Web 2.0 - Web 3.0 - The "Social Web"

Jeremiah Owyang, of the popular Web Strategy by Jeremiah blog (and now an analyst at Forrester), wrote a post several months ago entitled The Irrelevant Corporate Website. And in typical Owyang style, it is thought-provoking and has been translated into several languages, including Greek, Swedish, and German. As one of the owners of a digital marketing and communications company, I'd like to extend Owyang’s argument that the corporate Website is irrelevant, and present a framework that just might make it more relevant than ever. Let's consider the pages of a traditional corporate Website. They include an “about me” page, a contact page, a careers section, and probably a page with news and press releases. The words look good on paper, and, more than likely, a committee gave the final sign-off on the site's content. Visitors frequented these pages... (more)

E-Commerce with Hybris

People are accustomed to buying goods online. If a company sells products to individuals, we call it B2C for Business To Consumers. If a business sells to other businesses – it’s B2B. Having an online store allows to sell around the clock regardless of the consumer’s location (at least within the country) as long as he or she is connected to the Internet. People spend some substantial time online and sellers are trying to reach their clients via all possible channels and devices being that a regular HTML Web page, a social network, a mobile application on any device with embedded browser. Still, some people aren’t Internet savvy and business will continue using more traditional channels like printed mail order catalogs. This is what the multi-channel marketing is about. Ideally, a business should be able to combine marketing the products with selling them right ther... (more)

Google Pays Exorbitant $3.1 Billion For a $100 - $150 Million DoubleClick

On Thursday, April 12, 2007, SYS-CON's SEO/SEM Journal News Desk reported a story entitled "Is Google Buying DoubeClick?" Today, on Saturday, April 14, 2007, Google's DoubleClick acquisition news crossed the wires. We reported in our original story: "Google, which is reportedly building its own DoubleClick-like ad-serving mechanism, is now supposed to be trying to buy DoubleClick since Microsoft was reported to be in talks with the online media buyer. The competition is supposed to make any deal more expensive. Last week they were already talking about the price for the $100 million-$150 million business being an exorbitant $2 billion. The Wall Street Journal, which originally broke the story, says Yahoo and AOL, one of DoubleClick's biggest accounts, have also kicked the tires. DoubleClick's alternative to a sale is to IPO."
