Are We Too Excited By Excitement? via @Curagami

Are We Too Excited By Excitement?  via @Curagami | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Maybe our web marketing needs to slow down, build online community and curate more? Thomas Hellum's slow TV provides valuable lessons in what's next online.

Here are a few of Slow TV's valuable lessons in the creation of sustainable online community:

  • Social media + mobile = powerful community building tools combination.
  • Happening NOW creates an “event-like” atmosphere especially if you don’t edit the timeline.
  • Pre-sell community with an ASK, “What do you want to see”.
  • Use the web for support before, during and after event.

  • Almost 75% share on mobile
  • 1B Facebook users on mobile

Fix Mobile Ecom Change World and Stripe Is Halfway Home

Fix Mobile Ecom Change World and Stripe Is Halfway Home | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Stripe Story
Can a couple of 20 somethings change the world? Stripe's answer is a strong affirmative YES. Stripe is fixing the biggest barrier to the social / mobile / connected web. We can't buy stuff on our phones.

Phones are, to use the founders of Stripe's words, "Clunky" (watch that video here:  http://cnnmon.ie/1DxDZMG ). Why is the phone the lynchpin? Stop thinking of your phone as a phone.

Think of your phone as a PORTAL, game console and magic wand. Soon "see a thing, buy a thing" will be taken for granted but only if the Stipers can make mobile payments less "clunky".

I poked around on their site some and would say they are half way down a very interesting road. Why is the phone the lynchpin? Because once payments work on phones they work ANYWHERE.

Once payments work anywhere social commerce becomes a reality and "see a thing, hear a thing, buy a thing" a reality. Extend the logic further and ask, "What is a website?".

If we can wrap "see, click, buy" tech on phones we can do so on Facebook, the Redbox machine and the grocery store. Scan those fritos with your phone and Harris Teeter or Wegmans or Kroger bills your account.

NO CHECKOUT because your PHONE is the checkout. Fix ecom on the phone, change the world.

Startup SpotTrot Rocks STUFF For Dave Matthews & Others [Friends of Marty's]

Startup SpotTrot Rocks STUFF For Dave Matthews & Others [Friends of Marty's] | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it
The chart-topping and award-winning songwriter also loves technology. His investment in Charlottesville, Va.-based SpotTrot is letting musicians, entertainers, sports teams and athletes sell goods over mobile devices for the first time.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

If you don't know about the cool Mobile App my friends Patrick and Blake at SpotTrot have created you should and you will. Love how Blake and Patrick narrowed their focus, understood their very cool customers’ needs and began fixing stuff so bands can make money from STUFF. Since few bands make money from "record" sales anymore STUFF pays the bills and SpotTrot helps. 

Very cool. Love it when friends with great ideas make good, and there are lessons for all startup entrepreneurs in SpotTrot's victory including:

* Narrow your focus. 
* Find real pain points and solve the problem. 
* Doing something COOL helps scale.
* Start ugly and improve as you go.

* Listen more than you talk.

* Innovate and then innovate again. 
* MOBILE is changing everything.

Why Bitcoin Is A MASSIVE Startup Opportunity

Why Bitcoin Is A MASSIVE Startup Opportunity | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Bitcoin, Ecommerce, Money & Value Systems
In three posts I've tried to understand how Bitcoin changes ecommerce:

Bitcoin, Money & Value Systems (on G+)
https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/YLFe4ow4rok

Bitcoin Manifesto (on @Scoop.it)
http://sco.lt/8SkV4D

And this post about Bitcoin and #startups. Bitcoin as infrastructure could change everything from online ecommerce to how we pay for groceries and a coke from a vending machine.

Sure the infrastructure to achieve such a vision is largely lacking presently, but it wasn't that long ago we didn't have an Internet either. Here is how I'm going to tune my Bitcoin radar:

* Learn how to install Bitcoin commerce (nothing is easy now, but first movers will get huge benefits).
* Understand how and where Bitcoin could create the greatest impact such as http://www.curagami.com client http://www.moon-audio.com.
* Understand how Bitcoin's platform could connect to other major trends such as social, mobile and connection.

The reason I want to understand how to install Bitcoin commerce is 1. It Ain't Easy Now and 2. Customers with large international buying groups could benefit the most and the fastest. Moon-Audio sells their magical audio cables all over the world. What they've been lacking is an easy way to safely sell around the world.

if there is even a tiny chance Bitcoin can fill those shoes I'm interested and a student. If anyone reading this has resources about how to install Bitcoin commerce please share.

Minority Report? The 'Internet of Business Things' video interview via WSJ

Minority Report? The 'Internet of Business Things' video interview via WSJ | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

As more things get connected to each other, how can businesses capitalize on the growing 'Internet of Things?' PricewaterhouseCoopers chief technologist Chris Curran joins the News Hub with Sara Murray.

Marty Note
Turns out a forgettable movie, Tom Cruise's Minority Report,  may be prescient for our Internet of Things Future. Fascinating interview with WSJ's Sarah Murray and Price Waterhouse's Chris Curran explores tapping and mashing up the "real data' that's all around us now.

How can we replace guesses with real data.

Retail is "an interesting one" because it involves people and places. Emerging uses of sensors. Others are not so obvious like the power business where sensors can help "optimize the process".

In last 15 years, eCommerce marketing has evolved a lot. It's no longer confined to keyword stuffing or PPC. In 2013, website optimization, guest blogging and responsive design was in vogue.


* Mobile optimization: Agree!

* Targeting wearable devices: Too Early (talk about more than target in 2014).
* Long-form content: Agree! (stories are about to rule the world).
* Social and search ads: Agree!
* Authorship branding: Agree!
* Omni-channel user experience: Agree!
* Better delivery: Agree!
Local SEO: For some this makes sense.
