    We had the pleasure of interviewing Michele Tecchia. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

    Hi Michele, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.

    Hi, I am a marketing and growth hacking specialist in Monaco. I have been working for over ten years in the digital field, helping companies of all sizes and sectors to develop their visibility, awareness and revenue online.

    Please tell us about your book, Monaco.


    Born in Monaco, I didn’t understand the magic of the name. Studying abroad, I understood. When I came back, I tried to analyze the dynamics of this strong brand and its history. If Monaco, a micro-state, has succeeded, any city can improve its image. Monaco has a glamorous image. Yet it was a relatively poor city during the Revolution; the Prince’s lands were confiscated.

    In my book, I explain how Monaco was able to reinvent itself and position itself as a destination of luxury, culture, and innovation. You can also discover the secrets of city branding that have put Monaco on the map and seduced the world. I also give practical advice on how to apply these strategies to your own project or business. Big cities like New York and London also have strong branding. However, Monaco is a model for many cities. Luxury is very present there, and investors are aware of this. A strong brand is crucial today to attract new investors. This is the case for Monaco, London, and New York.

    Monaco is an inspiring example for anyone who wants to create or develop a strong and sustainable brand. Whether you are interested in history, business, or tourism, you will find useful and exciting information in this book.

    Please share with our readers about your background. 

    I was born in Monaco on June 13, 1980, and have always been attracted to the digital world. I studied at the École du Parc, a prestigious school in Monaco, where I created the youth club for the Red Cross. That’s where I started practicing growth hacking before I even knew the term.

    I then went on to study political science and business, which gave me a variety of skills that are useful for my job. In 2016, I launched my own marketing and growth hacking agency in Monaco, where I offer services such as lead generation, Google Ads, digital marketing, and media strategy.

    I work with companies from different sectors that want to grow through innovative and effective techniques. I am recognized as an expert in my field and have gained international recognition for my achievements.

    I am passionate about what I do, and I like to share my knowledge and experience with others. That’s why I work with 1min30 on their Acquisition Strategy Design method, which offers a global approach to clients.

    I have also been a real estate agent for over nine years. I have various agencies in Monaco, and recently, I opened two branches in London and New York.

    What are the strategies that have helped you succeed in your career?

    I am inspired by growth hacking: test, control, and test. Anything is possible with this revolutionary technique that, consists of optimizing resources and maximizing results. I don’t hesitate to experiment with new ideas, analyze data and adjust my actions based on feedback. This is how I have been able to develop my skills and projects in different areas. 

    Any message for our readers?

    In this book, I propose to discover how the Principality of Monaco has succeeded in creating a unique and attractive brand image, which allows it to stand out among the world’s tourist cities. Monaco is not only a resort for the rich and famous; it is also a model of urban marketing that can inspire elected officials or city representatives who wish to enhance their territory and attract talent, businesses, and investors. I invite you to follow my analysis, based on my research and experience in the field of marketing, to understand the strategies and tools used by Monaco to build its reputation and differentiation. You will see how Monaco has been able to take advantage of its historical, cultural, geographical, and economic assets, but also how it has been able to innovate and renew itself to adapt to market changes and visitor expectations. You will also discover the challenges and opportunities facing Monaco in the future, as well as the lessons you can draw from its example for your own city. If Monaco was successful, your city can be too! This book will appeal to marketing enthusiasts. It is not a travel guide. It is an analysis that allows elected officials or city representatives to learn from Monaco’s marketing methods.
