Today In Communication History

On this date in 1943, German occupation orders all radio receivers in the Netherlands to be surrendered.
On this date in 1945, Radio transmissions begin again in East Berlin under Soviet military control from the former Nazi broadcasting centre (Haus des Rundfunks) in Masurenallee under the identity ‘Hier spricht Berlin’ (Berlin Calling!).
On this date in 1957, Independent television in UK begins trial schools broadcasts, ahead of the planned BBC experiment. Associated Rediffusion donates 100 television sets to London schools. One programme a day is transmitted; 85 schools in London and the Midlands are said to be watching.
On this date in 1959, television services start in Ecuador and Lebanon.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.


He said it first....'Television'.

He said it first….’Television’.

In 1900, the term ‘television’ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

Marketing Research
What Types of Marketing Messages Do Women Prefer?
Fact: Younger female users are more likely to follow brands on social media.
Nearly three-quarters (73%) of US female internet users say they at least sometimes receive marketing messages directed specifically to women. But 74% of respondents said they prefer messages that are gender neutral.

April 2016 research from Fluent LLC surveyed 1,443 US female internet users ages 18 and older. According to the data, most respondents said they received marketing messages directed specifically to women. Just over a quarter of female internet users said they rarely, or never, received them.

When asked if they prefer marketing messages directed specifically to women or those that were gender neutral, only 26% of respondents said they preferred marketing messages directed specifically for women. In fact, almost three-quarters of female internet users said they prefer marketing messages to be gender neutral.

Fluent also looked at brand-related digital activities that US female internet users conduct. The survey found that female internet users of all ages were almost equally likely to check online customer reviews, as well as browse products online before making purchase at a store.

Female users ages 18 to 29, however, were a bit more likely to follow brands on social media and sign up for email marketing newsletters compared to older female respondents.

Mobile Note
If you’re using the text messaging function of your phone almost every day, then you are part of the 3.7 Billions people in the World who are using SMS as a way to contact their friends, family and customers.

Digital/Mobile Research
72% Of Smartphone Shoppers Say They Research An Item Before Purchasing It. Knowing The Mobile Shopper.
For many Americans, smartphones are as much a necessity in their daily lives as the air they breathe and the food they eat. These devices are constant companions, helping us take care of just about everything we need to do each day—watching our favorite shows and movies, keeping up with our friends, learning new languages and managing our finances.

And spending money is no exception!

In addition to growing as a new purchase channel, mobile commerce offers a plethora of opportunities for marketers and advertisers looking to reach their desired consumers. According to Nielsen’s fourth-quarter 2015 Mobile Wallet Report, 37% of respondents said their purchases start with mobile shopping more than one-quarter to half of the time. However, the competition is fierce, and in order to maximize these opportunities, marketers must know the best ways to position their products and communicate with appropriate audiences.

Consumers handle a lot of their shopping activities on their mobile devices, and everyone knows that savvy consumers do their due diligence before handing over their cash. In fact, 72% of smartphone shoppers research an item before purchasing it, 70% check the price of an item and 60% use a store locator to find a store where they can buy their desired product of choice.
While smartphones are used often in mobile shopping, tablets used as well! In fact, 66% of tablet shoppers researched an item before purchasing it, followed by 57% of tablet shopper checking the price of an item. Fifty-one percent of tablet shoppers read a review of an item they purchased or plan to purchase.

So which factors are most important to consumers when they’re shopping on mobile?

With mobile shopping being a visual experience, it should come as no surprise that consumers want to be able to see product pictures over everything else when shopping on a mobile phone (62%). Shoppers also want mobile-friendly versions of the websites they visit via mobile (48%), and 44% of respondents said that having the product descriptions was also highly important.
According to Nielsen’s Mobile Measurement, app usage is also accelerating when it comes to commerce and shopping. Notably, app usage increased 15% in time spent and unique audience year-over-year between fourth-quarter 2014 and fourth-quarter 2015.

After purchasing, consumers’ predominant shopper activity is tracking order progress (65%), followed by visiting a retailer site/app on their mobile device to browse and/or shop again (51%). And 33% of consumers say they use their smartphones to sign up for a rewards program after making a purchase on their smartphone.

Demographic Research
Shifts In Young Mothers’ Brand Conversations
Young mothers (aged 18-34) still mostly talk about brands in face-to-face conversation, but online conversations have grown in recent years, per new data from Keller Fay Group. The newly-released figures indicate that between 2008 and 2015, the share of brand conversations among young mothers taking place in face-to-face conversations decreased from 75% to 70%.
At the same time, online conversations grew from 6% to 14% of all brand conversations over the same period.

Interestingly, this shift seems to be occurring more rapidly among mothers when compared with non-mothers. Specifically, face-to-face conversations have only declined a point to 73% in terms of word-of-mouth share among Millennial non-mothers, with online conversation growing at a slightly more muted pace than for mothers (from 7% to 12%).

For context, data released in late 2014 by the Keller Fay Group found that 71% of all Millennials’ word-of-mouth impressions about brands took place offline.

Meanwhile, the move to more online conversations isn’t the only noteworthy trend. As the data attests, it’s also the types of brands that Millennial mothers are talking about that is changing. While there’s been a strong increase since 2010 in conversation about household brands, technology brands have also seen a hike in conversation, of 25%. That compares favorably to an overall increase of 9% in conversation about tech brands.

Other categories seeing an increase in conversation among young mothers include travel, retail and financial services. (Interestingly, women and Millennials are driving the conversation about financial services on Facebook, per a new MarketingCharts report. These increases have occurred at the same time as conversation about children’s products has declined by 2% during the same period, from December 2010 to December 2015.

The shift is evident in the top brands that Millennial mothers are talking about. While Walmart remains the most talked about brand, tech companies now occupy 4 of the top 10 positions, led by Apple (#2) and Samsung (#3). At the same time, the 10th-most talked about brand in December 2010, Pampers, has fallen to #45 in the December 2015 rankings, while the #11 brand, Huggies, has dropped to #23.

Amazon also cracked the top 10 in the latest rankings, coming in at #8. The brand had the most positive word-of-mouth among US parents last year and the second-best among Millennials, per YouGov BrandIndex data.

It’s worth noting that the Keller Fay Group data suggests that Millennial mothers aren’t talking less, they’re simply talking about different things and in different ways. Given MarketingCharts’ primary research showing that recommendations from friends and family trump all forms of paid advertising in terms of purchase influence among both women and Millennials, these trends are important considerations for brands.

Social Media Research
Facebook Live Video Awareness Highest Among 30-44-Year-Olds
Some 37% of US adults have heard about Facebook’s new feature allowing them to broadcast live video, details YouGov in recent research conducted for the Huffington Post. Notably, awareness (heard “a lot” or “a little”) was highest among the 30-44 age group (54%), followed by those under 30 (45%). The 30-44 bracket (14%) was also twice as likely as the adult average (7%) to say that they would broadcast live video of their life on Facebook.
Separate results from the survey indicate that adults are slightly more likely to be using Facebook less (28%) than more (25%) when compared to their usage last year. This pattern holds true across all age groups save for 30-44-year-olds, who are more likely to have increased (31%) than decreased (23%) their time spent with Facebook.

Perhaps trust has a role to play. While 45% of 30-44-year-olds trust Facebook with their personal data either a lot (3%) or somewhat (42%), that figure drops to 36% of 18-29-year-olds and 45-64-year-olds and just 19% of those aged 65 and older. On a racial/ethnic basis, Hispanics (46%) are the most trusting overall, though Black Americans are the most likely (10%) to trust Facebook “a lot” with their data.
