+Ann Handley  looks at the difference between 'popular' and 'great'.
The crazy success of 50 Shades of Grey is proof that content doesn't have to be good to succeed. But is this what we should strive for as marketers?

Please check it out -- and share it if you like it!

+Fiona Campbell-Howes 's comment to my recent post on listicles was so good, I copied it from LinkedIn and stuck it in the post itself.

Do the one-vendor super-shows deliver return on the massive investment? Probably ,but sometimes I wonder...
When the internet was new, a lot of people predicted it would kill the trade show. Why spend all that time traveling and walking the aisles when you could stay at home Googling?
