Bill and Ammon (+Bill Slawski  and +Ammon Johns   ) reprise their role as the "Wyld Stallyns" of SEO, with bodacious babe +Kristin Drysdale helping wrangle comments, and stop them chasing squirrels.  (okay, a more realistic goal: prevent them chasing too many squirrels).  +Terry Van Horne joins us again to release more squirrels when Kristin isn't looking.

(No squirrels are harmed in the making of this program)


About Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout
This is not a polished, planned and scripted event.  This is a casual hangout with old friends and new, shared with all.  Somewhere around the halfway point, we'll post the link for anyone who wishes to come and join us (space permitting) allowing us to meet even more old and new friends.

The idea of pre-planning, a set topic, or even simply knowing who will be on the show this week?  All totally bogus.

Free Air-Guitars to all attendees (exact model and colour may vary with imagination)

Our general style is to issue uninvited invitations, naming folks we think might like a chat, without asking first if they are available (or willing). Of course, these are completely uninvited and unexpected invitations to those named, so any or all of them may be unavailable.  That's just another part of the chaos.

Of course, another notable part of our style for this show is a complete disregard for planning or preparation, so we haven't sent out any invitations in advance this week.  We'll see who jumps in to join us.

As ever, we'll open up the invitations to all for any empty seats once the hangout has begun.  Feel free to jump in and not only join the conversation, but help steer it.

We have no idea yet who will actually turn up, and that's how we like it.  
Excellent!

Some superb insights in this research, especially since they specifically look at the divide between the consumer view, and the business view, and where they align (or diverge), along with by how much.

One final contribution to +Kristin Drysdale's week-long #SexyRock  challenge, and this time I'm going totally outside the box with an obscure one.

Sly Fox - "Let's Go All The Way" 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQiGqGMT8i4 

There are a surprising number of versions of this song, with artists as diverse as Insane Clown Posse and Robbie Williams.  However, I think Sly Fox's version is one of the most rocking and the sexiest sounding. YMMV.

With the looser definition of Rock genres allowed now, my #SexyRock  choices can include the wonderful "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel  (and if you never realized how outright filthy the lyrics were to this song, I guess you thought it was an ode to his tool shed).

On this day, of all days, we need to remember the deep, deep influence of BB King to all #SexyRock  fans.

So many great songs to share in the #SexyRock  challenge, and so little time... 

The next act has several possible tracks to share, but I'm going with "Get It On", not because it's the sexiest, but because +Kristin Drysdale told us in comments the other day that she's a dirty girl.

She's dirty, sweet ...

Tomorrow is going to be one of those days ...


... the awesome days, that is.

Tuesday means it's time for another +Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout

Our guests last week had so much fun that it is believed several may return again this week, so to make us look like we have some measure of planning about this, our invitations this week go to +Tony Dimmock +Darren Moloney and +Karlton Kemerait. Additionally +Bob Strassel Jr. said he'd join us this week too.  A bonus invitation goes to +Paula Allen because (a) she's fun and (b) we can.

As ever, we'll open up the invitations to all for any empty seats once the hangout has begun.  Feel free to jump in and not only join the conversation, but help steer it.

I'm very much looking forward to this.

Vin ( +Vincent Messina ) and I have often talked at length about some of the common foundational errors that people make in their marketing.  A while back we thought it would be cool to try to break it down for people, going deep into the core of what Marketing really is, the differences between strategies and tactics, and a lot more.

#marketing   #marketingstrategy   #all  
 
Before you decide on tactics, you must first understand...

What marketing is, and how marketing strategy is designed.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Curious Marketer With Vin. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

My PC is a gaming rig - mid-range for hardcore gamers, but still a monster graphics machine compared to most home or office equipment.  I take care over lighting to give my camera an easy time, and I use a ethernet connection to the router so bandwidth isn't so much of an issue.  Other than that, the gods simply smiled on me. :)

Darned if I know if its #SexyRock  (though there is no arguing it's rock, and humour is sexy, right?) but I will take any excuse going to rock out to Robbie Williams' "Let Me Entertain You"

Sh**!!! 
I forgot Robbie Williams! :(
"Millennium", "The 80s" and "Strong" are my favorites.....but I guess only one of them is a rock song. ;)

+Kristin Drysdale took away the genre restriction on #SexyRock  which can surely only mean that the winner now is simply whoever first shares "Sexual Healing" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjlSiASsUIs

Here's a questionable one that I left out of my #SexyRock  submissions because, well, is it Rock?

Personally I think this song is from that transitional phase between 'Rock and Roll' and plain 'Rock', so that makes it what?  Neo-Rock? Rocking Roll?

But one thing in no doubt at all is that the song is awesome, and almost guaranteed to get a sing along from anyone of any age.

The Troggs, "Wild Thing"

Story
Tagline
Marketer, SEO, and Pioneer
Introduction
The common view I get from what others say about me is that I'm a long-timer of Internet marketing, well respected, and described as a mentor, expert, and guru, especially in relation to SEO and search marketing.
(See for what others say at http://www.ammonjohns.com/testimonials.html and http://uk.linkedin.com/in/ammonj )

Sometimes I feel I could describe all that to myself in one word: Old :o)

I've been commercially involved with the web since 1995 when I started building websites, first for myself and later for pay.  Through 1996 and '97 I was spending more and more time on working out how to get traffic and custom to sites. 

Following demand (what people were actually hiring me to do rather than what I advertised I did) I shut down my web design business in 1997 and became a full-time specialist in web promotion.

By 1998 I'd started to attract something of a following for my advice, help and general observations in one of the big forums of the day - MarketPositionTalk - which was run by Web Position Gold.

Later, I moved over to a new forum my old friend +Kim Krause Berg was starting at www.cre8asiteforums.com and there met a lot of new friends and seemed to gain even more of a following.

Across the years since then, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of clients, and to exchange views and ideas with hundreds of other SEOs, webmasters, and others.  I've had the honour of helping small businesses to be successful, and of helping successful businesses to become giants.

My approach is inherently practical yet with a high degree of creativity.  I love when a client can show me a problem and I can get to work on coming up with solutions that can blow your mind with the creative thinking, yet at the same time are so completely practical they seem obvious in hindsight.

Of course, I'm not just about my work.  I'm fascinated by psychology, passionate about many arts, and can rarely resist the opportunity to share a good pun ... or a bad one. 

In addition to this personal profile, you can also find me interacting through my business profile https://plus.google.com/+Ammonjohns/

I am also involved with Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout (an extremely casual but fun weekly Hangout on Air with no specific topic) and with The Codebreakers (examining memetic triggers and memetic effects in relation to marketing, media, and events)
