Here’s a great International app revenue trend article.

"In the final quarter of 2012, both the iOS App Store and Google Play had strong increases in app revenue over the previous quarter. From Q3 to Q4, Google Play app revenue doubled [1], while iOS App Store revenue grew by about one-fifth. Even though Google Play had a higher growth rate, the iOS App Store gained more in absolute revenue, given its larger revenue base. The iOS App Store gain also was driven in large part by a record December. Closing out the year, Apple remained the leader in app revenue, earning over three-and-a-half times that of Google Play in December 2012.” http://blog.appannie.com/app-annie-index-january-2013/

Bloomberg: The Social Web Means Business & Sept 12 Webinar

Rob Harles, BloombergThe Social Web Means Business

by Green Star Solution

A Bloomberg article about How Zappos has created a new e-commerce site with Pinterest describes how the emergence of the social web means business, and is not only impacted by electronic and mobile commerce but by social commerce. Digital commerce and online customer behavior are changing rapidly now that the typical shopping experience has moved beyond traditional brick-and-mortar and Internet sites to include evolving and expanding digital platforms - Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, YouTube, and Pinterest. The online shopping experience has been enhanced with localization, personalization, instant price comparisons and reviews along with 24/7access via iPad/Tablet, mobile and computer devices. Social sharing indicators are reflecting positively on e-commerce sales, and as online sales continue to rise, retailers and e-tailers will focus their digital social efforts, driving competition and vying for customers’ attention, purchases, and engagement.

With savvy use of technology, data management and customer service, the shopping process will become more streamlined. How we shop, buy and share will change exponentially as more information is leveraged to feature products in creative ways and define what we, our family/friends and others “like”, “tweet”, “pin” and “pinpoint”.

As digital commerce emphasizes ease and security, shoppers will have more options and benefits to score the next deal and find.

Speaking of great deals, Green Star Solution is offering FREE REGISTRATION on September 5, 6, and 7 to attend the International Digital Commerce Social Media Webinar and Q & A on September 12, 2012 with Rob Harles, Global Head of Social Media for Bloomberg.
