Digital Strategy

I haven't posted anything for ages. I guess I have lost my motivation for advertising to a certain degree.
I have moved my career into digital, my friends say I work "in the internet", but once you combine that with advertising it tends to get somewhat boring.
I have tried to attend so many seminars and workshop about the topic and the outcome of each is "the industry is still premature" or "a lot of things will change", "we are not sure what will happen", "we are still experimenting"; I was fed up with all of this and decided to attend an executive education course at Harvard called Taking marketing Digital, which only proved the same thing - yet with bigger players admitting the same including the likes of FaceBook, Twitter, and Second Life.
The only place i felt I learnt something was at "The Battle of Big Thinking" in London, where the key take out from all the big agencies was: There is no such thing as social media, there is only being social; and that digital is built into products, it is not an advertising layer added after the product is developed.
Moving this further I have come to believe that digital needs to be functional as opposed to advertising which tends to take the emotional route.
What I also like about this is that digital is something to discuss with the product teams and R&D as opposed to the marcomms team which to a certain extent has very little leverage on the product.
I'm currently working on my next big presentation about digital strategy, focusing on how digital needs to be functional and built into products following the product attributes and not the "brand essence" or "campaign idea".
I would like your comments on this please...
I promise to have my next presentation up by end of February.

You'll enjoy the inbound marketing university by Hubspot. Most conferences and exhibitions will not teach you anything concrete, and will end up frustrating you, I usually feel that way.

Internet is clearly a great place to promote your brand so that you can attract more number of potential customers in the effective manner. I've been using the social media platforms along with the professional service for running seo campaign. The results are very nice with these techniques.

Excelr’s online training in Guidewire is customized and for good enough reasons. Consider what regular trainers offer. A typica Digital Marketing Course in Sydney
would take learners through the basics
of Guidewire, teach them about configuration and understanding of various models, go on to organizing the claims centre and then best practices. This type of generalized
training is of little use to employees handling specific parts like claims management, policy management or billing. Excelr’s custom online training addresses gaps and goes
in-depth into specifics for each employee and his role. The result is that employees emerge better empowered and knowledgeable as well as skilled in what they have to deal with
on a day to day basis.Unlike others, Excelr does not believe in a one size fits all approach in corporate training if highest efficiency and productivity are the goals.
Each employee’s role is analyzed and a custom package is tailored to bring him up to speed. This has two benefits. One, the learner is motivated to learn because what he
learns directly concerns his areas of work. Two, he learns more, in-depth and at speed. The training is online so he can access materials any time he is free and proceed at
his convenience. He can access a tutor anytime he faces any issue while learning and become perfect in the selected modules. Tutors also go beyond to transfer the knowledge
they have gained through years of hands-on experience and give insights that are not usually available in a regular course. By establishing a one-to-one relationship with the
tutor, the learner remains committed and gets to know far more than he would be he to attend a classroom-based course.

Women fashion has always been in vouge. It has been continually changing, evolving, rebrading itself with every passing day. Compared to men,

women's clothing has far more variety in terms of colors options, fabrics and styles.

Just take a step out of your home and you would spot either a grocery store or a women's clothing shop first! No wonder even in the online world women are spoilt for choices
with the likes of Amazon, Flipkart bringing the neighbourhood retail stores to you on your fingertips.
Here we try to explore what are the other shopping options you have for women and what they are known for.
