SPOS #427 - The Future Of Work With Jacob Morgan

Welcome to episode #427 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. It's not just the marketing of a business that fascinates me. It's everything about the future of work. This includes the actual physical office spaces that we use (and, yes, that could be at home, Starbucks or even in the tallest building of the financial district). How will teams be structured? What will the leaders of the future look like? Is Mark Zuckerberg the prototype of the CEO? It's these same thoughts that consume Jacob Morgan. So much so, that he recently published a business book titled, The Future Of Work - Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders And Create A Competitive Organization. Jacob also wrote The Collaborative Organization in 2012 and advises many Fortune 1000 businesses on innovation and the future of work. So, if we live in a world where more and more people can start a business in their garage and sell a seven-person startup for billions of dollars, what does the future of work look and feel like? Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #426 - Everybody Writes With Ann Handley

Welcome to episode #426 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. When everybody is writing, it can be challenging to find good writing (let alone, great writing). Ann Handley is a great writer. Don't believe me? Just start reading her blog. She's had an incredible career, including being the co-founder of ClickZ and she's currently the Chief Content Officer at MarketingProfs. When people ask me about what it takes to be great at writing content (online or otherwise), I think of my dear friend, Ann. I was honored to be asked to write a blurb for her just-released book, Everybody Writes. If you're going to be writing anything (from a tweet or blog post to a book of your own), this is the book you want to read, study and leave right next to whatever it is that you will be typing on. If you lead marketing teams, you're going to want to pick up a few copy for those who are responsible for the words as well. Prior to Everybody Writes, she co-authored (with C.C. Chapman), Content Rules. She's also a columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine, and a very passionate person about the power and importance of content and words. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #425 - Laughing All The Way To The Bank With James Altucher

Welcome to episode #425 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast.I got a strange email from James Altucher a while back. It was all about stand-up comedy. He was following my blog (which, kind of made me want to tidy the place up a little bit after knowing that), and he could tell that I am both a fan of standup comedy, and a student of the mechanics behind it. I love everything from how comedians develop jokes, to their biographies to documentaries about the art form, and even watching/listening to them being interviewed (yes, big fan of both Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee and Marc Maron's WTF Podcast). If you don't know James, he is a trader, investor, writer, and entrepreneur. His bio is an impressive one. He's an investor in Buddy Media (which sold to Salesforce.com for about $800 million) as well as bitly. His latest book is called, The Power Of No, and it's a great read. Also, if you're not following his blog, The Altucher Confidential, you don't know what you're missing. James and I begun a dialogue about how important understanding standup comedy can be for business success. And, after several email exchanges and back and forths, I convinced him to come on the show to discuss just how important standup comedy can be for business success. The point is that neither of us are comedians (we wouldn't even claim to be funny), but understanding and appreciating standup comedy is probably something that everyone in business should study, because we both feel that it was an important factor in our professional journeys. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #424 - The Efficiency Of Brands With Jeremiah Owyang

Welcome to episode #424 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. I was in Silicon Valley last month doing some work with Google. I arrived a day early and spent an afternoon in Palo Alto with Jeremiah Owyang. While he's been on the podcast before to talk about his new business, Crowd Companies, it felt like the perfect timing to reconnect and see just how well brands are working in the collaborative economy. Will hotels be competitive in a world of Airbnb? Will taxi companies adapt to Uber? Is every industry at risk of being disrupted by consumers and new startups who can connect, share and sell to one another in a much more efficient way because of mobile and connected technologies? Ultimately, what we're seeing is that new startups are efficient, and it's forcing brands to be efficient. Will they be up for the challenge? Just how dramatic is this evolution? The former Forrester and Altimeter Group analyst thinks it's going to be bigger than anything we could ever imagine. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #423 - The Marketing Performance Blueprint With Paul Roetzer

Welcome to episode #423 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. I have been in this business a long time. I was there before Google existed, and I watched the birth of search engine marketing as it's entire evolution to today. To think that brands still don't understand the power of performance-based marketing and look quizzically at marketing automation is astounding. As marketers, we've begged - for decades - to get better at knowing our consumers and being able to deliver a more personalized brand experience to them. And now... We have it. Here we are. I met Paul Roetzer a long way back. He had just opened his own performance based agency, PR 20/20. Since then, he became HubSpot's first agency partner and published two business book, The Marketing Agency Blueprint (2012), and the recently released, The Marketing Performance Blueprint. It's a great book that points to a very powerful present and a very profound future for marketing. It's ours to grab. Will we? Enjoy the conversation.
