Social Media marketing is a very tricky business, and often times I see beginner companies/individuals claim to be ‘professionals’ but in fact they’re relatively new to the game. Being new isn’t bad, but when incorrect information is suggested to clients and this information ultimately affects the livelihood of the client’s business, that’s when I have an issue. It bugs me like a thorn in the behind (not that I’ve had one, I just like the saying).
Yesterday I had a blast at Ryan Sheckler’s ‘Skate for a Cause’ charity event, which was created to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Stepping up to the plate (or shall I say rail) to make a difference for mankind is quite commendable and I thank you.

In this day and age — a point in time where everything is shifting to the internet — an increased number of businesses are dropping conventional marketing mediums in favor of Social Media marketing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Bimmerfest 2010 at the Rose Bowl was a blast! I saw many of the same faces I have been seeing for 7+ years and was glad to see a bunch of old friends. That along with all of the cool cars truly made my day.
