Pinterest has garnered a reputation (whether incidentally or intentionally) as a website geared mostly towards females who need ideas for weddings, home décor, and recreation. Maybe you like the idea of Pinterest but not its subject matter. Maybe Pinterest just isn't for you. Is there hope for you? Yes, there is. As it turns out,…
Excerpt from the review article by TechCrunch: "VideoGenie has launched a new product that it calls StoryBox, which aggregates all kinds of content about a brand. The company says the testimonials can include tweets, YouTube videos, Instagram photos, and more, all presented in what Nassiri (VideoGenie's CEO) called “a rich, visual environment” on the brand’s site, and with the option for visitors to add their own stories directly from the site.
Naturally, brands can curate the content, so that a tweet with the wrong message doesn’t end up in the StoryBox. At the same time, Nassiri said the product offers analytics showing which content is getting the most engagement and (when relevant) driving the most sales. StoryBox can automatically prioritize the best-performing content and display it prominently on the site..."
Excerpt from the guest post by Bryan Kramer, author of the new ebook "There is no B2B or B2C: Human to Human", and published on Brian Solis Blog. "Marketing has become so complex, in segmenting audiences into “B2B” (business to business) and “B2C” (business to consumer). This, plus the rise of social, digital and mobile channels, have created an atmosphere of anonymity. I fear that the social/digital/mobile world has created an angry mob of anonymous reactors who take short form communication literally.
That’s where “H2H” came from. The dawn of a more social web, i.e. forums, discussion boards, and pre- Web 2.0 online communities, would eventually equalize the media landscape and give a voice and brand to customers while introducing the need for a human persona in business. As Brian says of P2P, "people are now brands and brands are now people." This evolution has been guiding our society back into one that requires a more personal approach.
- Speaking Human Consumers are confused. Why can’t we make it simple for people to understand what we’re selling, so they can more easily share their experiences and the value they felt with others? Don’t care what language you speak, who your brand is or what message you’re trying to send, we all need to speak more human.
- A Human Approach: Social Sensory Marketing The future of social marketing involves “human sensory building”, and how it will become necessary to intertwine this approach into the marketing experience at each stage of the customer lifecycle. When we are able to weave directly relatable human experiences into social situations, it changes how we share and consume information forever.
- Customers are Fickle Humans Customers, as humans, are fickle and are so empowered today that they expect extraordinary, over-the-top experiences that rock their world. Customers are ready to move on unless they have one thing – an undying relationship with a person or people at your brand who made them feel uniquely special.
- Becoming Better Storytellers Humans require context to understand concepts. Without boundaries, short bursts of communication, coupled with a faster-paced, noisy society and shorter attention spans is affecting how we, as humans, tell stories. We need to become better storytellers. Storytelling is a great way to communicate how you feel, or how you want your audience to feel. A story helps us understand how things fit into our individual experiences and gives us context to make decisions. Stories add the color, personality and relevance about what you’re trying to sell..."
Do you use Twitter to log in to websites that ask for your social credentials? Chances are, you don’t – only about four percent of all social logins are through Twitter.
Gigya explored the choices consumers make when faced with the question of how to log in to the sites they visit.
It will come as no surprise that Facebook is the reigning king of social logins.
Facebook accounts for 51 percent of all social logins across the web. Following Facebook is Google+ with 28 percent (up two percent from last quarter) and Yahoo with 15 percent (down three percent). Twitter is a distant fourth with just four percent – although it does beat out LinkedIn with one percent.
Twitter sees a bit of a lift when looking at social logins from mobile devices, up to six percent. However, this doesn’t come close to Facebook’s 63 percent or Google+’s 25 percent.
