Disney, ESPN, Disney Channel, Walt Disney?

Disney, Walt Disney, Pixar, ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers, Rascal Flatts, Disney Studios, Bob Iger, Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, The Walt Disney World Resort, plus dozens more Disney brands.

Everyday I read or hear of several more companies that use blogs, Facebook, Flckr, LinkedIn, You Tube, Twitter and various other forms of Social Marketing.

Some call it Social Networking, or Social Media.  At the end of the day, for me, it’s entirely about marketing.

What do you know about keywords, tags, meta tags, titles, SEO, search engines, social marketing, etc?


Best wishes for your purposeful plan today.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

So, If Obama Has a Blog….

Did you know that President Obama, and The White House, have a blog?


So what does that mean?

Well, to me, it means that blogging, Facebook, etc., are more common and socially acceptable than most realize.

Then, what does that mean?

I think it means that it’s also good, even critical, for business.

What I mean by that is this:  “If I have to explain the business case for blogs and other social business networking, than you have some catching up to do“.

Seriously.  Get on the bus, or get left behind.  Or at the very least, you’ll be playing catch up.

This is simply a personal opinion.  One that’s as simple as suggesting that exercising several days a week is good for our overall personal health.  That doesn’t need any explaining either, does it?

When it comes to customer service, whether you’re fanatical like Disney, or rabid like Zappos , it sure seems like a great idea to love your customers and make them feel like rock stars.

Live from New York, It’s….

…. not Saturday Night Live!  Used to watch that show while attending College, when John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radnor, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, and others were making a name for themselves.

I digress.

I’m visiting New York, and the hotel is just a few blocks from Niagara Falls.

I walked to the Falls late yesterday.  It was a crisp 60 degrees.  Spring buds on the trees and tulips a day or two away from blooming.

The renewal of, and long awaited, springtime.

And the relentless, timeless, and enormous flow of water.

It was humbling to stand in it’s presence.

Make it a great, springtime day of renewal. Because if you don’t, who will? If not today, then when?
