    • RESPEK
    • THE
    … Now Ya Know
    • Obviously through an exhaustive variety of advertising options allowing you to target anyone, anytime, online or offline.
    • WRONG!
    • The lowly text ad.
    97% of Google's revenue comes from these text ads.
  • 16. How Does It All Work?
    • Google Adwords: advertising program started in 2002.
    • 3-Minute Summary
  • 17. It’s Not About the Format.
    • Text ads are succinct and efficient, but Google isn’t the first to recognize that. Newspapers have known it (and clung to it) for a century.
    • Google perfected the delivery of a message at the moment you want to hear it.
    • “ Perfected” – not invented. They stole it from Yahoo!
  • 18. 2007 FLASHBACK!
    • “ Google plans to invade your space. “
    • Print, radio, TV – it’s coming after everyone.
    • Google wants to own advertising. Google wants to be the ad agency to the world."
  • 19. A lot has happened since then…
  • 20. 2007: Google Print
  • 21. 2009: Google Print
    • RIP, Google Print
  • 22. 2007: Google on the Radio
    • Four years ago, Google purchased dMarc Broadcasting. dMarc connected advertisers directly to radio stations through its automated advertising platform.
    • Google integrated dMarc into Adwords and rolled out...
  • 23. 2007: Google Radio Ads
  • 24. 2009: Google Radio Ads RIP, Google Radio
  • 25. 2007: Google TV Ads
    • Google knows TV isn’t hurting nearly as bad as radio and newspapers. Splintered, but not abandoned.
    • Google thinks TV still has a bright future, and that newspapers and radio don’t.
  • 27. LONG STORY SHORT, cont.
    • GOOD NEWS: Google doesn’t want its fingers in your pie anymore.
    • BAD NEWS: That may not actually be good news.
  • 28. WHAT NOW, THEN?
    • 2009, the message is refined:
    • Google wants to own communication.
    • It wants to be wherever your attention is. It knows that you aren’t necessarily wed to traditional ad-carrying media.
  • 29. Google: Next-Gen Social Media?
    • If “social media” is engaging customers where they’re already spending their time…
    • … .then Google has big plans for you.
  • 30. The Anna Nicole Smith strategy
    • If you're showered with enough wonderful and expensive gifts, you'll jump into bed with your sugar daddy when the time comes to do so.
  • 31. Yyyyyeeeeeeeeeeahhhhhhh..........
    • Google wants to follow you around all day long.
  • 32. What do you do all day?
  • 33. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Actual Work-
    • Google Docs – Create, edit, store and download Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF documents online and free.
    • Cloud computing. Apps run & docs are stored somewhere else. Easy to store your files in one place. (Works for me!)
    • Chrome OS. Based on Linux. Easy integration of all Google services.
  • 34. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Actual Work-
    • Drives down cost. You don't have to pay $269 for MS Office if you don't want to. Computers themselves get cheaper with no MS license fee.
    • Eliminates headaches & simplifies computing (Less hard drive space, less memory, less processing power)
    • Bottom Line: Google wants your attention while you’re workign.
  • 35. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Email-
    • Gmail. Serves ads to emails.
    • POP mail access – consolidates all your email accounts. Also lets Google serve ads in front of emails that aren’t theirs!
    • Postini –antivirus/spam filtering. Message archiving.
    • Bottom line: While you're emailing, Google wants a piece of your attention.
  • 36. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Talk on your cell phone-
    • Google has Google Voice. Waitlist. FREE.
    • (Listen In, Taking Calls, Phone Routing, Conf Calling, Call Record)
    • Lots of extras you currently pay for – all free.
    • Bottom Line: Google wants to be a part of your phone conversations.
  • 37. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Use the Web-
    • Google Chrome
    • Web browser, fairly new. Known for blazing speed. Integration of all those Google features will be coming.
  • 38. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Photos-
    • (view/edit/share)
    • “ Picasa helps you organize, edit, and share your photos. It's free, and easy to use.”
  • 39. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Photos-
    • (view/edit/share)
    • Picasa
  • 40. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Videos-
  • 41. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Music- ????????????????????
    •   Why no music-player application?
    • Google is, for now, very friendly with Apple. (The enemy of my enemy (Microsoft) is my friend.)
    • Apple DOMINATES the online music business. Good place for Google to hang back right now.
  • 42. What would ya say ya do here?
    • -Facebook-
    • Google-Microsoft battle to invest. Google lost.
    • Google got Myspace instead.
    • Myspace = Detroit -- used to be a boomtown, now it's just scary and dying.
  • 43. FRIEND OR FOE?
    • Friend or Foe? Well, seems awfully friendly now, that's for sure. But you can be sure that this is not charity work on Google's part.
    • You don’t build (and/or buy) this kind of functionality for no good reason, just to be nice.
    • Google is not the government. (Obviously – everything runs smoothly and works well).
  • 44. An offer you can’t refuse?
    • You will be granted favors, but there will come a time to pay accepting advertising.
  • 45. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • Google Says:
    • “ Google is in the connection business. Google is in the business of connecting buyers & sellers.”
  • 46. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • “ Google is in the connection business. Google is in the business of connecting buyers & sellers.”
    • SELLERS: Advertisers BUYERS: Everyone else.
    • The sellers’ messages WILL be delivered.
  • 47. Google Just Getting Warmed Up?
    • Google is already a $155 billion company
    • Google advertising is targeted only two ways: search engine results and contextual website placements.
    • THESE ALONE have built the largest advertising company in the history of the world in five short years.
    • BUT... imagine how even those big revenue streams could spike if Google expands those targeting options and advertising avenues further.
  • 48. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • Theory Alert!
    • Email . My email is already scanned by Gmail (all of it, not just the Gmail). Could Google start letting marketers target ads to my email based on the things I talk about in my email, keywords that appear frequently, the types of URLs I forward along, etc.? (Doesn't have to be personally identifiable, just aggregate data).
  • 49. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • Theory Alert!
    • Phone. Google has voice recognition down as well as anyone (Try Goog411). All calls are recorded.
    • If you're using Google Voice, you've actually given them ALL YOUR PHONE NUMBERS.
    • So isn't it possible that the voice data could certainly be recorded, databased, made searchable and then made targetable by advertisers?
    • All of your voicemails are transcribed and sent directly to your inbox, so even if you don't answer, you're gonna get the message. 
  • 50. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • Theory Alert!
    • Browser : Ads can be built into the Chrome browser, served directly & continuously updated based on the sites you visit.
  • 51. What’s Up Google’s Sleeve?
    • Theory Alert!
    • Desktop : All computer brands do this with their crapplications. They just do it stupidly – expect Google to be smarter about it.
  • 52. Mixed Feelings?
  • 53. Mixed Feelings?
    • Consumer: Fearful
    • Advertiser: Hopeful
  • 54. We’re Frogs. Google is Boiling Us.
  • 55. We’re Frogs. Google is Boiling Us.
    • Google is sitting back and letting us love all the free stuff.
    • Little by little, we will have to start paying, one way or another, for all these services.
    • Google’s value proposition is as good as any: “Our products will make your life much easier and much cheaper, and we’ll give you your time back.”
  • 56. We’re Frogs. Google is Boiling Us.
    • All that’s left for you to decide is….
  • 57. How Much Anna Nicole is in you?
