We're all Self-Centered and "Me Marketing" is #1

We are at a point in our marketing careers that we need to understand one extreme truth: for the most part, people are self-centered.  Sure, they want to see what Susie Q is posting on Twitter or read about John Doe's new job on Facebook, but let's be honest here -they're more excited about their opportunity to comment.  To give their voice a platform.  To 'like' and be 'liked'. To be followed.  To be shared.  Pay attention to me.  Me, me, and me.

Viral Marketing Campaign - The ALS #IceBucketChallenge Debate

We've all seen it by now, everyone from celebrities to your grandma are dumping buckets of ice water on their head in the name of ALS.  People are challenged to either dump a bucket of ice water on their head or donate to ALS.  Many are doing both so they can get in on the action and also help a great cause.  It's caught on like wildfire and the results are huge.  Problem?  Well, there are two sides to every coin.

Why Online Privacy Should be a Top Priority for Businesses Too
It seems like every other day on the news we’re seeing stories about online security breaches, personal data being leaked, debit/credit card numbers being hacked, etc. The list goes on and on. It almost seems like we’re desensitized to the news now that it happens so often. But, in the day where we hand over our personal information, our first born, and the keys to our house to every app on Facebook that wants us to play their game –I think we need to start watching our backs a little bit. Online privacy should be a top priority in the days where we aren’t taking the time to read privacy statements and if we did, we’d be seriously concerned about what is being shared.

Narrowing Down My Choices

In response to the resounding number of replies I've received (AKA crickets), I've looked back over our choices for Twitter contests. At this point, if I had to narrow down the choices, I'd pick one of two options. I'd be interested in either a "Tweet an Answer" contest or a "Picture Contest". You can refer back to our last post for more info on these types of contests.

Marketing for Startups

If you build it they will come... Hopefully.  There are so many start ups right now on and off the internet.  Now that you've developed this great company, how are you going to get the word out to potential clients and customers?  Being a start up, you probably don't have a ton of money to throw at the marketing side of your business.  What's cheap and relatively painless?

EMV Technology May Mean the End for Coin

Coin’s product launch was set for this Summer 2014 and just a few weeks ago they delayed the product launch until Spring 2015. We can only assume that this has a lot to do with the new chip and pin technology that they are lacking. They are offering a beta program to their 10,000 pre-order customers to try out, but this isn’t solving the problem.
