Really love the work +Jennifer Havice does for us :-) 
Just wrote a follow up to my customer persona post on the ConversionXL blog. The data is overwhelming that businesses need to be more in touch with what their customers need and want.

How I Raised Over $10,000 in 21 Days to Self-Publish My First Book
what I learned from my first successful crowdfunding campaign.

On June 8th of 2014 I launched the pre-order campaign for my first book, Content Warfare, on the Publishizer crowdfunding platform.

My goal for the pre-order campaign was to raise $10,000 to pay for the expenses of producing the most professional self-published hardcover book possible.

Twenty-one days later, my book project hit the $10,000 goal, breaking the previous funding record on Publishizer by two days.

This is called “Audience Activation” and it’s key to successfully crowdfunding any project...

In which I talk with +Tia Kelly & +Georgiana Laudi about #PageFights  
This is going to be fun. 
Google+ Business Spotlight (6/25/2014)
This week we welcome +Georgiana Laudi & +Tia Kelly from +Unbounce as well as +Tommy Walker from +ConversionXL to talk about their landing page "contest" Page Fights

Page Fights is a live on-air critique of landing pages that was done not just using Hangouts On Air, but also a broader array of social and web marketing. If you've ever wanted to learn how to expand on the idea of using Hangouts On Air for business, that doesn't use the "talking head" approach, this is the show to watch!

Wait, wait... So you mean to tell me that headlines & images - the same techniques the entire dying print industry has been relying on for years, is not the most important part of social media marketing?

Ok, so even though you see it all the time, it's not as cheesy as you think.
