@AnneReuss @ClayMorgan @ginidietrich Well said Anne. At the end of the day, man cannot live by social (or blogging) alone.

I hope someone starts a Twitter handle @shallowfigurehead for @ginidietrich .
Happy Valentine's Day folks! Be good to your loved ones!
@ginidietrich this only confirms for me one of my goals for 2014. Last year, I had a situation where over communication would have (and should have) put to rest any uncertainty. Unfortunately, things got a little confused, feelings got hurt, and relationships strained. I know now that over communicating is better than no communicating at all. This includes putting to rest any rumors that may creep up so people aren't guessing when they actually have no idea. Lesson learned.

not much to disagree with this. Everyone needs to take ownership but to your point someone needs to coordinate it all.

I love the fact that you have all of these MSU grads and LIONS fans guest blogging on Spin Sucks.

@ginidietrich NO! I really do like your tips! But since you mentioned it, if my comments help with that too, why not??? ;)
Great tips Gini! All great reminders of how to build yourself or your brand. As I've done this for some of the brand social accounts I manage, it truly is about finding where your customers are and building the audience on that social tool.
Thanks as always! This is a great one to share!
What's funny is that although your online habits have not changed, your strategy hasn't. I've always thought of social as the initial step in meeting someone with the ultimate goal to meet in person. This not only helps you develop relationships you've made online but has helped you grow the business like you mentioned.
I think about how you and I met. It want until we met in person that I think our friendship truly developed. Great post as always Gini.

I love how you have transformed the company with this. It is amazing that there still exists the need for face time vs. measuring success based on performance at some larger companies.
More importantly, I appreciate how you tested it for a year and then revisited it again. That is the crucial step that often gets lost.

PR, Communications, Digital Marketing Agency, whatever...as long as a premium is put into it, it will work for you. I just don't understand why some are resistant to it. This piece of marketing is so measurable and your can create some very valuable insights and strategy based on data rather than guessing.
As someone so eloquently put it at TEDx Detroit last week, "we are in an era of selling customer experiences instead of customer services."

@ginidietrich This is a fantastic tribute to a good friend. I know too well the effects cancer can have on a family and I'll be saying a prayer for the Hemphills. Although Gerald is gone, the memories will always remain.

@ginidietrich One day when I get to that level, I'm hiring you for sure AND I support the virtual office!

Oh @ginidietrich how I wish you worked in the auto industry...
@ginidietrich I don't think it's naive at all. I'd love for a candidate to try it. In the political ad industry, it could be thought of as revolutionary much like when Obama truly became the first "social POTUS."
2 years ago on Spin Sucks…Even in Political Ads
Frustrates me to no end. On both sides, I wish they would focus on the good they could do if elected...what they would do to end poverty, improve the economy, etc. rather than try and discredit the opposition. Someone else telling me how bad someone or something isn't going to make me change my mind. We vote for a reason and I'd rather vote based on what candidates do or have done rather than what they say.
Unfortunately, it's still politics and I still have a hard time trusting candidates I support.
@ginidietrich I always love looking back and learning. It helps set you up for the future. Congrats on 6 years. I've learned a ton from you.

I definitely think geo location has changed since the days of just telling people where you are. I find it even more relevant when I see that friends have checked in and left tips. Now that Foursquare has updated itself, I find myself going there more and "liking" and leaving comments on people's check ins (ahem...like yours).
Great post! Small businesses should definitely try to leverage this more!

Love seeing more Detroit people contributing to Spin Sucks! Great blog @nikki_little ! Not only should companies clean up their online presence but people should too! With so many properties, it's hard to imagine people or companies can manage them all effectively.

@ginidietrich I'll cheer for the Saints against San Fran. I'm hoping it's a Saints / Packers NFC Championship. That will be a good game!

@ginidietrich@HowieG I'm cheering for the Broncos since the Lions have been eliminated. Mainly I like Tim Tebow and that's why I'm rooting for Denver, a team @ginidietrich dislikes about as much as the Packers apparently.
@ginidietrich If I was rooting against the Bears then I could understand but I didn't realize you hated the Broncos so much!
Even though you're not speaking to me until after the Super Bowl (because I was cheering for the Broncos and Tebow), I'm glad you wrote this! I still can't believe Boners BBQ did what they did! The "apology" is a bit pathetic and they are still feeling the effects of it on Twitter too. I hope they learned their lesson. By the way, here is the review from Stephanie S. on Yelp. Not sure if it warranted the response Boners BBQ gave her...
Go to East Lansing for the day!

Totally agree with you on #6 (my favorite number by the way). Mr. D does look you directly in the eye and does treat everyone equally and with respect. He's a keeper!
Thanks again for your hospitality this weekend, Gini! For the rest of you, be very jealous, @ginidietrich made a FANTASTIC dinner for @bryanwillmert and myself this weekend!

Facebook can be the gateway to your online presence. I would have loved having the debate with you. The analytics piece alone gives me pause in relying only on Facebook for my company's web presence. Completely disagree with the person in the audience.
I was just talking to someone about this today! It's so easy to get distracted on the task at hand when you are constantly being alerted with e-mails, tweets, facebook alerts, google reader, etc.
Productivity has definitely suffered with technology today...I think it does take people longer to get things done than before.
I'll accept your challenge this week and let you know how it works out on Saturday when I see you!

@ginidietrich I'm so glad you wrote this. I'm even more glad that you take time for yourself more than just on your bike during the week. Having time to unplug from the daily grind is exhausting. You know me well enough by now to realize how important making time for my family is. That is my release and relaxation even with 4 kids!
Bravo to you and I also LOVE the 4 things leaders should be doing.
Looks like @SethGodin@ginidietrich had similar thoughts...both of which I agree with...
