Augment Your Ecom Websites Reality To Convert More Visitors To BUYERS

Augment Your Ecom Websites Reality To Convert More Visitors To BUYERS | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Via villaves56, Jesús Hernández
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

New #UseThis Video Technology for Ecom

WOW, this Augment technology that allows your customers to easily SEE your products in their home is too cool.

Watch this video to get the idea:
http://youtu.be/EEstFtQbzow

As a former Director of E-commerce I know that context is everything. By project your product into their (your customers') home conversions will go up by an order of magnitude.

What other uses can this idea of "augmented reality" create? Could you project your family into a vacation or your next car? Why not?



Very cool. #USEThis.

Existen en el mercado muchas aplicaciones móviles de geolocalización y pocas con marcadores. Augment es gratis y no ocupa, de entrada, mucho espacio, 
Además, es posible importar nuestros archivos 3D de una carpeta en Dropbox para visualizarlos usando Augment. También podemos crear nuestros propios marcadores.

The Evolution of Human Connection - Masterful Interactive e-Book via @Columnfive 

The Evolution of Human Connection - Masterful Interactive e-Book via @Columnfive  | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Explore how technology and human connection can work together to create highly engaging brand content in this interactive eBook from Ceros and Column Five Media.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

The great infographic company Column 5's new free ebook ROCKS. We like how engaging it is thanks to a unique look and feel and turning a flat and so less engaging infographic into a small and easy to understand "experience". 

Covering many "next generation" marketing topics such as interactive video, VR, and haptic technology (engage all senses) the Evolution of Human Connection is a #mustread #mustwatch and #mustfollow masterwork.

Why Creating A To-Do Lists Derail Your Success via @FastCompany

Why Creating A To-Do Lists Derail Your Success via @FastCompany | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Most of us make them, but to-do lists make us more stressed and don't account for how long tasks take. Here are three things to do instead.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Can't Imagine A Steve Jobs To Do List? Us either...
Fast Company makes a great point. Bill Gates doesn't make To Do Lists. Elon Musk isn't a slave to an arbitrary list. Great minds use techniques outlined here (time blocking, being flexible). Great companion watch is Joi Itto's TED Talk (https://www.ted.com/talks/joi_ito_want_to_innovate_become_a_now_ist?language=en )

Great thoughts on moving away from static and toward dynamic. Putting the right priority on things is what makes Gates, Jobs and Musk not being slaves to arbitrary anything is our thought and we will be sticking to it :). Marty

Women We Admire: Queen of Pinterest
We shared a few women we admire on Queen of PInterest including the artist Jenny Holzer. The image above is a women wearing one of Holzer's "Truisms".

Holzer, one of our favorite artists, creates short haikus she named "Truisms". Her career began plastering her unique truths on billboards and signs much like Shepard Fairey. Holzer, also a RISD influenced artist like Fairey,  graduated to the Venice Biennale (1990) and projections of Truisms on buildings around the world. 

Share women you admire and we will pin them to Queen of Pinterest or ask to be a pinner on our popular community board:

HiFiMan Lands On the Moon & Don't Wait for Manufacturers To Get SMM

HiFiMan Lands On the Moon & Don't Wait for Manufacturers To Get SMM | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Moon Audio Doesn't Wait
Friends at http://www.Moon-Audio.com  sell the best headphones, amps and DACs in the world coupled with their DRAGON cables and you have a lifetime of listening pleasure ahead. 

What Moon-Audio.com doesn't do is wait on manufacturers to get social media. Take a great and well named brand HiFiMan. They are launch what looks like a great new pair of headphones. Can you find their Twitter on their not easy to find blog? Nope.

On their site you will see a sign looking for partners like Moon-Audio.com. Let's see what is the best way to ask your potential distributors to queue and be excited about your products? Yep, social media.

Do MOST manufacturers get, understand or use social media well? Nope. Manufacturers haven't gotten the message - your digital communication lives longer and does more than your products. The first and possibly the most important "product" we create is our digital communication about the products we create.

But few manufacturers get that idea. They see themselves as widget makers. Cool, but there are a million widget makers out there. A million widget cobblers and a few self sustaining online community.

BTW, if you asked team Curagami what business we are in it is simple - we help Small to Medium Sized businesses like HiFiMan and Moon Audio create sustainable online community. Easy to write and hard to actually create sustainable online community is the first and most lasting business we create (or they brands like HiFiMan) create.

If you buy great headphones buy them from my friends at Moon-Audio.com since they will pair your musical taste and headphones with their Dragon audio cable. Your ears will thank you and your music will sound so amazing you will want more.

 Music isn't a commodity and will never become one. Neither is the gear we use to listen to the music we love (a commodity) though many treat the cool tech we love as such. Want to save a few bucks or hear music like you've never heard it before? 

Am I saying don't feed the kids to feed your head? Nope, but if there is some extra room find a way to improve your music listening gear. Few purchases will give you nearly half as much joy. I've spent a few grand (with Moon and others) and I HEAR what that investment means to my life daily. Best money I've spent by some distance.

Building Thriving B2B Communities: A conversation with Mary Green - B2B News Network #mustread  | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Building B2B Community
This paragraph is GOLD: 

Mary approaches community building in B2B in a straightforward fashion. To be successful, you must be genuine and seek out conversation. You also have to be willing to educate yourself and others, and to walk the talk: “Find great sources of information on digital marketing and social media and read everything you can. Implement what you read.”

We would go further adding the need to seek real human connection, but we are nit picking. Great must read post by @CendrineMedia.

Social Media Posting Frequency? Helpful infographic via Constant Contact

Social Media Posting Frequency? Helpful infographic via Constant Contact | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
When I’m hosting Constant Contact’s social media webinars, I get a lot of questions from small businesses and nonprofits on social media best practices. On
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Hate Social Media Marketing Rules, but...
We hate rules when applied to social media. What works for one may not for another, but this Constant Contact Social Media posting frequency infographic gets an important concept right - match your STYLE of posting to the network not the other way around.

The "high volume, low value" idea is one of the best ways to think of social nets we've seen. The concept is easy to grasp = any network you publish on frequently such as Pinterest and Twitter is LOW VALUE and vice versa.

Like the author of the post and infographic we get many of these same questions, but we've never had such a handy graphic to explain why matching your hatch TO the social net makes the most sense.  

If you've been flooding Facebook have you done irreparable harm? No, just chill and understand how to share what, when, and where.
