Truth be told, social media is here to stay. Almost 95% of all online traffic goes through one social media platform or another. This means, more and more people are falling into the various target markets through this medium. That being said, marketing through social media, as effective as it is, can get a healthy boost when integrated with other forms of marketing.
One such form of marketing is email marketing. This method of creating awareness has been around for well over a decade now and it has proven itself a worthy avenue for generating both viable leads as well as conversions. Therefore, integrating social media marketing and email marketing is not only pragmatic, but it is highly effective too.

If everything stays on the web and you never get to touch, feel or see anything it just isn’t as much fun. That’s one of the reasons why the web to print industry is still a hot one and will continue to be going by the rate at which everything else is moving online. Earlier, we referred to a statistic that’s worth talking about: The web to print industry is pegged at $868 million by 2017 according to a report by Global Industry Analysis, Inc.
You might be forgiven to think that the print industry has been going through a dramatic recession of some sort. For a while, this could be true. The print industry is getting exciting too. Richard A. D’Aveni of HBR points out how 3-D printing is going to change the world. No, we aren’t talking about 3D printing here yet.
We’d, however, want to point out why you should design your business cards yourself:

It's simple: the BYOD work environment is the future of industry – business, marketing, technical and financial. In fact, the philosophy behind this movement is so prevalent that the old adage "The future is now" may be the most apt way of describing the BYOD phenomenon. And that is because 62 percent of businesses already allow or support BYOD policies.
Suffice to say, that number will only increase as the benefits of distributed information become clearer and the ever increasing sales of tablets and smart phones put suitable mobile devices into the hands of more and more people.
This change represents a sort of paradigm shift. As with the introduction of computers to the workplace or machines to the factory, this movement has the potential to fundamentally alter how business is conducted. Gone are the days of employees relying on their employers for everything that they need to complete their duties. So too of the concept that work can only be accomplished between an eight-hour window in the middle of the day – BYOD changes all of this.

There are several tools out there for tracking your website's data, including how much traffic it gets, where the traffic comes from, and other types of statistics. Google Analytics is by far the most widely used website analysis tool. Offered by search engine behemoth Google, the tool has more than 80 percent of the market share, and it is used on around 55 percent of the 10,000 most popular websites.
What Is Google Analytics? A Background:Google Analytics is essentially the descendant of Urchin on Demand, which was developed by Urchin Software Corp. Google acquired the company -- and by extension, the software -- in April 2005. Seven months later, Google introduced its version of Urchin, which was eventually discontinued on March 28, 2012. Since 2006, Google Analytics has been available to all website owners, including those who do not use the company's advertising program, which is called Google AdWords.

Remember when video games were big blocks of pixels and consoles ran on 16-bit processors? Sure, back in 1993 smacking away at our controllers to gruesomely decapitate our opponent in Mortal Kombat in a triumphant display of gory graphics was indeed fun. Well, most of it was due to the fact that squirting blood and exploding intestines was a new thing back then. Think of that as the era before HTML5.
Now think of how much modern games have evolved since then - Battlefield 4, Skyrim, GTA V and the lot - consider this the era of HTML5. Now tell me, would you really want to go back to 16-bit graphics? This is what HTML5 is all about.
Since this article is not about the ins and outs of HTML5 the above paragraph is all the explanation you’ll get! Now, let’s get right down to it. Here are the top 5 HTML5 websites for 2013, enjoy!
1.) Audi #OneMillionReasons:Razorfish Germany in collaboration with production company Minivegas teamed up with Audi to unleash probably the greatest interactive web experience of the decade! The jist of this HTML5 site is its 3D function wherein, through the use of WebGL technology, an Audi R8 is virtually generated in the form of a million spherical particles.
Not blown away, are you? But what if i told you that every single sphere contains a message from fans all over the world stating why they love Audi. Oh, so now you’re blown away. The German luxury automobile brand proves that its prowess not only lies with the engine under its hood!
2.) Museum Of Mario:At some point when reminiscing of nostalgic pixelated video games you played decades ago, you will remember Mario and his quest to save the princess. All i remember is how I never could! Whether she never really wanted to be rescued or Mario was just an italian pervert, I will never know… until IGN decided to make an HTML5 site all about Mario!
Built in collaboration with Intel’s HTML5 Hub, Museum of Mario tackles around 30 years of gaming history for probably the greatest game ever sold. Going way back to the 8-bit era of video games, the website allows you to explore and interact through the vintage versions of the game to the modern ones. It’s simply fascinating when the most high tech form of programming meets it’s past to make something great. It’s like meeting your old self and playing video games together - which is probably what we’d all do should that really happen.
3.) Dreams Of Black:Different tastes call for different genres in music, but it’s not the kind of melody that you listen to that makes you love a certain track; it’s the ecstatic emotion that it makes you feel. I call this a journey through sound waves and imagination. Someone else calls it 3 Dreams of Black.
Dreams of Black is in an interactive HTML5 website created by a bunch of intelligent people (too many to mention) to showcase the music of Norah Jones, Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s album entitled Rome. The site uses WebGL to create a world that sort of simulates what a person’s mind goes through as the music plays. The goal is to make the user feel and experience music as it plays rather than simply listening. It’s definitely an eye-opening form of visual art.
4.) Soul Reaper:The only downside to a comic book is that there aren’t any trailers to get you all hyped up about it. As many avid comic book readers are also movie fanatics who know their stuff inside out one has to wonder, what if these two modes of storytelling melded together? Now, I personally have not heard anyone complain about comic books not having trailers, but what if they did? What if comic book reading could evolve into something more interactive, more theatre-like? What if someone with an epic voice could narrate as you went through your favorite comic series? What if… all of this already existed?
Soul Reaper is another interactive HTML5 site that literally *kapows* me out cold - because of its awesomeness, that is. Graphic novels have never been as “graphic” as this and my internal reading voice never as epic! You’re going to have to check it out by yourself to get a grip of what I’m trying to say because I’d have to make my own epic trailer if I had to explain it to you in writing. Wait a minute - what if I could… nah!
5.) Diesel Shoes, Bags And Accessories:Girls love shopping as much as they love browsing through the internet about the things that they want to shop about. It’s a never ending cycle of things that men won’t ever really understand. Men are visual beings by nature, when they see something they like they take it. Some spend jail time for it but you get my point. Diesel has devised a way to intertwine these two very different traits of men and women by putting them into their website.
If you love shopping, seeing high definition images of things you want to shop for or being able to interact online with belts and shoes, then you will be breathe taken by Diesel’s HTML5 based website. Check it out!
Interesting isn’t it - HTML5? I urge you to try to browse on your own to find other great sites that showcase this new technology. Heck, if you can create one of your own be sure to send me a link! I hope you guys had a good time browsing through the list, see you!

Cloud Storage is a milestone in the world of mobile and portable data storage capabilities. Its importance can be further strengthened when you consider how unsafe conventional storage devices like USBs, and hard drives can be; whenever there are any virus onslaughts, voltage fluctuations, or any other hazard, chances are these devices will malfunction and you’ll lose all your data. With USB sticks there is an added chance that you might misplace them, or they might get stolen; in either case, your data get lost.

Although the term ‘A/B Testing’ makes’ this particular concept for testing your marketing strategies sound complex and intimidating, it is actually quite simple to use and it is definitely effective when done correctly.
What Is A/B Testing?The best way to think of this testing process is to liken this to the comparative lab experiments you used to do in high school. You get two plants of the same species and you do everything the same for them except for one thing. This single difference between them is what you’ll observe in order to determine if it contributes to the plant’s growth or not.
