I know I know…it’s been a while since I blogged on this site. But there isn’t a day that goes by I don’t think about that and just run out of time working with clients. Clients are number one – they are not only my best Advocates but they have also committed to wanting to move forward in Strategy and Social Media and Customer Experiences. They deserve my time first and foremost. As you probably already know, I “eat my own dogfood” where I get all my clients from Word-of-Mouth and speaking gigs. So I commit my all to making sure they have exceptional experiences and are armed with things to talk about to their colleagues and friends. But no excuses…
I have also been “pinged” by many of you out there almost demanding more content on this blog about The New Advocate. While it is definitely flattering it is also very disturbing. Disturbing because I haven’t had the time to “feed” you with some of the great things I am seeing and experiencing out there every day – and for that I apologize. My plan is to do much better at this and to start blogging more on this site. If you haven’t checked out my other blogs that I write or contribute to on a regular basis, I would encourage you to do that as well. You can find them off to the right here under “My other blogs/sites”.
The world is advancing faster than I would have ever predicted in this area of Advocacy for companies and people. All of you are getting more and more comfortable having the microphone in your hand (computer screen and social media tools) and are speaking much more freely. This is good! Sharing your thoughts, insights, opinions, and recommendations is going to help everyone. We are maturing very rapidly from what people thought was the “bitch board” of the only people talking were those complaining. Just the opposite is true (more on that in a later post) – more people are actually saying great things about their experiences more than ever before! What great news for companies using social media the “right way” and providing the right platforms for their customers/clients to talk.
So lots of great experiences and stories over the past several months to share with you. Sorry for the darkness, time to move back into the light!!
