I’m on a journey.
A journey to connect with and bring you my conversations with the heads of social media from the biggest and most successful brands in the world.
And I want you to go with me.
Because so many small businesses find social media overwhelming and confusing. They dabble and thus find it ineffective in growing their business.
Big brands, though, tend to know what works and what doesn’t.
They have the budget, resources and brand name behind them and are at the forefront of social media strategy.
We can look at the fundamental social media principles these brands are successfully using and model and adapt them for our own businesses.
The idea is to break down the principles that are working and simply and easily apply them to our own businesses, with little to no budget.
I’m a Student, Not a Guru.
To quote Derek Sivers, “I’m a student, not a guru.”
When it comes to social media, there are no experts or gurus. We’re all students.
I learned a long time ago that if you want to be successful in something, find someone who is successfully doing what you want to do and model (not copy) them.
In other words, there’s no need to re-invent the wheel.
And since social media can be downright overwhelming, we all need help, ideas and guidance.
We’re going to figure this all out and what better way to learn it than by seeing how big brands successfully use it.

A Brief Bio
I was in the corporate Internet marketing space for 12 years, having worked for the likes of AOL, Yahoo!, Funny Or Die, and Vibrant Media.
During this time, I worked with a variety of advertisers from Fortune 500 brands to small businesses, running all different kinds of online ad campaigns.
A couple of years ago I realized the potential of social media and how entrepreneurs and small businesses can use it to grow their brand.
So I took my years of Internet marketing experience and knowledge, left my six-figure job and started my own business, immersing myself in social media marketing.
The business was born when I began passing that knowledge along to entrepreneurs and small businesses to help them achieve their own growth. As a result, I’ve helped dozens of entrepreneurs and small businesses grow their business through social media marketing.
I’m a regular contributor to Entrepreneur.com and run a wildly popular podcast called “Inside Social Media” for which I’m extremely grateful.
I regularly interact with the most successful brands in the world like Ford, Intel, McDonald’s, Pepsi, Coke, Gary Vaynerchuk, etc. So, I know what they’re doing right when it comes to social media marketing.
And I want you to benefit from that knowledge, too.
