Medium's Message Is Cool & Easy via @CendrineMedia #cooltool

Medium's Message Is Cool & Easy via @CendrineMedia  #cooltool | Collaborative Revolution |

Medium Is A Cool Tool / Network
I'm indebted to @Cendrine Marrouat - for turning me on to @Medium. Medium is a micro-blogging tool more powerful with written content than Tumblr and learning the visual marketing side of the house.

The ease of the tool's use is outstanding. Tumblr can get wrapped on itself. I approach content creation from writing. I realize some approach content creation with images in mind first. And they should use Tumblr.

Writers will find Medium a great blogging tool that falls between your blogs and long form content on G+. With G+'s changes, pictures and Hangouts are coming out of the timeline as I understand it, finding a new home for long form content feels advisable.

And Medium rocks. It is easy to use, has great content curators like my friend Cendrine already using it and should scale into a powerful network. Find and follow my Medium Account here: 

And I will be sure to follow you back when I figure out how to do that (shouldn't be hard as nothing seems to be in Medium's well thought out User Interface).

Social Jabs and Blogging Right Hooks via @Searchdecoder & @EditorialIV

Marty Note: Vaynerchuk's Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook
If you haven't read Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook, the new book by Thank You economy author Vaynerchuk, you should. If you don't have time to read a book read Matthew Capala's (@SearchDecoder) post on Editorial IV:

Matthew's post is a mashup book review and experience share you can't afford to miss. Here is one snippet from Matthew's excellent post:

The importance of native content

The right approach to marketing on the Internet involves a wide range of disciplines: psychology, social science, and data analytics. But, above all, you need to be ‘native’ to the platform you are communicating through.

Jumping on Reddit with your big marketing idea that worked great on Facebook may be disastrous. Why shouldn’t you throw all your TV ads on YouTube? In theory, it sounds like a great idea to promote your services by answering questions on Quora. How about syndicating your latest blog post on Medium? Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

Great stuff!

Backstory SOT (Sign of the Times) or
How I Found Matthew's Right Hook

Yesterday I noticed a new @Scenttrail Marketing follower Joseph McKeating. Before thanking new followers I like to visit their Twitter page to see what they are about. I make this visit because I'm curious and interested and because I make it a point of segmenting my twitter following into helpful lists.

I noticed Joseph had a cool sounding link on his Twitter Profile - Editorial IV. Checking out Editorial IV I read Matthew's great post about Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook. I'd planned on writing a similar "book review", but now there was no need. No reason to add to perfection.

Instead of writing 1,000 words on Jab, Jab I can refer traffic there, use snippets from Matthew's piece and know that when needed I can send my tribe to Editorial IV to read Matthew's great post about Vaynerchuk.

If that all sounds a tad on the DIZZY side welcome to
the social media Jab, Jab, Jab followed by a blogging right hook.Let's call the connection I made yesterday with Joseph and Editorial IV "social media curation". Matthew is writer/Internet marketing thinker I already follow,, but Editorial IV created the chance to riff on top of Matthew's amazing Jab, Jab post.

To complete the circle, now I may write a post or two for Editorial IV. Welcome to the world of "social media curation" and blogging right hooks.

Personal Branding Get Paid To Be YOU Like Our Friend @MarkTraphagen | Collaborative Revolution |

Our friend, fellow Durham, NC resident and occasional Startup Factory visitor Mark Traphagen figured out something we ALL need to understand. Mark gets paid to be MARK Traphagen. Adding Mark to Eric Enge’s formidable Stone Temple Consulting was a brilliant idea making both brands stronger, wiser and better.
