Seriously clever marketing from Nivea...
 
An incredibly interesting iBeacon use case. A wearable, disposable iBeacon is made available via a magazine ad and tracks your child at the beach.

Interesting concept, great marketing.

Just a thought...
Why does customer service interactions with large organisations* have to be so utterly rubbish?
Instead of using email threads, couldn't we imagine an environment that looks more like a "light" version of a project management/crm platform where all interactions and exchanged documents are neatly logged and represented, where we can add notes (text, links, images, videos) and where we get to see a photo of the customer service representative (adding a personal touch) who will take ownership of the problem? 

PS: I must admit that First Direct (HSBC) is actually very good and they can easily be contacted via phone or email. The customer service agents are very good.  But still, a timeline of interactions with annotated documents etc would be handy.

Great stuff... +David Mihm will be speaking at SearchLove London! His 2012 presentation was a real eye-opener.  Rather literally, since it was the day after the night before (Industry drinks).
Sitting there that morning I was rather glad that we went for the video bundle package.

Yup, you definitely need to be in it for the long run...

Great content certainly helps business, but it isn't as simple as "publish, share, convert new customers." In today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand explains what's really going on.

Google is becoming absolutely "incontournable"... 
 
Google can cater to travelers looking to quickly book hotels: Google Licenses Room 77 Software in Mobile Travel-Booking Push
Google Inc. wants you to reserve a hotel room from your smartphone, and it’s spending money on the technology to make it happen.

Worrying... or rather disappointing?
Obviously, traffic does not mean conversion and without some long-term marketing efforts the conversion rates will be lower.
But still, part of me thinks... hat off for pulling this off.

Can a site that is spamming on an industrial scale rank for a competitive keyword such as SEO? The answer would appear to be yes.

Damn, the KitKat update has messed up my SD card access...
Should not have gone Android 4.4

Security might have improved, but usability not really!

Did you actually know that you can use Office Online for free?

You can create, edit, save, print and collaborate on docs from within your browser. This also works on Safari (iOS). Everything is automatically backed up and synced to your free OneDrive.

I had actually completely missed out on this with the massive Office 365 push that we recently experienced. So you can do Excel on your iPad for free!

Story
Introduction
Passionate about travel and all things new media & technology.  Fascinated by social media, cloud computing, PR, mobile marketing, apps and marketing automation. Constantly amazed at how technology impacts on society.
I know quite a bit about online marketing and PR, but don't consider myself a guru or expert, just an eternal student!  Note: when Brian Solis says he is not an expert in social media then people should really be cautious - and more humble - before calling themselves social media gurus.

To keep fit I have been doing martial arts for about 25 years now.  Before leaving Belgium for the United Kingdom I trained with Sensei Richard Prospero for many years. Now I train in Muay Thai at Hakuda Gym in Burnley.

I moved to the UK after meeting my English partner in Bangkok and we now are the proud parents of a beautiful baby daughter.

Absolutely stunning hotel with levels of customer service that are second to none. Definitely one of the better SLH affiliate hotels I have had the pleasure to enjoy. When booking the hotel, we weren't aware of how well located it was. The Traghetto (little ferry that gets you across the Canal) was just on the hotel's doorstep and it takes you straight to the vegetable and "Pescheria" fish market. Nearby this market square you find a high concentration of excellent Osteria (similar to a tavern, pub, restaurant) that are not solely aimed at tourists.

A great day out, in a stunning setting, with our 3-year old. I think we will be returning rather frequently since you get a complimentary Annual Pass when paying full-fare. The only negative: the food is atrocious (and the coffee is rather poor)! But this issue can easily be circumvented by bringing your own picnic. There are many dedicated picnic areas (indoors and outdoors).

I only ever get take-away here, but the food is consistently excellent. If it wasn't for the fact that our little one doesn't manage to sit through an entire meal (yet) I would certainly also be tempted to book a table.

We went a few weeks ago, for the set 6-course dinner. This table d'hôte is a real gem in a rather unique setting. The food was amazing and we enjoyed the experience that much that we made it our mission to have dinner here again when we next visit Edinburgh. (I was absolutely blown away by the elderflower ice cream with gooseberry jelly)
