Certainly Mashable isn't the first to drop a spoiler, and they likely won't be the last. But for many, it was the fact that they should have known better. After all, this is a company that touts itself as being "a leading source for news, information, and resources for the Connected Generation."

    Storytelling has been the buzzword of marketing, on and off, since marketing became a ‘thing’. Now, with an increasing number of companies looking to incorporate video into their content marketing strategy, storytelling is becoming more important than ever. Savvy companies worldwide are turning to visual storytelling to great effect, connecting with their audiences to convey a message that’s inspiring and engaging. However, many brands and businesses still struggle with this, complicating their story with a message that’s too complex or devoid of emotion. One company with years of…
  • The customer is always right, a correction

    Neil Davidson
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:42 am
    Who is ‘right’ is not always black and white. And this is certainly true of the video production industry. As a relatively new field, online video production is an area that lacks general knowledge and expertise. Whilst customer service remains paramount whatever the industry, I am going to argue in this article that ‘the customer is always right’ is a philosophy that needs to be corrected for the purposes of video production. Ask yourself the following multiple choice question, and answer from the perspective of a client: if you approach a video production company with an idea that…

    Neil Davidson
    30 Mar 2014 | 11:59 pm
    Making a corporate video requires a significant investment of both time and money, so it’s essential to make your video work hard in order to achieve a respectable return on investment. Many companies post their video onto their website, optimised for SEO in order to grab some passing traffic, and consider it finished. However, with a certain amount of planning and thought, it’s possible to find multiple ways to make your video work even harder.

    Neil Davidson
    25 Mar 2014 | 2:18 am
    Unless you’ve taken a total break from social media for the past week or so, it’s highly likely you’ve stumbled across a beautifully shot/sickeningly staged (delete as appropriate) film which shows 20 strangers kissing for the first time. Published on 10th March 2014, First Kiss has since racked up a staggering view count of 62 million at time of writing, as viewers are drawn into this emotionally engaging, edgy/cheesy video. But how many of those viewers are aware that they’re actually watching a fashion ad for Wren Studio’s fall collection? With branding so subtle it’s almost…

    Perhaps I just do not “get it” anymore, maybe I have grown so long in the tooth that I cannot figure out what is genuinely good anymore when it comes to online video?!? When you work in online video marketing, an essential part of the job is to stay on top of what is happening – who is doing well with innovative online video and what the next big thing will be. Recently, I was looking through the Unruly Viral Video Chart and I came across a video that astounded me. It has had over 22 million views and yet it is one of the most boring videos I have had the misfortune to watch in…

    This release speeds up cover art alternatives (the change art and cover art alternatives pages) which has slowed since the work to fix Discogs artwork download. Before, two queries were made for cover art, one with the tag information and one with the audio fingerprints. Despite the fact that the former always returned much faster, the results were not displayed until the fingerprint results had also been returned. So I've changed this such that all results are immediately displayed as they are streamed back to bliss. This means you get cover art alternatives much faster! Carry on browsin'…
  • Which day of the week is bliss used most?

    Dan Gravell
    17 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    In a pique of curiosity, I recently wondered "which day of the week is bliss most used?" Anecdotally, it felt like the weekend was the busiest time for bliss. Those are certainly the most common days for purchases. But I'd never actually measured it before. Measuring is also pretty difficult because it's not necessarily clear what "using" bliss means. bliss doesn't really have much in the way of analytics built in. It registers anonymously when bliss is started for the first time and that's about it. In addition, our metadata and cover art search service at OneMusicAPI anonymously logs…
  • Work in progress: correcting tag capitalisation with regular expressions

To others who have used regular expressions some of it might make some sense. To me, however, there are three reasons why this is exciting... and why it promises interesting new avenues for bliss. The most immediate reason this is exciting is that this is a piece of code that can change album names to a starting upper-case character. If your…

    15 Apr 2014 | 3:10 am
    If this blog is beginning to remind you of MSNBC or Fox News commentaries, please accept my apology.  Since December, the topic of politics and radio has become strangely regular in this space.  That’s because radio has simply not benefitted proportionately during election campaigns – which pretty much means all the time.   Whether it’s big races or local initiatives, it seems like there’s always an election or a ballot issue stirring up emotion and opinion. Somehow, radio fell out of favor with political strategists – or maybe it was never well-positioned to begin…

  • All We Are Saying is… Give Bing a Chance

    Daniel Clutterbuck
    24 Mar 2014 | 3:23 am
    Bing (and Yahoo) are relatively small search engines when put up against the giant that is Google. Recent research shows Google having 83.13% of the market share and Bing holding 5.8% with Yahoo having 8.4%. So what would make anyone bother advertising on Bing I hear you ask? Despite obviously playing second fiddle to Google with regards to traffic, they have a share of around 14.2% of the market. This means they still have a relatively large search audience. This number is increasing as Bing continues to chip away at Google’s market dominance. From our research and use of Bing Ad’s, we…

    Online shopping has grown significantly over recent years and it now accounts for a huge proportion of the total revenue for companies of all sizes, all over the world. However, relatively little is known about the psychology behind the decisions that consumers make, while buying things on the web. What we do know is that over 67% of online shoppers abandon their purchase during the checkout process. The reasons behind such a decision include hidden charges, having to register before buying, the length of the checkout process and unclear delivery details. One interesting statistic is that…
  • Is social media a natural skill or can it be taught?

    Daniel Clutterbuck
    17 Feb 2014 | 7:24 am
    You only need to use social media every now and then to get a taste for how different companies and individuals communicate through Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. Each one is different, and each account has varying success – So what makes some companies rocket to social media success whilst others put in maximum effort and simply flounder? That question raises another – how much social media success is simply because the brand or individual is famous?  The sceptical among us will likely believe that brand power has a huge baring on social media success – for example, let’s say you…

Many fans of the critically acclaimed movie, who gave the project $5.7 M on Kickstarter, flooded Twitter with complaints, requiring refunds. Source:…

    If you live in Kitchener-Waterloo you may have seen some disheartening posts from citiesjournal.com that placed Kitchener-Waterloo on a list of Top 15 Cities and Towns To Move Away From In Canada and Immigroup naming Kitchener-Waterloo #2 on a list of Top 8 Worst Places to Move to in Canada. Both posts implied that Kitchener-Waterloo is unwelcoming to newcomers and immigrants.

    A Facebook ad done right can achieve awesome results. It seems that until recently, Facebook’s ad platform was optimized more for driving those results within Facebook. But back in October we began to see a shift where Facebook Ads Manager began to better integrate business objectives living outside of Facebook, including website conversions. Brands have invested a lot of resources over the last few years into building large fan bases to market towards. They’re now looking for better ways to turn that access into real actions and real sales.  Facebook seems to be listening, as…

    Marketing is fun. It’s the combination of art and science to convince people to part ways with their money in exchange for products and services. For some customers that job is easier than others. At Stryve Group, there is a segment of people we like to call “A Marketer’s Dream”. I know, because I’m married to one. My wife looooves to buy stuff.  She responds very easily to mass marketing, emotional branding and most importantly deals that really aren’t deals. Frankly, she’s a one-person focus group for Stryve Group. She’ll let me know right…

Your fantastic new website that is going to draw in the crowds, make you rich, and one which you will be simply flooded with business… never seems to work, properly.

    Visual.ly is exactly what it’s name implies. It is about creating unique and definable visuals with your online presence. And yes, this is something that I regularly talk about from my online digital strategy plan – including using visuals in your content (Frame #2 – Content Planning), as well as creating a wide array of branded visuals (Frame #4 – Video & Visuals). It’s no wonder that other social networks based on visuals are in fact storming online – we are decidedly visual and love to see rather than read. Perhaps it is because we are lazy, or just…

    We have new business cards here at This Is Common and we are proud of them. So proud that we wanted to share them with the world on Twitter and Facebook – as you may have seen. We are not just proud of them because of their design or unique size but because of the nice happy faces we see when we pass them on. But why is this important and why does using impressive business cards correctly make a difference? According to experts, business cards can be traced back to the 15th Century in China when they were known as ‘visiting cards’. They were small cards passed on from one to another…
