Ha! I love this list from +Michael Brenner on 29 Signs Your Business Is Not Ready for #ContentMarketing 

The companies doing it right know that it requires a culture change.

Do you post vacation photos while out of town? +Sarah Rhea Werner  shared with +KELOLAND TV why you should think twice before doing so.
Nowadays, being so transparent on social media might not necessarily be a good thing.

Where else can you have a weather report of a high of 71 with a 100% chance of snow? Meanwhile, having tornadoes and blizzards just a few miles apart? South Dakota of course. Meanwhile, here in NW Iowa we get hit with some nasty winds trimming our trees while waiting on our snow. It was almost exactly one year ago today we got hit with a nasty couple of ice storms.

So Hasbro has decided to put GI Joe onto the Amazon Kindle Worlds service.  Great Idea.  Of course there are always rules with these kinds of things and the rules for GI Joe are mostly what you would think (ie. no illegal stuff, no sex stuff, etc.), but there is one rather interesting rule (#15) that could only apply to a Rhode Island based Hasbro property such as GI Joe.   15) The character, Snake Eyes, shall never be depicted or described as a fan of the New York Yankees.

Anyone else think Bob Ross (Joy of Painting) has a similar voice to Phil Robertson (Duck Dynasty)?

A good SEO “expert” will look beyond drawing high volumes of traffic to a client’s website and instead focus on gaining the right traffic and converting that traffic into customers.

A great SEO expert will go one step further....

Find out what that extra step is in my latest +Click Rain blog post.
Getting a lot of visits doesn’t mean much if you can’t convert any of those visits into customers.

AdBirds by AdWords!  A lot of cool work went into this one, including specific text for each bird.

You might want to review your web page title and make sure you are providing larger images on your blog posts.  There have been several changes to our favorite platforms this past week.  Oh and get ready, Facebook Pages are getting a new look too.

Nearly hit a Bald Eagle with the car this morning on the way into work/school. Okay, it was probably at least 10-15 yards above the car, but still, that is the closest I have ever been to a Bald Eagle in the wild before. Tasha was excited and couldn't wait to tell everyone at school.

Gray only exists because we have not taken the time to determine the black and white of the situation.
Introduction

I was born in 1975 on the edge of the Appalachian region in the small city of Zanesville, Ohio. I went to both a Private K-12 School and a Private College.

I graduated with a degree in Communications of which I had a concentration in Broadcasting and a Minor in History.

I have lived in large (Tampa, FL), small (Zanesville, OH), and rural (Rock Rapids, IA) areas and visited 44 states and two Canadian provinces.

I enjoy various hobbies, such as collecting GI Joe ARAH figures and comic books, web design/codingHardy Boys Casefiles, and playing and umpiring softball.

I married Gwendolyn (Fluker) Jacob on Saturday, January 8, 2005. Tasha G. Jacob was born a month early on Saturday, October 1, 2005. Connor W. Jacob was born almost two months early on May 13, 2010.

I am currently involved in marketing in the area of website analytics, seo, ppc, and social media. I am Google AdWords and Analytics Qualified
