mobile + social + location = events

m

Events are turning out to be the primary way that mobile & social & location work together. Hot spots on the timeline. Before I start, I think it’s safe to say that I’m not an event planner but I have played one on TV. I think of an event as having three phases. It’s going to happen – Tweetups have become a great way to help promote events. By using twitter...

The brick & mortar website: 10 ways to plug location into your site.

T

Last week I posted about the future of websites as essentially being a database sending data out to a businesses outposts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc and then I posted about businesses who have brick and mortar outlets having a distinct advantage over purely online businesses.
