It's true...part art and part science!
 
The Modern Marketer should be Part Artist and Part Scientist
Part artist, part scientist

Now that's a good way to demonstrate some of the tasks that bloggers, small business owners and internet marketers go through on daily basis. 

Digital marketing is certianly not as simple as some folks might believe it to be. 

Cool infographic by +Pardot and +Salesforce!

Here is an article making some good points about marketing to millennials (those who are 15-35 ish) - this uses the context of political advertising - what is more difficult to market than politics (and religion)? Great things to consider in here for both business and non-profits for reaching this group with your story.
If you're having a hard time getting your message through to millennials, take a lesson from another group trying to crack the code: the GOP.

Here is a good post that challenges pastors to teach and preach with a style to reach unbelievers.

We all need to learn how to be better networkers. This article will give you some good tips.

"You have to have a generous spirit. The greatest networkers I know genuinely like to help others."
Stop treating your schmoozing like a business card collection contest. Start over with a new goal: quality always trumps quantity.

Tagline
David Tonen is a marketing, communications, and technology strategist.
Introduction
My name is David Tonen and I am the Marketing Navigator at MinistryStory.com where I help churches with their marketing and communications strategies. I also work with small business owners to refine their communications tools through my company Marketing Integrity.

I love to educate church leaders so I write about communications strategies on my church marketing blog, through The Gospel According to Google, and through my church marketing podcast.

I am also a church planter and leadership team member of LifeBridge Community Church and I manage JesusAtlantic.com to help churches in Atlantic Canada to communicate and network together.

Suggested G+ Circles:
  • church marketing
  • church communications
  • church websites
  • church leadership
