Like my previous post about Social Technologies I wanted to put together a better classification model in place for digital marketing. Often it seems terms are thrown around without much standardization.

If you live in Seattle you know this is a car town.  It’s nearly impossible to get to some points without the use of car.  It’s sort of sad really that a young city that appears to be full of environmentally conscious  people haven’t done more to make this city have better mass transit options.

I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and what we really need is a Twitter affiliate ad network like service.  I often post tweets about products I like or things that I find interesting.  In most cases that is valuable to those companies.  I’ve done some small tests with my twitter account @futileboy and found that my click through is very high for each post about 7% of my followers click my links.  Which is a much higher number then online ads get.  Of course that’s because my links are not always trying to sell something.  On twitter if you stop being genuine the people see that and stop following you.

Aside from all that, cheap
it would be great if there was service for users of twitter to make a little money off of their recommendations.  What I would like to see is a service that’s sort of like Google Adsense, remedy but instead of suggested ads, a user would type in the product they are about to promote and then if available receive a URL with their code and the clients in it. along with a short URL version that’s easy to post to Twitter. 

Companies could go one step further with this, on demand adverting, and even offer discounts to top influencer’s followers.  Which in turn would give the tweeter more street cred.  Just imagine a tweet from someone you follow pointing out a product you’re interested in and a discount if you click the link now.  This may be just enough to push someone in to purchasing.

Would this service get abused? OF course it will.  However the natural filtering process of over advertising will ultimately make authentic influencers stand out.

Sure it’s a little evil, but if someone is willing to pay for it and someone is willing to take that money in the offer then the service should exist.

What Is Your Web Site’s Purpose?

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Every Web site has a purpose. Yours may have more than one.

Your Web site is a collection of possible types of content and applications. The purpose of your site can be identified by thinking about your main business objectives and answering a couple of key questions:

  • What are you trying to accomplish on the site?
  • Why are customers coming to your website?

Let’s walk through a couple of examples. If your main goal is to achieve and maintain customer satisfaction, diet
your site is likely a Support site. If however, your main objective is to enable the direct sale of products and services, then your site is likely a Commerce site.

Web Purposes will help those of you in the web space measure the business value of your activities vis-à-vis your business objectives and facilitate tracking of your site’s success metrics.

Review the following Web Purposes to see which apply to your Web site.

  • Ad Revenue
  • Commerce
  • Community
  • Extension of Product
  • Marketing Communications

Enter the Matrix Code

Friday, August 8th, 2008

047267E4-437F-4E31-8A93-EB22454AEE33.jpg You’ve all seen them before on your mail and packages. They are starting to turn up all over the place. It’s also becoming a much more complicated landscape. There are more and more types of two-dimensional matrix barcode appearing all the time. The majority of them are consisting of black and white square modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern, price which gives them that television static look. They are however no longer limited to just black & white or square in shape. There are others that look more like crop circles, therapist some that actually have pictures in them and some based on color triangles.

Microsoft has introduced their own version that they call the High Capacity Color Barcode. This version has both a 4 color and 8 color version that offer a much more data storage.
F184F3C6-1C05-42B9-908D-1C2F8D86F5E5.jpg

An interesting aspect to the High Capacity Color Barcode is that is supports RSA signatures. With it’s long list of features and data density it’s your best option for actually storing information that needs to be physically printed on a surface. The only challenge with Microsoft’s solution is that there isn’t any easy way to use them yet. As of this time there are no public readers available for cell phones or online.

7F9988A1-FE11-4C70-8978-51B4EC3653C2.jpgHowever with today’s always online technology and readers based in cellphone, I’m personally interested in ShotCode’s solution. They are focusing on mobile tagging that work sort of like a TinyURL in that they only contain a link to a URL. To use a ShotCode you can use generate one for free on their site. To decode you can Download a ShotCode mobile barcode reader from their site or choose from a few option for the iPhone from the App store.

It’s interesting to see how these codes are starting to take off in general use. The site Semapedia is all about creating links between real world objects and Wikipedia. On their site you can enter in the Wikipedia URLs and create a DIY printable sticker sheet, that you can then go and tag objects with. Everyone should go and create some and stick them on stuff.

The QR Codes seem to have become the most used in advertising right now thanks to their success in Japan. It’s the code that I myself have noticed more and more in public spaces and adds.

So which one is the best? For me it’s the one that is easiest and cheapest to create and scan back in. For that I’m leaning on the QR Code at the top of the list followed by DataMatrix and the ShotCode. I’m interested in using the HCCB, but will have to wait.

Here’s a little sample of some of the matrix codes I could find:

Why Targeted Advertising is Important

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

I found this ad today while doing a little research about Microsoft’s SharePoint Server

image

I very much like the juxtaposition of Mary Kay “Enriching Women’s Lives” and Grand Theft Auto

It’s pure magic.

I wouldn’t have guessed that this ad was a good idea on this page as it is.  Let alone the conflict that occurs with the featured quote author.

I’m just saying.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Silverlight Valentine

I worked on a little Silverlight Valentine’s day e-card for Microsoft. The original card design was going to be a bit more, pills but we had some time constraints to deal with. Overall, tadalafil it’s a simple application. The meat of the developement work was done by the talented folks at Aeshen.

I would like to go back and really rework the concept more, but you know, I like to make code and design perfect and the real world demands that stuff ships on time. Enjoy. I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s day.

Spending on Customer Experience vs. Advertising

Gap.com is temporarily closed

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

Gap.com is temporarily closed. I find this interesting that a major online retailer would choose to go offline instead of some sort of better organized roll out of new services. They must be losing money like crazy. If I had suggested that this was an expectable solution on any of my e-commerce site I’ve managed I think I would have been fired.

TiVo to Transfer Shows to iPods, viagra 60mg Sony PSP – New York Times. This is exciting news for me. I already go to the trouble of converting files over to my PSP. I’d like to get a video iPod someday too. I think transferability is the killer app for any DVR. I’m not sure why it took Tivo so long to do it when all the others had been for a while. Maybe I’m just one of those weird people that don’t have time to watch TV in front of my TV. I like my media to be mobile. Since they still don’t have “Tivo To Go” software available for the Mac, website like this I’ll continue to use my very faithful eyetv instead. It’s a great product for getting the TV and video on to my machine and other devices. I just wish it had a good 10 foot UI and a better remote. Because it doesn’t I still love my Tivo.

VirtuSphere is a fully immersive virtual reality environment. The company is located in Redmond and works with the University of Washington’s Human Interface Technology (HIT) Lab. I’ve also had a special place in my heart for VR. This seems like a pretty exciting product with lots of potential, sovaldi sale although I bet it will be a long time before I can have one in my home.

digital paper and the IliadI don’t like posting something that I found on Gizmodo, melanoma I try to avoid that sort of thing. There always seems to be overlap though. In this case though I saw it there first and I must say that I’m very excited. iRex Technologies is showing off the prototype for the Iliad. This is one of the first commercial devices designed around digital paper with reading in mind. Combined with the fact that it’s fairly open and standards based too. Support for PDF, hospital XHTML, plain text, MP3, and the like.

If they stick to their product description I will be the first person in line to buy one.

This article in the New York Times talks about how Wal-Mart is testing out selling high end products and testing electronics on their e-comm site. As much as I dislike Wal-Marts overall business stragegy, dosage I think they are pretty smart here. Testing products online first and limiting their speciality products online only makes their e-commerce site an entirely new element. Since Wal-Mart is everywhere it doesn’t make sense to just sell the same stuff.

Well, malady everybody is talking about it. MIT Media Lab’s $100 Laptop. I’m a big fan of Nicholas Negroponte‘s work. I do feel like there are lots of other things the economically challenged children of the world need first before a laptop. At least this gives them a chance to learn something that will give them other options in life.

I usually like to watch the latest movie trailer once it’s online. I have noticed though that over time they’ve become more and more annoying. They don’t design the downloadable video to be, medicine well, health download friendly. The file sizes tend to be much bigger then they need to be and they often have a lot of wasted information in them. Take this Superman Returns trailer for example. There is a rating message, order and three logo splashes along with music and audio before I get to any of the visual I want to see. In fact these take up almost half of the download.

What I’d like to see is a video that cuts to the chase. My bandwidth and time are worth something to me. I don’t like waiting for a video and it’s even less fun if it starts playing only to show logos and then stop and wait again. I’m not sure what happened to video streaming. It really seems to be something that’s just not done anymore. Now it’s all downloads instead.
