No 💵 in Culture, Alibaba ≠ Amazon & something with Chewing-gum

So… vacation starts this week. Meaning… lots of fun & mobile traffic to websites, apps & messenger apps! Keeping an eye on that, are we?

Diving right into it
Until we ruin the crap out of messenger, this looks promising to do some experimenting with Facebook messenger. Cool stuff, but how will you report? Are you willing to do a test and after that scale-up? Communication is getting more decentralized by the day and although we want to keep track of everything we do, we simply aren’t able to track it all. GDPR ‘the right to be forgotten’ will be an extra feature that will request the need for a centralized data-warehouse. Besides that, it makes it possible to take scalable advertising to the next level and do one-to-few communication. And cool new tools start to pop up to skip making lagging dashboards! (I WANT THIS ASAP).
Aaaaah, crap.
Facebook strategy on point?
If might have slipped your attention. 5 days ago, Facebook reached an EPIC milestone: hitting 2 BILLION MONTHLY ACTIVE USERS
If Facebook isn’t a part of your strategy, get in, now! If Facebook is a part of your strategy, ramp it up. But don’t forget: don’t put all your eggs into one basket! Google is one basket, the other basket is Facebook (insta & whatsapp incl.). 
Translate your a business to a marcom strategy. Adjust digital(-first) communication & formats per platform, customer-segment & customer-profile. Strive to centralize all measurements, if possible. Shortcut centralization in Google Analytics if money is an issue.

Remarkable reads, spotted momentum & behavioral patterns in media, digital, retail, economics, health, climate, etc.
Often hollistic, sometimes very specific.
