If you've visited dustn.tv in the last 3 days and have been unable to download a resource because the email form wasn't loading... I'm sorry. It's fixed now.

However, if you need me, I'll be getting some ice to put on my forehead after having planted it firmly into my desk several times.

I probably missed out on 100+ subscribers because of one, stupid, seemingly insignificant JavaScript function. #rage

Social Sharing Plugins Can't Innovate, So They're Stealing

You know you're doing something right when your competitors flat out steal your features and even copy/paste your CSS. LOLz all day long!!!

Way to be creative +Mashshare! Completely stole the +Social Warfare user interface. #lamesauce #beinnovative

They do say that the highest form of flattery is imitation. So, consider us flattered. But also equally disgusted.

Thanks for +Andrea Whitmer finding this and sharing it with +Nicholas Cardot, +Jason T. Wiser, and myself. We had a good laugh.

Oh, and isn't +Mashshare the plugin that allows you to enter in fake share counts?

It's also worth noting that +CoSchedule probably does about 80hrs/month of #SocialMedia marketing for me without me having to ever do a thing!

That alone is powerful enough to give it a serious look! 
The Best Investment I've Ever Made for My Blog: CoSchedule
For planning and organizing your blog editorial calendar, CoSchedule might just be your new best friend.

If you are like me and you need to visually plan out your content, there's no better tool I've found than CoSchedule. With its beautiful user interface, powerful automation tools, and time-saving task and promotion templates, there really is no better investment I've made for my blogging.

This one tool has literally saved me HUNDREDS of hours of work in the last year alone.

Have you found a tool that allows you to plan, schedule, and execute your blogging plan? Now you have.

If you are like me and you need to visually plan out your content, there's no better tool I've found than +CoSchedule. With its beautiful user interface, powerful automation tools, and time-saving task and promotion templates, there really is no better investment I've made for my blogging.

It allowed me to get my plan solidified, helps me map out my progress with task templates. and saves me literally hundreds of hours with social templates.

There's a lot more reasons why I absolutely love CoSchedule, and I dive into all the primary reasons in the full blog post.

Do you have an editorial / marketing calendar to help you plan and execute? If not, give CoSchedule a try (free for 14 days).

Even if you do already have a system you use, it's worth looking into.

One of the new features I've installed in my new office. There will always be 2 glasses: 1 for me, & 1 just in case Jack Donaghy stops by.

The Biggest Social Media Mistake (And How to Avoid It)
As the recent fate of Vine shows us, you should never put your audience solely in someone else’s hands.

Are you working to build an audience online? If so, I want to warn you about a very serious social media mistake that I see a lot of social media stars making.

#socialmedia #mistake

So excited to start working in my brand new home office tomorrow. As long as the internet gets installed tonight.

Psychology of Marketing: Using Heuristics and Cognitive Biases (http://dustn.ws/2lsJnQl)
Sell more, convert more, and reduce complaints

Psychology is one of those subjects that can never get enough of. Understanding the human mind and how it operates should be at the front of every business owner's mind.

My buddy +Brent Robison just published a massive article that talks about some of the best psychological tactics to use in your business. He's also done a fantastic job at articulating them so that anyone can understand as well as packed it full of real-life examples.

Add this to your reading list and bookmark it for future reference.
