Our Results

“I have worked with Jeannette now in various settings. I first encountered her expertise for the first Twestival, where she helped run the event to raise money for the organization I worked with, charity: water. Jeannette did a phenomenal job with the social media strategy team for the event, and taught our team at charity: water how to use social media. Her tutelage has been instrumental in how I've grown as a professional.<p> Fast forward to 2012, Jeannette joined our team at Social Media Week to help us produce and manage operations at one of our key hubs. Every encounter working with Jeannette has been an absolute pleasure and I continue to learn from her at every turn.”

Draw With Any Color Around You

Draw with the color of an apple

Have you ever seen something in real life that is a gorgeous color, and you want to match it perfectly on the computer? A new pen, which is still just a concept, lets you scan colors from anything around you, and then you can instantly use that color for drawing. We’ve seen tools before that let you pick colors up in a browser and then find their HEX code like Eye Dropper for Chrome (my personal favorite). But what if you could scan the color of an apple and then immediately draw or write in the color of that apple, . . . → Read More: Draw With Any Color Around You

List of Social Media Channels 2012

Let’s say you have a client or you are a small business who’s not really thought much about their social media presence at this point in the game.

There are a lot of tools out there that can help you analyze either your Twitter account or a client’s Twitter account. One of the most challenging things to know about a client’s Followers on Twitter, particularly if they’re a new client, is who those Followers are, how influential they are, and what those Followers are interested in. And, of course, all of those tools that are out there come at varying costs and some of them deliver better information than others.

EvernoteHello

Do you do a lot of networking or a lot of going out and then a lot of forgetting where you know someone from? Or maybe you forget to follow up with them? I used to follow a system where I would quickly scribble notes about someone onto the back of their business card when I met them, but then I’d have all these unwieldy business cards when I got back to my house. I’d lose them, they’d get miscategorized, they’d get wet and then smudged … the system was okay, but it wasn’t great. I’d also tried a few . . . → Read More: Tuesday Tool Tips: Evernote Hello for Networking

Filtering The Noise: Say No to Information Overload

All of the information and what you want to see

Having the right tools to help you sift through all of the information that comes at you each day is the most important thing you can do for yourself or for a client. When it comes to figuring out what kind of information is relevant within a short period of time, if you’ve spent time organizing and pre-filtering that information, you’ll have a much easier time of finding articles and information that you’re actually interested in.

Tuesday Tool Tips: Simply Measured for Social Media Reporting

simplymeasured

We’ve tested many social media reporting and analytics tools over the years, and the best one for the money that we’ve seen recently is Simply Measured.

One of the most annoying decisions you have to make when you run an agency is which reporting tool are you going to drop serious dough on each month to help you wrap your arms around ALL of that data that’s coming in. Sure, you have your enterprise tools like Buddy Media (now SalesForce Marketing Cloud), and Radian6 (oh wait … now ALSO SalesForce Marketing Cloud), or Vitrue (er … Oracle Vitrue?), and ContextOptional . . . → Read More: Tuesday Tool Tips: Simply Measured for Social Media Reporting

Many of you reading this post may know me, Jeannette Arrowood, as someone who loves social media. Lives and breathes it. And I’ve struggled with whether or not to begin a blog on the subject. I’ve got plenty of opinions and ideas about social media and about how to do it right for a brand, but I’ve not always had the patience to explain it in blog format.
