Andy Beal initiated a post over at marketing pilgrim asking his audience if they thought Google would be the next Microsoft. There are some good responses so far but one gentlemen in particular thought that Google is headed down that same road. I really donâ€™t see the similarity other then the sole fact that they both dominate what they do. To me that isnâ€™t enough however to say Google IS MSN. The strikingly clear difference is that Google does not force you, Google does not inhibit others, Google does not charge $$ for every single feature they come out with. MSN on the other hand since day one has charged ridiculous amounts of money for its software.
In an attempt to help thwart spyware/malware sites from harming users Google has implemented a feature where they warn the user of such a thing. Check out the screen shot below to see it in action.
Noticed a post today by Jim Boykin that had a great article on some of his client interaction. It put into perspective how important detailed reports are when instructing your client of where there money is being spent, and the effects of the campaign. The better they are, the more willing the client is to increase or prolong the relationship.
Thanks for sharing this Jim. Click here for the example report.
