    Lots of good advice in that article. I've used examples of companies trying to jump on memes or hashtags, or trying to capitalize on a holiday or event and getting it horribly wrong. It happens...

    There are good companies who do this sort of work and bad companies that do this sort of work. If you contract with a bad company, you can spend a great deal of money and get nothing for it. ...

    I'd guess, if you want high quality franchisees, putting an advertisement on Craig's list isn't the way to go. If you want serious candidates, with the backing and resources to make this work, ...

    I think they work because there are always going to be people who believe that they can strike it rich and be successful without working hard to get there. No one tells them that the people who...

    My favorite is the blogging ads - "I started my blog three months ago and now I'm making $10,000 a month" and then they offer to teach you all their tricks. Seriously?

    What about Amazon? I know people generally think of books and movies when they think of Amazon, but there are actually a ton of products being sold there. I looked up car floor mats just out of...

    I've seen The Profit and liked it. That's probably one I would watch on a regular basis. I haven't seen any of the others. Although a customer of ours was just on West Texas Investors Club, ...

    Sounds like you need to hire for specific qualities, so you need to figure out how to devise an interview situation that allows to assess if potential hires have those qualities or not. Some of...

    Fair enough - it is used by certain groups. Made a classic marketing mistake there, assumed that since I didn't use it and didn't know anyone who did, than nobody was using it. Good lesson to...

    So you put up a product that you already knew a lot of websites were selling. Your differentiation strategy is to sell cheaper and offer product for free. There are a lot of reasons why that might...

    Google + has 300 million monthly active users? In what reality? I mostly agree with the rest of the article, but there's no future in Google+ and no reason to use it. I have yet to read any...

    Definitely agree - one number is best. Very good point that using multiple numbers makes a company look small and amateurish. When you call Fed Ex or Charter or Verizon or Paypal, there's one...

    I started your survey, but we do very little marketing locally, so I didn't complete it. I didn't think my answers would be helpful. I think mobile advertising can work for some companies, but...

    Welcome to the forum. It always helps to ask specific questions for which you would like answers or advice. I'm sure we all have advice to share, but it's much more helpful if we know what areas...
