janlgordon's insight:

This piece from Trendwatching contains some very valuable information about the future of business and how you can stay relevant by staying informed.


Here are some of the highlights that caught my attention:


Mega-trend of transparency in 2013?


**Brands  must move from 'having nothing to hide' to pro-actively showing and proving they have nothing to hide.


**The perfect storm of consumers' ever-greater lust for NEWISM and niches, the expectation of (instantly!) getting jut the right product, ongoing eco-concerns and the desire for more interesting stories will all combine with the spread of new local manufacturing technologies such as:


  *3D-printing and make-on-demand, to trigger a resurgence in

    domestic manufacturing in established markets in 2013


Mobile Moments


**in 2013, consumers will look to their mobile devices to maximize absolutely every moment, multi-if-not-hypertasking their experiences, purchases and communications...


Eco Trend for 2013


**Rather than being discarded or even recycled (by someone else), these products can be given back to nature to grow something new, with all the eco-status and eco-stories

Futurist, Ross Dawson Says: We Can Expect These 12 Themes in 2012

Futurist, Ross Dawson Says: We Can Expect These 12 Themes in 2012 | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Ross Dawson, who is someone I always listen to. The slideshow is a bit hard to read but there is text that explains the 12 themes for 2012. I found them all very interesting.


What particularly caught my attention was:


CROWD WORK


**In a connected world labor is a global game, and talent can be anywhere.


**Small businesses are now able to draw on low-cost skilled workers to extend their capabilities and grow faster.


**Large companies, from Procter & Gamble and IBM down, are recognizing that even they need to go beyond their employees to innovate fast enough.


****Creative industries and now media companies are drawing on crowds to generate ideas and content. Service marketplaces such as oDesk and


**Freelancer.com have already brokered over $1 billion of work.


EVERYTHING SOCIAL


**It is just over five years since Facebook was opened to the general public on September 26, 2006, finally making social networking an activity that transcended all demographic divides.


**There are now well over 1 billion people active on social networks around the world.


**Almost everything will be social, including organizational work processes, government policy and service delivery, shopping, school and adult education, job search, music, and almost every aspect of media.


**This explosion will create a social divide, with at one end of the spectrum the oversharers who live completely connected lives, while at the other extreme many will choose opt out of the social world, in many cases cutting themselves off from career and personal opportunities.

49 Ways to Gain Trust and Loyalty From Your Audience

49 Ways to Gain Trust and Loyalty From Your Audience | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Henneke Duistermaat, guest blogger for Copyblogger. I selected it because trust and loyalty are the two ingredients you need to build and keep your following. It isn't that difficult to attain if you follow these suggestions.

 

Determine what you want to be known for, then start building your reputation from there.

 

Here are a few highlights:

 

Three key elements to developing trust with your online audience:

 

** Build authority by creating and sharing useful content

 

**Develop relationships with your audience by showing you genuinely care

 

**Underscore your credibility with a professional website

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"Knowledge and competence is great but the combination of both encourages people to trust you and increases your powers of enchantment" Guy Kawasaki

 

**What knowledge can you share?

 

**What are your siills

 

**How can you share your experience to help others?

 

Here are a few ways to build authority

 

**Be on a mission - what do you want to achieve and why?

 

**Be different - develop your own voice

 

**Be a storyteller - stand for something

 

**Be helpful - Create and share content that solves your readers' problems

 

**Build a tribe - Your followers will spread your ideas for you

 

Don't focus on yourself

 

**Be sincerely interested

 

**Be yourself

 

**Build relationships by asking questions, saying thank you

 

**Show your personality - be transparent, humble, generous

 

**Understand the culture of a platform before you jump in

What Your Klout Score Really Means

What Your Klout Score Really Means | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Seth Stevenson for Epicenter Wired because whether we like it our not, Klout is definitlely infiltrating our lives personally and professionally according to the author and a recent article in Forbes  who are saying the same thing.


My commentary: I can understand that there has to be a way for businesses to sort through the masses and have some way of finding what they consider to be the best.

If your job requires you to be offline or in the field all day, you can't post on social networks, which is what Klout measures, therefore, your Klout score will be lower than someone else's who has a stronger presence than you and may or not be as competent as you are in your industry.


**I'd love to hear your comments about this - How do you feel about this because as I said, whether we like it or not, Klout exists and it is gaining momentum.


Your Klout score is gaining in importance: a high one might bring perks, but a low one could dash your career dreams or cause someone not to do business with you.


Here are some highlights:


**Much as Google’s search engine attempts to rank the relevance of every web page, Klout—a three-year-old startup based in San Francisco—is on a mission to rank the influence of every person online.


**Its algorithms comb through social media data:


**If you have a public account with Twitter, which makes updates available for anyone to read, you have a Klout score, whether you know it or not (unless you actively opt out on Klout’s website).


You can supplement that score by letting Klout link to harder-to-access accounts, like those on Google+, Facebook, or LinkedIn.


**The scores are calculated using variables that can include number of followers, frequency of updates, the Klout scores of your friends and followers, and the number of likes, retweets, and shares that your updates receive.


**High-scoring Klout users can qualify for Klout Perks, free goodies from companies hoping to garner some influential praise.
