When was the last time you left a voicemail? In fact, how often do you call compared to how often you prefer to send a text message? In today’s world of Instant gratification it seems that sending an email and waiting for a reply is now soooo 2017. We want to communicate with businesses like we do with our friends – via a Instant Messaging where we get answers…well…instantaneously. WhatsApp has officially launched WhatsApp Business which is a standalone application for small businesses.
I am proud to once again work with Hive to bring you this Hive View Review. As usual, all opinions are 100% my own:I was out in Las Vegas at CES when my phone buzzed with a worrying message. The message was a notification from the Hive Door Sensor at home in Dallas which meant that someone opened my front door. It was 10am in Dallas which meant that my kids were at school and my wife was out with a friend….
CES is seen as the roadmap of what we can expect from tech in the upcoming year which is why thousands of people attend the expo from across the globe to see everything from a voice-activated toilet to self-driving cars and everything in between. This year was no different. Maybe it was the odd rain in Vegas. Maybe it was the power failure. Maybe it was because things didn’t go smoothly this year, but as I headed home, I left CES with a strange mix bag of feelings that I couldn’t shake.
@chrisbrogan Most importantly about this new app is the "automated replies". This is the first step to falling in line with Chatbots in Facebook Messenger followed by AI. That is powerful channel for a small business.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
