  • Automate your social media efforts

    08 January 2010 Automate your social media efforts

    We often speak about cross-pollinating your social networking efforts meaning syndicating your updates in a way that when you update one network, it automatically sends the same update to other networks, saving you time. The other benefit of syndication is to promote the content you produce on one site by featuring it on another site in an automated way. Although being inhuman and "automated" is typically frowned on, this is an exception as it is your work you are automating and is your opportunity to increase exposure for what you are working on. Although there is no magic pill to automate all of your efforts, there are select tools to point each social network at the other but we want ...

  • Austin Haunted Houses Using Social Media

    16 October 2009

    Top Two The most popular, well produced haunted houses in central Texas are implementing social media campaigns to attract and scare the crap out of people: Mansion of Terror's social media campaign is the brain child of David Neff who plays a role in the horror show as well; my favorite of their many productions and campaigns is the trailer for their new "Death Asylum" (click here to see the video and get all worked up before you head out to go see the Mansion of Terror). What Mansion of Terror has done that is unique is actively reaching out to individual bloggers ...

  • Communication Shift from 1980 to 2009

    06 October 2009

    My, how times have changed! As a child of the 80s, living in a small town, I remember watching Mash with my grandparents and answering the rotary phone, "Hello, this is the Anglin residence" at age 3. Now, I have Twitter direct messages coming to my smartphone... my how times have changed! We wanted to share this infographic with you outlining the massive shift in advertising, but I would argue that it more clearly demonstrates a definite shift in communication. No longer are we limited by an ivory wall-mounted phone with the tangled cord, we are liberated to communicate in a number of ways. This ...
