I have used Evernote for years, first as a web app and now as an application on all three of my Apple devices. I also use the web clipper on every browser. About a year ago I increased my use of Evernote when I started to use it to organize my teaching and book writing. A very good decision. I am a very happy user....but here is my problem.
I get advertising type pitches from Evernote on Google+, Feedly and the Evernote apps. More impressions than I probably want, but I could tolerate it if the pitches had some value. For the last 12-18 months Evernote has been using a headline similar to "10 tips to get more out of Evernote". For the last 18 months they have not added a new tip that was not obvious to a 3-year old. Evernote..provide some value or stop boring me. Hint: think about the emotional value of the product rather than the feature set. At least the ads would be interesting.
Another peeve. On Google+ the comments in response to the postings all sound like PR department comments. 1 PR comment out of 100 is OK but not 99. Again no value in the comments and it is boring.
Evernote, you have learned how to use social media to increase sales. Now you have to learn how to provide valuable information to existing users. Remember marketing is customer acquisition and customer retention.
My last posting to improve corporate marketing, "Publix Marketing Strategy Changes for the Worse", focused on price positioning in advertising.
It always irks me when a good company with good products makes a marketing mistake.
