Posted by James Trumbly on June 3rd, 2013 at 8:00 am

Do you host webinars for your business? Ever found yourself wondering why your attendance is low or whether you could do a better job with your presentations? Webinars are a great way to get your message out to the right audience, promote interaction with customers, create buzz about your business or product, and increase sales. With just a little finesse, you can make your online events work even harder for your business.
Choosing the Right Topic
Of course you need the right topic to get your webinar off the ground, something that will provide lasting value to attendees and generate interest. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Frequently asked questions—Are there questions about your product or service that you receive on a regular basis? Compile those questions and build a webinar around them.
Introducing a new product—New products often benefit from a little hype, especially if it’s a departure from the kind of things you’ve done before. Use the webinar to talk about benefits, uses, and options for the new product.
How-tos—How to implement new software in your IT department, how to access online capabilities for an insurance company, how to write a will, how to operate an exercise machine—no matter what industry... Read more

Q&A: Enter: Social + Mobile + Local + Commerce

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 22nd, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Move over SoLoMo - SoLoMoCo is here.
In part five of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, we move beyond mere Social + Local + Mobile to Social + Local + Mobile + Commerce, the ability to not just connect with consumers via the mobile channel based on where they are, but also to enable transactions based on that context.
This time out, you'll get some outstanding insights from Jonathan Becher, CMO for softare giant SAP, and Dorrian Porter, CEO of longtime GEN WOW sponsor Mozes.
At the heart of the conversation: A new report from ABI Research that by 2017, one quarter of all online sales will come through mobile. Retailers can choose to do what they can to stem this tide, or capitalize on it in powerful ways through the power of SoLoMoCo.

Q&A: Foursquare's New 'Promoted Updates' & The Race to Make Location Click (Roundtable Pt 4)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 20th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Is Foursquare upping its game?
Foursquare has always been at the forefront of location-based mobile marketing, and it is always at the vanguard of what's next in this nascent arena. (Listen to my Q&A with Foursquare Co-Founder Dennis Crowley on the eve of the launch of Foursquare to get a sense of his early vision for the service.)
But as innovative as it is, even Foursquare is still finding its footing in what's possible and what's compelling for both marketers and consumers when it comes to SoLoMo.
In recent weeks, Foursquare has launched Promoted Updates, an advertising product that gives merchants a way to reach people who are near their stores, based on location and interest as indicated in past check-ins and other data.
In part four of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, GEN WOW sponsor and Mozes CEO Dorrian Porter, SAP CMO Jonathan Becher and Ignited LA VP/CD Jordan Atlas weigh in on this new feature and some of the current challenges in making location a vital part of the SoLoMo equation.

Social + Mobile + Local & The Facebook Fallout (Roundtable Pt 3)

Posted by Rick Mathieson on August 16th, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Will Facebook be able to save some face in light of its apparent free fall?
In part three of our August Mobile Marketing Roundtable, Jordan Atlas, VP/Creative Director for Ignited LA joins our conversation with Jonathan Becher, CMO of software giant SAP (middle image) and Dorrian Porter, CEO of longtime GEN WOW sponsor Mozes (bottom).
As I open up questions to the group, we get a perspective on Facebook's challenges in mobile. In recent days, key mobile marketing execs have left the company, news hit that 83 million Facebook accounts may be fake, and the stock has been hammered in the runnup to the end of its first lock-up period.
Can Facebook effectively monetize mobile. And if so, what models might it employ?
Our panelists - a Fortune 100 chief marketing officer, an award-winning ad industry creative director and the CEO of one of the most innovative mobile marketing solution providers weigh in on this very hot topic.
