Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Google is giving more and more power to authors and the networks they create. My friend @MarkTraphagen is becoming a "mini-Google" because his content authority is going up fast, very fast. 

I called Mark a "mini-Google" in an interview with the Raleigh News and Observer yesterday (printed next Tuesday I think). 

Mark adds about 400 people a day to his Google Plus followers because he is a leading authority on G+. Google Plus is tipping RIGHT NOW, so Mark is riding a massive tsunami wave.

This post explains how to find out your Google Plus PageRank and what it means to become a Mark Traphagen on Google Plus.

The Only Thing Content Marketing Has To Fear Is Content Marketing Itself: Disrupt or Drown

As every B2B brand turns to content marketing, we're about to be hit by a deluge of... crap. Here's what you can do about it.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Why I've Moved On From Content Marketing
It was hard to realize I had to leave a beloved concept, but content marketing as I've preached it since 2003 is over. What killed the goose that was laying such golden eggs?

GREED mixed with incompetence killed our content marketing goose as this excellent slideshare points out. They believe the end is in sight. I believe the end is in our rearview mirror. 

I would still rather have MORE content than less, but any content marketing strategy must have a disruptive element. I've shared several posts on how to create a disruptive culture and form disruptive internet marketing:

Why Your Internet Marketing Must Disrupt To Win 

Good news is disruption requires creative energy and risk taking so most won't attempt it. Bad news is creating great disruptive Internet marketing is like anything else because it requires creative energy and risk taking (lol).

Don't contribute to the content marketing deluge of the ordinary. Live is way to short to not be GREAT. Disrupt and you will create Internet marketing that matters, cuts through clutter instead of adding to it, and may just save the world and how cool would that be?
