Some Web Technology Thought Starters

  1. 1. Some Web Technology Thought Starters How We Can Apply Current Web Trends To Our Clients’ Marketing Programs Diana Schwartz, VP, Chief Technology Officer April 30, 2007
  2. 2. Who’s On the Call <ul><li>Chris Kelly – LA </li></ul><ul><li>Jeff Jarrett – CHI </li></ul><ul><li>Suz Murphy – CHI </li></ul><ul><li>Steven Howard – ATL </li></ul><ul><li>Steve Carbone – NY </li></ul><ul><li>Karen Heller – attending in Holly Pavlika’s place </li></ul><ul><li>Mike Krzyston – CHI/MDS </li></ul><ul><li>Marty Laiks – NY </li></ul><ul><li>Chris Abelt – NY </li></ul><ul><li>Bonny Block – ATL </li></ul><ul><li>Kelly Toscano – LA </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why We’re Here
  4. 4. What’s Going On? <ul><ul><li>In 2006, the big Internet news was ''Web 2.0'', participatory Web sites, like YouTube, MySpace, Wikipedia, Digg and Flickr, which relied on material supplied by the audience itself. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Now the Web is changing from being a method of publication to being a global conversation . </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. Global Conversations - Collaborative Creativity <ul><ul><li>Today the most powerful instances of collaboration are not done by people consciously working with each other . The whole Web 2.0 phenomenon is made possible by the extraordinary collection of materials and intelligence created by millions of individuals acting independently . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s not just simply social networking on the web, it’s content development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wikipedia, Open Source, consumer-driven innovation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Passionate amateurs, using new tools, are creating new products and paradigms on the web. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>So what does this mean to G2 Direct & Digital? Let’s look at some possibilities for our clients. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 8. Tweets
  7. 9. Twittervision - http://twittervision.com/ <ul><ul><li>Twitter is free communications service </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Users send and receive short messages, called “tweets” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Users can use Twitter’s web site, instant messaging software or cell phone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Viral marketing potential - Unlike most text messages, tweets are routed among networks of friends. Strangers, called “followers,” can also choose to receive the tweets of people they find interesting. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tweets are published on a “public timeline” on Twitter’s home page and mapped against Google Maps on twittervision.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Huge potential for word of mouth marketing - At least one politician has tuned into the service. John Edwards, has 2,001 followers and 2,082 friends, and recently twittered that his presidential campaign would be “carbon neutral.” </li></ul></ul>
  8. 13. Twittervision - http://twittervision.com/ <ul><ul><li>You could launch a global marketing campaign with links to landing pages containing tracking codes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You could set up a network of “followers” to fan the marketing message out to the world and send automated responses to the Twitter web site and “follower’s” instant message or cell phone numbers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Huge potential for word of mouth marketing </li></ul></ul>
  9. 14. 60% of internet bandwidth is currently video, predicted to go to 90% in a few years.

  11. 17. Web traffic spikes during TV prime time
  12. 18. Linking Web Site Content to TV <ul><ul><li>Television networks are slowly learning how to use the Internet to their advantage. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New data from Nielsen/NetRatings shows that television web sites see a spike in usage during prime time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>During the month of March, 40% of the time spent on NBC.com was spent between the hours of 8pm and 11pm EST. ABC and Fox had 30% of the time spent at ABC.com and 26% at Fox.com occurring during prime time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Similarly, web sites aimed at kids get a boost between 5pm and 8pm daily, as kids log into reference sites for help with their homework or social networking sites to avoid doing homework. Dictionary.com saw its heaviest usage during that time slot, with 31% of its total time spent during that time period. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Interactive television shows are also driving changes in usage patterns. The advent of online voting for contestants on shows such as “Dancing with the Stars” encourages the simultaneous consumption of TV and Web content . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Advertisers can also take advantage of the interplay between these two media, adding online promotions to their traditional 30 second television spots and updating web content each MINUTE . </li></ul></ul>

  15. 27. We Should Be Making Smarter Design Recommendations to Our Clients
  16. 29. Some of Our Recomendations Should Be… <ul><ul><li>Do not require immediate registration - ask for name and email address at a minimum, but do not require it until later </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not user long URLS. Users now use http://tinyurl.com/ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Turn this URL: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?ovi=1&mqma </li></ul></ul><ul><li>p.x=300&mqmap.y=75&mapdata=%252bKZmeiIh6N%252bI </li></ul><ul><li>gpXRP3bylMaN0O4z8OOUkZWYe7NRH6ldDN96YFTIUmSH3Q6 </li></ul><ul><li>OzE5XVqcuc5zb%252fY5wy1MZwTnT2pu%252bNMjOjsHjvN </li></ul><ul><li>lygTRMzqazPStrN%252f1YzA0oWEWLwkHdhVHeG9sG6cMrf </li></ul><ul><li>XNJKHY6fML4o6Nb0SeQm75ET9jAjKelrmqBCNta%252bsKC </li></ul><ul><li>9n8jslz%252fo188N4g3BvAJYuzx8J8r%252f1fPFWkPYg% </li></ul><ul><li>252bT9Su5KoQ9YpNSj%252bmo0h0aEK%252bofj3f6vCP </li></ul><ul><li>into this tinyURL: </li></ul><ul><li>http://tinyurl.com/6 </li></ul>
  17. 30. Some of Our Recomendations Should Be… <ul><ul><li>URLs matter - it’s good to have an easy naming convention for URLs. MySpace creates easy-to-remember URLs like http://www.myspace.com/dianaschwartz or http://www.linkedin.com/in/dianasch . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Search Box - All web sites must allow users to SEARCH. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Add easy Bookmarking - Digg, del.icio.us, and Fark bookmarks. When a web site hits the front page of Digg, page views typically increase by a factor of 6 or 7 times. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Contact Us pages should really allow the users to Contact the company, not just by email but by telephone. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sites MUST have RSS feeds, newsletters or email lists to join. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Require the re-typing of email addresses AND… </li></ul></ul>

  19. 32. Some of Our Recomendations Should Be… <ul><ul><li>Use Snapshots - they’re free! Snap.com </li></ul></ul>
