Are You Going to Social Media Marketing World? SMMW15

I’m going to Social Media Marketing World in San Diego next Tuesday through Thursday. I speak there Wednesday at 3:15pm. Beyond that, most of my time is my own (I’ve got two other formal obligations and a few friend obligations). I thought...Show More Summary

How a $200 Chromebook Earned my Company $28,000 in Ten Days

This is the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C670. It’s about the size of a Macbook Air, kinda. It runs the Google Chrome OS, which means it’s pretty much like a browser-only deal. All the apps you use are web-based. And this device helped me make $28,000 in ten days. Show More Summary

What Writing A Great Sales Letter Taught Me About Everything

I can count on one hand the number of times that something I’ve tried to sell has been well-received by the people I serve. You know how some kids are a late bloomer? That’s me with most of the things I sell. People buy them years later sometimes. Show More Summary

GigaOm Reportedly Shutting Down

Unless it’s a prank or a hacked account, writer Mathew Ingram reports that GigaOm, a popular blog launched in 2006, is shutting down, evidently having run out of money and/or the will to keep on pushing. Again, it’s early, so maybe this is a hacked account. If so, I’ll gladly (and with a sigh of […] The post GigaOm Reportedly Shutting Down appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

How Content Marketing Can Power Your Business

I had a super great time talking to Laura at Laura from Clarity about content marketing and what it might be able to do for companies looking to reach people and do something a bit more meaningful. They don’t usually share these conversations with the outside world. Show More Summary

How Do You Know When It’s Time to Hire Someone Else?

I was working on the audiobook (long overdue) for my book, The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth and I came to a part of a chapter that might be useful to you. Are you thinking of hiring someone else? Are you a solo business and wondering...Show More Summary

Are You Getting The Most Out of Your Conferences?

I had a wonderful time at Michael Port’s Heroic Public Speaking event. There was a lot of value offered for those who attended. As a speaker, I loved sharing what I knew with the folks who were there. But I also operated as an attendee,...Show More Summary

You Will Never See Us Coming

I was talking with the ever smart Jeff Brown who does the Read to Lead Podcast (one of my favorites), and we were talking about how podcasting is just booming. Jeff runs a Podcaster Academy. I co-founded PodCamp, etc. It’s a big topic these days. Jeff said that once at his former job in radio, […] The post You Will Never See Us Coming appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Remember When I Said I Quit Facebook?

A few years back, I quit Facebook. I tried deleting my old profile, but in Facebook, that’s pretty much an act of congress, so I just abandoned it. A year ago-ish, I snuck back on, but decided not to do much in the way of “business” via my Facebook. Along the way, I discovered what […] The post Remember When I Said I Quit Facebook? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Why I Won’t Stop Blogging

I started blogging in 1998, back when they called it journaling. My first site wasn’t really blogging software. It didn’t exist yet. A bunch of my sites have been lost to software companies folding. Then eventually, I landed on blogger.com,...Show More Summary

Hanging out on MSNBC Your Business

I was on MSNBC’s Your Business with JJ Ramberg, with my co-panelist Larry Broughton. We discussed underpants, second locations, and virtual assistants. If any of that is your thing or if you just want to see me chatting in a tie, here you are: Continue Reading The post Hanging out on MSNBC Your Business appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

I’m not a social media expert

I’m a business advisor and educator. My job in one way or another over the last several years has been to help businesses figure out how to market and sell better using digital tools. That makes my job basically business advisor and consultant. Show More Summary

I Like Facebook More Than Twitter These Days and Why That Doesn’t Matter

Lately, I’m finding lots of interaction and fun on Facebook. I once wrote a post about how I was leaving Facebook for Google+ because whoa, that’s the future. Until Google decided it wasn’t. And I’m reasonably well known for loving Twitter and being an early adopter of it. Show More Summary

What is Content Marketing?

Content marketing is the art of using content of any kind (blogs, podcasts, newsletters, and much more) to reach prospects and customers and influencers, and warm them up for the potential of a purchase. You can have an offline business and use content marketing. Show More Summary

What a Long Time Friendship and Partnership Looks Like

I started stalking Brian Clark of Copyblogger back in 2006. Hard to imagine that I’d already been blogging for eight years when he showed up, but I knew from the start that Brian was smarter at a lot of things than I was, and that he’d go far. Show More Summary

Which Conference Should You Attend? Your Own

I’m working through a few ideas, but I’m a little bit stuck. And as I haven’t been invited to speak at a conference this week or next (where I get a lot of thoughts and ideas), I decided to put on a conference in my living room. The content doesn’t quite matter, because it’s my […] The post Which Conference Should You Attend? Your Own appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Measure Your Wealth in Options

I was lamenting the fact that business has been slow over the last handful of weeks (end of the year and first of the year aren’t exactly the roaring seasons for keynote speakers and professional development experts), but a little change of perspective really turned me around. Show More Summary

What USA Today Knew Back in the 80s but You’re Finally Coming to Understand

I recently picked up the Amazon Fire TV Stick so I could stream movies from Amazon Prime on my TV for the kids and stuff. I figured it’d be a little more “family” feeling than watching off my 11 inch laptop screen. I suddenly learned...Show More Summary

Want a business podcast to listen to this year? Get mine! The Owner’s Mind. You can listen to it on iTunes or Stitcher or via this website or you can dump the RSS feed in whatever player you want. Continue Reading The post Business Podcast for You? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

My 3 Words for 2015

Since 2006, I’ve been inviting people to shift how they approach their year and how they frame their goals and intentions. I created the “My 3 Words” exercise because most resolutions aren’t especially helpful. We decide something vague...Show More Summary
