  • The seven stages of influencer relationship management

    I’ve been struck over the last few years about the way in which the profile of the influencer community has evolved. When you think of influencers you tend to think journalists, politicians or celebrities. However, an influencer can be anyone who has a passion or interest in a particular industry and wants to share their knowledge with other likeminded audiences. This is where the power of influencers can be key for building and growing brand trust.

  • Noodles for breakfast? Local insights matter

    I love a big hotel breakfast buffet. The spread is amazing, and while I'm tucking into my fruit and porridge I watch people eat not just the full English but noodles, curry or dried fish and rice. It's just normal to them, it’s what they do every morning – but it’s a great wakeup call to remind me that norms can be fundamentally different in a new market.

  • Focus groups – improve your qualitative research and inform your strategic thinking

    I first realised how valuable focus groups could be for gathering high-quality data when I was doing my PhD. I was doing research into attitudes towards alcohol among first-year university students and, in combination with other research methods, I found focus groups really valuable. I was trained by a professor who was well-known in the field of methodology for social research.

  • Agriculture and AI: improving food security for the future

    A major 2016 McKinsey report ranked the ‘Agriculture and hunting’ sector the least-digitised of all sectors, 22nd of 22 behind all other sectors including construction. Clearly advances in all kinds of technology – from sensors and drones to new ways markets aggregate and do deals – can help the agri sector as a whole to achieving greater profits and higher productivity… Here at KISS we were very surprised at this ranking given the advancements in drone technology and data analysis that we’ve witnessed in the industry in recent years. So we were intrigued to hear about a recent ‘AI and Agri Frenzy’ and investigated some of the ideas presented.

  • 5 Things You Need to Know About Bonded Internet

    As a Reseller, Value Added Reseller (VAR) or Channel Partner, you will know that your customers rely on their internet connection to benefit from the solutions that you provide to carry out their usual business.  However, according to the Office for National Statistics, over 20% of UK businesses have an internet connection that is slower than 10 Mbps, and only 16.1% have a connection that can deliver 100 Mbps or above*. Internet performance could therefore be a problem for a large number of your customers.

  • Establishing the foundation for 5G: a 2018 retrospective report

    2018 saw new advances in technology, new merger & acquisition activity, and new pilots in 5G deployment. Though this past year saw a lot of progress, there’s much more to come in 2019. In order to make 5G a reality in 2019 and beyond, 2018 laid the groundwork in fiber, small cells, and determined the standards for other 5G technologies. This past year has provided the foundation for 5G organizational and industry standardization, through physical, regulatory, and operational infrastructure groundwork. To succeed in the future, carriers and their service providers will need to build new infrastructure to make 5G a reality. This report from Sitetracker outlines what infrastructure is necessary, how to build it efficiently, and what tools are needed. The bottom line: network densification requires operational excellence to succeed, so companies must innovate or be left behind.
