Twitter's plan to rule both first and second screens

Twitter's purchase of social television analytics firm Bluefin Labs, its largest purchase to date, reveals both its interest in connecting the viewers of media, and in gaining some of the revenue currently headed to television advertising.

Though its business model may have seemed quixotic in its early days, Twitter is building a potential case as the network able to reach people based on their most immediate interests.


Is Twitter transforming the way we watch TV?

Social media monitoring company Brandwatch has recently undertaken a study to unveil how Twitter is transforming the way we watch TV.  

The study, which analysed Twitter conversation during 50 of the top UK and US TV shows has highlighted a number of key TV ‘dual screen’ behaviours.

It has outlined the TV shows are taking full advantage of their Twitter presence in order to grow and retain a loyal customer following.


The Littles vs. The Bigs: the “more level” playing field of mobile apps

“The field isn’t level, but it’s more level than other playing fields,” said Erin Rackelman, CMO and cofounder of Portland-based Night & Day Studios, last week.

She was talking about the app marketplace, which offers more than 700,000 products in the Apple store alone and where previously unheard-of companies like Zynga and PopCap have bested more established brands with their sales volume.

Part of their success can be attributed to the newness of the mobile market, less than a decade old and forced to address constant technological change in that time. 


Stats: Twitter's relationship with TV revealed

There was a huge amount of buzz last year around the inevitable rise of connected TV, which sounded great but rather ignored the fact that viewers were already using their smartphones to interact with what they were watching.

New apps like Zeebox have achieved huge success by allowing people to share their TV viewing experience with others, but Twitter and Facebook remain as two of the main ways of talking about TV.

To highlight the depth of this link, Twitter has published a new report revealing some of the ways in which consumers use the social network to engage with TV shows.

Here are some of the most interesting stats and cases studies, but for more information on this topic checkout our Twitter for Business Best Practice Guide and this blog post on what can we learn from the top five retail brands on Twitter.


Five trends from CES that marketers need to know

The electronics industry just wrapped another CES, where the latest innovations in televisions, wearable tech, and mobile computing were out in full force.

What can digital marketers infer about the future media landscape from the hardware giants and new startup entrants in consumer hardware manufacturing?

Here are five trends and thoughts on why they are worth following.


17 digital marketing and ecommerce trends for 2013 by Econsultancy CEO Ashley Friedlein

Following are my personal thoughts on what will be interesting and important in the world of digital marketing and ecommerce for 2013. As is traditional for my trends, there are around seventeen of them.

I haven’t spent too much time on giving extensive justification for any of these; they are based largely on the many conversations I have with industry influencers and practitioners.

Many are really just notes, or bullet points, but I’ve tried to give links to further information if you want to delve deeper. They are in no particular order though I’ve started with the more ‘strategic’ stuff.

As ever, I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts, or feel free to post a link to your own trends or predictions. 


Will social TV and the second screen move beyond advertising in 2013?

Though the definition of social TV does expand beyond second screening to the advancement of technology in our TVs themselves and the interaction with programming, it still often relates to how consumers use their tablets and mobiles while watching traditional TV programming.

With the rise of video in 2013, it is only natural that we will continue to look at our relationship and interaction with all of our devices. As the use of mobile while watching TV is steadily increasing, 2013 may bring more overlapping content that moves beyond advertising.


The rise of video in 2013

As companies further embrace the need for content, video is becoming a bigger part of editorial calendars and content teams.

Gone are the days of shooting a 10 minute interview and slapping it up on YouTube. Consumers' tastes have become more sophisticated and short form video content has become our brain candy.

But what will 2013 bring the industry in terms of video?

How the internet changed Christmas

The internet has become so integral to our everyday lives that even the most old-fashioned items on the Christmas 'to do' list have now been transformed. 

So it's true that in some situations, we actually can't live without technology, but metaphorically speaking, could you have survived Christmas without it?

Here's my top 10 ways in which the internet changed Christmas in 2012:


Buoyed by smart phones and tablets, daily online usage jumps: report

If you work in a digital industry, the ubiquity of the internet is practically taken for granted. But that doesn't mean that the percentage of consumers accessing the internet on a regular basis isn't impressive. And it doesn't mean that percentage isn't growing.

In fact, according to Forrester Research, the number of adults in the United States who access the internet on a daily basis is growing more than one might imagine.


Steps and shadows: getting to grips with digital and sport

The thing about starting a tech business in a new industry is that you need to build up new contacts, more knowledge and generally get a grasp of what the heck brands are spending money on and how the people at the top are seeing the industry growing.

For the past 18 months I’ve been learning all I can about the sports industry and where technology fits in across both fan engagement and digital marketing.

Having spent years in print, digital media, ecommerce and technology and worked with clients ranging from massive multinational travel companies to tarot card readers to the NHS, I thought I had seen it all.

This assumption was erroneous...


Q&A: Chris Ramsbottom, Mobile Product Manager at BSkyB

Mobile, Product Managers, and the changing ‘landscape’ for journalism and broadcasting are all ‘so hot right now’, and topics we discuss a fair bit at Econ towers.

Chris Ramsbottom is a Mobile Product Manager at BSkyB, so I thought I’d ask him some questions, and get some views straight from the horse’s mouth.
