content-marketing.jpg2 Brands That Rock Content Marketing

Modern web users are always searching for new content to consume. From hot new startups to big businesses, everyone has to provide valuable content to engage their customers and keep them hooked in order to get visibility for their brand and also to stay relevant. Brands that are fully invested in content marketing are the ones driving conversions with informative and interactive content hubs, winning social media presences and use of innovative new technologies. They are the brands pushing the boundaries with their content marketing campaigns, always creating something fresh and inventive to capture audience attention and boost awareness.

Most SMBs look at the powerful content marketing efforts of large enterprises and mistakenly think they don’t have the digital resources to succeed with content themselves. When the reality is that it is possible for any business to succeed with content marketing, provided it has the right strategy in place. We can all learn from the best, so let’s take a look at two examples of top brands with killer content marketing sites.

Starbucks

With widely adopted mobile apps, and massive social audiences, Starbucks concentrates on social media branding that expertly expresses what the brand is all about. Starbucks does use posts to advertise products but it is done rather subtly and always with a lot of personality and originality. But the brand’s social channels are more …

Need a report button for bad sales call attempts.

Just had an interesting sales call.  Well, there wasn't any call per se.  The phone rang and the caller ID was for a website.  When I answered, all that was playing was music and no person on the other end.  Annoying, right?  I hung up, looked up the website and found out it was a cloud VoIP website.  As soon as I went to the website a chat window popped up welcoming me.  Ugh.

Not sure if clever sales attempt phone call or rude way of luring me to their website.  I'm feeling the latter and also feeling taken advantage of.  I want to report this deceitful attempt at a sales call, but don't know if that's a thing?  If I mention the name then I also feel I'm spreading the word for them for free.

Fortunately, I bet the people dealing with things like this complaint system might actually be the ones likely to care ;-)

For example: in the past I had great success with the FCC's Do Not Call list (Which I honestly wasn't expecting to work, but it absolutely did! I had needed to get a landline, and as soon as I did, it got a ton of daily telemarketing calls. Soon after adding the number to the DNC list, the calls dropped to nothing. The system worked!)

Nice.  In retrospect, I am just being bitter about it haha.  Just like we at EE do need data, I'm sure FCC needs the data as well to look upon and see 'do we deal with this now?  Is it a large or small problem?' :)  Who knows maybe they've already been reported or maybe I'm the first!

Is it possible to have a place where people with different age range will hang together?

It sounds funny, and I think Kyle can also attest to it, but Pokemon Go achieves this. I've done raids that have included elementary aged kids and retirees. I've seen a lot of stories about children playing with their parents and grandparents and rejuvenating their relationships. The key to achieving this balance could be giving the users something on which to focus besides their own social lives. A 16 year old's social interests most likely won't align with a 30 year old's interests, but creating a common goal that interests people of any age can bring their worlds together.

Hello!

Here's the issue: I've got three columns of data: Individual, Amount Sold, Date Sold.

People have multiple sales for each given date.

I want to find each person's best night, i.e. all the sales for each given date combined for that date, and then I'd like to see the max for each individual, so I can show them their best night.

I can do this by creating a new sheet with three columns, one containing every date from 1/1/17 to 12/31/17, the next containing the name of a single person, and the third containing a SUMIF formula, so that I have the sum of each person's sales for each day, and then take the MAX from that column. I am sure, however, that there is a better way. A PivotTable seems to only give me the largest single sale from each individual, instead of the night with the largest sale.

What's the simpler solution here?

Recognizing that digital transformations will never end can be scary, like everything in life is dynamic, it is just another challenge to be faced.

Reconhecer que as transformações digitais nunca acabarão pode ser assustador, porém como tudo na vida é dinâmico esse é mais um desafio para ser enfrentado.

"Digital transformation itself is a thankless task. It is one which is constantly criticized and scrutinized, but there is unlikely to ever be a satisfactory answer to the question. Digital transformation is a journey, according to Whitelock. It is the constant pursuit of remaining relevant and avoiding obsolescence."

Ain't that the truth!

I sincerely hope (and believe) that we'll be able to get away from the current situation of people constantly looking at their phones. For AR to really live up to its full potential, we'll have to have it in some way that doesn't involve looking down at a phone screen (since, as Juana noted, you still have to interact with the world and a mobile phone makes that terrible!).

Google Glass may have failed, but I think that was more a matter of the tech not being quite ready yet. Socially, people weren't ready for it, and the design of it was far too goofy/geeky looking to take off for any sort of mainstream adoption. (Not to mention a high price point for something so new, without clear benefits.)

But take a look at how Snapchat is working on their glasses and have tried to apply some decent style to it. And when you consider that Apple has been dropping tons of hints about seriously getting into AR, I imagine we're getting very close to good wearable solutions.
