I had a chance to connect with Jennifer Jones, the hostess and MC of Marketing Voices Podcast yesterday. She’s one of my former colleagues and will be a long time friend. I learned that her podcast, which helps marketing leaders understand social media is continuing to take off. Although I made a list of the many marketing podcasts, as I understand it, the listernership is up to 100,000 downloads in the last month, that blows away almost any other podcast that I know of. Apparently some big name brands have noticed too, she’s now sponsored by Webex AND Intel, both companies want to reach marketers and the social sphere, respectively. Her show is also syndicated by MarketingProfs, one of the … Continue readingMarketing Executives should listen to Marketing Profs Podcast
I’ve been gone from PodTech for nearly a month, and can really be objective in remembering the experience. You never realize how much something matters to you until you move away from it. Sadly, John Furrier has moved away from PodTech yesterday, and steps onward.

I wasn’t able to attend Dave McClure’s Facebook conference, but am enjoying the different opinions from the A-List crowd, they never fail to entertain. Fellow panelists Robert Scoble, Rodney Rumford, and Dave McClure had to fight their way into the conversation. Thanks Tom for the video. Be sure to watch the final minutes where you hear Dave rant about open vs closed, and finally Calacanis rip on some poor soul, be nice guys. By the way, does anybody know if Mark Zuckerberg showed up to the conference?
I had the opportunity to interview Joseph Loong of AOL’s Community Connection (which has blogs, forums, photo galleries, social network features) at Miami’s WeMedia conference at the University of Miami. He’s one of the community folks at AOL Blogs and helps the community become more efficient bloggers and communicators and shares with us the challenges to big media corporations like AOL and what the future holds. Thanks Rocky for editing!
I’m so honored and pleased to have met Jennifer Jones, my former colleague at PodTech. We’ve become fast friends over the past year, I remember when we first met in person during my interview, we hit it off immediately! Jennifer draws from great experience crafting the first PR industry, and has worked with many of the greats, including CEOs of companies we all know in Silicon Valley. She’s well connected to the VC industry, and I continue to learn a lot from her insight and experience. Yes, she’s been a major influencer on me to understand and appreciate better the PR industry and strategic marketing.
