Ironic. They used to call Google + a ghost town. Now it's Twitter.

+Vincent Johnston Yeah, me too - Not sure how long ago I joined. I was a very regular user, but scaled my time here way back, when it seemed Google were about to kill it off. Just curious how helpful people find it now.

Some thoughts on content marketing and automation.
Don't let the robots kick your ass. http://jimsmarketingblog.com/2016/07/24/marketing-blogs-content-marketing/ #contentmarketing   #marketingautomation   #hacks   #justdothefuckingwork  
If you’re currently churning out content, as part of your marketing mix, you’ll soon be in big trouble. On Friday, the Guardian newspaper reported on a piece of software, which is capable of writing articles. The end result reads like most of the content marketing out there. Somewhat dull. However, it scores way better than …

Rule number 1 for smashing your targets! http://jimsmarketingblog.com/2016/07/29/marketing-blogs-measure/
How will you know when you have enough: Customers? Contacts? Money? Profit? Subscribers? Twitter followers? Put a number on it. Be intentional. Get specific. It’s impossible to hit a target, when you don’t know what you’re aiming at. Let's grow your business: I can help you build a more successful business, increase your sales and …

Spreading the creative love.
#create  
 

Google+ Create goes global

In March we launched Google+ Create (g.co/PlusCreate) so that the best creators and curators could get the recognition and audience they deserve. We were thrilled to welcome talent from every country, interest, age and background in the world. As we’ve grown our membership we’ve also added new benefits (https://plus.google.com/+LukeWroblewski/posts/UpjjT5XF2Tz).

Today we’re introducing two new international chapters of Google+ Create:

Create em Português caters to talent from Lusophone countries such as Brazil, Mozambique, and Portugal, allowing them to create and collaborate in Portuguese.

Create India welcomes creators from India and with an Indian background giving them a place to share their passion and build a strong network.

We have also translated the Create website to all supported languages on Google+.

If you’re just getting started or want to improve your Collections, start with our Best Practices Guide: goo.gl/xZ5wlL.

Meanwhile, enjoy this beautiful theme image from Create member +Robin Griggs Wood. The tree is decorated with symbols of our diverse interests. In her own words: the flowers mean "blooming", the butterflies mean "freedom", the dove is "peace" so that we all get along.

Keep creating!

Now this takes me back.
 
This video of MTV explaining the internet in 1995 is everything http://tnw.me/sCifg58
In the 90s, MTV was breaking their head about this weird new technology that was taking the world by storm - the Internet.
