I can't tell you how many times I've thought this same thing when researching a solution.
 
I’d recommend that the next acquisition that some marketing cloud companies should make is a web design firm. Seriously, whatever the multiple — and I say this as a friend — it would be worth it. Acqui-hire, code red. I was struck by this last week when I was methodically checking each of their websites, …

+The Social Media Hat shares some awesome tips on saving G+ posts to read later or refer back to when you need them.
There are actually several methods you can use to save Google+ posts for later reading. Which method you choose will mostly depend on your own personal preferences and requirements. We'll review them all here.

Excellent points on why a brand should assign authorship to a person instead of the brand. 
 
Why Your Brand Shouldn't Fear Assigning Authorship

This is a brilliant blog post by +Mark Traphagen on Moz, talking about why brands shouldn't fear assigning Authorship. 

I've been a fan of Google's Authorship plans and have read countless pieces of content by Mark (As he really is the Don of Google+), but when I've spoken about it with clients I keep hitting the same questions. What happens if the Author leaves the company? Why would we promote one person? Can't we just set up a publisher profile and leave it be? 

In this piece Mark answers a number of these questions.

Key Takeouts
An individuals face is much easier to remember than an faceless brand
"People trust and listen to a person before they trust and listen to a logo."
Individuals promote trust and enhance the chances of emotional connections
If a person leaves your company their previous content will still draw traffic

Have you implemented authorship to any of your clients blogs? Have you had any successes? Please let me know:

Several asked about how to designate a work as Public Domain so I added the #CCZero  designation under #creativecommons  to my article from yesterday.

While it's not technically a Creative Commons license, it is a designation they've created so I added that for some clarification.

Highly recommend this article by +Shelly Kramer r. Too many people are just doing it all wrong and they don't even know their agencies either don't have a clue or don't care. Is your agency smoking crack?
 
You can't effectively do SEO without content and without social media. And anyone who tells you differently is smoking crack.

Thanks +Kerry O'Shea Gorgone for the great tips on how to deal with negative comments. Too often everyone gets too worked up to think through how to handle them. It's much easier if you plan in advance.
 
My latest post for +Mack Collier gives brands the lowdown on legal options for dealing with negative comments and reviews, along with a practical assessment of which options generally make the moat sense.

If you use Buffer to schedule your G+ posts, you will find this useful.
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 Buffer.

Old content doesn't have to die. Here are some ideas on when and how to refresh your blog content from Mike at +The Social Media Hat.
If you’ve been blogging for a while, even if it’s just once a week, it won’t take long to accumulate an archive of “old content.” Some of the content will be great at bringing in traffic from Google Search and links on other websites and regular social media shares, but what about the rest? If you have old articles on your site which you think should be bringing in more traffic than they are, this post is for you. Why Revive Old Blog Content? Fir...

I help businesses of all sizes develop digital marketing strategies.
Introduction

Hi, I'm Robi Garcia, owner of YV Digital Marketing Services.

I started in online marketing helping my husband with his marketing when he became a Realtor. We just started getting somewhere when the real estate market fell apart.

I enjoyed it so much, my husband talked me into going back to school to get my Bachelor's degree in Internet Marketing at Full Sail University. During my studies, I learned that I knew more than I thought I did. 

I now offer help to those seeking to understand how to better promote themselves, their company or their product. If you need help with your marketing strategy, figuring out how to increase conversions or where and how you should promote your brand, just ask and I will be glad to help.
