Snapchat is adding ways to optimize campaign performance with the help of machine learning.  Earlier this month, Snap Inc. began rolling out what it calls Goal-Based Bidding (GBB). The option, available to marketers buying ads through Snapchat's API, uses machine learning to know which users are most likely to swipe a certain type of ad.

An elephant in the room? Globalization in the US and other mature economies

An elephant in the room? Globalization in the US and other mature economies | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Caroline Freund, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, deconstructs the elephant graph.

While the elephant diagram contributes to our understanding of global inequality, the common interpretation that rich countries lost ground because of globalization is misguided. The evidence suggests that to begin with, most people in wealthy countries did well over the period analyzed. In addition, several fundamental changes other than international economic integration were bigger factors in income growth over time.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jacob Smart because he explains how your website needs to be prepared for a mobile-first digital market.

 

Businesses need to understand the elements of mobile friendly and mobile SEO in order to be successful.

 

How to Understand Mobile Purchasing Methods

 

Your business can achieve improved conversion rates with the application of best practices for mobile usage. I agree that knowing how this is done today can help you get seen.

 

Smart explains how to maximize your website for better results.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A mobile-friendly website means the user's journey is both smooth and efficient. This includes having a responsive design and content that is easily viewable on all platforms.

 

  • A mobile-seo website goes beyond a responsive design, and includes search engine optimization for higher visibility in search. This involves keyword usage, a mobile sitemap, mobile indexing, and more.

 

  • Making sure your website readily adapts to any device is important to both mobile-friendly and mobile-seo. Not only should it be responsive, but should also be set up as a dynamic URL with different code for mobile devices.

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are...” into a Google search  to see the stereotypes.

This is not just another Millennial report. This report presents new findings with fresh insights  from the perspective of both employers and employees. As world of work experts, we have nearly 30,000 employees advising 400,000 clients on hiring decisions and talent development every year. We find work for 3.4 million people—about half of whom are Millennials.

We carried out quantitative research across 25 countries surveying 19,000 Millennials, including 8,000 ManpowerGroup associate employees and more than 1,500 of our own hiring managers. We asked what they look for in a job, what development opportunities they seek and what would make them stay with an employer. We wanted to understand how different they are or aren’t from the rest of the workforce and from generations before them. We wanted to ensure that the sample represented all working Millennials; not just the top percent of tech-savvy earners, but also the graduates and non-graduates across all industries, income and education levels.

Visualizing the flow of the world's migrants from country to country.

 

Based on data from the U.N. Population Division, this map shows the estimated net migration (inflows minus outflows) by origin and destination country between 2010 and 2015.

Blue circles = positive net migration (more inflows). Red circles = negative net migration (more outflows). Each yellow dot represents 1,000 people.

Hover over a circle to see that country’s total net migration between 2010 and 2015. Click a circle to view only the migration flows in and out of that country.

Guest Post: Time Keeps on Slipping (So, use it productively)!

Paying enough effort and time is a key to success. However, sometimes the effort and time are not enough to get what you want. The matter is that we get the desired result when we properly use all the resources available. In this lies the real effectiveness that can help you to achieve what you want.

There are thousands of examples when people have several spare hours per day for accomplishing their goals but they never get what they want. And there are thousands of examples when people who have almost no free time get everything they want: they combine work and study, family and business, travel and full-time job. Why does this happen? In fact, the answer to this question lies in personal productivity and ability to manage time properly.
