    As I’ve spoken on stages all over for years on Social Media, there is something that I’ve observed countless times.  Many people seem to think that if they can just gather a bajillion connections on Social Media sites, then the clouds will part and the money will fall out of the heavens.  This thought actually reveals far more about these people than they probably even realize about themselves.  It reveals that they think of people as commodities and they have a lottery mentality regarding wealth.  How naive.

    However we are offline, we are probably the same way online, because we can’t outrun our character.  No matter where we go, there we are.  You can tell a heck of a lot about someone by looking at their Social Media profiles, just like you can tell a lot about them if you chat with them at a networking event.  If all they do is talk about themselves, they’re only thinking of themselves.  You don’t need a psychology degree to figure that one out.

    Video marketing for the camera shy is a common problem especially if you are a video marketing newbie whose entire experience of being on camera amounts to some holiday video footage that you would rather not share with the world.

    Whether or not you are camera shy when it comes to video marketing for your business you should persevere with other types of video marketing until you feel confident enough to step out in front of the camera yourself.

    Just how serious is your business about the digital channels?

    Any other year, I may have used the words “online channels” instead of “digital channels,” but 2010 tilted the marketing world a whole lot more. We can’t just talk about world-class websites and getting found on the search engines anymore. The pervasiveness of mobile smartphones (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry), tablets (iPad, Samsung, Dell) and the entire app economy that surrounds it is quickly becoming a dominant business force.

  • Gutenberg changed the world. The Internet can do it again

    A medieval gem-cutter once set out to exploit pilgrims viewing holy relics. These relics were so old and fragile -or possibly so phoney -that the faithful could view them only from a distance.

    The plan was to sell pilgrims mirrors that would capture reflections of the relics, thus staying with the observer forever. Plague ended the pilgrimage and the gem-cutter was stuck with product but no market.

    Then, a brainwave. He’d pay off creditors with revenue from a machine he’d devise to copy manuscripts that required armies of monks.

    Johannes Gutenberg’s mechanical printing press produced 3,600 pages in a day where a monk in the scriptorium produced four.

    But people didn’t use Gutenberg’s press to reproduce only religious works. They printed philosophy, fiction, political tracts, experiments, observations, dissents, arguments, plays, poems, financial statements and pornography, history and eyewitness accounts of great events.

    Gutenberg’s invention shattered the power of feudal lords, reconfigured the global economy, and triggered the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation and the scientific and industrial revolutions.
