Ever Think of Creating a Video Resume?

5 Nov

You know you are great. Your family knows you are great. Your friends know you are great. But how do you get potential employers to think you are great? How about presenting yourself in a way that is still used sparingly: a video resume clip?

We’re marketers. So think outside the box. [BTY: This does not replace the standard resume. It complements it.]

View Julie Marateck’s Vimeo video clip that is a “career narrative about my skills and awesomeness in less than 2 minutes.” Do not focus on the quality of the video or whether you would include things that Julie does. FOCUS ON THE CONCEPT OF A VIDEO RESUME.

Web Site Usability and B-to-B

20 Sep

B-to-B Web site visibility and analytics have not received the same attention as with B-to-C sites. However, it is equally important.

As Richard H. Levey writes for Multichannel Merchant: “The obvious difference between business-to-business and consumer Web sites is the immediacy of conversion. B-to-B sales cycles are usually much longer, and often incorporate live salespeople and multiple decision makers. For marketers, says Chris Hicken, vice-president of marketing at UserTesting.com, the key question is ‘Why aren’t people buying from me?’ And the key problem is that when prospects interact with a company through its Web site but don’t buy, the marketer can’t ask what went wrong — at least, not directly.”

Google to Display Its Knowledge Graph Carousel to Global Users

5 Sep

As Drew Olanoff puts it: “Google’s Knowledge Graph has become a handy tool when you’re searching for things that interest you. There are a few reasons why it’s a handy feature, but most of all it provides context to what you’re searching for.”

Here’s how Google describes it: “Last month, we showed how you can now get answers to your questions with the help of the Knowledge Graph even when the best answer is not just a single person or thing, but a collection or list of items. When looking for [cedar point rides], you see a carousel of popular roller coasters at the amusement park, drawing on our Knowledge Graph and the collective intelligence of the Web. The feature was initially available in English on google.com, and we’re now taking our first steps to make it available more widely around the world.” The company is rolling out the carousel for “factual lists to English users on all Google domains across the world.”
