Content Was King, but Context is the Present and Future

2012 September 21st | by Eddie Pietrucha

"Content is king" Have you heard that before?  From the best we can tell this idea has been floating around the internet since 1996 when Bill Gates coined the phrase, and marketers for the last decade and a half have been quick to run with it.  While some still believe it, many realize that technology has changed the way we consume content forever.

Social Media - In our business it's a term we hear every single day and something that comes up in just about every client meeting we have.  It's no surprise that when we say "social media" everyone immediately thinks of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the multitude of new sites launching every week.  But is that it, is that really all "social media" is? We believe "social media" is so much more.  As defined by Merriam-Webster,... Continue Reading »

2012 June 13th | by Eddie Pietrucha

Let me start off by saying I had no intention of writing this post but while travelling on a flight from Chicago to Miami yesterday I stumbled upon this subject.  Normally I’m an earphones guy from the moment I walk on a plane.  I like to take my flight time to relax or get some work done, either way I’m not one for chitchat with the person next to me.

Why Passion Isn’t Enough

2012 May 22nd | by Eddie Pietrucha
