I’m arrogant. Slow to make decisions. Unique. Unreliable. Not able to take “no” for an answer. Funny. Overly critical. Inconsistent. And limited. I’m also a perfectionist. A one trick pony. Too apologetic. Candid. Fickle. Highly motivated. Difficult to approach. Superficial. Sarcastic. Engaging. And my headshot makes me look like I have a hunchback.

And it’s all true. 

Allow me to explain...

Working on my post for Tuesday and thought that now would be the perfect time to procrastinate and spam Google+ with the link of last weeks post again! Hope you guys don't mind!
How many times have you allowed someone to make their emergency, your emergency? Or their work, your work? Or their problem, your problem?

It's long past time for all of us to start rethinking homelessness.

Tonight +Greg Trujillo​ and I are proud to see the Rethink Homelessness campaign, our social media pet project for the last year and a half, start trending nationally on Twitter.

For every tweet, Instagram, or Facebook post tonight with #rethinkhomelessness, the Orlando Solar Bears are donating a dollar to end homelessness in our region.

Now, how cool is that?

If you have a minute to spare a tweet-- head over and light up #rethinkhomelessness tonight!

Unless you have spent the last few weeks living amongst the chimpanzees, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about the latest Internet plaything. It’s called Periscope. And it’s kind of like if YouTube and Snapchat had a baby while Twitter watched the conception and commented on it in real time. Sort of.

Anyway. It’s an app for your phone that allows you to shoot video. However, there’s one little caveat. The video is broadcast live in real time for the whole Internet to see.

And you know what that means, don’t you?

+Eli Fennell I would be a little concerned. I'm pretty sure the last time +Chris Jenkins called someone a "periscope master" it had something to do with a peep show.

I am so over this. 
I routinely say, "So not my problem." Or "And...why is this my problem?"  Or...my favorite one when people are telling me the drama stories "I'm sorry -I just really don't care about all that."  

This might be why I don't go out on a lot of girl's night outs. LOL

This is a really great video +Marc Ensign  I was expecting the barking dog to get the same air time as everyone else. Dad's time was very touching. Great tune to wrap it up too.

My mission is to save the Internet. To connect the dots and humanize the web.
Introduction
My name is Marc. And my mission is to save the Internet. 

I know. It sounds like a pretty big undertaking. Perhaps a bit misguided. Or maybe even maniacally delusional that I would even attempt to single-handedly take on correcting the course of the Internet as it rapidly heads for a catastrophic collision with bad taste and vulgar commercialism.  

But that's only because you don't know me. Yet. 

Since 1998, I have been actively involved in the world of digital marketing as a speaker, author and consultant. And I have the fancy schmancy statistics to prove it:
  • I am responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in products and services sold online by my clients.
  • I have helped tens of thousands of people around the world live their dream on the Internet.
  • I have earned billions of page views for myself, my company and my clients.
In other words, I don't just talk about it. I do it.

I speak and write about how to succeed online by humanizing the web. With integrity. With passion. With humor. And with a trail of success behind me that goes back over 15 years.

But let me be clear. I am not just another search engine optimization guy. Or some "guru" claiming to have the secret formula to social media domination. I won't teach you how to get rich overnight. Or make promises that are too good to be true.

My approach to Internet marketing is different. It's not the same old fluff you are used to hearing. So, if you are looking for a better mousetrap, you just found it. 

As a Speaker...
My stage experience began 20 years ago as a professional musician performing on Broadway with the show RENT. In a strange twist of events, it was this experience that  introduced me to the world of digital marketing and life as I once knew it changed forever. 

I have since traveled internationally as a dynamic speaker, sharing the stage with the likes of Chris Brogan, Gary Vaynerchuk, Scott Stratten, Jairek Robbins and some of the brightest minds on the Internet and around the world. My ideas have been spread on CNN, ABC, MSN and dozens of radio shows and podcasts.

Whether the topic is Search Engine Humanization or my viral approach to social media penned as "Being a Dick" (it's not quite what you think), my keynotes and workshops are centered around big complex ideas shared in a simple and engaging way so anyone can take immediate action without needing a PhD in computer science.

As a Writer...
I spent most of my high school career on the lower end of the bell curve in my high school English class. But that didn't stop me from publishing two books, dozens of articles and a very successful blog that has received over two million visitors since its inception in 2011.

My writing has been featured in such online and offline publications as The Huffington Post, Forbes, Jezebel, PR Daily, The New York Post, MSN, ProBlogger and many others. My downloadable e-book, an introduction to Search Engine Humanization has been downloaded over 5,000 times since its release in March of 2013. And my content has been read, shared and commented on by some of the worlds most successful bloggers such as Julien Smith, Mitch Joel, David Meerman Scott, Chris Brogan, Scott Stratten, Jairek Robbins and others.

As a Consultant...
I'm a doer. It's what sets me apart from most speakers and authors. It's one thing to talk about it. Or write about it. It's another thing to actually do it. 

And I have been "doing it" for thousands of companies around the world with my company re:think. 

Over the past 13 years since I founded re:think, we have worked with some amazing clients from local mom and pop businesses to Fortune 500 companies like Nike and American Express. Clients that were featured on Oprah, The Today Show, Ellen, Fox, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC and CNN.

And This is How I End My Bio...
Hopefully you made it this far. And hopefully you can see how committed I am to the growth of my community. The Internet.

And hopefully you can help spread the message.

I have never been punched in the face. Ever.
Education
  • Berklee College of Music
    Music Performance, 1990 - 1993
    I did a bunch of cool stuff like record jingles, movie soundtracks, live performance, etc. The only thing they didn't teach me was the proper way to flip burgers so I would be prepared to make a living as a musician!
  • Fair Lawn High School
    Getting Out Alive, 1986 - 1990
    Typical high school stuff. Take a bunch of classes. Don't pay attention. Pass notes. Get caught cutting school. Etc. My proudest moment was having to take Spanish 1 for three years in a row in order to pass.

I've had the pleasure of seeing some of Dr. Landmann's work and some of the transformations that he has done are simply amazing. If you are in the New York or New Jersey area and in need of cosmetic or reconstructive eye surgery, I highly recommend sitting down with Dr. Landmann.
