Making The New Facebook Interface Simpler

Hey, did you know your new Facebook sidebar is showing activities that aren’t in “All Stories” (the main feed) If like me,  this means you have been MISSING things you want to know about try this:

Facebook_Chronological_Updates

Show All Facebook Status and Activities in Chronological Order

Make a list called everybody, add everybody, when you then view this list,  you get a normal chronological feed. Much recognition to Alex Thomas for the tip!

Leadership | Memetics

Today I watched a great video (below) talking on the topic of great leadership and why some succeed above others.

Understanding the way we think about the companies and products we deal with on a daily basis is one of my passions. A book that got me started early on was Richard Brodie’s “Virus of the Mind”.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your thoughts on the book and/or video, or to recommend any similar media 🙂

My next entry will be post WEMF, looking forward to the 4 hour drive to Madawaska Valley Ontario with my buddies from Discotoast Inc. Hopefully we will come home with some great memories (and a few new clients!).

Signing off for now!

Introducing.. Marketing Internship, Hillside and WEMF

This marks my first true blog entry for PJThomas Consulting. I suppose a good beginning would be to discuss my current influences, both creative and intellectual.

I have been working as an marketing/client services intern with Discotoast Inc.

Toaster-LogoIt is a creative design studio that my friend Jory Bice dreamed up (more?) than a decade ago, when it was just him and his computer. Scan forward to 2011 though, and you will find a funky studio space filled with the likes of Brian Dunseith (Client Service,Marketing), Jory Bice (Lead Creative), Chris Hodge (Lead Technical) not forgetting Matt Soares (Developer) and us Interns.

On the intellectual side, my focus for this internship is primarily inbound marketing techniques. I have been studying Hubspot‘s Inbound Marketing University offerings, and hope to become a certified re-seller and trainer of their product. The opportunity to observe and assist the development of projects from the first phone call, to formal proposal, creative development, and technical acrobatics to get it all in working form, has been invaluable, and my biggest thanks to all the DT crew!

On the more exciting note of creative influences, Discotoast has always been at the forefront of design in what I like to call the “urban artisitic landscape”. This year we will be at the World Electronic Music Festival, manning a tent to promote web design packages particularly tailored for Musicians, DJs, and Music Producers!!

WEMF-Tickets

 

This will be the second three-day music festival I will get to attend in a work related capacity this summer, as the Hillside Music Festival in Guelph is fast approaching too 🙂  This part of my job is of course the most fun. Mingling with the artists, feeding off their creative energy, and trying to help them promote themselves to the world at large.

Anyhow, I met earlier this week with George Chow of Peaches and Green, and Akira Inman, dry stone mason extraordinaire, to discuss social media strategies and web design.. time to follow up!!

TTFN

Business begins!

Doors are officially open!
