Brandwatch1,694*22nd September l 4 PM BST | 11 AM EDT | 8 AM PT* Three letters are incredibly important to every marketing professional. ROI. As a marketer, ROI (return on investment), defines the success of a campaign, and informs decision-making and budget creation all the way throughout the enterprise up to the C-suite. Without ROI, it can be difficult to report the success or failure of a campaign, especially for social media activities. If your company is spending money on social media marketing, they’ll certainly want, and likely need, to see the ROI. Unfortunately, many marketers don’t measure ROI on their social media marketing efforts - because they don’t know how or simply don’t have the resources and tools to do so. During this hour-long hangout, Brandwatch VP of Inbound Marketing, Joel Windels, will address these unanswered questions and uncertainties, along with four leading social media industry influencers:   *Eric T. Tung* (Digital Recruiting Evangelist, BMC Software)  *Ted Rubin* (Social Marketing Strategist, Keynote Speaker, Brand Evangelist, and Acting CMO, Brand Innovators)  *Lauren Perkins* (Founder and CEO, Perks Consulting)  *Mike Allton* (CMO, SiteSell)  These social media influencers will share their advice and expertise on best practices for how to connect social to dollars and measure marketing professionals can calculate that elusive social ROI. The discussion will focus around the following core questions: 1. What ROI measurement methodologies should be used when tracking the value of social? 2. Can everything be measured in dollars, or is there a limit? Where does that limit lie? 3. What role does social play in proving the ROI of other activities? Can social data inform the ROI of, say, a TV ad or billboard campaign? We hope to see you there!Connecting social to dollars: How do you measure social media ROI?2015-09-22 17:00:00391

Ray Hiltz28,472*The Evolution of Google+ and Communities with @114918475211209783081  Google+ continues to evolve. Regardless of what Google itself is doing with the platform, users continue to bend and stretch it to suit their needs. As @107022061436866576067 stated on a comment thread recently: *“Google created the space. We hacked it.”* And no one has hacked Google+ more that our special guest @114918475211209783081  I can’t believe it’s taken this long to have Martin on the #RayBunch   show.  Martin and I go back to the early days of Google+. At that time - summer of 2011-  he was a one person welcoming committee. He invited me into my first hangout - and look at the rouble that’s got me into. :-) A couple show ago, we discussed Communities and Tribes with @110256277832745362774  Martin has formed tribes inside his Communities. There are a core number of people that support him and do the work to help him reach the goals they agree on. One of those goals is evolution of the PYB Community into the PYB Academy. www.plusyourbusiness.com/academy/ We’ll be talking to Martin about the changes in his Community (and G+ Communities as a whole) and the place Google+ now occupies in the social marketing palette. Nothing changes without disruption. Tune in and find out how Martin, "The Disruptor” is changing Google+ and his own Business model.

martin shervington1,276,607*ClearVoice is for writers and bloggers.* This is going to be a great presentation of a FREE tool for writers, bloggers and the like :D There is a paid service for publishers looking to connect with writers, and guess what? This means you may well have new ways for your skills to be found i.e. more paid writing work for you! Check out www.clearvoice.com and you'll see this new way for authors profiles to gain visibility. *The relationship with Plus Your Business:* Seeing as we love G+ and authorship, we thought this was a great way to bring @110476399899930103489 into the community, especially as @117367840058838921791 is in the PYB Academy. _This is not a sponsored event, but we may well chat about opportunities in the future!_ And it will be none other than @101483462606059283606 who will lead us through it all. *So, what is it all about?* Well, from their website... ClearVoice Search is the FIRST content platform to measure and categorize online content creators.  The score takes into account website value/reach, frequency of content posted, amount of content online, number of publications and social amplification. ClearVoice Score mathematically gauges the true value of today’s digital writers. ClearVoice started as a freelancer onboarding/editorial workflow tool, years before ClearVoice Score was developed. ClearVoice writer topics are a collection of a content creator’s full work and the topics they write about. The “popular topics” are a comparison of those authors and what they write about. The average score of all verified content authors is 45.007 on Google+ and 44.176 on Twitter. More people have authenticated Twitter authorship than Google+. Twitter has approximately 80% verified authors, while Google+ has just 20%. ClearVoice is completely built in-house with a robust engineering staff. _Intrigued? Well, see you then!_Everything the Google+ Community needs to know about ClearVoice!2014-08-27 18:00:0059

martin shervington1,276,607You know I spend most of my time on Google+, right? Well, increasingly I've been valuing the role of using Twitter alongside - the cross platform connections make a huge difference to building relationships. So, I thought you all may like to dig a little deeper and there is no one better to ask in than @108947920975167979671 on this one as he is just bringing out a new edition to his book. He has a solid business view of social as well. So, hope to see you on Wednesday; and we will be taking questions so please ask away! About the book: The book was initially created to solve a problem. The most common question am I asked is, "Can you help me understand Twitter?"  That is just not something that can be addressed over a cup of coffee! So I wrote this book, first to help my students, but it caught on has loyal fans all around the world.  The Tao of Twitter teaches you the practical MINDSET for success, not just a bunch of theoretical or technical suggestions. If you follow the strategy in the book, I know it can work for you because I have seen it impact hundreds of lives. The Tao of Twitter is beyond a book. It's a movement. Welcome to a global community that is unleashing the power of this amazing communication platform to connect to the world and drive new business benefits in wonderful and unexpected ways! The Tao of Twitter!

Daria Musk3,765,863*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same.

Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies.

martin shervington1,276,607*Duct Tape Selling!* Get ready to have your mind expanded by @103952215474318614668! I had the good fortune to have an introduction to him by @117993364889755405074 at the Social Media Marketing World conference earlier this year. With a new book out, this seemed like the perfect excuse to catch up and have a fast paced, crammed pack session with John as he lets you know all about his latest book 'Duct Tape Selling', and what you can expect to learn.  Here is a taster for you.... "A new paradigm gives salespeople the tools to think and act more like successful marketers  The art of selling has evolved tremendously over the last few years. Today’s hectic pace demands that sales professionals rethink their strategies and practices. They must attract, teach, convert, serve, and measure while developing an individual brand that stands for trust and expertise. Now the popular author of Duct Tape Marketing teaches sales professionals how to apply the tactics of traditional marketing to their daily work. In Duct Tape Selling, salespeople will learn how to develop a marketing-based system to dramatically increase their effectiveness, stand above their competitors, and add value to their customer relationships. Jantsch flips the traditional business model—where marketers owned the message while sellers owned the relationships—on its head. These days, he argues, marketers must get better at relationships and sales must perfect the message and delivery." Find out more here: http://ducttapeselling.com/ Sound good?

According to Wikipedia: _May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's films series, books and culture.[2] The date was chosen as "May the 4th" due to its sounding similar to the series' phrase "May the Force be with you" in which fans commonly say "May the fourth be with you". The reference was first used on May 4, 1979 when Margaret Thatcher's political party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News following her taking office as Prime Minister that stated "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations._ _In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Produced by Sean Ward and Alice Quinn, festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web's best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The second annual edition took place on Friday, May 4, 2012_ Fans (even government officials[6]) have celebrated Star Wars in a variety of ways in social media and on television. Since 2013, Disney Parks have celebrated the holiday with several Star Wars events and festivities.[7][8][9] The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.[10]Star Wars Day - May the 4th Be With You2014-05-04 23:00:0051

Discussing how communication and changing technology has affected the life/work of my guest. So who's my guest to discuss group communication you ask?! Many of us easily forget how often we work in groups. Well one person who has always espoused the importance of groups, communities, and tribes is @114918475211209783081. So who better to have talking to my students about group communication today! With the incredible tools we have, such as Google+, Google Drive, Google Hangouts and more group communication hasn't only become easier, but it's gone global! Understanding how we can most effectively communicate in groups then, especially considering cultural differences is imperative to business today. Let's just hope my students see that by the end of the show ;) As always I'd also like to thank @100470926227322431614 for running my cameras for me (it's really early in the morning for him) and @115091224082668507135 for the mad imaging skills on the banner!

martin shervington1,276,607As you may know, the cube has been somewhat like a nemesis to me 33 years, my kryptonite. The things I could have done, like be Prime Minister, climb Everest...get a job etc ;P So, on this day I think we focus on puzzling with the cube, sharing cool pics of the creativity around the cube and generally reveling in the delight it brings to so many people.  I am moving to San Diego Monday so wanted to make sure we all have a date in the diary for us to play on #RubikTuesday . There will be a hangout as well, and maybe a live 'solving' the cube show (we'll see on that one). Everyone is welcome to the event and I am sure there will be some training videos flowing about beforehand too.  Look forward to seeing you then!Fun with all things 'Rubik'!2014-03-18 15:00:0045

martin shervington1,276,607*Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?* We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future. Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too! *What is 'Youtility' all about?* Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success. You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?” If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility." Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0073

martin shervington1,276,607*The event:* This week we have a special treat in store. I will be joined by best-selling author David Carter to discuss his book 'Breakthrough' and how we can apply his approach in every day life. I've hungout with David and he is awesome. Really. And his very select client list is second to none. But this is all about you... David says, "I believe that the purpose of life is being and becoming the very best version of ourselves. Every day we face dozens of choices. We must ask ourselves, “Which choice will help me become the very best version of myself that I can possibly be?” Understanding this simple truth, and committing to it, is what separates the best from the rest." So, join me this Wednesday, welcome David to Google+, and I am sure there will be personal and business applications throughout this session. Also... *A freebie:* Here is a free PDF from David to get you ready for the event: http://martinsherv.com/8 *About the book:* BREAKTHROUGH is a practical guide to personal mastery by David C. M. Carter, who is widely regarded as the world's leading mentor. It reveals his Top 20 most effective BREAKTHROUGH ideas - previously only accessible to his select handful of exclusive international clients. The message and intent of THE MENTOR in BREAKTHROUGH is simply this - that you choose to become the very best version of yourself - and keep on choosing it - no matter what. With simple, easy-to-action BREAKTHROUGHs outlined in each chapter, complete with 'how-to' tools - you'll no longer have any excuses to live anything less than the life you were destined to live! *Want to hear what others say?* http://www.davidcmcarter.com/testimonials/ (very cool) See you then!An interview with David Carter - the world's leading mentor.2013-12-11 20:00:0057

Joshua Berg37,893*Has your website been hit by the Google Panda, Google Penguin, or the EMD (Exact Match Domain) Update algorithms in the last year?* _Do you have a business site that mysteriously lost its high ranking in Google search almost overnight?_ _Has your website traffic progressively gotten worse over the last 1 to 2 years, no matter how much work & money you spend on it?_ _Did you previously invest a great deal optimizing your site's keywords and/or, building volumes of backlinks to your website?_ _Do you have some knowledge of SEO & have you used any SEO tools & website plugins for keyword optimization?_ If any of the above sounds familiar, you've probably been visited by the 3 ghosts of Christmas Panda, Prenguin & the EMD Update. So I've invited a well known & experienced ghost buster to come & break it down for us. +Eric Enge *is very knowledgeable on this subject, has written & talked a lot about these algorithms, how to clean up the old SEO mess, making reconsideration requests & sorting things out with Google. And I have no doubt you will get the goods on this one.* I have seen many websites affected by these algorithms & many people don't even know it, besides that they lost a lot of website traffic. So at this special event we're going to get into the nitty gritty details on both how to tell if you've been affected & exactly how to go about recovery. If you're not sure whether this applies to your site, I'll bet it either does, or it will & you won't want to miss out on this. #GooglePenguin #GooglePanda #REALSMOhangouts  Google Panda & Penguin Discovery & Recovery - REALSMO2013-11-14 22:30:0074

This HOA Event is aimed at the Google Plus Community called *Plus Your Business* http://goo.gl/qwIf4 but anyone interested in doing hangouts well is more than welcome to attend. One of the best ways to master the Google Plus Hangouts tool is to watch others use it and learn from what they do right and what they do wrong. The hangouts experts in this event have seen many shows and can tell you what works well and what does not. It is a good idea to be a part of other people's HOA shows before you host  your own, and one way to do that is to be a filmstrip guest. Learn what it takes to be a great guest & you will get invited into live shows again and again. Doing many shows will get you used to the HOA structure and ready to run your own or simply be the best guest you can be to make a great  impression. _Feel free to leave comments on what you think makes a good or bad HOA performance.

NASA2,840,292Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008308  
martin shervington1,276,607*This weekend:* Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about iMA and how it can help you understand the differences in people, communicate and connect with them on their wavelength.               *The principles:* Realise that although that every person is as unique as her/his thumbprint, each person has a Comfort Zone (iMA high colour) that is positioned within a systematic, predictable framework. Recognise that your iMA high colour  influences what you want, need, and expect from yourself and others. People will tell you their iMA high colour if you know what to listen and look for. Each of the 4 iMA high colours speaks and understands a different dialect. Every person speaks one dialect naturally, in which they feel the most comfortable giving and receiving information. Respond to people in her/his iMA high dialect and you will reduce tension and increase communication, co-operation and trust. *About James Knight:* James, the creator of iMA, is brilliantly enthusiastic and dedicated to personal growth and development. He will create energy in the hangout, adding humour to the presentations, and sharing information and tools necessary to make positive changes in your life. *Sound interesting?* Well, join us for the on-air event and learn more about yourself and others. #iMA  Introduction to the universal language of iMA2013-02-17 20:00:0031

"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00625

Trever McGhee98,002Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Valentine's Day Stats!

We've teamed up with +SEMrush​ for the love of stats.
How did they do it? Well...
"We gathered 2000 long tail keywords, containing 'commercial' words (gift / present / offer / buy / sale / cheap / discount / deal / coupon / best, etc) and the word 'valentine' (US database). All the trends and lists of the 'winners' were identified considering just this list of keywords."
Enjoy sharing the love :D

Social Media Volume Dips

Does it matter if a social media channel shows dips in the volume of posts that appear there? The answer depends on a few factors that have to do with channel maturity.

Publishing in a world of data
Semantic Technologies and Our Web-like Existence

An excerpt from my new blog post for +Ontotext. Check the entire text here: http://goo.gl/DzBD5n

"The swelling amounts of data produced every day propel the rise of a new breed of publishers, ones who strive to adapt to the rapid social change and find the most appropriate structures and processes to enable content creation, publishing and distribution in a world of constant connectivity where data never sleeps."


p.s. I love the graphic designer's image for my metaphor (which you will see in the upcoming slides :)) about semantic technologies being the "cutting" of a raw diamond (content).

Evolving organizations to be more effective. (16 mins)

Thanks +Denis Labelle for the ping.

This          
Modern work is about solving brand-new problems every day, flexibly, in brand-new ways. Too often, an overload of processes and sign-offs and internal metrics keeps us from doing our best. A new way to think of work: as a collaboration, not a competition.

Famous Last Words

Italian artist Raphael’s last word was simply, “Happy.” and Frank Sinatra dying, simply said, “I’m losing it.” We are fascinated by those final moments of lucidity because we hope that, somehow, in those moments we may just catch glimpse of a greater truth, an inkling of something that lies beyond us and is greater than us which somehow allows us to rationalize the finite timeline we are currently running on.

Famous last words are collected (http://goo.gl/lNqtK0) poured over, analyzed: http://goo.gl/AH7lgM, rationalized and our brains then compute a way for us to retain our sanity, deal with something inevitable and still go on.

I know, kind of a dumper reading this on a Sunday but there is a real point to it that’s actually a little more uplifting so bear with me. The Buddhist view on death and the afterlife involves Karma (http://goo.gl/TGyKj) and consciousness, both of which have found fertile ground of late in theoretical physics. John Wheeler, in particular, the same man who coined the term “Black Hole” (https://goo.gl/w9YFmD) has also floated the notion of the digital universe: http://goo.gl/TGyKj which, at a stretch, makes a sentient program of each of us.

Energy that cannot be created or destroyed (http://goo.gl/69z3Fs) which suggests that it comes from somewhere prior and it goes somewhere at some point - https://goo.gl/poCEWD. That point many agree (amongst them Stephen Wolfram - https://goo.gl/lkrmpR, the man who created the semantic search engine Wolfram Alpha - https://goo.gl/rtRllG) is one that, perversely enough, is not that far away from what many of the world’s main religions actually preach: http://goo.gl/648CYl.

Here’s the interesting noodle-twisting moment you’ve been expecting: Does, syllogistic thought, despite its apparent rigor, simply replace the narratives we tell ourselves when we use mythology (http://goo.gl/DfuaCU) or legends (http://goo.gl/RzTJqF) and is doomed to eventually lead us to the exact same place albeit via a higher path?

We are, after all, much smarter these days, but no less afraid of dying. The tools we use to think with have hardly changed over the last 100,000 years (http://goo.gl/aEn5pY). So is there a real point in worrying about it? The fact that more of us perhaps are examining this part of our lives (http://goo.gl/fgnYV7) is not necessarily a bad sign.

We focus so much on dying because we seek to understand its opposite. We know that dying, irrespective of what really happens to us, is indeed “…an awful big adventure” - http://goo.gl/p3bDcG. Stephen Cave, points out that our awareness of death and our attempts to deal with it are a great leveler: https://goo.gl/ztYWUB. They form a tendril of commonality that unites us all through our humanity.

It is actually these two things: increased and increasing awareness and the commonality of our humanity that actually begin to make a difference. Our sense of our passing has gone through stages. We used to think that the afterlife was some kind of reward for our current behavior: https://goo.gl/xZIO0i. A sensible ploy, if you like, that made perfect sense when we needed a quick means of establishing a common framework of values in a growing social setting: https://goo.gl/06TGa8 which would allow us to “just get along” (https://goo.gl/DfXDxX).

It then became a means of comforting us against the horrific or the unknown. (https://goo.gl/lHKzub). It now has become the means through which we actually experience the full richness of life: http://goo.gl/gxt2VZ. It allows us to form social constructs that are complex and continue to build upon their complexity because we constantly invest time and effort in their elaboration. Even more scarily we seem to be able to do all this, acting as discreet entities without really being even that: http://goo.gl/s2sZdP.

So, here we are. Sugar flowing through our veins, caffeine exciting our synapses, reading not just how we rationalize the moment of our ending, and thinking about it, but beginning to understand the complexity of our being and enjoy the miracle of our lives. Whether we are religious or not, whether we believe in an afterlife that stems from an organized belief system or not, whether we believe that things just end or that we go on, the truth of it is that, in the moment there is an undeniable power in our connections and an incredibly elegant beauty in our perceptions.

So, with cookies, croissants, donuts and chocolate cake close to hand I can only raise a cup of double espresso and say: Have a great Sunday, wherever you are. ___Got your coffee at the ready? :D
