Strong slide deck for associations that aren't getting the traction they expected through their social platforms. 
Sharing this slide deck from @Kivi Leroux Miller because it is just that darn good.

I haven't been spending much time here on G+. Saw this post today that predicts eventual demise. If these numbers are true, I'd have to agree. Engaged users are the only measure of success in my mind. What's your take?

Most people in my tribe aren't bullish on G+ yet. The SEO benefits are hard to grasp/dispute for the non-techie. This post is helpful on that, don't you think?
New Features That Make Google+ a No Brainer for Business Marketing

The latest Google Plus installment from a true thought leader in helping businesses and marketers how +Google+ Your Business changes the landscape, +Mark Traphagen .

+Guy Kawasaki , if this isn't good shiitake (椎茸), I don't know what is!!!

Would love to hear if your company has already started to implement some of these suggestions!

Over on the MeCo listserve, a moderator asked what the ideal RFP is. Here's my response:

A genuine opportunity delivered to a very limited playing field, where the RFP initiator is transparent about their needs and wants, and is willing to invest the time with each RFP receiver to come to terms that are deal worthy for both sides.

Anything short of this qualifies you to be in government procurement or your job outsourced.

What would you add or change to this definition?

Anyone shifting team conference calls to skype or G+ hangouts? Does it feel like time and outcomes are improved? I might have to start shaving more regularly!

Need some help before Congress makes another bonehead move! Sign this petition and share with your network. The GSA meeting in Vegas in 2010 was a slap in the face to us tax paying citizens.

Bottom line, most meetings and conventions significantly drive major deal making and improve worker abilities and output. The GSA fiasco is an example of poor leadership and people not spending money like it was their own.

Our country would be so much better off with less regulations and more leaders making good decisions that drive the revenue side of the enterprise. Meetings and Conventions done right accelerate that better than any medium I know.

Sign this, share this and get on your soap box!

Thanks!
