Austin's +Suite 709 is setting iTunes records for indie bands, based solely on word-of-mouth. One of the singles from this album has been featured on an international ad for Google+ ... check them out, please. They've got a smooth, harmonious R&B/Soul sound that crosses into the pop audience. Very refreshing. (Follow the band and +Dietrich Schmidt and +Jirod Greene as they launch their first national tour.)
 
+Suite 709 Breaks Top 20 on iTunes Charts!

Dear G+ Friends,

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support you guys have displayed in the release of our brand new album “Night & Day.” In the last 24 hours, because of you and your sharing, recommending, downloading, and reviewing, Suite 709’s “Night & Day” shot up to #16 in the nation on the iTunes R&B/Soul Charts!!! We are the only independent band up there by a long shot, and we don’t have a high dollar promo team pushing this album; just have amazing and passionate supporters like you spreading the album like wildfire!

We don’t like to send too many notifications, but we wanted to share this news with you guys, say "THANK YOU!!!," and ask for the next day or 2 to keep pushing, sharing, and spreading the word to all of your friends that like music! :)

iTunes Link for sharing: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/night-day/id540739398

Also, word on the street is that the iTunes team looks at reviews to determine whether the album is “Hot” or not, so if you have already downloaded, please take a few seconds to write a quick review on iTunes!

This is a true grassroots movement fueled by every single one of your shares, retweets, likes, and recommendations! We hope it’s as exciting for you as it is for us! We love you guys and are so grateful for every single one of you! 

Cheers,

+Jirod Greene +Dietrich Schmidt +David Butler +Zachary Boston +Drew Walters of +Suite 709

101-year-old woman still drives her 81-year-old car, a 1930 Packard 740 Straight 8. She is quite a character, and I would love to have that Packard. (I used to be in the collector car business.)

Somebody opened the G+ floodgates! Thought I would finally go through my "Added you on Google+" notifications in the 3 weeks since I had surgery. Wow! Almost 1,000 new people? How did that happen?

No way I could make it through that many people. So if you circled me recently and I have not reciprocated, leave a comment below and introduce yourself. Thanks!

Making plans to close out my Bank of America accounts and switch back to a credit union. I'd rather drive the extra miles than continue to support BoA's bad practices.

Do you need Influencers or Fans?
Mack Collier originally shared:
 
I think one of the facets of the 'influencer vs advocates' debate that is overlooked is how passionate advocates can be for their favorite brands. Is it better to appeal to an influencer with 50,000 followers that has little interest in your brand, or an advocate that has 1,000 followers, but who actually loves you?

Story
Introduction

Connie Reece is a writer, communicator and consultant who helps companies stay current with business trends regarding social media and social networks. Also a popular conference speaker, Connie has presented at national and regional events, including: Association for Women in Communication, Association for Women in Technology, BlogHer Business (New York), BlogHer (Second Life), Entergy Corporate Communications, Executive Women in Texas Government, IABC San Antonio, Interactive Austin, Marketing Profs Digital Mixer (Phoenix), Metropolitan Breakfast Club, PRSA Digital Impact (New York), Ragan Communications, and Women Who Tech.

In 2007 Connie created the Frozen Pea Fund, the first grassroots fundraising effort started solely on Twitter — long before Oprah or Ashton Kutcher brought the microblogging service to mainstream attention. The groundswell of community support for the unusual breast cancer campaign quickly caught the attention of online media outlets like TechCrunch, then spread to the BBC, and ultimately resulted in a feature story in the Washington Post. Within eight weeks the fund raised over $40,000. Connie’s work was also featured in best-selling author Shel Israel’s Twitterville: How Businesses Can Thrive in the New Global Neighborhoods (Portfolio Hardcover, 2009).

In 2009 Connie was a winner of the inaugural Texas Social Media Awards and was profiled by AustinWoman magazine as one of the top five women in social media in Austin.

She is a co-founding member (2006) of the international Social Media Club, founder of the Austin chapter, and has served on the advisory board. As of July 2011 the Club has 318 chapters across 49 countries.
