Sharing is Caring

without comments

At the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple announced integration of Facebook and Twitter into their mobile and desktop operating systems.
Whether it is an fascinating article, a photo of friends, or where you are on a Friday night, Apple is making it easier to share with a click of a button and the swipe of your finger. Did I mention that Siri can help you out?
In addition to full system integration of Facebook and Twitter, Apple also announced that the “Like” button will be making its debut on the App and iTunes Store. Users will also see which friends have liked a particular app, song, movie, or TV show – bringing social influence to one of the most popular digital retailers.
Just when you thought no one would find out that you purchased Justin Bieber’s new song, now your whole social graph knows…

Every wonder why users are getting tired of reading Facebook and Twitter status’ and resort to pinning their lives away? So did MKTG INC’s Susan Liao, who really pin-points the amazing appeal of the ever-growing social media giant named Pinterest in MediaPost Communications. We highly recommend checking it out–after all, she is the VP of Digital Solutions.

(Duh…Pinning!)

In case you haven’t noticed, MKTG’s homepage is in Morse code. Well now, our tweets can be too. Behold, the TeleTweet app, which translates all of your tweets into Morse code.

It may not be the most efficient way to tweet.  For starters, just look at that @ symbol.

That Can Be My Next Tweet: Nelson Cruz Is a Perfect Golden Bronze

without comments

Screen shot 2012-04-18 at 5.17.55 PM

For when 140 characters is asking FAR too much…

…there’s That Can Be My Next Tweet. A new site that generates your next potential Tweet based on words or phrases you have used in the past. While the Tweets are usually gibberish, they can provide a bit of nonsensical humor, or they can make you look like you have a man crush on Texas Rangers OF Nelson Cruz (see above – they did seem to nail at least one point though #awesome).

I think it’s now safe to say that we’ve reached true rock bottom of interpersonal communication. It’s a sad day when Twitter provides TOO much freedom in the way of expression.

I will say, however, that it’d be nice to have a blog post generator that just combined random marketing terms to maximize hits.

Engagement. Consumer impressions. Social media. Flash mob.

FLASH MOB.

Look Ma…No Computer!

What if Twitter had existed during the Victorian Age? Would our tweets have been more grammatically correct?

Hard to say, but your Twitter feed might have looked something like this: the Twittertape Machine, the astounding device that will print a copy of all your tweets without ink or a computer. Just hook it up to an Ethernet cord and it will check for your tweets every 30 seconds.

You know you want one.

A KD IV Christmas: Delivering Online Engagement (and Shoes)

This past December, NBA superstar Kevin Durant (KD), with the help of MKTG INC and Nike Basketball, set out in his conversion van to give away pairs of his Nike Zoom kicks, known as the “KD IV Copper.”  The shoe’s unique copper colorway was developed for his Christmas Day matchup with the Orlando Magic.

KD gave away the highly anticipated shoes to fans at three different locations. The twist? No one knew where those locations were ahead of time.

To match KD’s humble demeanor, MKTG INC avoided in-store chaos with a grassroots approach that built a groundswell online. KD posted teasers about the activation via Twitter, giving fans a heads up that they’d need to keep their eyes open to score a free pair.

By featuring destinations from KD’s ‘Basketball Never Stops’ commercial, MKTG INC tied the programming to the brand, while giving fans an intimate experience with their local star.  KD tweeted the destinations in real-time, as fans flocked from all over Oklahoma City for a chance to win a pair of the KD IV Copper and meet the NBA’s quiet superstar.

The response on Twitter was overwhelmingly positive. Over 6000 related tweets were posted over the course of three days, all with one recurring theme: Kevin Durant is awesome (and generous). In fact, a Santa hat-wearing KD made ESPN’s Top 10 Plays on the night before Christmas, spreading Christmas cheer and wishing all a good night.

From Bad Boy to mad man

From Bad Boy to mad man

Ad-industry rag The NY Egotist got a real earful this week when they came by the MKTG Creative Studio for a chat with our own Louis Marino. After 20 years in the music and fashion industries, including 2 as creative director at Bad Boy Entertainment, our man Marino knows a thing or two about keeping beat with the big boys. In the Egotist profile posted here, he talks about how music informs his craft, how celebrities can best avoid Twitter troubles but still engage their audience, and what MKTG’s own future business objectives are (clue: rhymes with Pick Grass).
