Making Sense Of Social Media Social media can be a bit daunting if you don't take a moment to make sense of it all. Each week there are more companies being funded and more mergers and acquisitions taking place as companies attempt to make sense of it all, but sometimes you want them to (quoting the Talking Heads) "Stop Making Sense" and just help us understand what's going on here. To understand the landscape you need to break social media down into its elemental pieces. As I can see it, social media as a blanket term is the one category that overlaps the most with other categories in emerging media, further making it difficult to sort through.   Click for details...

More Data in Support of Streaming Video
Google and AOL teamed up to commission a survey from TNS Media Intelligence, that shows favorable user and advertiser metrics for online video.   This is important to understand because it demonstrates the adoption and expectation of online video for people who are looking for more information about an advertiser's products and services. The trend is steadily moving more and more in favor of online video to help a business separate and differentiate themselves from their competitors in their marketplace. A few high-level data points are:   75% of users watch more online video than they did one year ago, and 52% expect to watch more over the next year. 78% feel online video ads offer as much or more capability than television to learn about an advertiser. 63% say they prefer video advertising in order to keep content free. The survey also measured response rates from online video, coming up with numbers similar to those in TKG's User View (results in past post).  Specifically 64% of the TNS study respondents claimed taking action after viewing online video. 44% went to a Web site, 33% to a search engine, 22% to a physical store, and 21% discussed with friends). This supports something we've said many times... online video combines the traditional strengths of video advertising (entertaining, informative, ability to elicit emotional response), with the direct response capabilities of the internet.   Copyright - The Kelsey group.

Price Trumps Everything For Online Shoppers
WITH UNCERTAINTIES ABOUT THE ECONOMY creeping into more and more holiday purchase decisions, a new survey of online shoppers finds that price trumps all. "Because newer online retailers can focus on market share and revenues and not profitability, they are an emerging threat for brick-and-mortar retailers," said Jason Meugniot, Guidance president and CEO. ", for example, can give customers $5 for the privilege of shipping to them overnight.
