Business Insights And Technology Tips For Small And Midsized Enterprises (SMEs)

Enhancing Brand Marketing With Instagram 

The very interesting, informative article summarizes how companies are using Instagram to enhance the marketing of their brands. “If social media had an Academy Award, Instagram would win Best Picture of the Year. The popular photo-sharing platform snaps up 7.3 million daily users in the U.S. and last month zoomed by Twitter in daily mobile traffic. Instagram’s latest snap shot is a nearly tenfold increase from six months earlier “” from 886,000 average daily visitors in March 2012, according to data from comScore Mobile Metrix 2.0.”

Before Installing CRM Systems Consult Your Organizational Chart

Within the following article David Taber explains why it may not be immediately evident which employees should have access to CRM.  Taber  stated: “With most enterprise systems, it’s immediately clear who should be users and what they should be able to do on the system. Not so with CRM — and, over time, more and more employees and departments will need to be on the system.”

Big Data Can Make a Big Difference in Marketing 

Did you know that the world creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data every day?  By comparison, all of the earth’s oceans contain 352 quintillion gallons of water; if bytes were buckets, it would only take about 20 weeks of information gathering to fill the seas. Many in business have found that managing the ocean of data can be difficult.

Five Things That Could Sink Windows 8
