How To Use Twitter in Social Media


As a business owner, CEO or the head of an International marketing department it is imperative to keep up with the changing of the times.

Become a Twitter Power User


It’s been a while since I wrote an article on Twitter. But since I’ve moved back to San Francisco, I’ve doubled my usage of Twitter in clients’ social media campaigns. Maybe it’s because I’m so close to their home office, or maybe because Twitter has once again made a huge leap in their versatility and […]

I’m not sure what’s happened since 2012 started, but social networking use has exploded. I see it in Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and, yes, Google+.

Avoid the Social Media Graveyard: Social With a Plan


For many, social media – in all its forms – is a steady diet of information, entertainment and interaction. It is the ultimate snack bar for informavores, serving up tasty bit-sized nuggets to tempt, tantalize, follow and consume. Therefore, it’s blatantly obvious when a part of the snack bar closes.
I don’t know about you, but I hate it when that happens. Little frustrates me more than stumbling upon a social media gravesite: the dead remnants of a poorly thought out social campaign. You’ve seen it, too, I’m sure.

Hunting for the Perfect Social Networking Platform – When HootSuite Sucks

Most of the ways to talk with people are right in front of you, in this little electronic box; we’ve all embraced social networks in one way or another. I’ve been chatting away with virtual strangers for years, whether in chat rooms, through instant messages and even with AOL. In fact, people have been communicating virtually with others now for more than two decades.

Yes, Mr. CEO – Social Media is Your Friend


I’ve been asked by several companies to speak to their PR department about their respective social media presences. As much as I’d love to take them up on the offers, though, I thought I’d at least take the time to figure out the problems they’re having.

Twitter Terrors: The Self-Proclaiming Tweeter


It’s not everyday I actually get to write about something I want to discuss. Most of my writing consists of work – whether for clients or my business, it’s still work. Every once in a while, though, you have moments in between the 9 to 5 when you’re compelled, no, forced to purge and rant. […]
