The +B2 Interactive team has wrapped up and launched their first podcast. Very proud of them and the first few that I've heard are entertaining and informative.
In episode 1 of the B-Sides podcast, we discuss just how well the Apple Watch has done, amidst the constant chatter that it's been nothing more than a flop.

Through the years, Google+ has seen its fair share of changes—both to its design and leadership team—but to understand where it could go in the face of changes still to come is important in determining whether or not Google+ can keep surviving the cries of “Google+ is dead.” - by +Colin Ball on +B2 Interactive 
Google+ has had a tough journey over the last four and a half years since launch. But as Google+ has changed, have the feelings of users done the same?

A more natural way to promote your brand at a time where paid may be blocked or stripped away.
The growth of ad blockers have forced marketers to find new ways to reach consumers and, going forward, the best way to do that could be through native ads.

+Max Riffner knocks it out of the park with his latest post about creativity.
Everyone is creative, despite what they've been told. Instead of letting your employees think they aren't creative, find ways to inspire their creativity.

Story
Tagline
Building B² Interactive Digital Marketing Agency Services, Growing Storage.com, the premier place to find self storage online
Introduction
After many years of off and on building an idea born more than a decade ago I decided it was time to start working on something new.  Still working with the last project but my eye is on the future with www.b2interactive.com.  Our first year flew by.  We have built a solid web presence for dozens of businesses in Omaha.  We also brought together 3 great national self storage websites, Storage.com, USstoragesearch.com and StorageUnit.com, all to be operated by B² Interactive in Omaha, NE.  

B² Interactive is a website development and internet marketing firm founded in 2012 by Brandon Taylor and I.  We build fantastic websites for Omaha businesses, yes.  Just as importantly we work to make sure they are found.  I head up our internet marketing and business development side of our company.  

B² Interactive acquired Hurrdat Social Media in Lincoln, NE in July of 2014 to grow our team with the best in social media marketing while expanding our footprint into Lincoln.
 
3 Daughters, 1 Son all between the ages of 6 months & 15 years.  An incredibly supportive wife who allows me to work at building what we are.
 
I have been involved with the development of storage related websites since building the first shop and compare self storage website nearly 15 years ago.  That grew up into the largest website and it is something we operate again.  Things really do tend to circle around in business.
 
Been working for the last 15+ years in various business development roles including website development and real estate development (mixed use, multi-family, hospitality, municipal).
 
Love travelling with my wife, throwing darts with my brothers and being perpetually disappointed in the various sports teams I follow (Huskers, Blue Devils, Lakers, Yankees).
 
Also, I possess a fantasy football curse similar to the Madden curse.  For the last 8 years a minimum of 2 out of my first 3 picks has had a season ending injury within the first 2 weeks of the season.  We may start an NFL players insurance fund where for a small fee any player can ensure that they will not be picked by me, thus protecting them from the Hipsher fantasy football curse.
Bragging rights
We not only survived first year of tech start-up life but flourished. Things are looking really good for B² Interactive and Storage.com

Hurrdat has a talented group of digital marketers who I've been able to work with in several different ways for more than 5 years now. I'm proud to have been the first person to sign up for their services on their website and over the last 5 years it has been a pleasure to watch the company evolve. For the first 4 years, my relationship with Hurrdat was as a client. They provided content marketing services for brands I worked with including both long-form content (primarily targeted blogs & articles) as well as a series of social posts to support the articles. Hurrdat continued to evolve to match a rapidly changing digital/interactive marketing medium. Their social services became more robust and targeted to meet a campaigns goals. The team also grew and started to become much more well rounded digital marketers leading me to place the full social efforts of one national brand solely in their hands. Their success with this project led us to investigate the possibility of a merger of our companies, which finally made sense in early 2014. After months of making sure a merger would be beneficial to clients and employees we completed the acquisition in July of 2014. Since the merger I have had the opportunity to work with this talented team in a new way and find ways to push the limits of what is possible with digital marketing for our clients. I have had the ability to work with this really passionate team to further advance the services offered by both our offices through the merger of Hurrdat's great social and content services with our own SEO, web development and other marketing services. It's been an amazing five years of working together and I'm really looking forward to the future with this team.

Dr. Vondra was very attentive to my needs. I have a severe dentist-aversion problem that he helped to quell. Service was quick and the entire staff was very friendly. Everything that I needed, my options and post treatment expectations were fully and clearly explained by Dr. Vondra.
