How many times has a social media expert told you that in order to succeed online, you have to be “everywhere?” Probably more than once or twice.

Then there are other thought leaders in the social sphere that will take a slightly different approach, telling you that being “everywhere” is foolish and that Read More
It used to be that a good marketing professional just needed to know how to work a powerpoint presentation and a whiteboard. That’s no longer the case. The new breed of successful content marketers must be comfortable with an evolving set of roles that have only recently become essential for executing marketing plans. We’ll discuss these 7 roles and what you need to do to master them.

Tell me something…
Do you struggle with publishing a weekly blog post?
How about recording new blog post ideas that pop into your mind throughout the day?
Yes on both counts for me.
I’ve heard profound book ideas that died without a word written.
I’ve watched incredible business ideas die without a single product or service created.
I kid you not, I’ve built blogs for people who let them wither away without creating a single blog post.
I just had a great conversation with a fellow reader about their blog. In 30 minutes we zeroed in on some easy changes that would immediately put her blog on the right path.
I had such a good time on the call that I asked -
“How can I help more readers with their blog?”
How do you offer a thought that defines the conversation for an entire industry?
I had a blast talking with Guy Kawasaki about the secret to success, his fascinating book – APE, and his source of inspiration.
This was the first podcast where my guest lured me off my prepared script and took me on a crazy ride to a much better topic!

This video is about – the space between: success and failure, confidence and insecurity, scarcity and abundance. Get this…the distance can be bridged with a minor shift in your mindset, no fancy tools, books, courses, or sherpa’s required. Watch and act.
Do you keep a to-do list?
Take a look at it. Count how many projects that you’ve started but haven’t finished.
Do you have projects stuck in the “not quite finished” phase?
Are you frustrated with your blog’s performance?
Then you’ve probably scoured Google looking for simple ways to get your blog back on track. I’ve been there. I started two blogs that failed and have had to revive Pushing Social many times. The good news is that the common blogging problems can be grouped into 4 areas: 1. No readers, No Subscribers, No Comments / engagement, and no sales. For each of these areas, I’ll share a prescription that will put your sick blog on the path to recovery.
It’s Fired Up Friday again, time to get excited about the business you’re building.
Success isn’t for quitters. Everyone has days that test their patience and we all encounter obstacles along the way. Some days the stress really gets to you and you start to wonder if it’s even worth all the effort. Before you throw in the towel, watch this video.
Just a short note today.
I have a confession. I’m looking for a content marketing silver bullet. I’ve found some great blog growth hacks and other marketing tactics that work extremely well in certain situations but none are guaranteed winners.
Did you fail to publish a post last week?
Are you beating yourself up because that ebook, podcast, or product didn’t get launched?
I’ve been following Denise Wakeman for a while and I’ve always found her business blogging advice very helpful. We were able to get her on the PS Podcast to discuss her online visibility strategies.
It’s Fired Up Friday again and today’s post is a message specifically for the ladies in our audience.
I find it troubling that most women seem uncomfortable asserting their expertise, experience and talent. I think it’s time for women to stop feeling guilty for being assertive. How many of the situations in this video from Pantene can you relate to? How often do you apologize when you shouldn’t?
We all hate “selling” but it’s a necessary part of building and growing a business and promoting it with a blog.
In this episode of the Pushing Social Podcast I’ll give you 3 ways to beat burnout and revitalize your creative energy.

So, how do you write a blog post?
We’ve talked about making sure you blog from your innate strength but what are the mechanics of writing or creating content for your blog?
Is blogging like riding a bike?
It’s summer break and two boys in my house are focused on a single task. My youngest son is learning how to ride his bike. The oldest boy, me, is learning patience. He’s riding. He’s wobbly but he’s getting better by the minute.
I invited Brian Clark, CEO of Copyblogger Media on the show to discuss their latest creation – Rainmaker.
The service isn’t a theme, it isn’t a plugin, it isn’t a framework. Rainmaker is actually – all of the above.
We often think that the Crazy Ones are “out there”.
They are the people on TV, in movies, in Washington D.C. or on the stage accepting a Nobel Prize.
We are looking for fun, intense, optimistic, and creatively obsessed social media mavens to join our team as Content Production Interns.
