A Beginner's Guide to Google Analytics Remarketing
#analytics   #remarketing  

"In the context of Paid Acquisition, the power of Remarketing is undeniable. Being able to interact with those who have already experienced your site is a huge advantage to accelerate the growth of your product. However, there is a more powerful method to maximize the potential value of Remarketing.

It is 'Google Analytics (GA) Remarketing'."

The tl;dr version is pretty much this:

If we posit that there are multiple universes in which various probable situations play themselves out, a quantum computer would be able to run calculations within all these different universes at once. Greene, who is chairman of the World Science Festival, explains that the implications of such a machine would be tremendous.

Today I Learned

"CoolSculpting peddles a dream of painlessly getting a better body, of literally zapping problems away with medical technology. It’s easy to be cynical about Zeltiq, and the entire cosmetic weight loss industry, and we should be. But in this case, the bizarre science works. You can freeze your fat and poop it out."

A little morning music...

Really digging this track from Doe Paoro. Beautiful vocals, light synth, drum machine... perfect for waking up. You know, uh, if waking up at 10:30am is a thing you do. And if it IS a thing you do, I'm super jealous. What are other good songs for the morning?

Have you seen Kung Fury yet?!

If you have 30 minutes, and love ridiculousness, you've got to do yourself a favor and watch this amazing indie film. Tell me how much you love Triceracop in the comments. There have been some pretty amazing fan films on YouTube. What do you think everyone is missing?

Just the Facts: Ant-Man

In case you aren't a comic book reader, or if you just haven't read Ant-Man. I like to compile these posts so people can learn a little bit more about a hero before or after they see a movie. Ant-Man comes out next month, a little less than a month actually, July 17th.

What does everyone think about Paul Rudd in this role? I think he's funny, and certainly matches the comedic styling of Scott Lang (Ant-Man!) in the comics. I must say, I never expected him to be a superhero. 

Oh yeah, guess I'm back on G+ again. Good to see everyone!

Suicide Squad Character Guide - For Non-Geeks

Alright, big news this week as the Suicide Squad cast was made official. Instead of giving you analysis or opinions on what each actor is going to bring to the role, or how CrAzY the producers must be for X decision. We’re here to give you a multimedia study guide for the Suicide Squad giving you, you guessed it, just the facts. Hopefully this will allow you to form your own opinions on whether or not Hancock will make the best Deadshot.

We're experiencing a Nerdaissance

Man, it's a great time to be a nerd. Has anyone else been watching The Flash? I think that it would have been really easy to slip into a "get real gritty and dark" show... because, you know, it works for Arrow - and Nolan's Batmans have been banking on that for a decade. But The Flash gives you the lighthearted side of comics from the Scarlet Speedster

Imagine Hogwarts, Except the Students Are Assassins instead of Witches and Wizards
review of Deadly Class

For all of my fellow comic book nerds. The other tagline we use is Kill Bill meets Saved by the Bell. How can you not want to read that? I've also been lucky enough to snag a review from the artist of Deadly Class, Wes Craig. Being able to write about what I love and have the time for a passion project has been a blessing of sorts, so I hope you enjoy reading!

Why Doesn't Your Company Have a #SocialMedia  Voice Document?

People in your organization are going to be connected to social media somehow. It’s inevitable. You can either ban them from speaking on behalf of the company, or teach them that should they be in that position – that there is a right way.

I wrote this bad boy up after creating my magnum voice opus for my current company, there are a ton of resources out there - some I link to in the article. I wish more people would blog about their actual activities at their jobs more often. Hypothetical stuff just isn't interesting when you're looking for practical advice.

Another interview I did with +Shing Yin Khor for Shortboxed. She discusses her journey into reading and creating comics, overcoming industry barriers, and finding a community in which she and others could support each others' efforts.

I love her fantastical creatures (specifically the Larm, and the Space Worm), which are done in a colorful, watercolor.

My favorite quote:
Shortboxed: Do you have any advice to minorities that are trying to get into comics, or are trying to get their children into comics?

SYK: Find what you love, because I promise you it is there. It might not be in a comic shop, but it’s there, and it is absolutely worth looking for.

Oy, been away for quite some time trying to get used to new job (now, no longer new at +twilio ) and start up some passion projects of mine. Started a new comic book blog aimed at helping people who are trying to get into comics, but are overwhelmed by the massive amount of info on the average comic book website.

What has everyone else been up to? I see that, despite several media stories' naysaying, that the community is still alive and well around these parts. 

Have any passion projects you'd like to share?

The Biggest Compilation [640] Of Google Plus Tips Ever Shared Publicly!
This has been a really time consuming (curated) blog post, but at the end of the day -- it was worth it to create such a piece.

Each one of you whom I've mentioned below has made this massive list of Google Plus Tips possible. Without you -- this list would have never been created.

Sharing is caring!

After viewing the list of Google+ Tips -- Please help me to spread the word about this awesome (HUGE) list of Google+ Tips, by sharing it with your friends here on Google+!.

Some of you, well.. a lot of you will find your name as an author, of a shared post, within this share.

These Google Plus Tips met the requirements and quality standards of making this list. This list contains only the best Google+ Tips (shares) ever made publicly.

With the list being the size it is and the time I already have involved in it -- I couldn't justify pinging everyone. I hope that there will be some of you out there, who may help pinging others, whom I left out.

Note:  If some of the "short (pretty) links" aren't "linked" please use copy and paste for the time being. I'm manually linking them right now. I had assumed that they would automatically be linked up, but. Not sure wordpress does this though. :(

Are You Really Building Trust with Social Media?
"You probably don't know how trust works."

Thanks to my wonderful +Social Media Hangout amigos, I was able to put into words what I haven't been able to put into words. My issue with the word 'trust' as it relates to building it via social media channels has been a long-standing thorn in my paw. Then, +David Amerland , was able to highlight that the issue isn't the concept of trust, it's the process that leads to attaining trust. Check out the post to see what I was able to learn.

Written by +Kristoffer Howes - this post provides an outline of the book's contents - might be useful for some of you thinking about bringing your brand or company to G+. 

Get an A+ on G+: Helping You Make the Grade on G+
Too many businesses feel like they are failing on Google+. My hope is that this G+ guide will help them earn an A+ for their Google+ marketing efforts.

Preface:

Here's How to Focus on Social Networks That Matter
These 3 steps will help business owners determine which social networks their competitors are using and which resources to focus on, when communicating their own branded message.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/QLJ5AiLgygz

Avoid Being Discouraged By Failed Attempts at Social Media
To avoid the discouragement of repeated social media marketing failures, it is recommended that businesses focus their brand building and search engine marketing efforts, on satisfying these three principles of social media success.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/8SCLTuA9mWs

Chapter 1: Google+ Basics

Explaining Google+ Circles to Square People
In the parlance of Jazz, a square was a person who failed to appreciate the medium. In more broad terms, it meant someone who was out of date, out of touch, or who clung to repressive, traditional ways of thinking. This reminds me of so many people who are apprehensive about Google+ and cling to Facebook.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/bdcsc6RkcE7

Easy Strategies to Help Your Business Get the Most Out of G+
Businesses today need to think more like their consumers, instead of launching massive (intrusive) marketing campaigns to entrap a very small number of people.

4 Methods of Building a Meaningful Foundation For a G+ Strategy
Utilize the Google +1 button, Google Hangouts, cross-product integration and ( #myfavorite ) hash tags, to help others communicate your branded content.

Chapter 2: Hidden Advantages of Google+

Using a Google+ Brand Page as Your Website
There are a few methods of using a Google+ business or brand page, to act as a simple but very effective website for a small to medium-size business.

Let Google and Google+ Greet Consumers For You
When a Google+ profile is displayed in Google search results, it provides businesses/brands an opportunity to communicate a carefully sculpted message, to Google's search audience.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/RdnQpdxSYzQ

Optimizing Your Google+ Profile For Search Results
When it comes to optimizing your Google+ profile, the name you select, the description you provide and the content you post, all have an undeniable effect on how your G+ content is indexed by Google; and other search engines.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/7q9Pc9DRccv


Chapter 3: Engaging The Google+ Community

A Good Time to Formally Introduce Yourself and Your Brand
When someone adds you on Google+, you have been given a valuable brand building opportunity. Take a moment to respond with a branded message that is both informative and inviting.

A Google+ Linkbuilding Strategy
Many of the the fundamental linkbuilding strategies can be applied to Google+ posts, to increase their visibility in Google search results.

Chapter 5: Get Extra Value From Google+

Google+ Feed Snippet: A 200 Character Sales Pitch
The first 200 characters of a G+ post are the most important, because they offer a chance to effectively communicate a branded message in a busy feed.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/9j6n25E2Xe7

The 1st 100 Characters of a Google+ Post are Vital
Although the 200 character cap is good to be mindful of, the 50 character title and the following 50 characters are super-important when you consider what the post will look like when it is shared by others.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/C1phdzk872r

+1s Can Indirectly Cause Search Results to Improve
With all things considered, did the correlating number of +1s on a post cause the webpages to appear more favorably in search results? Yes, IMO I believe they did ... indirectly.

After Thoughts:

Dream it + Believe it + Plan it = Achieve it
I believe that this is a great Formula For Success. I recommend using this approach to address challenges you face or to achieve goals you have set.

===================================================

I have come up with somewhat of a “novel” idea. [pun intended]

I have decided to write my Google+ marketing book on G+ and make it available only on Google+. So, not only is the book ON Google+ (topic), it is written ON Google+ (medium) and seen only ON Google+ (availability).

So now when anyone asks about my Internet marketing [using fingers to make quotation marks] book, I can respond by saying: “its on Google+.”

As well, I choose this approach because I wanted the book to be a constant work in progress that could be updated and revised to reflect the changes in Google+, and marketing on Google+. Too many books that are published become outdated and less useful as time progresses. My hope is that this body of work will be an ongoing project that will evolve with the industry and remain as relevant in 5 or 10 years, as it is today.

I would also like to take a moment to thank some of the people who have in some way made a meaningful contribution to the writing of this book and/or my journey on Google+. In no particular order:

+Andrij Harasewych, +Mark Traphagen, +Dustin W. Stout, +Kim Beasley, +Eric Enge, +Marilyn Moore, +Kay Kulkarni, +Ryan Crowe, +Andy Beal, +David Kutcher +Chef Dennis Littley, +Bill Gassett and the entire Social Media Strategy Community.___Written by +Kristoffer Howes - this post provides an outline of the book's contents - might be useful for some of you thinking about bringing your brand or company to G+.

I, for one, am amazed that the Minecraft world is so big that it can fit a few Earths. Also... have fun Wikipedia'ing "Quantum Foam".

More on Minecraft's size:

" In practice, technical reasons (the limits of 32-bit math) force the maximum map size, including the Far Lands, to be around 9.3 million times the surface area of Earth, which comes out to about 4.7 quadrillion km2 (The hard limit where chunks are overwritten is at X/Z of ±34,359,738,368, making the world at most 68,719,476,736 meters wide and long, which is about 4,722,366,482,869,645 km2. When compared to Earth's total surface area, 510,072,000 km2, this works out to be about 9,258,235 times that). Whilst the horizontal planes of the maps are vast in size, the vertical plane remains at a fixed (soft limit) 256-block height" via +Wikipedia

I think it's important to support gender equality and, at some point, we'll have an equal enough distribution that we won't have to separate this into Gentlemen and Ladies (and we're missing people who identify as something else!) - but for the time being, let's interact with this question. I'm excited to see the results.

Who Are The Most Interesting Ladies on Google+?

Continuing with my #circlesplosion  series, I need your help in putting together a list of the most interesting ladies on Google+. 

If you're not familiar with #circlesplosion  you can read up here - http://dustn.tv/circlesplosion/ - and catch up on the four other circles that have been curated and shared thus far. 

In the comments below, please nominate your favorite g+gals (please +mention them so I can easily add them to a new circle) and tell us why you think they should be added to the circle. Some reasons would include:

- She is helpful
- She is witty
- She is insightful
- She is informative
- She is always on the cutting edge
- She produces beautiful work
- She is inspiring
- She is funny

We're looking for the best of the best for these curated circles so that when they are shared they are of the greatest value to those who would like to add them. Please note that they must be active Google+ users to be included.

If I visit a profile that hasn't been updated regularly or is just posting random gifs with no attribution or intrinsic value, they will not be added to the circle. Quality over quantity is what we're shooting for. 

I'll start off with my top 5 g+gals:

+Peg Fitzpatrick - she's inspiring, helpful, insightful, and fun!

+Kimberly Reynolds - also very helpful, insightful, fun and incredibly considerate and caring!

+Rebekah Radice - a great source for #socialmedia  related content - one of the best curators I know!

+Daria Musk - the original g+ rockstar - an inspiring story that continues to unfold. She's both inspirational and entertaining.

+Catarina Stout - the most beautiful woman in the world, a.k.a. my wife. :D

So lets get this rolling! I'll give this a day to let nominations roll in and tomorrow night will cap off the new circle and share it here on Google+. I'll also add it to the #circlesplosion  anchor blog post.

Happy Birthday, Mizzou!
My alma mater turns 175, and some thoughts on fellow Tiger, Michael Sam

What a time it is for Mizzou to turn 175. We recently had a fairly ugly look at the failure of our school to appropriately react to an alleged rape scenario, and it wasn't the best feeling in the world. From my experience in college, you are taught to be proud of your alma mater. You celebrate the sporting endeavors, great academic achievements, research advancements, remarkable alumni, cultural progress and the renown of your institution's prestige in areas of excellence.

They don't really prepare you to face moments of abject disappointment. And so you give feedback, if you choose to do so. "We aren't proud of how you handled that," or "Someone should have known better!" and you hope that instead of stagnantly accepting their error, that they move to make sure things like that don't happen again.

I also wasn't prepared to feel as proud as I did when one of our star defensemen came out the other day with these words, "I came to tell the world I'm an openly proud gay man," and "I just want to make sure I could tell my story the way I want to tell it. I just want to own my truth." I'm also proud of the team for letting Michael Sam tell his story, there are so many people on that team - but we haven't heard about it until now? A pretty amazing accomplishment. Movie studios can't even keep their scripts and movies unleaked for very long! 

The support Michael Sam has received has been overwhelmingly positive. And I'm sure he's gotten way more eloquent shows of support from other  journalists, political figures, cultural icons, news bastions etc - but good luck in the draft, big guy - and thanks for being who you are.

M-I-Z!

Thanks for all of your help everyone!

The LittleBigFund continues being awesome....thanks to you!

It is a distinct honor to congratulate Global Youth United as the recipient of January's LittleBigFund. You all raised over $730 together to give this fantastic nonprofit and I'm sure they look forward to using it. When talking to their director, GYU had this to say about why they need the fund:

"GYU aims to increase its student participation rate, refine curriculum development, hire a full-time Executive Director and staff, and plan for program enhancement and expansion. The program that we provide is vital in filling the gaps in youth learning and development and we want to continue providing positive alternatives to high school youth, engaging them with role models, and empowering them to become leaders in their communities, that is why we need LittleBigFund’s help!!!”

The LittleBigFund is all about empowering you, a totally normal person, to work with others and turn lots of little actions into one big one. Small actions matter so much when they're combined and I'm thrilled every month we do that through The LittleBigFund. GYU is such a fantastic organization that truly engaged their community to win the fund this month. I dream of a day where we can raise enough to split the fund between all three featured nonprofits, but, until then, I'm so happy to help out at least one.

Next month's theme starts tomorrow! Is February the month you start giving back?

You can read their story on our website here: https://littlebigfund.org/np/global-youth-united/___Thanks for all of your help everyone!

Hilarious Devil Baby Prank

via +Laughing Squid 

"An animatronic “Devil Baby” in a remote-controlled stroller surprises unsuspecting pedestrians in New York City in this elaborate staged prank. The stunt was created as a promotion for the upcoming found-footage horror movie Devil’s Due by Thinkmodo, the same viral marketing company behind the promotional stunt for Carrie that featured a woman wrecking a cafe with her telekinetic powers.

In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Thinkmodo founder Michael Krivicka said “People were totally cool with being in the video after getting the living hell scared out of them. Each reaction ended with a laugh, and everyone loved the look of the baby.”
