The driver was insistent: “A woman should not be giving directions.” Despite the customer-service rep’s reassurance that the navigation system in his car wasn’t actually a woman - just a computer with a female voice - the driver (and many others like him) refused to listen. There was only one person for BMW to call for help: Clifford Nass, one of the world’s leading experts on how people interact with technology. After two decades of studying problems like BMW’s GPS system, Microsoft’s Clippy (the most hated animated character of all time), and online evaluations that led people to lie to their laptops, Nass has developed a powerful theory: Our brains can’t fundamentally distinguish between interacting with people and interacting with devices. We will “protect” a computer’s feelings, feel flattered by a brown-nosing piece of software, and even do favors for technology that has been “nice” to us. All without even realizing it. Nass has found that the most powerful strategies for working with people can be learned from watching what succeeds and fails in technology interfaces. If a computer can make friends, build teams, and calm powerful emotions, so can any of us. Nass’s studies reveal: Mixing criticism with praise - a popular tactic for managers - is a destructive method of evaluation. Opposites don’t attract - except when one gradually changes to become more like the other. Flattery works - even when the recipient knows it’s flattery. Team-building exercises don’t build teams - but the right T-shirt can. Misery loves company - but only if the company is miserable, too. Nass’s discoveries push the boundaries of both psychology and technology and provide nothing less than a new blueprint for successful human relationships. 9781596596665 N N ©2010 Clifford Nass, Corina Yen;(P)2010 Gildan Media Corp http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V19FLE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B004V19FLE?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Marketing in the Age of Google: Your Online Strategy IS Your Business Strategy (Unabridged) 22.95 AVAILABLE Marketing in the Age of Google: Your Online Strategy IS Your Business Strategy (Unabridged) Marketing in the Age of Google (Unabridged) Vanessa Fox In the age of Google, your customers are searching.

Will they find you? In today’s searching world, customers turn to online search engines first. Yet many companies simply don’t realize acquiring customers from search engines should be a core business strategy. Instead, they usually focus on narrow goals, such as boosting page rankings. These oversights leave a huge channel for engaging with potential customers largely untapped. Businesses that use data about how people search to inform their product strategy will reach customers before the competition. Businesses that understand the importance of non-ad-based search acquisition will make it central to their marketing mix, and can connect with high-quality customers for long-term growth and success.
