[Blog] Did LinkedIn Throw Out the Baby with the Bath Water
Thousands and thousands of businesspeople produce content on the LinkedIn platform natively. I put blog posts there as well. Is it just me, or do you really not understand what’s going on over at LinkedIn? I’ve been on record in the past as saying how smart I thought it was that LinkedIn moved from a social network for business to a content marketing platform for business. They’ve tried to become a B2B magazine. Smart. And their advertising revenue is doing well. They bought Slideshare ; super smart. Buying Newsle ? Also super smart. They killed it a couple years ago.

[Blog] Social Media - Kaleidoscope Marketing
In 2005, The American Cancer Society used a blog to support its Fabulous at 50 promotion focused on colon cancer education. That was true for blogs in 2005, it's true for social networks in 2010, and it will be true for the next shiny platform. Social media tools may fall out of favor; but the concept of leveraging the conversational, digital world to engage, educate and energize our customers is here to stay. When most people begin to explore social media they usually start from the perception that social media is another marketing channel. Glad you asked. Just a thought

[Blog] My Birthday Weekend
If some of you were wondering where I’ve been and why I haven’t blogged for a few weeks, it’s because I’ve been mentally busy. Work has been fairly demanding and my MSc dissertation has been too. I did get chance though to get away for four days to Staffordshire to a log cabin which was lovely and quiet and had a fab hot tub. The special occasion was my 34th birthday. It was great to spend some quality time with my husband, even if he did find it very hard to be away from WiFi and a mobile signal! Can’t wait to use it. ” I hear you ask? What a star.

[Blog] What’s the Price of Five Dollars?
And of course, when I tweet or blog about my frustration I potentially influence how others perceive the brand as well. This post by Andy Sernovitz got me thinking about how many companies are penny wise but pound foolish — and why, more often than not, that mindset is bad for business over the long haul. That, in turn, brought to mind a post I wrote a couple of years ago when a company I’ve had a reasonably long-term relationship with and how their penny wise thinking caused me to question my loyalty. So what’s the price of five dollars? Here’s the scoop.

They need to give consumers a chance to elect the brand every day, by endorsing it on their social networks, in their blogs, and at cash registers. Image: Ross William Hamilton. Corporations, consumers, and citizens must begin acting in concert to create a powerful third pillar of social transformation if we hope to meet the social challenges we currently face with equal force. This begins with corporations that choose to alter how they practice capitalism in two ways to serve the greater good. Do you believe brands are becoming will partners with consumers?
