Mobile Marketing Class: Day 13 – iPad


Tonight, we talked about the phenomenon known as the iPad. We started off by trying to define what the iPad is. Is it a mobile device? Is it a game changer or a fad?

LinkedIn or Facebook for B2B? (infographic)


This is an interesting infographic and there are two things that really stand out as critical to the argument. People do not shut off business thinking when on Facebook. Uh . . . maybe . . . Why do B2B businesses advertise during sporting events? Good point but I’m not sure that watching TV and interacting with a brand on Facebook is a truly a one-to-one. Plus, I’m not sure that B2B...
