Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence April 2012

Industry themes we're tracking this month? The importance of innovation in your strategy: build it or buy it?

Instagram's $1bn price tag makes sense for Facebook's 'buy' strategy because it blocked Twitter, Google, Apple or MSN from leaping ahead.

In cloud storage, the trend seems to be to 'build' your own: April saw Google unveil a cloud storage service to undercut Dropbox, SkyDrive and iCloud. Our money is on Dropbox getting bought soon, as late entrants realise 'buy' will be the only option left.

Meanwhile in digital marketing, the choices grew further:

- Measuring brand campaigns? Google's new TV-style metrics could be the answer
- Needing new ad platforms? Tumblr finally opens up
- Approaches for tackling Pinterest? Amazon and eBay's social shopping tools just started pinning

This month's Digital Intelligence includes data on: top Facebook brands in the UK, Asia overtaking the west for online video, China's internet growth, and which days of the week work best on social.

As always full stories at the end of the click, and a great video of Google's 'goggles' - the planned augmented reality glasses straight from a sci-fi film.

High street retailers move to Wi-Fi: Tesco tests a new approach

Is it a small activity in 4 stores, or a pilot for a new service all smart retailers will offer? We think the latest news from retail giant Tesco is the pilot of a new approach. Free wi-fi is being rolled out in 4 UK stores. This lets consumers browse while they shop - or in the in-store cafes. It makes the retailer a more comfortable place to spend more time, and also shows that Tesco isn’t frightened of consumers finding the same thing cheaper online elsewhere. In today’s world of blended retailing (where online research fuels offline purchases), brands need to investigate smartly. Chief information officer Mike McNamara is bullish: "You can stand… and pretend nothing is happening - or you can say it’s happening, and I am going to help it happen". Here’s how it will work …
