The Value and Timing of Google+

So Facebook is great, right? Well, besides the privacy issues… and the horrible “group management”… and the fact that the only way to follow someone is if you both mutually agree to it.

As you know, nearly infinite circumstances can drive mobile engagement. Smartly leveraging those circumstances to your advantage can make the difference between a half-baked effort and a business-driving, exceptional experience for consumers.

Creating a Smooth M-Commerce Experience

Providing an easy enjoyable shopping experience via mobile can put your brand at the top of a consumer’s mind. But, providing a poorly designed, difficult to navigate experience can place you in the consumer’s rear view mirror. Though the act of actually making purchases via mobile isn’t heavily adopted among consumers just yet, I’m always […]
