The first thing every marketer learns is to listen to his audience. Remember Google Glass? On January 15, 2015, Google announced that it would stop producing the Google Glass. What had happened? A genius team worked on the great idea, they invented the technology of the feature, but there was no audience for it. To know what your audience wants is the most basic part of marketing.
It’s almost time for summer vacation and all you can think about are beaches, forested mountains and cold beverages. But, there are also events in the digital marketing world you’ll want to think about before you hit the trails.
What’s new in SEO?
The search space has been lately engaged in an algorithm updates race.
On April 21st Google hit mobile search with its long-awaited Google Mobile-Friendly Update and only the mice in the fields remain ignorant of this. The experts from Google pointed that Mobilegeddon was even larger than Penguin or Panda. According to a recent study twice as many non-mobile friendly pages lost rankings as gained after the Mobile Update. If you have not yet re-optimized your website to meet mobile-friendly guidelines, you’d better start working on it before you take that vacation. Continue Reading >>
What is the bottom line of the deal between Google and Twitter that switches the firehose back on?
You must know by now that Google will shortly return more real-time social media content to its search results because of a new Google-Twitter partnership. Yes, Twitter will open out its arms for Google again in order to give Google the power to index and implement more Twitter data into its search results.

Have you ever had the pleasure of watching Mad Men? I am a huge fan of this TV drama series that describes the structure and code of the marketing world of the 1960s and uncovers the concepts of TV, radio and newspaper advertising campaigns and commercials in a fascinating, sticky way. This drama is full of inimitable genius characters. Here we have Don Draper with his hidden split personality, full of secrets, feminism-driven Peggy Olson with her keen desire to rule in a man’s world and many other characters we, marketers, can drive inspiration from. But what I like the most is their feel for marketing, I love the way they put teeth into effective advertising campaigns. Those guys and gals, in real life, wrote a major chapter in the history of modern marketing. I think, every marketer should watch the episode with Don’s Kodak slide projector ad pitch called “Carousel”. Isn’t it brilliant? He pulls on human sentiments but bases it all on his own experience. This helped to add a personal touch to the ad which is essential for today’s marketing approach. Continue Reading >>
