Let Go Of Fear And Become Vulnerable

How to Start a Content Marketing Strategy - Let Go of Fear and Become Vulnerable

I was listening to the Elvis Duran Show on my way home from the pool this morning, and they were talking about National Nude Day. Before hearing this, I had no idea it was actually a recognized holiday. Did you? After returning home, a quick Google search tells me we sadly missed it, which means the show I was listening to was a rerun. By the way, mark you calendars for July 14th so you can celebrate or avoid this holiday at all costs. That is your decision.

Why You Need to Align Marketing & Sales

Posted by Patrick Sitkins on Aug 10, 2015 6:10:13 PM

Lately I’ve become more and more frustrated with local companies. 

My family and I have lived in three different cities in the last three and a half years. Each time we move, we need to get to know a city and we always have basic questions. 

Where do we grocery shop? 

What are good family restaurants? 

What is there to do here? 

What are the best bike and running shops?

etc. etc. etc.

Don't Commit These LinkedIn Photo Fails

Posted by Patrick Sitkins on Jul 23, 2015 7:30:00 AM

Back by popular demand - LinkedIn Photo Fails! 

My original post 15 LinkedIn Profile Image Sins You May Be Making is still the most read post I've ever done. It was a lot of fun, but it also got people thinking hard about their presence on social media. 

The following examples are taken from actual profiles I have seen. As to not totally offend anyone, I recreated all of the image types. I hope you have as much fun reading this as I did creating it.

With marketing, there is almost never one correct answer. Most times, what works for one individual or company may not work exactly the same for another company - even in the same industry. There is certainly a try-test-adapt-try again methodology. Notice I said almost. If you are a professional, then listen up because your LinkedIn profile image may need help! There is really only one correct answer on what your profile image should be. It should be a clean, professional headshot of you. Period. This is one of the few times there is not another answer.
