It makes my heart race looking at this lineup.

Booking guests for a Hangout/Podcast is NOT easy business. Ask +Mia Voss,  +Jason T. Wiser or any interview-based show host.

This is why my heart started to race when I looked over the schedule of guest we have coming to Content Warfare TV.  

If you're not subscribed to the video replays on Youtube, http://goo.gl/My8UpZ, or the podcasts on iTunes, http://goo.gl/o6u9G6, do it now.

This is OUR show. 

I don't make any money producing Content Warfare, (though I am open to sponsorship with the right opportunity). My primary goal is and will always be exposing you, my amazing audience and friends to the Internets most prolific content creators and extracting their secrets to winning the battle for attention online.

If there's a guest you'd love to see, tell me.

How to Crowdfund Your Next Book
and other tips for becoming an author.

This week we're joined by +Guy Vincent, the founder of Publishizer, a book publishing preorder engine helping authors activate their audience and get books into their hands.

NOTICE: I'm using Publishizer for my new book Content Warfare, but I'm in no way being compensated for having Guy on. The platform is gangster and I honestly believe it can help more would-be authors work into the world.

I asked Guy to join us on Content Warfare TV to discuss some of the questions authors have around this unique form of publishing:

1) What is crowdfunding and how does it work?
2) How is crowdfunding my book different from self-publishing and traditional publishing?
3) How do I know if crowdfunding my book will work for me?

...and then so many more questions on book publishing in general (Guy has a deep knowledge in publishing).

If you've ever considered writing a book, but you're not sure where to start than this is CAN'T MISS episode.

Connect with Guy here: http://www.publishizer.com/

How to Get InstaResults on Instagram
and other awesome things we can learn from the fabulous +Sue B. Zimmerman on visual content marketing.

If you're not mixing visuals into your content marketing, than your brand is suffering online. At a minimum it's not reaching it's potential.

That's why I asked Sue B Zimmerman, the #instagramgal  who's taking Google+ by storm with her electric personality and elite visual content marketing skills.

After watching her twin daughters on  #instagram  she took to the platform and transformed her seaside shop in Cape Cod. But it doesn't stop there, she's also the author of Get Your#Hashtag On and creator of the #instaawesome  Instagram training course.

The energy alone you're not going to want to miss this one.

Does Content Curation Make Your Marketing Suck?
This question will be answered in an EPIC verbal battle between +Dino Dogan and +Ralph M. Rivera to the figurative death.

If you haven't read it yet, Ralph posted an article title, In Which I Discuss Why Content Curation for Marketing Sucks, read it here: http://goo.gl/TgzURf

Dino does not agree. 

Dino does not agree so vehemently that he decided to publicly call Ralph out on Facebok. It's funny, find it here: http://goo.gl/n0CIIh

The gauntlet was thrown and to our luck, they've decided to broadcast their verbal battle over the importance of Content Curation here on Content Warfare TV for our viewing pleasure.

For many on Google+ content curation is a HUGE part of their brand building strategy... I can't wait for this episode.

Get more from Ralph at +Web.Search.Social and here: http://www.websearchsocial.com/

Why we should take the "Writer" label seriously
and other things +Copyblogger is doing right.

Here's my thought on this article:

Those who get what +Raubi Perilli is saying are already doing things the way they should be done. The people who don't get this article, think its silly or even elitist, will never get it.

Holding ourselves to a higher standard is ALWAYS a good thing.

=======

I'd also like to comment on what Copyblogger is doing with Google+ and comments.

As you probably know Copyblogger removed traditional comments from their blog. What they're doing instead is driving people who'd like to comment to Google+... Where real conversations happen.

Love it... genius... kinda pissed that I've been working finding a way to do this that I liked for a while and then Copyblogger comes along and makes it look easy.

=======

Thoughts on being a writer or comments on Google+?

Are You Really a Writer … Or Just a Copyist?

It seems that no one really knows what it means to be a writer. In fact, some people make the mistake of confusing a copyist with a writer. 

It might seem silly to think that we could argue about the virtues of a copyist over a writer, but the keyword-focused online marketing industry created and fueled a market that was looking for this exact type of writer.

But even now that the rules of the Internet have changed, and quality content written by real writers is all the rage, the copyists are still around.

Which brings us to tomorrow's post. Raubi Perilli helps draw a clear line in the sand. Stay tuned.

How to Build an Audience Online
in a world of email and social media marketing.

This week on Content Warfare TV, we're joined by +Jeffrey Rohrs, the head of +ExactTarget's Marketing Insights team.

I've listened to Jeff on +Jay Baer's Social Pros Podcast for awhile now. Then I had the opportunity of listening to Jeff on a panel discuss at +Social Media Examiner's Social Media Marketing World conference last month and Jeff stood out head and shoulders above the other panels... Dude is smart and I had to have him on the show.

Our conference will focus on the topics inside Jeff's book Audience: Marketing In the Age of Subscribers, Fans & Followers.

I'd also like to dive into:

1) What analytics actually mean to our business,
2) What social analytics are important and
3) How we use analytics to better serve our clients.

If you're serious about growing your business in the digital world this is a CAN'T MISS episode.

Find more for Jeff here: http://www.exacttarget.com/blog/author/jeffrey-rohrs/ and his book here: http://www.audiencepro.com/

Building an Honest Online Business
and other secrets from a Jedi Master of doing it the right way.

Content Warfare TV is honored to be joined by +Corbett Barr, co-founder of +Fizzle and all around cool dude.

Keeping the superlatives to a minimum, Corbett has experienced more online business success than most of us could ever hope to... but what makes Corbett special (as sad it this might be in some respects), is that he's done it the right way.

Authenticity, honesty, hardwork... If you've ever listened to the Fizzle Show Podcast you can hear the respect +Chase Reeves, (former Content Warfare Podcast guest) and +Caleb Wojcik have for the work Corbett has done. I think that says something about how he's done it.

I've asked Corbett to join us to talk about how we can do this in our own businesses. How do we avoid falling into the schemes and tricks and gimmicks and funnel tactics that make people hate doing business with us?

As online and offline worlds converge, I think this question is as important as any we can ask about achieving success.

Statistical Analysis Proving the Convergence of our Online and Offline Worlds
and what happens when network online like a human.

I've read this post three times now, trying to figure out which of literally hundreds of takeaways I wanted to share.

If you're not familiar +martin shervington initiated case study here on Google+ using the hashtag #PlusTheZuck  to track how messages throughout the community. Using +Lee Smallwood's +NOD3x tool Martin was able to analyze how the campaign spread across Google+.

Here's my takeaway...

Human relationships rule Google+. Who spread Martin's campaign the furthest? +Mark Traphagen and +Dustin W. Stout two individuals I know Martin has built human relationships. 

Just like in the offline world, networking, relationship building, supporting others without expectation of reciprocation... these ideals create the connections that drive true social reach. 

NOD3x is able to show the reach of each share and reshare in the context of the overall reach of the campaign.

Its amazing really, Google+ is rapidly becoming the convergence point for the online and offline worlds. Not necessarily because of tools like Google Glass (though it plays a part), but more for Google+'s embodiment of how business is does IRL.

It astonishes me that more mega-brands aren't here engaging and harnessing the power of #theplus . Just look at lack of effort on the part of +Red Bull, +Coca-Cola and +Allstate Insurance who could be CRUSHING it if they tried understand what Martin has shown in this study.

Consumers want their digital experience to mirror their online experience.

How are you helping provide that to them?
