No such thing as spare time.

No such thing as free time.

No such thing as downtime.

All you got is life time.

Go.

Is Pinterest mobile the key to social commerce

I

By now we’ve all heard of the Pinterest phenomenon and how the site grew to 10 million users in just nine months. How they grew an additional 155% between December 2011/ January 2012. How it’s the fastest growing site of all time. Out of all these are amazing stats but my favorite is 20%. That’s how much of the traffic to Pinterest is from mobile devices. Other than the fact...

Orphion: a Venn Diagram you can play on your iPad (video)

O

Orphion is an iPad app created by Bastus Trump as a part of his masters thesis at the University of Arts Berlin. I’ve been in love with the apps that Smule has created and feel like we are moving towards a new set of instruments, based on the strengths of the touchscreen. Smule’s Zephyr is one of my favorites and my kids might actually get a chance to play with Orphion. Enjoy!

And yet, there is always room for improvement. I need the iPhone – not an app – to be aware. What I mean, is that it needs to know where I am (which it does) and what time it is (which it...

Mobile Marketing Class: Day 17 – Mobile’s Fit

M

Tonight we reviewed all the other marketing methods that mobile marketers need to consider when creating a mobile marketing plan/campaign. Mobile marketing is not a standalone and overall the goal of the mobile marketer – other than to drive revenue – is to insert digital into the physical experience through things like mobile search and scanning while making the digital experience...

Mobile Marketing Class: Day 16 – Advertising

M

This past Thursday we we covered mobile advertising. This is a relatively new model and there is a ton that businesses need to learn. One of the main differences we discussed in previous classes is that people see mobile phones as an extension of themselves. They are apart of our most personal conversations and for most of us, they’re never more than three feet away from us at any time. So...
