Children See Things Differently

The lenticular technique ( used in this billboard enables the viewer to switch between a real world view and that of a child. From one angle you can see cleaning products underneath a sink, through the other angle you see these same cleaning products in the fashion a child sees them.

Programming Hands

Risk is something which can be difficult to evaluate for the average person, there is a lot of work which goes in to learning not to do the two things that people usually do when they are confronted with risk:

  1. Ignore
  2. Overreact

Investigating the FaceBook Adverts #advert #fb

leave a comment »

This is the first advert I’ve created, mostly I stay away from adverts as I’m not a marketeer. This case was different, as I am running a test campaign for a friend as a Xmas gift, last year I did a series of CraigsList ads last year, so this year I thought I would use FaceBook as it was possible to get some information back and learn something about the ad system which FaceBook has.

It is possible to target the following:

  • Likes & interests
  • Connections (connected to)
  • Connections (not connected to)
  • Friends of connections
  • Demographics (age/birthday/sex/relationship status/language)
  • Education
  • Location

Based on the information I know I have given FaceBook this is rather limited, it should be possible to target people using specific keywords or phrases to use the implicit knowledge that FaceBook has gathered about its users.

Why is CPC a bid? And who is earning money from this?

with one comment

When I just started I too had trouble with getting all the items I required to make the implementation of Agile a success. I thought I could help you gather the tools and let you focus on implementing Agile.

Reserve your Agile/SCRUM Pack.
