What Do We Do Every “Internet Minute”?

21 Jan

Our Internet activity keeps on increasing. So what do we do online most often?

As Tech Spartan puts it:

“The Internet is a wonderful thing, a thing of knowledge and power but also a thing of beauty and inspiration. We are all a part of the Internet in one way or another, whether that is via our E-mails or our social media accounts. But what do we all actually do on the Internet? It’s an interesting question which we here at Tech Spartan aim to answer in this infographic looking at what happens in an Internet minute, comparing last year (2013) to this year’s (2014) latest statistics. Did you know that there are now 11.6% more Internet users now than 1 whole year ago?”

What Are the Best Ways to Influence People?

20 Jan

Persuasion is a key skill for marketers to master — not manipulation but honesty-based persuasion.

As Emma Snider writes for HubSpot:

“To sell something, you have to convince a buyer that they not only want your offering, they need it. To be clear, I’m not talking about fooling them into buying a piece of junk. Oftentimes, prospects stand to benefit considerably from purchasing a new product or service.”

“Most salespeople swear by personal persuasion tactics that ‘just work.’ But what does science have to say about it? After researching scientific studies on tactics that prompt people to act in a certain way, the folks at Everreach put together the infographic shown below. Instead of deciding which method of persuasion to use based on gut feel, salespeople can now consult the science before proceeding. So before your next meeting or call, think: Which of these six tactics would hold the most sway over this particular buyer? Adjust your approach accordingly and you’ll have them signing on the dotted line in no time. It’s not magic; it’s science.”

 

 

Understanding How Google Search Works

14 Jan

Google Search is by far the world’s dominant search engine — with about two-thirds of all searches globally conducted with Google. According to Internet Live Stats: “Google now processes over 40,000 search queries every second on average (visualize them here), which translates to over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide.”

Yet, most users of Google Search — even those who pay Google to advertise — do not know how the Google search engine actually works. Do you? :-)

The animated infographic below from Quick Sprout provides some very good insights on Google’s search methodology.

Businessweek’s 85 Big Ideas over the Last 85 Years

28 Dec

In honor of its 85th anniversary, Bloomberg Businessweek recently published an interesting — and highly debatable — special issue titled “85 Years, 85 Ideas.” In this issue, Businessweek identified and ranked what it believes to be the most important ideas of the past past 85 years. These ideas range from the jet engine (1) to Apple (10) to DNA sequencing (25) to teenage consumers (50) to personal fitness (75) to the first widespread report using the term GDP (85).

As editor Josh Tyrangiel notes:

“This special issue chronicles the most disruptive ideas of the past 85 years, those entrepreneurial earthquakes whose tremors are still being felt. Disruption is a trendy word, but it’s used here without endorsement. To add a little tension, we’ve gone to the trouble of ranking these 85 disruptions and counting down to an overall world-changing champion. Comparing the importance of television to the impact of the Laffer Curve or Google (GOOG) to the AK-47 isn’t meant to yield scientific results. It’s meant to start some interesting arguments and remind us how dramatically business can change society.”

Note: Each idea on the list is accompanied by a Businessweek story; and there are also some video clips.
