What do bees and marketing have in common?
It’s all about connections.Marketing professionals and executives have a lot to learn from a beehive, says CEO of Beehaus co-founder Jeremi Karnell. Connections and networks drive the spread of information in a beehive, like in our highly connected world. By improving the spread of information through networks, marketers can harness the power of our world’s inherent graph and make better use of the information they are given. In this video from GraphConnect 2013, Karnell explains the parallel between marketing and the natural world, and introduces the concept of Graph Marketing. Marketers are increasingly turning to graph databases to power their analytics. Last week, Pitney Bowes and Forrester Research teamed up to publish an article highlighting the power of the graph database to improve marketing intelligence. “You can look at your data from any angle. You can see the relationships. You can ask questions and get deeper insights,” says Michele Goetz, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research.
