Why Every Social Media Manager Should Be Under 25.
Last week a recent University of Iowagrad and, to this point, unknown journalist named Cathryn Sloan penned an article for the nextgen Journaltitled Why Every Social Media Manager Should Be Under 25.
The firestorm the article created was something to behold and while I do believe that Sloan’s greatest mistake was that she wrote a piece that seemed a bit oblivious to the fact that the whole world, and not just her age peers, would read it, I watched in horror at the way the piece incited the social media world over twenty five to react.

Inbound marketing is being touted as the new, best way to increase online leads, sales and revenue for businesses of all sizes.
More and more companies are using it.

How to Tell Your Story Like a Luxury Brand
Great brand stories capture your attention and inform you at the same time.
Luxury brands, or any premium-priced product, have to tell a great story. This gives them a tremendous advantage because it forces them to take the time to craft their story in a way that captures the imagination of their customers.
A brand that views themselves as affordable or even “just a little different” often overlooks the opportunity to tell a captivating story because it just assumes everyone understands their business. They can simply state what they offer and highlight their price or great service and move on.
