Unicist Strategy: Commercial Binary Actions

The learning from nature allows developing skills that can be applied in everyday life. What can be learned from these videos is that the development of binary actions requires understanding the environment and designing the necessary binary actions that maximize the probability of success.

In the field of business, the quality assurance of this process is given by the development of pilot test until the strategy is found and the use of destructive tests to expand the boundaries of its application.

Binary Actions in Marketing Processes

Synthesis

Commercial binary actions are two synchronized actions that expand markets while they ensure their results. They were developed to accelerate market growth by managing actions to install maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure results.

Binary actions empower the value of processes while they diminish their costs. They use catalysts to expand the boundaries of solutions and business objects to accelerate processes and ensure their functionality.

Binary Actions Exist since Living Beings became Intelligent

Binary actions are part of human adaptive behavior. They also exist in the behavior of animals. Binary action is an action that maximizes the achievement of results by using the influence of the environment to do something. Using the context to do things is part of natural human intelligence. The core is being able to anticipate the consequences of what is happening in the context.

Unicist Binary Actions

Every action of the context of an activity influences the possibilities of some actions and inhibits others. Smart people only develop adaptive actions when the context makes them possible.

The research of Binary Actions

The first stage of the research at The Unicist Research Institute was focused on how this integration of context and actions works and how it can be emulated to develop binary actions based on the development of a restricted context that sustains the achievement of results. This drove to the discovery of the structure of social gravitational forces and catalyst that apply in all the fields of human behavior.

unicist binary actions

The second stage of the research was to find a way to develop binary actions that allow influencing people without generating reactions or change resistance.

This stage, integrated with the previous stage, drove to the development of binary actions to influence people by understanding the concepts that drive their actions. This knowledge established a new stage in the management of adaptive systems and environment.

The Building of Binary Actions

In marketing the use of binary actions is driven by the use of catalysts that generate a space in the market by satisfying latent needs, accelerate buying processes and install “hope” in the mind of potential buyers.

Supply driven markets, differentiated products or services and innovative value propositions require necessarily the building of catalysts when they are not available in the environment.

A self-evident catalyst in marketing processes is the brand power that sustains a value proposition. This is an artificial catalyst that is built by an organization to install attributes in the mind of the potential customers to sustain the marketing process.

Influencing customers requires using unicist binary actions that include the drivers and catalysts of buying processes. The unicist conceptual marketing approach uses binary actions based on the root causes of buying processes, which are influenced using catalysts.

Binary actions ensure fluent communication. Their use allows emulating the structure of buying processes to manage their dynamics and evolution.

The binary actions require using catalysts and marketing drivers in a synchronic way that accelerates buying processes.

Unicist binary actions are driven by the development of marketing actions according to the types of the products and services proposed and the segments of buyers.

Sponsor Building in B2B Marketing

The B2B marketing process of differentiated and innovative products / services requires the integration of sponsors. This B2B marketing process includes the participation of 4 basic roles:

  1. The decision makers
  2. The users
  3. The gatekeepers
  4. The sponsors

There are two alternative paths to introduce a new proposition:

  1. The approach to decision makers, which is the natural path when the value proposition implies a systemic use that includes different functionalities.
  2. The approach to users, which is the natural path when the innovation introduces notorious benefits for the user.

The gatekeepers have a significant role by ensuring the convenience of the new value proposition. They need to be addressed by providing the necessary proofs of the need of the solution and the convenience of its adoption.

The role of the sponsor is to endorse the differentiated or innovative value propositions. To endorse a value proposition, it is necessary to be aware of its functionality. Sponsors of B2B marketing processes have two roles:

  1. To introduce value propositions, which is the case of recommenders.
  2. To endorse the value propositions after they are perceived as necessary.

It has to be considered that the members of the organization that proposes differentiated or innovative solutions need to be the first witnesses that sponsor the value propositions.

The Sponsor Building Process

The possibility of building sponsors is fully related with intrinsic characteristics of the value propositions and of the institution that is proposing them. The basic condition for having sponsors is defined by the existence of a greater good that underlies the value propositions.

This is evident in the sponsoring of sports, arts, or science, but not so evident in the sponsoring of differentiated or innovative B2B value propositions.

The greater good

This requires that the organization that is proposing these innovations is truly sustained by this greater good. The greater good has to be perceived as being underneath the value proposition without being part of it.

Sales agents must witness this greater good when the value propositions are proposed. The greater good provides the benefits for the clients, the sponsors and the providers.

The catalyst of sponsor building

The greater good is only believable if the organization includes a reference group that sustains or builds the greater good, which has to be noticeable in the market. The reference group needs to be recognized by its deeds in the market and is the “intangible” influencer to build sponsors.

The building of sponsors is immediate when the greater good is notoriously differentiated and the reference group is consistent.

The next step to build a sponsor is the establishment of the possibility of a complementation. This requires the development of a sort of pilot test that allows potential sponsors to experience the solution that is being proposed.

Sponsoring implies sharing the benefits of the greater good that sustains the value propositions. This experience establishes the starting point that has to be followed by actions that transfer solutions to the client and sponsor to share the benefits of the greater good.

This drives towards the building of a functional reliability, which needs to include the development of personal relationships among the participants. The participation in exchange spaces with clients builds an environment that helps to maintain the relationships with clients and sponsors.

Sponsors can exist when there is a stable relationship between the members of the organization that proposes the differentiated or innovative value propositions and its users. This relationship requires that the provider has ongoing activities that open the expectation of possibilities of upgrades of the value propositions in the future.

About the Conceptual Short-Term Memory (CSTM)

It has to be considered that any value proposition made to a person is recognized by the Conceptual Short-Term Memory (CSTM) that uses the concepts stored in the Long-Term Memory (LTM). Therefore, the marketing actions that are based on conceptual segmentation increase notoriously their effectiveness.

Unicist Conceptual Marketing

The unicist marketing technologies have been developed at The Unicist Research Institute to manage the root causes of buying processes.

Unicist Conceptual Marketing is an approach based on the use of business objects and the unicist segmentation.

Buying decisions are driven by the concepts individuals have. That is why buying decision are driven by the instantaneous actions of the Conceptual Short-Term Memory that use the information stored as a concept in the long-term memory.

The unicist root cause marketing includes:

Unicist Marketing Strategy: to define the short-term and long-term segmented strategies, including both maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to sustain the customer base.

Unicist Root Causes of Buying Processes: to define the root drivers of buying processes, including the conceptual and the functional and psychological drivers.

Maximal & Minimum Marketing Actions: to define the actions and their synchronicity that need to be developed in order to have a critical mass in buying decisions.

Unicist Conceptual Design Groups: to define the concepts that drive the actions of the different segments of the market and define the segmented proposals and actions to be developed.

Benefits of the Unicist Conceptual Marketing:
• Increase of marketing effectiveness

Mindsets in the B2B Marketing of Management Technologies

A mindset is a pre-concept that establishes a decision framework that avoids personal risks. Mindsets are built upon actual successful experiences that are stored in the long-term memory of individuals. There are specific mindsets that deal with business problem solving and social mindsets that establish the framework of personal interaction.

Mindsets in Management

The mindsets in management are defined by the fundamentals that drive management decisions.  Decision makers are:

  • Solution driven
  • Problem solving driven
  • Technology driven
  • Power driven

Expansive management is driven by complex problem solving and the necessary systems to build the expansion. Contractive management is driven by simple problem solving and the use of tools to simplify the work.

B2B Marketing of Management Technologies

The mindsets provide the framework that allows triggering the automatic responses of the Conceptual Short-Term Memory in buying processes. These mindsets trigger functional decisions when the external environment remains unchanged. They are dysfunctional in changing environments.

The structure of business management defines the different mindsets that are needed to manage the B2B marketing of business solutions. The understanding of the basic functionality of the mindset is needed to know where the solutions fit it:

  • Operational Mindset – Is necessary to deal with functional operations.
  • Technical Mindset – Is necessary to deal with hard technologies.
  • Systemic (Cause-Effect) Mindset – Is necessary to organize processes.
  • Root-Cause Mindset – Is necessary to improve processes and develop strategies.

B2B marketing requires considering the mindset of the sponsors, users, gatekeepers and the decision makers to make adequate proposals. The institutional brand attributes need to fit into the social mindset of the potential buyers while the product brand attributes have to be consistent with the specific mindsets.

These mindsets define the restricted context of the B2B segmentation to be used.  The marketing process of management solutions is catalyzed by the institutional and product brands and is inhibited when the mindsets are disregarded.
