One of the biggest, but perhaps most overlooked, opportunities in content marketing is the ability to use data to help inform and build upon your own strategies. When starting off with a content marketing strategy and tactical plan, you may feel overwhelmed by the constantly changing landscape. But knowing that the answers to your big questions lie in both your own data and third-party data should provide some relief. A typical problem is determi...

My interview with Demian Farnworth at Copyblogger about +Google Glass 
 
Google Glass Offers a First-Mover Advantage You Shouldn’t Overlook

Ever seen anyone wearing Google Glasses? Ever wonder what it's like when wearing them? Ever wonder if they are just a fad ... or something writers and content marketers should be paying attention to?

In other words, does Glass have a future? 

And since we’re on the subject of Google, how much attention should we give Google+ now with the departure of +Vic Gundotra, the man who spearheaded the project? Does Google+ have a future? 

If these were questions you always wanted to ask but were ever afraid to, fear not, because in tomorrow's post +Demian Farnworth talks to Google Glass expert +Rob Garner.

And Rob will answer all of Demian's burning questions such as "What's it like wearing an iPhone strapped to your face?"

Stay tuned.

Very pleased to announce that I am volunteering for The Vine Foundation, a North Texas 501(c)3 non-profit community charity, serving as its president.

I am still a full time consultant, but after six months of volunteering for this great organization, I was asked tp step up my role.

One of the first initiatives is an exciting new program called The Digital Career Center, which serves veterans, domestic abuse victims, and low income heads of household by providing free digital career training and advisement.

Please take the time to look at the sites, and also help spread the word.
