Designing  services
One of the misunderstandings of these days is that a designer has an artist or artisan background. In that approach designers are idea generators, visualizers and prototypers.   That is not our point of view. Our adagium comes from the management writer Herbert Simon, who stated that "Everyone designs who devises courses of action  aimed at changing existing into preferred ones".  As stated by others, this version of design tends to abstraction and general expertise.   The focus of this blog is service and services. In our world  service is exchanged for service. All firms are service firms; all markets are centered on the exchange of service, and all economies and societies are service based. And just even government and other institutions are always exchanging services for services. But be sure, in this era of change there is a heavy focus also on concept generation, visualization and digital concept and prototypes.   Interested in designing services?

7 Strategies That Are Transforming Mobile Apps

7 Strategies That Are Transforming Mobile Apps | Designing  services | Scoop.it

Just as every company is now a publisher (or should be) if they wish to have an effective digital strategy, I believe the next phase of growth will be that marketing departments of every company need to be involved in the development of mobile and/or tablet applications. If that doesn’t sound like a reality – I’ll provide an example.

We recently designed and developed a mobile application for engineers to use to make a plethora of different conversions for calculations they need to make daily. The company we built it for is a surface technology company. Does the application sell? No! That’s not the point – the point is to have the company’s name top of mind as engineers are working day to day. Greater brand awareness and click to contact calls to action enable them to take the next step. Immediately upon release, over 300 users in their industry downloaded the application and are utilizing it daily. It is a huge acquisition and retention win with a minimal investment.

Le département de marketing au centre du développement des applications mobiles. Comme les deux doigts de la main.

Security and privacy will be critical in 2015. Otherwise, we will see a great backlash. Non-trust worthy apps mean non-trust worthy brands that people will abandon.

2014 Ecommerce Design Trends Infographic via @CrowdFunde

2014 Ecommerce Design Trends Infographic via @CrowdFunde | Designing  services | Scoop.it

Little doubt enterprise crowdfunding will play an important role in ecommerce next year. As the first Ecommies shared on Curatti.com Ecommerce is stuck in its own mud (http://curatti.com/is-ecommerce-stuck-in-the-mud/ ).

CrowdFunde is a new tool that helps add crowdfunding to any website. Crowdfunding is about to explode thanks to the SEC ruling in late October to allow equity crowdfunding.

 

Enterprise crowdfunding is about to explode too and eCommerce will be changed by the addition of a new low cost, high return marketing channel that reminds us of what email marketing used to be before everyone started curating email with mobile devices, driving open rates down even as the size of many lists increase.

This CrowdFunde infographic shares color, growth and tribal acceptance information proving ecommerce is ready for a change, a crowdfunding, and social, mobile, gamified change.

Your 2014 Digital Marketing Roadmap - Marketing Technology Blog

Your 2014 Digital Marketing Roadmap - Marketing Technology Blog | Designing  services | Scoop.it

Sometimes it’s easier to just follow the dotted line as you’re looking to ensure your digital marketing is balanced and complete. This infographic compliments of Two Legit aims to do just that, walking you through your web presence, mobile, ecommerce, outbound, inbound, content and social media marketing initiatives.+

One element lost in this infographic is the ability for all of the strategies to work with one another. For instance, utilizing your content marketing to power newsletters that are optimized for mobile devices. That’s not defined in this infographic but it’s an absolute necessity if you’d like to fully leverage email and ensure your emails are read properly. I’ve written before that the modern digital media consultant is more of a conductor, balancing the volumes of each strategy to make some sweet, sweet music!+

More often than not, we find that the key to marketing well isn’t doing everything… it’s balancing a combination of strategies, amplifying the impact by having them work together, and understanding how much of each strategy to initiate in order to maximize results. That said – this is still a great checklist to go down and ensure you’re not missing anything! This infographic also provides some statistics behind the digital marketing trends.
