An excellent way to see if your organization is on the right track with data driven decision making.

I'm loving the news coming out of Ethiopia showing just how adaptable and downright smart kids can be with technology.  Absolutely life changing and empowering for them and their families I am sure.

Couldn't have said it better myself.  Seems we are entering an epoch where there are only two types of workers: The Entrepreneur and Everyone Else.  If this article grabs your attention, the book 'Linchpin' by +Seth Godin is an excellent guide to the new economy.

This fun little list speaks to something a fundamental shift that is profoundly important.  This is the biggest cultural shift in ... well ever, I think.

The future belongs to those who create the art, and know how to market it.  Pro tip: Do the marketing first.
Headlines create reality, people just live in it. The world can’t get enough cheese. Stories sell a lot of wine. Traditional advertising is over. 10,000 short scripts need writing. Presentation slides have gone mainstream. Hollywood is desperately seeking something. The death of traditional real estate marketing. Bags need extensive world travel. Politicians need re-electing. Words drive the commercial, artistic, and personal web. We all need to ...

Good point: If you're message isn't spreading it might because it's for too many people.

If +Christine Cobb wrote it, you know it's good!  Check out her new book on locking down your digital content.  #yyc

Alright, so the article is a little salesy (but still worth the read), but absolutely love this line from Shoe: "Stop delivering intrusive emails to your prospects and give them value. Educate them on the space and your company. Communicate to them everything that you would have if they came up to your booth at a trade show."

Reminds me of something i have taped above my desk that I learned from New Home Sales guru Jeff Shore:
"Advertisers understand a very important principle: the product isn't about the product - it's about how the product or service improves the user's life."

Another killer post by my man Shoe.  Great read, find out the surprisingly ironic way a small mom & pop shop beat out a national brand competitor.

Story
Introduction

My focus is on Search Engine Marketing (SEM) in Calgary. I specialize in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as well as Pay-Per-Click (PPC) programs like Google Adwords, display networks, remarketing, and the systems, analytics, and conversion strategies that go with them.

I've been studying and working in sales & marketing since 2006 and I am passionate about identifying and achieving objectives while leveraging technology to make things slick and simple.

I also love helping people and organizations to manage disruptive technology and complexity by designing flexible systems that can adapt to today's quick-changing environment.

I blog on social media and at RobertCollins.ca

The Hang and Level made decorating my new house easy. With a friend's I could hang a level picture in less than a minute exactly where I wanted it.

I have several hosting accounts with Otherdata. Their technology works very well and is very affordable compared to other providers I have tried. The customer service is also stellar, I can always get someone on the phone in a timely manner and I can't think of one issue that wasn't resolved quickly and professionally.

Had a *fantastic* experience with Mini Crowfoot when I bought a used Jeep Patriot from them. The entire experience was easy and stress free. I dealt with Bobby in Sales for the most part, but everyone I spoke with was great.
