Social Media May Stratify Online Services

Posted on in Marketing Technology

Facebook is a hub of consumers before all else. Yes, this consumption is primarily user generated content. What this content references, though, often plugs into purchasable goods. The only inconvenience? Leaving Facebook, or whatever other social media site, and actually ordering said good or service…at least for now.Resultantly, Facebook’s newest features target the gap between

Posted on in Apps Lifestyle Marketing Technology

The advice industry is vast. Personal counseling, finance, fitness, astrology, coaching  -name a niche and there is sure to be an instructor or specialist that offers keen advice. Its transition online was immediate.For every expert emailing newsletters or personal advice, though, there is also numerous websites offering generic advice for free.

News flash! Shazam just became profitable late this September. B2B startups and services can actually learn a good amount from this longstanding app.Fifteen years old, Shazam is evaluated at over $1 billion and boasts a billion + downloads. It asserts this ascent for three reasons:Advertising sales  Commissions on digital music sales Traffic referrals to streaming 


TechCrunch Should Stick to Technology

Posted on in Lifestyle Marketing Technology

Okay, time to break the fourth wall. I like TechCrunch…to an extent. So does just about everyone. The news site’s coverage of tech is admirable. It attracts a world of crazies and the best talent percolates to the top. That’s one reason I’ve never applied -to do so is insane. It’s like submitting a short story 


Marketplaces + SaaS = Demand

Posted on in Marketing Technology

One major trick to SaaS is making it applicable. Startups can offer the most intuitive user experience *evar*. In fact, they can offer the most incredible service this side of Timbuktu. Without relevancy, though, it is usually dead in the water.In the realm of B2B this means personnel. Great sales software is useless without sales 


Will the Internet Always be Laissez-Faire?

Posted on in Lifestyle Marketing Technology

Worldwide connection is what the internet promises. And slowly, we’re getting there. The benefits are pointless to list -they are just that many. As the world slowly gets closer geographic divides are less dramatic. Oh sure, they exist. A bandwidth connection is not going to change drinking water from dirty to clean…at least not directly.This 


State Development of Disruptive Software: Yay or Nay?

Posted on in Technology

Contrary to popular belief, online technology is not mature. It’s huge, yes, but not mature. In fact, online tech resembles other nascent industries from the late 19th century. Statistics and medicine particularly stand out. That may seem like a stretch. However, widespread adaptation of the “new” is all too similar.U.S. medicine struggled to gain legitimacy

Posted on in Marketing Technology

The actual Uber app of Medicine may one day arrive. For the time-being, though, would-be bidders must use crooked inner-circles. My point? Apps expose and fulfill laissez-a-faire currents rather than perpetuate them.Exclusive car services were around way before Uber or Lyft. Ditto for exclusive renters’ circles and Airbnb. They merely broaden and popularize a channel 


Social Games, IRL, and the Realm of Possibilities

Posted on in Lifestyle Marketing Technology

Video games don’t create a chemical dependence. Just ask your average Overwatch player, though, and we know they are addictive. About every online game cashes in on rare items, exclusive quests, etc.Competitiveness pervades such environments. Ironic, then, that few games require any sort of “skill” as we typically define them. Fine motor ability and an 


Small Startup? Open Betas are Still for You

Posted on in Marketing Technology Web Design

As pontificated easier, Agile methods are superior for software development. It’s also nothing new. Versioning is older than the 80s. The real question is how versioning happens. This week’s biggest software news was that Apple unveiled an open beta of its iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Fan bois, of course, are drooling. The rest of
