If you’re an avid follower of Speak Social, you might remember a story we published a few months back about our leaders, Brad & Adam, meeting with a group of Pakistani delegates at the request of the U.S. State Department to discuss our methodologies in Social Media.

Measuring Customers with ‘Last Touch Attribution’ is like Sharing Vacation Photos of only the Airport

The biggest challenge in measuring the impact of marketing is drawing the line between advertising and sales. It’s the illusive dragon that most companies continue to chase.

A Journalist Wrote this Blog … and I have a Degree to Prove it

I recently attended a press event for the grand opening of a restaurant. There, sticking out among all the slacks, dresses, and neatly pressed shirts, was a young man, hair in disarray, wearing a black tank top and cargo pants. I was later told, much to my surprise, that this young man, who looked no…

The Grammys’ One Woman Social Media Team

Mashable posted an interesting article this morning about a woman named Lindsay Gabbler, who, by the way, is responsible for the entire Social Media presence of The Grammys. That is right … I said the ENTIRE Social Media presence. All you brand strategists and community managers should let that soak in for a second. Think…

Tracking Social Media Results Starts with Looking at ALL the Numbers

OH the age-old debate … how do we track the ROI of Social Media? I love this debate. Although “age-old” really only encompasses the last 3 years or so, it’s the most frequently debated and discussed topic in marketing today. There are many opposing viewpoints on the answer: some disbelieve the ability entirely, others point…

RIP Vine: Facebook & Instagram Announce Killer New Video Features

UPDATE:  Looks like Instagram Video will only work on Android phones with the Jellybean Operating System (4.1.2) or higher. We apologize if your phone can’t handle it … but who’s fault is that really?

A Yearly Address from Speak Social

We started Speak Social at a time when Social Media was largely undefined. You couldn’t find white papers or case studies documenting the statistical proof of how well it worked, or how much money businesses generated through this new tool. We knew a lot had changed, and that wasn’t slowing down; in fact, the pace…

What happened to “It’s None of your Business”

The recent trouble Facebook got into regarding privacy regulations has made me consider some generational attitudes that I feel will define Social Media moving forward … but I’ll get there.   Privacy has been an ongoing issue for Facebook. Since the release of the recent apps Timelines and Frictionless Sharing, users can now, with the…

Social Media Cries a River: Thank You, Klout

Klout’s new algorithm came, saw and shook the world for many Social Media professionals. Over the past few weeks, the blogosphere has been saturated with anti-Klout articles. People scoured the interweb (I love that word) for every possible story, sourcing any and all material that discredits Klout by highlighting even the smallest chink in their…

Klout Adds Facebook Fan Page Feature

  About a month ago, Klout unveiled another round of major changes to their platform. The most exciting of these changes (at least according to us) is the ability to link Facebook fan and business pages to the Klout account of our clients. It’s OK if this is news to you, this change flew completely under the radar. Klout did not post an…
