Nice post with ideas on how restaurants can be using Facebook to drive up the size of the checks.

+Mike Gingerich has some great content on this stuff that's coming out consistently.  If you're in the restaurant biz, it's worth subscribing to his blog over at Tabsite too -->

I heard +Brian Halligan talk about rising Google CPC's at #goinboundmktg lats week.

But Google CPC costs projected to rise a 10-15%!?!  That's just nuts, and it's going to make a ton of businesses explore other options.

How To Cause a Brand Advocate Story to Change (Part 1) >>

I've been thinking a lot about brand advocacy programs since my conversation with +Rob Fuggetta a few weeks ago. He's right in that brand advocates can be powerful marketing armies for your business.

But, behind each brand advocate is series of stories and scripts that they recall when they tell your friends about a brand that they love. Like soldiers in armies, when the command makes a bad or questionable call or someone is in the lead who the soldiers don't feel is qualified, the stories that circulate through the ranks being to change. That can dangerously make things go south.

This new two part post is a narrative that shares an experience my wife had recently, that I hope highlights the point I'm trying to make.

I'd love it if you would let me know your reaction.  Am I off base? What am I not considering?

+Jay Baer has a nice post here ... and a nice book that's on it's way for those of you who've pre-ordered.  If you haven't ... well ... get on it!  

I saw the Youtility presentation late last year at #FSMU  in Chicago. If the book goes deeper into some of the ideas Jay shard then, it's going to be well worth reading...
