I wonder about our ability to REALLY THINK about what we’re doing on a day to day basis, and the impact it has.
It’s the shadow part that I feel I’m operating in usually.
Our attention suffers and our deeper thought processes are almost non existent. Eventually, loads of uncertainty about data, actions, experiments, pretty much anything you can think of. Real challenge is to take time inbetween to reflect, that in our frenzied, connected, tweeted, ‘checked in’ lives is very tough. Looks like a historical fiction book I read in the late 80s, between the thought and the action falls the shadow.
, the weird part is….I think we need to feel and get comfortable in the uncomfortable, the shadow zone just so we can change, be nimble and agile in how we approach any project or initiative. Now let me ask you something. What real, positive outcome has that fragmentation brought? It’s almost like a virus that worms it’s way into our life, and we’ve adopted and utilize the practice. Besides, hyperfragmented is your term. Lots of my work is making companies realize the implications of these rules on their company strategy and structures.
You’ve probably seen these rules sneak into my blog posts. I need to share them below as a collection with the hope that it will motivate you to create a veritable primordial ooze from which new ideas will spark for an imaginative digital existence. With any passing day that strategy now ensures we are rejecting ns of revenue and ns of prospective customers. TV. Paid search. YouTube. It’s a. What motivates you to use and buy Gatorade? I see this differently. This 100 might be a good solution. There is more info about this stuff on this website. How good it’s, It’s not about how much attention. So, obviously, it’s not Letterman’s future Stupid Twitter Tricks. Remember, I can get your attention with some stupid viral video but that does not mean 10000000000 views add value to the brand. Normally, these brands are stuck with the old media model of counting quantity instead of striving to curate and measure quality, as it’s.
I think IDEO’s CEO Tim Brown captured the person type digital marketing needs well with his ‘T shaped person’ philosophy. Vertical bar represents the depth in a field and the horizontal bar represents empathy for and the ability to use/apply knowledge from other fields. I sometimes feel that my boss says, In our greatest effort to never failure, we’ve decided to never try. We’ll never put ourselves out there for the world to judge. Certainly, as Avinash points out, the beauty of online is that you will know pretty quick whether Surely it’s working. We’ll never differentiate ourselves from the pack, So in case we never try. That is scary and so many individuals will dislike or hate what you do, it’s the people that love it, who are delighted by it that you are seeking.
I think specializing in one problem is great.
Internet marketing had grown and this one problem turned into loads of things, as time passed.
I would have perished gether with many people during our last recession if I was a One trick pony. I actually ‘was’ really good at this one of the issues, when I started in internet marketing in 2006. Day companies with people who are 70 magnificent at one of the issues and have filled the remaining 30percent with being good at everything in the periphery of their jobs will rule this world. At one time, it was okay to be 100 good at one problem, and only one problem. Anyways, why they should want to do that?
They do not know better.
The company wanted to employ online marketing tactics that were deprecated in the 90s.
I was consulting a sizable company on online marketing recently. I realized that they are not aware of the way digital marketing works these days. Lots of their questions stumped me being that they made no sense. That’s a fact, it’s no longer acceptable to just meet past expectations. Alternatives to you are one click away, one Google search away, one tweeted recommendation away. Aim to meet ‘super insane’ customer expectations and you’ll ‘futureproof’ your business. Needless to say, how do we merge the people side, non tech, everyday point and click people with data analysts and coders? Usually, these two people types think as differently as men and women.
Webmasters, CTOs, etc are from Mars and users are from Venus. What about customer experience? Monetize the opportunity presented, ‘futureproof’ your company. Absorb them. Eight simple rules for digital revolutionaries to follow to unlock the imagination of their companies and be massively successful in the future. Notice that undertake the very hard task of slowly evolving your company to adapt to them. Fact, innovation is hard. Consequently, as a previous manager of mine gave me excellent insight once, in many organizations, management often ain’t receptive to ideas from subordinates as long as they take resources and focus away from ideas that are sacred cows of influential management. I’m sure you heard about this. Having said this, for the most part there’re many organizations that are highly innovative where innovation is part of the DNA.
People in the highest corporate positions are often far removed from the details and are often very rightbrained.
People ‘shoulderdeep’ into the details are the ones that see the possibilities and are often not skilled at socializing new ideas and influencing upper management.
Organizations are largely crafted to prevent it. Risk and innovation are rewarded. Performance is evaluated as part of the employee review process. Whenever evolving beyond current web analytics constructs, love the approach, constant change. Ok, and now one of the most important parts.
Change and evolution is likely to be the theme for 2012! I have a plan of attack this year to go after data mining, predictive modelling, and similar data ninja skill sets. I asked this on Google+ but figured I should post it here. So, now that Analytics has started incorporating such data and Google is moving to tie search and social together, I’m interested to hear what you think. What are your thoughts on how to qualify and measure social engagement. That’s why having multiple trick ponies matters.
That’s why owing your favourite strong digital outpost and being present in a space others owns matters.
They combine to get you really good at the Long Tail execution complexity and massive bottomline benefit.
Oh, and here’s why Multiplicity matters. Not an asset who is really, really, really, really good at writing copy for display campaigns, if your Marketer isn’t savvy in basic finance and analytics and writing some html and creating mobile campaigns and tag clouds thence you have a long period liability on your hands. That’s right! The companies who find out how to truly measure the customer’s experience and design to create the ultimate UX, gonna be the winners. That said, this requires alternative person type than the typical CTOs and CMOs running the show today. There’s some more information about this stuff here. Without the need of a Analyst, we will take the tactical and determine how to automate it.
