This article is very useful, especially more-so for individuals like Dallan who do not use Twitter. It shows the huge potential that this marketing channel has to a business (whether it's big or small) and how these techniques are a quick-fire way to take advantage of the platform. Props to Dallan for discovering this article, and hopefully it assists him in future endeavours.

This is a really good article at giving out quick Don'ts & Do's of how to get RTs on Twitter. Not only will it help with RTs but can also help the company/person on twitter gain more followers as well and create more hype through social media, build brand awareness and loaylty.


As technological advances are ever growing in today's society nationally as well as Internationally, this definitely can raise a higher consumer following as well as engagement with consumers and potential consumers in regards to positive and negative feedback, conversation starters, education and much more. It's a great way for universal consumer engagement and for them to also follow how a company is going, what's the latest updates, other specials on offer, links to other media means.

This article worked as more of an understanding for me as I have never tweeted yet alone used twitter before. The writer of the article talks about how engagement is measured through the amount of re-tweets you receive/gain. My understanding allows me to agree with what the writer is saying, because when you thinking about it, the more re-tweets you receive the more people are interacting with your account and not just looking at it. By re-tweeting they acknowledging that they understand your content and show some sort of agreement or share similar values. Most of the tips how ever do seem quite basic and I look at them as more of reinforcing my ideas or a checklist before I would summit something online. The article in my opinion needs a bit more information on the on the topic of engagement and why it could be a positive, otherwise the tips could be seen as quite pointless in terms of what your actually trying to achieve.

"The simple secret that can transform your marketing strategy."


This article refers to IMC, through customer engagement. This stated at the beginning of the article:


"companies are struggling to seperate themselves from the digital noise and to draw meaningful attention and interest from their current and potential customers." - This realates directly to this weeks focus, Customer Engagement.


This article debates the struggle companies face in which marketing their product to the extreme may not always be efficient enough to ensure customer loyalty. The argument is its not about the advertising or message but providing utility and true value for the customer.


- Immediate conversations with the customer

- Providing true value and utility for the customer

- To make the customers life easier

- Create better customer experience


 " If you sell something, you make a customer today; if you help someone you make a customer for life." - Jay Baer


Utilitarianism marketing = Youtility = Marketing thats wanted by customers = Creates long term value between a company and their customers. 


Customer Engagement refers the customer at the core of marketing. The relevance, and how a customer will engage if what is being marketed is relevant to that customer. Therefore this article focus on the customers needs rather than the companys wants (for marketing purposes). This is applied through the theory of ' YOUTILITY' - finging customers weakened point and finding solutions to make their lives easier, therfore creating value.

The article has clearly illustrated what is the core value of consumer engagement. What are consumers looking for? “ Utility “ a great component that influence consumer behavior. Utility can be defined as usefulness, serviceability and how practical it can be. People now days are searching for life style problem solving programme to make ease of their life, therefore it is vital that marketer carefully identify what our consumer really looking for, and efficient marketing strategy such as utilitarianism marketing, which is focused on consumer life style reality and value adding. Alysee has identfied 4 elements that are the “utility ” our consumers are looking for, and four of them can result in an increasing consumer engagement.

Jay Baer has published Youtility: Why Smart Marketing Is About Help Not Hype. It is mainly talking about what is Youtility, how to build up a long-term relationship and trust with the customer, and what is the difference between selling and helping.
It is all about how to involve consumer instead of focus on what marketer want we pay more attention on what consumer need.
