How to Optimize Your Facebook Page for Mobile Facebook Nearby Users

A recent global update to Facebook’s Nearby mobile check-in made it possible for iOS and Android users to discover business information and reviews they may previously have asked a search engine.

Remember when Google+ pulled their existing local listings and paired them with Zagat reviews, in order to share social endorsements, maps and business info with people on the go, giving them an edge for local search?

Transitional Marketing and the Connected Interface

There is no first, second, or third screen; there are only screens. Regardless of their uniqueness in form factor or function, these connected screens are simply humanized interfaces allowing us to communicate with and experience a digitally optimized world.

While much has been made of defining the distinctions between the various connected interfaces, be they mobile devices, tablets, connected television, etc., what’s been lost in the debates over how best to utilize each distinctly is how best to address the radical shift in digital user experience expectations and screen agnosticism. How do we address this fundamental shift from a technology-centric marketing model to one of experience centricity?

Want to do Powerful Marketing via Mobile and Web? Here’s your target audience summed up in Three Magic Words: Short Attention Span.

Most people don’t read anymore. They skim. You already knew this. But are you applying this knowledge to your marketing efforts every day? Probably not.

If you really knock yourself out, you might add an image or a subheading.

Making The Best Out Of Your Mobile eCommerce Application

You would be a really bad player in this racy eCommerce arena if you had paid $200 for a Mobile eCommerce App for your brand and have ended with a crappy app which is worth hardly a $50. This mostly happens with eCommerce business owners who are not that tech savvy about the developmental technical of the Mobile Commerce Application, so the developer could easily get away with it. The most mistakes happen because of the ‘bad choice’ of Mobile Commerce Application developers that you hire to develop your app. In order to kick start your brand right in the Mobile eCommerce App arena, the checkbox indicating your technical knowledge about the mechanics should have a bold tick mark.

Mobility is Making Customer Service Smart

Some aspects of customer service are never going to change – anyone asking for assistance expects to be helped by someone who is knowledgeable, pleasant, presents the answer from the caller’s perspective, and is professional. There are other characteristics that callers prefer in their service provider, but they are not a core requirement. Most of us want to be helped by someone who seems interested and cares, as well as someone who “really gets it.” It’s not easy to do a good job of delivering customer service, and it’s only going to become more challenging as customer expectations become more demanding.

About the only thing our phones can’t do is transport us to another location. . . someday. .  . someday.

comScore put together a list of the top apps and I have to say, I was surprised by a few of them. Take a look.

What's the most important mobile marketing tactic?

Perhaps this doesn't sound like a headline that belongs in Search Engine Guide, but trust me, it is. I was at the Brandhackers Meetup  in New York City on a panel focusing on what marketers need to know about mobile marketing.
