15 Twitter Facts and Figures for 2014 You Need to Know - Jeffbullas's Blog

15 Twitter Facts and Figures for 2014 You Need to Know - Jeffbullas's Blog | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

The microblogging giant has come a long way since co-founder Jack Dorsey's first tweet. Here are some Twitter facts and figures worth checking out.

 

Twitter went public in November 2013. The much ballyhooed IPO was a big hit as TWTR opened at $26.00 and closed at $44.90 in its first day of trading. Today Twitter trades at $44.60 despite a net loss of $34 million in its most recent quarterly report.

 

While Twitter has become an incredible brand, it must find a way to show profitability in the future. We don’t want the little blue bird to fly away....

How Brick-and-Mortar Stores Are Becoming More Like Online Retailers

How Brick-and-Mortar Stores Are Becoming More Like Online Retailers | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Between the confluence of the Web and e-commerce and the rise in hours at work for U.S. workers, brick-and-mortar visits are becoming worryingly infrequent. Online shopping is rapidly overtaking high-street sales with the U.S. Department of Commerce spotting a 3.4% quarterly pickup in e-commerce sales compared to 0.6% for brick-and-mortar retailers during the fourth quarter of 2013.

 

However, thanks to modern technology, traditional retailers now have a chance to fight back. Strategy consulting firm Control Group put together a thorough report examining several emerging trends in retail technology. Especially, state-of-the-art technologies that make dynamic pricing for brick-and-mortar retailers could indeed enable them to turn the tide in the battle of clicks versus bricks....

Francey Smith's curator insight, October 19, 2014 5:01 PM

My focus and experience is non-food retailing. Today's customer for retail is already purchasing from many channels under the same name plate. She (and he) have been aware of multi-channels for several years and will continue to do so for the future near and beyond. Don't fool yourself into thinking that the "multi channel" customer is a fad!


The smart retailer today follows their customer (hopefully by name, address both postal and email, at a SKU level and then trends this robust customer data over time) on all channels.

5 Things Successful Public Speakers Never Say

5 Things Successful Public Speakers Never Say | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

As speakers and presenters in the business world, we use words every day to close deals, gain funding, earn trust, win approval, and further our cause,” says Darlene Price, president of Well Said, Inc. and author of “Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results.

 

“As a successful speaker, there are certain words and phrases you can always count on to help you connect well with your audience,” she says. For instance, saying “thank you” shows appreciation for your audience’s time and attention. Starting with, “The purpose of this presentation is to…” declares the goal of your talk. And using phrases like “imagine if…” helps your audience visualise your message or solution. “These words and phrases can capture an audience’s attention and hold it,” she says.

Regardless of the industry or setting, effective communicators use language that captivates, motivates, and persuades others. Their choice of words is one of the crucial ways they inspire an audience to believe, buy in, and take action.

The Ideal Length for All Online Content

The Ideal Length for All Online Content | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Every so often when I’m tweeting or emailing, I’ll think: Should I really be writing so much?

 

I tend to get carried away. And for the times that I do, it sure would be nice to know if all this extra typing is hurting or helping my cause. I want to stand out on social media, but I want to do it in the right way.

 

Curious, I dug around and found some answers for the ideal lengths of tweets and titles and everything in between. Many of these could have been answered with “it depends,” but where’s the fun in that?

 

Solid research exists to show the value of writing, tweeting, and posting at certain lengths. We can learn a lot from scientific social media guidelines like these. Here’s the best of what I found.
