There is fine Waterford crystal, that will ring elegantly when tapped no matter how thick and chunky it may look, and then there are Flintstone jelly glasses. You may drink your Dom Peringnon from either one, but friends, there is a difference!

-Stephen King

Grannelle, or more specifically, I, is/am probably not the first choice of many in the Twitterverse to follow. I'm always open to connecting on LinkedIn, and never ignore friend requests on Facebook (except…

The line between profound talent and profound disability is a surprisingly thin one. -Daniel Tammet

Whenever I encounter this query, I am tempted to ask in response, “What can’t LinkedIn do for you?” It can’t assure your promotion, or even promise you a gig. It won’t automatically increase your popularity or recognition in your profession. And it certainly…

The Problem Of ROI As A Sole Basis For Social Media Campaign Decisions

-Immanuel Kant

ROI is a popular mandate when deciding whether to enter into the enterprise venue of Social Media in these times. ROI (Return On Investment) is a cost/benefit analysis. It requires that all costs and benefits be stated in perceptible currency. As such, it is generally much easier to quantify…

Social Media Adoption and The Stages of Grief

For businesses embarking upon pivotal and difficult foundational change (like this whole social-media-integration-into-business thing), there are distinct stages that very closely resemble the traditional “stages of grief” we’ve come to know around loss in our personal lives.

What Would Happen if You Took a Break from Social Media?

Every once in a while we have the opportunity to read or view something that stops us in our tracks. Scott Stratten’s recent Oakville TEDx talk, Keep going until you stop, qualifies (an absolute must see).

Scott’s talk prompted me to take a deeper look at a couple of things – our evolving relationship with technology and its impact on our ability to be genuinely engaged. The…

Sweaty Armpits and Social Media Authenticity

We’ve all had it happen before. Maybe on the way to a job interview, on a first date, it might even be happening to you right now. Sometimes there’s a good reason, but sometimes it just sneaks up on you and bam, there it is: sweaty armpits. Those pit stains are like your mistakes in social media. It happens fast; it’s embarrassing; and there’s no way to cover it up.

It’s also 100% natural. And it happens to everyone. The question is? How do you…

But this drives me crazy insane. Here’s why.

Partnership Marketing Now Means Sharing Your Audience

Partnership marketing has been around for a long time. It wasn’t uncommon for Bill Smith’s Plumbing Service to get ad dollars from a big brand such as Kohler for Yellow Page ads if in fact Bill Smiths Plumbing carried Kolher bath and kitchen plumbing fixtures.
