El problema de la publicidad en redes sociales
La publicidad en las redes sociales no funciona. No funciona para el anunciante, que tiene un promedio de CTR de 0,008% y compra a un cpm algo caro, en ciertos casos. Los usuarios, millones de usuarios no navegan en una red social con intención de comprar o buscando información de compra, navegan con la idea de socializar y eso convierte en irrelevantes los anuncios. Con este panorama y camino de una crisis económica, no es estraño que a mediados de 2008 se revisaran a la baja las previsiones de crecimiento de inversión en redes. Pero esto no es nuevo para los propietarios de red que ya a finales de 2007 buscaban innovación en ... market research, surveys and trends

What I'll miss about Blockbuster
It's too soon to call it an end of an era, but Blockbuster Video's troubles make it tempting. Between the company's presence on a Wall St. 24/7 List of "10 Brands That May Disappear in 2011" and the company's bizarre delisting from the New York Stock Exchange this week (based on internal shenanigans that shareholders are trying to get to the bottom of ), the company has what one might call a Wall Street image problem. And that's on top of the other, more general, more daunting problem it's been coping with for about five years now, which we've written about before and will call, for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Is Social Networking the future of Word-of-Mouth Marketing ...
Never before did we have tools that organically helped spread word-of-mouth as well as social networking sites allow us to do today. There is no more organic way for buzz to spread virally than through a social network. What social networking and professional networking sites do, is replace sales/marketing/advertising with word-of-mouth and replace snake oil salesmen/pyramid scheme peddlers with true customer and product evangelists. Do you agree? Overwhelmed by the great quality of responses. However, let me clarify that my question referred to whether social networking is the future of "Word-of-Mouth Marketing", not marketing ...

A friend and I were having a beer when her phone beeped: it was a direct message she'd received on Twitter. Cool. How did she set that up and how can I do the same on my iPhone? Based on your enthusiasm for Foursquare, I have been getting more into it and am connecting with a variety of different people in my community. Generally it's good fun and since I only check in when I am in a public setting, I have no worries about privacy with people I don't know. Except there's this one guy who uses his checkins to advertise his workshops incessantly and it's annoying to get those alerts. I want to unfriend ...
