Personalize Your Business With Online Reputation Monitoring
Online reputation monitoring (ORM) is here. I suspect you knew or recognize that intellectually, but have you paid attention to it practically?

One of the aspects of writing online that I am constantly surprised so few people pay attention to is the critical importance of writing good headlines, good titles that help readers identify the topic of the piece and whether it's something they should read or not. There's a secondary benefit too for those of you savvy about search engines, but even without that, I wanted to just write briefly about the critical importance of good titles.

Recently there has been some talk on a few other DC-based social media consultant blogs about the rise of "Government 2.0" and whether the so-called experts in the space really deserve that title.

These are the web masters, communications managers, PR directors and other such people who are the voices waiting to be unleashed within government offices everywhere.

Many marketers are asking me about personalized marketing, which you should expect to see more and more of in the next few years. We've already seen behavioral targeting in display ads and personalized search, and we'll see more personalized advertising emerge.
