Grading classical brand archetypes for credit unions

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Branding is important. It builds recognition and trust in consumers. It’s the reason people use words like Coke, Xerox, and Post-It instead of cola, photocopier, and sticky note. Branding is why the skate fashion company Supreme made a brick with their logo on it, instantly sold out of it at $30 a pop, and then saw those bricks go for $1,000 on the secondary market.Many in the financial industry don’t quite realize the importance of branding. Or maybe, in a world of percentages, terms, and numbers, branding seems complicated and superfluous.It’s not.Why Branding Is Important for Credit UnionsGenerally speaking, credit unions have better terms and rates than their competitors. Nevertheless, growth is slow and younger generations don’t even know what credit unions are. continue reading »last_img read more

I would make a bet, that the DNA would belong to a big fat lab. Report Reply 1 reply · active 280 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Sunflower · 280 weeks ago You might loose your money.

I hope they start ticketing those people who don’t clean up after their dogs. Disgusting! Report Reply 0 replies · active 280 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Sunflower · 280 weeks ago I have a Fat dog that looks like a Lab,and not once have we not cleaned up after him. Some of us do care about the down town area. We are the ones carrying the doggy bag to the trash, while 4 more piles are still there. Because a dog is Fat does not mean the owner does not clean. Don’t point a finger, just grab a bag. Report Reply 0 replies · active 280 weeks ago -2 Vote up Vote down Meme · 280 weeks ago Started walking on the grass at the local park to avoid the race car drivers on the paved road that runs through it only to find I had to dodge copious amounts of dog poo in the grassy areas. Goose grease isn’t a big deal…if you step in it it’s small and doesn’t reek, unlike dog poo. I have seen numerous dog owners letting their dogs run freely there, not only in the park but also on the golf course. I have yet to see a single one of them carrying a bag to pick up their dog’s leavings. We even saw one guy let his dog dump right on a tee. Also, you gotta love the neighborhood dog owners who take their dogs for a walk so they can poop and pee in someone else’s yard. If you can’t pick up after your dog (including in your backyard which also reeks) then please don’t get one. This is getting really old.

Leicester’s Mahrez voted England’s Player of the Year

first_imgLONDON (AP): Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez became the first African to be named English football’s player of the year yesterday, straight after the Algerian helped his team close in on the Premier League title. Mahrez was flown by helicopter to the Professional Footballers’ Association ceremony in London after scoring his 17th goal of Leicester’s astonishing title charge as the leaders beat Swansea 4-0 at the King Power Stadium in central England. Mahrez was on a six-man shortlist including Leicester teammates Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante for the vote of their fellow professionals in English football. “I’m very grateful to receive this award,” Mahrez said. “It’s extra special because if the players vote for me, it’s because they’ve seen I’ve been great this year, so I’m happy. But it’s more team things. Without my teammates, I wouldn’t get this award.” The 25-year-old Mahrez is only the second winner of the PFA award from outside England. Uruguay striker Luis Suarez won it in 2014 while playing for Liverpool. Unlike Suarez, Mahrez was an unknown when he moved to England two years ago, joining Leicester from second tier French side Le Havre for less than 500,000 pounds. The transfer now seems one of the best bargains ever in English football, where the record fee is the 59.7 million pounds that Manchester United paid for Angel Di Maria in 2014 before selling the winger the following year. Mahrez has provided inventiveness and flair to Leicester’s attacking play, contributing not only goals but also 11 assists to help transform a team that fought for Premier League survival last season. Now a guaranteed starter, Mahrez was an unused substitute this weekend a year ago when Leicester beat Burnley to finally escape the relegation zone. Leicester started the season as a 5,000-1 title outsider but is now set to become English football’s first maiden championship winner since Nottingham Forest in 1978. “The secret has been team spirit,” Mahrez said. “We work so hard for each other. We are like brothers, it’s everywhere on the pitch. That’s our strength.”last_img read more

first_imgCrystal Palace defender Scott Dann has told talkSPORT he has not given up hope of winning an England call-up.The centre-back has been in impressive from for the Eagles ever since his arrival at Selhurst Park from Blackburn in January 2014.International recognition has so far eluded the 27-year-old, but he believes he could still earn a chance under Roy Hodgson if he continues to star for Palace.“I’m like anyone else, I would love to play for my country,” he said, speaking to Adrian Durham and Darren Gough on Drivetime.“The only way you get to play for your country is if you are playing well week in, week out for your team and that is what I’ll continue to do. And I will try to keep on improving.“If the honours come in the future, then I will obviously be very happy.“There are a lot of great players in the Premier League but you can only just keep on playing well and it’s down to the England manager who he chooses. You can’t do any more than try your best.”last_img read more
