Earlier this week, Sainsbury's purchased a majority stake in ebook retailer Anobii from HMV for £1 in what was the latest example of a major retailer trying to extend its footprint into the world of digital content.
Yesterday, we saw another example of this same trend as Tesco purchased UK-based music streaming service We7 for £10.8m.
Google's acquisition of YouTube may prove to be one of the savviest in internet history. Although some believed it appeared rich at the time, ask any of the companies that could have purchased Facebook for $1bn-plus less than a decade ago, and they'd probably tell you that sometimes, eleven figures is cheap.
But a big part of the reason YouTube has been so successful following its acquisition by Google is that the search giant continues to invest heavily in its development. The company is working with Hollywood to produce original content, and has made great strides over the years in inking licensing pacts with content creators.
Didn't think Twitter was mainstream?
All doubt about Twitter's position in the media world was laid to rest this weekend as the company aired its first ever television commercial during the Pocono 400 NASCAR race.
Yesterday at Blogworld, Callan Green from Sony Electronics presented Sony's new Pinterest strategy and highlighted how businesses can get started in this growing space.
When you are preparing for the launch of this kind of strategy, it's helpful for your team to begin by using the platform personally. Next, it's important to research existing brand pins in the community. When Sony searched Pinterest, they found a lot of gadgets as they expected but they also found a lot of old school products and pictures of fan made products such as Sony walkman shaped cakes.
By knowing what fans wanted, this allowed the Sony team to plan its potential boards and analyze the assets they already had in its Flickr community, in house and in its archives.
Rick Wion, the director of Social Media at McDonald's, opened his presentation at Blogworld in New York this week with the statement "everyone loves a crisis."
Controversy spurs conversation, crisis can drive traffic, and hand-wringing draws a lot of attention. In most cases, pundits are very good at it.
But what can you do as a company to navigate these waters?
Two of Silicon Valley's biggest names. $33m in pre-launch funding. A roster of A-list celebrities ready to unveil a product to the world.
If you're thinking the year is 1999 and you're at a party in San Francisco, you're wrong. It's 2012 and the city is New York.
At the Footwear News Summit today in New York, Blake Mycoskie took to the stage to speak about TOMS shoes and his top three tips for success.
The idea of TOMS came after Mycoskie went on vacation to Argentina and saw that children there were in need of shoes and in fact, couldn't go to school without them. He thought he'd sell shoes where every pair a customer bought, a pair of shoes would go to one of the children in the village he visited.
That was all TOMS was meant to do.
I've rounded up some of the most interesting digital marketing stats I've seen this week.
Stats include the paid search market, mobile checkouts, Apple's App Store, and online video...
The amount of long form content viewed on connected TVs and gaming consoles increased to nearly 90% in Q1 2012 compared to 57% Q4 2011, according to a report from Ooyala.
Across all connected devices, long form content (any video longer than ten minutes) now accounts for more than half the total time spent watching video online.
Mobile video showed huge growth last quarter, with the overall share of time watched on smartphones increasing by 41% to 29% overall.
Thanks to its $3.1bn acquisition of DoubleClick in 2008, Google is one of the biggest players in the display advertising space.
It's a competitive market on the advertiser side, but companies like DoubleClick must also compete to woo and retain publishers. So Google is making a concerted effort to do just that by sharing some of the data it's gleaned from the DoubleClick network.
The Competition Commission has changed a ruling on BSkyB’s dominance of the pay-TV film market thanks to the growth of digital services such as LOVEFiLM and Netflix.
In an abrupt u-turn, the CC said that Sky Movies no longer provides Sky with an advantage over its pay-TV rivals.
It reversed a ruling from last year which found that the satellite broadcaster’s deals with major Hollywood studios effectively gave it a monopoly on the market and caused higher prices for consumers.
The other day I eavesdropped as a pretty girl faced the teenage boy seated across from her and sang, “Tonight / We are young / So let’s set the world on fire”.
Frustrated by his blank stare, she said, “Don’t you know the song? It’s from that Chevy commercial”.
If that example doesn’t convince you of the power of music and marketing, nothing will.
