Meet the Connected Consumer – It’s Not Who You Think It Is

September 16th, 2013 by Nicole

The research predicted for years that teens and Millenials will rule social media and online consumerism in a big way.  The predictions were wrong.  Yes, Millenials use social media, but do they drive how social media companies and retailers tailor their services?  No.  The average connected consumers, at 52% are women with an average age of 40.  Why?

Meet the Connected Consumer - Women With a Tablet


Meet the Connected Consumer

“Connected consumers are a social crowd and enthusiastic about shopping. More than three quarters of them are active Facebook users, 60 percent shop via digital or print catalogs, and more than 40 percent say shopping makes them feel happy. “Excited,” “thrifty” and “productive” also top the list of the connected consumer’s shopping emotions.”

•             62-65 percent of connected consumers shop via digital or print catalogs

•             75-78 percent owns a laptop

•             41-45 percent own smartphones

•             81-86 percent use Facebook”


 Meet the Connected Consumer


Another study called these women “Digital Divas”, who are sophisticated shoppers and knowledgeable about the fashion industry when compared to non-divas.  They rely on digital communication tools to learn, read product reviews, and share product purchases and their opinions freely.  These habits lead to shift and insight into new services by retailers and how they may provide better services and products.

Meet the Connected Consumer - Digital Diva


“With social networks at least twice the size of other women’s, Divas wields influence and have the power to make or break a brand, online and off. They don’t suffer fools and won’t go for gimmicks. What makes a brand most digitally savvy in Divas’ eyes isn’t just a Facebook profile, an app or a game. The brands winning with Divas are those creating or curating the best content and serving it up in contextually relevant ways, regardless of the category in which they compete. The brands Divas talk and Tweet about are those connecting the digital dots—inspiring, organizing and streamlining their shopping missions, not getting in the way of them.”

Tech Insight: How We Use Twitter

The Research Is In:  How We Use Twitter


How We Use Twitter - Twitter Birds

There has been an explosion of research on the behavior of Twitter users, what and why they tweet, what gets retweeted, and the influencers in the ecosystem.  How we interact on social media has a huge impact on our influence and social media capital.  Twitter is a network of users who are connected to one another via relationships formed when one user “follows” another user, exposing themselves to the messages tweeted by the people they follow. Follower count is important on Twitter and what content you tweet has a significant impact on your audience growth.


To build your social capital, keep this in mind:

1.    Expressing negative sentiment has an adverse effect on follower gain.

2.    Tweeting informational content attracts followers thirty times more than the tweeting ‘meformer’ content (those who share content about themselves all the time), which deters growth.

3.    Know the language – Pinterest language is use, look, want, need.  Twitter language is immediate actions – now, read, today, tonight, time, watching, see, going, etc.

Who are the major influencers on Twitter and how do they use Twitter?

·         Celebrities pay attention to other celebrities and they rarely retweet others information.

·         The media follow the media and distribute information.

·         Bloggers are the major contributors to the twitter ecosystem.  They are the influencers of retweeting and distributors of content.

Here is Twitter’s 10 most-popular people for 2013:

1. Justin Bieber (@justinbieber, 40,302,602 followers)

Are You Tech Fan Wedged In A World Apple iPhones, iPads and MacBooks?

October 22nd, 2012 by Christen

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it many times before.  Apple has single-handedly become a successful company because of it’s lifestyle appeal to tech – not because of superior products. As a matter of fact, you may notice more of it’s competitors taking a few cues from the widely successful company but appealing to the novice and sometimes tech snobbish users of today.  Have you ever asked yourself if Apple users really think differently?  Or have they been brainwashed instead?  Apple fanboys and fangirls everywhere have jumped at each and every new product released by Apple, not because of it’s superiority in the marketplace but simply because it’s manufactured by Apple.

You’d be surprised on the places where people get their phones stolen.  Then again, bars and nightclubs are not among the top places that people lose their phones. You should be most careful about dropping your device in coffee houses, pizza and church, among others.
