janlgordon's curator insight, May 19, 6:41 PM

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.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Shiju Mathe because it provides several ways to be successful in leveraging multiple platforms.

 

Audiences no longer connect with a brand with just one platform.

 

Successful Cross Platform eCommerce Strategies

 

When building a business online you want to reach your community where they are. I agree that in order to attract customers you need to be active in multiple online entities.

 

Mathe explains the best ways to perform cross-channel marketing from your business website.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Understand your key objectives, target market, and brand message before tackling the digital aspects. Determine what your ultimate goal is and what the end result should look like from your customers.

 

  • Develop a communication strategy that will be adopted to the cross-platform work. It's important that your audience recognizes your brand voice on all platforms.

 

  • Provide reminders for your customers and leads through retargeting methods. This will encourage them to revisit your website and reconsider what you have to offer.

janlgordon's curator insight, January 2, 5:52 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Tony Zambito because it provides insights on how digital and online information has transformed content marketing.

 

The idea of strategizing content has diminished over the last few years due to mobile and technology trends.

 

Why Context is More Important Than Content

 

Content should be tailored for your audience and what makes sense to them specifically. I agree that you can reach more people by reducing the amount of information being presented to them.

 

Zambito explains the basics of context in how it relates to today's online consumer.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • In order to be effective marketers need to understand the method of a connected series of stories. These should involve goal-directed behaviors and activities of buyers.

 

  • When it comes to effectively using context timing is critical. It's about what buyers are experiencing over time rather than a specific trigger.

 

  • Understanding the goals of your audience will help you move toward context. Not doing so can lead to content marketing failure.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Daniel Newman because it provides insights on the state of marketing in 2017.

 

Visibility is still an important factor in developing a marketing strategy.

 

Understanding The New Marketing Trends

 

How customers see your business impacts your visibility online. I agree that in order to garner their attention in this next year you need find out what they are looking for in a brand, and why.

 

Newman shows the latest changes in marketing and the impact that digital technology has played.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • In the age of digital transformation it will be even more important to be focused on your customers. The most successful will be able to understand their target market.

 

  • Executives must be data-driven in order to effectively engage and measure their campaigns. Technology will continue to be a necessary component.

 

  • While content is still king it is video that continues to climb to the top in preference for audiences. Augmented reality will also play a large part in online engagement.

These Charts Show How Globalization Has Gone Digital

These Charts Show How Globalization Has Gone Digital | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
Just 15 years ago, cross-border digital flows were almost non-existent. Today, they exert a larger impact on global economic growth than traditional flows of goods, which developed over centuries.

Via Seth Dixon, Jane Ellingson
Stan Smith's insight:

"Yes, globalization. For many people, that word conjures up, at best, images of container ships moving manufactured goods from far-flung factories. At worst, it harkens back to acrid debates about trade deficits, currency wars and jobs moving to China. In fact, since the Great Recession of 2008, the global flow of goods and services has flattened, and cross-border capital flows have declined sharply. But globalization overall isn't on the wane. Like so much in our world today, it has reinvented itself by going digital."

I selected this article from Curatti written by Tony Zambito because it explains how to digital transformation has changed the way businesses understand their customers.

 

The new digital-centric world and customer reach.

 

New Customer Approaches Emerge in the Digital Age

 

If your business has been online for any amount of time you already know how emerging trends have changed the customer journey. I agree that in order to reach them you need to approach them on their level.

 

Zambito explains different methods of reaching your audience in the midst of a digital age.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Just sixteen years ago the business landscape was very different. Today digital technology has shifted buyer persona development and insight gathering.

 

  • In order to reach customers today there needs to be new thinking and new approaches in place. This needs to go beyond analytics tools and outdated sales practices.

 

  • The what, how and why of your audience must now be measured through observation. Words are far less effective in measurement -- it's action that counts.

Understanding the human experience in the age of technology

 

Are You Relying Too Much on Automation?

 

We are experiencing new technological advances like never before. I agree that in order to reach your customers in the digital age you need to connect with them on a human level.

 

Kramer explains how to make meaningful connections and understand the balance of technology.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • We are able to keep in touch with our community even more today online, but we can easily miss personal contact through this. In person meetings are still the best way to reach people.

 

  • We are always on the hunt for more context and meaning. This is necessary to fully understand someone -- these subtleties are not possible with communication online.

 

  • With the rise of chatbots we can lose the art of persuasion. Humans still crave understanding, and knowing that your business is actively listening to them.

Understand digital disruption instead of avoiding it

 

Are You Ready for New Technology?

 

We are experiencing new trends and digital experiences like never before. I agree that in order to harness its full power you need to embrace the latest changes.

 

Jantsch explains what technology means to your business and how to keep up with the pace.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • In ten years we will see less cashier workers, travel agents and social media managers. It's time to move forward into the next decade of digital influence.

 

  • The new trend is a virtual office without a large number of employees. As a result there are better products and services being delivered.

 

  • People are getting older and living longer. This opens up a whole new industry in the medical field in both care and technology.

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive

How to Recover Data from Not Formatted Hard Drive | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
If your external hard drive keeps asking you to format it after you have tried all kinds of solutions, you can download free MiniTool Power Data Recovery which is an excellent program that brings file recovery to Windows to have a try. Follow these steps to carry out data recovery process from not formatted external hard drive:  

Step 1. Launch MiniTool Power Data Recovery, and then select "Damaged Partition Recovery". You can see this module is specially designed for recovering data from damaged, RAW, or formatted partition when moving mouse over it. So it is most suitable for not formatted hard drive data recovery. 

Step 2. Then select the external hard drive to have a full scan (We take a 16 GB Kinston flash drive for example here). The scanning time depends on the capacity of your data in it. 

Step 3. When the scanning is finished, Power Data Recovery will show you the files it has found in the hard drive in tree structure. Tick the files and click "Preview" to check whether the files are the right ones. Note: you can press "Filter" button to choose specific file types to be shown in the middle pane. 

Step 4. In this step you are expected to click "Save" and then choose a safe location (usually it is another hard drive) to store all data you have selected. After that, wait for the success.  https://www.powerdatarecovery.com/hard-drive-recovery/external-hard-drive-needs-formatting.html
