The Future of Business and the Prestige Market

Incredibly well-done presentation by NYU Professor, Scott Galloway, on the future of business and how to thrive in it, especially in the prestige market. There are so many great points he makes in this video that can be applied to any business. Pay particular attention to his discussion about the future and transformation of retail business. I bet you’ll have a whole new perspective from now on when you hear the word “warehouse”!

Differentiate yourself from the competition, or GO HOME! You can’t blend in and STAND OUT at the same time. And if you’re NOT the least bit CRAZY, you’ll NEVER be the least bit NOTICED.

Stand Out | Differentiate
BE DIFFERENT! BE UNIQUE! BE YOURSELF!

Fascinating interview of Katie Paine by Jason Falls with Social Media Explorer TV!  Jason asks Katie (a.k.a. “The Queen of Metrics”) to explain how to prove the ROI of a business’ Social Media investment.

Katie points out that before you can measure Social Media ROI, you have to determine what your “R” (Return) is. What sort of “return” are you looking to quantify?

She goes on to say that “ROI in Social Media is NOT defined in terms of eyeballs or in terms of numbers” because there are too many variables that don’t allow for clean metrics.

The bottom line is whether or not your Social Media efforts are reaching the right eyeballs and are you creating engagement with that audience.

This would be a great interview to watch with a potential client to help educate them on the realities of Social Media metrics and to set expectations for the client.

Are you ever completely stumped on what to share in your next Social Media post? Do you sometimes fee tapped-out on blog article ideas?


We’ve all been there.

Well fortunately, Leadership and Social Media platform expert, Michael Hyatt, just posted an extremely practical video to bail us all out. Enjoy 10 Different Types of Social Media Posts to Grow Your Following!

Trying to find the right Social Media platform for your business can be mind-boggling.

You don’t want to leave your business off of anything that might help draw traffic and conversions, but you also don’t want to waste valuable time on a Social Media platform that will produce little to no results.

So what do you do?

Shira Lazar, host of YouTube’s What’s Trending, does a very good job of explaining why you need to first determine where your particular market is on Social Media and then focus your marketing efforts on those platforms.

“You really need to know what you’re trying to sell, and where those communities are, and you need to be present within those communities bringing value and getting creative.” – Shira Lazar
