Gilbane Advisor 6-3-20 — AMP life, what VR, platforms, skills

New page experience focus for a better web

The open web has always been critical to Google’s business, which is why AMP was both puzzling and controversial. AMP’s faster page display was a clear benefit, but the forced and limited format made user experiences worse and was a burden with a questionable upside and loss of control for publishers. This post from Google’s Webmaster Central blog on upcoming search ranking changes has some welcome news. In addition to focusing more on web page experience [emphasis added]…

As part of this update, we’ll also incorporate the page experience metrics into our ranking criteria for the Top Stories feature in Search on mobile, and remove the AMP requirement from Top Stories eligibility. Google continues to support AMP, and will continue to link to AMP pages when available.  

Google page experience

This is good for the open web, web user experience, and publishers. Google will obviously still compete with publishers as it continues to add richer results to its search pages. But their advantage will not necessarily be unfair, and a Google walled garden should be less of a concern. It is of course also good for Google as it heads into more serious calls for regulation. Read More

SaaS companies, app platforms, and product integrations

Scott Brinker has been making a case for “app platforms” as part of a model for understanding existing landscapes comprised of large platforms and extremely large numbers of “specialist apps”. In this post he looks at some research that ‘examined integrations, public APIs, and “app centers” offered by the 1,000 fastest growing SaaS companies from 2019’ by product category. Scott’s discussion and the detailed research he links to are worth a look by market and business strategists. Read More

The VR winter

Benedict Evans…

The problem is, we haven’t worked out what you would do with a great VR device that isn’t a game (or some very niche industrial application), and it’s not clear that we will. We’ve had five years of experimental projects and all sorts of content has been tried, and nothing other than games has really worked. … Pulling all of these threads together, the issue I circle around is not just that we don’t have a ‘killer app’ for VR beyond games, but that we don’t know what the path to getting one might be. Read More

How to make a business case for voice and chatbot experiences

Gilbane’s Digital Experience Conference

Washington DC April 28 – 29, Workshops May 1

attendees taking notes

For all the promise of voice and chatbot applications, widespread adoption has been limited to fairly simple use cases, and even then getting the usability and appropriate scale right is a learning experience. This shouldn’t be surprising given the dependence on natural language processing. Nonetheless, the potential for well-designed voice and chatbot experiences is large. Erin Abler can help you understand why some organizations have been successful, and how you can get started with a business case. 

B205. Making the business case for voice and chatbot experiences

Conversational voice and chatbot experiences are rapidly becoming the new norm in our houses, cars, and even some workplaces. Getting your news, weather, and driving directions is now as easy as asking for them aloud. But if you’re wondering what the business case is, you’re not alone. For many product owners, strategists, and marketers, it’s still hard to envision a viable way to get started. We work with clients every day who’ve taken on this exact challenge and found success. Through real-world examples, this presentation will show you how to identify and pursue the right opportunity for your next conversational design project. We’ll cover why people choose conversational interactions over other digital experiences, how to uncover legitimate use cases for your business, and how to avoid common stumbling blocks in the design and development process. You’ll walk away knowing how to identify a compelling conversational experience for your brand, and be ready to navigate the challenges and opportunities of working with emerging conversational interfaces.

Tuesday, April 30: 4:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Connections are core to digital experience initiatives at every level. At the top, your organization needs connections with customers that are genuine, consistent, on-target, and fast. Delivering this requires that connections with partners, and employees, have similar qualities and smooth supporting processes. And technology systems also need to be connected in ways that enhance the experiences of each of your audiences. Jeff Cram will help you get a handle on how all this connects!

A106. Creating Connected Experiences

Stop acquiring more marketing technology and start better connecting it to your digital customer experiences. This session helps you realize the full potential of your existing martech investment by better aligning it to your customer experience strategy and digital execution. Drawing from decades of experience leading complex, digital experience initiatives, Cram and team share practical frameworks and models to find and fix the cracks in your digital customer experience and better connect your marketing technology to support the customer journey.
