My friend, the uber-smart +Shelly Kramer owner of V3 Kansas City Integrated Marketing and Social Media Agency, recently wrote about the importance of mobile marketing strategies to companies. She opined:

"If you haven’t given your mobile marketing strategy much thought, now’s the time. A new report from Forrester indicates that one billion people will own smartphones by 2016—surely reason enough to set your sights on mobile and integrate mobile marketing strategies into your overall marketing strategy."

Blog post: Building your online personal brand – for better or for worse.


You’ve heard the horror stories: a job applicant gets turned down because his potential employer discovered his objectionable tweets, or saw pictures of his keg party on Facebook. There is a lot of advice out there about keeping your online activity from hurting your career. But there’s a flip side.

When handled correctly, social media can help you professionally. You can use it to enhance your personal brand, establish yourself as an expert in a field, or demonstrate fluency with all things digital.

Starting a Career in Social Media: Getting the Interview: An online body of work will help you get the interview if you have to have an online portfolio that people can easily find when they Google you. Note that I said “when they Google you” and not “if they Google you.” It is almost certain that your potential employer will look you up and find your LinkedIn profile, your Facebook personal page, your blog and other online tools that you have used to establish your online voice, like a Twitter account or Google+ page. In short, what you need to do it to make it easy for employers to find you.

Wow. Here's an interesting take on the wide gap between how employers and employees view their relationship: "Our businesses can’t attract or hire the right people; and the ones they have, they can’t keep.” To make matters worse, there are sizeable gaps in what employees think is important to keep them and what the companies think they should be doing. In other words, the companies are focusing on the wrong things to keep their most highly prized employees." http://www.careerrocketeer.com/2011/12/survey-shows-serious-gaps-between-employers-and-employees.html?utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed
