Over the last several years I've been deeply involved and focused on migration planning, system design, and implementation of Google Apps and Messaging.  The results of Google Apps implementations have been the successful deployment and migration of customers to Google Apps for Gov’t & Enterprise.  

While customer satisfaction has been vital in the success of these projects; more importantly, building trust with partners, customers and users has allowed for consistent transitions in the cloud computing model of doing business.

Keeping it Real
Is it just a mantra or can it be used as a strategy?

Join the conversation right now! We're already listening. Just use  #RealSMTPowerTalk  @socialmedia2day to start talking about keeping it real in social... Start talking, we're listening!

"Keep it Real" is the latest mantra marketers use on the social web. Just like bold letters in text it works only when it stands out. Or does it?

Can "Keep it Real" be part of an evergreen strategy?

If it's a strategy can it be real, at least in the sense we understand it? These are questions that cut to the heart of what we do across the web. How we interact and why. Traveling down this rabbit hole with us is +Vincent Messina, a marketer who takes an uncompromising approach to the social web.

We're already four episodes into the #SMTPowerTalk for Social Media Today, so what better time to tackle the complex idea of keeping it real? Keeping an eye on the social web will be +Alexandra Riecke-Gonzales while +David Amerland tries to keep things on the straight and narrow. Keeping the web together and production flowing, as always will be +John Ellis of +SEOWiSE. Join us and find out how deep this tunnel runs...

I was curious what variety of Local Pack displays there might be across devices, OS & screen sizes. I used a responsive testing tool to find out. 

The results are interesting to say the least. The variety is legion.

For the longest time I struggled to give a straightforward answer to a question: "What systems should I work on first."  I'd always ask about the nature of that person's business, their business model, even personal strengths and preferences...

And that's certainly important!

But what I've found is that  all of that is not as important as the stage of that person's business.  Here is what I mean: http://bit.ly/1Equm4Y

One of the coolest things I can say is she does a wonderful job with not only the GUEST Speaker but the entire audience ... Especially with Geeks like me, SHE keeps me on track during the show :) Not Sure Exactly how I came across Zara however I believe it was a suggestion from another on G+ and WOW talk about a cool friendship we have developed, as I look forward to one day meeting Zara in a in Real Life Hangout one day :) The LADY is #GEEK and I love how much passion she puts into every Hangout...

My daughter and I just got back home from this place of anything you ever dreamed of being on ice cream but its Yogurt.. Fantastic and Fun experience, took pictures of our creations and then ordered moms for the way home, and I think she agrees just as much as we did that this place just ROCKS. Thx for the coupon, my daughter got $5 off from a friend and figured ok, let's go play and get a sugar high from all the toppings.

This is one of the best paintball fields in the Kansas City Area.. I take my son down to play once every few months but when we go I have to say everyone who works their are extremely helpful and very educated on the sport. However I think one of the things that this paintball field excels in is SAFTEY they have some of the BEST Refs on the field, making sure everyone is having fun and doing it in a safe mannor. If you are a new player or experienced each one of their fields are unique. Two of our favorite fields are the Woodsball/Speedball style field as well the Castle is my favorite of them all, as they have developed many cool games to play with that field. They have portable bathrooms and are well kept up as well they have snacks but we like bringing the cooler and as we sit back and relax we cook up some Hot Dogs and such.. The other cool thing these guys do are Birthday Party Events and they really cater to the party as you have your own ref/guide for the day.. If you have not played at this field and you are in the Kansas City or Lawrence Area you need to stop by and play.
