[Blog] Real “Friends” Create Meaningful Value
Not blogging, or emailing or even texting. How would you define a “friend”? Most people would say they are the people who would be there for me without asking why. In other words real friends are people who know and love you. They are people who will give you advise when you ask for it and they also have enough relationship capital to hold you accountable. The purpose of a real friend is to be your friend when you need them. With the onset of social technology we all have friends, followers and connections. Commercially speaking all messages are designed to sell something.

[Blog] Making heads and tails of the new Facebook Insights
If you manage a Facebook page for a company, entity or personal blog you are probably aware that Facebook has rolled out a new Insights tool. To get to your Insights click on the "Insights" link on the left hand side of your fan page. Instead of the bare bones metrics from the old Insights tool, the new tool offers more data than most folks truthfully need. If you aren’t into crunching numbers, the main Insights page for your brand is probably more than enough as you can see where new fans are coming from, reach of your wall posts and people talking about you.

[Blog] Are you signaling honestly?
A few weeks back, I was having a conversation with my friend Geoff Livingston in the comments of a blog post. One thing led to another and he recommended Honest Signals from Alex (Sandy) Pentland. The book itself is a very smart read that took me out of my comfort zone of sorts. Instead of talking business, marketing or social, the book focused on an area that I have no background in – science. Throughout the research report, Pentland takes you through a number of studies and how her team was able to use computers and sensors to accurately predict the tells of humans.

[Blog] The future of Online Video
Maybe that’s why people are still texting on each others wall’s rather than posting video comments as it is much more personal and real. I bet that’s why the video service like Joost (where you could comment on videos in the real time) didn’t grow as expected, as people were still getting familiar with idea of sharing (what and why to share?) on the net and opportunity to blog or comment live just seemed a bit frightening and came too early. But situation is changing – services like 12seconds.tv and ustream.tv Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional | Valid CSS 3

analyzed my Top 6 blog posts for 2011 by total page views, and am re-running them this week as a “greatest hits” compilation. (Happy Holidays! This is #3. Everybody loves a disaster! Enjoy. – Jay). Twit happens. As more and more companies ramp up their Twitter presence, the likelihood that something off-message will slip by the digital goalie goes up considerably. The question is not whether your company will have to deal with self-destructive corporate Tweets, but what kind of tweet it will be, and by whom. Twit Happens #2 – Tone Deaf. Trade-off?”

[Blog] Where Influence Measurement Tools are Stymied
For example, you may subscribe to a mothering blog because a friend writes it, but haven’t put anything in your profile that you are a mother because you don’t want that included in your professional persona. But just because you engage with people on Twitter who blog about motherhood, you are put into this community by default. This post was written and published on Huffington Post. Measurement platforms that say they measure influence are misleading their users. Influence is the power to sway and the ability to change behavior. So What DO They Measure?

recently read a post on problogger.net by James Penn entitled, 10 Ways to Get More Email Subscribers For Your Blog that I thought brought home some key points. I know we all know “CONTENT IS KING” and we focus on putting out good stuff. But we should be just as focused on building the list to whom we’ll be sending all this valuable info. There are so many sources for gathering data from trade shows, PR and leads from advertising. We need to formulate a plan to separate them by market, industry or other criteria so specific targeted messages can be sent with a strong call to action.

But if you’ve given an outlet (TV, radio, blog, magazine, newspaper, etc.) On Sunday night, “ 60 Minutes had Mark Zuckerberg on to discuss the new Facebook layout and changes. It was pretty funny to watch people on Facebook before it aired – everyone was waiting for the game to end so they could watch “60 Minutes. And then, of course, we all discussed it during and after the show. It was fun and a great sense of community. It was interesting to see that Zuckerberg still rarely blinks (how does he do that?), And I wouldn’t blame them. Their PR team.

Overall, they believe we’ll see cleaner colors that give an emotional uplift. And they predict that colors will be combined in unusual ways. Here's the scoop: Black : Black's presence will diminish in 2011. Blue: Will be more important next year. It suggests hope, healing, serenity and tranquility. Organic.

Make your blog your fountain of knowledge as opposed to your drainpipe of loose facts. If you take a look at a list of the oldest businesses in the world , you’ll see the glaringly obvious fact that the majority of the companies listed are Japanese. Germany makes a good argument for having a fair few, while the U.S. begins a late charge once they broke away from British rule. The rest is a mish-mash of European countries and developing countries (at least in the later part of the list). So why does Japan have such a strong command of business, and what it takes to survive?

Easy is not always lazy. Simple and Easy are not the same, and there can be great value in both. We We use an acronym for EASY – though it’s more for the decision-making than the work or practice.

One reason it has become so popular is that it doesn’t take as long to compile a list of links on a particular topic and add those to a blog post as it does to create new, original content. Content curation has become a popular way for bloggers and online marketers to create new content for their audiences. But … and here’s the rub … original content is better for you and your readers. It’s less filling, goes down easier, and tastes better. Not to mention, it helps your content rank better and provides more value for your readers. Don’t believe me?

[Blog] Free is Free – or Its Not Free
Some of the better ways to distribute your expertise are through a blog like this, a YouTube channel , or a Facebook Page. They do charge for access to the blogs, which for the most part is for the superfans – and that’s not me. When you treat your friends and advocates as customers, some will become customers. Those that don’t may spread your message to future buyers. The old model is treating customers like royalty, while encouraging others (via marketing) to become customers so that they can enjoy the same preferential treatment. Here’s an example.
