MyCustomer: Brian Solis On How To Identify Your Moments Of Truth

MyCustomer: Brian Solis On How To Identify Your Moments Of Truth

“When we look at the customer journey, at present, we do so in a very linear way, and we distribute responsibility for that customer journey to different groups in charge of managing different aspects,” says Solis. “We give them budget, we give them personnel and we give them different metrics to try and optimise each component.

“But in a world where the customer journey is becoming increasingly non-linear, we can paint a much more accurate picture of how digital customers are interacting in different ‘moments’, be it before, during or after a transaction. We can ascertain how customers are making decisions, and we’re able to establish how to improve each of these moments of truth, and more importantly, how to connect the dots between them.”

The Accidental Narcissist And The Future Of [Connected] Customer Engagement

In assemblage, they tell the story of life well lived, or at least a life well curated. At the center of each of these experiences…

Twitter Shifts from Tech Startup to Media Network [Infographic]

The state of the relationship between Twitters and its developer community is nothing short of tumultuous. While there are significant merits on either side of the debate, what’s clear is that the Twitter of yore is no longer on a similar course for what will be the Twitter to come. It’s a sign of maturation and focus. It’s Twitter’s shift from tech startup and media darling to an aspiring new media empire. Ruffling feathers and clipping wings is an unfortunate…

We are the architects, the mediators, and the sherpas to a new era of…

The Human Cost of Social Connectivity

The Egyptian Revolution is a historical event for many reasons, not the least of which is the relentless dedication of human will to overcome tyranny against all odds. For those who study social networks, the revolution is also of course significant because of the role Facebook and Twitter played in the concentration of discontent and the orchestration of upheaval. For the purpose of this discussion, I would like to focus on how Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social networks continue…

What are you learning from social that you are applying to traditional?

Guest post by Chris Beck of 26DotTwo You allocate increasing amounts of budget, time and resources with social media to connect one on one. What about the other 90% of your budgets? What learnings can be cross-pollinated to increase your impact? The focus in social is on the 5th P (people); communities, niche groups, and influencers.
