LinkedIn's Latest App Takes On The Office Directory

Unveiled on Wednesday, the professional network’s new offering allows users to find and view contact information for other employees at their company, essentially serving as an online directory. "Most companies have some crappy directory service that either they’ve created themselves or they’re [paying for]," Lookup’s project lead, Ankit Gupta, told Re/code. The new app seeks to replace those dysfunctional systems with a streamlined, company-specific network. Lookup users will need to verify their employer by providing a work email address. They will then be able to track down coworkers’ profiles and contact information, without entering specific filters or search terms.

Predix Cloud is designed to serve the industrial Internet—machines talking to each other to monitor and improve the efficiency of planes, trains, oil wells, wind farms, or medical equipment.

While updating their statuses, in addition to options for adding an image, tagging a friend, picking just the right sticker, or sharing their locations, they saw a new icon. It led to page called “Add a Link,” where their queries were met with relevant results from around the internet, that they could then share quickly and seamlessly with friends. “We’re piloting a new way to add a link that’s been shared on Facebook to your posts and comments,” a Facebook spokesperson confirmed to WIRED.

Sales Still Matters More than Social Media - Frank V. Cespedes. By Frank V.

Sales Still Matters More than Social Media - Frank V. Cespedes

Cespedes | 12:00 PM August 15, 2014 It’s become commonplace for observers to tout the transformative potential of digital technologies and bemoan the allegedly slow pace at which companies support these initiatives. Two recent blogs published by are representative and, I believe, wrong. Walter Frick, an HBR editor, contrasts the enthusiasm of executives for spending money on digital initiatives versus their relatively unsupportive boards. “Digital growth is appropriately a priority for a diverse swath of organizations, and boards need to get with the program,” he writes. 4 Mistakes Marketers Make When Trying to Go “Viral” - David Spitz.

By David Spitz | 11:00 AM August 6, 2014 Can we agree to kill the word “viral” – unless it’s referring to something that leads you to call a doctor, or download a security patch?

4 Mistakes Marketers Make When Trying to Go “Viral” - David Spitz

The problem with this term is that it suggests there’s something inherent in the content itself that makes it travel. The virus, once released into the wild oceans of social media, preys on its victims. In fact, quite the opposite is the case: unlike viruses, people actively choose to engage with marketing messages and to share them (or not) with friends. That’s why some have suggested describing what the best marketers create as spreadable media rather than viral content. Marketing has always been about meanings created between a company, their audience and a wider culture or community — as the great ad man Jeremy Bullmore once said, “People build brands the way birds build nests, from scraps and straws they chance upon.”

Mistake 1: Trying to start from third gear. Facebook ad clickthrough rates 2014. Value/Importance: ★★★★★ Recommended link: Facebook ad research With the continued decline in organic reach in Facebook, opportunities for brands to get visibility for their brand page status updates is getting severely limited. According to this Social@Ogilvy report, the organic reach of brands’ posts may soon reach zero, meaning that brands will no longer be able to reach their Facebook fans at zero cost. They recommend advertising as one option, which begs the question of the clickthrough rates and costs of Facebook ads. This new report from Facebook retargeting service AdRoll provides useful data for brands to make the case for investment in Facebook advertising. The research shows that overall clickthrough rates of both News Feed targeting on desktop and mobile were significantly better than general web retargeting according to the report, with desktop having 8.1x higher CTR and mobile having 9.1x higher CTR.

Few Consumers Actually Heed Social Media - Ed O'Boyle. By Ed O'Boyle | 1:03 PM June 23, 2014 Ever since Facebook first introduced brand pages in 2007, companies have been flocking to social media. Many business leaders believe that the more they post and share about their products and services, the greater their chances of attracting customers and generating revenue. Holiday discounts offered to travellers with a large number of social media followers.

Marketing & Advertising Tourism & Travel Offering deals to social network users with a large number of followers is based on the logic that the cost of the discount will hopefully be outweighed by the subsequent exposure and publicity. We’ve already seen the model employed by fashion brand Volga Verdi, and now Hotelied is looking to apply the same thought process to the travel industry. Hotelied is focused on serving “lifestyle” properties and luxury four-star and above hotels. It offers these organizations the opportunity to target heavy discounts towards influential travellers with a large amount of social media clout, but deals can also be targeted towards travellers from certain industries — for example, users who work in fashion or entertainment — or to frequent travellers. When the model works, it offers a win-win for both the organizations offering the discount, and the consumer.

How Target’s ‘Awesome Shop’ Uses Pinterest To Boost Sales. Jive, Microsoft, IBM & Salesforce leaders du Social Software 2013 selon Gartner. L’édition 2013 du Magic Quadrant « Social Software in the Workplace » de Gartner vient de consacrer les 4 éditeurs Jive, Microsoft, IBM et Salesforce comme les leaders du marché, sur un total de 20 protagonistes. Donc rien de surprenant, à part la faible présence d’éditeurs français, représentés uniquement par BlueKiwi. Ce qui est plutôt intéressant, c’est d’observer cette dynamique du marché sur les dernières années, et constater que le haut du panier a été souvent trusté par les mêmes acteurs, et que les concentrations ont fait en sorte que le nombre d’intervenants soit plus limité. Ainsi, depuis 2007 et jusqu’à la récente édition 2013, 70 éditeurs ont figuré au total dans le Magic Quadrant mais seulement 7 étaient présents à chaque édition ! The Future of Advertising: 'Pay-Per-Gaze' Is Just the Beginning.

Advertising is going to change more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 100. If you need proof of that, just look at the patent Google was granted Thursday for a Google Glass-based ad system. Dubbed "pay-per-gaze," the content would charge advertisers for the number of times someone literally looked at their ad. The concept is buried pages deep in a patent for a "gaze tracking technique ... implemented with a head-mounted gaze-tracking device that communicates with a server. " It would likely make money hand over fist, and is clearly the main future-focused impetus for the patent. But it's far from the only one. Est-ce la fin du social commerce ? Le Facebook Shopping est une pratique dont nous avons beaucoup parlé en 2011. Building Customer Communities Is the Key to Creating Value - Bill Lee.

By Bill Lee | 1:00 PM February 1, 2013 What are your customers telling their friends and colleagues about your business? As I described in my last post, your prospective customers and buyers increasingly learn about you from their peers — including your current customers — while tending more and more to ignore traditional sales and marketing communications from corporate. Companies are now taking advantage of this new marketing reality, becoming more skilled at getting their customers to advocate for them, create peer influence in their markets, and make important contributions in areas like product development and services.

Creating and capturing such value from customer relationships doesn’t just happen, no matter how stellar your products and services are.
