I had the opportunity to met Donna Fenn (author of Upstarts! and writer for Inc Magazine) at the Inc 500 Conference in Washington DC this year. She went out of her way before the conference and sent me a coupon code for a reduced price entrance to the conference after I responded to one of her information requests on HARO (Help a Reporter Out).
Check out a couple snippets from my presentation on Social Media for the Hardin County Young Professionals meet-up. Thanks to Matt Brown (www.mattmbrown.com) for the video footage!
Tonight I am working on gathering some documents for our most recent case study client Capitol Aluminum and Glass (http://www.capitol-windows.com). We are in the process of developing them a new website that is much more functional and user-friendly. Bouncehost will be putting together an analysis based on marketability, user-friendliness, design elements, search engine ranking, traffic, and web leads generated for Capitol.
Just as a precursor, this is something that has been on my mind for quite some time. At almost every networking event I visit and every presentation I do, this topic is mentioned. Everyone understands the position the economy is in right now and things just aren't looking real good, right? Right. But does that mean we should be worried, blame it on the government, and/or continue to bitch? Nope.
My employee Matt Nye and I just returned from a very successful business trip to Columbus. Our two day stay was to meet with some clients and partners, as well as to go to some great networking events.
This afternoon I happened to take a glance at my dual-monitor display and noticed something rather interesting. Covering up the two half-naked Maxim supermodels that stretch across my screens lies a plethora of communication tools. I am sure that I'm not the first to write a blog post about this, but I figured this would be a great first post on my personal blogging site.
So, what do I have open?
