Why It’s Time for the Content Marketing Haters to Move On in 2013"Marcus Sheridan: I found your blog post so you have been able to market your content! ;) I do think Shel Israel knows what he is talking about. From WikiPedia: "Shel Israel (born August, 1944) is a writer and speaker on social media issues. He co-authored with Robert Scoble the book Naked Conversations, How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers (John Wiley & Son 2006). He has completed a second book called Twitterville on business uses for Twitter, published in September 2009. He has contributed editorially to BusinessWeek, Dow Jones Co, and FastCompany.TV." I left the following comment on Forbes: Shel: You are such "nice guy," so I don't understand the use of the word "hate" in your title. ;) I will not call myself a regular mainstream journalist anytime soon. Please feel free to label me a "citizen journalist." I think that Forbes magazine is an esteemed publication and I have belonged to the Forbes blog network. I wonder if the editor missed the word "not" in the following sentence: "Now with Techcrunch, Huffington Post and the hordes of us here at Forbes, there really is much difference between those of us who post on the internet and those who originally published on paper." I use the word "conversational marketing" in order to describe social media. So, keep the conversation going! I hope I have added at least $0.02 to this thread! ;)"
Why It’s Time for the Content Marketing Haters to Move On in 2013"Ileane: I agree with your distaste of pop-up stuff. I am allergic to this, especially the new ones with a huge window for subscribing to a newsletter or liking a Facebook page before you actually have been able to visit the site. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Lyceum, I see your point and there is no disrespect for Mr. Isreal on my behalf. As I mentioned in my comment on the blog. I hate pop-ups and I refuse to visit a site regularly that shows me 3 pop-ups even if it is Forbes. If it were any other URL people would refer to the site as "spammy". With that being said, I find it ironic that in the article "journalist" are held up on a pedestal compared to mere "bloggers" who may or may not (like myself) chose to annoy readers with those "spammy" pop-ups. Just my personal opinion.... "
