This is episode one of a brand-new series we’ve started here at Convince & Convert called Talk Digital to Me. Kate Volman interviews the team at Convince & Convert about who they are and what they do, starting with Jay Baer.
Today, I had the honor of delivering a keynote address to more than 3,000 content marketers at the Content Marketing World 2015 event in Cleveland. For the first time in my long career as a speaker, I used no slides whatsoever. I just talked about where content marketing is going, and how content marketing professionals […]
We take for granted our ability to text, tweet, Instagram, Snapchat, and email at a moment’s notice. But we shouldn’t.
It’s been a big month of launches, and more on the way (including a brand new Convince & Convert, and an amazing Social Pros eBook.) So far, my new Kindle/Nook eBook Youtility for Accountants has debuted, and now I’ve turned on an all-new version of my speaking-oriented site, JayBaer.com Since I’m now doing a ton […]
Lee Odden. Ann Handley. Jay Baer. I read their books and blogs. I hope you do too. Because they’re so generous with their ideas, all three were a big help to me before I knew them. And because they know so much about online marketing, I made an effort to come to know them. Now […]
In this edition of The Baer Facts, I talk with Kyle Lacy of ExactTarget about Mashable’s new Brand Lift program, whereby brands can work with Mashable or its agency partners, DigitasLBI and Vaynermedia, to create content assets that will appear on Mashable directly. Strategically, this is a very interesting move by Mashable, as it continues to position the site as a content […]
This week, 3500 people descended on the town of Nashville (well, actually on the Opryland Hotel, a city unto itself) for the IBM Smarter Commerce Summit. Our own Jay Baer was the host of this 3-day event, during which many exciting case studies and announcements where shared by companies leading the charge for smarter marketing. Among […]
For a long time now, I’ve been writing about the power of the “Social FAQ.” It’s a simple premise, really. If you want to garner trust and overcome objections, proactively answer the questions that your customers and potential customers have about you. This idea is echoed often by my friends Joe Pulizzi and Robert Rose […]
(video production by my friends at Candidio. Fast, inexpensive video editing and production. Check em out!) Excerpted from the video: I was happy to interview Brian Solis, a futurist, new media raconteur, and principal at Altimeter Group. Brian recently published his 5th book, The End of Business As Usual which I believe to be his […]
Last week I did a Webinar with my friends (and Convince & Convert sponsors) Argyle Social about social media timing. I use Argyle Social to send most of my tweets, Facebook and Linkedin updates et al, and the guys at Argyle (which specializes in advanced metrics and social reporting) agreed to put some of my […]
Here’s video proof of my new treadmill desk. I like it a lot. I have significantly more energy in the afternoons, and while I’m not logging a ton of miles (too much travel inhibits usage), I figure 2.5 miles/day (approximately) whenever I’m home is a net positive. I can type (I wrote this blog post […]
This is an interview I did for my friend Debra Ellis for her blog series Lessons Learned and Learning. I write a lot about the importance of humanization here at C&C, so in an effort to follow my own advice, I repost the interview here, hoping you’ll learn something about me you didn’t know. ——————– […]
