Twitter Researcher: Customers Will Pay More to Brands Who Respond to Tweets.
It’s easy to understand that customer service in social media, as in any other channel, is conceptually a good idea. Assigning a quantifiable ROI to it, however, is another story. That’s what Wayne Hu

No one looks at browser shares anymore, it's a good chance to share with you one of the many stories of me being wrong. :)

Below is the trend of browser shares from W3Schools for every other year (all here: http://goo.gl/cLq6). There are many lessons. For example, never be cocky because you are only three years from being replaced!

Ok. The story....

When Chrome was first being dogfooded internally at Google I was excited (I always am about dogfooding new Google hardware and software). Installing the new browser was a disappointment. Other than loading really fast, it did everything worse than Firefox. And, as I wrote to my peers, why the hell did the world need another browser, Firefox is great!!

I dogfooded like a good employee, but I primarily spent time with Firefox.

When the first public version came out, I did a small yawn. "Ok Google, good job trying an alternative to IE. But NO EXTENSIONS! Give me a break Google."

I stayed with Firefox.

Chrome kept getting better. It was still faster a few months on. But, now the rendering was better, the security was insanely good, more things started to work

I switched to doing all internal Google work on Chrome, everything did work better there. I still did not know why the world needed a new browser.

I think it was the concept of extensions you could load yourself that did it for me. I started using it a lot more.

And, I started to see little things like "Page & Go" (I'm irritated the Microsoft Edge, still (!), does not have this). Other small customer-centric features, it started to fell like the browser was being built by people who used browsers.

Now, there was no going back.

I have to admit, at this point I was still not sure the world needed a new browser. At this point we are a year or so out in public.

It took me a lot longer to see why the world needed a new browser. In hindsight, it was the massive pace of innovation that the Chrome team has driven (there has been nothing even 50 miles close when you look at the other browsers). Chrome has gotten fat, but if you compare evolutions, it is still the thinnest and undeniably the best. It is important to point out I don't work in the Chrome team, but I see how the grand plan for Chrome being critical to Google driving new innovations (life exclusively on the web, faster videos, Chrome OS, and so many new things).

We often don't see the grand vision. And, that was my mistake.

The numbers below prove that you can take on an entrenched monopoly (IE in this case). The numbers below prove that innovation can drive adoption. The number below are both a feather in Google's cap, and the trend is also a warning to not be complacent.

I was wrong about Chrome. Massively so. I'm so proud of what Google's Chrome team has accomplished.

The services provided by Meadon Marketing have become a very important part of or day to day business. As a local based company we need to constantly be engaging with our potential customer base & the regular posts that Jason creates do this superbly. The content is always interesting & the blog articles are well written & relevant.

We have been working with Meadon Marketing for the past 2 years. The original brief was to increase our web and social media presence, with the aim of increasing our direct business. We work in a competitive environment with many corporate players enjoying huge marketing budgets. Working closely with Meadon we have built a direct sales department that now represents 20% and increasing of our overall income. Meadon have complete control of our day to day social and web marketing, with a meeting once a month to review progress and agree a plan for the following month. I can with complete confidence recommend Meadon Marketing.

The service we receive from Meadon Marketing is excellent. Very responsive and reliable. Jason manages our Adwords and the results are better than when I did it, and better than a previous agency – having the confidence to no longer worry about this aspect of the business, is a great relief.

Hi Dom, thank you for the positive review. It's a pleasure working with you.

Meadon have advised us on Adwords Keywords over this last month. I thought I knew a reasonable amount about how google and google adwords worked, but boy was I wrong! In just 20 minutes my keywords, negative keywords, phrases, phrase types and everything to do with adwords had been challenged. I left it with Jason and now he has not only made my adwords budget go further, but I am getting a vastly superior ROI ! Furthermore, he pointed out several issues with my website design and 'sales funnel' which meant that even though the number of people landing on my site had increased, the website was losing them in a poor bounce rate. With a few tweaks to design, I am now seeing a much better adwords performance and conversion into new customers! Brilliant. Best thing I've done in ages.

Since 2012 Jolly Parrot sailing have been using Meadon marketing extensively to manage our google adwords campaign. Meadons approach as been tailored directly to our needs and the result of this is a successful campaign with rising sales month on month. While it can be argued that there are many other marketing mediums available we feel the the internet is certainly the most powerful and as such, to avoid the many pitfalls, a professional, knowledgable firm should be employed. That said the bottom line as always comes down to cost versus return and we feel that the service provided to us is most definitely worthwhile.Jennie Dodd ( Marketing manager)
