Being manly on the Manly Pinterest Tips Show!

Really looking forwards to getting to chat with Mr. Manly himself, +Jeff Sieh​ on the +Manly Pinterest Tips​ Show in a couple of hours (830pm BST and 330pm CST).

It was so good to meet Jeff at #SMMW15 and I really enjoyed chatting with him. And now I get the chance to chat with him more on a live Hangouts on Air - and you are invited to watch and participate by asking questions!

Hope to see you then!

Sure +Ian Anderson Gray.  The NFC is just so the App turns on when you put it into Google cardboard, or other form a goggles, right?  Maybe it does not have that.  I have to turn it on first and get it going before I place the phone in the goggles.

Have you discovered the Secret of BADASS?

If you get the chance to read The Content Code by +Mark Schaefer - you will be in for a shock. The secret of the Content Code is totally BADASS!  I don't normally say the phrase "bad ass", because here in the UK an Ass is not a bottom, it's a donkey (some Brits would call the bottom an "arse"- but let's not go there).

This doesn't have anything to do with Mark's Google Pants either (which you will know all about if you listen to the Marketing Companion podcast).

No, BADASS is the secret to anything, and if you want to find out, you'll just have to read the book.

Here was the moment that Timothy and I discovered the secret of the Content Code....

Seriously Social Interviews at ‪#‎SMMW15‬: Steve Rayson from BuzzSumo

Finally getting round to publishing some of the videos I made at ‪#‎SMMW15

‬It was a real pleasure to meet this chap- +Steve Rayson from +BuzzSumo. He's a top bloke, and a deep thinker. As well as that, his tool, Buzzsumo is a fantastic social media tool which you really need to check out.

In the mini interview, I ask him to explain a little about what Buzzsumo does and why you should use it as well as asking him how he was getting on at Social Media Marketing World

Fun at Social Media Marketing World on a Live Google Hangouts on Air

Yesterday, I had a fun impromptu live Google Hangouts on Air with the wonderful +martin shervington yesterday with +Ronnie Bincer, +Jeff Sieh  and +Wade Harman

Really great fun! I've loved meeting these guys in person and getting to know them better.

Today I had another chat with Martin- he's such a genuine and kind guy- also very deep thinking and very funny. I have to say ‪#‎SMMW15‬ has really blown me away!
