Hey, Mr & Ms. Customer; I AM OVER HERE!

More Customers For Your Company One of the most pressing concerns for most local companies today is how to get more customers.

Its called a “network” for a reason

Here is a story. When people ask me about Twitter and its value, I like to tell a story of how I landed my very first freelance writing job in 2009.

Networking is tough business. Attending events, making connections, and helping people out as much as you can takes a lot of time. Sometimes you might be tempted to wonder if its worth the effort. You might start to think about what you can get out of it. Don’t. Seriously. Don't. A hard truth about networking is that it works best for you [...]

Tag You’re It!

Tag You’re It!

Tag Backs Welcomed! I wanted to take my first opportunity to post on "The Central Ohio Network" to talk to you a little bit about tagging and metadata. For many of you I'm sure this will be a review but for others, this can be an opportunity to learn about an entire new world of data sorting and organization. I am a firm believer in David [...]

Will the News Business Turn Around?

Will the News Business Turn Around?

Communication professionals are an interesting lot to be sure. It is a profession made up mostly of English or journalism majors who, at one time, aspired to solve the world’s problems by shining a light like Woodward and Bernstein.  Communications types also have competitive Type-A personalities (to put it delicately).
