Twitter reportedly kicking off roadshow Oct. 25

With IPO expected to hit in November, Twitter execs soon will start meeting potential investors

Twitter reportedly is getting ready to begin its IPO roadshow on Oct. 28 and then begin trading on Nov. 15.

The company is set to hit the road and meet with high-level prospective investors, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan, between Oct. 25 and Nov. 6, according to a report from CNBC.com, which cited unnamed sources.

The company is expected to price its stock soon after the roadshow ends and launch its initial public offering on either Nov. 8 or Nov. 15, CNBC.com reported.

Twitter did not respond to a request for comment.

The micro-blogging company made famous by the 140-character tweet, is launching its IPO in the shadow of social network rival Facebook's troubled IPO in 2012. After Facebook took a year to stabilize its stock price after a disappointing launch, investors on and off Wall Street may be hesitant to put their money behind another social network.

Earlier this week, Twitter submitted an updated S-1 filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that showed the company lost almost as much money in the July-to-September quarter of this year as it did in the first six months of 2013.

However, the S-1 documents also showed that Twitter's revenue in the three-month period was $169 million, slightly more than double the revenue the company pulled in during the same quarter in 2012.

The impact of uniforms on consumer brand preferences

Flight attendant uniforms attract attention. From a primary association with sex appeal during the 1960-70s, to the diverse role they perform today, the flight attendant’s uniform sits front and centre in the advertising imagery of many airlines. However, relatively little is known about the ways in which consumer behaviour is influenced by airline uniforms.

Are data and creativity like chalk and cheese?

The industry is experiencing an explosion in data-led initiatives like programmatic buying, as well as a simultaneous increase in the importance of creativity. A less adventurous marketer might see these trends as chalk and cheese, as two developments which have the power to markedly improve a brand’s bottom line, but which don’t have much room for crossover.
