Two reasons I love this video: 1) it's a smart co-brand (the video is a collaboration between the band Daughter and the Tate Britain -- and the content is hosted on the Louis Vuitton NOWNESS site) and 2) it makes for compelling visual/audio theater.

How do you respond to a crippling setback? AC/DC, fighting through hard times this week, showed creative minds how to turn devastating loss into hard-fought gain with the release of "Back in Black" 34 years ago. My new blog post discusses the making of a classic whose spirit will undoubtedly buoy the band as it now finds itself responding to a crisis.

Why your brand needs to be a youtility -- my new blog post about a webinar that +Jay Baer Anna Hrach of +ethology delivered March 25. Providing useful content might not always be the sexiest way to build your brand, but being a youtility is a great way to create and keep customers.
