Jesse Wojdylo835,120Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/ In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions: 1. How long have you been active on Twitter? 2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain? 3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts? 4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+? 5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+ 6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve? Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est. We will discuss if there will be a Christmas Eve event or not. Either way, join us this week!Google Plus Chat Twitter Chat2013-12-17 20:00:0053

Why Interruptive Marketing Doesn't Work

Great read on contextual marketing.

"In the traditional world of marketing I might try using a swift headline or pickup line. Or if the opportunity didn’t present itself, I could just blurt out what it was I wanted to say. And if they still didn’t engage, I’d sit there and repeat my message over and over until I got some sort of reaction. This is the interruptive model. Sure after that reaction, I may become part of a memorable story retold to others later on, but I’m quite sure it wouldn’t be in positive light."

YouTube Will Now Connect to Google Shopping for a Seamless Experience From View to Purchase

This is really big news for eCommerce, and will be a powerful indicator of the role visual marketing plays in the purchase process. 

Imagine some possibilities:

1. Watching an unboxing of a new tech gadget and being able to buy it through your Google account with a single click. 

2. Viewing a how-to video for a household DIY project and ordering all the materials needed as they display on your screen? 

3. Watching the new music video from your favorite musician, and clicking a button to upload their new album to your +Google Play account.

This is a big customer-centric advancement that will not be at all easy for competitors to copy.

Here's some detail from the article:

Developing an enterprise mobility strategy

Needs have changed. So, have expectations. Employees want their work (like everything else) at their fingertips. Is your company working to provide this? 

"Users, regardless of who they are — your people, your suppliers, your partners, your customers — are saying, 'I want mobile access to everything'," the analyst said. "Everything — not just email, not just videoconferencing. But I want CRM, ERP, full supply chain access."

Turning Data Into Art in Advertising

Really interesting look at the creative process, and how to make it better by enjoying that process and working through failure.

"I'm a person who loves to play in all aspects of my life, but especially within my work...I try to approach as much of my work as possible as play, rather than seeing it as a job. And when I look back on my body of work, I realize that the more fun and play that went into the ideas and the process of creating them, the better people seemed to respond to the end result."

Blake Griffin & Steve Ballmer Create A New Clippers Logo

If you've seen the new +LA Clippers logo and the rants that followed, you may know why it got the +Funny Or Die treatment. At least the Clippers can laugh at themselves.

Here Ballmer unveils a bunch of possible logos that look similar to other famous logos. But, when Griffin takes over with his graphic design skills, the new logo is born.

The First Ads For Apple Music

Apple sure isn't shy about patting themselves on the back in these new ads that proclaim them the current and future owners of the entertainment category. What do you think?

The first ad makes the point that music is the perfect accessory to every single activity or mood imaginable...and that Apple is the company delivering that music to everyone all over the world.

The second ad shows how finding, purchasing, and enjoying music has changed over the years, and when it was in trouble Apple came to the rescue and saved the day with iTunes and the iPod...and now Apple Music.

The third ad focuses on the Apple Music service more specifically with spokesman Trent Reznor, what it provides to music fans, and to the artists that create it. They talk about the streaming feature and round the clock DJs,... more »

The second ad shows how finding, purchasing, and enjoying music has changed over the years, and when it was in trouble Apple came to the rescue and saved the day with iTunes and the iPod...and now Apple Music.

The third ad focuses on the Apple Music service more specifically with spokesman Trent Reznor, what it provides to music fans, and to the artists that create it. They talk about the streaming feature and round the clock DJs, but more importantly the ad highlights "Connect ", a feature that allows artists to share exclusive content more directly with fans.

With Apple Music, Apple plans to take a big hand in shaping music as an industry and culture going forward. How do you feel about the ads? About Apple's newly unveiled offerings?___

Zombie Apps, a threat to the enterprise

Hmmm, I wish the image with this one was a little more zombie-focused. Oh well. Still a good article raising an important issue of apps removed from the app store for any number of reasons, but still loaded on users smartphones.  

Personally, I'd like a little more communication from app stores on this. If an app is removed why not uninstall from everyone's device? Or, at least send a notification/display one upon entering the app store to notify the user?

I don't know about you, but I have plenty of apps installed that I don't really use. They just sit there on my device because I either forget they're there, or I tell myself I'll get around to using it eventually. If there is a problem with malware, or something else on any of my apps I'd like to know. What are your thoughts?

How do modern brands grab attention in a world that hates advertising?

This magazine takes an approach that blends the design, not just the copy, into the magazine's overall theme.

"The submerssive approach means having ads follow an overarching vision which, in this case, is the Whalebone masthead. With a unifying theme, readers are saved from ads that can offend the cohesiveness of a publication."

Nike Marketing Strategy - How Nike Does it. A Case Study

This is a great look at how an iconic brand, famous for their huge ad campaigns and memorable taglines, shifts focus from television and billboards to digital technology for a more customer-centric approach that is both personalized and measurable. Check it out!

_"The taglines 'Just Do It' and 'Bo Knows' became synonymous with the Nike brand, instantly recognizable. Now, however, Nike has moved away from these types of advertisments. From 2009 to 2012, Nike’s spending on traditional advertising dropped by 40% and decreased ever since, even as its marketing budget grew to a company record of $2.4 billion.

Solutions must be robust and not coverage dependent. Likewise, integration to systems of record must serve as part of the story, not the dominant theme."
