Stephen Dale's insight:

Heavily biased towards brands and marketing, but some useful data nevertheless. Personally, I'd like to see more examples of how social media is being used for personal development, collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Stephen Dale's insight:

If I could summarise this article in just a few words it would be:

Brands (marketing) need to make a paradigm shift from targeting their messages at monochrome "consumers", and realise that consumers are in fact people, all of us different, and all of us on different journeys. People (not consumers) are more likely to use a product if they perceive the 'brand' understands some things about them.

Here's a great post on the next upgrade in social media interactions that suggests we move from conversations to actual storytelling.


I like how the author, Bob Deutsch, makes a case for this and offers us specific steps to take for making the transition.

May 2015 bring us enhanced storytelling and success in all our social media efforts.

Modern marketing remains a dynamic pursuit, always evolving. We are continually learning how our brains work and as such we know more today than ever before about how to engage people and move them to take an action.

The author of this post Bob Deutsch says "Whatever the offering—dinner entrée, smartphone, a piece of clothing, or what have you—to be successful a product or brand story must feed people's appetite for self-expansion. Self-expansion isn't just a business driver, it’s a life driver. Self-expansion moves everything forward."
