Why the marketing technology genie isn't going back into the IT bottle InformationWeek just published a guest article of mine, Why Marketing Should Run Its Own Technology. While I’ve been advocating greater technology leadership to marketers for a while, this is my first attempt to “reach across the aisle” and make my case directly to the IT community. Always up for a lively conversation, I don’t pull any punches, describing three structural differences in this new era of technology-driven marketing that I believe will limit IT’s ability to control it. Admittedly, in the seemingly zero-sum game of corporate budgets and power, ceding anything is rarely a popular opinion. But if IT can better understand the forces behind these changes, I hope it will inspire open discussion and fresh ideas for embracing the future. Because in the big picture, this isn’t a zero-sum game inside an organization — the real competition is in the marketplace. A recent report by the CMO Council and Accenture, surveying both CMO’s and CIO’s, reached two conclusions.

Metadata – the New Language of Marketing October 28, 2010 Monday I talked about the social networking bubble. Marketers are getting sucked into the social-networking vortex and can’t find their way out. Business information is just getting started. Metadata is the new lingua-franca of business. Accurate metadata is the new currency of marketing. Markets are conversations. Personal data will shift the power balance in the conversations. Example: media. Example: authentication and authorization. Interruption advertising will have to change. Brands will never recover. The Open Web will overtake today’s silo-based social web, giving people the ability to manage relationships and data from anywhere, any time, using any device, without relying on a single company or web site. Your industry needs your help, and you can’t afford to ignore it any longer. SEO will still be valuable, and it will keep evolving. What I’m describing are the arms, legs, trunk, and ears of the pull elephant.

Anatomie d’une Landing Page qui Convertit Très Bien Une landing page est une page de votre site dont l’objectif est d’amener vos lecteurs à accomplir une action précise telle qu’effectuer un achat par exemple. L’optimisation d’une landing page consiste à améliorer le pourcentage de visiteurs de votre site web qui sont convertis en clients ou qui génèrent un lead (comme remplir un formulaire). Une landing page réussie est optimisée au niveau de son contenu et des éléments visuels qui la composent.

I’m a marketer with expertise in content marketing and curation. You’ve probably never heard of me. With over 500 million users on Twitter, 175 million on LinkedIn, and over a billion on Facebook, you probably haven’t heard of most people on the Internet. That said, I’m certainly not here to tell you how flooded the Internet is and discourage you from jumping into the information pool. In a digital world characterized by an overwhelming amount of noise, everyone is struggling to find relevant content from people and brands with an expertise on a specific subject. According to Michael Brenner, cofounder of Business 2 Community, content curation is the process of identifying relevant content for your audience from multiple sources, modifying or editing that content to reflect the needs of your audience and delivering the content to the appropriate channels of distribution. The truth is, you’re probably already curating content. Enter a platform like

The Secrets of What Makes a Product Go Viral Ten years ago, had you ever heard of the hand sanitizer Purell? It existed, but nobody really used it. Then one day, it was everywhere. Grocery stores placed dispensers at the door, nail salons gave it to clients, and people started carrying travel size bottles in their bags. With little advertising, how did Purell catch on? Jonah Berger, an assistant professor of marketing at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, has dedicated his career to answering that question. "People often think that contagious products just get lucky," Berger says. According to Berger's research, specific circumstances and attributes empower consumers to share a given product.

Meet Lior Ron, The Guy In Charge Of Google's Big Attempt To Kill Samsung And Apple With An 'X Phone' Google's $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola wasn't just for patents. It wants to make a phone that can compete with the iPhone and Samsung's successful line of Galaxy phones. To make those phones, it chose Lior Ron to lead development of an "X Phone" at Motorola, the Wall Street Journal reports. From the outside looking in, Ron appears to be an unusual choice to develop a new smartphone for Motorola. For the last five years he's been working on mapping projects at Google. While good maps are important for a smartphone, they are hardly the deciding factor for anyone looking at buying a new smartphone. He appears to have no hardware experience. He lists himself as the cofounder of two companies — GaitAid and Mapsicle. Google needs Motorola to deliver a hit. Beyond the smartphone profits, Google is concerned about the growing influence of Samsung. Forking would mean that Samsung takes the base layer of Android, then starts customizing it. We don't know what Samsung is going to do.
