Earlier this week “Apple’s iPhone Launch Marketing Strategy Analysis” I published on my SlideShare channel back on Jan 08, 2010, reached the 100,000 views point.
“Apple’s iPhone Launch Marketing Strategy Analysis” is a paper I wrote in the last months of 2009 as final work on my Marketing course while getting my Masters of Digital Marketing in Instituto de Empresa. And while I see many areas that can be improved and the thesis being actually expanded, I am thrilled that it was found useful by so many people, in one way or another.
The analysis is far from perfect, and I remember my professor mentioning a few things that could be improved. But giving the set rules of the game at the time was very close to an A. And I kept her suggestions to myself and learned from it.
Now, in 2013, I see that Apple guys have actually thought and worked on some of the suggestions I made. I am pretty much sure that they didn’t look at them and thought “Boy, we gotta do what this guy says!”, but it is nice to see that I was on the right path… And it feels great!
Even for that over 100,000 views, I am glad I published “Apple’s iPhone Launch Marketing Strategy Analysis” on my channel. All the documents and presentations I have uploaded on SlideShare were works done while being in b-school. They are not getting as much attention as this analysis, but that’s OK. However, they still prove to me that there were a point and opportunity there on SlideShare.
