Global Web Users: A Work in Progress

25 Aug

Recently, the International Communication Union, a UN agency conducted research on Web usage around the globe. Click here for a PDF of the highlights of its 2016 report based on this research.

Statista has devised an interesting chart from the ICU data. [See below.] And its Felix Richter  offered these insights:

“25 years ago, August 23, 1991, a British computer scientist made the World Wide Web available to the public. Tim Berners-Lee, who was then working at CERN, could not have imagined the impact his actions would have on the world over the next two-and-a half decades. Honoring this milestone in the history of the Internet, August 23 has become known as Internaut Day.”

“However, even 25 years after what some call its inception, the World Wide Web is not nearly as universally available as its name suggests. According to the latest estimates by the International Communication Union, a UN agency specializing in information and communication technologies, only 47 in 100 world citizens use the internet these days. While Internet access in regions such as North America and Europe has become a commodity not unlike electricity and running water, people in less-developed regions often still lack access to what has arguably become the most important source of information of our times.”

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.”

Lady Gaga’s New Social Media Effort

15 Sep

To her fans, Lady Gaga is a great performer with a unique and popular style. To her critics, Lady Gaga is viewed as loud and eccentric, at best. But, what is frequently overlooked is how savvy a businesswoman that Lady Gaga is. She is often cutting edge in the way her performances are staged, and she knows how to be regularly followed by the media.

Now Lady Gaga’s inventiveness is expanding more into the social media app sphere. As Nick Ayala reports for JWT Intelligence: “Last week on her social site, LittleMonsters.com, Lady Gaga announced that her next album, ARTPOP, will be available as an app in addition to the physical and digital versions. Set to be released in spring 2013, the ARTPOP app will feature ‘chats, films for every song, extra music, content, gaga inspired games, fashion updates, magazines’ and the promise of additional updates to come.”
