Great post about Tracky! I am going to finally be on a demo tomorrow with Jennifer to see what it is all about.
This is me thinking of ways I can deploy at work, and on Social Media Club of SLC.

@ladysportsman @arikhanson I never had other agency experience before I landed here. But I did own my own companies/agencies previously. So, I did have that experience.
I'll have to get on that post. =)

@arikhanson I just may take you up on that. If I do, I will let you know. =)
Great post @arikhanson
I have always been on the solo side, and I agree with many of your points you have mentioned. Been there, done that. But recently I have been with an agency, and I continually ask myself is this the life for me. I work just as many hours as if it was my business. Care about the work as if it was my business. Have not had a real vacation in 3 years. So, maybe it is just me, and I am doing the agency lifestyle wrong?
Would be interesting to see a post on 5 reasons agency life is not all it is cracked up to be!
Anyway, enjoyed the post, and I still find myself asking that question. I miss working in the PJ's.
Jay, Eric and Richard,
I found the Stat of the Week interesting. Seeing how edgerank is making it even harder for your page info to be seen, and 50% of traffic to a website coming from FB is quite astounding.
How are these pages staying so engaged? Are they buying a lot of sponsored posts... or is it straight up engagement that kicks ass?
Also, would be interesting to know what the stats are to these sites. Are they not ranked in the SERPs, only getting 200 visits as it is, and 100 come fromm Facebook?
Lastly, great to hear from the man, the myth, the legend... Richard Binhammer.
Anyway, great episode as always. Gotta admit, kind of miss the old intros and outros.
Have a great one!

Love this post DJ and Chris, and it makes 100% sense!
Why would people take the time to sign up for something (opt-in) if they can just get the information for free (not giving you an email address). Make the email a special event that that they can only get by signing up.
Great post, and thanks for the idea!

Love this post Jay... I have had it open in a tab for a couple of days so I would make sure to get to it and comment.
I do not think you are crazy at all... insourcing has got to be where this "social media" whatever goes. No one knows the business or clients as well as internal teams. No one can react as fast as internal teams.
Hold up, did I just say that. I was kidding. As a one man team, I can barley keep up with remembering to breathe, let alone stay on top of every network, post and comment. So, I think it is crucial to have a roadmap for what you discuss here, but as you say, it is a incubator test and refine project. Getting buy-in from "insourcers" and management. And yes, it is at least a 2-3 year implementation... and that is for companies that "get it" now!
For me, it will be interesting to see where and what Social Media looks like in 2-3 years... let alone what teams or automation looks like.
Keep on keeping on man!

Great post... I have been looking for a tool like this for a while.
Quick questions for you... what video recording programs are you using to get screen shots, zoom in, and have your face in the corner? You using mac or PC?
Thanks in advance for the answer.
WOW... big move.
I laughed at your #1 as we both were checking our emails while prepping for (and I think while on) the webinar we recorded here at SEO.com.
Anyway, while I applaud you, I do not think i could join you.
The fact is, I am addicted. I live my work, and at some points throughout the day I am just not in front of a computer. So, email on the phone is imperative for me. Also, I have way too many email accounts (a problem in itself), but the phone allows me for quick scanning and deleting garbage, so when I do get to my PC, the old inbox is cleaner.
However, since the first step to any addiction is to admit you are addicted, maybe I will reconsider and try this at some point for a while and see if I survive, and maybe gain some sanity back.
I get your point about the phone, and clients can call you whenever. BUT sometimes a call can last much longer than a quick email, and a quick response. For me, calls can sometimes be a much bigger waste of time. Obviously depends on what the conversation is about.
Thought provoking post DJ... enjoyed the read!
