Today, we are all marketers and salesmen. This is specially true if you work for yourself or a startup. As we all become content generators, getting your target market’s attention to your messages become even more competitive.
I have been a fan of Pocket, which allows you to easily save links of importance through a browser plugin. Their latest implementation means that the stories they promote, become the first read before you visit any of other famous news outlets, such as Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter.
This suddenly increases the influence Pocket has on content creators and advertisers.
Given that Manchester based Wakelet is also in the same market with a browser extension, Jamil and his team ought to take notice of Pocket’s implementation.
Once everyone including Dropmark latches onto the same distribution channel, then there need to be a mechanism for users such as me to decide which content distributors should be given access to the real estate in my browser.
On the same token, even Jack and his team at edocr.com ought to give some consideration to use of browser real-estate. Wouldn’t it be nice to discover document content of interest, such as white papers and case studies relevant to my interest every time I start my browser to log into my favourite website or SaaS web application?
