The first 7 – 12 Seconds…

Having spoken to thousands of CEOs and Business Owners over the past 4 years has taught me many things.  One of which is the 7 – 12 second rule. I am in a room speaking to a group of 5o executives and I ask the question, “What do you do with e-mail newsletters and other…

The Most Influential Person inside your Organization

Who do you think is the most powerful person in the organization today? Is it the CEO, President, COO, CMO, CSO, or someone else at the “C-level” in the organization? NO – it most likely isn’t any one of these people. Not because they don’t “run” the business or make sure it is operating at…

Our REAL Competition – not who you think…

The VERDICT is in – Social Media and Social Networking are here to stay!! In case you didn’t already know. Now, that may not be news to many of you or even most of you, but I just wanted to be clear on that one point before going forward. Being involved in the “social media”…

Chefs "Get" Social Media – they just didn’t know it…

The key to making a culinary delight isn’t that you know all the best ingredients, it’s knowing how to put the ingredients together that makes a difference. It isn’t any different with social media.

After all, measurable results are…

Social Media for Executives (our brand) evolves…

You, our audience of followers, readers, and advocates, has connected with us as SOCIAL MEDIA FOR EXECUTIVES for the past year during our “evangelist speaking tour” talking to CEOs, Business Owners, and other Top Executives. We were on a mission. That mission was to educate and share the message about the “Revolution” called Social Media…

Why Social Media Fails…

For quite a while now Clay and I have talked about why many organizations are struggling with seeing even modest “results” from their use of social media. One of the key reasons to us is that most marketers (over 80% from our experience) really don’t “understand” social media and as such are using it incorrectly….
