Are you marketing in the Year we live in?- The Game Changer

The Age we Live in (Smartphones)

"I'm a fan of traditional media, but I just don't believe in its price in 2015."
In continuation of the series ARE YOU MARKETING IN THE YEAR WE LIVE IN?. I started by giving us a the history of the internet as concise and precise as possible because the history is pretty much inexhaustible. haven said that let us now consider the most powerful of them all in the chain. i regard it as a "gateway drug" used to deliver the potency of the internet to the world.

My topic of discussion today will be on the evolution of a small sized box cupled with a portable screen, a back-light alongside a digital display function; The Smart Phone.

Years after the World Wide Web was released, 70 per cent of American households had internet access but you could not say same for the Africa continent, using the internet was slow, did i just say slow??????????? (jeeeez!!!) please another word that outweighs slow should be proposed.

With audio sharing already proving popular in the US, a group of ex-Pay-Pal employers developed YouTube. The first video uploaded to the site showed one of the founders discussing elephants.The potential of the video-sharing website was noted by Google, which purchased YouTube for a reported $US1.65 billion.

Meanwhile, blogging became a whole lot more compact with the emergence of micro blogging site Twitter.

Having enjoyed popularity in the Harvard community, a renamed Facebook opened its site to other universities before broadening its reach moving into the public domain.

"You can still sell books in a bookshop, it's just not as good an idea as it was in 1990. Market for today. "We need to market in the year that we actually live in."

In the same year, the first iPhone was released to be followed by a host of similar smartphones offering web access on the go. The smartphone revolutionised the way in which people accessed information.
You were no longer bound to the desktop. You could access it everywhere. Following the increasing iPhone market, Apple launched their App Store, carrying a selection of about 500 applications.  Android soon followed with their own application store and the number of apps quickly grew to a vast number allowing people to play games, share photos and videos, check in for flights on the move, and perform countless other tricks and tasks. 

The story telling ends in the next post. it going to be as revealing as if you were to be in a trance seeing your ancestors tell you about your family (big grin). Don't you dare miss it because am going be giving you reasons why YOU ARE NOT SELLING RIGHT IN THE AGE WE LIVE IN.
