Today’s guest post is by Bryce Christianson. Reddit is like a jungle in the tropics. When you take your first step into the canopy, you are quickly overwhelmed by what to do there. There are lots of paths to take, you see hints of things that interest you, and you want to explore more, but you have no guide. Maybe you’ve heard Reddit is just full of [&hellip... Read More

My entire team is in Chicago right now for our 2013 planning meeting and holiday dinner. In preparation for the week, travel plans were made, client work was doubled to make up for two days away, guest blog posts were scheduled, and anticipation filled the air. In fact, I think most of Facebook is jealous they’re all here because of the anticipation they’ve built online about [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Amy McCloskey Tobin. Facebook was my first great social media love. I resisted at first, but once I jumped in back in 2009, I was head over heels. Other networks turned my head periodically, but Facebook claimed my time and my business heart. I used it to build up one of my own small businesses – at one point 50 percent of our [&hellip...

Today’s guest post is by Andy Crestodina. We all know someone who scoffs at Twitter, fears Facebook, and has no interest in Pinterest. Some of these people are lawyers, some are boomers.

Here are three set-it-and-forget-it tips for people who will [&hellip... Read More

Hello from Amsterdam! I am totally in love with this city. It is not what I expected. There are bikes everywhere and they have their own lanes, with traffic signals, and the cars respect them. I might have to move here. The business culture is also very interesting. After I spoke last night, I had a conversation with two lovely young women who taught me the subtle [&hellip... Read More

With one billion birthdays listed on Facebook, the social network finally decided allowing you to send gifts through the social network was a good idea. Woo hoo! Sure, the company already has your email address, your family pictures, and your political beliefs.  Now they want you to store your credit card number and mailing address in there too. And, with all the hoopla going around about [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Jeremy Miller. Do you remember your middle school dances? Before 2010 I hadn’t given mine a second thought. They were distant memories until I started building my company’s social media community. Then the memories came rushing back. In May 2010, my team and I launched a small LinkedIn Group called Sticky Branding. We formed the group, seeded it with content and [&hellip... Read More

I heard lots of reports of the crazies out there waiting in line to get into the stores, while I stayed in my warm house and shopped online. One more day and then you have [&hellip... Read More
