Bio not provided
I know EXACTLY what I want from AD, but I can't afford you, at all, and thus I slink away to a corner and sob, BUT I do my best to keep our relationship strong, should the day come when we can. I know we need to do some of these things ourselves, in order to reach the next stage of our business evolution.

Are we talking buzzwords or are you really trying to draw attention to your haircut? Come on Jeff, be honest.

Mr. Rogers is NOT creepy. How dare you even suggest that? He was the best. The best.

I wish I ate this sarcasm omelette for breakfast, opposed to that healthy flax and whole grain cereal. This was so delicious.

@ginidietrich or your bike while riding, though I'm sure you'll say you are terribly uncoordinated and likely to fall and suffer an accident worthy of the firing of a health insurance company rep.
@ginidietrich How does introvert and PR mix? Also, instead of the gigantic, though slightly less active, Lake Michigan, get your ocean fix on at Shedd Aquarium and shoot the dolphin show. :-)
@HowieSPM instead of Instagram, I just use a real Polaroid, and then I shed tears every time I drive past the hollow shell, that once was their former HQ.
@ginidietrich You don't have to narrate a thing. Sometimes the ambient noise can tell the entire story. My original shots of the brook didn't pick up the babble, which is why I talked over it. However, let me give you a few ideas....because I love you.1. Super Simple Example #1: Photos of the ocean. Sound of waves crashing.2. Super Simple Example #2: You're at a party/networking event/etc. Photos of the people. Sound of their chatter.3. Super Simple Example #3: You're at Wrigley Field. Photos of the crowd/field/etc. Sound of the awesome ambient noise that accompanies a sold out baseball stadium.
@geoffliving Geoff, I'm a bit surprised that with the enthusiastic caps lock shout out to Instagram, it didn't conclude with, at least, 5 exclamation points, which to me says you left the window slightly cracked, so that your loyalty could potentially be stolen by another suitor. ;-)
@danieleagee Pick on the guy who advocated your death, by shovel, the other day. Nice guy you are. ;-)
@danieleagee I think you just proved my idiot point. You don't have to stand still after taking the photo. I'm giggling out loud over that one. muuauahhahahhahahahahhaa
To your point, which I agree, Picle is a work in progress, but to me, it's worth the bumps and bruises to stay along for the ride. My only challenge, is I want to shoot photos of my kids, because they say funny shite while being photographed, but don't want to share them with strangers. Most don't have that problem.
@danieleagee I know how difficult it is, for the modern homo erectus (Stop giggling you middle schooler), to click to take a photo (like all photo apps) and then hold the phone for 10 seconds so it can record sound. If you're saying that's too tough for Instagram users, then you just called every single Instagram user a partially functional idiot or a social media expert. I can't tell the difference.
Rhysorwin To a degree, but an ambassador, as it's being presented to us by Ragu, for example, is not someone who was fully dedicated to the Ragu brand and product. They all have established blogs, etc, which comes with a following. I'd be interested to know how many used Ragu beforehand, much less loved and passed recipes calling for it. This is why, true to an ambassadors definition, they're politicians. The Brand Army works for you with little to no recognition, but is motivated by interaction, access and feeling like they're part of the success story.

Howie Goldfarb Thanks Howie. The idea of the Brand Army is to be very involved in what you have to offer. How cool would it be if, for example, the customer service for an online video game, like World of Warcraft, was managed entirely by the Brand Army, with perhaps, 1 or 2 internal staff members overseeing it? Who knows more about a game than the passionate players? Or an auto dealership had a group of people that prospective buyers could connect with, in order to gain firsthand what the expected customer experience will be or Sam Adams had an army that received a monthly shipment of brew and had to participate in live G+ events to discuss and share their feelings? Getting that army into the mix is my ultimate goal.
Liz damn you. Now I have to run out and pick up some Sharper Edge Cheddar. I've been craving it since this comment. :-)
wmwebdes Thanks and you're right, we all can't be ambassadors, nor do we want to be, but all of us can belong to an army. Many of us don't even recognize it as that, nor do most corporations, but all it takes is one smart insider to recognize and nurture it.
maggielmcg Right on Maggie, but how do you think the strategic thinking, inside of influential corporations, can change in favor of the Brand Army versus chasing bloggers, etc?
Juan DCAutoGeek Barnett I hear you Juan and like you, I was a member of VWVortex when it was just 2 guys in a Chicago apartment. I've also influenced the purchase of many a VW, Audi and a ton of aftermarket accessories. However, what's missing from your comment, and something I want to see, is what 34% you disagree with.
