I really appreciate this, Clay. I also am a big fan of John Maxwell, except he makes me cry for some reason. When you mentioned saying "how can I" instead of "can I," a light bulb went off for me. "Can I" easily leads to "No, you can't." But, "how can I," is thought provoking. It immediately leads to problem solving. Thanks for your post!

@AmyMccTobin @jolynndeal I'm sorry, I guess I blended the two! PA is beautiful in the summer. I'm from Indiana, PA, along with the much more famous Jimmy Stewart. In Gini's defense, there is nothing quite like Chicago in the summer. :)

Thanks, Sarah. It's about time, right?! I have been threatening to break up with Facebook, but I guess I will hang on a while longer.
Hello Amanda! I'm beyond intrigued by Amandatory fun time! It's so nice to meet you. BTW I've braced myself and am ready for one of your famous WHAMs.

@SarahJayne @jolynndeal @Marissa Buckley Me too, if I could only somehow work that into a paying gig, I'd be golden!

@SarahJayne @jolynndeal Thanks for letting me know how you found us, Sarah. I'm not sure what version of our editorial calendar is on Google docs. We've since added columns and other information. Here's a link to our latest version. http://www.mymarketingcafe.com/resource-stand/use-blog-editorial-calendar/
I was just talking to @Marissa Buckley about how you found us and it sparked an idea of putting tools that business owners may need on Google docs. It's a way we hadn't thought of using for reaching our audience. Thanks so much!
@Marissa Buckley Keep us posted on the results of the change. It will be great to see this idea in action.
@Synnovatia @jolynndeal Wanted to also say you gave a great presentation today, Jackie. It's good to know the hard work you put into your blog is paying off, so much so that you now need someone to work all those leads for you!

@SarahJayne You bring up such a great point, Sarah. It's not necessarily one tactic but all of them working together. I don't spend nearly the time I should on infographics and slideshare, but have included as a focus in my own marketing plan. BTW, I am completely addicted to your blog and I'll share so others can see (http://oldgardenarts.blogspot.com/) I absolutely love to garden and love the results. And... it's a perfect place for conversation, just as you point out on your blog. So nice to see you here. :)
@Synnovatia I agree, Jackie. It hadn't occurred to me to focus on building trust through a contact form. But it was an "ah ha" moment when I read it. :) And who would have thought that a simple change such as changing the word your to my would be so effective.
@JRHalloran Yes, it might help us if you provided a "proof" of what the ad would look like. You know, for research purposes and focus group studies and all that.

Congratulations, Gini! I loved Marketing in the Round. It was so helpful to me, so I have no doubt this book will be too. I've registered and look forward to working with crazies on a more regular basis. How completely awesome!
@lprevost Laura, I loved the free boot camp you offered me as a sign up. I lacked the discipline to use it, but that was on me, and I am actually starting over with it. Maybe something to support that already great opt-in, like the 28 day "virtual coaching" in the form of the Positive Daily Messages. I'd also include a couple of before and after examples of clients who have gone through the program.

@Synnovatia I may need to change this, Jackie. Two is more the trend now. What I see is people using them at the end of tweets so as not to interfere in the flow. Sometimes when it's two words, like #businessplan, it can take a second to decipher, so I see people putting it as separate words in the tweet and then a hashtag at the end. It changes every day. I would never go over two. We all know about the automation kinks!
