Market Research with Social Media: “Beyond the Echo Chamber”

This past week, I attended Social Media Breakfast 27 in Boston; its theme was “Beyond the Echo Chamber” with an emphasis on conducting market research using social media channels. Realizing this focus, I recalled the early days of what we now call “social media” – before Twitter and Facebook – when blogging almost exclusively ruled […]

“New” Rules of Content Marketing; Not So New, and Other Thoughts

This past week, I attended Boston’s Social Media Breakfast 26: “The New Rules of Content Marketing.” Since much of what we do with Voce’s PN Connect team centers on content, I figured I would hear a lot of interesting things, and I was not disappointed. Among the potential social media bingo games (claim your prize […]

Exploring Social Media in (near) Boston

This week I attended Exploring Social Media Boston (well, Burlington, but don’t get me started about the commute. Burlington is the proud home of the Burlington Mall, shooting location for Paul Blart: Mall Cop), a day-long social media conference hosted by Jason Falls and sponsored by Awareness Inc.

A Snapshot of FutureM in Boston

This past week, I attended several events that were part of the FutureM (Future of Marketing) event in Boston. Unlike a lot of big conferences, FutureM is a confederation of smaller events, woven (largely by the local organization MITX) into a larger whole. I cherry-picked a number of events throughout the week, and here are […]

Social Media Snapshot from Boston: Sports Marketing and Social Tools Chaos

Boston is a very active social media city, so it was not unusual to have two events (at least) in one week to attend and learn about how people and companies are using social media. First up from last week, a Millennial Branding Event featuring Peter Stringer, who runs social media for the Boston Celtics. […]

Navigating SXSW From the Agency Perspective

There is an image, not entirely unearned, of the social media conference – in particular, but not limited to, the just-concluded South-by-Southwest (SXSW) Interactive – as a boondoggle for the social media marketer, a place of endless parties, meeting and greeting the same people we talk to about the same things all the time, and […]

A Trip Outside the Bubble: Lessons From SIPA’s Annual; Marketing Conference

I was honored to be invited back to speak this year at the SIPA (Specialized Information Publishers Association) Annual Marketing Conference this month in Miami. There were a few interesting things about my experience at the two-day event (aside from the Paparazzi nearly trampling me at the beach to get snaps of some celebrity I […]

An Event Apart Recap Day 2

A while ago I shared some initial thoughts after attending An Event Apart and, since registration has opened up for the 2011 conference I thought it was a good time to provide a recap of Day 2 of the 2010 event (apart). As I mentioned previously, An Event Apart featured a much-needed change in focus […]
