As we approach the end of Social Media Week, we caught the last session at Hearst with Beyond the Like for Lifestyle Brands with presentations by Richard Jones of EngageSciences, Eve Sangenito of Brandwatch, David St. John Tradewell of Econsultancy, We Are Social's Robin Grant and Craig Hepburn, Global Head of Digital and Social for Nokia.
One of the biggest takeaways was an urge for marketers to look beyond sheer numbers and to look at who is engaging and what actions these lead to. Why blanket market to 50,000 fans when only 9,000 are actually bringing in the majority of engagement, shares and revenue.
To celebrate the launch of our new digital marketing and ecommerce awards, #TheDigitals, I've rounded up six brilliant examples of innovation in mobile.
It follows a recent post that flagged up five great examples of social media marketing excellence.
To avoid any accusations of bias, these are all examples that fall outside the eligibility period for the current awards, but give an idea of the sort of thing we are looking for.
#TheDigitals are the new awards that recognise the best in digital marketing and ecommerce. Award entries must be submitted online before the deadline March 13, 2013.
How quickly fortunes change. Just eight years ago Nokia was the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer. Today it’s so far behind the competition that it trails beleaguered Blackberry in shipments to retailers.
A “challenger brand” is what Tejal Patel, global head of social commerce and performance for Nokia, now calls the company.
Last week almost 1,000 marketers attended the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York for Econsultancy’s JUMP 2013 event.
The agenda for the multichannel conference included speakers from Coca-Cola, Abercrombie & Fitch, Adobe, Nokia and IBM.
Obviously it’s not possible to condense all the different tips and recommendations from the whole day into one blog post, but here are a selection of the most interesting points and takeaways.
A number of them were taken from Twitter using the hashtag #cometoJump, and unfortunately not all the quotes were attributed correctly. If you can claim any of the soundbites or know who said them, please let me know in the comments...
Many brands have tried to nail it, but replicating e-commerce sites on Facebook doesn’t work. At least according to Nokia and Heinz.
At Facebook Marketing 2012 speakers from both brands said that while Facebook can be used as a platform for offering fans exclusive or limited edition products, it is a mistake to simply repliate existing storefronts.
We Are Social marketing director Tom Ollerton highlighted two Heinz case studies where the FMCG brand had used Facebook as a platform to sell new products to its fans.
Heinz wanted to sell just over 1m bottles of its limited edition Balsamic Vinegar Ketchup, so We Are Social recommended that an intial run of 3,000 bottles be sold exlusively through Facebook to build excitement around the launch.
In the patent war between two of the largest consumer electronics companies in the world, Samsung and Apple, Apple won another victory yesterday as US judge Lucy Koh kept in place a ban on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
What's more: last Friday, Judge Koh placed a ban on sales of one of Samsung's phones, the Galaxy Nexus.
My how the mighty have fallen.
RIM, once a household name thanks to the then-ubiquitous BlackBerry, has seen competitors, namely Apple, eat its lunch. And its future prospects look more and more bleak each day.
Following Microsoft’s acquisitions and “partnership,” palm greasing is getting more exciting by the hour.
The headlines have been coming fast since the end of Q3 11: $8.5b Skype acquisition. $250m quarterly infusion to Nokia. $24m in subsidies for Windows Mobile app developers. $1b Aol patent grab – now flipped to Facebook for $500m. Vague, behind the scenes dealing with Comcast. And now this: a $300m investment in Barnes & Nobles’ Nook division.
Something is up.
While it may take a quarter or two to figure out just how well Nokia and AT&T's launch of the Lumia 900 did or didn't go, the device which both companies have bet big on has brought the kind of attention to Windows Phone that Microsoft was certainly hoping for.
That apparently has AT&T's biggest rival, Verizon, taking note.
Nokia is facing perhaps its toughest time yet as a business.
No longer Finland’s most valuable company (electric utilities company Fortum took the lead last month on Helsinki’s Stock Exchange) it finds itself a challenger brand after years of dominance - with the Lumia 900 positioned as the way to break into the sophisticated US smartphone market.
But with this adjustment also comes opportunity: the company is able and prepared to take risks and try new approaches. Nokia’s approach to marketing and the success of this is critical to the business’ transformation, including driving a more connected organisation that is able to build and thrive in a new mobile ecosystem.
As such, the company has worked with Brilliant Noise to structure and roll out its social strategy across the business – focusing on integrating this into every employee's daily life, becoming a more social business from the inside out.
After last week's launch of the Lumia 900, all eyes are on Nokia and Microsoft to see if their new partnership is a game changer in the mobile industry.
Following on from our post on Nokia and Microsoft last week, we've asked a few industry experts what their views were on the future of the partnership and how it will affect marketers and their future mobile campaigns.
