Microsoft-Yahoo! - First Reactions Reverberate Around the Blogosphere

"One of the most important (if not the most important) news for 2008, and we are just in February," remarked Nelson Cienfuegos of the In Digital Marketing blog. He and nearly 60,000 others bloggers have been vigorously chewing over the ins and outs of Microsoft's $44.6BN mega-bid to acquire Yahoo! Inc. Cienfuegos continued: "First it was Microsoft investing in Facebook, now Microsoft is making a bid to acquire Yahoo for $44.6 Billion in order to create a powerful merger that will help both companies compete against Google. Yahoo! continues to struggle against Google in the race for online-advertising revenue and Internet-search market share. Yahoo stock closed at $19.18 at market close on Jan 31st 2008, this offer, $31 a share in cash and stock, is a 62% premium to yesterdays closing price. The market has yet opened and Yahoo stock is already at $30+ in premarket pri... (more)

Will PR Firms Survive The New Media Avalanche?

http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali Last week I received an email from Lindsey Miller at Ragan Communications. I answered her questions for a story she was working on here. The following is the full text of my reply to her on this subject. What kinds of PR firm will survive the "fast-approaching new media avalanche"? What steps will firms have to take to ensure that they make it through? I know a lot of PR firms that are chasing new accounts among publicly traded companies, which are seen as cash cows in the business. I also know a lot of firms whose sales teams are larger than their senior account staff which will actually get the job done. These firms have armies of new college-grad telemarketers spitting out press releases to the media. For a while you can get away with both approaches. Once the laws, rules and regulations change, the first group of PR firms will disapp... (more)

Twitter, Linked In, Ning and Ulitzer: Easy Personal Branding Strategy

Social Media on Ulitzer I use all of these social media tools and although they haven't put me on my own island in the Caribbean yet, I'm very pleased with the combined results. 1. Twitter – It’s the fastest way to share that you have created something of value. As a bonus, Tweetdeck or CoTweet are good ways to manage your Twitter efforts and research. Huge audience with lots of active participants. There are a few shady characters on Twitter but just like being at Grand Central Station, you just step aside and keep moving. It doesn't mean you eschew the benefit. Micro-blogging is probably here to stay so it's a good idea to get up on good habits regardless of what future tools look like. 2. Linked In – It’s the professional network standard where people will find you. A terrific way to maintain knowledge of what former colleagues are doing now. You can also join gr... (more)

Yahoo! Bets on AMP! To Counter Google and Microsoft

Just a month after Google closed its $3.4BN acquisition of ad sales management firm DoubleClick, Yahoo! has taken the wraps off its "Apex" project and said that it will be called AMP! - and ad publishing platform to rival those already being used by Google, Microsoft, and AOL to sell ads Web-wide. "We believe AMP! will deliver a faster, easier, and more automated and integrated way to create, buy, and sell advertising and do so across a transparent global marketplace," said Hilary Schneider, Yahoo! EVP of Global Partner Solutions today in a statement. "While online advertising grows more sophisticated, the process of doing business today is surprisingly cumbersome and manual," Schneider continued. With the time saved by using AMP!, Schneider contends, the advertising industry can better focus on developing great creative. The AMP! platform, says Yahoo!, will help mar... (more)

"Cloud Computing Expo" Call for Papers Now Open

The future model for providing IT infrastructure and services in large organizations is what many today are calling "Cloud Computing" - a concept popularized by Amazon through its web services efforts. Merrill Lynch analysts for example reckon that by 2011 the volume of Cloud Computing market opportunity will amount to $160BN, including $95N in business and productivity apps (e-mail, office, CRM, etc.) and $65BN in online advertising.

ONEsite Launches Proprietary Social Ad Platform

White label social networking software maker ONEsite is launching its very own advertising platform InteractAd today, essentially declaring traditional online advertising is past its prime and that it’s time for social advertising to take its place. Whether that notion is true or not is subject to debate, but we’ve noted earlier that online ad revenue growth seems to be grinding to a halt. ONEsite wants to provide an alternative ad platform that leverages community features, content-driven participation and viral elements like relationship and profile data from other social networks (through OpenID-enabled user signup integration with Facebook, MySpace and Google Friend Connect), and introduce intelligent, interactive banner ads that can track who is viewing them and also allow for brands managers to solicit feedback from users throughout campaigns. InteractAd will... (more)
