I’ve just received the latest State of Social Marketing report by Simply Measured and I have to say that the report has improved a lot in terms of content quality. Specifically, I liked the section they dedicated to show how to map your social strategy and align it to business impact. Social business seems to be the big topic moving forward.

As they said “Once social marketers are able to quantify social’s area of impact, they can solve the issue of integration, which our survey highlighted as a major challenge”

Social metric map

I believe this graph “Social Metrics Map” is very suitable and helpful as it includes in the same table, not only metric and KPIs but also other items likes goal, social strategy, etc

Below you will find top key findings from the report State of Social Marketing 2006


• Social media is a growing focus for marketing teams: The percentage of social media teams that live within the marketing organization has grown from 49% in 2015 to 63.2% in 2016.
• Marketing teams have two distinct functions: To be stewards of the brand, and to drive revenue and demand.
• Measuring ROI is a massive problem: 61.1% of marketers identified “Measuring ROI” as their top challenge, and only 9.4% said that they’re able to quantify revenue driven by social.
• Social media marketers don’t have the budget they need for analytics software: 76.5% of marketers say they aren’t getting the budget they need to do their best work, and 43% cite analytics software as their biggest need.
• Instagram adoption is nearing complete penetration among brands: 94% of top brands have profiles, and 86% posted to the network in May.
• 100% of top brands have Twitter profiles, and 99% posted in the month of May.

Things continue to change in social media and digital. Messenger platforms are taking over email and soon over social networking, people are using the more and more emojis, paid becomes a must, new platforms are changing the way humans communicate, etc.

I’ve been always a fan of that kind of brands that enter a category and suddenly, with a proper positioning vision and a solid and smart strategy become leaders. This is the case of Gin Mare, the Mediterranean Gin. I’m amazed and cannot be more aligned with one of the greatest event ideas I’ve ever seen lately. Enjoy and distillyou life… Remember The Mediterranean is not a place but an attitude.

Mediterranean attitude

Below I’ve included the brand case developed by the consultancy Garrigos&Llopis. You will find a great analysis and many important things that define the this premium Gin and helped to build a powerful brand.

Although sites like Facebook offer a quick and nice view of what’s going on in the world (Note that Facebook prioritises news over brand posts), there are more insightful sites out here to identify relevant trends and what the future will look like. In this list I’m trying to avoid the big names like Forbes, Nielsen or Masahable.

Here below, it’s the list of 5 relevant sites for trends hunting I’ve subscribed and I follow:

About: “We help businesses process global consumer lifestyle, product and engagement insights, stimulating innovation and growth”

Reason why I like it: Recommended by one of my greatest colleagues, Stylus offers great reports not only about trends but also consumer lifestyle, new products, etc. The blog is really good if you are looking for a quick dose of inspiration.

Stylus trends

About: “With 60,000,000 monthly views, is the world’s largest, most popular trend community. Our head office is based in Toronto, Canada, and we are fueled by a global network of 155,000 members and 3,000,000 fans. Trend Hunter, Trend Hunter TV and Trend Hunter PRO feature 252,000 cutting edge ideas.”

Reason why I like it: Although a classic, I think the site still offers a nice mix of ideas, insights, product innovations, culture, etc. I like how each article is scored and it shows audience information. We can discuss whether this is really accurate or not but it adds a nice touch.

best trends sites

About: “Cool Hunting is an award-winning publication that uncovers the latest in design, technology, style, travel, art and culture. Since 2003 our original content has informed the creative community that’s designing the future.”

Reason why I like it: It’s fresh and it’s name says, the site is very focused on the cool. You can read but also listen, link, look, travel, etc. Get your attention grabbed by a cool image and read further if interested.

Best sites for trend hunting

About: “Established in 2002, we help forward-thinking business professionals in 180+ countries understand the new consumer and subsequently uncover compelling, profitable innovation opportunities.”

Reason why I like it: Free publications are good and the site is very easy to navigate and visually appealing. Their methodology includes a Trend Framework that contains the 16 mega-trends that define the future of business and consumerism at large and which form the basis of their research process.

Use these sources to get inspired and get some validation but never stop questioning things. Go underground and observe and identify insights and spot trends on your own. And remember, curiosity is the greatest tool ever designed.

As a marketer you might have seen a lot of social media campaign planning guides but they are either incomplete or not compelling enough. Checking one of my favourite blogs I’ve just found this one that looks very interesting and relevant for me.

Durante el 2015, he tenido la suerte de hablar con bastante gente y conocer varias marcas y projectos que me han gustado mucho. He experiementado con todos ellos.


Una ginebra de claro carácter mediterráneo.Para su elaboración se utilizan diferentes elementos aromáticos muy típicos del mediterráneo como son la oliva arbequina, el tomillo, la albahaca o el romero. Todo infusionados en una base de cebada y destilado en una alambique de origen florentino

Gin Mare

– Todo el branding y packaging
– El aprovechamiento de una super tendencia en el mercado (El Gin&Tonic)
– Su marketing de diferenciación y premium approach
– En principio vienen a mi boda en Junio 🙂

– Keep it Premium! y no olvidéis la esencia mediterranéa


Meditation app. Muy sencilla, muy chula y con varios programas y opciones. He estado mirando otras varias y puedo asegurar que es mi preferida. De hecho, me he registrado en la versión de pago.

Algunos de vosotros me habréis visto compartir alguna sesión en social media. Estoy convencido que es ka nejor solución para aquellos que se inician y buscan sesiones de meditación sencillas, eficaces, anywhere, anytime.

Calm meditation

– Todo el branding. El nombre y claim es perfecto!
– Poder hacer tracking de todas las sesiones que relizas
– Muy visual, con varias opciones de backgrounds que realmente te relajan
– Su perfil de Instagram, aunque creo que deberian seguir publicando texto en las imágenes 🙂

– Keep it simple! La meditación es el futuro. Intentar ofrecer los servicios o branded sessions a empresas.


Marketplace curated de productos mediterráneos.

De la nostalgia por esa época en la que el tiempo transcurría más lento y las cosas se hacían con cariño y dedicación, nace este proyecto inspirado en los artesanos y diseñadores que sienten verdadera pasión por lo que hacen. Boutiquers es una delicada selección de Boutiques, o tiendas de productos selectos, que reúne el exquisito trabajo confeccionado en pequeños talleres del Mediterráneo.

Productos mediterraneos

– Todo el branding, la idea, la web, todos los materiales de marketing son genuinos.
– Ver como han ido creciendo poco a poco y añadiendo nuevos productos
– Me encanta lo claro de como se definen y los beneficios del proyecto

Boutiquers que es

– Keep it auténtico! Expandir la oferta de productos pero seguid fiel al Med!


Plataforma de Social listening con soluciones para analítica y Business Intelligence. Llevo como 2 años usando sus servicios en la agencia.

digimind dashboard

– El dashboard. Es muy intuitivo y sencillo. What, Who, Where, How and When!
– El servicio

– No tengo muy claro lo del icono animal hehehe, aunque me comentan que se trata de un suricato que en la sabana africana están siempre “alerta” de lo que pasa en su entorno 🙂


Marca de gafas de sol low cost pero muy cómodas de con lentes polarizadas. Bueno ahora tambien relojes!

Meller low cost gafas de sol

– Los diseños son muy chulos
– Las gafas son muy cómodas
– Creo que es una gran idea porque el mercado de gafas de sol necesitaba un low cost que ofreciera gran valor. Uno no puede gastarse 200 euros en gafas que tiene que cambiar acda año debido a la moda.
– Su Instagram!

– Cuidado que hay bastante otros productos muy similares: WolfNoir, Cerodoscinco, pero sobre todo Curetbrand … Yo invertiria en crear un diferenciador fuerte y entraría en Asia!

6- TRIP.ME es una plataforma de Internet donde los viajeros que buscan experiencias únicas pueden seleccionar, personalizar sus viajes directamente con las agencias locales en todo el mundo. Nadie conoce mejor los destinos que ellos.

– La idea, creo que el sector del travel necesita otro nuevo gran cambio
– Todo lo relacionado con viajar creo que tiene negocio
– El business model. Sencillo y con (comision a negocios locales)
– The power of LOCAL

– Creo que la customización de los viajes que ofrecen no es tan genial. Me da que la idea supera en bastante a la implementación.
– Competencia está aumentando
– El branding en este caso no es mi favorito.

This is a very interesting TED talk that shows that you don’t need a perfect English accent to receive a loud series of applauses.

I do really like how Yves Morieux destroys the myth of the big 3: Clarity, Accountability and Measurement

Digital Disruption business models

Digital Disruption business models

  • The Subscription Model (Netflix, Dollar Shave Club, Apple Music) Disrupts through “lock-in” by taking a product or service that is traditionally purchased on an ad hoc basis,  and locking-in repeat custom by charging a subscription fee for continued access to the product/service
  • The Freemium Model (Spotify, LinkedIn, Dropbox) Disrupts through digital sampling, where users pay for a basic service or product with their data or ‘eyeballs’, rather than money, and then charging to upgrade to the full offer.  Works where marginal cost for extra units and distribution are lower than advertising revenue or the sale of personal data
  • The Free Model (Google, Facebook) Disrupts with an ‘if-you’re-not-paying-for-the-product-you-are-the-product’ model that involves selling personal data or ‘advertising eyeballs’ harvested by offering consumers a ‘free’ product or service that captures their data/attention
  • The Marketplace Model (eBay, iTunes, App Store, Uber, AirBnB) Disrupts with the provision of a digital marketplace that brings together buyers and sellers directly, in return for a transaction or placement fee or commission
  • The Access-over-Ownership Model (Zipcar, Peerbuy, AirBnB) Disrupts by providing temporary access to goods and services traditionally only available through purchase. Includes ‘Sharing Economy’ disruptors, which takes a commission from people monetising their assets (home, car, capital) by lending them to ‘borrowers’
  • The Hypermarket Model (Amazon, Apple) Disrupts by ‘brand bombing’ using sheer market power and scale to crush competition, often by selling below cost price
  • The Experience Model (Tesla, Apple) Disrupts by providing a superior experience, for which people are prepared to pay
  • The Pyramid Model (Amazon, Microsoft, Dropbox) Disrupts by recruiting an army of resellers and affiliates who are often paid on a commission-only model
  • The On-Demand Model (Uber, Operator, Taskrabbit) Disrupts by monetising time and selling instant-access at a premium.  Includes taking a commission from people with money but no time who pay for goods and services delivered or fulfilled by people with time but no money
  • The Ecosystem Model (Apple, Google) Disrupts by selling an interlocking and interdependent suite of products and services that increase in value as more are purchased. Creates consumer dependency
