Change Your Passwords Now

What's being called the "one of the biggest security threats the internet has ever seen" - the Heartbleed Bug is pretty scary. 

For all the non-techies out there it's basically a weakness that affects a whole lot of websites and may have exposed your data (passwords, credit card numbers, etc.) to people unknown. 

Visit the page below to see a working list of affected sites and whether or not you need to change your password on those sites.

New landscape requires customer centricity. Involves culture, collaboration, a new mindset.

Reminder to focus on customers, especially the power-users don't let acquisition strategies drive them away physically or emotionally. #customerexperience

I've bookmarked this. Love to journal; however, some real value in less, reflecting and asking questions. Off to ponder.

Introduction
I am the owner of Strategic Marketing Solutions, LLC, that delivers strategic integrated marketing solutions.  I believe relationship marketing has a whole new meaning these days. 

Social media and technology are fundamentally changing the way consumers buy and smart companies are adapting the way they go to market.

I believe relationship marketing entails inbound marketing and traditional marketing.  There really is no one size fits all marketing strategy. 

Consumers are more savvy than ever, studies show they trust each other more than traditional marketing messages.  

Listening, gathering insights, creating valuable content, delivering an exceptional customer experience are all necessary to stand out in the rapidly changing world we live in.

I enjoy working the collaborative process of developing marketing strategies that are aligned across all stakeholders internally and externally.
