Pay For Performance Has Changed

Have you noticed? - Pay For Performance Has Changed

You know the business world is being turned on its head, even the old terms have a new meaning. This is not new, I’ve talked about this before, but today it’s become more real and in your face. Today it’s called pay for performance, the old name was called, “commission”. You got paid a commission for your performance, of what you sold. Today you get paid for something you do, not what you sold.

When Government Get’s It Wrong - The Internet’s Own Boy - Aaron Swartz -

Just finished watching “The Internet’s Own Boy - the story of Aaron Swartz” - not only was the government wrong, it was morally unjust, I’m still angry, I’m heart-broken and concerned about our future, a future that rely’s on government.

The Future Of Business - The NEW Attention Shift

Are you giving it away? - The Future Of Business - The NEW Attention Shift -

The modem was screeching, trying to make that handshake with another modem, if I could just connect to that modem, I could get the information I need. I had a book with pages of phone numbers for most of the BBS’s out on there in the world, they published books with theme as well. You could download drivers and programs, it was great fun, but it took forever on a 300 or 2400 Baud modem. The days…

Content Marketing Is A Scam!

Content by any other name - Content Marketing Is A Scam! -

When we don’t fully understand something, or we fear the thing, we give it a name to justify our rational towards it. There is no secret to content marketing, or content, it is just that, content…. with a message, and most of it is geared to selling something. As much as we all say, “I don’t like selling”, that’s what we do every day, in our conversations, and in our blog content, we’re either…

Teri Conrad

Who are you a fan of, who gets your attention, have you told them, if not, do it, tell them in as many ways as you can. We all look for validation, it doesn’t matter from whom really, we’ll take the praise from people we may never know, we just need to feel important, what’s sad about this need is, we’re already important!

Something we should be doing, giving away, and not waiting for…

The Shameless Plug Or Sharing

Some Thoughts On - The Shameless Plug -

We really do like to promote ourselves, oh sure we say we don’t like to talk about ourselves, or pump what we do and who we might be in the pecking order. We do want people to know what we do and how well we’ve done it, we merely disguise it as a shameless plug, well we jest that at it. If you ask a person what they do, they’ll most likely tell you their job title, not what they actually do, we…

Is The Inbox No Longer Sacred?

Is The Inbox No Longer Sacred?

Recently I wrote about privacy & security, I find it interesting that email is still considered open season. I can stop you from posting on my wall, and very little else. Consider how much time one can use to filter or manage the ongoing spam, email your friends think you should read, and then there’s the deluge of offers from Internet Marketers.

One not talked about often, is emails from those…
