“Just what is” has become more of a personal brand to me. In the old days, people used to convey their message and communicate with others using letter and other traditional media. is focused on revolutionizing the way we converse with each other. We’re taking “the letter” to it’s next version.

It used to be about selling directly at the customers and marketers felt that it didn’t matter what the customer thought. is moving beyond that. It’s all about conversation, not selling. Merging communication and marketing shouldn’t be a new thing and we strive to help build a dialogue between your customers (not consumers or end users – not personal or genuine enough). examines all sorts of strategy on how you can better yourself and evolve your communication strategy across all areas of the web. Social media is not the only way where you can be transparent, authentic, or even have a conversation. Things that are covered include shaping your website design/development, learning more about how you can effectively use email marketing, understand a better way to reach your customers with online advertising, and much more.

Lately I have seen a proliferation of social media and less emphasis on web design of the late 1990s and early 2000s so I’ve added those to my list of things to examine and hopefully I’ll be able to make an impression on you and other readers on how you can take advantage of things like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, blogs, and videos to increase your audience base while not neglecting the traditional online media (web design & application development) and the new age media (online advertising, email marketing, SEO, etc.).
