I’ve been a user and a fan of Twitter since I got introduced to the service back in 2008. So working closely with Twitter to get the Twitter Buy Button integrated with Fanatics was already excited. But getting a retweet from the original brain behind he service is not something I could have imagined. Let […]
This is Why I Speak at Conferences
Last week I spoke at a panel at the SMX conference in San Jose on the topic of retargeting. When I’m visiting a conference, I always make an effort to meet new people.

Competing with Yourself, Do You Have What It Takes?
Oh the irony. I’m competing with my own SEO strategies from years ago.

A quick check with Twitter analytics gave me two interesting data points of last week tweets; One tweet got a massive engagement rate […]
How @Buffer Made My Day, for Days in a Row
Vanity, my favorite sin. This is a quote from the movie: Devils Advocate. The vanity has definitely worked on me, as I’ve been walking on clouds for the last couple of day. Ever since one of my favorite web apps, Buffer, has put one of my posts on their list of suggested post for their […]
