Two Questions for Branding in the Web 2.0 World: Is It Up? Is It Fast?

Keeping your brand alive and well on the Web isn't as easy as it looks. There are few things as important as your reputation, and in the Web 2.0 economy, your reputation is increasingly tied to your web presence. So keeping the website up, available, and responding quickly is critical not only for success, but also for survival. If you think about it, a website's reputation on the Internet can be boiled down to two questions: ‘Is it up?' and ‘Is it fast?' Sure, some websites just make it look easy. Take Google, which is always up and always blazing fast. When was the last time you connected to the Internet, typed in google.com, and nothing came up? While you have the triumph of Google on one side of the coin, you have other sites that are cautionary tales. These days, major site outages make the news. Amazon.com had problems on June 6 of this year, and that outage ... (more)

Brand "Environment?" What's That?

Have you heard of the term “brand environment?”  Wondering what it means? It’s all the seemingly “little things” that comprise the environment around you.  Your brand environment includes everything from the carpeting in your office to your clothing, your techno-gadgets, and even where you might choose to host a dinner for your clients.  Each and every decision you make that might give others a “clue” about who you are and what you’re like equals your brand environment. As many of you may have already figured out I live in Pittsburgh, PA – the upcoming host to this year’s G-20 summit, attracting political leaders that comprise 85% of the world’s economy.  The White House announced its venue locations for various aspects of the Summit.  The venues chosen by the White House are “on brand” for Barack and Michelle Obama since they tie into their values, initiatives and...

Big Data | Thinking Outside the Firewall

A few months back, Gartner placed big data at the peak of its hype cycle for cloud computing, meaning most big data products are solutions looking for a problem. I always find this bad entrepreneurial habit to be one of the most frustrating of our industry. Having recently joined Meltwater as head of marketing and product (BTW Meltwater is hiring marketing and product managers!), I think a lot about big data and how to unleash it’s value to solve important business problems, because that is our business. How does big data go from “so what” to “must have”? The Big Data Challenge Big data is a by-product of the Internet and the ever increasing power of computers. Kind of like petroleum sludge. We know there must be great value buried within this vast, raw resource, but the challenge lies in figuring out how to turn it into something useful like plastic, or the other th... (more)
