Nice videos throughout - I had already shared the "Like a Girl" video because I raised two daughters to do things "like a Vickery Girl".

"The thing is, while social media was brand new, and is still relatively new, basic marketing and business practices are actually pretty old. "

We’re all so busy trying to figure out how to reach customers, we forget that we too are customers! We buy a lot more than we sell

"Marketing Hates Sales Hates Marketing" +Amy McCloskey Tobin comes to a conclusion based upon reality.

Post via +SteamFeed 
My Confession: I am and will always be a salesman at heart. Having spent 20 years in the retail and wholesale sales trenches, at my core I will forever see myself as a ‘salesman.’ It’s not the adrenaline rush that attracts me. Nor is it the money, but rather, it’s the building of very human relationships …

Enjoyable post - good rallying cry for the 20-somethings.

Every 20-something has much to offer. Focus on your talents and gifts and give it your all - what every 20-something needs to do.

Got acronyms?!? Post by +Brooke Ballard via +SteamFeed 
Whether you’re dabbling in social media or making a career out of it, there’s a language among us social media geeks that you’ve probably heard bellowed down the halls of Facebook, and babbled in Twitter chats. While there are probably hundreds or more of social media acronyms out there, we’re going to focus on 40 …

This is where I like our own Pulse Analytics. We can help track a lot of these influencer metrics, like sentiment and effect, right out of the chute. Bur our ability to integrate other datasources (external like Google Analytics or internal like marketing spend or resource allocation) allows us to really customize to suit the client.

Some people "Post, forgive, and forget." - but the internet never forgets, so those negative comments can impact the purchase decisions for many more consumers...even if the original consumer has already forgiven the brand and re-established brand loyalty.

The power of influence means we buy when an influencer says buy and we don't when they complain. This can sometimes affect your organization negatively.

Story
Tagline
Social media monitoring and sentiment analysis - without engagement - is like diagnosing an illness and refusing the cure.
Introduction
I love my wife and two daughters. I am blessed in that I also love my job as a principal and EVP of the Rocky Mountain Region for Mantis Technology Group. I am very excited about our Pulse Analytics and Pulse Athletics SaaS offerings for social media monitoring, sentiment analysis and engagement. Both products are great examples of what Mantis can accomplish for clients with our business analysis, data architecture, software development, business intelligence, and project management services. 

I enjoy teaching. I focus on playing tennis nowadays, but I still love judo and soccer. I root for the Denver Broncos, the Denver Nuggets, and the Texas Longhorns. I graduated UT-Austin. I've discovered that I like to write, so I look forward to your comments on blog posts.
Bragging rights
Been married over 24 years and love my wife more than ever. Very proud of my two daughters (both in college and one is married with one beautiful son and another child on the way). 4.0 tennis player aspiring to get back to 4.5. Shodan in Judo, but hung up my gi to focus more on tennis (including mixed doubles with my wife).
