According to a recent study, half of brands surveyed this year are tweeting 30 or more messages each week. For comparison, half of the monitored brands tweeted fewer than seven times per week in 2012.

What’s more, 63% of brands surveyed now manage multiple accounts on Twitter. In 2011, just 7% had multiple accounts. We’ve noticed some companies setting-up dedicated Twitter accounts for customer service, and now we might see that trend spilling over into other departments

Marketers Are Collecting Data – But Having Trouble Leveraging It


Teradata-Data-Collected-Used-To-Drive-Marketing-Aug201345% of global marketers agree that data is the most underutilized asset in their organization, per survey results [download page] from Teradata. Indeed, while a majority currently collect a range of data types, including demographic (80%), customer service (72%) and customer satisfaction (62%), fewer report using the data. And although marketers ascribe various benefits to the use of data in decision-making, the study shows that few are able to systematically apply a data-driven marketing approach to regular tasks.

the American phone subsidy model is a RAZR way of thinking in an iPhone world


The concept is simple enough — pay more, get more. So it has gone (historically, anyway) with phone subsidies in this part of the world, a system that has served us admirably for well over a decade. It made sense, and although it was never spelled out at the customer service counter quite as clearly as any of us would’ve liked, it was fairly straightforward to understand: you bought a phone on a multi-dimensional sliding scale of attractiveness, functionality, and novelty.
