Jim Kouzes: Why You Should Hone Your Storytelling Skills

Jim Kouzes: Why You Should Hone Your Storytelling Skills | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...In a business climate obsessed with PowerPoint presentations, complex graphs and charts, and lengthy reports, storytelling may seem to some like a soft way of getting hard stuff done. It’s anything but that. Steve’s experience with storytelling is, in fact, supported by the data.


Research shows that when leaders want to communicate standards, stories are a much more effective means of communication than are corporate policy statements, data about performance, and even a story plus the data. Information is more quickly and accurately remembered when it is first presented in the form of an example or story....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Another Jim Kouzes quote: "Stories are a powerful tool for teaching people about what’s important and what’s not, what works and what doesn’t, what is and what could be. Through stories, leaders pass on lessons about shared values and get others to work together."

Google Wants to Make Mobile, Video and Programmatic 'Revolutions' Blasé by 2020

Google Wants to Make Mobile, Video and Programmatic 'Revolutions' Blasé by 2020 | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Philipp Schindler was Google's ad chief for years, but few would know it. Having hailed from Germany, Schindler spent a good portion of his 11 years at Google running its European business before quietly ascending to global chief business officer 13 months ago. Now, for the first time in this role, he sat down with Adweek as he prepares to take the stage on Monday to address the industry at Advertising Week.


Schindler predicts his three favorite "revolutions"—mobile, video and programmatic—will be so common that by 2020 "we will actually look back and laugh that we called them revolutions."
Per Google, two-thirds of smartphone users say they turn to their devices to learn about a product or service after seeing a television commercial.

 

With that in mind, the 45-year-old exec and his team will unveil to the Advertising Week audience a platform that allows brands to see how YouTube ads compare to TV spots for smartphone searches. Google data will show how its YouTube videos outperform linear TV by two times. "We're the prime time for the mobile world," Schindler proclaimed....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Google as prime time for the mobile world is already here according to its global chief business officer Philipp Schindler.

Beautiful Copper Coin Could Transform How We Spend Money

Beautiful Copper Coin Could Transform How We Spend Money | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The Scrip itself is a beautiful copper object, designed to look as precious as any currency, and weighing in at a solid ounce (about one-fifth of your iPhone, but heavier than most change or jewelry). Its aesthetic was inspired by Japan’s Tokugawa coinage, which was oval in shape and stamped with relatively complex texturing.

 

Whereas most coins really rest in your palm, this Scrip is designed to be grasped more like a deli ticket. For an interactive, electronic device, these ergonomics were key. Because in theory, you approach an NFC payment station with the Scrip. The station beams over the money you owe, which is displayed. Then, the Scrip’s braille-inspired surface, powered by actuators, begins stamping out virtual currency in giant numbers that you can both see and feel (a feat that NDD says they could pull off in real production, since braille computer displays do it successfully already).

 

Say you owe $26. A $20 will appear. You swipe the Scrip toward the payment station. Then a $5 will appear. You swipe that. And then a $1. The oval shape allows you to hold the Scrip in one hand, which provides a directionality necessary for this swipe gesture....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

The way we pay is flawed. One of the best industrial design firms in Silicon Valley wants to redesign it.

Voice Search Strategy: What Marketers Need to Know Now

Voice Search Strategy: What Marketers Need to Know Now | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

When you wear white, do you inevitably spill something all over yourself? 

I do. So when I had sushi at work last week, it wasn't long before I was frantically yelling, "Siri, how can I get soy sauce out of white pants?”

Thank goodness for voice search, am I right?

Although, here's the thing about voice search: According to the 2016 State of Inbound report, a huge number of marketers are making SEO their #1 priority. That's great. But how does voice search fit into that strategy? Are marketers even thinking about it yet?

While it's certainly gaining popularity -- the search engine Bing, for example, says that 25% of its queries are voice searches -- it’s clear that this technology is still a work in progress. But that doesn't make it any less important....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

This was a thought-provoking post and definitely something marketers need to consider soon.
