Brian Solis Explores “Persuasive Design” In Marketing Tech News Article on Social Media Addiction

In a Marketing Tech News piece by James Bourne on social media addiction and privacy issues, Solis mentions “persuasive design” as a contributing factor in our addiction – which, the piece claims, endures despite the growing personal privacy concerns. In the “Analysis” section, the author mentions that “the gap remains between fears and actually translating it to reduced usage. He uses a quote that Solis gave to the publication in May about persuasive design: “The compulsion to endlessly scroll, to…

Brian Solis Discusses The Negative Impact Social Networks Have On Creativity at ProXXIma 2019

In a Portuguese language article by Salvador Strano about Solis’ appearance at ProXXIma 2019, he is quoted as saying “social networks have taken our creativity.” The piece talks about Solis’ journey of discovery that led to writing Lifescale and discusses his conclusion that yes, social networks influence the human brain – and not positively. Solis is quoted: “What was taken away from us was the ability to be creative the way we were. Living life on a screen makes it…

I was supposed to write about Apple’s new show ‘Planet of the Apps,’ Instead, I wrote about @GaryVee

I was supposed to write about Apple’s new show ‘Planet of the Apps,’ Instead, I wrote about @GaryVee

This post started as a review of the new show on Apple Music, “Planet of the Apps.” I realized the world didn’t need another announcement or review of the show. What I will say is this, any show that aims to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to life and also transform them into budding businesses that change the world is important. The show features Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, will.i.am and Gary Vaynerchuk. I’ve had the privilege of working with this crew (except…

The Key to Creativity and Innovation is Empathy

The Key to Creativity and Innovation is Empathy

Growing up in Los Angeles and living in Silicon Valley for 20-plus years has plugged me into a unique network of creativity and innovation. Although many would say that I technically live in a bubble, I have practiced the art of participation and observation to earn a balanced perspective when it comes to ideation and design. While I am surrounded by some of the most amazing  minds, I am also inspired by those shaping innovation hubs. If it’s one thing I’ve learned,…

Experiences Become Brands and Great Brands Become Experiences

Experiences Become Brands and Great Brands Become Experiences

These days, it seems that I travel to events overseas more than in the United States. While many companies around the world believe they are behind U.S. companies, I can say that from first hand experience, any company pursuing the future of customer experience, innovation, and brand is ahead of the game…regardless of where it’s based. When I receive an invitation to present, it exemplifies, at least to me, that those attending the event are keen on learning about how to…

5 Questions Defining the State and Future of Digital Transformation

5 Questions Defining the State and Future of Digital Transformation

  I recently presented at event in San Diego. My goal in doing so was to help attendees reframe the problems they were trying to solve and introduce new opportunities that would help them go back to work and contribute to meaningful change. I remember it being a beautiful day. The crowd was electric and more than open to new ideas. When I was done presenting, I playfully threw out that I would be outside on the patio (overlooking the San Diego Harbor)…

The 5 Pillars of New Media Strategy: There is no box!

The 5 Pillars of New Media Strategy: There is no box!

I often share my thoughts to help global brands and enterprise organizations. But with this article, I would like to talk to the broader group of business professionals without reference to the size and shape of your company. Here and in many other media outlets, networks, and blogs around the web, social media is one of the most prevalent subjects in business today. While advice is everywhere, advice is becoming a commodity. Insight however, is precious. Let’s take this time…

Social Media News Releases

Yesterday, Todd Defren ran a short, but sweet, post to help PR pros “stop and think” in order to develop more successful SMPRs . Democratize “Access” Ensure “Accuracy” Embrace “Context” Build “Community” Be “Findable” I also added an idea or two, and in my discussion with Tom Foremski , the list is far from complete, but it is off to a great start…so stay tuned for updates. Write “intelligently” “Eliminate” hyperbole Be “informed” “leave” the spin to the reporter As…

September Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup

Your host, Vincent Lauria Last night’s Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup was definitely the biggest yet. Vincent “Vinnie” Lauria again took center stage to welcome guests, which included VCs, engineers, programmers, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and plenty of CEOs. The evening’s lineup included four up-and-coming Web startups, some more well known than others (and maybe one that really isn’t a startup per se). And interestingly enough, all seem to have found their niche for creating a loyal customer-base. For those of you too…
