Google’s got a new toy – but what’s next for Wildfire?

Wildfire

Never a business to let the grass grow under its feet, it seems Google has added to its ever-increasing stable with the recent acquisition of social media marketing specialists Wildfire. Founded in 2008, Wildfire has more than 400 employees and manages the social media marketing for more than 16,000 businesses. The company provides software that links directly to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest among others and engages users by targeted ads, promotions, analytics, scheduled messaging, page and content creation and evaluation. The search giant is reported to have splashed a cool $250million on the start-up and is clearly looking to extend its reach into social media campaigning, as well as improve its own targeted advertising as the popularity of social networking grows unchecked. But does the purchase mean Wildfire will lose it’s identity as it’s simply swallowed by the amorphous, omnipresent Google? Recent Acquisitions According to many sources, Google has made on average at least one purchase per week since 2010 and the list now totals around 100 companies – the most high-profile of which, Motorola Mobility, was bought for a reputed $12billion. Other companies taken over by the digital behemoth also include Picasa, YouTube, Android, Picnik and Admeld and…

America’s girlfriend is back after eight years and ready to embrace the digital revolution

Ricki Lake

‘America’s girlfriend’ Ricki Lake is back, and this time she’s taking her chat show online as well as on TV. The new show will air from September 10. The show has alreday been picked up by Tribune stations in New York, Dallas, Denver and Cleveland, while Fox stations have agreed to carry the show in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. The show has also been sold to stations owned by Sinclair, Post Newsweek, Granite, Fisher, titan, Sun Broadcasting, Quincy, new Vision, Journal, Citadel and Gray. The last time we saw Ricki on TV was during Dancing with The Stars, now America’s favourite girl next door looks set to grace monitors everywhere with a new chat show which is using its own social network ‘Friends of Ricki’, to get fans talking and generate material. Could this mean there are some shiny new jobs in the offing for anyone who might be interested in a position on the new and improved Ricki Lake Show? With over 75,000 ‘likers’ on its Facebook page, it certainly seems like people want to get involved and with numbers like that there’s no wonder syndication has proved so popular, a fact which will undoubtedly be pleasing the production…

A New Future For Yahoo? What’s The Deal With Marissa Mayer?

Yahoo

Five chief execs in three years is not a stat to be proud of, but has Yahoo found the answer to its business woes in the shape of new CEO and Google turncoat Marissa Mayer? The turbulence experienced by Yahoo over the past few years looks set to continue a little while longer after the surprise appointment of former Google exec Mayer as its new CEO. While most people could be forgiven for thinking that this time the job might land in the lap of long-suffering interim CEO Ross Levinsohn, it seems the board had other ideas. As Mayer walked in the door, Levinsohn walked out. Without the experience and contact book of Levinsohn its felt that Mayer might struggle to make her mark – particularly as she lacks the advertising know-how of her predecessor and that certainly seems to be where the sector’s headed. Unique and innovative products are great, but you need to make money to develop them and that’s where the advertising dollars count. Industry Experience No one can deny that Mayer has the credentials. She was one of only 20 employees when she joined Google in 1999 as their first female engineer and during her tenure…

Is Ebay a Comeback or Going Away Story?

With an estimated 2012 sales of $8 billion and 90 million downloads of Ebay’s mobile app,  Mobile retailing is one of the fastest growing businesses for Ebay. On the decline for years Ebay’s most promising segments are PayPal payments and mobile retailing.  The conventional wisdom in terms of Internet companies is that once decline sets in in terms of earnings. Ebay seems to be the exception to that rule. Ebay shares hit a peak of $54 in 2004, but by early 2009 its stock was at slightly over $10. Now it’s stock is back trading at more than $40 a share in 2012.  The majority of growth this year came from mobile retailing and PayPal payments.  A significant change in senior leadership also helped the company grow. The company’s website is an online person-to-person trading community online. The company has come a long way since its founding and competes with companies such as Amazon. Ebay has a bright future and recently unveiled a new eCommerce platform called X.commerce, at the Ebay’s developer conference.  More than 4,000 developers were at the event, showing that developers are eager to work for this booming company. Ebay has recently developed some new partnerships with…

What is Xfinity and Why Should I Care?

Comcast

Cable giant Comcast rebranded their TV, internet, phone and home control services two years ago under the name Xfinity to coincide with the digitisation and widespread improvement of their services, including improved internet speeds, HD services and diversified content viewing options. Comcast are the biggest home internet provider and cable operator in the United States, with stakes in many cable networks including NBCUniversal and an operating revenue of over 55 billion as of last year. They are extremely well established and have the biggest share of the media operator market, with over 18 million customers to date. Comcast’s Xfinity covers many services that the company are already well known for providing, which begs the question “why Xfinity?”.  While they have stated that the changes in their services are big enough to justify their re-branding, should we really care? Comcast Confusion A major re-branding effort by any company usually happens when big changes are made to the products and services offered, but in the case of Comcast there has evidently been some confusion. The Xfinity brand was established in 2010 – two years after the project was first introduced under the name “Project Infinity”- and despite roughly $640 million in advertising…
