I selected this article from Curatti written by Greg Satell because it provides insights on how industries are affected by innovation and technology.

 

Understanding the affect of innovation and the Internet of things in business.

 

How Technology Has Changed Companies

 

We are experiencing new technological changes like never before in Internet history. I agree that we need to understand this affect for our own business productivity.

 

Satell explains the various changes in technology, and which industries have been affected.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Agriculture is greatly impacted by innovation. Ecology is now data driven, which directly affects our water systems. This sector is now partnering with big tech companies like IBM.

 

  • Digital connectivity continues to transform physical machines. The age of the computer has evolved instead of gone away.

 

  • Water is the new oil because of technological advances. This means that we can be more efficient commercially and that is good news for politics.

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Start by measuring the sales from your marketing campaigns minus the investment you put into them, and then dividing this number. This will give you insights on trade-offs of what works and what doesn't.

 

  • It's important to differentiate between ROI investments and financial statements. Find out whether you are including things like corporate expenses in your measurements.

 

  • Stick to the programs that you can measure. Digital content is something you can gather data on with proven results.

 because it explains the difference between B2B and B2C in eCommerce.

 

It's important to know how and why customers interact on your business website.

 

The Difference Between Buyer Journeys and Customers

 

When building a business in the digital age you need to understand how your prospects are making purchasing decisions and why. I agree that both B2B and B2C play into eCommerce websites.

 

Foster explains what causes your customers to make a purchase and how to improve your approach.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • In B2B purchasing there is always a problem that needs to be solved within a business. Buyers in this situation want to look for the best deal and product or service for their employers.

 

  • A B2C website is usually aimed at capturing the reader's attention right away. The next step is to convince them to make a purchase.

 

  • It takes account management to make a B2B sale work along with relationship management. In B2C it's all about customer service and followup via email.

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Use specific hashtags for events and conferences in your niche. Go through these posts and 'like' them throughout the day.

 

  • Check out the competition and influencers to see who they are following. If the accounts relate to your business then follow these and engage on their posts.

 

  • Ask your community to tag their friends in your posts. Don't do this all of the time, but rather mix it into your mobile marketing strategy.

Here's what caught my attention:

27 SEO Essentials for Every Long-Form Blog Post

27 SEO Essentials for Every Long-Form Blog Post | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

'As I’ve learned from years of blogging, long-form content is one of the best methods of making your site stand out from everyone else’s. 


Of course, your content can’t just be long. It also has to be deep. If you can nail it, you’ll drive a ton of traffic and gain thousands of followers. 


A lot of people think the formula is simple.


Yes, the formula is simple, but it doesn’t work automatically just because you have a long article. I’ve seen lots of people write super long, in-depth articles, but they’re not getting the kind of traffic they want. 


That’s because they’re not thinking about some of the fundamental elements of SEO — things that your long-form blog post needs. If you have detailed long-form content, that’s awesome.


But you need to doctor it up with SEO in mind if you want the content to be effective. 


Trust me, I know this can be difficult. You’re already putting a lot of effort into the content, and it’s hard to remember all of the SEO involved. 


So I compiled this list to help you out. These are 27 SEO must-haves for every long-form article': http://neilpatel.com/blog/seo-essentials/

12 Marketing, Blog, and Business Tools for More Sales

 

With the right tools you can help your bottom line and reach grow. I agree that in order to build a business online it's important to take advantage of what's available.

 

Gilbert provides the best tools to help make your brand stand out on Instagram and your blog.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Pinterest is one of the best social networks to attract buyers and website subscribers. The jQuery Pin It Button highlights your blog images for easy pinning.

 

  • You no longer have to just use a mobile device to manage your Instagram account(s). Grum helps you to schedule your images and posts ahead of time with related hashtags and emojis.

 

  • There are a lot of CRM products out there -- one of the best to check out is from Hubspot. Their free tool helps you to gain valuable insights on your leads and monitor your community.
