  Experience Based Rewards are the New Consumer Sales Promotion
 
Experience Based Rewards are the New Consumer Sales Promotion     
There is a hot new trend in the retail sales promotions, advertising program space, which is called “Experiential Rewards” which taps into the emotional subconsciousness of the consumer and rewards them with an experience rather than just offering coupons or discounts.

 What does this mean exactly?  Whole Foods Market, the organic grocery store chain is tapping into their health conscious, sophisticated customer lifestyle (organic food and cooking), and rather than just solely offering discount points on a rewards card program, they are giving them other choices like experienced based rewards such as gourmet cooking classes, that will help to differentiate them from their other supermarket competitors. Experiential reward loyalty programs can be personalized based on individual purchase behaviors and preferences.

Consumer sales promotions are a marketing technique used by brands for engaging customers with promotional offers that will entice them to make a purchase.

Using Video Content Marketing can Double Brand Engagement, Website Conversions Rates and ROI
 
Using Video Content Marketing can Double Brand Engagement, Website Conversions Rates and ROI
   
This is a guest post I wrote on a New York #videoproduction   company's site #17production  .   
A recent study conducted by eye view digital, a personalized video solutions provider shows that using video on landing pages can increase conversions by over 65%. Another recent case study was conducted by the research group Aberdeen, which polled over 1000 digital marketing companies worldwide. The data show that marketers using video see an average of a 4.8% conversion rate with video- which is almost double what the average is for websites that do not use video content (2.9% conversion.) You can check and download a copy of the Aberdeen Video ROI report in this blog.  

I want to thank +Amy Gesenhues for featuring it yesterdays +Marketing Land's Daily Round-Up  .   http://marketingland.com/marketing-day-mobile-ads-report-polyvore-promoted-ads-105325
http://17production.com/services/video-increases-engagement-website-conversions/                Also want to thank +Ronnie Bincer for always pushing what is possible with video and #youtube   #videomarketing  
Use video to increase website conversions, brand engagement, recognition, trust. New York 17 Production creates commercials, corporate promo's, live event videos.

Wearable Device Software App Development – Wearable Computing Android / Iphone
 
Wearable Device Software App Development – Wearable Computing Android / Iphone   

Here is +FS Studio 's latest blog post about wearable device technologies.  
+Google  and other major smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung (who already beat Google in launching their wearable sdk) are making cool wearable computing devices. As an example Google is launching in early summer the Android body wear software development kit (SDK) and the latest application programming interfaces (API) versions.
Some of the cool new features include support voice commands, display data from sensors, the ability to create custom card layouts, and the ability to sync data between wearables and smart phones. Smart watches allow Google the ability to capture an entirely new layer of metadata, important for #semanticsearch   and Google Now, with which the smart watch will be closely integrated.  

A special thanks to +David Amerland who gave us some inspiration into this post.
