Finish my sentence. Social media is…

by Lee Hopkins on March 23, 2012

Stopping briefly to let us know when NOT to run a ‘finish this sentence’ game, Laurel goes on to tell us how to do it properly and even gives an example or two

Wow! This crept up on me quietly (although I wonder how anything could creep up on you noisily…) It was five years ago today that I started this blogging lark. Don’t worry, I’ve promised my wife it’s just a fad and that it won’t last. My inspiration for blogging came from interacting with Shel Holtz, […]

Why this is interesting right now: Armenian folkloric culture is being expressed digitally through a major brand name to a Russian audience across the web. Amsterdam Worldwide is unveiling its first work for Pernod Ricard with the reinvention of Ararat – a legend and institution in the world of discerning brandy drinkers, I’m led to […]

@TrevorCook and I have been around the Social Media space for a long time in Australia

I’ve just uploaded my 10-minute presentation on using video marketing within a social marketing environment to drive affiliate marketing reach

I don’t know about anyone else, but I reckon the day was a smashing success and look forward to a repeat next year (or even earlier if possible).

I will get an iPhone, not because of the hype by Gen Y-ers, but because of the hype from old farts like me. Too many people who I respect have called the iPhone revolutionary and ‘game changing’. It isn’t about ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ or trying to be ‘young and hip’; it’s about staying in touch with the wave of new technology and thinking of ways to apply it to business. It’s about staying young with my thinking, rather than letting laziness and inertia get in the way of mental recharge and regeneration.

Too many people lost out during the dotbomb era and I’m not convinced this ‘give it all away’ model is completely dissimilar. How does one eat whilst waiting for those greater rewards?

Rumour has it that your humble scribe will be sharing a podium with @JayBerkowitz and the rather marvellous @silkcharm, scribbling down their gems on social media and the affiliate business

So it was fantastic to finally chat with someone who, like me, believes that email is STILL a fundamental part of the marketing toolkit.
