Description:

This week Ciaran talks with Joshua March, the founder and CEO of Conversocial, a leading social customer service solution used by hundreds of the world’s biggest brands to deliver enterprise-scale customer service through social media and mobile messaging platforms.

A renowned expert in social media and customer service, Joshua has been featured on Bloomberg, CNBC, Fox Business, and the BBC. We discuss Joshua's soon to be released book called "Message Me. The Future of Customer Service in the Era of Social Messaging and Artificial Intelligence" As the digital landscape rapidly changes beyond recognition, what does the future of customer care have in store? As an executive, what do you need to be doing today to ensure you're ready for tomorrow? Message Me is an incredible read and we really enjoyed reviewing it. Joshua explores the concept of effort in service and the growth of messaging as a service channel which delivers on the customers demand for instant communication without the hassle factor.

We discuss the role of Bots and AI in providing customer service and discuss how these new and developing technologies will impact on the future. Gartner predicts that, by 2019, requests for customer support through consumer messaging apps will exceed requests for customer support through public social media, and Messenger customer chat directly reflects this trend, offering an invaluable resource for brands catering to the next generation of consumers. Is your brand on board with this development? Listen in to this week's episode and discover a new, exciting and very scaleable vision of the future for your brand's customer service efforts.

2. Get To Know Your Visitors Better
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 26.96Mb)

Description:

Ciaran talks to Joe Cotellese an experienced digital marketer and founder of the social media tool Sharey. Ciaran explores Joe’s experience in learning more about customers and uncovers how Joe came to better understand quantitative and qualitative data working in the apparel industry while measuring up customers in their underwear. We also explore what Joe learned about marketing personas as a result of failing a Ninja aptitude test.

Joe introduces us to the tool he has developed to leverage more from curating content on social channels. We think Sharey gives its users an interesting angle for sharing curated social content to your social audiences. It follows in the steps of a variety of tools and services like Flipboard and Pocket and even Google Search that curate content from third-party sources. The tool allows you to place curated content into a distraction-free environment that you can add your own call to action on and share via social channels.

5. CIM Digital Summit Special 2017: Gimmicks Vs Reality
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 22.94Mb)

Description:

Daniel talks us through the reality behind some of the latest technologies grabbing the headlines in marketing circles and at conferences. It's always worth taking a look at gimmicks vs reality in digital marketing so you can gain a deeper insight into what is happening in between the headline-grabbing stories that are circulating. Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are often confused as the same thing, but actually, they refer to something much more straightforward than the Hollywood future vision of artificial intelligence that circulates in the movie story world. Daniel walks us through what these labels currently represent and why Machine learning is a much better description of the technologies currently being bought into play. We also explore some of interesting and also, sometimes dubious uses of this technology. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Virtual reality and augmented reality are another two technologies that are often lumped together and used interchangeably but again there is a clear distinction between the two technologies. Yet to be used in widespread marketing use, these techniques are starting to take off in the gaming world. Daniel explores some of the issues with the technology behind these technologies and looks to some of the implications that marketers need to start thinking about. These technologies look set to become mainstream with Augmented Reality leading the charge as operating systems begin supporting the development of the tech. Daniel talks through some examples of current platforms which we should look at in order to start thinking how we might make use of them in our marketing. QR codes Ciaran is a long time fan of the QR code which failed to take off as we all hoped they might. Ciaran explores some of the reasons why they failed and got such a bad reputation as well as some of the ways that some brands got them to work well. He lives in hope that one day the technology will come back, and who knows. Maybe it will.

7. Build Faster Websites
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 28.63Mb)

Description:

Ciaran interviews Jon Henshaw, SEO expert and co-founder of Raven Tools. In this episode, we discuss AMP and How to make your website faster without needing to make use of AMP.

What Is AMP?

AMP ( which stands for Accelerated Mobile pages) is a Google-backed project with the aim of speeding up the delivery of content through the use of stripped-down code known as AMP HTML. The idea behind the project was to make it easy for publishers to create mobile-friendly content once and have it load instantly everywhere.

It is proven that faster sites get a placement advantage in the Mobile Search engine results pages on Google and other Search engines. With mobile traffic now over half of the traffic most sites get it makes sense to improve the overall user experience of mobile device uses.  So AMP Sounds like a great solution, right?

Amp Issues

Jon shares some of the ways that the AMP user experience is failing to provide the improved user experience of publishers online content that was the project's original vision. Jon explains convincingly why he believes AMP is broken but if that is the case what is the alternative? Can you get the benefits of a fast site without resorting to AMP?

Jon argues you absolutely can if you follow his 5 top tips for making your site fast. It’s a compelling argument and one we hope will inspire you to consider some of these AMP free website building options for improving your site and results.

Why is AMP Controversial?

Heralded as an open source project, Google has been championing AMP as the go-to easy solution to make your site faster for mobile users, providing a documented algorithmic boost to search engine results for sites that are making use of AMP. As you will learn from this interview, AMP is not without criticism online, and Jon is not the only one warning of some of the formats drawbacks. You can read more about some of the current criticisms of the AMP platform here.

9. Test Everything
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 10.72Mb)

Description:

Inspired by a podcast listener, Ciaran and Daniel explore the importance of testing everything in your Digital Marketing. We discuss both A/ B testing and Muti variate testing. If you start from the position that “You know nothing” it puts you in a good position to gain insights by testing and validating different variations of what you are doing. This technique can be incredibly insightful and because it doesn’t work on assumptions that can be wrong can very often surprise you. We also explore the new tool in the Google Suite for testing out different ideas and structures within your website, introducing you to Google Optimize.Listen to learn more about testing out your hypothesis and learning from the data that results.

We also speak to Digital Marketing Podcast Listener Kirtiman Kohli from India, who shares with us the insights he gained by employing Multivariate testing on his Facebook campaigns to quickly identify the best Ad headlines, and images for his content campaigns using https://adespresso.com to create all the variants. The technique drove 5x increase in the success of the campaigns by quickly identifying the best advert content combinations from hundreds of different variations. If you are interested in scaling up the reach of your Facebook campaigns without exponentially growing your budget to achieve this, Kirtiman’s experience and key learnings will be very insightful.

10. Is Your Ad Experience Good Enough For Your Customers?
http://feedproxy.google.com/~r... download (audio/mpeg, 33.13Mb)

Description:

Daniel and Ciaran explore the importance of taking a good look at the experience your customers have of your brand or organisation when they experience your advertising online.  What is it like to be on the receiving end of your brand advertising campaign?

In this episode, we explore some issues around online advertising tech and the user experience of Ads.

Banner advertising, in particular, has had a bit of a reputation of being forced upon users.  Retargeting was supposed to help this but is often abused by marketers ( or their agencies) leading to a less than positive experience.

Daniel discusses programmatic advertising and some of the pitfalls of the technology. If you are using it, do you understand how it is impacting on your customer experience of your brand?

We also discuss the IAB’s self-regulatory initiative for online advertising. Is this the answer to ensuring consumers are not annoyed by over persistent online advertising?

For a  long time now the Ad blocker debate has been raging between users who want to take control back of their online experience and Advertisers who want to ensure their all valuable content is paid for and monetised. Are micro payments the solution?

Over the last few months, we have noticed some interesting moves from Google who have taken some steps to try and encourage advertisers to re look at the advert experience and take action to improve it. For a long time now they have promoted a good match between users to search intent and the advertising displayed in search engine results through their innovative Ad quality score. Could we be seeing Google applying the same approach to encourage a win win advertising approach in display advertising with changes recently made on their Ad network and within Google Search Console reports? Is this real evidence that Ad experience will influence your Organic Search engine positions in the future? All of this and more is under discussion in this week’s episode.

All businesses find it challenging to plan for the unknown.
