I pitched this segment thinking I would talk about a few different apps that would help parents manage and monitor their kids' screen time activities. From what I learned, I ended up with a very different segment. Please watch and let me know your thoughts on this. Thanks!

These days it's all about the experience our customers have with our companies. This post by +Jeff Korhan is spot on when it comes to explaining how and when to create touch points. 
Every touchpoint with your business matters, starting from when buyers first make the discovery online to long after the acquisition and consumption of the products and services. A powerful way to enhance that experience is with the content.

Great post from +Jason Falls on how Vespa listened to their fans to create a successful blog that attracted visitors, page views, and generated sales. Check it out now on the Agents of Change blog!
Vespa wanted to acquire new customers. The chic, stylish scooter company felt strongly that if they could find people who were just like their current customers, they would have a great shot at marketing their trendy mode of transportation to them.
