The Performance Funnel- Why Combine eDM, Search, Social and Affiliate Marketing?

Written by Matt McDougall
Friday, 16 October 2009 14:25 - Last Updated Saturday, 17 October 2009 08:43


Research data from SinoTech Group , comScore , GroupM and M80 indicates online searchers are also more likely to keep a brand in mind if they have seen a combination of paid search ads and social media.

The research by these companies should not be a surprise for those working in the digital
marketing industry but when reflecting on this I wanted to know if we could get even a better outcome if then combining with other digital channels such as eDM and Affiliate marketing. Also, I wanted to know if there was there a more optimal time when to engage the use of these various channels within a campaign cycle. For example, lets say my marketing objective is: To increase online sales of a new model of a phone. Could we influence the potential consumer within the buying cycle more effectively by including Social, eDM and Search with targeted affiliate programs? It seemed logical but is there a…

Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

A very very inspiring song by Baz Luhrmann. Makes me wanna live more....i'm gonna download this one and sync it with my ipod...this is gonna be my daily morning anthem.



Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
imagine.

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be t…

A Fantastic Poem by a 9 yr old Kiddo

A sweet poem by a 9 yr old who was stranded outside in the cold wind, near the pool at a club since her parents got delayed from their Yoga class... amazing!!!


When are you coming out? I ask myself as I watch the lonely pool

Twas a cold and frozen day.

Just thinking of how warm you were made me shiver

The wind of the pure black night swept shivers and darkness into my poor bones and flesh

The wind was harsh and took no pity on my frozen soul.

You were warm inside

While I was left to die and perish 'in the unforgiving world of hell !!!

Twas left alone

To care for the flesh and bone

That may be history

But why is a mystery

Why was I left 'in the cold

Acting like I was brave and bold

You came truly late

And let me die of fate

And here I'm standing stiff as a bone

Laying here ready to moan

Here I am ready to yell

Cause I'm in HELL !!!

Facebook’s Newest Funding Source: You

by Michael Arrington on April 3, 2009. Source: Techcrunch

Facebook is testing a new virtual gifts product that allows users to give “credits” to other users. The idea is that you can give other users these credits in addition to or in lieu of commenting or liking a message or status. So if for example I say “out walking the dog,” other people can throw some credits my way. VentureBeat has an exclusive overview. Here’s why Facebook likes the product - you pay for the credits with cash, to the tune of $1 per 100 credits. That’s enough incentive for them to test this out, despite the fact that anyone who looks at it for more than a moment will realize it’s doomed to fail. There’s no real world parallel to this gift, like Facebook’s existing (and reportedly underperforming) virtual gifts product that lets you give someone an image of a cupcake or whatever on their birthday. My strong guess is very few people will use this, I can’t imagine someone saying “nice status update, here’s some fak…

Google Search Exposes Credit Card Details

Image
Techtree News Staff, Apr 01, 2009 1628 hrs ISTGoogle spokesman says information has been now removed
Just days after the Symantec credit card information leak fiasco was exposed by BBC News, there is more bad news for credit card users in the UK.

This is because personal and credit card details of thousands of Visa, Mastercard, and American Express customers were listed online and were freely accessible via a simple Google search. About 19,000 Brits are allegedly affected.

According to media reports, the information was first posted on an unsecured server in Vietnam, used by fraudsters. The site was closed down in February, but the information remained available on Google.

Telegraph.co.uk quoted UK trade association for payments APACS spokesperson as saying that most of the cards on the list had already been cancelled, but there are concerns that their owners were not made aware of the fact that their credit card details had been leaked online. The report added that a Google spokesman sai…
