after this which I’ll write about in my blog post that had more unique items and I did do a little shopping! But this was the most beautiful and colorful market for sure! #mexicocity#mexico#markets
As with most of the price action patterns that I trade, I target a 2:1 reward to risk ratio when trading the
shooting star candlestick pattern. In other words, if I’m risking 50 pips, I place my take profit 100 pips below
You can also use your reward to risk ratio as a filter. For instance, if you calculate that you cannot hit your
full 2:1 take profit before price moves down into an area that you believe could possibly be a strong support zone, you may want to skip the trade or only take the trade if you can get the 50% entry.
One of the nice things about the shooting star candlestick pattern is that it often provides great entries (fewer pips at risk), which in turn makes it more likely that even a short-lived reversal will hit your
full take profit.
