“Exponential” Marketing Summit 2016

December 6, 2016 at MCT Marketing Summit, Istanbul

Addictive Ideas + Intelligent Networks = Superfast Growth

We live in an exponential world.

  • Airbnb is the world’s largest accommodation provider, yet owns no property
  • Facebook is the world’s largest media owner, but creates no content
  • Alibaba is the world’s most valuable retailer, despite having zero inventory
  • Uber is the world’s largest taxi company, and owns no vehicles

These companies are built on addictive ideas and intelligent networks. They grow through platforms and partnerships at unbelievable speed.

They are exponential:

  • Imagine that every year you take a step forward. Within 30 years you will have taken 30 steps … 1 … 2 … 3 … 4 … 5 … That is linear thinking.
  • Now imagine that you live in an exponential world. Within 30 years you will have taken a billion steps … 1 … 2 … 4 … 16 … 256 … That is exponential thinking.

Just think about the next 5 years, and how the tsunami of new technologies, will facilitate and accelerate these possibilities:

  • 50 billion devices will connect our world (the internet of things), generating over 50ZB (that’s zettabytes, which is 10 to the power of 21 bytes) of big data
  • Computing power (Moore’s law still holds, doubling power ever two years), data speeds and network reach (Metcalfe’s law, value of network is relative to the square of nodes) will grow relentlessly.
  • 1 billion robots, drones and artificial intelligence programs will design, build and deliver our goods (replacing routine human roles, but liberating us to add more value in human and creative ways).
  • Size of devices, cost of storage, relevance of geography, time to market, and the old economic frictions (the main ways in which lazy businesses still seek to profit) will decline towards zero.

The impact is exponential… WhatsApp creating $19 billion in 3 years through addictive ideas. Periscope sold for $100m before it was even launched. Add 3D printers and robotics, big data and biotech … Ideas and networks harness the power of technology and imagination to progress at speeds and magnitudes like never before … Multiplying the possibilities to grow and create value.

Are you thinking exponentially?
