The Experience Economy | Ziglar | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it
Let me share a concept from a phenomenal book called The Experience Economy by Joe Pine and James Gilmore. What I learned from that book is when coffee first hits the market as a commodity, it costs about $1 a pound. Not much differentiation at this point other than the type of bean. Once it is packaged and appears on the shelf at the grocery store, it becomes a good.

Why Social Is the New SEO

Why Social Is the New SEO | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

Matt Cutts’ video on the role of social media in SEO suggests that future search results may provide tighter integration with social results. It’s evident that the web is an intensely social place.

 

Maybe the size of your social empire is irrelevant. But your social presence is very relevant when it comes to search'.

“Flash Boys” by Michael Lewis is mostly a book about finance and high-frequency traders. But it’s also a morality tale.

From the article- And here’s a phenomenon often true in innovation stories: The people who go to work pursuing knowledge, or because they intrinsically love writing code, sometimes end up making more money than the people who go to work pursuing money as their main purpose.

Report: 76% of Professionals Using Curation Saw an Impact on Business Goals

Report: 76% of Professionals Using Curation Saw an Impact on Business Goals | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

During the first quarter of 2014, Scoop.it conducted a survey of over 1,500 professionals who had been using content curation as a part of their content strategy over the previous year. While it’s old news that more marketers are turning to content marketing and curation & making more space in their strategies for both, we wanted to find out what actually happened once these professionals had taken the proverbial leap.

Content Curation and its importance in business

Lynn Pineda's curator insight, April 11, 8:00 AM

This survey shows how curating content has helped business professionals, no matter what your profession is, as it's not just for Real Estate. Keeping up with content needs can sometimes be challenging and curating content can help us to reach our goals. Scoop.it needs to be included more in my strategy, that's for sure!

There are some really interesting points made about the brain, e.g. how its thinking is based on schemas, such as prejudices. However what is not taken into account is how much thinking is mediated by the emotions, Audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

Great Leaders Do Not Walk on Water | QSB Insight

Great Leaders Do Not Walk on Water | QSB Insight | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it
The essentials

In an excerpt from his recently published book, The Science of Leadership, Julian Barling, Borden Chair of Leadership at Queen's School of Business, writes that the smallest things leaders choose to do (but do not have to) not only inspire followers, they re-inspire them again and again. Such actions from their leaders convey the trust, respect, self-efficacy, and sense of belonging that employees crave. As well, when effective leaders make a mistake, they take ownership and apologize.

Robin Good's curator insight, February 18, 9:24 AM



What's ahead of us when it comes to web publishing? How will the tools, methods and approaches to design, to create and to package news and information change over the course of the next few years?


In the second part of this article, I am looking at these key trends:


1) Dusk of Blogs
How blogs are changing their role and importance within the information ecosystem.


2) Beyond WordPress
WordPress has been a revolutionary tool for small and large independent web publishers. But in its fantastic growth, it may have lost track of its true original purpose. What's there now to replace it?


3) Instant Publishing
When it comes to publishing online, it's not just "ease of use" that web publishers want. Immediacy, real-time, is the new in high-demand frontier. How rapidly can you go from thinking of a promotion or a new report to actually having a professional-looking page of it online?


4) Invisible UI
Just-in-time interface controls are the future. The time of multiple toolbars with tens of buttons and icons, is definitely over. The new UI is basically invisible... until you need it.


5) Design Intelligence
The web design and publishing ecosystem presently doesn't allow for non-technical people to create and maintain professional-looking websites without having to heavily depend on a web design studio or agency. This is about to change. Rapidly.


6) Design Marketplaces
Big opportunity ahead for those who will make it easy and efficient to find, select and organize the best web design templates available out there in a fast, easy and effective fashion.

The Gift of Giving : Why I Do Favors and Don't Expect Anything in Return | Goins, Writer | Business in the Digital Era | Scoop.it

Amy Melendez's insight:

"Help People" - This works for me. Everyone's definition of success or "what works" is different. Be true to yourself and the vision that you have. -- Amy

 

From the post: That may not be the case for everyone, but I like teaching and coaching. It gives me life. And maybe that’s the lesson here: Find what you love to do, what you would do even if you didn’t get paid, and do it. 

 

The best way to build a reputation

I’ve heard a lot of people recently ask me how to build a platform — how to attract an audience and keep them coming back. I’m sure there is more than one way to do it, but the very best that I’ve found is simply this: help people.
