Jesse Wojdylo790,887Over 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.

Another thing that's really interesting about this new offering from +Starbucks Coffee is that they plan to use a Hollywood movie to help launch it. 

So, instead of the regular paid product placement of a movie character holding a branded cup, or walking into the business, this placement will seemingly have a character using a brand new feature that will be available to the audience after they leave the theater (or somewhere in that time frame).

How to Create a Twitter List Out of Everyone Who Mentions You

I came across this post by +Aaron Lee today and thought it was a pretty good idea to add a layer of engagement on Twitter...assuming you actually use the list. 

Personally, I really don't like it when following someone, or retweeting/favoriting their tweet triggers a Direct Message from them to download their eBook, connect with them on LinkedIn, or whatever else. It honestly makes me want to cease engaging with them going forward.

But, this IFTTT recipe allows for something that, to me, means a little bit more - because it's public, it can connect me with other users, and it implies that the person I mentioned appreciates the mention, and wants to continue interacting in some way going forward. 

Check out this Twitter hack and let me know what you think.

The Super Bowl Marketing Guide

"During playoff games and the Super Bowl itself, think about how your brand can connect with people in the moment, not take them out of it."

Marketing now goes well beyond multi-million dollar ads during the football game itself. Finding your audience through digital channels leveraging programmatic buying, useful content, and unique experiences can bring returns for smaller budgets as well.

This article looks at the Google Search data to reveal opportunities for brands to reach their customers.

Can you capture the football fan's attention during these playoff weeks and make a lasting impression?

This year's "big game" will be one of the biggest yet, and much of the audience is online. Marketers can reach millions of fans through search, mobile, and video. Here's how: http://goo.gl/7KfVYj via +Think with Google ___The Super Bowl Marketing Guide

Wearables Set to Expand Influence of Push Notifications

"According to Mr. Malmad and Mindshare, connecting on wearables is not about deploying a banner, running a pre roll or intrusion but instead should aim to achieve creating an additive experience, insight that can be beneficial and utility. Reports support the rise of wearables and 2015 will show more consumers purchasing these devices."

Anyone here attend CES and see what's available with wearables? This article runs down a bunch of practical use cases for push notifications that are useful to the user, from finding and starting your car to monitoring your baby's temperature.

CES 2015: The Big Trends That Should Matter To Marketers

I agree with this post by +Gideon Rosenblatt​.

I have joined many Google+ Communities which I just do have the time to engage in fully.

A better way to view this content like Gideon suggests could make a huge difference for me as a user, and really boost engagement in a lot of Communities. What do you think?

Wanted: A Consolidated Communities Feed
We need a better way to browse through community posts. It would be nice to have a consolidated stream for all community posts. 

When you're done reading this post, try a quick experiment. If you're at your desktop, bring up the left-hand navigation, and click on "Communities". You'll see something like the attached image. (If you're on the mobile app, click on the drop-down menu at the top - it might say "Everything", then click "Communities".) If you're like me, what you'll see is a bunch of communities with a bunch of little red squares showing how many new posts have been posted in that community since your last visit. Many, for me, are pegged at the maximum, "99+". This screen does absolutely nothing for me, other than make me a bit frustrated at all the good stuff I'm missing. 

To remedy the situation, I have to drop down into each of these communities, communities on topics that I've explicitly told Google I'm interested in. I want to see this stuff, but it's unnecessarily fragmented into a hole bunch of content cul-de-sacs. 

What if, instead of seeing all these little red flags, telling us how much we're missing out, what we saw was a consolidated stream of all the content from all of the communities that I've joined? Each one is still prominently labeled and linked with the community it belongs to so I can quickly jump in for a community deep dive when I want it (just like I can link from the main stream feed to a person's or page's profile for a deep dive on their content). 

Right now, community posts do show up in the main feed, but it still feels very haphazard to me. It's almost like figuring out which of the many, many potential community posts to include is just making the relevance algorithms work too hard. And remember, these are all communities that I've freely chosen to follow - I'm interested in them. I just miss that vast majority of what shows up in these communities because they're buried, really buried in the UI. 

A while ago, I suggested another approach to better surfacing these posts by creating a dedicated feed for them where you select different circle feeds today:  
https://plus.google.com/105103058358743760661/posts/VGvbQtcyDvK

This could still be another way to get to this same consolidated communities stream. But for heaven's sake, what we see today when we click on "Communities" is a waste for such prime real estate. To be frank, that UI is just plain dumb. It adds very little value. In fact, for me, it's negative: a constant reminder of the failure to surface interesting content to me. 

OK. That's the idea. I really, really wish something like this could happen. Signs are that Google is now more enthusiastically wrapping itself around the notion of being a shared-interest network - and these are the kinds of tweaks that could really help make that even more true:

#sharedinterestgraph  ___I agree with this post by +Gideon Rosenblatt​.

I have joined many Google+ Communities which I just do have the time to engage in fully.

A better way to view this content like Gideon suggests could make a huge difference for me as a user, and really boost engagement in a lot of Communities. What do you think?

Is Location-Based Marketing As Beneficial As It Seems?

The interest for mobile marketing techniques seems to be going more and more towards the so-called "last mile" of advertising - hitting shoppers with an ad or some type of special offer while that customer is in-store.

This article questions that approach through several examples of good and bad campaigns aimed at shoppers in a given proximity.

For me, a few things need to be considered by mobile marketers leveraging location-based data:

1. Do you have enough mobile touch points with your customers already for this outreach to be seen as genuine and helpful rather than opportunistic and spammy?
2. Does being in the vicinity of a store or product represent enough of a purchase intent to be worth marketing to this user?

2. Does being in the vicinity of a store or product represent enough of a purchase intent to be worth marketing to this user?
3. Are you prepared to match location data with other personal data such as shopping history to deliver the most useful message?
4. Are you approaching location-based tactics with a long-term focus? Many mobile users do not meet all of the requirements to receive this marketing (e.g. app downloaded, bluetooth on, GPS on, opt-in for push notifications, etc.). Are you guiding them towards this with specific instructions as well as early adoption incentives? Are you experimenting with these among willing customers to find the right mix as more people come on board?

What else comes to mind as a concern for location-based mobile marketing? Who's employing this technology well?___

A Bluetooth beacon in your fridge could help you eat less

I like that the beacon activity isn't the product here. It's really just an added feature whose buzz is being leveraged to market a mobile app in a highly competitive sub-category of Health & Fitness on the iOS and Google Play app stores - calorie counting.

Carrot Hunger is a Calorie Counter that allows a beacon to send a reminder to users to count the calories they're about to consume. And by reminding you, the app is challenging you in a way to eat less.

 The app is the fourth in a series of lifestyle apps marketed under the "Carrot" name, which feature a character who can make you feel bad for missing your goals.

McDonald’s revamps marketing recipe to reignite brand ‘lovin’

Answering a question doesn't equal listening. People are concerned with their health and the quality of their food, and McDonald's has answered by paying a celebrity "myth buster" to convince people that what they're already eating is okay while introducing an unusually large chicken wing to their menu. Their new spots meant to be "playful" tell customers that soy and quinoa aren't "juicy" like a hamburger.

It seems to me that McDonald's is distancing themselves more and more from potential customers by only adapting their language and not their behavior. And, it's furthering the restaurant's trust problem with the public.

Very good points made here on taking a long-term approach with marketing and selling to customers. Patience patience patience.

I liken the multiple touch points and offering of additional content in marketing as "buy vs. buy-in".

Even if the person isn't ready to buy whatever you're selling right then, an action like subscribing to the channel, or signing up for the email newsletter is an action that signals a buy-in - an interest in what you do, permission given to continue marketing to them.

Be consistently good, and that person will become a customer when they're ready. In the meantime, they just might spread the word about you.

Happy New Year!

Fantastic commentary on the importance of user experience, and when it pays to be "open".

Internet of (Kitchen) Things "Drops" the Ball

Yesterday, a few days ahead of schedule, I gave my wife one of her Christmas presents, a new kitchen scale that connects wirelessly with an iPad, supposedly allowing you to do all kinds of cool stuff with your ingredients while cooking. It's a cool idea to be sure, but within minutes of opening it,  the Drop scale quickly revealed its serious shortcomings; most, the result of failing to understand an important point about recipes, and data more broadly. 

The Drop scale comes with an iPad app which includes a number of "bespoke" cooking recipes, structured to work well with the scale. This gets us to the product's most serious failing , which is that it is optimized to work pretty much exclusively with this limited number of proprietary recipes.

This lack of usefulness in working with other recipes severely limits the Drop's usefulness as an all-around kitchen scale, the kind of general utility we expect if we're to make room for something like this on an already crowded kitchen counter. For my wife and me, the decision was simple: within an hour of opening her Drop scale, we'd decided to return it to the Apple Store where I'd purchased it. 

My reason for sharing this experience here isn't simply to recommend against your buying it. The Drop scale got me thinking about good product design and good service design in the Internet of Things.

Drop made the decision to ship its "connected scale" with a limited number of connections to the total world of potential recipes that could have made use of scale like this. It made the decision to create a tailored experience with a limited set of recipes that they knew they could get to work reasonably well, rather than to try to design a user experience that would work with the messier experience of working with third-party recipes. In short, they decided to ignore the more unruly reality of most people's lives, where cooking is unruly, and people like to work with recipes from more than just one source. 

As companies roll out smart, connected, Internet-of-Things devices like the Drop kitchen scale, they will will be forced to make decisions about the openness of the data that pulses through these devices, the data that gives these machines meaning, that enables them to do their work for us. In some cases, it will make sense to tightly control, constrain and contain that data because having a smooth, error-free experience will trump openness and connectivity of data. We will be willing to put up with limitations on our freedom in these cases in order to ensure reliability and ease-of-use. 

I predict that these walled garden cases will actually be the minority of cases, however, and that, in most situations, openness of data will be the winning play. Drop is a perfect example. Why in the world would we ever want a connected scale that only works with a handful of recipes chosen by the maker of that scale? I can see someone thinking something like this might sound good in a business plan or funding prospectus, but am really surprised that investors actually went forward with a product based on this strategy. Maybe they thought they could just call it "beta" and hope to improve it over time. Nope. Not with devices like this that take up physical space in our house. They just get returned, usually never to be tried again.  

A few more examples might help illustrate the point. Let's say that your wearable heart monitors reaches a point where it's capable of making smart connections with workout equipment at the gym. What would work better for you, an open data standard that allows your wearable device to connect with all of the machines at your gym and those of the various hotels you stay at, or a Precor device that only works with Precor machines?

Just as I only have room for one "connected scale" on my kitchen counter and don't want to buy separate scales for each of my cookbooks, I don't want to have to have separate wearable devices for each of the machines I want to connect with at the gym. 

Ah, but there is so much money to be made through lock-in, through tying services to devices and preventing customers from taking the data they generate through these connected devices elsewhere. Right? 

Wrong. In the end, with some exceptions as I noted above, we will opt for devices that interoperate. The Drop scale is just silly example of how companies can talk themselves into making stupid decisions, decisions that may sound good in the business plan, but become quite painful once the returns start rolling back in January.

Digital allows for a whole range of marketing opportunities and increased fan engagement that wasn't possible before. What are your thoughts?___
