Online Reputation Management with VendAsta CEO, Brendan King

Your online reputation can make or break your business. Just like profit margins, what people say about your company online is important to its survival. Every day, people go online to write reviews or read reviews on sites like Yelp, Urbanspoon, TripAdvisor and Facebook. Small and medium-sized businesses rely heavily on word of mouth to get new customers or increase sales, so building an online reputation can have BIG consequences. That’s why more and more businesses are turning to agencies and third party service providers for reputation management.

Global Content Marketing with Heidi Lorenzen, Chief Marketing Officer for Cloudwords

Have you ever used Google Translate to convert website content from one language to another? I have and while Google does an amazing job of attempting translation, I just didn’t know enough about the language and cultural differences to know if the translation accurate or unintentionally offensive. Now imagine doing that on a much larger scale in multiple languages across multiple cultures. Things would go bad very quickly. Well, today’s guest is Heidi Lorenzen, Chief Marketing Officer for Cloudwords, a Marketing Globalization Cloud. It takes all of a business’s marketing material and automatically prepares it for use in any other...

Using Music To Create Brand Recognition with Colleen Fahey, U.S. Managing Director Sixieme Son

Sound is part of a universal language that can convey emotion, communicate information, and help us understand how to navigate our daily lives. It can also be a powerful tool for creating brand recognition. Today’s guest is Collen Fahey, U.S. Managing Director Sixieme Son, an audio branding agency exclusively dedicated to sound identity, audio branding architecture and in-store sound design. Collen explained that audio branding is not about jingles or licensing popular music.

Who Can You Trust? How Do You Make Sure?

Last summer, MIT Sloan Management Review published a research study about the lack of consumer trust in the market place. Among other things, the study examined why trustees are so wary when it comes to online providers. The study is worth a read—our reasons for feeling wary are well earned. In this article, though, we thought it would be useful to teach consumers how to figure out for themselves whether or not a company is actually trustworthy—especially since, ironically, so much trust can be faked! As someone who will likely have to consider outsourcing some (or maybe even most) of...

Be More Productive with Clients, Staff, and Business Partners

Collaborating with clients via shared screens is a great way to save time and speed up conversations. In the past I’ve used solutions like Join.me, Skype, GotoMeeting, and Google+ Hangouts. Each solution has it’s pros and cons. Picking the right screen sharing solution really depends on your client and your project needs. Here’s a new solution I just came across that looks very interesting. I just completed a 30 minute call with a developer friend and we were able to switch back and forth between out desktops, edit, and interact with apps and the audio and video quality was flawless....

Using Badges to Analyze Communication Patterns

Are you tuned into what’s happening in wearable technology? If not, you might be missing business opportunities. SocioMetricSolutions has developed a social sensing employee badge that is capable of capturing face-to-face interactions, extracting social signals from speech and body movement, and measuring the proximity and relative location of users. The goal is to analyze work place social interactions to provide feedback to workers, which might sound scary at first, but what if this could be applied to group events like social gatherings, trade shows, meetings with client prospects? Imagine meeting with a prospective client, monitoring the conversation, and then getting...

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm an online entrepreneur and food lover. I enjoy playing the guitar, running, learning, and eating what my wife Jill creates in our kitchen. Our two kids help us eat most everything she makes so we don't have to burn all the calories ourselves.

When I'm not blogging or working on other projects, I like to help Jill with her food blog at SimpleDailyRecipes.com. After I got her hooked on blogging we decided it would be fun to create a food related social community. So, we started this Great Cooks Community to bring food lovers together in one place so we can all share the joy of one of life's simple pleasures.

Enjoy,

Charles
My favorite foods are:
Tex-Mex, BBQ, Italian
My favorite chefs/cooks are:
My sweet wife
