Announcing The End of Business as Usual: The new book is available now!

It’s with great pleasure, and a little bit of nervousness, that I announce the official availability of my new book, The End of Business as Usual. Business, government, music, finance, publishing, everything is changing. We have a unique role in all of this as we are stakeholders in not only defining the need for change, but we are also responsible for leading transformation within our organizations. We are the architects, the mediators, and the sherpas to a new era of…

Our Digital Society in the Next 30 Years: An Interview with John Battelle

Brands are furiously creating profiles in social networks such as Facebook and Twitter in the hopes of building engaging communities with customers and giving people what the brands think they want. The main activity in this effort is to spur consumers to…

Digital Darwinism: Who’s Next?

This is the first part in a short series to introduce The End of Business as Usual… Change is inevitable, but it is rarely easy. Among the greatest difficulties associated with change is the ability to even recognize its need at a time when we can actually do something about it. Sometimes, when we finally realize that change is inevitable, the vision  or energy needed to push forward in a new direction is elusive. Or worse, when competitors recognize the…

Announcing: The End of Business as Usual

Earlier this year, I announced that I was writing another book. I left clues here and there, but I had yet to officially announce the title or the focus of the book. The truth is that I didn’t want to give readers of Engage 2 the impression that I was ready to move on. So finally, it is with great pleasure that I share with you the name and also the semi-final draft of the book’s cover. Officially introducing, “The…

Reading Between the Lines: An interview about Engage and what’s next

I recently spent some time talking to Sarah Morales of Vertical Measures to discuss the new Engage and we wound up having a fun and in-depth conversation that I felts was also worth sharing with you here. Sarah: This is the updated version of the book that championed, “Engage or Die!” What are the main events in social media that have occurred since the last version? Me: The difference between Engage 1 and Engage 2 is less about events or…

This is the time to go your own way

I was recently asked to write the foreword for Social Media Geek-to-Geek by Rick & Kathy Schmidt Jamison. I was delighted to help and as always, I requested to publish the foreword here when the book was released. Now that the book is available on Amazon, I’m excited to share the foreword with you here… When I’m asked to research and present success stories and best practices in social media, I often ask a bit more about what it is…

This guest post is by Michael Stelzner, the founder of Social Media Examiner and author of the new book Launch. Social and selling just don’t mix. Have you ever been to a wedding sponsored by Nike? Does a future where restaurant tables display infomercials sound appealing? The last thing anyone wants in a social context is a commercial.
