Noise, creepiness or value? An overview of 5 mobile channels.

Noise I came across an interesting question in Quora: "Next things in mobile marketing," which warranted my response. I mentioned that the obvious issue with mobile marketing seems to be consumer resistance -- our need to weed out noise and privacy concerns.

As marketers, we have a multitude of available mobile channels to reach out to our current and potential customers: email, social media, ads, SMS, geo-fencing ads, push notifications. Many require opt-in, and thus we are facing a double challenge: how do we get the users to opt-in (considering they might already be turned off by a previous intrusive experience with this channel), and once they've opted in - how can we keep them opted in and engaged.

Work life balance: 12 ways to achieve It

Image credit: When you run your own business, it is go-go-go-go-go, and achieving work life balance might seem as fantastical as a unicorn. If you are constantly answering emails, crunching numbers or finding your mind occupied with work, you are not living, you’re working all the time.

The trouble with a poor balance is that you, your loved ones and even your business suffer on all levels when you do not get time to just “be.” Popular thought leader on leadership and entrepreneurship Dr. Parker J. Palmer often says, “We are human beings, not human doings.”

Platform upgrade, and no more Silverlight

We've finally finished upgrading our platform (control panel and mobile site builder) from Silverlight to HTML5, and the new version of the mobile site editor is live. For the next month or so you'll see a "Back to Silverlight version" button in the top menu (just in case you'd like to use the old version of the page editor).

How to prevent "Faulty Redirects" with piJnz

faulty redirects - GoogleEarlier this summer Google has announced a few changes in ranking of smartphone search results, possibly penalizing sites that are not following the new recommendations. One of the most common ones is "Faulty Redirects". A "faulty redirect" is when a user is redirected to an irrelevant page on the mobile site. For instance, when a smartphone user arrives at a specific secondary desktop page - "about us" page or "products" page - as a result of Google search or direct entry, and is redirected to the home page of the mobile site.

3 Guerrilla Marketing Tactics That Work in 2013

Guerrilla marketing strategies are those that are outside the box, creative, and difficult to define. With this type of marketing, the focus is on creating buzz and visibility. Guerrilla marketing tactics are often funny, sometimes shocking, and attention grabbing. When you look at successful guerrilla marketing examples, you see extensive use of humor, lots of visuals, plays on “humanisms” and pop culture references.

The idea is to play on human responses and emotions rather than present a sale, product release, or pitch. While guerrilla marketing is a little risky, it tends to be less expensive than traditional advertising, and also far more rewarding.
