Rethinking “Competition” – The Share of Voice Disruption

This article is inspired by a recent conversation with a leadership member of an insurance company. We talked about Digital Transformation and the challenges deriving from new business models and industrial disruption. He had one angle on the subject that kind of dumbstruck me and I felt silly to have never thought about it myself: the disruption through the inability to reach out to potential target groups in the attempt to get to the first A in AIDA: attention. Here’s my reflection on the conversation to share it with you.

the influence of #mobile on #productivity; #socbiz #enterprise20 #socialbusiness #mobility

Summary: Mobility is on top of the agenda of a lot of (if not all) companies – no matter if they have ever had their hand on a laptop or not 😉 Tablets and smartphones seem to have added new spice to the subject. Now it’s so spicy that mobility seems to be a wholeContinue reading “the influence of #mobile on #productivity; #socbiz #enterprise20 #socialbusiness #mobility”
