3 important lessons for marketers from Google's CIO - Chief Marketing Technologist | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

3 important lessons for marketers from Google's CIO - Chief Marketing Technologist | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | KristenChan | Scoop.it
You can imagine that being the CIO at Google could be a pretty tough gig. The whole company is teeming with super smart engineers. A large number of them are under 30 millennials who are famously opinionated.

 

Condensed...

 

1. Savvy customers

First, acknowledge that your customers are savvy. Google employees, the article notes, “aren’t haplessly trying to set up their voicemail; they’re experts in technology and expect it to work.” Ben sees them as representative of a broader shift in the workforce. Your customers are far more savvy than they were 10 years ago.

 

2. Front-line talent

Second, to deliver on the expectations of savvy customers, you need strong front-line talent. Ben takes great pride in hiring real experts on the front line of IT support — an approach that runs counter to traditional help desk economics.

 

3. Everyday experiences

Third, in IT — as in marketing — it’s easy to get preoccupied with major strategic initiatives at the expense of giving love and attention to the everyday experiences that people have with you.

 

For marketers, it’s easy to get caught up in the next major campaign. But the majority of the touchpoints that customers have with us include far more experiences than the typical campaign. It’s all the rest of the content on our website and blog. It’s how our web and mobile apps behave. It’s the quality and relevance of what is emailed through our nurturing programs. It’s the materials we provide for sales support deeper in the funnel.

Trends in the property market: students in Glasgow

Increase in the supply of student accommodation in Glasgow.


Via infozone

infozone's curator insight, July 15, 2013 6:22 PM

Home to the UK’s second largest student population and no less than four universities, Glasgow is home also to a high proportion of tenants demanding excellent value and unique terms based around student living from their landlords, be they buy to let investors or Glasgow property agents.


While demand for university places remains relatively buoyant, especially for undergraduate courses, and supply in the housing market is not yet plentiful in Glasgow, commitment from property developers and newfound will on the part of banks, incentivised in part by pledges of public finance by the government, are slowly but surely increasing the supply of flats and houses available to the city’s student population.


http://www.totalstudents.com/student-guide/glasgow/


As young families and recent entrants to the jobs market begin to take up places on help to buy schemes and banks find themselves compelled by the governments who bailed them out at the height of the global financial crisis to raise capital and provide safe credit to the taxpayers who require mortgages and have been unable to find them, moves out of city apartments and house shares to new builds, particularly in the East End, are leaving increasing numbers of city properties available to let.


Given the likelihood of demand in the rentals market remaining comparatively stable, despite hard times for students and the decision of a percentage to decline university offers and student loans in favour of school leaving employment, this leaves everything to play for when it comes to the student tenant and landlord relationship.  Competitive landlords will want to ensure they are providing the best value Glasgow property and service to their tenants.  This means being up to speed with the new student lifestyles, finances and budgets facing both undergraduates and postgraduates.


http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/news/tuition-fees/


For postgraduates, cuts to research grants across arts, sciences and humanities means that there are fewer funded degrees available.  Those who are fortunate enough to secure funding will be more likely to work part time, if not full time while pursuing part time research.  The same goes for undergraduates, who are facing a number of socioeconomic and financial factors that have dramatically altered the landscape of undergraduate life.

 

The importance of these changes for landlords letting student tenants is to appreciate the opportunities associated with the student population.  For instance, with students forced to enter employment much earlier than on graduating and to go the extra mile to maintain job security with demand for employment being so unmet in the current economy, 12 month leases, as opposed to leases excluding the long academic summer vacation, are the norm. 


Home, EU and international students are all less likely to travel home during their vacations and reading weeks, not only in light of the increased pressure to keep their jobs and to take on hours in order to cover the cost of student living, but also in light of the fact that travel fares are increasingly seen as an expensive luxury, rather than a necessity.

Smarter Engagement: Bypass Biases in Social Media – Think Insights – Google

Smarter Engagement: Bypass Biases in Social Media – Think Insights – Google | KristenChan | Scoop.it
Brands use social media to engage and deepen relationships with consumers. But Wharton School’s Pinar Yildirim warns of the risk in sensational content and minority opinions when it comes to user-generated content (UGC).


Digest...


We know it’s good to engage your customers. It’s not true, however, that any engagement is good engagement. Brands should not have blind faith in high numbers. Instead, media managers’ goal should be meaningful interactions that deepen relationships with their best customers.

 

The right metrics in social media are crucial, but interpretation is just as important and this is where I’m going to focus. When it comes to social media content, there are two tendencies to be wary of — sensationalism and extreme opinions.

 

So, my first piece of advice for managers is: do not to fall into the sensationalism trap and be careful how you interpret social media. Emotional, controversial, or exaggerated messaging might attract attention — and even boost your social media fans or followers’ number in the short term — but are people really buying into your brand? Moreover, could it be harmful in the long term? If brand-related content is going to chime in on the topic of the moment, make sure it does so in a way that ties back to your brand and what it stands for.

 

This brings us to my second piece of advice. When social media’s most active users are consumers with polarized opinions, managers must carefully interpret the data they gather from it. It can be detrimental when companies – and big data analysts – treat the opinions of a small, and possibly polarized, vocal group as representing the opinions of the rest.

iNeoMarketing's curator insight, June 4, 2013 9:26 AM

Dr. Yildirim is spot-on: we can all get excited about the minority opinion, be it good or bad. That's the void you risk falling into without proper metrics in place. Stay away from the most vocal and stick with the fundamentals.

Podcasting as a Business Content Marketing Strategy - Search Engine Journal

Podcasting as a Business Content Marketing Strategy - Search Engine Journal | KristenChan | Scoop.it

Every day we hear more experts preaching the gospel of podcasting as a content marketing tool. It's a very enticing sermon. According to Google Analytics the average visitor to my website stays for two minutes and seven seconds. According to Stitcher {popular alternative to iTunes} the average podcast listener stays for twenty two minutes.

 

If you believe the concept that the time our audience spends in front of our content builds authority then by these statistics I would have to produce 11 blog posts to equal just one podcast. Podcasts place the ideas and expertise that establish us as an authority in front of our audience for a longer period of time per interaction. From a business content marketing strategy, this is why we podcast.

Ergonomic Office Supplies

Ergonomics play an important role in desk and office equipment


Via infozone

infozone's curator insight, June 12, 2013 11:42 PM

The advent of computers has led to a rash of preventable physical ills, such as carpal tunnel and back pain. Fortunately, many companies are creating ergonomic office supplies to prevent pain while working.


Preventing back pain while working at a computer all day can be difficult if cheap chairs and desks are used. Even the type of keyboard and mouse can have an impact on the physical structure and pain of the body. By purchasing more ergonomic items that are functional and painless to operate, individuals can spend longer times working without pain.


Setting an advantageous height setting for office chairs is an important method of preventing pain. Correcting an otherwise ungainly height can work wonders in preventing spine problems in the future. Sitting up too high and too straight can put unnecessary stress on the lower back and cause pain in the future. Adjusting the height of the desk in correlation with the chair is the best way to get the ideal vantage point. Accessibility to the keyboard, mouse, and other commonly used objects should be taken into consideration as well.


http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2345859,00.asp


Posture helps to further relax the body and prevent unneeded stress on joints and the back. Sitting up straight, contrary to popular belief, does not help in preventing back pain. Instead, a slight slouch with the legs at a ninety degree angle is the most natural and relaxed way to sit. Keeping feet flat or suspended on a resting bar are also good ways to help with relaxation and stress prevention. As well as this, getting up and moving around every hour or so helps to prevent joints from locking and getting stiff as the day goes on.


Ergonomic keyboard drawers serve to save space as well as make the typing device more accessible to office workers. Instead of hunching over in a chair, keyboards come directly within reach of the hands and fingers for easy use. These drawers can typically hold both the keyboard and the mouse, effectively clearing a lot of space on top of the desk for more important items. Mouse and hand rests can prevent carpal tunnel by placing the wrist in a more natural manner. This enables it to rotate and move more efficiently without stressing the joints.


Mice and split keyboards are great office products for the individual who wants to work long hours but keep their good health. More plush mice have rests for the hand and are more comfortable to hold than blockier and plastic products. A surplus of quick keys and buttons can make accessing applications and shortcuts on the computer easier, saving time and energy in reaching the keys on the keyboard. The idea to make sure that suing each device is made more comfortable and relaxing to use, instead of painful and stressful on the joints. To effectively protect the long term health of office employees, it is always advisable to invest in more ergonomic and comfortable office products.
