Timing can “amp up” your advocates and what they say…

The other day I wrote a blog post on my WOM10 site, “Passion” is way too UNDERESTIMATED…, about passion and thought it deserved a bit more discussion in regard to being an Advocate.  Passion is without a doubt a key ingredient with an Advocate.  When someone is passionate about something they naturally want to talk…

It’s been a while…

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…

I have been reading a number of articles, blog posts, twitter and other content on what others think is the “secret to successful blogging” and I am shocked! Most are missing the biggest value of blogging. Most believe that if you have something to say and it can’t be said in 140 characters (twitter and…

Business Examiner – A newspaper that "Gets It"…

Yesterday, Clay and I had the opportunity to speak for a second time to a great group of executives in Tacoma, WA – sponsored by the Business Examiner. Yes, that’s right, a newspaper is sponsoring seminars on Social Media. While it may seem like an oxymoron, especially with the rapid decline of newspapers these days,…

Our third seminar…

This past week we held our third seminar, “Social Media for CEO’s”. It was great because we had over 20 people in attendance (our largest crowd so far) and over half of them were individuals that were referred by someone else. We are really seeing the viral nature starting to work and the WOM (word…
