  • Why YouTube and Facebook Video Works

Why YouTube and Facebook Video Can Work Together

There have been many questions over Facebook's aggressive entry into video and some have even questioned whether or not YouTube will lose their #1 position in online video. The short answer is No, and I want to explain why I am that confident to say this. The largest reason YouTube isn't going to lose it's hold on the video world is because it's entrenched and experienced. By that, I mean that you don't hear someone say "Let me Facebook that" for a video. [...]

  • Mactan Island, Cebu City, and Tubod Flowing Waters

My Trip to Cebu, Mactan Island, and Tubod Flowing Waters Resort

The Cebu leg of the trip was supposed to be a bit more than it turned out to be. When I had originally purchased tickets for all of us to fly there, I wasn't predicting three low-pressure storms to be in the vicinity. I had hoped to see the Chocolate Hills in Bohol via landing in Cebu and then taking the Supercat ferry to the other island. The ocean was churning and trips were being cancelled in quick succession. A boat on the other [...]

  • Using Periscope in Your Content Plan

Why You Need Periscope in Your Content Strategy

Periscope has hit the app store hard thanks to Twitter buying it up and integrating it into the platform. People have been testing the waters with it and others have already begun building a strong audience. This is so much different than Vine because it's live streaming audio and not a 6-second clip. This is also much more that adds onto YouTube and Twitch because of what it brings to the conversation. Simply start broadcasting and anyone can join in and begin watching, commenting, [...]

  • Using Blog Commenting to Drive Traffic

Use Blog Commenting to Build Quality Traffic

Blog commenting isn't dead just yet, however, it is if you just plan on spamming links and not adding value. This is more about how to comment correctly and create value out of commenting on articles. Participating in conversations with other readers provide a value for everyone when it's done right. The definition of right is subjective of course. To keep it simple let's define it as content that continues the conversation or adds the discussion. This should eliminate those comments that are [...]

  • Managing a PR Disaster

Managing a Public Relations and a Social Media Disaster

There are those people who can grit through some public relation disasters and those that can’t. Being the face of a company when an employee or even yourself really messes up and your customers are more than happy to give some negative feedback can be tough. I will be the first to tell you that it can make you sick to your stomach. I have had sleepless weeks over a social media disaster, and I haven't even run some of [...]

Winning or Losing With Facebook

Facebook has been winning in traffic and new users for almost a decade now and things have been changing steadily as the platform has grown. Every website matures eventually and we continue seeing progress from the types of content you see in your Newsfeed to how a page benefits a business.

  • Time to Think Like a Publisher

Time to Think Like a Publisher

What are bloggers, photographers, graphic designers, YouTubers, or anyone else creating content? The answer is publishers. We publish all forms of media that people are looking for. Some do it to teach and others do it to spread Hollywood gossip but at the end of the day they are publishers. They are literally publishing to the world and instead take a more humble approach by calling themselves less. Furthermore, we market our content no differently than CNN telling you what’s [...]

  • The Best Investment I Have Ever Made

The Best Investment I have Ever Made

I have put blood, sweat, and even tears into many investments. Most never paid off but a few have. This is a story about my sister-in-law and her business. Most people go to the bank and get a loan for their business, or maybe they get investors. There is still a segment of people that take something small and grow it slowly into something big. This is one of those stories and it happened in the Philippines. Back in 2006, [...]

  • Should Mistakes Last Forever?

Should Mistakes Last Forever?

Over the last few years people have been losing their jobs and forced out of the public eye in pure shame. There have been documentaries covering social justice warriors and the effects on the people who have made mistakes and said or have done the wrong things. For example, the head of public relations at IAC, Justine Sacco, made a huge mistake by tweeting to her 170 followers that she was on the way to South Africa. Her tweet basically [...]

  • Our Visit to Bicol

My Philippines Vacation to Albay

Not all my posts have to be business. In fact part of this blog is for us to get to know each other. I decided that I would share some of my vacation to Bicol, Philippines with everyone and give some insight on what we did in June. This part of our 3-part trip was to go home and see my wife’s family in their small village. It was an 11 day visit that I had dreaded at first because [...]
