Let's start with a warning ... this is the "clip show" post where I recycle a lot of old material so if that causes you extreme pain, please close this window now and come back tomorrow. For all the rest of you, it's the holidays and a quick glance around the marketing blogosphere will show that these clip show posts are in right now. With nearly 400 post on this blog already, there is lots of content to choose from ... allowing me the luxury to conveniently ignore those posts from the past year that are outdated or that I just don't like anymore. Here is a sampling of the rest:
Concepts & Ideas:
This is a collection of concepts and ideas that were introduced or discussed on this blog and then travelled virally to other blogs and were discussed elsewhere in media. A good collection of ideas, many of which I still hope to implement on a client campaign (but haven't yet).
- Virtual Hugs
- Widget Marketing
- Text Messaging Customer Service
- Tagging with Domain Names
- Social Media Optimization
- Automated Blog Translation
- Human Search Filters
Rules & Guides:
These are a group of "Guy Kawasaki style" posts written in list format as guides to various topics from SMO to viral marketing. It's a format I have always liked and you will probably see many more posts in this format going into 2007.
- Avoiding the Dark Side of Social Media
- 5 Rules of Social Media Optimization
- Signs Your Viral Marketing May Flop
- 7 Tips on Pitching Bloggers
- Golden Rules of Blog Etiquette
Presentations & Published Work:
Links to presentations given at industry events as well as guest contributions to other blogs. There is some good powerpoint link bait in here, useful for those who are interested in any of these topics but couldn't make it to the events referenced.
