It's been a while, maybe to long! Considering what is happening in the market, it's time to get back on track with the folks that power the industry (yes, besides consultants!). This is another mix of providers touching different aspects of marketing and services that hopefully give you a leg up (if not a whole body length or two).
You've heard it here before and you'll likely continue to hear it: accountability. I've not yet met a vendor that tells you everything. Even the most up… Continue

It's absolutely amazing...we humans. Creatures of habit, intrigue and fear-based reactivity. Right now is no exception, obviously! However, it is also possibly one of the most defining times as well. True leaders will come out of these challenges and leave those that just waited behind.
Survival of the fittest? Nope. Natural selection? Not in the least. Those that listen, learn and lead will become the only true survivors in the new environment, whatever that is. A constant… Continue

So many people...so little time! Man, you can't get away from the fear and excuses....it's the age of "I don't have enough time do to that"..."I can't add anything to my plate"..."If only I had another day in my week to pull that off"! Everyone is busy but few are actually doing much. The ones who see opportunity always figure a way to get things done, followed by the rest thinking they're just 'lucky' or that they have more 'resources'.
Can you hear it now? Most people pulling up to… Continue

It's so much a part of business today: cost cutting, staff reductions, marketing cancellations, disappearing perks. Even companies that are profitable and efficient are not exempt from the slashing and hacking (that makes sense, right? right?). Needed? Absolutely! Done right? No way!

There's no point in kicking a dead horse: it's bad out there and those that watch conventional media just make it worse by… Continue

Automotive retailers have been contacting me lately to ask how they can use Twitter to keep in front of their existing customers as well as to reach new customers. There are a number of emails claiming that business owners can build 10,000+ member "opt-in" email lists in just days using Twitter.
I thought it was time to make some initial comments as I continue to test how to leverage Twitter for clients. There are no EASY ways to generate an opt-in email list of 10,000+ consumers but… Continue
