Marketing infographics have been a source of great attention for the Marketing Technology blog. So much so that I’ve set up Google Alerts for the term infographic and I review them throughout the day. Since infographics have become so popular, the content industry is being overwhelmed with bad infographics… so we’re pretty picky about what we share or don’t share to insure that we’re always providing value. Infographic Basics What is an infographic? Why use infographics? Why do infographics make great marketing tools? How to research and design an infographic? … Continue reading
I have been kicking around the idea of offering a free eCourse for a few months. The inspiration for the idea was a result of participating in the ProBlogger’s original – How to Build a Better Blog in 31 Days. ( It was a free eCourse, now it is a book) The original concept was cool: Sign up, get an email, link to a blog post, comment, join a forum, read other comments, get an assignment, share what you learn, and the cycle starts again.

Ever wonder what the differences between an iPhone and an … Continue reading
I just wanted to share my presentation that I did with Sharp Minds. We had some great local companies who were looking to learn how they could deploy blogging and social media in their efforts to promote their business. Not a lot here in the presentation – most of it was me talking, along with flipping back and forth between sites and the presentation. It is a new Powerpoint/Keynote theme that I designed, though!
I love Common Craft videos. The fact is that simplicity sells, and Common Craft has a great niche delivering videos that explain technology simply using video and audio. Google Mobile had a video on their blog today that looks very much like a Common Craft production. If it’s not a Common Craft production, Google definitely has some explaining to do! I didn’t see Google on the client list although there are other Google-specific videos out there by Common Craft. As well, I found it interesting that this video doesn’t have … Continue reading
