New term about to be coined. SmartCar

Since part of my job is giving talks about where technology is taking society I love these concepts.

This is a blend of smartphone, Siri-like technology, and a yet to be developed AI. A touchable holographic screen is something I have seen in practice and the technology is getting there quickly.

All it needs are wings and we will finally be in "the future" :)

E-Commerce has changed the game.

I'm amazed it took major retailers this long to realize their model is flawed. As our lives become busier and our wallets shrink people will research and shop online even more.

At our fingertips is almost any product available in a brick and mortar store. We can find reviews, quickly ask our friends via social media, and compare prices within minutes. If we do enter a traditional store chances are many shoppers have already done all that. Often they know more than the sales staff about a product or service.

Impulse shopping is fading. Surgical shopping is the new King. The web is his Kingdom.

"Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

As marketers we often spend too much time doing what everyone else is doing. We provide a client with the right message at the right audience. We measure data to make sure things are working. It's all so impersonal. It needs to change.

In comes Elizabeth Laird. She gives hugs to hero's.

With no budget, no concern for ROI, Impressions, or Click Through Rates she adds a little joy to the world. We can do the same.

Marketers and small business owners should take a page out of her book. When was the last time you gave your customer or client a "hug" just for doing what they do?
