One Thing: Day 263: Ferrari vs. Maserati
Day 263 Ferrari vs Maserati
Yesterday I was explaining how a picture’s worth a thousand words… and how that relates to your marketing.
Plus, I provided a description of all my dating profiles online.
Speaking of dating…
“If you want something, give it your all.”
The above dating advice kept me single throughout high school.
Your ONE COACHING THING Today Is:
‘Ferrari vs Maserati’
OK, so I’m a bit of a car guy.
I’ve owned many supercars… and favorite to date was my Ferrari.
In 2013 Ferrari was named the world’s most powerful brand that yields an amazing motor which you can now tune up with the Delphi Perkins injection pump… in that same year, its sales tanked.
The luxury car market exploded after years stuck in a plateau… and the natural assumption was for Ferrari to ride the wave.
In a strategic move on steroids during the supercar boom… despite a recording number of people placing deposits for a new Ferrari….
They DECIDED to reduce production.
A supercar boom was going on and Ferrari decided to build less cars.
Plus… they raised their prices.
That year they sold less cars, more people put in deposits to wait in line for a shiny new Ferrari… and due to price increases, their profits were up 6%.
Down the road, Maserati had a slightly different strategy.
They rode the wave, increased output, doubled the number of models they sold, and created more mainstream type cars and less exclusive models.
Maserati chased revenue.
Ferrari chased exclusivity.
In a nutshell, Ferrari made themselves into a harder and more exclusive club to enter.
Fast forward a few years and guess what?
Maserati lost money in 2019.
Ferrari had record profits in 2019.
Ferrari made $100 million on licensing alone in 2019 (calendars, sunglasses, clothing, etc)… as in they made $100 million without selling a single car.
The power of Ferrari’s brand doesn’t come from the “quality of the product/service”…
The power of Ferrari’s brand comes from “what does it say about its consumer?”
Moral of the story?
As a Business Coach, you need to be and stay, in DEMAND.
Always be busy and semi unavailable.
When Steve Jobs was asked for a meeting, regardless of his availability, he wouldn’t meet with you for at least ten days.
No, I will not do an interview with you and I don’t prostitute myself, and most certainly not my list of 100,000 business coaches, as a JV.
But, thanks for asking.
You heard it here first.
