As web users get harder and harder to engage, search intent as a marketing concept has become a hotter topic.The thing is, with mobile and voice search, your reader’s attention span is short because today’s consumer searches and decides on the go.Know (also known as “informational” intent): A search user is looking for information.Think about “best products” or “how to cook” type queries.These searchers don’t expect to see paragraphs of text.With Google always trying to satisfy its users better (as well as faster) and making successful attempts at understanding each search query on a deeper level (including its context and its probable intent), optimizing for search intent has become key to search visibility.

I won't completely give up the internet for good, but I did learn to balance out my internet usage better.No email, with one exception: I could send and receive business emails related to other assignments.When I woke up on Wednesday morning, I had already taped a yellow sticky to my phone: "No internet."It was there to remind me not to slide into in my normal routine, since seemingly everything I do marinates in the internet.But it's irrelevant, since I hadn't thought to do it.Takeaway: Getting it was inconvenient, and reading it was like getting news through a tiny black and white tube compared to the technicolor experience of rapidly browsing multiple news sources online.

The negative effects of social media and a hectic news cycle on our attention span has been an on-going discussion in recent years--but there's been a lack of empirical data supporting claims of a 'social acceleration'.A new study in Nature Communications finds that our collective attention span is indeed narrowing, and that this effect occurs - not only on social media - but also across diverse domains including books, web searches, movie popularity, and more.Our public discussion can appear to be increasingly fragmented and accelerated.Sociologists, psychologists, and teachers have warned of an emerging crisis stemming from a 'fear of missing out', keeping up to date on social media, and breaking news coming at us 24/7.In a new study, conducted by a team of European scientists from Technische Universität Berlin, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, University College Cork, and DTU, this empirical evidence has been presented regarding one dimension of social acceleration, namely the increasing rates of change within collective attention.The scientists have studied Twitter data from 2013 to 2016, books from Google Books going back 100 years, movie ticket sales going back 40 years, and citations of scientific publications from the last 25 years.

“There’s a big difference between a satisfied customer and a loyal customer.Employees do what is measured, incentivized and celebrated.So, how do you create engaged employees who will impact customer loyalty and ultimately help boost NPS?• Instill a sense of ownership and responsibility in every employee so that they start to truly care about the ultimate business outcome – serving the customer and building loyalty.• Give your employees a strong WHY.Even if you find that an employee is making silly mistakes, do not put him/her down in front of everyone else.Talk to them, understand their point of view, and see how you can help them rectify the errors.• Celebrate and incentivize.Tap into Your DetractorsAn effective NPS program helps you identify unhappy customers (detractors).If you don’t do something about these customers, they most likely will churn, publicize their poor experiences and consequently bring down your Net Promoter Score.
I work at the Octopus Group and get to help build new stuff supported by a very long-term approach from our founders.But, if you google “disruptive company” you will get pages of hits such as Disruptor 100, The Festival of Disruption, 2018’s Top Disrupters.If you google “disruptive children”, the sentiment is less positive.I couldn’t find “2018’s Top Disruptive Children”?—?although I only made it to page 3 of the search results (short attention span) ????I know it’s too simple but adulation and unprecedented wealth are heaped upon the successful founders and early employees of businesses that disrupted taxis, banking, hotels, food delivery.Entrepreneurship is seen as increasingly important for the UK to remain competitive in a world of AI, automation, Brexit and Trump.

This week, Lyft debuted on Wall Street, the European Union approved a controversial online copyright law and CNET continued our special coverage of facial recognition technology.But let's be real, the news this week was dominated by Apple, which unveiled a new TV streaming service and more during a star-studded event on Monday.(And yes, Apple features prominently in the list below.There was really no way around it.)Sure, Apple is into services now.But from Apple Card to TV Plus, everything is still tailored for its own phone.
But by the end of the week, I had become less distracted and more productive.I ended up redownloading my apps at the end of the experiment — but not all of them.It was also the culmination of other steps I've taken to distance myself from my phone: I've already managed to completely give up texting, I keep my phone on silent 24/7, and recently, I started putting my phone on airplane mode for the entire work day.So I figured, why not go a step further and remove any temptation to use the apps on my phone by removing them completely?First, I counted all the apps I'd installed on my refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9.I thought about how many of the apps I actually used and imagined I'd miss some of them much more than others: Facebook Messenger — since I mostly live abroad, it's my primary mode of written and verbal communication with friends and family; Instagram — to connect with other travelers and bloggers; Spotify — when I need to drown out distractions while working; Amazon Kindle — since it's not practical to carry physical books from country to country; and Google Chrome — for obvious reasons.
The race to give Chinese users their daily dose of news intensifies as Qutoutiao, a rival to TikTok parent Bytedance, net an installment of sizable backing.Alibaba is injecting $171 million in a convertible loan to Qutoutiao, the three-year-old news and video aggregation startup, according to an announcement released Thursday.The transaction will convert into about 11.4 million shares of Qutoutiao at a price of $15 per American depositary shares, representing about 4 percent of Qutoutiao.The deal arrived just six months after Qutoutiao raised $84 million in a downsized initial public offering through Nasdaq.Qutoutiao, which means “Fun headlines” in Chinese, runs a news app that feeds users content based on their past habit and an e-book reading app for those with a longer attention span.The Shanghai-based company is among a handful of startups alongside ecommerce challenger Pinduoduo that are piling into the largely untapped, smaller cities outside China’s major urban centers of Beijing and Shanghai for growth.

Schools and governments around the world are struggling to figure out how to deal with smartphones in the classroom.Last year, France passed a law that banned students from using smart devices at school, and now in the UK politicians are discussing joining in, with UK schools minister Nick Gibb recently saying there should be a new policy introduced to ban phones from schools.platform, I was invited to a round table discussion on the topic of ‘Tablets in the classroom.’ The conversation I listened to then is the same conversation I’m hearing now.As with Nick Gibb’s comments, there was a lack of focus on the real problem at hand.The conversation I frustratingly listened to in 2012 focused on replicating existing pedagogies (“let’s digitize textbooks!”) and preventing bad behavior (“they’ll just be on Facebook the whole time!”), rather than involving teachers and students to find out how a richer learning experience could be created.Instead of banning mobile phones from schools as a solution to distraction, it’s time politicians used their influence to empower the education sector as a whole to turn these powerful devices into genuine learning companions.

Watching 50-minute episodes of Mad Men is taking anywhere between 1.5 to 2 hours because I keep getting distracted.Some variation of these thoughts creeps into my brain every few minutes, glacializing my Mad Men progress.This was four months ago.Yeah, meeting people and seeing the world is cool, but I also wanted to use this trip to catch up on random shows, books and movies I could never get around to watching in my real life.I figured I'd have almost unlimited time, so it would be easy.But the widespread understanding that social media use is a waste of time is telling.
Two key dates stand out in the partnership between ecommerce application and platform Wish and the National Basketball Association’s Los Angeles Lakers: Sept. 21, 2017, and July 9, 2018.On the first date, Wish and the Lakers agreed to a three-year deal, estimated at $12 million to $14 million per year, for the app’s logo to appear on the club’s jerseys.And on the second date, NBA superstar LeBron James signed a four-year, $154 million contract to join the Lakers.Wish managing director of partnerships Sam Jones described the 8-year-old company as a global marketplace, saying that it has 400 million customers and it ships 2 million to 3 million products per day, mostly out of China, keeping its prices down by sending goods directly from manufacturers to customers.There are over 1 million sellers on Wish, and the app features some 200 million individual products.Jones said that prior to the Lakers deal, the challenge for Wish was: “In a company that’s all-mobile, how do you present products that users will like when they have a very limited attention span?”

What would you do - bear with its slow-paced speed and stick by its side, no matter how much time does it demand to be load; or quickly close the tab and move out for finding a better and faster alternative.In the previous situation, the visitor merely loses on a couple of minutes but will eventually find an alternative to their search.But for a website owner, it’s about losing a potential customer who could have helped in bettering the ROI of his website.Today, WordPress is one of the most chosen platforms, whether it’s for small blogs or some heavily loaded website with high traffic.In fact, the WordPress site optimisation is what will help you to build a compelling connection with your visitor, which eventually can lead to better business opportunities for you.In fact, as per a study by Microsoft, the current digital era the attention-span of a human is lesser than that of a Goldfish.Source: AddWeb Solution
The human attention span is now eight seconds, less than that of a fish.One category is rife with marketing potential and built for these short attention span: esports.For a while, many non-endemic brands—brands not tied any specific performance or functionality in gaming—have rolled their eyes at the notion that esports had longevity and is a worthwhile investment.If you have heard anything about esports in the past year, it’s “be authentic or they’ll sniff you out.” Authenticity actually avoids logo slapping and finds ways to contribute to the space.Similar to the Boy Scout code of honor, “leave a place better than you found it.” Brands should find a way to add value and make the experience better than if they hadn’t been a part of it.Twitch’s director of global sponsorship and sales, Nathan Lindberg, has traditionally pointed to ad as a badge of honor in esports and on Twitch.
Through A/B testing, you can send two marginally different emails to your target audience and determine which kind of emails bring maximum engagement.Let’s discuss the advantages of A/B testing and how it helps marketers to understand their target audience better.Information gathered by creating multiple campaigns with the same goal and same target audience can be the guiding light for more effective email campaigns.Based on the results, you can choose the winning version as the final send, which will ultimately drive better subscriber engagement.The one that brings you better open rates will be considered as the winning email.For example: Test “50% off continues” or “Avail your coupon code now” as the preview text, that would inform the subscriber about what the email is all about and prompt them to take action.

I don’t have the time, energy, or attention span to give every email a thoughtful reply.It’s a problem Google has been trying to solve with a Gmail feature called Smart Replies, the automatically generated, prewritten responses that pop up when you’re composing an email.Email’s terrible, but do I now need to worry about it destroying language and cratering our relationships, too?Most short email responses aren’t carefully written as it is, so we aren’t exactly losing out on poetry, says Naomi Baron, a professor of linguistics emerita at American University and author of Words Onscreen: The Fate of Reading in a Digital World.“We like to assume that we’re more creative than we actually are,” she says.When you’re reading an email in Gmail, Google’s Smart Replies presents three short sentences you can shoot back in response that are usually as simple as, “Thanks, I’ll check it out,” or “Haha, thanks!” The replies are based on each individual user’s writing style, as determined by machine learning.

After Facebook Watch, Lasso and IGTV failed to become hits with teens, the company has been quietly developing another youthful video product.It’s divided into categories like “For You,” “Animals,” “Fails,” “Pranks” and more with content pulled from News Feed posts by top meme Pages on Facebook.LOL is currently in private beta with around 100 high school students who signed non-disclosure agreements with parental consent to do focus groups and one-on-one testing with Facebook staff.In response to TechCrunch’s questioning, Facebook confirmed it is privately testing LOL as a home for funny meme content with a very small number of U.S. users.While those testers experience LOL as a replacement for their Watch tab, Facebook says there’s no plans to roll out LOL in Watch and the team is still finalizing whether it will become a separate feature in one of Facebook’s main app or a standalone app.[Update: A Facebook spokesperson has now provided an official statement: “We are running a small scale test and the concept is in the early stages right now.”]
