    [Blog] 6 Reasons why you should check-in with location-based services such as TriOut, Foursquare, Brightkite, Whrrl, Gowalla, Scvngr, PlacePop, Yelp and more!
    Yesterday afternoon I was on a geo / location-based twitter rant due to various market research reports and blog post about the value of location-based services and the adoption of them. m not saying the research was inaccurate but I think the main message that was being delivered to marketers about the current state of location-based services could have been delivered better. If you have no clue what I’m talking about read the following post: Study: Foursquare, LBS Apps Have Narrow Audience, Prime For Early Adopter Marketers.

    [Blog] Seth Godin Contradicts His Marketing Advice
    Seth Godin gives free marketing advice every day on his blog. I’ve subscribed to his blog for about two years and soak up his insights like water on bread. Some of his articles stick out in my head more than others but, when he writes something that completely contradicts something he wrote in the past, I get very frustrated. Case in point… Seth’s latest article is titled Alienating the 2% and he argues companies should ignore, not engage, their small percentage of critics. And you’ll probably hear a lot more from the unhappy 2% than from the delighted 98.

    try very hard to make my blog about you.  In 2006 at the Balanced Life Center blog , the author created the Season of Gratitude.  Happy Thanksgiving!    Even if you're not in the states -- why not take a moment today and remember some of the blessings you have in your life?   I want to infuse value, insights and fresh ideas in every post. But I believe that one of the most powerful emotions we can experience is gratitude.    I believe it literally can move mountains and change hearts.  Anyway…enough prelude.   My daughter.

    [Blog] The Truth About Display Advertising (And Why Consumers Hate It)
    This Blog post is in no way calling for the death to the banner ad (that would just be more clutter on top of a topic covered all too often). Call it banner advertising or call it display advertising, if you look at the data: consumers are just not that into it. In the past, I've waxed poetic about how display advertising as a marketing engine is failing online consumers while padding the wallets of publishers (more on that here: The Web Has Failed Advertising and here: Banner Advertising Is But One Small Component Of Digital Marketing ).
