Will Google be your new credit card?

by Mike Moran

Mastercard and VISA certainly hope not, but Larry Page wants to be in your wallet. Well, not exactly--he wants to replace your wallet. Last month, when I talked about Google's new strategy--we do everything--I mentioned that Google is working hard to unseat PayPal, the online payments leader, but I think that I undersold Google's ambitions.

Forget the Sale. Focus on the Customer

by Stoney deGeyter

There are a lot of phases to the buying cycle. Searchers begin with a thought and then start researching answers via their favorite search engine. As they learn more about their query, they move into shopping and buying modes that hopefully lead them to a satisfied purchase.

Does your marketing have "readability"?

by Mike Moran

I don't know a lot about robotics, but I have read a few articles recently about the biggest problem that robot manufacturer have in entering the home. They need the robots to behave differently so that people know how to interact with robots. For example, if a robot needs to open a door, it moves to the door and then must scan the door to locate the doorknob, identify the kind of doorknob, and then begin moving its robotic arm to open the door. Sometimes it takes a little time to do all these things before starting to move its arm, which to a person looks like it is frozen. But when designers began having the robot move its head up and down while scanning, people realized what it was doing. Having robots signal what they are doing to watching people is called "readability," and it is important for your marketing as well.

How to Have a Lifetime of Happiness on Your Website

by Mike Fleming

You need to drastically rethink what it means to use data on the web. There is a lot of data, but there are fundamental barriers to making intelligent decisions. Clickstream data is great at the what, but not at the why. It's important to know what happened, but it is even more critical to know why people do the things they do on your site. And the what else, which is perhaps the most under appreciated data on the web...
