Advertisers should focus on the future or social communications platform

a new social communication application is popular, and popularity continues to expand the scope of; As a result, send text messages this way of social communication is out of date. From Kik to Line, from Viber to WhatsApp, social communication application is designed for young people to social media, so to speak. With the continuous development of telecommunications applications, it will become an important part of social media.

application in Asia’s most widely used communication

Line and micro believed the two telecommunications applications have been very popular in China and other Asian countries. In view of this, north American and European telecommunications applications developers are trying to catch up. WeChat, rice chat, letter, ‘smart phones and other mobile devices is the most common and one of the most popular applications, at least in China, India, and other Asian countries.

both for customers and advertisers, social communication applications market prospects are very broad. Of these applications is mainly affected by the younger generation, also said that they have their own a new generation of consumers. And, the popularity of the application is more and more high, advertisers have been unable to ignore.

application for free, and you pay with their own data

many applications on mobile devices are free, but is want to charge for some specific projects, such as related to personal or public interest (you send information there are corresponding to charge), application charge remind pops out. Advertisers can take advantage of this advertising model to find the right customers, users in the process of using the free application, will also feel very humanized – although the human nature is based on business purpose.

this streamlined, removable centered design concept can even prompted several related technical renovation of old. Qr code, for example, it is easy to meet the service requirements of a lot with words and images. Increased and the service network chat reality, people in the use of communication and social media, use a lot of network buzzwords, suggesting that social communication application in the new communication mode is an indispensable part of.

to be reckoned with opponents: Google rise again in the field of telecommunications applications

in the rumor about Google, most attention should be this one: Google will launch a communications application recently, but the customer does not need to set up Google account can be used. If so, given the other services are some input your account information to use, so this is Google made a major breakthrough in the company. However, Google is based on the principle of service to the user’s activities can be traced to a great extent information – this is one of the Google advertising.

as Facebook acquired WhatsApp, the function of the service is being developed to get incisively and vividly. May this service in the industry has been around forever, but now it is very likely is free to use, this is on the Line even WhatApp (annual fee charged by a relatively small) poses a great threat. So it would take this free service from apple still far behind? Anyway, once the communication in the application of the two giants began to implement free services, the beneficiaries are customers, the end result is to make the application more humanized, become a customer friendly communications applications.

Line is one of the most popular with the customers of mobile communications applications, the issue of it at first, its potential customers are likely to reach 1 billion. So, under normal circumstances, any smart marketers want as a customer base – especially when their target customers are people teens and twenties, or even the so-called “generation” in one thousand (people born between 1980 and 1995).

the Line from became the only popular customer communication application is far from it, to achieve this goal, for the most part will depend on your target customers and common customers. And, you have to bear in mind that the people have conformity, such as their tourism always love to relatives and friends have been to place, in which communications applications, the conformity psychology is more obvious.

so how do individual or company began to develop mobile application or social media communication application? It begins with first to understand a new communication model, this model not only contains the communication need SMS terms, acronyms and emoticons and other digital shorthand method; Also includes stickers, sometimes is a dynamic stickers, sometimes is static sticker, but usually these stickers with a consistent style of art; If the two together, the communication mode of the service function will be very strong.

although telecommunications applications has been very popular, but it is still in the stage of development. In the New Year, pay attention to communication application in the related areas of social development is a social network can establish a new social pattern of the key.



The Internet sports market will be the next gold mine

2014 witnessed in the Internet some big acquisitions in the field of household, this year we have seen on the iPhone “bend door” event trigger a war of words, the AI picture processing tools and Microsoft XiaoNa and amazon released home voice assistant hardware products Echo become public hot together; Kim kardashian can be downloaded from the app store.

however, review it over here, here is my outlook for 2015.

game market “media operations”

in the past few years, we can see that Wall Street has been the evaluation for high-growth Internet game company stock, this is because the company has a very fast game user adoption rate and the ability to earn income from core users. However, the mobile gaming industry has grown up. Those who belong to the gaming industry in the sunny days, and countless days of money, has been away from us. In 2015, the game industry will focus on execution.

with the development of game companies mature, with their traditional media companies have striking similarities. Is the same, they also pay attention to brand construction, accumulation of intellectual property rights and large-scale copyright permission. Is because the game company the focal point, the market will need to redefine the game company is: a new generation of media companies.

the United States can be seen from the east to the Asian market as the direction guidance. Japan, for example, mobile social gaming company Gumi IPO in Tokyo, and with it in multiple media businesses on the strength of the received $900 million in market value. Game companies will continue to take control of your own destiny, and began to reassess their market positioning, in order to reproduce this level of success in the United States.

small entrepreneurial firms began to integration, building common ecological

the so-called “killer application” will continue to be elusive, as more companies realize that in the early or middle stage, they can only in their respective fields to solve one or two core issues. Entrepreneurial firms began to ask ourselves, if they only have a sparkle, or whether they can hold up a real business.

in order to survive, the early or middle stage of the company will begin to unite, to provide users with more comprehensive products and services, because they know they can’t cover the user every aspect of life. There is no doubt that we will see some of market integration, but the emphasis will be benefit the end user of the joint venture and cooperative relations. Our mindset is to shift from “create or purchase” for “create or cooperation”.

this change we have seen in 2014. Uber company and company cooperation, for example, their cooperation let users come home after a DJ. Another Snapchat and Square, they launched a Snapcash transfer function. In cooperation benefit most will be those that have bright spots or good products but lack of market penetration to the public means of company. To all technology companies in the proposal: find three with their complementary startup, and then begin to discuss cooperation.

Internet sports market will be the next gold

science and technology industry to predict how no curve, it has a double meaning. More bold prediction is that the sports industry will be born under a golden boy of science and technology. I don’t mean a sports team, but a supporting platform for service providers or cater to the sports industry.

think, sports provides cover vast audience biggest opportunities, they all do the same thing at the same time. Add like Levi’s stadium on the networking stadium official demonstration and explanation. Technology companies in the aspects of hardware and software of disruptive possibilities are endless.

application in sports venues of geographical fence location technology offers plenty of opportunities for science and technology company, with a group of high quality and passion of the audience. Advertisers are they come into contact with the audience of the highest quality. You can see what they bought, what eat, where they sat, and so on. If a tech company can figure out how to improve field sports viewing experience, it will be richly rewarded.

virtual sports games market will enter a new stage of development, the industry daily competition will intensify. Like FanDuel company and Draft company will continue to expand. And like Fanatics sporting goods online retailers will leap into the threshold of the billion dollar club.

13. Smart watches blasting (pit) (pa)

to be honest, this year there are a few smart watches Fried hot? 2013, intelligent watches have made some interesting attempt, but also should grasp the opportunity to capture the market this year. Google attaches great importance to this field, especially for wearable devices built a new platform for the intelligent operating system Android Wear.

companies such as samsung, MOTOROLA, LG and SONY, in order to cater to the tastes of consumers, has launched smart watches.

however, the same problems always exist: the heavy hardware and software and disappointing battery life. This problem is let the consumer to spend a bit hurt. (the nut smart watches can standby for five days, by that alone can kill foreign counterparts. And it is the world’s first round smart watches “)

the key body feeling for the Xbox experience equipment device, now it’s easy to buy one. It’s easy to understand why consumers to a new generation device (with the Xbox One bundle) attitude is a little lukewarm.

today, consumers tend to buy without access Xbox One, so the price is more cheaper, so Microsoft is likely to end in the bulk of the investment on it.

10. Aereo has become a slaughter the lamb

the trouble is that Gett to Uber also made a similar charges, it thinks Uber adopted a “denial of service (DoS)” type of attack means, and, will the driver of the opportunity to poach Gett Uber. In this case, Uber admits that its strategy “may be a bit too aggressive.

Uber instead of shaping the image of good, in November, is one of the executives showed that the company will use its $1 million to get the reporter for Uber negative reputation, this made the image of the Uber become more deadly. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said executives Emil Michael’s comments “lack of leadership consciousness, lack of humanization, also with the company’s value ideal creed deviating”. Even so, Michael is still a member of the Uber, because Kalanick think “wrong people or can learn lessons from the mistakes of the”.

for the executives of big mouth, is an obvious lesson: don’t be a reporter to attend the dinner talk about fighting the reporter’s plan. You can try it.

Us investment Banks from the west into word, PPT or PPT, I do, an analyst at the first year, the main job is to call people, arrange, often do is particularly ineffective work. After 20 years, our company, an analyst at children are children of first-class university, our company still is the same thing, call spend half of the time, date, spend the other half time to do a lot of busywork, they just take tens of dollars each year to do these things.

when I was into the line Wall Street IPO underwriting fees are 7% to 9%, after 20 years later, the underwriting fees today or were 7%, 9%, and every time after IPO pricing home by the time distribution, we played, not to say that the price is high, but on the basis of each investment Banks at the core of the customer as he fight for resources, when I was into the line of 1994 to be this way, after 20 years, is like this. In 1994 for the first time to the nyse’s visit, to see the nyse a lot of people, a bunch of people wearing small vest in the gesture of I can’t understand, after 20 years or so, a bunch of people wearing small ma3 jia3 gesturing. At that time the size of the PE only hundreds of millions of dollars, is divided into 20%, the management fee is 2%, now are billions of assets management, but with the management fee is 2%, divided into or 20%.

so on the one hand, we see a lot of here let a person particularly excited with Internet financial transition, in the Internet to do a lot of innovation, but back in traditional investment banking, 20 years, almost no change, still as before, this is my confusion, are we in this industry is Joe is in the world outside? Our world is not influenced by the Internet? Our industry will not be a new business model subversion?

I’ve been asking myself this question, I have a few specific problems, the first investment bank still needed in the future? There is said at the beginning of investment Banks to solve the problem of liquidity in the market, can help solve a capital market allocation problem. In the Internet s, when the information is becoming more and more peer Xu Zewei also said just now, when a value is only hundreds of thousands of yuan of a person, can with worth billions of people, enjoy the same information, or even close to the same service, whether also need to institutions such as investment Banks play such a role? This is the first question I asked.

your second question, there are the investment Banks, investment Banks are using in big trading platform from Taiwan, the world’s largest trading platform is exchange, China is China’s Shanghai and shenzhen stock exchange, the nyse, nasdaq, still has a lot of otc, there are many do fixed-income trading, this is a platform of investment Banks, we are on the platform to participate in the investment bank’s players. So the so-called exchange really suited for deep things? Today on the nyse’s $500 billion market value of the company is the largest company, the minimum value of the company, the company is the millions of dollars value of the two people to be in the same market? The market also can solve their needs? This is my second question.

the third question, since the financial crisis, said everyone in financial regulation, financial risk control problems, that I also wonder, if all things in the same market, how to solve the regulation problem? This may be a solution. Anyway, these are all I think about some of the problems, I don’t have the answer, phoenix me please come here today, original want to let me share my thoughts, but frankly, I confused more and more in these two years.

although there is no answer, but I have a few basic ideas, don’t think is especially mature, I think first of all, today of the entire financial system, especially we are engaged in the financial system, used in the financial world forever is divided into two pieces, one is the mechanism of market, is a retail market, why want to two piece? Because the agency is to rectify, so have the advantage of information, have the advantage of scale, there are a variety of advantages, retail is that piece of personal things. I think first of all in our institutions to the market, to voting behavior is on behalf of the agency market, I think the world today, this system today, there are too many small, inefficient exist too much is not reasonable, so it should be changed. This is the first.

second, it did not change, because the financial is a public goods, finance is a regulated goods, so we did not be Internet disruptive technology and the industry reform, to a large extent is the rules of the game today, or regulators, in protecting the industry. Without an industry of political influence over Wall Street, more than us investment bank, so our industry is largely unregulated, protection by the just cause have today this business model, as of today, from the world of the old old Morgan, underwriting fees is 7 to 9 points, to this day to the United States listed fees should be 7 to 9 points, to a great extent we are protected by regulators.

but the third point, this is unreasonable, if we do this industry to subvert the real rules of the game and rewrite inside, can promote the development of the whole system. So, I think that the earth is round, so it must be moving, share with you my outlook for the future investment Banks today, I am looking forward to some extent is ten years later, one day like me this kind of traditional investment bankers, it didn’t eat for rice, lost his job, I was a dinosaur, and maybe at that time the world is a better world. Thank you very much.


Foreign players in the eyes of the Chinese mobile game industry: winter is coming!

on the subway, bus, on the table… Everyone in the play mobile phones, China mobile game downloads nearly crazy. However, few paid for players in. Compared to the PC game at marvelous spectacles and immersive experience, players are not willing to the consumption on the mobile phone games. China mobile game market winds in winter will come “.

since apple released the iPhone in the early, everyone is more or less have predicted, mobile game is the trend of the future, especially in emerging markets in Asia – China. The core players did not even own a computer or video games. Experts have predicted that in five years ago, the fate of the PC game will like dinosaurs die, and the mobile games will came to the throne. For entrepreneurs, but also a new cash cow.

objectively speaking, there is no denying the fact that mobile games really got a huge development. In fact, everyone has a smart phone more or less will spend a little time to play mobile phone games, people like me have the games as a core function of the smart phone. I remember in the smartphone before the advent of those dark days, when I sit bus couldn’t play Jetpack Joyride (rocket flying), only bored manner looked out the window.

but I’m still a bit of doubt, in the long run mobile games will really for developers in the ancient countries, distributors to bring a steady stream of profits. And I observed that more and more evidence that mobile gaming market is not so make money they often label.

Numbers don’t lie

in fact, for most developers, China mobile game market no profit at all. Chinese film and television (sarft) released a report in the summer of this year, which reflects the situation is very serious: 92% of China’s mobile games lose money; The remaining 8% is just balance. Part of the report pointed out that only about 2% of China’s mobile game can get profit.

the situation for the development of mobile games run for start-up companies. But for the Chinese Internet giant, this probability is still acceptable. They have the ability to shoulder the cost of the 20 different mobile game development, and look forward to a game or two of which can be only accumulate enough audience and make money. But now it seems that even these big companies also seems to be the financing problems. Sina tech blog mouse in a recent blog, points out that qihoo 360 revenue from mobile game fell nearly 17.2%, while tencent to date there has been little improvement in the field of mobile games.

even if China mobile game downloads go crazy, but it does not produce as much profit as people think. Think of it, at the end of 2013, China’s mobile Internet population has nearly 500 million people, the figure is computer more than twice the number of broadband Internet access. But figures released from computer games, mobile games still far short of. PC games in China, including page swim and swim together, a total of create a more than $10 billion in revenue. The mobile game makes less than $2 billion in revenue. Even in 2013, the game is the most commonly used Chinese smartphone applications, is still so cruel reality.

people flocking to download games, and play a lot, but just don’t give money.

is the fault of the population of?

maybe the Numbers above you got a fright, but actually I’m not surprised. I play mobile phone games, game, including China, have been playing. But I really don’t remember when in these games spent money to buy any purchase, in addition to occasionally look at the ads don’t seem to be the conference brought what revenue to developers. At the same time on PC Steam and tencent LOL, I have enough. But for tencent ma, I might have the first child.

part of the problem may be caused by the particularity of the Chinese market: is for mobile game free value-added model of extreme enthusiasm. I can’t imagine any place on earth will like here. Chinese players are often complain that China mobile game developers who too much of a good thing, hope that through the test user tolerance and other way persecuted users pay cost. And the user’s response, is clearly without paying.

but on the other hand, the answer to this question may be more extensive. Mobile games are to fragmentation, XiuXianHua development. This is reasonable, after all, a touch screen mobile phone screen is too small, not suitable for to create immersive feeling, such as loading too grand scene, or provide most hardcore games need control rod module. It also makes users less likely to spend money on it, because the game is fragile, and fleeting, eventually to replace. For most people, mobile games, not something to connect its identity, but just a tool to kill time on a subway. Produce stands in stark contrast to this is PC players often can see yourself in the game, I think it’s two games pay enthusiasm for different reasons, is also a two games income difference is so great.

I also want to say a anecdotes, not accurate data, but also can explain and some problems. My wife and brother-in-law are Chinese, they are my chat very good samples. My wife does not think of myself as a game player, but she’s on the phone with a lot of China mobile games, and often play. This spring, she is a little bit addicted to the game, even spent a lot of time to play the game like candy crush saga. But she not spend a penny on the mobile games. Her brother, see yourself as a gamer, and is a big fan of Dota 2. I am sure he purchased within the game, Internet cafes consumption spent a lot of money.

the winds in winter to

all of these are not want to say what’s the problem with mobile games, mobile games or China do not make money, is not the case. But I think think mobile games will be instead of the “traditional” point of view is too naive, and we may go to China mobile game for a period of relatively cold.

unless someone can come up with a way to make mobile game players to spend money like core players on the PC game, otherwise, I think, PC game will continue to dominate the market.


Get rid of the inherent bias industry, mobile games will become the new “core”

mobile game industry is in full swing now, quite a few people have agreed that it is the “core” gaming industry, to see the senior consultant for game Tadhg Kelly is how to say it. Tadhg Kelly is a senior consultant in the field of play, freelance designer, blog, What Games Are “the founding of the designers.

let’s discuss the problem that “Angle”, people’s understanding of the game industry is usually a one-sided, they often only according to their own game platform as the core, so as to deduce the everything. More and more people are think so and together they form a kind of subculture.

but not all of the subculture is right, for example, most of the game of journalists and YouTuber in that game and computer game is on the question of “core” game is divided, the other (Facebook games, online games, mobile games) is viewed as a leisure and entertainment.

this psychological game industry pattern has meet the media and the developers of the desire for a long time, you go to any game sites can be seen in their dynamic. Literally, for example, Gamespot would headlines were injected “PS4” for a long time, “the Wii U new according to the article,” these are line along the development of the gaming platform. Not only that, this also is those who support the E3 expo site most of the content, as a big news organizations to spread the Gospel of the game.

this “core” thinking mode has just become a practice game grow. Long long ago, games consoles and computers has been continually in the competition for the player to eyeball, players and subculture of self-identification is around them. This passage wants to tell us is that video games have taken over the world. Game industry even than the film industry prosperity, everyone is a gamer. Maybe so, if they don’t let the 150 million “takeover” happen, maybe “core” players might in the past 10 years, gradually developed into a group. They like to hear their master media universe, but actually they are not.

look at the impact on the PS4 are other reports of a new generation of games consoles, game media was excited to see this news will be. Games from many journalists and SONY have ambiguous already a long time, crazy, when they are looking forward to the PS3 issue when it issued, they found that crazy beyond their imagination, so they will continue to do so. In the game industry, this is the ups and downs of tolkien type game strong evidence of enterprise development. SONY (solon) has again and again on the industry (realm) throne (but SONY pay a lot of money to get there).

however, as I said in my Twitter, when you see the apple sold 10 million iphones in a weekend, every quarter sold 1200-14 million, 13.5 million, the figure is good enough? You can also look at samsung, frankly speaking, they sold number once madness. Even Microsoft Surface also reached nearly $1 billion in sales. In contrast, the Xbox One only sold 3 million units last year.

now I know that many of the “core” game fans laugh at those who buy mobile phones and tablet, cannot become the real “game players”. Although those can play mobile device can sell hundreds of millions a year, but the game culture center is the so-called “core” game. The situation looks more like a science fiction.

, according to a report of Newzoo 2015 mobile game industry will be in terms of income than game machine industry. Yes, you didn’t listen to wrong! A small game application (it may be paid, but more is free of charge) to bring the game industry has a long history, large bowl off the throne. It also don’t finish calculate, mobile game industry in 2017 will also with revenue growth of 30%, giving more established PC game in the shade.

when you think that involved money is amazing, but its influence is the most striking. Video games and computer games are usually between $40 to $60, this requires players to work hard to earn more money. Mobile games, by contrast, is a astronomical fee of $5, usually is $2. And, “hardcore” also need to use the equivalent of mobile game players to play the game, and 30 times as much money to every once in a while to update the gaming devices.

when mobile games are everywhere now, whether we can also say video games and computer games is the “core”? We should think about this sentence? Mobile games will not slow down. Unknowable suffering it is not a bubble, it will eventually return to reason and have loyal players, it has experienced the high Renaissance, stagnation, exploitation and a few times. However, people still crazy to download the mobile application, their tastes have never changed. I would be happy to announced that mobile game is the core of the now.

it can against the analogy and film and television, cell phones and as alternative film TV did not produce, “core” may be expensive, that can be seen everywhere. But I don’t agree with this view. In film, TV mode, the user to choose between them is often see his mood. This is different from the game, because the players need to pay money to buy the game platform. This difference is like liked music and high-end music hardware, this is a more difficult choice.

as a result, the old “core” become the new “experts”. When the old subculture in once narrow tracks found their position, host game won the recognition of the mainstream. It’s also one of the mobile game is now facing. Have to do now is to make mobile game development and publishing more artistic and creative. As I mentioned last week, HBO show mobile culture.

this change and its potential mining brought many problems to the developer. One question is whether the mobile game is setting up a large number of new “core” players (seems to be so) – people who can say was gaming. Another question is whether we need to find a suitable media industry, to start around mobile games. This is a very strange question today, but I still have to say it again, it is largely “Angle” problem. We think this is strange because we haven’t see that coming.

but the third question is whether mobile games will become a bridge to reverse the game industry bias. If I was a woman in the game, I really want to ask if I know the devil is there, if I still in situ don’t move (as men in the game, in fact, I also will ask so)? I will disturb their conservative views and old gaming platform, or looking at a brand new start? Steam in the age of people really care about the iPhone or Android users?

as I said at the beginning, this is a “Angle” problem. When Gamergate around looking for regeneration method, didn’t find anything but reveals the core, the quality of the old is disgusting and unbearable. It is smaller than it looks, demand more and more expensive. When mobile games become the new core, new games and with stand the gossip?
