Estudio exhaustivo muestra a los líderes de opinión en los medios sociales clave

Estudio exhaustivo muestra a los líderes de opinión en los medios  sociales clave

Las opiniones del extenso público de medios sociales están influidas por un grupo más reducido de “Líderes de opinión en Internet” que generan el contenido que otros consumen.

Las nuevas conclusiones de Microsoft Advertising, sacadas de la investigación anual de mercado “Global Web Index” de TrendStream basada en 32.000 usuarios de Internet de todo el mundo, sugieren que estos líderes de opinión son los guardianes de un público mucho más extenso y que los publicistas que desean captar a usuarios de medios sociales hacen caso omiso de los “Líderes de opinión en Internet” con lo que ello conlleva.

Un plan de márketing online balanceado

Un plan de márketing online balanceado

Cuando el presupuesto es ajustado, como el de casi todas las empresas hoy día, donde cada dólar o cada euro gastado es pensado cuidadosamente, diseñar un plan de márketing es una tarea similar a la de tratar de armar un complicado rompecabezas.

Tradicionalmente, cuando se hablaba de plan de márketing, las acciones online quedaban reservadas para los más “osados” o “vanguardistas”. Los cambios en los hábitos culturales de los consumidores, y su forma de comunicarse e interactuar, hacen que la publicidad online empiece a tomar cada vez más relevancia.

La segmentación está aumentando el gasto publicitario en Internet

La segmentación está aumentando el gasto publicitario en Internet

La última encuesta del barómetro publicitario de la EIAA pone de manifiesto que las nuevas tecnologías de segmentación junto con una demanda cada vez mayor de un ROI medible continúan alejando los presupuestos de  marketing de la televisión y de los canales directos para dirigirlos a Internet.

Entre el 94% de las personas encuestadas en el Barómetro publicitario de la EIAA que manifestaron su intención de aumentar los presupuestos online el año que viene, la capacidad de captar al público objetivo mediante tecnologías como behavioural targeting se citó con frecuencia como motivo para dirigir la inversión hacia Internet.

Truth On PR Spam

Just today, I stumbled upon a very interesting campaign carried out by RealWire regarding the issue of irrelevant press release emails or more widely known as PR spam. As we all know, the PR and media industries are both facing unprecedented changes in the communication landscape. The almost free nature of online reporting is leading the publishing industry to pressure journalists to produce more content in lesser time.

In the meantime, PR professionals are now under pressure to not only deliver coverage through traditional media channels, but to also engage other influencers such as bloggers and the general public. The relationships that are formed needs to be as efficient as possible due to shortage of time. Leer más “Truth On PR Spam”

Is China Innovative?

by Stefan Lindegaard

I tapped into an interesting discussion on LinkedIn. Chris Gelken, who is host and co-producer of Today, a live news magazine, asked whether China is an innovative society.

Personally, I find the development of China to be both fascinating and a bit frightening seen from a Western perspective. Based on several visit, my take is that if China avoids too many financial bubbles, then the drive and ambition of the Chinese people to climb the value chain ladder will turn it into an innovation hotspot sooner than many think.

Building your reputation online


Dynamic and interactive pages have most impact, writes Julia Talevski.

Paragraph upon paragraph of text, large picture files, heavy-handed Flash animations, generic stock-photo images and static content. These are some of the common mistakes businesses make when establishing an online presence.

The web is known for fast-paced change, so it’s absolutely crucial that your business website meets a customer’s expectations. Leer más “Building your reputation online”

Arrogance traps for entrepreneurs


Planning.A business plan forces you to think through the fundamentals.

Running your own show takes confidence-but beware your limitations.

With the new year dawns new hope. Some will hit the treadmill. Others will clean out that musty closet or dump their loser boyfriend. And still others will muster the courage to leave their still-limping employers and strike out on their own.

Starting a company is scary stuff in any environment. It takes vision, capital, courage, conviction and, yes, even a touch of arrogance. Indeed, lack of confidence can kill a young company. But so, too, can thinking you’re all that when you’re not.

How to strike the right balance between confidence and arrogance? Start by avoiding the following classic traps. I wish they were clichés, but sadly they aren’t.

“Business plans are for dummies.”

Think business plans are just for investors? Wrong. Those plans are primarily for you. Compiling a business plan forces you to think through the fundamentals, from financing to marketing. The plan also communicates the same vision to employees, lawyers, accountants and other key players.

Better still, the mere fact of writing this stuff down allows you to measure the performance of your business. If you can’t measure it, you surely can’t manage it. Leer más “Arrogance traps for entrepreneurs”

Packer may be ready to cash in his chips

THEY are the pivotal moments in life – the ones that trigger a re-evaluation of priorities that can result in a radical shift of direction.

Births and deaths – that never-ending cycle of change and renewal – tend to focus the mind like no other events.

And so perhaps it is no coincidence that in the week that James Packer‘s wife, Erica Baxter, gave birth to a son, Jackson, talk has resurfaced about what the future holds for one of Australia’s wealthiest families. Leer más “Packer may be ready to cash in his chips”

El tendencioso Dr. Utterson | Generosidad y marcas |

La generosidad [Generación G] puede ser considerada una tendencia, tanto en las personas como en las empresas. Ésta posiblemente este basada en nuestro cansancio respecto a la codicia, las personas codiciosas y sus efectos en la economía.

La generosidad emerge como tendencia junto a esta una nueva cultura “online” que estamos viviendo y de la que estamos aprendiendo.

En este nuevo estado de las cosas, las compañías deben re-enfocarse, de prestar atención a sus ombligos, a compartir con pasión y lograr reconocimiento. Leer más “El tendencioso Dr. Utterson | Generosidad y marcas |”

Random Influencer – Experts aren’t cool enough anymore

I’m not a good listener in conversations, but I’m pretty sure I’m the best listener on others’ conversations in public places. I was at a dinner tonight in a local restaurant, just one of those casual Hong Kong restaurant and I got inspired by some random influencers.

So people from the table behind me were talking about iPhone plans, they said Hong Kong telco Three (used to be the exclusive iphone provider in Hong Kong) sucks at it’s 3G network and customer service, and that he actually switched to Smartone (telco that started offering iphone service 2 weeks ago), even though his phone contract was yet to end. And he was saying that he loves the service provided by Smartone now. Leer más “Random Influencer – Experts aren’t cool enough anymore”

Sell me quick with your value. Wait, what’s value?

Maybe you don’t think you make a sales pitch. But if you are a blogger, your post’s title is a sales pitch. If you tweet, your Twitter page is a sales pitch to follow you. Your Facebook or LinkedIn page sells to your friends and followers. If you merely work for a business and mention their name, you are a part of an image that you become a part of when the customer is ready to buy.
Can you sum up what you do in a few words?  Do you know what you offer that is of value to your customers/readers? Do you know what your value is and how your customer/reader sees it? Do you understand what kind of sales pitch you are making to your customer/reader? Leer más “Sell me quick with your value. Wait, what’s value?”

6 Reasons Why You Should Do Personal Design Projects


There’s a misconception that creativity is always on: that either you have it or you don’t, or that if you produce great work once, you’ll always be able to produce great work.

Now if only that were true, right?

6 Reasons Why You Should Do Personal Design Projects

The truth – and I think most creatives will agree – is that the creative juices that lubricate and facilitate the flow of unique and effective ideas sometimes dries up and you need, from time to time, to refill and ferment those juices before it’s once again ready for public consumption.

One of the most effective ways to inspire creativity, I’ve found, is to do some self-initiated work; its what’s best described as personal design projects.

Whether it’s just sketches, creating a poster, or designing a super awesome personal blog, there’s something to be said about doing things for yourself that really brings out your creativity and nurtures your passions.

Why should you work on personal design projects regularly when you get paid do it for other people? Leer más “6 Reasons Why You Should Do Personal Design Projects”

Tips for the Not So Creative

Author Adam

But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to work in a creative environment.  You might even feel like you have a creative flare, but decided you were more business savvy, so you studied Marketing and Advertising in college to allow yourself the chance to work with creative minds.  Well, I’m here to tell you that you can be both, or at the very least, more creative.

At AgencyNet we have a saying that “you don’t have to be a designer to be creative.”  And I have to admit, I was bit bewildered when I first heard this.  So many agencies clearly distinguish between the “creatives” and the “suits.”  After a couple of months, I began to grasp what this meant – I was and could be just as creative as a designer if I wanted to be.  My job doesn’t and shouldn’t end when I hand off a brief to the creative team, it should keep going and going throughout the entire creative process.
