Google Plus Needs to Become Content Marketing Friendly

Google+ may be growing, but anyone who spends time on it wishes it had more engagement with their connections and more content being shared. Unfortunately, it doesn’t. Why is this happening?

Facebook’s Desperate Attempt to Prove Its Value (Test it Yourself)

Your CEO Doesn’t Trust That You’re Doing Your Job!

Did you see the startling statistic shared last week that 70 percent of CEOs have lost trust in marketers? If you’re a marketer, like I am, that should alarm you.
