Brian Solis on Social Media and the SME

I’ve watched this Brian Solis video a couple of times as it’s a good one for beating SME’s into submission when it comes to doing Social Media. He’s also a stat-meister. Here are some of the best case studies he cites: The Creme Brulee Cart – tweets which street corner he is on in San […]

How Digital Strategy is changing

It’s been a whirlwind visit to the Marketing Week live! event at London’s Olympia but there’s been enough time to see enough speakers to help crystallise some thoughts about how digital strategy for business is changing. I’ve been working with digital for 15 years now. I started out as a web designer and am now […]

Marketing Week live! – Digital Strategy Panel – #MWL2010

A prediction for 2010

Happy New Year! I’m slowly getting back into the headspace of my work – digital marketing. It’s actually odd to be ‘out-of-the-loop’ for 2 weeks, along with the rest of the world. Indeed there are some people out there doing strange things. For example Matt Cutts is actually signing out of digital media for a […]

World’s First Crowdsourced Car Goes Into Production

Crowdsourcing is the ultimate form of handing control back to the people. Indeed it is this type of Glasnost that some people believe will be the way business manage to continue operating in the future. Here’s a cracking example which could save the motor industry. A new independent car company is rising from the ashes […]
