Good stuff here from +Ross Quintana  on marketing -- and humans connecting with humans. Which is really what it's all about.  

The Power of Being Real   #Branding  
I know people may think, "Hey I'm real, isn't everyone real?" In the digital age and even before that, companies and brands have been portrayed as having human traits. They were your friend, thoughtful, fun, or serious. The fact is they are none of those things, that..... is just marketing. With social media, things are

With well-paid jobs, more spending power, and better lifestyles, women are an emerging financial force. Brands that leverage this group are sure to compete more profitably in the near future. ~ +Daniel Newman  #millennials   #GenY   #Women  
Today, Millennials (individuals born after 1980) are a highly targeted advertising market. It’s not hard to see why brands are vying for attention from this generation. According to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 18-to-34 year old Americans represent nearly 23.5 percent of the population, making them the [...]

What has your experience been recruiting and hiring Millennials? What about the Millennials on your team? What differences have you seen between their work mindset and that of others on your team?

Millennials in the Workforce: What Really Matters To Them   #millennials   #workforce  
The generation born in the 1980s and early 90s, sometimes called Gen Y or, more commonly, Millennials, are now making an impact in the workplace. Born into the emerging world of technology and communication, the expectations of Millennials and their outlook on the workplace generally differs from that of their predecessors, meaning that a greater understanding of this cohort is needed in order to find, manage, inspire, and retain this much-needed...

There is a growing disconnect between customers and marketers - Here's how to close that gap:   #customerservice   #marketing  
If I were to ask a simple question–how well do you know your customers–most of you would probably say that you do. At least, that’s what most marketers like to believe. However, in reality, there’s a growing disconnect between us and them – marketers and customers – our perceptions and their realities. Not making time, …

Jessica, the founder of Rosewood Music Studio, has taught my twin girls piano lessons since they were in Kindergarten. Not only do they love her, they've flourished musically as a result of her tutelage. She is extremely talented and the fact that she comes from a musical family with a passion for music is obvious in everything she does. She is a joy to work with, makes the process of learning fun for people of all ages and is just an all around delightful person.

I can't say I've ever had a worse experience than at the hands of the ownership of Plaza Cleaners and take the time to write this review as a warning to others about trusting valuable clothing or household items to this company. I have been a Plaza Cleaners customer for over 10 years, mostly because of a wonderful woman, Shelley Winfield, who has been working there for and taking care of me and my family. I've been sending my sheets to Plaza Cleaners to be laundered for about the last four years. It is not inexpensive, but a luxury that we enjoy. I took a pair of brand new, still in the package, monogrammed new sheets that I purchased from Pottery Barn for $300 in February of 2013 to be laundered before I put them on our bed. In fact, Shelley took them out of the package for me. When I picked them up a week or so later, I saw to my horror that they were pink! As if that wasn't bad enough, the edges of the fitted sheet had been stained to a rusty color. I returned them to Shelley at Plaza Cleaners and she was equally horrified as, as I mentioned, she had taken them out of the package herself and knew what they had cost. She told me to not worry yet, that she would have them redone and was hopeful they could be fixed. When I returned to pick up the sheets yet another week or ten days later, they weren't as pink as they had been, but they were still tinged with pink. And the edges of the fitted sheet was even more stained with rust and, as an added bonus, the pillow cases had burn marks on them from the mangle used to press them. My $300 sheets were, essentially, ruined. Shelley had me fill out a damage form and assured me they would take care of it, but that I would have to take the sheets to Mr. Chung, the owner, at their other location, which is this one, on Wornall Road. I did one week ago and was unlucky enough to deal with Mrs. Chung. Her immediate reaction was to deny responsibility and advise me that sheets were laundered at the owner's risk (a policy apparently never shared with customers) and that it was too bad, but that they weren't responsible. I was later told that that policy was implemented AFTER they ruined my $300 sheets but one that was still not being communicated to customers. Another reason for writing this review. I've been patronizing this cleaner for many years and have paid them many thousands of dollars for their services. To have them not stand behind their services and to refuse to take responsibility when they damaged my property is astonishing. I will move heaven and earth to warn customers about doing business with this dry cleaner, as they are clearly not reputable in any way. Please view this review as your warning. If you value your clothing and household linens, do not patronize Plaza Cleaners. Any damage they inflict to your valuable items will not be acknowledged, nor will you ever receive any recompense for that damage. This not a reputable business, not by a long stretch.

I am staying in Orange Beach this week and was looking for a limo service to take part of my family to the airport in Pensacola for a trip home. I found Luxury Limo because of The Google and because of good customer reviews, I called them. They were prompt to respond, courteous and fabulous at taking care of my precious cargo. They didn't blink an eye when I told them I needed a 4am pickup to make a 6am flight and the driver was here early, was super in every way and my kids got where they needed to be. I definitely recommend using Luxury Limo for all your transportation needs - they are awesome.

We live in the Brookside area of Kansas City, and I've been looking for the perfect dentist for some time now. When I discovered (based on the recommendation of a friend) that Dr. Burch practiced in the neighborhood, I was excited to make an appointment and try him out. I've since sent my entire family over in the course of the past several weeks. Not only did they manage to win over my curmudgeonly husband, but they've got my kids raving, too. Today's appointment was for my 4 year old twins, who were visiting the dentist for only the second time ever. The staff is warm and loving and they ensured that my kids had so much fun while they were there, they didn't even realize what was happening. Our first dental visit was to a pediatric dentist and compared to the experience at Dr. Burch's office, we're happy we made the change. We love having a "family dentist" and a staff that knows us all, treats us as if we are part of their family and makes the "chore" of going to the dentist an enjoyable one for all. So glad we discovered Dr. Rick and his staff and look forward to many years of great interaction.
