2015 starts with a big (personal) bang. Sad and really, really good news. The sad part is I will leave Cologne, the good part is I will join on of the best global product strategy and design firms. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

You've got an App. It works well. Its being downloaded. Job done? Many marketers seem to think so but this is actually just the beginning.  25% of all apps are used just once after download, then discarded. Comparatively few apps enjoy regular and valuable usage.

This first edition of Think with Google Live looks at the strategies and marketing initiatives helping brands succeed on app re-engagement – as well as unearthing some of the common pitfalls.

Share your questions and comments using #ThinkLive  for a chance to see them answered live during the Hangout on Air!

Moderated by Jon Mew, Chief Operating Officer, IAB UK.

With:
Matthew Goldhill, Creative Strategist, Mobile 5
David Sandler, Global Account Director, Fetch
Max Macintosh, Speacialist Agency Head, Google
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google UK for Business. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Outstanding idea! "The Random Darknet Shopper is an automated online shopping bot which we provide with a budget of $100 in Bitcoins per week. Once a week the bot goes on shopping spree in the deep web where it randomly choses and purchases one item and has it mailed to us." https://wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.bitnik.org/r/

Story

Transformation | Strategy | Innovation | Creative Technology
Introduction
In my work I aim to establish a human-centered, interdisciplinary process that creates desirable and sustainable changes in behavior and form – of individuals, systems and organizations – often for socially progressive outcomes. Design, in my experience, is about applying contextual skills in non-traditional territories, which then yield non-traditional, creatively designed outputs; i.e., new roles, new organizations, new systems, and disruptive business models can be formed.

Biography 

Success is not linear, and sometimes life does not go according to plan. But somehow we are convinced that forcing square pegs into round holes is how we succeed.

I have always followed my instincts, which has often meant taking a detour from the typical linear plan for success. I constantly seek unique and explorative experiences to build expertise through direct participation. I have engaged in a diversity of activities: from living on the streets of Amsterdam to running a punk mail order to cofounding a FabLab (Fabrication Laboratory) and a Coworking Space that challenges standard modes of working. My educational background is equally diverse; I have an degree in Engineering, a Master of Fine Arts, and an MBA. I am often invited as a Guest Lecturer to share my work on design strategy and innovation at architecture, design, engineering, and business schools internationally.
