With his distinctive voice and great tips for finding money and work, Marty Nemko was certain to be a household name — or so I’d thought. But many people, whom I told that I’d be going to hear him at the Marin Professionals meeting this week, didn’t know him. So that’s one of many reasons […]

How am I doing? My online presence roadmap 2-week checkup

Post Thumbnail of How am I doing? My online presence roadmap 2-week checkup

Two weeks ago I made a commitment to manage my online presence. Discipline is key, but broadcasting intentions into cyberspace has a way of keeping one on the straight and narrow. Too many people to make excuses to if objectives aren’t met. So how have I done? Below is my “roadmap” list, followed by my […]

Managing MY Online Presence: A Road Map

Post Thumbnail of Managing MY Online Presence: A Road Map

Where do I WANT to go? NOT Where am I going? I’m remembering the quote I often tell students: “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.” Back on July 1, I started to think about “managing” my online presence, i.e., putting some routine in place primarily to help […]

When one of my new PR students read last week’s post listing David Meerman Scott’s NEW RULES for PR & Marketing, he suggested that the old rules were still useful. Perhaps some “old rules” may be, but not the ones DMS pointed out. Here below is my response to Thomas’ comment: Thomas, have you ever […]

The Future is NOT just “in the future.” The Future is NOW! Just after New Year’s, a friend told me she was spending three hours a day on Facebook. “How could you be wasting so much of your life!” I’d asked her — genuinely concerned that she was “stupid” for getting caught up in all […]

Post Thumbnail of What should U TWEET: Twitter 101 Lesson 4

What’s so cool about Twitter is that there are NO rules: it’s like the “Wild West” where anything goes — as long as you use 140 characters or less. Q: Why devote an entire post to this subject? A: The 19th century poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said that “We are always looking for […]

So, once again, is Facebook a waste of time? Last post we tried to address the responses of naysayers — the “non early adopters,” the social media non-initiates.
