SEATTLE, Aug. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Williams Helde Marketing Communications has announced the official release of an innovative marketing and consumer behavior model to explain how customers receive information and make considered purchase decisions in the current multimedia environment.
Known as The Mobius Cycle™, the philosophy is a departure from the classic purchase funnel marketers have used for years to map the buyer's journey. Whereas the funnel is tidy, logical and linear, with a clearly defined beginning and ending, customers can enter The Mobius Cycle at any stage. It is a non-linear model with multiple segments running in perpetuity. A whitepaper on the Mobius Cycle can be found at www.williams-helde.com/mobius.
The Mobius Cycle describes how customers are influenced by a variety of sources and how they turn information into not just one finite purchase decision, but an ongoing and ever-evolving relationship with a product or brand.
"Instead of looking at the lifecycle with a single point of entry, we looked at the entire process holistically. This gave us the ability to see how one segment affects and overlaps with the others, and determine the strengths and weaknesses within that cycle," Williams Helde president Marc Williams said. "We created six main areas of focus and looked at each element individually, analyzing the cycle as a whole to inform a complete marketing plan for any business model."
"Today, people can interact with a brand at any point within the purchase lifecycle. Not to mention, there has been a major convergence of paid, owned and earned media to add to the decision process," Williams said. "In fact, mass media is no longer the driving factor in awareness and brand perception. And even 'new' media is no longer considered 'new' — it's all just media these days. For advertisers, this means that those influences we tried to control for so many years need to be rethought."

First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
