Columbus over Hill - setting sail with persistence
(The amazing results we can reap with digital marketing are still just a fantasy to many SME business owners.) Four days before I was born, one of the greatest writers of all time died. Napoleon Hill was known as the first author of books on personal success and desire and the will to fight through adversity in order to achieve. Needless to say, I didn’t know him. But, following so many...
Innovation Starts at the top with Leadership!

Newby – Publisher I recently attended the Astech Roundtable in Vail Colorado which provided the opportunity to listen and see what others within the news-media industry are doing to stimulate innovate within their various markets.

Remember: Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast
It’s all over the Ford “war room” - the non-bailout car company. Check this article out (click the title). Adhesiveness and authenticity in a company make its culture “thick and strong.” And if it’s strong and real, then it will dominate.

Digital isn’t just about banners on websites and mobile apps. “Advertisements designed specifically for women would be able to detect whether or not it is a woman looking at the billboard.” Redpost is on to something, locally. But who can bring the idea up - with weather, news highlights, and local advertising? I’m glad I brought the idea to light a couple months ago....

What is "engagement?" →
ibmsocialbiz: Engagement is about what comes next. Are people interested enough to click, read, and respond when you send the next email or publish your next blog post? As marketers, we measure opens and clicks and as long as the numbers look good and continue to grow, we’re satisfied that we’re doing our jobs. But who is responding? Is it the same people? Or is it a whole new group of folks...

In contrast, geniuses think productively, not reproductively. When confronted with a problem, they ask “How many different ways can I look at it?”, “How can I rethink the way I see it?”, and “How many different ways can I solve it?” instead of “What have I been taught by someone else on how to solve this?” They tend to come up with many different...
Silos Are For Farmers →
New channels are emerging rapidly. Not that long ago we focused on fewer marketing strategies or tactics. We had fewer tools to navigate and track success. Not all the functions of the organization focused directly on lead generation and revenue contribution (I feel like public relations has evolved in this area the most). Now, we have to integrate. We have to speak the same language across all...

5 Digital Marketing Metrics That Matter
Not made a digital marketing commitment?
When you drive down the road, do you ever see people on their mobile phones? How about while waiting in any lobby or line?
