US consumers more likely to moan about brands on Twitter: study

The US and UK are said to be two nations divided by a common language, and it seems they are also divided by a common social network.

A new study by 360i has found that Twitter usage patterns vary greatly between the two nations, particularly when looking at what time of day people are active on the network and how they engage with brands.

For example, Twitter users in the UK are more likely to be active in the late morning and early afternoon, specifically between 10am and 1pm, while in the US people tend to be most engaged after 6pm.

A year on, how do the top 10 UK retailers use Pinterest?

Around this time last year I wrote a post looking at which of the top 10 UK retailers use Pinterest.

Back then Pinterest was the new kid on the block with bags of potential for building brand identity and driving sales.

To find out whether those brands have persisted with Pinterest or decided the grass is greener over on Google+, I’ve revisited the same retailers to see whether they still use the network and how their strategies have altered. 

The findings are below, but for more information on this topic check out our Pinterest for Business Report or our blog post on how the top 10 US retailers use Pinterest...

The state of digital marketing in Hong Kong: highlights from Digital Cream 2013

Over 100 senior marketers attended our inaugural roundtable event in Hong Kong last month. 

They deftly explored and shared nimble ways to utilise the very latest digital marketing ideas and techniques in order to better equip themselves for their future endeavours.

Some were intent on making stronger inroads into mainland China, others were planning on taking full advantage of the small but also highly lucrative local Hong Kong marketplace (a jewel in the China crown), and for a fair number it was to better hone their abilities and skills to market across the whole APAC region.

Four ways to drive engagement with user-generated content

User generated content (UGC) is not a new concept, but for digital marketers, UGC has never offered as many exciting possibilities for engaging with consumers and building brand loyalty.

With the recent billion dollar acquisitions of content companies like Instagram and Tumblr, tech giants are further demonstrating the immense value of content today,and the opportunities are apparent for marketers.

In a January 2013 Econsultancy/Adobe report on digital marketing trends, over 700 digital professionals identified content marketing as the single most significant trend in marketing today.

Content, in short, is king, so it’s incumbent upon brands to make good use of it.

How Econsultancy uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+

Inspired by the works of our reporting superstar David Moth, I decided that with all these big brands being covered in our series on social strategies, it was high time we threw our own hat into the ring.

As I’m the one doing it (and an egomaniac), I thought it might be fun to talk about how and why we use different social channels at Econsultancy...

Penguin 2.0: who were the winners and losers?

A few weeks have passed since Google’s long awaited and much speculated Penguin 2.0 update, and with the dust beginning to settle, we took a look at its impact in the UK.

There’s been no shortage of hype in the run-up to Penguin 2.0, with everybody’s favourite Google spokesperson and distinguished engineer Matt Cutts describing the forthcoming update as ‘a big one’ back in March.

But, so far at least, has it lived up to its billing as Google’s most advanced piece of spam-fighting technology to date?

It would be impossible for the modern CEO not to recognise the value of social media in keeping their company at the forefront of their market.

So why is it that so few CEOs engage personally? What is holding them back and why is it so important for them to actively participate in their company’s social media endeavours?

Transformation in digital marketing: five ways to work

It is not so much a revolution but a rapid evolution and digital transformation.

The growth of digital media, the convergence of paid, owned and earned media practices and the rapid growth and adoption of mobile and video have fueled change in the way we work in 2013. 

If you add to this equation the technological changes and innovation and the catalyst that is social media and content marketing it becomes apparent that dealing and adapting to change is a digital marketing necessity rather than the option that it used to be.
