048: C-Suite Must Empower Tech Employees In The Boardroom

The C-suite has lost its way when it comes to testing out new technology and selecting the right software and tools for the business. As we moved from on-premise/installed software to cloud computing we also moved from testing and setting up “bake-offs” for analyze tools to a cloud computing model that often time involves the executive reading about a new tool in a Forbes blog post and buying it with the company credit card and telling the employees to use it. We must change how we test...

047: Influencer Marketing, Beyond A One-Night Stand

I decided to change it up on this episode of FOMOfanz as I switch to the other side of the microphone for two very unique interviews I did on the topic of influencer marketing. As you'll hear in both interviews I tried to provide a unique perspective as someone that grew his brand as an influencer and has worked with 30 different companies in an influencer capacity while also being someone that has implemented influencer marketing campaigns and works with brands in 2017 to build out...

045: Think Like A Fan: Disrupting Marketing Status Quo

If brands created an experience and community that inspired fandom like sports does in every city around the world, would brand marketing stop feeling the need to disrupt every good blog or video with an annoying call to action or ruin every social media platform with self promotional content? Fan’z? When most people hear the word “fan” they immediately think of sports and someone who dresses up in their favorite teams colors for every game. Disruption? When most people hear the words...

044: How to get leadership to buy-in on change!

The rate of change is like nothing we’ve seen before and thanks to cloud technology, mobile devices and the desire for companies to embrace digital transformation that rate isn’t slowing down anytime soon. I love change, I even get introduced on stage as a Change Evangelist but getting leadership or my manager or my co workers to embrace the change I want to lead hasn’t always been fun or successful. When you start breaking down how much change is happening around us in business and our...

043: World Day Against Trafficking In Persons #HelpErase

I often talk about the value of social media to help change the world and make it a better place. Talking about it is a start but to truly make an impact we must put it into action. Last year I discovered an organization known as ERASE a group of leaders dedicated to erasing the child trafficking epidemic here in the United States. ERASE’s mission is to: "be a unifying voice creating a cultural shift in the perception of child trafficking, working towards its eradication by empowering...

042: Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Audio, Video Innovation = Omni Sensory Experiences!

As we look towards the future of innovation the question becomes what will the world look like powered by artificial intelligence integrated with augmented and virtual reality. Before we can answer that question we must look at that underlying trends of today’s technology and why and how we are seeking these new experiences. I believe we’ve spent the last 10 years using technology and digital media to distance ourselves from the human experience to the point where unplugging and meeting...

041: Vlog vs Podcasting and Anchor Love

We’re in the midst of digital content overload as we have more channels and types of content to consume than ever before. I’m asked almost weekly by brands and entrepreneurs which should they create, a video blog or podcast. This question is an interesting one as I’ve been a podcast host for 4 years and currently host two podcasts while also being an evangelist for live video creating over 1800 live streams in the last 2 years. You could say I’m stuck in the middle as the recording of...

040: Digital Innovation #INNOcon Interview: Melanie Deziel and Nick Cicero

Sometimes I just have to pinch myself when it comes to the events, people and experiences I get access too on a daily basis. This week I got to interview two billionaires, got access to an embargoed Nasa project and interviewed two of the speakers for the upcoming Innovation Congress Event. The interview was so good I had to rip the audio out and post it as a full episode. What is Innovation Congress? Below you’ll find some of the amazing speakers and topics that will be discussed at the...

The journey to be becoming a professional public speaker seems to be as unique as every speaker's wardrobe.

038: How Authenticity Drives Audience Action!

Authenticity has become something that is harder to derive from this digital space as we build more distance and roadblocks between ourselves and the people we are actually trying to reach. The best compliment I get when I get off stage from speaking is, “You are the same person online as you are offline”. To me, that is the epitome of authenticity. It’s the idea that you are able to convey and be the person online that you are offline and you don’t separate the two. To find yourself,...

037: Facebook Groups: Future of business is community!

Community is something we all can picture but I doubt many of us think about it daily or even picture how much communities have changed over the last 10 years thanks to social media. Facebook had its first community summit this week and made a major announcement changing their full mission statement to: "Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together" Beyond the mission statement change the focus was on facebook groups and giving admins more tools and...

036: Social Media ROI: Screenshot Awesomeness

Social Media Return On Investment is a funny topic as it's something that's been debated for many years and something that many people have proven possible yet there are still many naysayers or those that simply use the basic data available and treat social media as a check mark or lost cause. I didn’t want to rehash old news or spark the same debate as there are many great blog posts, books and thought leaders that breakdown how to create and map ROI with campaigns, individual projects...

035: Attention Hacking: How To Reach Your Digital Customers!

How do I make sure the right audience is reading my content? How do I make sure my customers see what I’m posting on social media? How much is too much content and what social networks should I be on for my company and my personal brand? For me answering these questions requires a business reply not a social media or marketing answer. For each social network, for each piece of content and for each type of account we must first decide what success looks like, identify individual goals and...

034: It’s 2017 will the REAL marketers please stand up!

Let's face it it's about time we started holding marketing agencies, marketing leaders, and marketing projects to some kind of benchmark. When I'm asked my thoughts on the future of marketing or what I think about the current state of social media marketing and what's happening with the future of TV advertising I often remind people that for the last 7 to 9 years this industry has been flying by the seat of their pants. Now "winging it" is something I take great pride add and something...

033: What ADHD can teach you about entrepreneur productivity.

Since being diagnosed ADHD at 31 years old I've made it my mission to be transparent and upfront about the impact of being diagnosed has had on me personally as a Dad and my entrepreneurship journey. I firmly believe that as we become more transparent as a digital culture the value of owning our own individual vulnerabilities will be directly linked to our individual success as well as our relatability to the community. I've always enjoyed being the champion of the outcasts, tapping...
