Most businesses understand they need a social media presence in much the same way that they knew they needed an Internet presence 15 or so years ago. The typical (and understandable) reactions I have heard from many businesses over the past few years is “I don’t have time” or “I don’t know what to do”....

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report. Here’s an excerpt: 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views....

A year ago I set myself a challenge. After talking about social media, blogging et al, for many years and telling others to get on board, I had never done much blogging myself. I had written some guest blogs and blogged a bit for my company, but not really grasped the nettle. So 2012 rolled...

One of my favourite examples of social media engagement is the Peter Shankman Mortons story (the Morton’s Steakhouse turned up with a free steak meal as he landed at Newark airport, after his joke tweet had requested it).

It’s OK, I can wait til you have finished. I’ll just quietly hum to myself, ho hum, hum, hum… ~~~ 11 minutes passes ~~~ Good wasn’t it? I enjoyed Brian’s beginning with the subtle mickey...

This weekend I have spent hours with some inspirational ‘can do’ guys and gals and came away awe-inspired. From 100 attendees on Friday night came 45 one-minute pitches and then over the next 2 days 14 teams were formed that worked flat out. The team I ‘mentored’ this afternoon (I did nothing, they were very...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false] The Internet is not free. Not only is this a truism, it is in fact a good thing.
