Why You Need More Than ‘Convenience’ To Drive Digital Adoption

Lemonade

Have you ever launched a new digital product, confident customers will love it, only to have the adoption rate drag? You ran targeted Facebook ads, sent out pamphlets — you even have a TV commercial in market. There’s a common assumption that if you tell consumers how convenient digital products are, adoption will follow.

Clive on Learning

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. But the problem is, I’m NOT starting over. So adoption could be quite fast. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook.

Learning with 'e's

Some such as Jane Davis said they thought it was a good idea to do this to maintain salience and focus on context specific roles, but others such as Martin King saw problems suggesting that ''just as identity is complex, so is trying to divide it''. This is very much aligned to Erving Goffman''s drama model in which he suggested that we adopt front stage and back stage roles depending on where we find ourselves located across the formal-informal spectrum of our daily activities.

Social Networking – A Contrarian View

Upside Learning

Today, I’m going to adopt a contrarian view.

Social technologies are going to take time to be adopted, just like it too years before people thought email.

More often than not, what seems like an easy problem to solve, can be a multi-layered challenge within a changing business and technology environment.
