In my previous post, I wrote about the Poogle, the new breed of marketer, combining P&G’s and Google marketing skills. It’s easy to pinpoint the moment the Poogle was born. It was 2 years ago, when Google published “Wining the Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT),” its take on how buyers make purchasing decisions today.P&G’s “First Moment of Truth” (FMOT) defined the crucial moment when the consumer chooses one brand over the other, a focal point for traditional marketing (in addition to the second moment of truth, the consumer’s experience with the product).
Today, however, online conversations, social network-based recommendations, the immediacy of the mobile experience, the digital archiving of the word of mouth, all contribute to a new buying behavior. Google argued that as consumers are bombarded with information about products from these and other new sources (most not directly controlled by the marketer), marketing must pay attention to ZMOT, a new critical moment that happens much before FMOT. First impressions count and could happen when they are not at all related to a specific buying decision....

Today, Facebook dominates social media. The world
Facebook rose to dominance in 2008, and remains the top social network five years later. That’s an unprecedented run, and despite constant criticisms about design changes and new features, it doesn't look like the social network will be dethroned any time soon.
But that doesn’t mean we’ve reached the end of history for social networks. Several new ones have launched, such as Pinterest and Vine, and others have re-invented themselves. While Facebook is king, there’s still room for niche alternatives, particularly those that emphasis images or video rather than an infinitely updating news feed.
Sometimes I feel as if there are too many social media platforms. There is now a website or an app for virtually anything you can think of. More social media platforms will still be developed in the future, however I feel that soon people will run out of innovative ideas to capture an audience that is already tied up in multiple platforms.
The best advice I ever got from my mentor was: "you're spending too much time on the top line and notenough on the bottom line."
No man (or woman) is an island, and business owners need to seek advice and guidance from other successful business owners, if they themselves are to become successful in their respective endeavours.
One of the best ways to become better as a business owner, is to apply relevant advice that other business owners have successfully applied to their businesses, that they themselves received from others who went before them.
This excellent article, drawing on feedback from 13 successful Australian entrepreneurs, offers 13 great pieces of sound business advice that any business owner can take on board to improve the performance of their own business.
