Charles Young's insight:

I love this article, explaining how a fake brand for a fake company was created and how it won a customer service award. All you need is the know how. 

 

I find the entire Social Media 'Influencer' space distastful, its nothing but cash for comments and hot air - the sooner the followers of these 'influncers' realize they are following bullshit the better.

Retaining digital talent to combat the skills shortage

Retaining digital talent to combat the skills shortage | Digital & Mobile Landscape Asia Pac | Scoop.it

Why is our start-up system broken? | Digital & Mobile Landscape Asia Pac | Scoop.it
A US guru claims we're ignorant of local tech talent. What needs to change?
Charles Young's insight:

Such a shame there are not the investment funds here in Australia to match the level of technical innovation. There is money if you need a small Angel round to kick off an idea and also some Series A once you are post revenues and about to climb the hockey stick (arguably when you don't need money) but a barren wasteland for companies in between these points.

Connected fashion store adds online features to high street shopping

Connected fashion store adds online features to high street shopping | Digital & Mobile Landscape Asia Pac | Scoop.it
The flagship Rebecca Minkoff store in New York City is adding a touch of digital to the offline shopping experience.
Charles Young's insight:

An Interesting look at retail innovation, but is it really necessary? Would you prefer this over an attentive staff member in-store? This seems to be trying to change a shoppers behavior unnecessarily? Shoppers want a more traditional experience in store, great customer service and the ability to touch and feel the products. Retailers should be investing in people and training in-store.


Users want a tool to make the research phase Online easier and we believe that we have solved this part of the problem with Clinch.


We encourage you to join the debate - what is the best in-store shopping experience for you?
