The advent of the internet means that more people are looking into marketing and advertising online, whether through banner ads or search engine optimization services.


The internet has caused a surge of new marketing jobs to be available for this sector of the economy. There are no more black and white techniques used to appeal to a wide range of people at once. Instead, careful study of smaller and more willing demographics is essential to understanding the buying climate of that part of the economy. 


Being able to capture the mobile market is becoming all the more important for people in marketing. Advertising is a new method of reaching an audience that looks at their phone screen for a majority of the day. Thus, appealing to a mass market of consumers through applications and small sample purchases are a great way to make a profit off of the increased screen time per day. Mobile-geared advertisements can include animated graphics or even a short commercial clip.

The data storyteller is an individual who not only collects data, but is able to effectively analyze into marketing terms that the company can work with on advertising. This data can be everything from social networking polls to the number of users visiting a particular site per month. Other techniques include detecting patterns in collected data as well as new trends that can appear due to a world event or economic strife and prosperity. This important job works to make profitable a part of advertising that is crucial to reaching a wide variety of consumers


Someone who is into the details of marketing will work to make sure that each aspect of advertising has a distinctive brand feel to it, no matter how small or innocuous. Gift cards can reveal a lot about the spirit of the company, such as special holiday designs or throwback details that make them appeal to an older market that may have gone astray over the years. Appealing to both new and old consumers through brand identity is a great way to create a following for a particular brand.


Traditional marketing specialists are trained in modern advertising techniques and are always learning of new ways to reach out to customers in the most efficient and effective way. This means learning new technologies and how to best utilize them to showcase new products or reintroduce old ones. Specialists in this field can effectively brand and exemplify the spirit of the company in a way that reaches out to the largest demographic. Marketing directors ensure that there is a yearly quota being met, and the various advertising goals set out by the company. This includes deciding what to invest in in terms of advertising and marketing, as well as accompanying events and large corporate gatherings to further enhance the company’s image.

Steph Alexandra's curator insight, August 25, 4:28 PM

"For the vast majority of teens, social and other digital communications media are a daily part of life."

 

Again, this statistic report shows the popularity of public profiling among teens from 13-17 years. 91% of teens have experience using social media, and 51% of teens use a social networking site daily. With such statistics we can consider the social pressures and influence that virtual communication and public profiling has on the younger generation. Though this article doesn't look at the positives and negatives of social media interaction for this particular age group, it is clear to see that having an active public profile on the web is common, if not expected of the younger generation, for the purpose of communication and web literacy. 

 

In understanding how a younger generation operates and interprets public profiling, is to gain a better understanding of web systems, their function and purpose, and of the direction of today's society.

A Better Way to Diversify Colleges

If private colleges and universities formed a nationwide consortium, they could build a "percentage plan" of their own without the constraints imposed by state legislatures. Just as within large state systems, private institutions run the gamut nationally from prestigious research universities to more locally oriented bodies. If they joined together, they could collectively offer guaranteed admission, need-based financial aid, and support programs to the valedictorian and salutatorian of every one of the 29,705 public high schools in the United States.

That is potentially troubling news for graduate schools, which have relied on robust increases in foreign-student numbers, particularly in disciplines like engineering and the sciences, to offset weakening domestic enrollments. Even with the surge in students from abroad, total first-time enrollments in American graduate programs have decreased for the past two years.

A look at all 15 Reimagining Aid Design and Delivery reports from the Gates Foundation

But over all, the papers are more a cacophony of competing recommendations than they are a coherent policy agenda. The ideas that frequently recur might be politically ambitious (requiring colleges to disclose more data on graduates' employment and earnings, or automatically enrolling all student borrowers in income-based loan repayment), but they are discrete, small-bore policy prescriptions, not a broad vision for the future of federal financial aid.

In the end, many papers warned explicitly against such an approach, arguing that colleges and the federal government need to do more to increase completion without compromising access. Many papers (a full list with links is here, and the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators has created achart comparing recommendations) call for a radical overhaul of financial aid. All share some assumptions critical of financial aid in its current, access-oriented form. The organizations describe the system as broken: “inefficient, inequitable and inadequate,” in the words of the Education Trust; “based on a set of assumptions that no longer hold,” according to the Committee for Economic Development; a system that the National College Access Network wrote “cannot continue without change.”

New Research: Where the Talent Wars Are Hottest

New Research: Where the Talent Wars Are Hottest | nnBean | Scoop.it

Given the forecasts of uncertain global economic growth, we might expect companies to hold off from hiring new employees and to limit whatever international hiring they do to emerging markets. But our global survey of more than 1,000 corporate directors, conducted in partnership with WomenCorporateDirectors and Heidrick & Struggles, said otherwise. The vast majority of board members told us their companies are hiring in double-digits and across the globe.

 

So the war for talent is on. Are you and your company ready? Do you know what world regions and industries are generating the greatest demand for talent? Is your company prepared to defend your talent from aggressive raids by competitors?

Understanding Credit Risk

Measure and manage your credit and export risk with comprehensive trade solutions.

Via infozone

infozone's curator insight, June 12, 2013 11:15 PM

Credit risk is a term used to define the probability that a borrower will default on a loan. This is based off a number of factors, such as income, value of the initial amount loaned, and accumulated interest.


It literally pays to understand the ins and outs of how and why to invest in newer companies or larger ones in need of financial support. The potential for growth is optimal, and ensuring that executive management positions feel comfortable with investing is ideal for the business looking to make the best use of their assets. The amount of money to be made through lending is something that many companies can claim to offer, but not fully understand in a way that is of the utmost benefit to them.


Loans can be given out in a number of ways. Local and nationwide banking institutions typically have a loan process that involves an application for a specific type of loan. This can be anything from a home, business, or car. Depending on the amount needed and the nature of the lend, banks can quickly approve and deny those who apply. The process of doing so stems from the borrower filling out an application to be approved by the bank or its loan issuer.


http://www.investinginbonds.com/learnmore.asp?catid=5&subcatid=18&id=182


Applications for these loans involve determining the ability of the borrower to pay the loan back. This is true for virtually every form of credit risk. The lender wants to make everyone happy, but especially themselves when they profit from interest and other accumulated terms such as bonds and stocks. The loan form asks for the gross income of the individual and/or their family. This will place them in an economic bracket that the bank can work with. The decision is made based off of current credit score, outstanding loans and current household income or cash assets.


For the experienced lender, investing in a newer company can be a great way to use excess cash income. The company can be lent money as well as their current stock. This enables the lender to make more of a profit off of lending their money to the company in the long term. Of course, this might not always be the case. Regardless, it is still a wise choice for businesses that want to invest in new company stocks, as well as offer a hand to struggling companies.


To hedge against any potential losses means assessing and managing credit risk. A job department offers many insights and expertise into the matter, and it pays for larger companies to find any loopholes or risks of loss. As well as this, experienced credit managers can find ways to mitigate losses by purchasing credit insurance and writing covenants, which prevent any expected losses from happening in writing. The covenant is a contract that enables lenders to place rules that will stop the borrower from contracting out further loan obligations that could potentially cause them to default on their current standing.

The academic and business publication has quietly grown a digital presence....

 

Over the last several years, the Harvard Business Review has quietly grown its digital presence, and it points to social as the main reason. HBR is a cross between a magazine and an academic journal. But with the exponential growth in digital, the outlet is trying to be more egalitarian without watering down its heavily researched and often didactic business-management content. The publication, which costs $100 per year or $17 a month, believes social media’s role as a democratization tool can make its content more accessible to a wider audience.

 

“Social has been a key channel for us to increase the impact of these ideas,” said Eric Hellweg, HBR’s digital strategy director. “That’s the heart of what we do. But to unearth these ideas and tell them in the social realm, it becomes an effective way to spread these ideas around the world. It’s a great way to get reach and influence.”...

In some respects, this is the latest chapter in an old story of faculty entrepreneurship. By the mid-twentieth century, the president of the University of California, Clark Kerr, was already describing the Berkeley faculty as “individual entrepreneurs held together by a common grievance over parking.” Today, as star professors increasingly work for themselves, more faculty members at less prestigious institutions face low wages, meager benefits, and—since many lack tenure—minimal job security. But if the new technology threatens some professors with obscurity, others face obsolescence. Language instructors may someday be replaced by multilingual versions of Siri on your iPhone. One of my colleagues speaks of the imminent “evisceration” of graduate study, once young people who might have pursued an academic career are deterred as it becomes harder and harder to find a dignified job after years of training.

James L. Morrison's comment, April 12, 2013 9:54 AM
I just checked out Udemy.com as a venue for a course on planning and one on environmental scanning. I was intrigued to see that some courses were attracting thousands of students; professors get 70% of the tuition (which they set). I suspect that there will be more Udemys in the future and more professors using this route to supplement their incomes.

A = Yes. Q = Does Community Engagement Have a Place in a Placeless University? | nnBean | Scoop.it

The disruption of higher education is here and our traditional models of teaching and learning have forevermore been shattered.

 

It makes this disruptive moment that much more unexpected. For even as I embrace certain aspects of this technological transformation, I would argue that it is a perfect time (or maybe just a last-ditch opportunity?) to make the case for place-based community-engaged learning. The global reach of MOOCs, I want to suggest, may actually help us reconnect with our local communities.

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:54 AM

[T]he vast majority of such MOOC registrants never make it past the first week and only about 10% end up finishing the course. What is thus truly unknown, and what we must figure out, is how we come to think about and enact community engagement both within and against the coming online transformation.


This is the state of community engagement in the disrupted university. It is a precipitous moment where traditional models and norms no longer apply so easily or thoroughly. In some cases, there are immense opportunities to be gained as faculty discover how to make their work public and bring the public into their work. In other cases, there are immense opportunities to be lost as marginalized populations and communities become ever more disenfranchised from the institutions just blocks away, yet gigabytes apart.

“It’s a category that’s really well suited to the cloud when you think about the kind of scale of data that exists in a lot of these projects,” he says. “You know, some of them range to terabytes of information.”


Not only are the files complex, but records of who has edited, and when, and how add another level that Box helps sort out. And, points out Levie, because the files are so big, they’ve instituted a feature where users can see the renderings before downloading them, to make sure they’re looking at the right ones.


“I think when you can bring these tools to the masses, it really opens up innovation in an incredible way,” says Levie.


Gehry concurs. “I’ve dedicated a whole pile of my life — time and effort — on this topic,” he says, because most of the architecture around the world he hardly considers architecture. “It’s just buildings. And I have this hope that if we have the right tools out there that people with talent can prevail, and can show how you can build wonderful buildings for the same cost.”
