[Marketing] Redskins Need to Rebrand
The last two times I publicly critiqued brands were BP in 2010 during the oil spill, and Komen for the Cure in 2011-12. I don’t criticize brands often because done frequently as a marketing consultant it creates conflict of interest issues , including a better than thou attitude that doesn’t build a strong reputation. The Washington Redskins need to rebrand. The mounting pressure makes it clear, from mainstream media to federal lawsuit, people want Dan Snyder to change the name of his team, often viewed as a racial slur against Native Americans. It’s that simple.

Social Media and information can be overwhelming at times; rather many a times. You would be receiving invites to join into Social Sites, forwards emails and links to various sites where there would be information that people thought would interest you. What do you do with so much of information overload? Well we need to plan and be focused.

The purpose of work is to optimize personal and collective talents to create value for markets that will consume the value created from “work” Work is a by-product of intangible capital that creates tangible results beyond expectations. The intangible capital is in the minds of the worker whether they are in your building or not. In the past work was performed in buildings. People were paid to come to work and do functions in a building. The “building” was where people interacted with machines to perform organized task that produced something to sell.

[Marketing] Find Great Apps for Your Nokia Lumia Phone with AppSocial
If you’re in the market for a Windows 8 phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a great one to pick. One of the things I find is missing about mobile app stores is the ability to find suggestions from people you know and trust. Sure, an app may have 1,000 reviews, but you don’t know who these people are. For example, I’m more likely to trust a review about a social media app from someone who is a social media professional vs. an average user. This is where AppSocial by Nokia comes in. AppSocial is exclusively for Nokia Lumia users on the Windows 8 platform. Silly, yes. Busines

This is way too many times to keep up with new changes, and its affecting the ranking of every website on the World Wide Web.

What many new content marketers don’t understand is that the two go hand in hand. Much has been said about link building and guest blogging. Guest blogging can be a useful form of link building as long as you focus on quality and not just on acquiring links. The links you get from guest blogging are usually in your author bio, which is published at the bottom of your articles when you get them published. Your bio links are a benefit of guest blogging, not your purpose. But you want to do that on blogs that exist within your niche and that have a high authority rating.

What was not expected was other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Google+ picking up on hashtags. Unsurprisingly, it involves the use of hashtags. That’s four social networks that use hashtags. According to Hashtags.org, there are at least 12 websites that make use of hashtags.

It’s time for small businesses to figure out how to use them for creative marketing and online branding. In June, Facebook announced that it would start supporting hashtags.

But hashtags are even more powerful when you can use them as a branding tool for your business. Big brands are already doing this. The key to using Facebook hashtags is to pick something that is brandable. Some examples of brandable hashtags include: #strawsome.

The design layout is smooth and easy to navigate if not pleasant to look at. Users can move elements around on the page, a feature that I wish other social networks (like Facebook, for instance) had because what’s important to you may not be important to me.
