Opinion-editorials, articles and hard news published in third-party media have more influence, build more brand equity and create a pull force in selling than does material published on social networks.  Those networks include LinkedIn.    Sure, LinkedIn is one of the most powerful professional networking tools.

Fifty Shades of Subject Lines

SpeakerSue Says...

you can feel certain that your reader will identify it as spam. To read Fifty Shades of Grey (I’m up to Fifty Shades Darker), for the email exchanges between Anastasia and Christian is like reading Playboy for the engrossing articles. But while you’re reading, take a moment to read the subject lines (seriously, I mean it!). And then think about the subject lines you write.

Marketing For Public Speakers: Text Messaging

Great Public Speaking

The first thing is you don’t want to be buying lists of phone numbers and spamming text messages to them. One thing is for sure. People look at their text messages and they normally do it within minutes of receiving them and mostly immediately when they receive it. They might wait a week or more to check their email, they may never check it or they may check it sometime whenever they feel like it, but not text. They check it NOW.
