Report from Social Media Marketing World

The More Clients Blog

I’ve been at the humungous business conference, Social Media Marketing World since Sunday.

With close to 2 billion websites, 32 million YouTube channels, and untold gazillions on the various social media platforms, it’s more crowded than ever before – and it’s only going to get worse.

Media out of balance

Seth Godin Blog

Successful media (let's define 'successful' as media that can make a difference, make a connection and possibly make a living) has four elements: Attention. Enrollment. Trust and. Permission. Too often, particularly online, people just worry about the first one. It's a race to go viral, to go low, to make a bunch of noise. The quick hit, the shortcut, the inflammation. But attention is insufficient. Enrollment means that your audience wants to go where you're going.

Media's Data-Driven Future


In this Thought Leader interview, one of the world's premier voices on digital technology in media and entertainment looks ahead to the decline of midsized companies, the evolution of data-driven decision making (and the general lack of skill at it), and the prospect of many jobs being lost to automation, except for the very top creative tier "Today is the slowest rate of technological change you will ever experience in your lifetime," says Shelly Palmer.

Seth Godin Blog

In every era, traditional media channels will diminish, dismiss and ignore the new ones. New media tends to be adopted by amateurs first. But professional content for the masses is precisely what old media stands for. As new media gains traction, the old media doubles down on what they believe to be their value, because they no longer have a monopoly on attention. They do this at the very same time that they are supplanted by the new ones.

Tom Spencer

This is a guest post from Archie Ward , a business consultant and social media strategist.

Where will the media take us next?

Seth Godin Blog

Since the first story was carved on a rock, media pundits have explained that they have simply given people what they want, reporting the best they can on what’s happening. In fact, it’s becoming ever more clear that the attention-seeking, profit-driven media industrial complex drives our culture even more than it reports on it. Increase that exponentially by adding in the peer-to-peer reality show that is social media, and you can see what’s happening.

Seth Godin Blog

There weren’t many good places to run ads, so the media companies had the power. Now, thanks to algorithmic media buying and the rise of digital, the media company sometimes has no idea who is even placing the ad, never mind how it works or what it’s for. When a media company does try to establish standards, the algorithms simply go somewhere else. For a very long time, major magazines and TV networks were very strict about the ads that they would run.
