Marketing Passion Blabstorm


Just the other night I had the chance to introduce my friend @marketingmiker (A.K.A. Mike Rudd) to Blab.im. It was the second time hosting my own Blab and Mike’s first time using the platform. You wouldn’t know it was Mike’s first time from the ease at which he participated in the live video chat event (it must […]

A Wonderful Idea For Amazon

Wonder Woman knapsack

Today is my wife’s birthday, and being a fan of super heroes like myself (have I mentioned she’s my perfect match?) I went with an all Wonder Woman gift theme this year. One of the gifts was this very cool Wonder Woman Knapsack whose picture you’ll see accompanying this post. One problem: the rivet on the snap closure […]

Typically the term overindulging has negative connotations. It’s too much food or too much drink. Too many trips to the all-you-can-eat buffet. Overindulging in this fashion leads to expanding your waistline and fattening your physique. If you overindulge a child you risk spoiling them. Many blame overindulging helicopter-parents for the entitled attitudes of millennials in the […]

The “About Them” page


Plenty of websites (even mine, probably yours) has an “About Me” or an “About Us” page wherein you talk about… yourself. The problem is, your website visitors don’t care about you. They care about them. So why don’t websites have an About Them page? An About Them page should talk about the kind of person […]

Periscope Marketing and Sales Ideas


Video content has been on my (and everybody else’s!) radar for a long time. Among the familiar tools that most people have used (or at least bookmarked for future use) are YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Vine, and (possibly) even SnapChat. One relatively new tool in the video content production utility belt is Periscope. Actually there are two new video tools — one […]

“Ordinary” means you’re doing it wrong


I love having conversations over a meal, but I hate the time it takes to prepare (and clean-up!), so I tend to dine out a lot in order to maximize my enjoyment of interesting table talk while minimizing the labor required to achieve it. As a result I have experienced some of the best and some of […]

The Most Important Person In The Meeting


Stephen Colbert was recently interviewed and asked a question about how he had honed his interview skills during his time as host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. Surprisingly, his answer had little to do with watching more experienced members of the traditional press do interviews and more about his own experience when he was learning […]

Easier For Who?


When a customer (external or internal) questions a policy or procedure that is foisted upon them by the representative of a company/brand/department with whom they are “trying” to do business, that policy was put in place to make life easier for the company/brand/department — not the customer.

Talent Relies on Techniques Not Tools


Is having the tool more important to your success, or is knowing the technique more important? A lot of people obsess over the latest social media sites (or the latest changes to social media sites) instead of obsessing over the content they develop and post to those sites.

A Carpenter Should Have A Hammer, Right?


You hire a carpenter to come to your house to build something (I don’t know what he’s going to build, you hired him. What do you need? Bookcases? Let’s say bookcases…) He shows up wearing a t-shirt that says “Bob’s Carpentry” on it and he hands you a business card that has his title listed as […]
