Comments, comments are no fun… // Nov 04 // JLB

For a long time, I’ve known not to read the comments section of any blog post or news article I’ve found online. People seem to lose any sense of decency and decorum as soon as they start typing in that little box at the bottom of the page. Turns out, I’m not the only one […]

How to use Pinterest to win friends and influence people… // Jul 05 // JLB

So…Uniqlo, an awesome Japanese clothes company (I buy their clothes every time I’m in NYC. They’re affordable and really durable. I have two linen shirts that I bought 6 years ago and they still make my regular rotation), figured out an interesting way to “market” on Pinterest. I use the term “market” loosely because they […]

A complete guide to Google+ // Jul 29 // JLB

Long before Google+ even went into beta testing, the blogosphere was abuzz with rumors of Google’s newest attempt at entering the social media world–some might remember the complete wash of Google Buzz–and in that moment in time, Plus was a huge mystery.

Very few people know exactly what to do with new service or what its features are.

Social Media – Is It Working for You? // Apr 21 // JLB

We’ve been talking (and tweeting) a lot lately about the power of social media for businesses. JLB has been using outlets like Twitter and Facebook for a few years now, and at the beginning of 2011, we unveiled a social media package for our clients. It’s been received well, and we’ve signed up a dozen […]

Podcamp – Nashville's top-shelf (interactive) unconference // Mar 19 // JLB

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve attended PodCamp. It’s not that we opted out of last year for any particular reason, but we didn’t make it a priority. This year is different. This year, we are going again. And this year, it’s bigger than it’s ever been. “What’s PodCamp?” you ask… well, it’s […]

Why HootSuite is so sweet… // Feb 21 // JLB

So we’ve been playing a little at Camp JLB. The latest toy? HootSuite. If you’re new to social networking, you might not know what HootSuite does. If you’ve been social networking, you might not realize how far HootSuite extends.
