I tell stories that get your brand noticed, engage customers, and drive sales. Telling compelling brand stories isn't enough. Knowing which to tell, to whom, and where makes all the difference.
With over a decade of copy writing, crafting compelling web content, blog building, and writing for magazines and e-zines, I know the ins and outs of online content. It's different from other publishing venues. In the end though, it's all about storytelling. Your brand has one, people deserve to hear it, and I'll help you tell it..
An accomplished, multi-dimensional strategic thinker, and driven to innovate and excel at both micro and macro levels. A rare combination of talent and experience, always ready for the next challenge...blah, blah, blah!!!
Hey, I love creating content, too!
Quoted in The Great Big Book of Things Marketers Say, 2013:
"Know your audience, what’s important to them, and
how to reach them."

You're right. More connections = more opportunities. It's the real reason to tell your kids they should go to college. It's the network, not the piece of paper. LinkedIn delivers the ability to grow your network like never before, and do it with people who really matter to your professional ladder climbing. You help each other grow professionally, and help your organizations at the same time.... x 500 (or 5,000).
That being said, I have yet to embrace the complete LI Whore mentality. Those somewhat affiliated with marketing, advertising, writing, startups, and/or consumer electronics are a go for me. Should I open my eyes, and expand my horizons?
I'd like to add you to my profesional network on LinkedIn.

Moral of the story: If you are going to takes a bite out of Googles's revenue, keep your big, fat mouth shut about it, lest they decide to return the favor.
2nd - Don't too many eggs in the Google organic SERP basket.
Thanks for the post.
Of course being on the first page of Google get's you something if:
- You're there for a keyword people actually search for in any sort of volume
- That keyword is relavent to your business
- Your listing is near the top of the page
and, of course.....
- Your website converts visitors
The problem is, of course in all likliehood you won't actually stay in the top position, what with all the Google algorithm changes, and so many others gunning for the top spot for valuable keywords. It's somewhat of a losing game anyway.
While it is certainly nice to be there, the resources it takes to get and stay there can reduce the actual ROI to much lower than you'd first think. In addition, relying heavilly on Google traffic is NOT a sound way to build a long term business. It's somewhat like balancing ones business on a three legged stool with one broken leg.
Just my .02c here
As I discovered today, much to my chagrin, LinkedIn now tyells you when you've entered the dreaded auto moderation status. Where your group status formerly appeared (mine was typically" top contributor" or one step down, but that's no defense against SWAM), there is now a blu box stating:
"Your group posting status
Your posts across groups are being moderated temporarily because one of your recent contributions was marked as spam or flagged for not being relevant."
That really hurts, but at least you now know instantly.
