If I look at how some of the companies that ruled the web some years ago are now dealing with the mobile revolution, I wonder if they will still be leading the market in five years from now.
Facebook, Wordpress, YouTube. Very poor mobile applications for services that were born on a big screen and now risk to die there.
It seems to me that there is a lot of space in mobile social networking and mobile entertainment for those who will dare to spot it.
Indeed, I am thrilled to see these new players rise.
I wonder what is the point in making limited offers that basically last forever. Do companies really think this is a good way to attract customer’s attention (and money)?
In the last month alone, LinkedIn (to name one) offered me four times to try out the Premium service for free for one month. “Only few days left!”. “Your gift expires today!”. Four times. In the last month alone.
I mean, I can understand the passion of a company for its products and services. But isn’t this maybe the better way to decrease their value in the customer’s eye?
