    Thumbs up Great video about .mobi from Al Ries

    A marketing friend of mine just sent me this video from Al Ries: http://www.riesreport.com/index.php?month=5

    It seems to be a follow-up to his latest article in the Ad Age.

    This is great promotional material for .mobi.

    It's great to have someone of this stature in the marketing field backing up .mobi! Nice report -- once again, I think my GasFoodLodging has come at the perfect time...just wish he'd known about it to mention it...

    Ries was selected as one of the most influential people in the field of public relations in the 20th century by PR Week magazine in 1999. Ries has also written a number of books that have made the BusinessWeek best seller list on a number of occasions.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention; just watched some of the videos.... pretty damn good!

    I did wonder if he was just paid to read his report out from a 3rd party script? the trouble he had with pronouncing 'mobleenet' (mobilenet) concerned me... it was like he'd never read it before?
    But!!! That's me playing devils advocate; I love the message he's delivering; whoever wrote it.. I would be so made up if it pans out that way ;-)

    I've watched a few more now......... it looks like Al and Laura both have trouble reading their autocue from time to time (in fact Laura more so than Al ;-)
    Maybe they should do more than one take?.......... nicely presented apart from that though.

    Does anyone know the score with them? who pays them etc....

    Its more like who doesn't pay them. They have an agency in atlanta and are very well known. If you walk into a borders or barnes and nobles you can't walk through the business section without seeing books by Al or Nies and Trout. They have more clout than just about anyone in marketing industry.

    I have to admit, I like the fact that their website (Ries Report) is totally free of adverts, sponsors etc... & the more of the videos I watch the more I warm to the slightly less than perfect presentation; it somehow affords them some kind of honesty / integrity...

    They save their promotional stuff for Ries.com (you can see the range of stuff they're involved in there).

    Their marketing books are among the best sellers at Amazon...if they'd focus their next one on the mobile 'net, that would be fantastic.
