Very nice @ginidietrich of the reminder. The crazy thing is that most of this is common sense, or what used to be common sense. The new protocol (slang, abbr.) creates a breakdown in communication due to the disconnect between old and new style.

@ginidietrich Exactly, why wouldn't they? Visuals, along with an interesting story goes a long way.

Storytelling! That's where we make an impact, and it doesn't matter if it's sales, criminal attorneys, script writing, or selling content on the Net.
Very nice @ginidietrich , it's the storytelling that makes us connect with others. I believe it's vital for institutions / businesses to convey their message in this manner so as to have a human quality.
KenMueller Agree, have to manage email according to open time slots. At times I can't get to email until late at night on busiest days.

Thank you Darcy. We are at begining stages of a logo / brand. I will most definitely give you consideration when that stage is reached.

Brand consistency is so important. Actually in the process of changing logo's for a website / blog due to this exact issue.
Thank you for the posting Darcy.

Excellent post Ken! These reminders / guides, if heeded, potentially transform a website from public neglect to one of interest.
ginidietrich No, I do not think it should.

ginidietrichAmeena Gorton Yes, it must lead back to the proprietor and his / her own "real estate".
Once again, thanks for the time invested ginidietrich .
Although I'm not a big fan of Facebook, it is ubiquitous and therefore can not be ignored from a marketers standpoint.
ginidietrich Okay, thank you

KenMuellerginidietrich Lol, should I be registering "7 Tool Breakdown"? Or does Gini get the credit?
ginidietrich Thanks for the 7 Tool breakdown.
Gamification and mobile content are increasingly vital for any marketer who plans to be relevant in the near future.
Personally, I have to invest more time with analytics. That is one powerful tool I've neglected.
linneawilkeginidietrich They probably aren't doing their homework, i.e. reading other blogs, etc. Most likely these are people who are seeking quick money or commissions.

It does get frustrating ginidietrich Those seeking clients in this manner are in for a big surprise... it doesn't work. The strangest thing is that you'd think by now, with all the information on the Web, that they'd get it. No real relationship works without some trust, and that takes time.
ginidietrich Thank you... stories resonate through our own experiences. In addition to evoking emotions, they have an added value: active listening as opposed to passive listening. The benefit in marketing would be a stronger remembrance of message.

Storytelling teaches in a way that is receptive to the listener. As opposed to "This is what to do, if not, these are the consequences..." type of instruction.
Excellent Gini, thank you for the post.

ginidietrich Apologies, meant to say "it would be to one's best interest..."
Then he continued to argue his point, which seems like a waste of time. Once you label another with total lack of respect, the discourse is pretty much over.
