Who wins when brands attack in retaliation against customers? 
I completely missed this story since it happened in the middle of the big Christmas rush, but I wanted to comment on it anyway because it illustrates so painfully and so perfectly just how much has changed in the world of consumer advertising and branding, and how companies still have so much to ...

To hashtag or not to hashtag? Well, it's not really a question, at least if you're talking about Facebook. As it turns out, they're pretty damn useless. For now, at least. 

Read our latest blog post on why we stopped using them on all of our accounts, and why you should, too. 
Dallas social media agency Blue Volcano Media explores the use of hashtags on Facebook and whether they're even necessary for brands.

Who DOESN'T use LinkedIn to build their networks and do some serious lead generation?

Well, a lot of business people, and that's a shame because LinkedIn is credited by a lot of businesses and entrepreneurs for connecting them with prospects who eventually turn into clients. Its lead conversion has been documented by agencies such as Hubspot, and its new tools for sales and business development are unparalleled. 

In short, if LinkedIn is not in your marketing and sales arsenal, you're missing out on a LOT of potential business. 

Our next webinar will help you get started on optimizing your LinkedIn profile and company pages to generate leads and new business. Join us on Friday, October 11, 2013, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm CDT. Click on the link below to register!

#Entrepreneurs  and #startup  founders, take note! If you've been struggling to grow your #business  -- thinking that there just isn't enough time in the day -- you NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!

One of our favorite companies, +oDesk, published a new #ebook  this week titled "Make it Work: Smart Advice From Real Life Clients Who Found Success Using Online Work," just for you. 

Our president and CEO, Marjorie R. Asturias, is one of the 7 featured startup founders in the book, so we're especially tickled blue about the book! Read how she and others have leveraged the burgeoning global talent marketplace to successfully expand their businesses and achieve their professional goals. 

Read our latest blog post for all the details: 
Regular readers of this blog know that I'm a big oDesk fan, and why not? I grew my online marketing and consulting partly by leveraging the oDesk marketplace, getting gigs writing blogs and managin...

Why we can't stand the word "disrupt," and why we'll be glad to finally see it banished from every tech/business journalist's vocabulary.
Dallas social media company Blue Volcano Media thinks "disrupt" is overhyped and oversold.

Have you ever hired an online reputation management firm? 

Are you thinking about hiring one? 

Our latest blog post sounds a warning bell about so-called reputation management companies that are little more than snake-oil salesmen at best, extortionists at worst.
Dallas social media company Blue Volcano Media takes a look at the business of online reputation management.

#Facebook  shocked everyone with their latest announcement yesterday, but guess what? It wasn't about #privacy   but about changes in their Page policies that now allow brands to run contests and other promotions without having to use a third-party app. 

Told you it was shocking. Read our latest blog post for more:

Introduction
We love coffee, chocolate, Skype, smartphones, and social media. Sometimes in that order, sometimes not.  Wherever we are, though, you can probably bet that we're indulging in at least 4 out of 5 of those wicked treats.

What do we do best? Social media and SEO. (Closely followed by talking and laughing. And lots of it.)
