hunchIndecisive?

Hunch.com hopes you are – because it’s relying on your questions to build a community of answer-seeking users.

Inc. magazine recently profiled the company in its latest issue – and asked other business owners how Hunch can get the word out about its service. The company has benefited from steady positive buzz, but it hasn’t yet launched a formal marketing campaign. No sweat. Five entreprenuers offer different suggestions on how to put Hunch on the top of the heap.

The Good & Bad of the 'Twitter Effect'

bruno-movie-01Way back in April, we published a post titled “Is Tweeting for the Birds?” That was when Twitter was just becoming the phenomenon it is now – thanks to lots of press from celebrity endorsers.

Our open-ended question to you then – despite the star-studded brouhaha over the brand – was if you thought Twitter would become a relevant and reliable tool for marketing businesses on the Internet.

It seems – and our apologies to the naysayers – that the answer is yes.

Several months have passed since Ashton Kutcher and CNN famously duked it out for the most Twitter followers (Ashton won) – and the celebrity endorsements have consistently subsided (and, in fact, some of those same celebrities who sang Twitter’s praises have threatened to turn on the microblogging service if it went through with a rumored Twitter-based TV program).

Interactive Marketing – Is That Really Where It’s At?

iStock_000000307584XSmallIt shouldn’t come as a shock that more and more marketers are taking their advertising efforts online. We’ve chronicled this shift fairly frequently, like in this post on the increase in spending in social network marketing.

But just because marketers are increasing their budgets for interactive advertising, that doesn’t mean they’re making money.

The good news is at least they think they will. And positive thinking has power, people!

According to the “2009 Promo Interactive Marketing Survey” from PROMO magazine, more than one-third of marketers believe that interactive marketing ROI will be more profitable than traditional marketing – such as TV, radio and outdoor – this year.

Take a look at this bar graph from eMarketer, which details the results of the survey:
