I added the AmazonSmile 1Button so I can support my favorite charity ALS Therapy Development Institute http://alstdi.net with every purchase. Makes me smile and it's so easy.
This is an official AmazonSmile extension for Chrome

Instagram analytics tools are becoming more popular, allowing brands to understand the platform before potentially paying for ads down the road.

Loved it! Doesn't get much better than seeing Regis with Don Valentine talking about the birth of Apple...even if it is a commercial for PacBell.

How a Personal Brand Can Help Reimagine Your Future  http://buff.ly/1spzv2e #personalbranding  

Got to spend a day last week getting to know Dorie Clark, whose done more things than I can count, not the least of which is being a spokesperson for a presidential candidate. Loved her take on the importance of a personal brand and how important it is, today more than ever.

50 Stats You Need to Know About Content Marketing

This deck is rich. I'm bookmarking it for future reference. I'm bookmarking it so I can dig into every study it mentions. I'm bookmarking it because it provides proof for these seven claims: 

 1. Content marketing is taking over the marketing industry
 2. Blogging creates more traffic and more leads
 3. Content fuels our social web
 4. Content increases engagement and brand loyalty
 5. Visual content captures consumers
 6. Content marketing generates leads
 7. Investing in content marketing is critical to building your business

Get the full scoop here:

Corporate and Personal Branding
Introduction
I love empowering people and companies with brands that stand apart in the crowd.  

I've worked with more than 150 companies and have inspired thousands of individuals to take charge of their brands with my BrandingPays step-by-step methodology. 

I renew myself by being out in nature: by the ocean, in the redwoods or just taking a breather in my back garden.  Life is good.




Bragging rights
My book, BrandingPays: The Five-Step System to Reinvent Your Personal Brand, will be published in January 2013.
