We are happy to introduce our very own Crister DelaCruz in today’s guest post. I’m known amongst my friends as the one who had a digital life even before Facebook (or MySpace) became popular. They think I’m an online “media techie” which cracks me up. I’m far from it, but I see where they might think that. I’m the one who “posts a lot on Facebook,” [&hellip... Read More

This first ran on Women Grow Business, a Network Solutions blog that Shonali Burke edits and manages. One of the most untapped social media tools is LinkedIn. Facebook, Twitter, and now Google+ are the media darlings while LinkedIn, which has been around longer than any of the tools combined, continues to grow and provide value without all the celebrity. Sparkle and shine notwithstanding, the fact remains [&hellip... Read More

I think we can all agree the way Netflix handled the communication of their price increase was a PR disaster. But before we get to the communication lessons, let’s get this out of the way. It sucks they had to increase their price. This economy sucks and, in the U.S., it could very well get even worse. But you know what? We all have to increase [&hellip... Read More

Well, to say I created a kerfuffle (to borrow from Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson) this week is putting it mildly. I learned some new blogging lessons this week; lessons I’ll likely share in a few weeks, after the dust settles. Until then, let’s have a little fun. Both Bob LeDrew and Marc Girolimetti posted AWESOME videos of Sesame Street characters rapping. I was watching them [&hellip... Read More

Guest post written by Molli Megasko. When I was in middle school, a couple girlfriends and I started collecting the “Got Milk?” ads out of the Seventeen magazines.  They were the best ad campaigns we had seen. We collected these ads; pictures of celebrities such as Jonathan Taylor Thomas and the cast of Friends all with white foam on their upper lip, and we decorated our rooms with [&hellip... Read More

This was first published on Joey Strawn’s blog. So if you read it there, move to the comments as there is nothing new to see here. Speaking of Joey, he is the first person who told me I need to pay attention to gaming online. No, not online poker, but gaming that provides a fun and competitive reason for people to come back to your website [&hellip... Read More
