For all of you DIY business owners out there, here's a free course by Google Analytics: https://analyticsacademy.withgoogle.com/course01/

If there's one thing you should dive into - it's your analytics. These numbers literally tell you where you should and should not be putting your marketing dollars. The entire course takes about 4-6 hours. Good luck!

Thinking about using Native Ads as part of your strategy? Check out this article by +Ryan Skinner of +Forrester Research 
One thing can be said definitively about native advertising: It is poorly understood. It’s advertising, but shouldn’t act like it (even though it should definitely be labeled as such).

Why Guest Posting is Still Critical to Content Marketing

Here is my 2nd official article in Forbes.  This time I dive deep into why guest posting remains a big part of content marketing.  Of course, I am not talking about the type of guest posting that +Matt Cutts went after in his "stick a fork in it" rant.

Instead, high value, authoritative placements.  And as an FYI, the link below points to (wait for it) .... a guest post (or guest column perhaps) on Forbes.

+The Social Media Hat put together this post (and we're already using it!). This clears up some frustration over G+/Hootsuite integration => How to Mention a Google+ User or Business with HootSuite http://ow.ly/tPJlB
I’m going to show you exactly how you can in fact mention a Person or Business any time you post to your Google+ business Page using HootSuite.
