You know what I’m talking about. If your boss comes up to you says something about the ‘harlem shake’ you better it’hope it’s not about doing one, or you might as well Gangnam Style right out of the office.

We posted a b-l-o-g at work written by Dylan about people coming late to the meme. It’s basically THE WORST thing you can do for your company, office, or brand. You risk being known as ‘behind the times’ forever.

When it comes to memes, either get on that bus early or don’t get on at all.

The viral video game is all about speed.

Going “viral” is a funny thing. You can’t know if your video will ever go viral. You can’t plan for it to go viral. You can’t predict it will go viral. You can’t guarantee it will, or force it to go viral. The only thing you can ever really know about a viral video is that its popularity has faded. Eventually, everything viral dies. Goes six feet under. Kicks the bucket. Buys the farm.

Read it here: A VIRAL DEATH.

This is serious people.

In other news, we found a new guitar in the library and I am making Sean play it for me. He hasn’t played much lately and his fingers are hurting but he is so good at it. True Lies Romance.  (Good movie though!)

Sexy Pirate

I was a sexy pirate, but what should I be next? I went out as a Zombie and was sexier than the rest! I’ve been out as an Olsen with my sister Mary Kate. I’ve been a nasty nun . I was drunk with pregnant traits. I’ve been a super hero a ghost and a witch. I was an old lady and she was a sexy bitch. I don’t know what to wear, I’m pulling out my hair!! Oh, what to be on Halloween!!

I always find it interesting to read about social media & blogger outreach. This is a new industry and it’s changing as we develop it. Here’s a Storify on some interesting things I found yesterday.

Saw this Tweet about something Scott Stratton posted: 

RT @mstradiotto: Easy to see why @unmarketing pulls his car over to read @jaybaer : "Blogger Outreach Changes the PR Timeline Forever" http://t.co/h0p7hAtpreenachohan

Lead me to this post  by Jay Baer which starts with a recent controversy between bloggers and a PR agency after a blogger outreach dinner. 



Blogger Outreach Changes the PR Timeline ForeverPR behemoth Ketchum (the PR agency of record for ConAgra) caught it’s foot in a bear trap of its own manufacture recently, when it thunk up and perpetrated a bait and switch blogger outreach program. Evidently, Ketchum invited a group of bloggers to a restaurant in NYC, where they would enjoy a &quo…
Some of my fav parts of the post in quotes below:
lh6.ggpht.com
“We”re entering an era of the Invitation Avalanche where consumers are besieged by offers to click, connect, friend, follow, download, and more. And the same is true of bloggers. Any bloggers with a decent audience are constantly asked to write, review, or participate. So what makes your “special blogger event” so special? It”s not the food, or the celebrity chef, or the restaurant. It”s the fact that the invite comes from YOU, a person they recognize and respect.”

It got me thinking about a very useful piece of information someone told me years ago “LIFE IS ABOUT BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS”.  

“you have to build relationships with bloggers before you need them, not when you need them”
Then I found this video: 
INFLUENCERS TRAILERINFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment. The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Influencer marketing, (also Influence Marketing) is a form of marketing….  identifies the individuals that have influence over potential buyers, and orients marketing activities around these influencers.

Ottawa Fashion Week in Tweets

Today I had a call with someone I did not know in London, UK. (So many London things lately!) I gave her business tips for her website and some things to do in the internet that can help her business. She booked a call on clarity.fm and I then I called her. We chatted for about 20 min.

 Her Review:

The time spent chatting with Casie seemed like 5 minutes! She gave a to-do list targeted for my brand with well-thought points of the benefits and ones not worth my time for now. I got exactly what I wanted out of it. For my call, she was an expert on social media, online shopping, branding and trends.

If you ever wanna ring me and ask advice about your business, career, life, outfits, whatever, you can ring me through Clarity. It’s $1.50 a minute! Clarity was founded by Canadian entrepreneur Dan Martell last year. He had one wish for his recent birthday and to help make his wish come true, I am donating an hour of my time on Clarity this Saturday, January 5th. I’ll tweet out the link in Saturday morning and you can ring me for freeeeeeeee.

Screen Shot 2013-01-03 at 10.22.36 AM

I forgot about this great lil’ vid Steve Carty shot of me this summer, it’s on my Clarity profile.

In other news, changed my Twitter header/background to this cartoon of me that was published in Walrus magazine last year. I hated that article. No press is bad press though, right? Urghhhh. Love the drawing though! THANKS GUYS 🙂
