Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule - New Media Leaders

Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule - New Media Leaders | Curation Revolution |
Christo is an artist whose ideas change hardened skeptics. How do we lucky few Internet marketers become Christo? How can our ideas slouch toward BIGNESS?
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Join New Media Leaders
When my friend Phil Buckley asked me to join his new age Internet marketing think tank - New Media Leaders - my first thought was COOL!.

New Media Leaders (or as Iike to think of us New Riders of the Purple Sage) Include:

@1918 Phil Buckley - Best SEO I know.
@ MarkTraphagen - Recognized G+ Expert around the world.

@CommsNinja Amy Lewis - Community Evangelist for Cisco

@ScentTrail (me) - Atlantic BT Marketing Director & Content Marketer

Phil's idea, one I agree with and embrace, is the sum of our Internet marketing parts is greater than the whole.

My first post to this unique collective is Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule: 

 Stay Tuned :).

Marketing the Art of Shoes - Curagami

The Power of SHOES
Isabel Flowers wrote a fascinating post in Artforum about "sneakerheads" and the 1.2 billion dollar aftermarket for sneakers. Flowers' post got us thinking about flocking behavior, how weather-like the Internet is and what sneakers, baseball cards and art can teach us about marketing.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
