The Future of Engagement Is Big Data Plus Big Emotion

The Future of Engagement Is Big Data Plus Big Emotion | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

in a marketing landscape fueled by technology and consumer-driven behavior, brands need to combine big data plus big emotion to engage with audiences.


The tech-led empowerment of customers will only grow as the "Internet of Things" connects everything to everyone, driving down the marginal cost of production and distribution, just as technology has done with the supply of information.


Emotional fulfillment, not technology, will be the standout offering of a winning brand. People like technology -- but people mostly really like other people. The more digital life gets, the more people will value being understood, touched and involved by other people. The brands that win will be real and personable -- whether it's a live person on screen, a physical store interaction or the mass intimacy of a stadium event, from football to rock....

Per ottenere alti livelli di engagement bisogna fondere Big Data e Big Emotion.
Alle persone piace la tecnologia, ma nella maggior parte dei casi piace soprattutto avere rapporti con altre persone. E' l'essenza dei Social: uno strato tecnologico "invisibile" che abilita un'estensione potenzialmente senza limiti delle relazioni interpersonali.
Nello scenario attuale i brand devono avere voci umane, accettare e promuove conversazioni | ma tutto questo era già scritto nel Cluetrain Manifesto, 15 anni fa.

Next to high posting frequency and preemptive social engagement, profile image optimization is now the 3rd critical success factor in social media and content marketing.


This is true of all social media sites from Facebook, to Google+ to Pinterest and yes, even to your YouTube channel!


I’ve  noticed a lot of people struggling to reformat their profile images on Twitter especially due to the recent change to the large header image dimensions on the main profile page.


It’s almost impossible to get a clear and crisp image save without the precise dimensions of each image category.I was so relieved to find this extraordinary infographic that tells you the exact dimensions of each image type across all of the social media platforms – most importantly for Twitter!

I love this article because as curator and a business owner being a provacateur is essential in instigating conversation and taking a topic to another level which can lead to all kinds of opportunities. There's an art to asking questions and this just first of many pieces on this topic that you'll find on Curatti


Something to ponder.......


How can you use leverage questions to benefit your business?


Can monetary value be placed on questions?  Not really, as there are too many variables involved. But depending on the timing and manner of delivery, questions can be the ingredient that spurs innovation and growth.

 

Here's are a few highlights:

 

The rhetorical question can spur conversation and wake up a

slumbering ideas process


The joking question can lift a mood


The incisive question can take a brilliant idea into a different stratosphere


The personal question can tell a person struggling in solitude that someone in the world cares

It is vital for organizations to examine their content creation strategies in light of the rapidly evolving content marketing industry. Find out what we see as 12 essential roles for the future.... ...As Robert Rose says, “In many businesses (especially in B2B), the marketing department is an order-taking, tactical function that runs on the hamster-wheel of demand generation, trying to keep up with “client” orders for new collateral, press releases, case studies and, at times, marketing-qualified leads (MQLs).” If our new call to arms is around creating and growing owned audiences, it’s clear that our marketing skill sets may be, well, a bit out of date. The new roles of content marketing While there is no perfect structure for a marketing organization, it’s apparent that we are starting to see marketing departments transform themselves into publishing organizations. And with that transformation comes a shift in the key business roles that marketers must now fill.

$200 Million and Rising: Hollywood Struggles With Soaring Marketing Costs | Hollywood Reporter | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

In only a few weeks, Paramount'sTransformers: Age of Extinction has become the top-grossing film of all time in China, earning north of $300 million. What's more impressive is that Age of Extinction cost no more than $3 million to $5 million to market to Chinese moviegoers -- a stark contrast to the $100 million prints-and-advertising spend in North America. And multiple sources say studios now are shelling out an additional $100 million per movie to market this summer's big tentpoles internationally.


Indeed, with the exception of in China, Hollywood continues to wrestle with rising marketing costs, particularly overseas, which can make up 70 percent of a film's gross thanks to booming markets in Russia, Latin America and Asia. Two years ago, the cost had crept up to $175 million globally. Now, studios say it has hit the $200 million mark per picture -- a 33 percent increase from the $150 million spent in 2007 on the first....

This piece was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti
Collaboration across multiple skillsets is essential in any advancement, whether in the social sphere or in business.  Just as a good curator adds context related to their readership and an observation on the running of a small business can help take it to the next level, so input from people outside of the current thought leadership sphere can catapult conversations to new heights.
 
There are different types of smarts, and just because you may not feel that your writing matches up those involved in innovations that you are drawn to, does not mean that your input, providing a new angle, will not provide an ingredient that nobody even realized was missing.
 
Here are some highlights:
Technology and Social Media are branching out into many new forms at a rate few if any can keep up with.  Inevitably, natural selection comes into play, ensuring that even some of the best ideas barely see the light of day.
 
There is huge value in “multiple skillsets being employed in any process, with questions being asked by the non-experts or those with complementary skills”
 
There comes a point when a different viewpoint borne of different experiences and knowledge become essential to lift any great idea towards a new, far greater plateau
