TITLE STORY The cult bottle healthy for 100 years For a century, the SIGG brand - and with it the cult object SIGG bottle - has stood internationally for quality and sustainability.

MEDIA

INTERVIEW "No me-too products, but new added values". Daniel Truttmann, Publishing Director Business and Specialist Media at Axel Springer Schweiz AG, on the positioning of his business titles, the conversion of the "Cash" subscription, online as a "complementary continuation " of print and on business media appropriate to location and content. BUSINESS PRESS "Our readers are a well-off target group". Financial market crisis, new competition from "Cash Daily" and various free online business offerings. But the business press sees itself in a good position and is therefore optimistic. ONLINE MEDIA Use of online media far exceeds advertising share The business press is very active online, but not yet very lucrative: The advertising market is less responsive than the user. The advertising share is far below the use of online media. New forms of advertising and multimedia "show cases" are intended to remedy the situation. BUSINESS-TV "A high affinity environment for advertisers". "Consistently good to very good" is the demand for advertising around TV business shows. ASSOCIATION CONTRIBUTION Swiss Association of Advertisers (SWA)

EDUCATION

SALE Sales - primarily a profession for practitioners The Markom education reform will again increase the practical requirements for prospective sales professionals. This could further reduce the already low proportion of academics in the industry. In the future, sales manager candidates must be able to demonstrate a professional management function. SALES TRAINING "Careers in sales are more attractive than ever" Hans Zünd, Vice President of the Swiss Sales Association and responsible for education, is convinced that good training is a prerequisite for good salespeople. Soft skills must be better taken into account: "Further efforts are needed here," he says in the MK interview. CUSTOMER ORIENTATION Customer-oriented management brings profit Customer-oriented management brings profit: It's not quite that simple, because implementing it in the company is complex.
