Beware The Promisers

Beware The Promisers | Curation Revolution |

Marty Note
Great Share by Mark Traphagen (@MarkTraphagen) of a post by Sean Cowen (@praguebooks) that reminds us there is no silver bullet in digital marketing, life or diets. There is no magic pill to make us skinny, rich and have 10M followers.

At lest no such pill unless your name is Oprah and she worked hard to get to a point where she can do less and make more (so even Oprah didn't find a silver bullet).

Beware the promisers because they don't know. One hard thing you learn fast in this crazy business of Internet marketing is no one knows nothing. Or the minute you think you know something it changes anyway so once again no one knows nothing.

Those who promise imply they know. They know NOT because to promise it to lie and feeding our inherent desire for a silver bullet is criminal. I'm about to speak with 100+ ecommerce teams at the FedEx Ecom Summit in Atlanta and I will be careful to share experience and promise NOTHING.

Because anyone who promises you something is trying to sell you a lie and so should be avoided if not harassed.

Like the argument, but for me politicians come first.

GPlus Guru Mark Traphagen
If you don't know Mark you should and if you don't use GPlus and your an Internet marketer you should be shot. Mark is more than just one of the top GPlus experts in the world, he is also a friend and fellow cancer survivor.

Something about surviving a bout with the Big C that makes you want to give back and Mark does. He speak all over the country (and soon the world I predict) about the power of concepts like the new SEO, GPlus, Google authorship and semantic web.

If you aren't part of the more than 80,000 followers Mark already has on Gplus we suggest you hop on board this train since your Internet and content marketing will be better because of it.

Amazing Google+ Conversation Re: Kutcher,, Web 3.0 Is Happening NOW

Amazing Google+ Conversation Re: Kutcher,, Web 3.0 Is Happening NOW | Curation Revolution |
Why Ashton Kutcher Doesn't Signal The End of Days & Rocks
Forbes is funny. I love their coverage of the digital revolution, but journalists are…
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

My friend @MarkTraphagen has baited a great trap on Google Plus. Mark is riffing off of my piece about @Scoopit and Ashton Kutcher this morning and he invited two of my favorite Internet marketing gurus to weigh in. 

Mark's move makes this conversation a MUST read. Hope you will weigh in too. Do you think Ashton Kutcher's 15M followers’ means the end of days or can the web expand and contract to support a new thinking where AND replaces Zero Sum?

Rare that you know when a great conversation is ABOUT to take place, this is one of those rare times. Hop in and join us :).
