We would like to hear from you. Did you learn anything new here? I know that everyone has a chance to share and learn when they are open to the experience. Are you taking your automation to the next level?
We talk about analytics, tracking, privacy and so much more.
Takeaways include all of the different platforms you can use to save time and save money.
Mobile apps need to be careful when they use automation. Forms need to be accessible.
Jaime Nacach graded the following platforms: 1-10, 10 being best.
Constant Contact 7-8
Zoho Campaigns 9-10
Hubspot ….not used, but would give it a 10.
Also, Agile CRM
and InfusionSoft was mentioned.
Big companies may not embrace Automation as small firms can. They are not as agile.
Listen to the recording to find out what works and what doesn’t.
Thank you to Jaime Nacach from Bloominari Marketing.

Want to know more about personal data, especially when it’s yours?
People’s relationship with their personal information is changing. People are becoming aware that their personal information is employed by organizations (inc. commercial, non-commercial, government) to support background operations, to personalize services, to deliver conveniences and value. However, to date, outside simple opt-in mechanics, people have had little to no active role in the management of their personal information. For example, people have little to no insight or say in how their data is used for marketing, in predictive analytics modeling, credit scoring, real-identity detection & resolution, fraud management, and a host of other applications that have a material effect on nearly every aspect of their lives. We’re entering an age of awareness and awakening. The increase of public data breaches, the rise of recognized security flaws in hardware and software, and actual and perceived data misuses of personal data are opening people’s eyes to the need to protect their privacy and to take an active role in the management of their personal information. One day, market leaders envision, that the majority of people will awaken to the undeniable fact that their personal information has value, that it is their asset, and that they can have an active role in its management–its production, collection, refinement, use, exchange, and value. However, for many, having control over the sovereignty of their digital self may be out of reach of many, as privacy is the new luxury good.
In this session Mary Beth McCabe and Michael Becker have an online fireside chat on the future of privacy and the emergence of the individual digital sovereignty. We’ll discuss the triggers–changes in people’s behavior, the regulatory and technology landscape, and commercial reactions—that have triggered a tsunami that is washing over the world’s economies. Once the waters recede the landscape of business will forever be changed. It is time to prepare.

“What is Artificial Intelligence? And how is Artificial Intelligence different from Machine Learning?”
We will talk about this Monday, Jan 29 from 11am -12 Noon PST LIVE with Jamie. Here is the login. https://zoom.us/j/8584882867
Conversation starter here from Jamie’s blog….. “AI is the ability for a computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. AI is an umbrella term that would include a wide variety of things including self-driving cars, Google search, image recognition software, and a whole slew of stuff you already use or are at least thinking of using.
Machine Learning is a sub-category of AI. It gives computers the ability to automatically learn and improve by using algorithms. (An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for solving a problem or reaching a goal. It’s sort of like a recipe that you keep adjusting and improving each time you use it.)
Artificial Intelligence is a broad category that covers computers and robots that do human tasks, and Machine Learning is a sub-category that focuses in on the use of algorithms that continue to improve the more they’re used.”
AI= Google Image Search, Paid Search, and Facebook Feed. Also, Netflix, Spotify and Pandora all give you AI.
Jamie’s got a list of 157 AI platforms and growing.

Maybe it’s replaced your best friend. Maybe you never are without it. According to the IAB, two thirds of us are operating a device every thirty minutes of our awake time. And one in five of us is checking the phone every five minutes. Are you that one in five?
We knew that teens would rather have a mobile phone than a car, but this is a new finding, about time spent and how dependent we are on communications.
The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) would like you to think that advertising is effective on mobile phones, too. They have some studies that prove this. Take a look here and comment if you like.

This photo (below) was the very first in the series, back in January, 2017. We are now well into the calendar year, so we have a lot in the pipeline as well as a history. Our Facebook page promotes the events. @mobilemarketingsocialmedia. We don’t charge a fee to attend. We want to inform, educate and help you with your individual needs. We hold these every other Monday at present. We may expand to a weekly format in the future.
What device do you use to connect to the internet?
So if 95% of the Chinese are using their Smartphone to connect to the internet, that means they are nearly always using the best connected tool in the world for accessing information. Only 60% are using the desktop (trending down) and just over a third using the laptop (trending down) and fewer using the tablet (same). One trend to note here is that Connected TV usage is up in 2016, to 25% (trending up). This comes to us from eMarketer. (Jan 2017)
What does it tell us? It says that the Chinese users have embraced mobile in a big way, with 19 out of 20 people (1.3 Billion live there) owning and using a smartphone that connects them instantly from where they are to where they want to be.
Dr. McCabe, teaching Mobile Marketing Essentials in Guangzhou, China
I was grateful to have been invited to be a Visiting Professor for a week at Nanfang College at Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China in November, 2016. Pictured, above, I was in the classroom, teaching some of the basic and not so basic strategies of marketing. I also taught from my textbook, Mobile Marketing Essentials (pub. by Stukent, Inc).
These students taught me so much about Mobile payments. They did not carry or need credit cards or cash. They used their smartphone everywhere they went, and purchased whatever they needed directly from the phone. It was as simple as waving the phone near the reader and letting bluetooth technology take over the payments.
These payments can also be found inside the WeChat app, so you don’t even need to download a different app. They have mini apps inside, so you can have a one stop shopping experience. I will hope to return to China again, and this time, not wait 28 years to make that happen. Maybe I’ll be back again this year!
