I don't think any presentation I've done since the #RCS presentation better wraps up what energizes me and is the direction I'm trying to take +SEER Interactive on "SEO" for the next 5 years - http://vimeo.com/109239356

Avoiding titles at Seer hindered the careers of our team members AFTER they left - so I changed that - http://seer.is/1HuRgdU

Kudos to you for making the change when you saw need for change.

I especially like your attitude that Title's shouldn't be used as a carrot.

I think it's also interesting to point out that if you're not on point with a person's title relative to the market, you're also doing them a disservice. Especially if you have them a title that's too high. I've seen people who have had title inflation move on to a new company, then completely fail and get fired because they're not able to perform at the level that their title represents. 

Not only did these individuals fail to live up to the expectations, they had a much harder time finding another job that fit their level because future employers pegged them to be "over qualified", which equated to 'out of our pay range' or 'won't be challenged enough with this role'.

Hopefully you can have your cake and eat it to. For me the ideal situation is to have an externally facing title that I'd put on business cards, LinkedIn, and what not, and an internal title which better represents what role you play in the overall scheme of getting things done. But I know that's largely a fantasy world since there will always be people with egos larger than their titles.

p.s. I <3'd Hard Thing about Hard Things . Great book, and really something I wish more C-Level folks read.

After 10 years, its time for Seer to give people titles, I fought HARD against it for ages, I finally cracked...here's why.

http://www.seerinteractive.com/blog/how-i-found-that-avoiding-titles-hindered-our-team-more-than-helped/
TL;DR: When someone at your company moves on after a long time, internally they got more responsibilities, but without a title change – their next employer may not see that.  HR people may not even bring them in for an interview b/c another set of applicants “moved up every year”.  You are doing a disservice … Continued

2 sizeable developments coming to the neighborhood.
77 homes, six apartments, two commercial spaces, only one variance - but lots of discussion of both projects.

What can you get for $15 these days? Quite a bit, if you know where to look. Welcome to our new series on how best to turn a Jackson into a feast and still have enough to pay for SEPTA there and back.

Does a company moving from the burbs to the city count as a big win? I want to see another anchor, like Comcast. Taking 2 floors is not taking 2 towers ;)
A city official tries to debunk the longstanding idea that Philadelphia is not business friendly as a national survey reveals that more American companies are moving to walkable downtowns.

Great to see occupancy rates at such high levels. With all the buzz on philly lately as a top destination I'm welcoming these hotels. I think if we do end up with a glut, the Sheraton and Marriott's are in trouble though, old, dingy hotels vs aloft, element, W, kimpton, etc.
Philadelphia is in the middle of its biggest hotel-building binge since the late 1990s, as developers rush to accommodate an expected burst of business travelers, tourists, and conventioneers.

We evaluated 440,000 sites in the Google display Network to find the set of 123 that were REALLY not worth it - http://www.seerinteractive.com/blog/123-placements-to-block-on-google-display-network/

Display Targeting: Pros & Cons The Google Display Network is awesome – it serves 1 trillion impressions every month on sites such as Forbes, Walgreens, People, Fox News, Esquire, and more. Plus, Display campaigns are super reasonably priced. In industries such as education, where search can run you $15-30/click, the GDN has got you covered … Continued

Auctions for vacant properties that must be developed on in a certain amount of time, I like it.
Jim Nichols came to the auction ready to spend. But his $6,000 limit - more than twice the advertised opening bid for the vacant lot at 2646 Ritter St. in Kensington - never stood a chance.

Remember you can order by the quarter pound so don't over order. This place is really good so go for it anyway.

One of my favorite places to get brews in the hood. The burger is amazing but the rolls can be inconsistent.
