This is how you Hype-Jack! The Tactics of a Smart Marketer

Marketers are looking to create hype all the time. But, Smart Marketers are looking for the hype to hi-jack on. They just Hype-jack! The more official term for this phenomenon is “News-jacking”, but I somehow prefer “Hype-Jacking” for the intent, for the relevance today, and for the simple phonetics!

Think again. Social Media is not a Job, it’s a Skill!

If I started off with saying Social Media is important for Businesses, I’d sound time-shifted backward by at least 2 years. Everyone knows that already.

Game Changer #1: The Great Facilitation ballgame of Multi-sided Business Platforms

This era clearly belongs to the multi-sided Platforms based business. Google and Apple have become the most valuable companies in the world. Amazon, that revolutionized the Books and Publishing markets through the e-Commerce strategy, has since transformed itself into a Platform company. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and recently Pinterest have become the household names, beyond the tech world. Travel, Hospitality & Commute have become well-integrated platforms driven businesses – driven through online technologies and ground-level operational integration. If you’re in any business – whether it’s technology or not, whether it’s e-commerce or not, whether it’s products or services – don’t ignore this trend. Think about how you can leverage on this model, or be part of this ever-growing multi-cog machine that benefits all its gears.
